During the event, you can earn up to 1,600 points a day and the daily challenges refresh every 24 hours. There's a lot of opportunities to earn points towards these free rewards, but they're only available for the duration of the event.


Genesis Event Duration

Speaking of, when does the Genesis Collection Event even start? How long does it last?!

Apex Legends' newest Collection Event is due to start on June 29th. We don't have a specific time yet, but we're expecting things to go live in-game around 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST, if not an hour or so later.

Most Apex Legends events run for a couple of weeks and the Genesis Collection Event isn't any different. You'll have until July 13th to unlock everything before it returns to "the vault".
