Opening Apex Legends packs doesn’t mean that you’ll always get Heirloom Shards, and so you might be wondering just how close you are to getting them. If you reach 500 packs without receiving any Shards, you’re guaranteed some to protect against bad luck, and now there’s a way to easily track and find how many apex packs 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).
Zarandona worked out this method 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 before you’ll get Heirloom Shards.
Getting started with the tracker to find out how many Apex packs you’ve opened is easy. First, 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, and leave any seasons that you’ve skipped blank.
If you’re unsure of what your Account level is in Apex, it’ll be displayed above your head up until level 100 in the Lobby, but you can also track it along with other stats here.
The calculator 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.
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 tracking how many packs you’ve opened in Apex Legends to help you get that next Heirloom.
