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

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!
