Highlights
Bangalore's prestige skin in Apex Legends can set players back by up to $160 USD for all 40 collection event items and the associated unlock reward.
If you have 1920 crafting materials and craft all the Rare items from the event, you will need to purchase only 23 event packs instead of 40.
Cosmetics are by no means necessary to enjoy the game and getting the prestige skin does not unlock any gameplay benefits.

In addition to the heirloom Bangalore has, she now also has a Prestige Skin in Apex Legends. Prestige skins also cost heirloom shards to craft or you can collect the 40 event items and get access to it. Just like the heirloom, the prestige skin will set you back by around $160 but you can bring down the price heavily if you have around 2000 crafting materials. If you are looking to acquire the prestige skin for Bangalore in Apex Legends, here’s what you need to do.

Acquiring Bangalore’s prestige skin in Apex Legends

If you collect all 40 event items, you’ll unlock the newest Prestige skin for Bangalore - “Apex Commander”. Prestige Skins are Mythic cosmetic Legend skins that each have 3 tiers (3 versions total of the Prestige Skin). Upon unlocking tier 1 of a Prestige Skin, a player will be able to complete challenges to unlock Tier 2 and Tier 3 at no additional cost.

Players can continue to complete these challenges, once available, even after the end of the event. Once a Prestige Skin Tier’s challenge is completed a player will unlock that respective tier’s version of the Legend skin which can then be equipped. Players have the ability to equip any unlocked tier of a Prestige Skin once owned.

  • Gaiden Event Packs are available for a limited time during the Gaiden Event, but the items will be available in the standard Apex Pack pool of items after the event ends.

  • Gaiden Event Packs guarantee you one non-duplicate Gaiden Event item.

  • The new event will introduce 40 new cosmetic items around the Gaiden theme

  • Gaiden items can be crafted with crafting metals. After two seasons, crafting metal costs of Gaiden Items may be reduced.

The packs cost 400 Apex Coins each and you need to collect a total of 40 items. With Respawn featuring some special deals in the store for the event items, you end up saving some coins and there is also a free Apex Pack that brings the price of the 40 items down by around 10 if you grab all the bundles as well.

There are 16 Rare items that you can craft for 1,920 Crafting Materials which means that you need to purchase only 23 packs instead of 40, if you count the one free pack. This by itself brings down the cost of the entire collection event to 9200 coins instead of 16,000. You save approximately $60 and if you have additional crafting materials to get all the Epics as well, for 12800 crafting materials, the cost of the prestige skin goes down to around $16.
