It’s been two incredible years since we launched Apex Legends, and this year, we’re celebrating!
Starting February 9th and until February 23rd, we’re celebrating with a special Anniversary Collection Event. Jump in for free rewards, a special Collection Event featuring the return of fan-favorite looks, and the return of Locked and Loaded as a playlist Takeover.
Read on more below for details.
As a thank you for dropping with us, we’re loading up the Reward Track with 22 earnable items, including two Event Packs and ten Apex Packs.
Plus, during the event, you’ll receive five awards (three matching stat trackers for Bangalore, an Apex Pack, and an event badge) just for logging in for the first time.
Locked and Loaded Takeover
Another Takeover is hitting the normal Play Apex playlist. In “Locked and Loaded”, hit the ground with a full loadout of level 1 gear. You’ll have a Mozambique, White Shotgun Bolt, HCOG Classic Scope, White Evo Shield, White Helmet, White Backpack, White Knockdown Shield, two Syringes, two Shield Cells, and one stack of shotgun ammo. What more could you possibly need, right?
All Common/White level attachments and equipment will also be removed from the loot pool (outside of Common scopes) during the takeover. Drop in and knock ’em out!
To continue the celebration, we’re giving you some fun challenges to go after with new badges to earn.
- Get the “Daily Discovery” Nessie Badge by completing 75 Daily Challenges
- “Respect your elders” and earn the Mozambique Badge by dealing 102,816 Damage (get the reference?)
- Earn “Time to Win and Stay Alive” with 8 different Legends to get the Smolfinder Badge
Also, snag the “Mozambique Here” Weapon Charm by dealing 3,333 Damage with everyone’s favorite weapon to ping, the Mozambique. The Locked and Loaded takeover may help with this one.
Anniversary Collection Event
We’re bringing back 24 fan-favorite items and giving them a fresh look with crimson red and gold touches. If you’ve missed out on a skin you really wanted in the past, now’s the time to snag it, but with a new look that lets others know you were here in the early days of Apex Legends.
Normally, unlocking all the items in a Collection Event unlocks a specific heirloom. But you only turn two once, so we’re mixing it up a little bit. Unlocking all items in the Collection Event will earn you 150 heirloom shards, so you can unlock any heirloom you want. And to make it a little bit easier to get there, for this one time only, the crafting cost for all items in the Collection Event has been reduced by 50%.
For collectors looking to get the most bang for your buck, check out our Anniversary event bundles featuring the new content.
One last minor detail: If you earn Event Packs from the Reward Track after you’ve already unlocked everything in the Collection Event, those packs are still good. They’ll simply grant you 700 Apex Coins (their purchase cost).
That’s all for now. But before we go, we want to say, again, thank you. The last two years has been incredible, and it’s all thanks to the community that has formed around this game. Here’s to two years, and to the future—the best is yet to come!
See you in the Arena.
