What is the God Ape Quest?

The God Ape Quest (GAQ) is the newest version of our gamified tokenomics ecosystem, offering a unique NFT experience to our community.

The GAQ is a campaign in which B.A.P. holders will use their assets to complete tasks on the road to minting a God or Goddess Ape. It consists of six phases, each lasting three weeks (with community unlocks available to expedite each phase).

A variety of tactics will be required to navigate the entire campaign including but not limited to:

  • Formulas
  • Achievements
  • METH Spending
  • Loot Box Opening
  • Trait Burning
  • Asset Accumulation


Why Should I Participate?

The GAQ is the second iteration of our gamified tokenomics ecosystem.

The first took place over the Summer and Fall of 2022, in which the community used assets their BAP NFTs accumulated or produced to complete a campaign to mint God Bulls.

This was an incredibly successful campaign that not only led to the creation of 500 God Bulls (current floor 2+ETH; ATH 10ETH) but also produced our Teen and Utility collections.

Participation led to the creation of a large variety of assets for our community to accumulate, sell, and trade. 


How to Get Started:

Ready to jump in and join the fun? Great! Read our guide or watch the walkthrough with Tankman here.

The game begins on the God Ape Quest home page. This page hosts our Quest Map & Community Unlock gauge and will be expanded in the future to include some additional data and info as needed. 

  1. Click link to begin your quest. You will be greeted with an intro video providing some context to the quest and B.A.P. Lore
  2. You’ll be asked to decide if you want to join Team Ava or Team Vyl. This decision will impact which path you will follow through the quest. Both paths have the same essential requirements and will have equal levels of difficulty. 
  3. After choosing your team, begin God Ape Quest!
  4. The phase requirements (seen on the Quest Map) will take place on the God Ape Quest tab on the Formulas page 


Formulas Explained

Formulas are the central activity throughout the GAQ in which multiple ingredients are combined to create a new asset.

Every formula will require at least 1 forge block.

Ingredients will include additional Traits as well as $METH.

For example: 


God Ape Quest Formulas

To create GAQ-specific Formulas: 

Select the Forged Trait you would like to create. The full formula with required ingredients will appear on the right side of the screen.

Click “Select Trait” to reveal the traits you have in your wallet that match the ingredient requirements (listed at the bottom, ie. Rarity: OG Mint or Forged Trait- see Terminology for definitions of these traits)

To complete the formula you will need all required ingredients, including the METH and Forge Blocks necessary. Visit the Formulas Blog for more detail. 

If you haven't created a Forge Block yet, click the Create Forge Block link.

Visit Forge Block Blog for more detail. 

Phase 1 includes 2 Formulas. The Forged Traits from these Formulas must be completed in order to complete the phase and advance to Phase 2.

  1. METH Harvesting
  2. Harvest Champion
  3. Ape Trait of the Day
  4. Sacrificer’s Secret Trials (Now Closed)
