The addition of MRVNs to Apex Legends has been an exciting change for many. The quirky and charming one armed robots now adorn the map and hand out loot to willing players on demand. However, players willing to engage in a little cruelty can nab themselves some easy gold tier loot.
Part of the Fight Night event was the introduction of new MRVNs to the map, Pathfinder is no longer the only one of his kind on the map. After running into a few of them, players may notice that while Pathfinder has both arms, his kin around the map do not. Running up to the MRVNs and selecting them will reward players with some loot depending on their chest display. The colors correspond to the tier of loot, up to gold legendary tier loot.
How to Guarantee Legendary Loot in Apex Legends Using MRVN's Arm
Finding a MRVN willing to give out the rarest loot is a tall order, usually players will find something worse, but it’s always worth it to get free loot when it is available. There is, however, a way to guarantee gold tier loot provided there are two MRVNs available.
After getting loot from a MRVN (it doesn’t matter what tier it is) melee or shoot the MRVN. This may seem cruel, but in the pursuit of success sometimes cruelty is necessary. Killing a MRVN will sometimes drop an arm, pick it up. Recall that MRVNs only have one arm, giving this dropped arm to another MRVN will make it happy, changing the loot it drops to gold tier instantly.
Whether or not that gold tier drop is useful for the player will, of course, depend on the weapons they are using. But getting a gold drop will almost always be better than a white one. Even if the drop isn’t what the player was looking for, at least a MRVN was made happy by getting its second arm. Just don’t mention that another one had to die for that to happen.
