Legends tokens are one of the most difficult currencies to acquire in Apex Legends. Unfortunately, you can’t use your own cash to purchase them, so knowing how you can unlock them is vital. Thankfully, we’ve got everything you need to get your hands on these pesky little tokens
What are Legend Tokens in Apex Legends?
Legend Tokens can be used to purchase new Legends and exclusive recolors, without the need to spend real cash.
Respawn Entertainment hasn’t exactly made it easy for fans to distinguish between all the different currencies the game possesses.
Apex Legends currently has four main currencies in the game:
- Apex Coins
- Legend Tokens
- Crafting Metals
- Heirloom Shards
While Apex Coins act as the main currency that players can obtain through the Battle Pass and actually spending some real cash, Crafting Metals, Heirloom Shards, and Legend Tokens are slightly different.
Crafting Metals are earned through the Battle Pass and can also be obtained through Apex Packs. Heirloom Shards are also a rare drop in Apex Packs.
Legend Tokens work slightly differently from these other currencies.
How to get Legend Tokens
Legend Tokens can be acquired by simply leveling up in Apex Legends. Once players achieve level 4 they will gain 600 Legend Tokens for every level up.
To unlock a new Legend it will cost 12,000 Legend Tokens, meaning players will have to reach at least level 20 before they will have enough to purchase a new Legend, so pick one wisely. Even if you hit the ceiling in terms of the game’s level cap, you can still continue to earn more tokens via experience points in matches.
Here are the best ways that you can level up fast in Apex Legends:
- Kill an enemy to earn 50 XP points
- Survive for longer in games, the higher you finish, the more XP you get
- Party up as you can earn a bonus 5% XP for every friend you play with
