Apex Legends’ new event stuffed with more free Apex Packs than usual

Apex Legends' latest Anniversary collection event is finally here and there are a lot more Apex Packs up for grabs via the reward track than there usually is.

The next major Apex Legends title update is upon us and, with it, Respawn Entertainment is celebrating four years of this battle royale shooter with another Anniversary collection event. While this celebration is going to work in the same way as previous collection events, Respawn is being a lot more generous when it comes to Apex Packs in the reward tracker.

Starting on February 14, the Apex Legends Anniversary collection event sees a full set of recolours and community-created cosmetics available in the in-game store and select Event Apex Packs. There have been some minor cosmetic changes introduced to these skins – so, they’re not completely recycled content – but it’s still not quite as fresh as you’d like.

Still, completing the collection event will bag you 150 Heirloom Shards – and a set of slick legend skins. So, if you want to get a headstart on that, you’ll be pleased to know that the Anniversary collection event reward tracker doesn’t just contain five Apex Packs, it contains two Event Apex Packs – something we haven’t seen available in a reward track for quite some time.

As you can see for yourself in the image below, the Apex Legends Anniversary collection event reward track is going to offer up seven Apex Packs alongside 12 community-created cosmetics – including an epic Wattson skin, an epic Fuse skin, a Wingman weapon skin, a CAR SMG weapon skin, and more.

The Apex Legends Anniversary collection event is also going to include a Twitch Drops promo where players can earn an additional four Apex Packs – from February 14 to February 17. So, this could really be a great week for you to flesh out your selection of cosmetics a little more – and enjoy some great Apex, of course.

As the Apex Legends Season 16 release time, and this collection event, nears, it’s worth reading up on everything changing with Apex Legends’ classes right here. Not only this, but you can also read up on why we think Apex Legends’ Season 16 update might actually make the scan meta worse. We know – it sounds impossible, right?
