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 dev confirms highly-requested inventory feature coming soon

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
