Getting Legend Tokens in Apex Legends is the cheapest way to unlock both characters and cosmetics in the free-to-play battle royale shooter. Because the currency is free to earn, it requires significant grinding to stack up enough to unlock the most desirable items in the game.
How to Get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends
Players earn Legend Tokens simply by playing matches of Apex Legends. They accrue more quickly based on in-game performance, with more successful games — high kill counts, higher placements — leading to more Legend Tokens.
Players also receive 600 bonus Legend Tokens whenever they reach a new level.
Legend Tokens can be spent on store-exclusive cosmetics and cosmetic variants. They can also be used to unlock playable characters. Each Legend costs 12,000 Legend Tokens to unlock, requiring roughly 20 level-gain bonuses for player to afford one.
Apex Legends is in the midst of its Grand Soirée event, introducing a plethora of new game modes and cosmetics. Although some of those items can only be earned through completing an event progress bar, many can be purchased using Legend Tokens.
