What is Heatwave in Apex Legends?
Heatwave is the new limited-time mode in Apex Legends as part of its Sun Squad Collection event. In this game mode, heatwaves will periodically trigger throughout the match, which will cause you to take damage from the sun. You’ll need to get indoors or take cover under objects to avoids the sun’s rays. If you’re outside during a heatwave, you can slide to cool down, or use a heatshield to beat the heat. There will also be unique items — like sunglasses, which can be obtained from care packages — that’ll allow you to mitigate the effects of the sun.
What are the Sun Squad Collection Event items?
There are 24 limited-time cosmetics that you can obtain during the Sun Squad Collection Event.

If you unlock all 24 cosmetics before the end of the event, you’ll receive Ash’s heirloom, Strongest Link.
You can also receive rewards from completing challenges during the event. You can earn up to 1,600 points per day, so make sure to come back daily for a variety of rewards.
