Not only is season 16 coming out today, but Respawn Entertainment is also beginning a celebration in honor of Apex Legends' 4th anniversary. We're talking weeks of festivities and tons of loot. Let's break it down.
4th Anniversary Login Rewards
Apex Legends' 4th Anniversary Celebration Event is starting off strong with some great login rewards. From February 14- February 21, you can permanently unlock Crypto. From February 21- February 28, you can unlock Ash. Two Legends at the cost of free. You can't beat it. Thematic packs are excellent too!
4 Days of Twitch Drops
Tune in to streams during the launch of Revelry and earn Twitch Drops! Unlock new weapon charms, Apex Packs, and some fan-favorite loading screens you may have missed out on.

Starting February 14, 12 exclusive Twitch drops are up for grabs. You have 24 hours each day, beginning at 8 AM PST, to earn the drops for that day. Respawn Entertainment has enabled category-wide Twitch drops.
Watching any streamer streaming Apex Legends that has drops enabled will snag you these precious drops. You'll need to watch at least three hours of Apex Legends action per day to get them. After 1 hour, you'll get a loading screen, and after two, a gun charm. The reward for the third hour is an apex pack.
As always, be sure your EA and Twitch accounts are connected to get these Twitch drops!
2 Weeks of Event Store Cosmetics
Every several days for the next two weeks, there will be an Event Shop with tons of excellent cosmetics and character bundles. Be on the lookout for these special discounts, and make sure to check out this shop every day. You might find something you've wanted for a long time!
Anniversary Collection and Heirloom Shards
If you're an Apex Legends player willing to splish splash some quick cash, 150 heirloom shards are up for grabs.
With the Anniversary Collection Event comes 24 cosmetics:
- Bass Drop Gibraltar legend skin
- Biohazard Octane legend skin
- Biotechnic Ash legend skin

You can obtain these items with Apex Coins, Crafting Metals, or by getting them from Anniversary Collection packs. Players who complete the Anniversary Collection will earn a bonus of 150 Heirloom Shards.
At the very least, I know Bass Drop Gibraltar is a must-buy. Does anyone else look at that skin and think of Combo from Jet Set Radio Future, or is that just me?
Anniversary Event Free Reward Track
The Anniversary Event features a sweet Free Reward Track full of cosmetics created by Apex Legends community members. Everyone likes free. With it being possible to earn a maximum of 1,600 points per day, four days of gameplay is enough to clear out the rewards.
