Apex Legends Mobile’s mid-season Hyperbeat update brought many new events to the mobile version of Respawn’s hit battle royale. The latest in this series of events, a TDM-focused limited-time event called Deathmatch Mayhem launched this week, giving players access to all sorts of new prizes. The event challenges players to complete in-game feats, called Trial Tasks, in exchange for free in-game loot.
Players who complete all trial tasks will also be rewarded with the Marble Carapace Fade legend skin, a mobile-exclusive cosmetic for the game’s first mobile-only legend. Free Fade skins are hard to come by, so this is one event Fade majors won’t want to miss. Read on for a step-by-step guide to help you complete the Deathmatch Mayhem event and claim your prizes as quickly and easily as possible.
You will most likely come across a splash screen announcing the Deathmatch Mayhem event when you launch the Apex Legends Mobile app. Selecting “Go!” It will take you directly to the event hub, but if you accidentally pass it or it doesn’t appear, you can navigate to the hub manually by selecting the purple “Seasonal 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 “Deathmatch Mayhem” from the list of vertical events on the right side of the screen.
The event consists of six trial tasks and an additional final challenge that grants you Fade’s marble shell skin. To access the Final Task, you must complete the first six. You can only complete one trial task per day, after which the next task will unlock at 5pm PT/8pm ET. Don’t worry too much though: if you miss a trial task, you can complete a recovery mission. Recovery missions give you access to a bonus task, which automatically unlocks the next trial task upon completion. However, there are only a few bonus tasks and the game doesn’t say how many there are or what they consist of, so you’ll want to complete trial tasks on time whenever possible to keep things simple.
The event test tasks and their corresponding rewards are as follows:
- Complete 2 matches in Team Deathmatch mode: 800 Hyperbeat Coins
- Use an ultimate 2 times in Team Deathmatch mode: 1 quest card
- Get 10 assists in Team Deathmatch mode: 50 Flux
- Kill 3 enemies in a single TDM match – 1,500 Hyperbeat Coins
- Win 2 games in Team Deathmatch mode: 5 Pack Pieces
- Take down 3 enemies with SMGs in Team Deathmatch mode: 2000 Hyperbeat Coins
- Kill 10 enemies in Team Deathmatch mode: Legendary Marble Shell Fade skin (Common)
Don’t forget that the challenges in this event must be completed in Team Deathmatch mode – kills and takedowns in other game modes will not count towards completing the trial task.
In addition to the Fade skin, players who complete all trial tasks will receive a total of:
- 4,300 Hyperbeat Coins (used to redeem free cosmetics from the Hyperbeat Store)
- 1 quest card (used to auto complete season quests)
- 50 Flux (used to redeem legend skins in the “Crafting” section of the in-game store)
- 5-Piece Pack (10 pack pieces can be combined to form a single Syndicate Pack)
Despite being a common tier loot, Fade’s marble shell skin looks pretty fancy and is more on par with a rare tier skin in terms of quality. The cosmetic gives Fade’s skin a ghostly appearance in addition to altering the appearance of his suit and mask, so this event is definitely worth a look for players who are big fans of the grumpy legend, or those who just want to more money to unlock your favorite. skin from the VIP Section of the Hyperbeat Store.
The Deathmatch Mayhem event ends on September 27 at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET.
