Devs from Respawn have previously confirmed that players are guaranteed to get at least one Heirloom within 500 Apex packs, but there is no pack counter built in the game.
Apex Legends was released in February 2019 as a free-to-play hero-shooter battle royale game. Because of its unique battle royale gameplay style, the game drew players from various games and genres and became one of the most popular video games of all time in a few months.
The game is entertaining to play, with numerous game modes for players to enjoy. Also, there are many game modes, such as Battle Royale, Arenas, and Control. Additionally, game developers are always adding new game kinds and limited-time modes to keep players involved and entertained.
On top of that, Apex Legends is a free-to-play game, which means that anybody with a computer that meets the minimum system requirements may play it. If players do not choose to spend any money, they are not required to do so.
There are tons of rare legend skins, weapon skins, gun charms, and other banner items attractive to the mass player base and people enjoy collecting them.
One such arguably the rarest item in Apex Legend is Heirloom. Heirlooms are special melee items for specific legends in the game that can be unlocked through opening packs. If players get lucky enough, they can get an Heirloom for their favorite legend without spending any money.
Respawn has clarified that players will get at least one Heirloom between 1 to 500 Apex packs. However, the number is randomly generated, and there is no way of knowing when a player might open an Heirloom.
Fans request an in-game Apex pack counter
Although the players are aware that they would earn an heirloom for every 500 packs opened, there is no way to track how many packs they have unlocked in their lifetime.
There are various third-party websites where you may manually enter the numbers to see how many packs you’ve opened. However, keeping track of each pack is difficult, and the outcome is nearly always wrong. As a result, many players find it frustrating.
For a long time, Apex Legends players have been asking Respawn to put an option where players will be able to figure out the actual number of packs opened so they can see the progression for Heirlooms.
As of season 12 of Apex Legends, developers from Respawn have not addressed the issue. It is unknown whether they’ll ever add a pack counter in the future.
