Respawn is giving Apex Legends fans plenty to celebrate in this year’s anniversary event.

The upcoming Anniversary Collection Event will celebrate two years of Apex fun by offering 150 heirloom shards to players who unlock all the event items, according to today's blog post. And to further reward dedicated players, Respawn is offering a little discount on the event items' crafting cost.

"Unlocking all items in the Collection Event will earn you 150 heirloom shards, so you can unlock any heirloom you want," the blog post reads. "And to make it a little bit easier to get there, for this one time only, the crafting cost for all items in the Collection Event has been reduced by 50%."

Typically, collection events offer a legend-specific heirloom to players who unlock all the cosmetics. Since there's no such thing for this event, Respawn is letting the players choose. And to expedite the process, crafting items will be considerably cheaper.

The event's generous reward track will also include 22 earnable items, including two Event Packs and 10 Apex Packs. You'll also receive five free rewards just for logging in for the event, such as stat trackers for Bangalore, an Apex Pack, and an event badge.

Apex's Anniversary Collection Event will run from Feb. 9 to 23, bringing back Locked and Loaded as a playlist takeover.
