Apex Legends’ Decrypt The Passcode is now available and it is very similar to the interactive quest leading up to Horizon’s release. If you have ran into random keycards when opening care packages, they are actually a part of the Apex Legends Decrypt The Passcode Event. Here is a quick guide on how to activate the Decrypt The Passcode event in Apex Legends which gives us a sneak peek into what to expect from the upcoming 3v3 arena mode next month. Completing the quest is supposed to give you a badge according to datamined information but you will need to wait until all of the quest steps are available.
