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.

How do you earn Legend Tokens?

Apex Legends' currencies

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.

In order to unlock a new Legend, players will need 12,000 Legend Tokens if they do not wish to spend money on Apex Coins.

What level do you need to reach for 12,000 Legend Tokens?

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.

Apex Legends Season 14 introduced a new Level Cap, meaning that players will have plenty of levels to get through in order to receive Legend Tokens and rewards, especially as Legend Tokens can continue to be earned even after reaching the max level.

Fastest way to get Legend Tokens

As Legend Tokens are gained by leveling up, players will need to gain as much XP as possible to earn them fast. Here are the best ways that you can level up and therefore gain Legend Tokens 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
  • If you can, get a full squad together and you can earn an extra 10% XP every round
  • Complete challenges to earn big one-off sums of XP
  • The Battle Pass offers XP rewards

So, there you have it, that’s how you can get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends. For more, check out our article on how to track your Heirloom progress.
