With the release of Apex Legends Mobile finally arriving, many fans of Respawn Entertainment's hit battle royale are excited to double-dip and experience Apex Legends again for the first time via their Android or IOS Devices.

The largest reason? Arguably that has to be the "mobile-first legend" of Fade, an exclusive character to Apex Legends Mobile that may never make their way over to the "HD" versions of the game on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.


Unlocking Fade is a pretty confusing process, however, so here's how you can do it for yourself.

The good news for Apex Legends fans wanting to jump in on the Mobile action and experience the new character for themselves is that unlocking Fade is completely free for the time being. The bad news is that it may take a little while.


To unlock Fade, you need to collect ten tokens known as "Fade Pieces" which can then be redeemed for the character. Simple right? Well on paper it certainly is that easy but in practice, it's a little more complicated.

To receive these tokens, players will need to rank up on Apex Legends Mobile's battle pass. Luckily, the tokens are all available on the free battle pass meaning that you won't have to spend a penny to get Fade. The downside, of course, is that players will need to get all the way up to rank 25 to get their hands on the final two tokens needed to unlock and play the new Legend.

The best way to do this will be to hyperfocus on any of the weekly missions available to you, potentially using any task cards you have laying around to skip over the more challenging ones stopping your progress.
