The second half of Apex Legends Mobile Season 2, titled Hyperbeat, is packed with seasonal events that reward participating players with cosmetic skins, in-game currency, XP Boost cards and more. Way of the Wolf, the latest event to join Hyperbeat’s ever-expanding LTE roster, tasks players with completing a series of Loba-themed challenges to earn Loba’s favorite kind of loot: the kind that’s all hers — or yours, in this case .
The event consists of six challenges, each of which rewards players with a certain number of Challenge Points upon completion. Accumulate enough challenge points and you’ll start unlocking prizes — including the mobile-exclusive Fleeting Look Loba banner pose. Read on for a comprehensive guide to the Way of the Wolf event, its challenges, and all the sweet loot you’ll unlock by completing them.
A splash page advertising the Way of the Wolf event should be one of the first things that appear on your screen when you open Apex Legends Mobile. Select “Go!” to be taken directly to the event center. But don’t sweat it if you accidentally close the popup — just select the purple “Season Event” banner on the right side of the main lobby screen. From there, select the Limited Time tab at the top of the screen, then select Way of the Wolf from the vertical list of events on the right side of the screen.
Challenges and challenge points
Once you arrive at the Way of the Wolf Event Hub, you’ll see a list of six challenges, each of which will reward you with a certain number of Challenge Points upon completion. You will need a total of 100 challenge points to complete the event and earn all rewards.
The challenges of The Way of the Wolf event – and the number of Challenge Points you will receive for completing them – are as follows:
- Complete 5 battle royale matches as Loba, Octane or Pathfinder: 10 Challenge Points
- Finish in the Top 3 in battle royale twice as Loba, Lifeline or Octane: 15 Challenge Points
- Deal 1000 damage in battle royale as Loba, Bloodhound or Pathfinder: 20 Challenge Points
- Deal 2,000 damage in battle royale as Loba, Bangalore or Pathfinder: 25 Challenge Points
- Kill 10 enemies in Battle Royale as Loba, Bangalore or Lifeline: 25 Challenge Points
- Use Loba, Lifeline or Octane’s Ultimate 10 times in battle royale matches: 25 Challenge Points
As you accumulate challenge points, you’ll unlock a series of three rewards. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the prize tracker at the bottom of the screen, as you’ll need to redeem your rewards by manually selecting them on the event hub page once you’ve accumulated the number of Challenge Points required to unlock them.
The Way of the Wolf event rewards (and the number of Challenge Points required to unlock each) are as follows:
- 50 challenge points: 5 pieces of packaging
- 80 Challenge Points: 1,500 Hyperbeat Coins, used to redeem the season’s exclusive cosmetics from the Hyperbeat Store
- 100 Challenge Points: Loba’s fleeting appearance banner pose (Rare)
*10 Pack Pieces can be used to create a single Syndicate Pack.
Track your grades
As you may have noticed, completing all six challenges will earn you 120 challenge points, but you only need 100 to complete the event and earn all the rewards. If you’re having trouble with a challenge worth 20 Challenge Points or less, move on and come back to it later. You have 20 points of wiggle room when it comes to the challenges you complete.
Play as Loba
The Way of the Wolf event also complements another active event in Apex Legends Mobile that allows you to play as Loba without paying to unlock her. The event is only active until September 14th, so you’ll want to try it out before then, especially since so many challenges in Way of the Wolf require you to play as Loba (though you can, of course, play as other characters as well).
I play with friends
Apex is a game about teamwork. When it comes to challenges that require you to play a certain character, having teammates who won’t make it when you “steal” their master is always a good idea. If possible, team up with some friends (IRL or otherwise) and let them know ahead of time which character you plan to play. Take advantage of voice chat and make sure you stay close to your team.
The Way of the Wolf event is live until September 15th at 5pm. PT / 8 p.m. ET.
Apex Legends Mobile is available for download on Android and iOS devices.
