All skins: Merit based ✔️ Crafting metals 🚫

★★★★ Newbie

Most people i’ve talked to that have been playing these Battle Royals games, from Fortnite to Apex, have lost interest in Apex for one simple reason: inability to earn even a small portion of the legend and gun skins available. After the initial hype of a games opening begins to dull down, it is things like completing challenges with characters and guns to earn different skins that keep people playing. It forces them to use different characters and guns, which with every new combination creates a new kind of gameplay. Look at Cod4 & Modern warfare... the only reason people continued to play for years after is to get things like fall camo and complete tasks to earn rewards. For apex, you have to wait to get an Apex pack, hope you either get a skin in it, or get like 200 crafting metals (of the ~1000 needed per legend skin), and then wait until you rank up again. If they do not fix this, this game will dwindle away by the end of summer.

I appreciate the response, but my main point is that in order for people to stay interested, there needs to be challenges applied to guns and legends that once completed, earn the player crafting metals. Like if you win with a character, receive this amount of crafting metals. If you get 50 headshots with this gun, receive crafting metals. If you get this many kills in skulltown, receive crafting metals. Challenges like that keep players involved, as it has been proven in most games in recent history. I’ve seen a lot of posts about this, and quite frankly if getting skins doesn’t get significantly more accessible, I along with most players will stop playing. I’ve heard like 75% of twitch viewership has gone down for apex, and I would bet that lack of ability to get skins is a large reason for that. At first, people watch to see streamers gameplay and strategy, and then after the initial hype is gone they watch to see how to achieve challenges
