While it might seem like a straightforward answer on how much money you'll need to buy everything in Apex Legends, it is not. Because of the randomized pack system, free packs you get may have rarer items and mean less money spent in the long run. In 2019, Gaming Curios on YouTube set out to try and answer this question. In the end, they found that unlocking all items in Apex Legends cost them $1000. Now, this video is outdated and each player will have different odds. This means that the number will vary between players, but it does help give us a general idea.

How much you get for free in Apex Legends is really a matter of how much you play and the opportunities in Apex Legends that you take advantage of. There have been, and will likely continue to be, lots of events that give free items. Not all players have been playing for as long or play as often. For this reason, it is impossible to say exactly how many items total you can get for free in Apex Legends.

When you combine all possible opportunities and levels achieved, we gain a theoretical idea of what you can get free of charge while playing Apex Legends. If you are a player who has done the following, you'll have gotten the max number of free packs:

  • Maxed out on levels
  • Used Battle Pass for all seasons
  • Played all seasons of Apex Legends
  • Participated in every free promotion

According to a YouTube video by TheThak, the amount of packs someone could have received for free is over 500. Specifically, TheThak claims in his video that the maximum number of Apex Legends packs a player who fits the above criteria could hypothetically receive is 515 packs. The number of players who have reached this is likely low, as not many have played as long or have done all the events in the game.
