Season 5 was only less than 2 weeks away but Respawn had a surprise in store for us. It was announced on April 24th that the Apex Legends ‘Battle Armor Event‘ will be taking place. This also means that Season 4 will be extended out for 1 more week. So what exactly is the Battle Armor Event? Well, let’s take a look, shall we?
Strap in for the Battle Armor Event! 🛡
Drop in with your armor locked and prove you’ve got the skills to come out on top! Beginning April 28, the Battle Armor Event will run up until the start of Season 5, which kicks off May 12.

During the ‘Battle Armor Event‘, players will spawn in with shields already equipped and a P2020. All other armor will be removed from the loot pool but shield cells and batteries will stay. Every few days the armor that you spawn in with will change. Here are the scheduled days for armor spawns:
- Tuesday, April 28 @ 10am PDT – Saturday, May 2nd @ 10am PDT: Level 1 (White) armor only.
- Saturday, May 2 @ 10:01 am PDT – Wednesday, May 6 @ 10am PDT: Level 2 (Blue) armor
- Wednesday, May 6 @ 10:01am PDT – Saturday, May 9 @ 10am PDT: Level 3 (Purple) armor
- Saturday, May 9 @ 10:01 am PDT – Tuesday, May 12th @ 10am PDT (when Season 5 kicks off): Evo Armor only
The last few days where players in with Evo Armor is what players have been asking for since the shields release. Better late than never! Now with Respawn testing out this new armor system what surprises are in store for Season 5? What day are you looking forward to the most during the ‘Battle Armor Event’?
