We’ve put together a simple guide on how to unlock the level badges in Apex Legends.
Due to a recent level cap increase, some Apex Legends players are interested in learning whether or not they’ll be able to earn level badges for the new levels. Players will now be able to advance up to level 500—a 400 level increase from the previous cap of 100. This is, obviously, a large jump, which is likely the cause of player confusion regarding level badges.
Here’s what we know about how to earn all the level badges in Apex Legends.
How to Earn All Level Badges in Apex Legends
Fortunately, it isn’t difficult to earn level badges in Apex Legends. All players need to do is level up their accounts.
The original breakdown is as follows:
- Level 1-19: Default
- Level 20-39: Bronze
- Level 40-59: Silver
- Level 60-79: Gold
- Level 80-99: Platinum
With the level increase, “players will now earn a new badge every 10 levels from 110 - 500.” There are breaks every 100 levels, for example:
- Level 101–200: Amethyst
- Level 201–300: Emerald
- Level 301–400: Ruby
- Level 401–500: Sapphire
How to Level-up in Apex Legends
The quickest way to level up in Apex Legends is by simply winning games. Obviously, this is easier said than done—especially for new players—but each winning game will net players 500 XP. Performing well and finishing within the top percentile also earns XP, just not as much.
Players can also earn experience by surviving for long periods in a match, reviving other players, and making eliminations. Dethroning powerful players can provide an extra boost as can playing with friends.
