The Apex Legends Neon Network Collection Event features all-new ways to earn rewards throughout the event. In previous Collection Events, players earned points to complete the free reward track and completed objectives in order to unlock Collection Badges. In Neon Network, the reward system is part of the new Node Tracker Takeover, which tasks players with finding Computer Nodes during non-ranked Battle Royale games. The Neon Network Event still features Badges to earn, and here is how to unlock them.
How to get all Badges in the Neon Network Collection Event in Apex Legends
To unlock Neon Network Collection Badges, players must collect Computer Nodes, which can be found during matches through the Node Tracker Takeover mode. There are four tiers to complete, which will unlock Badges and the Neon Network story progression. Here are the tiers for unlocking each badge and each piece of the story:
- 5,000 Computer Nodes
- 10,000 Computer Nodes
- 20,000 Computer Nodes
- 30,000 Computer Nodes
How to play the Node Tracker Takeover mode in Apex Legends
The Node Tracker Takeover is part of any non-ranked Battle Royale match during the Neon Network Collection Event. Simply jump into a public match and start looking for those Node locations using the special Node Tracker item. Each Node you find will bring you closer to unlocking the Collection Badges and uncovering the Neon Network story.
