Respawn Entertainment has added a host of new gun charms into Apex Legends with its new level cap increase.

Gun charms were originally introduced in Season 3 as a fun way to customize a player’s favorite weapon. Over time, these have taken many forms and models, from holiday-themed pumpkins to bobblehead legends and everything in between. Gun charms are applied to the left side of the weapon with only one charm per gun.

New Gun Charms Added to Apex Legends

Respawn has added an assortment of 36 new gun charms into Apex Legends. Of these, four will be awarded for every 100 levels earned after the previous level cap increase: at 200, 300, 400, and 500, respectively.

The other 32 will reportedly be available on a rotating basis in the Apex Legends in-game shop. According to the news post, they will also be available as rewards in Epic and Legendary Apex Packs.

For those unaware, Apex Packs are bundles containing three randomized cosmetic or crafting items. These include skins, gun charms, and/or the components needed to “craft” or trade in for both. Thanks to the level cap increase, players now have even more chances to earn Apex Packs.

Apex Packs can be earned for every certain mount of levels achieved. The new breakdown is as follows:

  • Level 2 - 20: One pack every level (19 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 22 - 300: One pack every two levels (140 Apex Packs total)
  • Level 305 - 500: One pack every five levels (40 Apex Packs total)

The complete sum of Apex Packs available will be 199. Hopefully, this will be enough for players to get the specific charm they want. If it isn’t, however, they can still purchase the individual charms from the in-game shop.

More information about the level cap increase and everything coming with it is available on the Apex Legends news page. All are set to go live on Dec. 3.
