Supply Bins in Apex Legends are hit and miss with the random items they hold, but Season 4 could finally implement a way to solve the problem of lackluster loot crates.
Since the launch of Respawn’s battle royale, players would be left baffled during their games after opening one of the many loot spawns just to find four straight Level 1 Body Shields or the like.
While players respect the heavy RNG factors that go into games like Apex, sometimes prioritizing Supply Bins can hurt more than help people in the game for the wide range of items they can hold.
That may be why a lot of fans are relieved to see that Respawn could be moving forward with plans for an upgraded Supply Bin – a concept many in the community have been hoping for.
In the Ranked Series 3 page under the Season 4 category on EA’s Apex Legends site there’s a screenshot of World’s Edge in which eagle-eyed players found a strange new element next to a regular box.
The loot crates that players are already accustomed to are marked by a white lid and a red back.
But there seems to be a different one with a blue lid also in that picture, something not seen in the game so far.
While some have attributed the different hue to a rendering issue, it’s not a stretch to believe Respawn could be teasing a new sort of loot crate since a regular one is sitting right next to it.
More players have caught on to the screenshot and believe that if they really are on the way, it would be a great opportunity for the devs to test out crates that exclusively hold Tier 2 loot or above.
Though it is interesting that the screenshot is in the Ranked Series 3 page of the site, which could mean that it’s a game element only for the Ranked playlist in the game.
In either case, this would be a strong step forward to solving the issues surrounding Supply Bins’ loot in Apex Legends and would add another layer of strategy for the looting stage of a match.
