Have you bought the Apex Legends battle pass but dislike the loot boxes? Here’s a crafty solution for you: quite literally, as players have figured out a way to swap their battle pass loot boxes for generous amounts of crafting metals.
Shortly after the battle pass went live, Belgian players started reporting their battle pass contains no Apex Packs – the game’s loot boxes – and are instead being rewarded with crafting metals. The reason for this is because last year Belgium banned all paid loot boxes; classing them as gambling and eventually forcing EA to stop selling FIFA Points after a criminal investigation was opened against the company.
The current Apex Legends battle pass gives Belgian players a pretty fair deal: crafting metals can be used to create skins of your choice, making it a handy way to immediately get what you want rather than continually gamble until you strike gold. The additional
earnings from the loot box replacements total 1350, which is enough to craft a legendary skin (1200).
