The wait has been very long, but now Apex Legends Mobile is finally available on iOS and Android globally. Having been built with mobile devices in mind, the battle royale game by Respawn feels and plays somewhat differently from the console and PC games, so even those who feel like they have mastered the original Apex Legends will have something fresh to experience.
Among the features and mechanics that are unique to Apex Legends Mobile are pieces and chips. Here’s how they work and how they can be used to unlock additional content.
How Do Pieces and Chips Work in Apex Legends Mobile?
Unlocking new Legends in Apex Legends Mobile works differently than in the original console and PC games. Instead of having to collect Legend Tokens, Apex Legends Mobile players need to play the game to level up their account or spend Syndicate Gold to unlock new Legends. One of them, however, can only be unlocked by obtaining a certain amount of pieces.
To unlock the Apex Legends Mobile exclusive Legend Fade, players need to get 10 Fade Pieces which can be obtained as rewards in the Prime Time battle pass. You will get more pieces as you simply play the game, so it won’t take too long to get 10 of them.
Chips are also related to the new Legends Fade, but they are not used to unlock the character. Instead, they can be used to unlock story chapters for Fade and purchase different cosmetics. You can get these chips by completing the Unleash Punishment event, and you’d better start playing if you want to unlock more content, as this event will be available only for a limited time.
Apex Legends Mobile is a new battle royale game that is now available on the App Store and Google Play Store globally. While it is limited in terms of content as of now, compared to the console and PC game, Respawn Entertainment is determined to make their game one of the most popular mobile titles ever, so you can expect more content and new Legends coming to the game very, very soon.
