What are Legend Tokens in Apex Legends?

Apex Legends’ Legend Tokens are used to purchase new Legends and exclusive recolors.

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 by 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 are earned in a different manner, so here’s how you can get them.
