With the APEX HQ app, you can essentially stay connected outside of the game. You first login using the same EA account that you use for Mass Effect: Andromeda on your console. More data will appear as you play multiplayer, but here are a few things that you can do with the APEX HQ app, according to BioWare:
– Here, you’ll get a snapshot of your multiplayer progression so far.
– Each widget on the homepage is customizable – you choose which ones to show or hide, and the order they appear.
– See who you’ve unlocked so far, mark your favorites for later, and set an active character for your next match.
– Adjust your active character’s loadout before jumping in to multiplayer. Here, you can equip, swap and modify weapons so you’ll be ready to play at a moment’s notice.
- Strike Teams
– Send out Strike Teams from in-app in return for in-game rewards for successful missions.
– Recruit and equip new teams for greater chances of success.
– Track your progress as you unlock characters, rewards and inventory items in the Collections section.
– Watch as you rise through the ranks in the global leaderboards, and see how you stack up against your friends.
– See how you’re doing in multiplayer challenges, check out achievements you’ve unlocked so far (and the ones you haven’t), and view your progression towards each bonus stat.
– View details all APEX missions currently available. You can also see which missions you’ve already completed, and when incomplete ones expire.
