How to get Fade Chips in Apex Legends Mobile
The in-game instructions for how to get Fade Chips in Apex Legends Mobile are little confusing, telling players to 'play this mode' or 'play Match Mode', with no link to a specific match type.
What is Match Mode? It seems to be any mode where you're matched with other players online. So don't go looking for Fade Chips in the tutorial level or free practice. If it helps, we found our two Fade Chips in the Battle Royale mode.
To find Fade Chips while playing in a matched mode, you need to search Supply Bins. These are the long, large canisters containing loot.
If you have auto-pickup toggled, you will automatically collect a Fade Chip if it's inside the Supply Bin you opened. If not, you need to manually search for it amongst the loot.
A little annoyingly, while you can find multiple Fade Chips while playing, you can only pick up one Fade Chip a day. The event lasts for 12 days, and you need to collect 12 Fade Chips to unlock all the rewards, so you will have to play every day if you want to unlock all of Fade's Legend story.
If you just want the Unwavering Focus skin, you only need to collect 11 Fade Chips.
