You can get some exclusive Apex Legends cosmetic items during the holiday just by relaxing and watching Twitch streams. Here’s how.

Apex Legends is currently one of the most popular battle royale games available on the market. The game features tons of cosmetic items to make everything in-game stand out. You can find unique skins for any Legend and weapon. Moreover, you can also use weapon charms to decorate your guns and customize them even further.

There are also Banner Frames, Skydive Emotes, Sprays, Charms, and other items. Unfortunately, these cosmetic items are not cheap, and you must purchase the majority of them from the in-game store in order to support the game. There are, however, some ways to obtain these cosmetic items for free! Yes, Apex Legends is teaming up with Twitch to provide free items to players during the holiday season.
