Apex Legends Swimming Buddy Twitch Skin Announced for Pathfinder

by in Apex Legends | Jul, 15th 2020

Respawn Entertainment and Twitch have come together to reveal a new skin released for free for some players in Apex Legends. The latest skin is the Apex Legends Swimming Buddy skin for Pathfinder, and you can get it for free if you have Twitch Prime.

Apex Legends Swimming Buddy Skin Announced

The Apex Legends Swimming Buddy Pathfinder skin has been revealed for the game. It is this month’s free Apex Legends skin that you can get through Twitch. This is a pretty standard procedure that happens just about every month with the game and Twitch together.

As such, you likely already know about this whole thing, but if you are a Pathfinder main and want to get this new skin to fill out your collection, this is a fairly easy one to get. The Apex Legends Swimming Buddy Pathfinder skin is a rather awesome take on everyone’s favorite robot pal.

In this skin, Pathfinder is taking us to the beach (or pool) and is going to be our lifeguard as he is wearing a snazzy red and blue armor set with blue legs and a red chest portion. Underneath his chestpiece some lifeguard packages further make this unique skin awesome.

Overall, this is a cool skin for Pathfinder that is perfect for the summertime season. As such, we wouldn’t be surprised if the collectors and Pathfinder fans out there would want to grab this skin for yourself. Here’s how you can do so once the skin drops this month.

How to Get the Free Twitch Skin

Like the other free Twitch skins for Apex Legends, the Apex Legends Swimming Buddy Pathfinder skin is free through Twitch Prime. You will need an active subscription to that service to unlock this skin and start using it in online battle royale matches.

So, if you’ve been around this rodeo a couple of times before, you will likely already know what you need to do to unlock this new Pathfinder skin. Otherwise, what you need to do is make sure that you have an active Twitch Prime account.

So long as you do have one of those, your best bet is to log in and find this Twitch Prime skin at this link. That is where you can find all of the free Twitch Prime loot given out to players for the month, including other games besides just Apex Legends.

How to Get Twitch Prime for Free

But if you don’t have Twitch Prime, there are a few things you can do to make up for this fact and get the skin anyway. The first one is to see if there is anyone you know, like a family member or friend who has a Twitch Prime account that you can use for this skin.

If that isn’t the case, then it is time to do some work on your own. Twitch Prime can connect to Amazon Prime if you have an Amazon account since Amazon owns Twitch. Many people have active Amazon Prime accounts, so this part might apply to you.

In this case, all you need to do is link your Amazon and Twitch Prime accounts together. To do so, make sure that you have created both of these and head to your Twitch account settings to find out how to log into your active Amazon Prime service and connect the two.

Doing that will give you free Twitch Prime automatically. This comes with all of the perks that other Twitch Prime users have like the free loot each month, including this skin and the ability to gift one free sub to your favorite Twitch streamers and personalities once per month.

Overall, it is a great deal as Amazon Prime can pay for itself and you’re getting Twitch Prime for free. So, if you share an Amazon account with someone like a family member or friend, you can connect it to a Twitch Prime account if they are not going ever to use this incentive.

Now, if you don’t have an Amazon account or someone’s that you can use, your best bet is to get a free trial. If you haven’t used up your free trial for Amazon Prime yet, that is an easy way, or you can get a separate free trial for Twitch Prime directly.

Also, if you are a student currently with a student email available to you, you can get a free round of Amazon Prime for a good while that will let you get this skin in the process as well. These are excellent ways of getting this skin actually for totally free without having to spend money on any subscription at all.

However, we recommend that you pay attention to the dates when your free trial ends no matter which route you take so you can cancel it in time to avoid any charges unless. Of course, you do want to keep the service around; in which case, feel free to keep it around for the next free skin offered.

Speaking of which, this particular Apex Legends free skin will only stick around for a limited time, so be sure to grab it as soon as possible. It could stick around for a least a month or so until the next skin, but the dates aren’t confirmed just yet, so we recommend grabbing it now while it is fresh and still around for unlocking.
