What Are The Apex Legends Mobile Modes?

There are three main modes in Apex Legends Mobile, plus various limited-time modes.

How to Unlock Legends

You can unlock Legends in two ways:

  2. Select the Legend you want to unlock a Perk with and tap Details.
  3. Tap the icon under Perks to add or change a Perk.

How to Earn Syndicate Packs

Cosmetic Syndicate Packs are randomized in-game containers filled with three cosmetic items or crafting currencies. There are a few different ways you can find these.

Leveling Up Your Account

As you level up your account, you earn free Packs. You’ll start off earning one Pack per level, but as you progress this will change. To claim a level reward, go to Level Rewards on the main menu and tap on the level to claim your Pack.

  • Level 1-50: One Pack per level
  • Level 51-300: One Pack every two levels
  • Level 301-500: One Pack every five levels

You’ll also earn 100 Flux every time you level up.

Purchasing Syndicate Packs

You can buy Syndicate Packs by using Syndicate Gold in the Store.

  1. Go to the Store.
  2. Tap Syndicate Packs.
  3. Choose either one or 10 Packs.
  4. Tap Purchase.

Earning Packs through Battle Pass

Each Season there is a new Battle Pass system. You can unlock free items and Packs every Season through normal play, or you can buy a Premium Pass to earn more exclusive rewards.

Completing Events and Missions

You can earn Packs by going to the Events tab of the game, where you’ll see Missions and Events to complete. After you complete them, tap Claim.

What about Duplicates?

The game recognizes what items you already have, so you can’t get duplicates. Instead, it’ll grant you a certain amount of Flux based on the rarity of the item.

How to Customize Your Legend and Weapons

To Customize Your Legend

  1. Tap the Legends button on the main menu.
  2. Tap on the Legend you want to customize and tap Details.
  3. Tap the content you want to customize on the right-hand side.
  4. Tap the new content you want to use and tap Equip.

To Customize Your Weapons

  1. Tap the Loadout button on the main menu.
  2. Tap on the weapon you want to customize.
  3. Tap Skins.
  4. Tap the new skin you want to use and tap Equip.

You can also tap the Attachment section on the main weapon page of each item to see how different attachments impact your stats.

What’s Different About Apex Legends Mobile?

Apex Legends Mobile has many of the same core features as Apex Legends, but also offers unique Events, Legends, modes, and more.

Here are a few other key differences:

  • The Seasons are separate and follow a different schedule than Apex Legends.
  • You can level up Legends by earning XP for that Legend.
  • Some Legends become available as you level up your account.

Like Apex Legends, each Season will bring updates, Events, and more, so that the mobile experience is always evolving and growing.

Is there Cross-play for Apex Legends Mobile?

There isn’t cross-play or cross-progression between the mobile game and the PC/console game.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
