Apex Legends now has quests for players to complete in order to claim some bonuses and rewards. To progress in these quests, you’ll need daily Treasure Packs, so, here’s where you can find them.

After months of waiting, and then an additional small delay of a week, Apex Legends Season Five: Fortune’s Favor finally launched on May 12. As ever, the new season meant that players could finally play as a new legend –  Loba – while also getting their hands on new cosmetics and seeing some map changes.

Though, aside from all that, the new season has also added a new quest feature. Here, players can follow the story of the ‘Broken Ghost’ and earn some rewards. But, if you want to progress in the quests, you need Treasure Packs.

Where to find Apex Legends Treasure Packs

Now, Respawn hasn’t made anything too complex about getting these packs – you don’t have to rack up a killstreak or defend a certain area of the map to unlock them.

Instead, you just have to open up supply bins and hope that the luck is on your side. If your luck is in, the pack will pop out of the bin and fall right at your feet – it won’t stay inside the bin. Simply hold down your pick-up button to claim it and then finish the match. 

  • Drop into a game of Apex Legends
  • Open supply bins
  • Hold you action/pick-up button on the pack that pops out
  • Finish the game to progress in your quest

Players are limited to one pack per day.

However, you can’t just go running around Kings Canyon racking up multiple Treasure Packs in one game. Players are limited to one pack per day. But once the timer resets each day at 6 PM BST/1 PM EDT/11 AM PDT/7 PM CET, you are free to grab another.

If you’ve already found your daily pack, they can still pop out of supply bins – you just won’t be able to pick them up. 

If you miss out on a daily Treasure Pack you can catch up in order to find all 45 that are in season five. You just have to go to your quests tab and hit the ‘catch up’ option that appears below the rewards wheel. 

Each catch-up pack will cost you 25 Apex Coins, but you will still be able to find a free pack in your matches if you haven’t already found one that day.

What are hunts in Apex Legends?

Once you have five packs, you should then participate in the weekly hunt once it’s available. Completing these will grant you a weapon charm, a piece of the mysterious artifact, unlock new secrets about the Broken Ghost.

Apex Legends hidden message reveals Mirage is related to Titanfall 2 characters

A secret lore drop found on the Mirage Voyage – brought back by Respawn in the lead-up to Season 8 – has revealed a close connection between the Holographic Trickster and two characters from Titanfall 2.

In a surprise move on January 15, Respawn threw the original Apex Legends’ map – Kings Canyon – back into the rotation for the first time in Season 7. This version of Kings Canyon features the Mirage Voyage airship, hovering over the remains of Skulltown.

While pro players and content creators largely criticized Kings Canyon in Season 6 – leading to its absence from the rotation in Season 7 – the announcement was met with support from the community, including praise for bringing the Mirage Voyage to Kings Canyon for the first time.

The airship is not the only new addition in Kings Canyon. A hidden voice message on a phone revealed a connection between the game’s loveable jokester Mirage and two characters from Respawn’s previous franchise: Titanfall 2.

A hidden voice message has revealed that Mirage is the nephew of two Titanfall 2 characters: Davis and Droz.

The message from Evelyn Witt – Mirage’s mother – begins with an imitation of Kuben Blisk (another Titanfall 2 character with ties to Apex Legends), then switches to a more personal tone. Evelyn covers a range of topics, including her on-going struggle with what appears to be dementia.

Halfway through the message, she drops a bombshell when mentioning her brother Droz, and another individual, Davis. Titanfall 2 fans will already be familiar with those characters: both were members of ‘The 6-4’ mercenary group and helped Jack Cooper defeat Titanfall 2’s antagonists, the IMC.

While it appears Evelyn is related to both of the soldiers, some fans are speculating that she is only related to Droz by blood, and Davis is more of a “brother in arms.” Regardless of the exact connection, it seems both Titanfall 2 characters had a close relationship with Evelyn and her son.

Mirage’s mother also says that the two would “always make me laugh, like Elliot.” Fans of Droz and Davis will certainly remember their funny banter during Titanfall 2’s mission ‘The Ark’, and it appears the two mercs passed their sense of humor down to Mirage.

Some Apex Legends players have already gone back and found other connections between the pair and Mirage. In a short clip posted to Reddit by ‘u/R0NiR’, Davis and Droz can be seen taking a selfie during a Titanfall 2 scene, something Mirage fans will be very familiar with seeing.

This is far from the first tangible connection between Apex Legends and Titanfall 2, which share the same in-game universe. Previous hints from Respawn include a Jack Cooper crossover, Bloodhound concept art, and appearances from Titanfall 2 characters like the simulacrum Ash.

Respawn has previously shut down rumors regarding the development of a Titanfall 3, to the disappointment of many fans. Despite no confirmed plans for a new Titanfall installment, the Apex Legends developer continues to tease fans with new tie-ins between the two franchises.
