If you’ve been opening Apex Legends packs forever and still not received Heirloom Shards, you might be wondering how close you are. If you reach 500 packs without receiving any Shards, you’re guaranteed some to protect against bad luck, and you can easily track how many you’ve already opened.
To ensure that you don’t open endless packs and never receive any Heirloom Shards, Respawn added the method to prevent that from happening. This means that a player cannot open more than 500 Apex packs without receiving them (unless you own all Heirloom sets already).
One coder, Mike Zarandona, decided to create a solution for simply checking how many Apex Packs they’ve opened throughout the course of their time playing the game.
Zarandona worked it out and built an application to estimate the amount of opened packs in your account has logged, thus cluing you into how many more you’ll need going forward.
How many Apex Packs have I opened?
The tool lets you input everything from what level you ended up in every season’s Battle Pass to any Daily Treasure packs you might have received for any quests.
Getting started with the application is relatively easy. You’ll need to input basic information such as your Account level, whether or not you’ve linked your Twitch Prime, and so on. Going in any order you want, input your level for every season so far in Apex Legends. Of course, if you skipped a season or two, leave that blank.
Zarandona has scattered tips throughout the site with where to find this info, and suggested: “checking the Season X badge on any Legend.”
As you may or may not know, quests give you a total of 45 Daily Treasure Packs. You can enter how many of those you were able to get during The Broken Ghost, The First Ship, Armageddon, and The Legacy Antigen.
Finally, the last two entries may be a bit tricky for some people: Purchased Packs & Bugs + Misc Packs. For most, both of these are going to be 0 if you haven’t bought any, or if Respawn hasn’t compensated packs to you for an errant bug.
Once you have all of your figures, you can view your Heirloom Progress. This will even have a report for you with the breakdown of all the packs that you’ve collected.
So, there you have it, everything you need to know about viewing your packs in Apex Legends.
