Looking to pick up the Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack without having a Twitch Prime subscription? Try this devious little trick.

Apex Legends recently became host to a special Twitch Prime pack which offers a Pathfinder outfit and five Apex Packs, and it looks like players can get it for free. Though the giveaway is intended to be included as part of the perks package for a Twitch Prime subscription, one player has found a way to unlock the Twitch Prime Apex Legends pack without a subscription. Here's how to pick up the Twitch Prime Apex Legends pack entirely for free without having an active Twitch Prime subscription.

How to get free Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack without subscription

The procedure for acquiring the Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack without an active subscription requires players to edit the game's launch options on PC. Sorry, console players, this trick won't work for you. First discovered by Twitter user Adam_THR (and reported by Polygon), users can copy a specific string into the game executable's launch options to unlock the exclusive Pathfinder skin and Apex Packs automatically.

To unlock the Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack for free, head into origins and open the Apex Legends settings. Look for advanced launch options, then type the following phrase at the end of the string: "+twitch_prime_linked 1"

Doing so will tell the game that Twitch Prime has been linked to the user's Origin account, and will unlock all of the goodies offered within the Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack without having to buy a subscription. Users who want the free goodies should act fast, as EA or Respawn Entertainment are certainly going to patch out this unintended functionality as soon as possible.

The process to unlock the Twitch Prime Apex Legends Pack for free on PC is remarkably simple, but we don't expect the launch option modifier trick to work for very long. Fortunately, users can pick up the Apex Legends Twitch Prime pack legitimately just as easily, and it can be earned simply by linking an active Amazon Prime subscription to Twitch to get Twitch Prime for free.
