Apex Legends Season 5: Broken Ghost Season Quest - How To Unlock And Week 2 Hunt Tips

Ben Sledge
27 May 2020

Apex Legends Season 5 has introduced an ongoing story in the form of Season Quests. We explain how to unlock Quests, play games, and offer tips on each weekly Hunt.

Season Quests are the latest addition to Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune's Favor. The quests represent an ongoing story through the Season, with new character Loba at the core.

She's after something called the Broken Ghost, but who or what that is remains shrouded in mystery - only our Hunts into King's Canyon will reveal more.

If you're still a little confused, that's fine. There's a lot of new information to take in, and that's why we're here! Without further ado, here's everything you need to know about the Season Quest, as well as tips and tricks for Week 2's Hunt.

How To Unlock The Broken Ghost Season Quest

Apex Legends Season 5 Broken Ghost Season Quest

Everyone who downloads Apex Legends will be able to take part in the Broken Ghost Season Quest.

However, you'll need to find Treasure Packs in order to play the weekly Hunts, advance the story, and earn rewards. You can find one Treasure Pack per day in loot bins around King's Canyon. We assume they'll be found in World's Edge once that returns, too.

Each Treasure Pack grants you a reward, be it Crafting Materials or a Weapon Charm. Every fifth Treasure Pack allows you to play a Hunt, which will unlock each week.

About Hunts

Apex Legends Season 5 Broken Ghost Season Quest

Hunts take place every Tuesday if you've unlocked them. You can play if you have found enough (five) Treasure Packs in your Apex Legends matches.

You can always buy any Treasure Packs (up to yesterday's amount) that you missed for 50 Apex Coins each. You can also join a friend's Hunt if you haven't unlocked it, but you won't receive any rewards.

Hunts will involve a story mission into King's Canyon at night to collect one of nine pieces of an artifact that Loba is trying to piece together. There may also be other rewards.

Watch out for Prowlers when hunting, and undoubtedly other nasty enemies or puzzles. You can also replay the Hunts as often as you like after you've unlocked them.

What Are The Hunt Rewards?

Hunt Rewards will likely be weapon skins and charms, as well as the piece of Loba's coveted artifact. We'll update this as time goes on and we learn more.

From here on out: there may be minor spoilers. We're offering tips and tricks for each Hunt, but this may give away plot points. You have been warned.

Prologue

The Prologue is a cutscene available to watch immediately in Season 5. Loba is detailing her plans to all the other Legends - except Revenant that is.

We recommend you see for yourself, but her mission involves entering a parallel dimension to retrieve artifact pieces using a mini-Harvester. Wild, right?

She makes sure every Legend swears not to tell her nemesis Revenant, but the ending shows every Legend has notified the killer robot of Loba's plan. We'll see where that leads.

Hunt One: The First Piece

Apex Legends Broken Ghost Hunt 1

Hunt One begins on Tuesday, May 19. The servers went down as it went live, which is annoying but shows how invested players are.

Without giving too much away, you can play as any character except Loba or Revenant. Head into Artillery At Night and fight off the Prowlers to grab the first piece of Loba's Artifact.

We recommend opening every supply bin you come across, as you can quickly grab the Hammerpoint Rounds which shred Prowlers. We also found a Mastiff in the first supply bin inside a hangar, which is a huge upgrade from the Mozambique.

If you're playing alone you'll get two respawns, making the challenge quite easy. However, keep an eye on the timer, as we made it back to the extraction point at - literally - the final second.

Completing the mission unlocks a Sapphire weapon charm, the first piece of the artefact, and the next meeting in Mirage's bar. This story is called The Cranky Clown, and you'll see what that means.

We won't go into details, but it's mostly about shady deals with Hammond Robotics and Octane's date night.

Hunt Two: A Legend Falls

Apex Legends Broken Ghost Hunt 2 A Legend Falls

Hunt Two begins with an incredibly ominous title. We picked Loba to do this mission, as she was available, but we're starting to get worried that whichever Legend we pick might cop it. Surely it won't be the newest one? But remember what happened to Forge... RIP.

This Hunt begins at The Cage, where you must utilise your kitted-out Triple Take to snipe some Prowlers before pushing them towards Hydro Dam.

Once inside, pick up a replacement to your P2020 - there are lots of options available, from Shotguns to Gold Assault Rifles. We recommend going for the latter.

We think Loba is actually a useful Legend for this mission, as you can see where the weapons you want are hidden. Plus, she or Wraith can get out of tricky situations when Prowlers gang up on you, so either of them would be ideal.

We're not going to give too much away, but you need to complete a few simple tasks to unlock the blast doors, where you can set down your mini-Harvester and get the next Artifact - the Occipital Hub.

Make your way through a lot of Prowlers (we recommend just legging it past/through them) to the dropship before the time runs out. Complete this and you get your hands on the Artifact, a Ruby weapon charm, and the next part of the story.

Then, you can continue the story and see how Octane's date goes...
