Apex Legends’ hectic gameplay and class system aren’t the only factors behind the game’s success. Its cosmetics-based monetization system allows players to show off their sense of style and lets developers make a profit without affecting the gameplay experience negatively.
During Apex’s launch in 2019, there were only a handful of skins available for each legend. Most of them were practically recolors and didn’t change anything about a legend’s character. Once the game became stable enough, Respawn Entertainment focused more on creating unique skins that would change the spirit of the game.
Pathfinder was one of the harder legends to come up with creative skins because of his limited design space. Though one could argue you could always experiment with out-of-character elements, Respawn usually tries its best to keep all the legends distinguishable even with their most unorthodox skins.
We’ve gathered the rarest Pathfinder skins in the game, so you can look even cooler while crossing a zipline. Some of these may not be available for purchase, since some are tied with seasonal events or battle passes. It’s unlikely for a battle pass skin to come back to the in-game shop, but seasonal event skins have a chance of returning around the same time they were released.
The following skins were introduced to Apex during seasonal or in-game events. They were either obtainable through in-game challenges, Apex packs, battle passes, or simply as a reward for performing an action.
Each new event-related skin is a candidate for becoming rare since it isn’t entirely clear whether they would ever be available again through the in-game shop. These skins are also an excellent way to show off how long you’ve been playing Apex, which can strike fear into your foes’ hearts.
Iron Man fans may be disappointed in this one since it looks quite different than Marvel’s War Machine. It’s still one of the most detailed Pathfinder skins, though, and it was only available throughout the Iron Crown collection event.
