Apex Legends Mobile‘s latest exclusive limited-time mode, Hack, requires wits, planning, and preparedness. But it doesn’t hurt to add a little flair to your strategy, so Respawn’s pocket-sized version of its hit first-person shooter has launched the Network Hacker Event, which rewards players with free loot for completing matches and other event challenges in the new LTM.
Hack is essentially the Apex Legends Mobile version of Call of Duty’s Search and Destroy mode and Counter-Strike’s Bomb Defuse mode. The mode also shares many similarities with Titanfall 2’s Live Fire mode, and Apex Mobile recently held an LTE of the same name. Hack Mode is named after a drone belonging to Crypto, who is rumored to be the next legend to migrate to mobile from the console/PC version of the game. But just like the drone after which it is named, this event isn’t going to stick around for long. Keep reading for a guide to all the challenges and rewards the Network Hacker Event has to offer.
Upon logging in, you’ll be met with a splash screen advertising the event. Select “Go!” to be taken to the event hub. You can also navigate to it manually by selecting the “Season Event” banner on the right side of the main lobby screen. Select the “Limited-Time” tab at the top of the screen, then select the “Network Hacker” tab from the vertical list on the right side of the screen.
Challenges and Challenge Points
Once you’ve arrived at the event hub, you’ll see a list of challenges on the right side of the screen. Each challenge rewards the player with a specific amount of Challenge Points upon completion. The event challenges and the amount of Challenge Points obtained for completing them are as follows:

*Seasonal Currency can be used to redeem free season-exclusive cosmetics from the Distortion Store, which can be located at the top of the event hub next to the “Limited-Time” tab. The currency will expire alongside the Distortion Battle Pass.
The Epic-tier Fog Wave Volt SMG weapon skin is the final reward for completing the Network Hacker Event.
