Decrypt the Passcode is a minor event for Season 8.svg Season 8 of Apex Legends that runs from April 16th, 2021 to May 4th, 2021.

The Invitation[edit | edit source]

The first step will be to go to a neutral Care Package and find a keycard. Once you open the Care Package, the keycard will drop on the ground and will be retrievable. You only need to collect one keycard. It can also be retrieved via Loba's Black Market Boutique.png Black Market Boutique. Once the keycard is collected, you will need to activate it by clicking it in the lobby. By doing so, you will hear a voice line from an unknown person:

If fame and fortune is all you seek, Legend, your path ends here. But a new challenge awaits those who wish to prove their worth in the Arena.

Challenges[edit | edit source]

After the voice line is finished, you will unlock the Decrypt the Passcode challenges. You will then go search the maps for passcode CosmeticIcon Holo-Sprays.png Holo-Sprays scattered around the map.

Teaser/Rewards[edit | edit source]

After all of these challenges are complete, you will then need to go to the Firing Range and interact with the platform in the center. Once you do so, a dropship will enter the Firing Range and take you to a secret location. Entering the area will take you inside a cave with an elevator. While on the elevator, you will hear various sounds of gunshots and voices from Ash. When you get to the top, you will enter an arena with a large hologram in the center. It is a logo similar to the passcode holo-sprays. Soon after, that hologram will change to Ash’s head.

Once you enter the arena, she will say:

Do you think you have what it takes to impress me, Legend? You'll find out soon. The Arena awaits.
Do you think you have what it takes to impress me, [glitch] dearie? You'll find out soon. The Arena awaits.
— If the player is Horizon.

After everything is finished, you will go back to the lobby and you will be rewarded the Impress Me CosmeticIcon Badges.png Badge.
