How to get Crafting Metals in Apex Legends is simple and straightforward. Crafting Metals are a special currency used to unlock cosmetic items in Apex Legends.
Crafting Metals are only available in Apex Packs, which are available for purchase with Apex Coins or awarded when you level up. An Apex Pack will include three cosmetic items, one of which could be Crafting Metals.
How to Get Crafting Metals in Apex Legends
There are four rarities of the Crafting Metal drop. Common will yield 15 Crafting Metals, Rare gives you 30, Epic for 200, and finally Legendary will net you 600.
The cosmetics you can unlock will cost twice the amount of Crafting Metals available in that respective rarity. As such, Common cosmetics will cost 30 Crafting Metals, Rare will cost 60, Epic will cost 400, and Legendary will cost 1200.
Apex Packs will never give duplicates, so if you have obtained all the cosmetics in a certain rarity tier, you will be given the appropriate amount of Crafting Metals instead.
