Apex Legends is officially two years old this month after launching in February 2019. From 9 February to 23 February 2021, Respawn Entertainment is celebrating the anniversary with a special Anniversary Collection Event.
Players can jump in for free rewards, a special Collection Event featuring the return of fan-favourite looks, and the return of Locked and Loaded as a playlist Takeover.
As part of the Anniversary Collection Event, Apex Legends is loading up the Reward Track with 22 earnable items, including two Event Packs and ten Apex Packs.
Players will also 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.
All Common/White level attachments and equipment will also be removed from the loot pool (outside of Common scopes) during the takeover.
Players can also look forward to earning new badges.
- Get the “Daily Discovery” Nessie Badge by completing 75 Daily Challenges.
- “Respect your elders” and earn the Mozambique Badge by dealing 102,816 Damage.
- Earn “Time to Win and Stay Alive” with 8 different Legends to get the Smolfinder Badge.
Also, players can snag the “Mozambique Here” Weapon Charm by dealing 3,333 Damage with everyone’s favourite weapon to ping, Mozambique. The Locked and Loaded takeover may help with this one.
Anniversary Collection Event
Apex Legends is bringing back 24 fan-favourite items and giving them a fresh look with crimson red and gold touches. 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 percent.

If players earn Event Packs from the Reward Track after they’ve already unlocked everything in the Collection Event, those packs are still good. They’ll simply grant 700 Apex Coins instead (their purchase cost).
