How to open Blue and Red Supply Bins in Apex Legends

Get plenty of Smart Loot, Survival items, and healing items.

Gathering loot is a key part of Apex Legends, and while a lot of loot is on the ground, a lot of it is also in Supply Bins. Standard Supply Bins are orange and have no special qualities. However, there are also two other kinds of Supply Bins: Red and Blue. Red bins contain Smart Loot, and blue bins contain a higher chance of healing items. That said, not every Legend can open these bins. Let’s take a look at how to open specialty Supply Bins in Apex Legends.
