Apex Legends is Respawn Entertainment’s solution to the Battle Royale genre and features some of the most popular game mechanics and visuals from their popular Titanfall franchise. 

Apex Legends has an in-game currency that is used to unlock characters and cosmetics as with most free-to-play battle royale games. 


In this quick article, we’re going to show you how to get this currency, which is called Legend Tokens in Apex. The methods are completely free and exist in the game already, so you won’t need to do any cheating or hacking. 

Everything You Need to Know about Apex Legends

Apex Legends was released in February of last year by Respawn Entertainment. It is a new competitor on the Battle Royale scene, which is a video game genre that is incredibly popular amongst console, PC, and mobile devices. 

It is free to play, and while some folks are disappointed in Respawn for not releasing Titanfall 3, they are content with Apex Legends, for now, at least. In fact, the game built up a player base of 25 million players within its first week of being online, so Respawn is obviously doing something right. 


In case you’re unfamiliar with what a Battle Royale is, the concept is quite simple to understand. 60 players are dropped onto a battlefield in which they need to find loot, weapons, and ammo, while also battling other gamers. 

There is a ring present around the entire map that is continuously shrinking, forcing players to close in on one another as the game progresses, until there are just a few players left, and one team emerges victorious. 

Apex Legends is set 30 years after the events of Titanfall 2 and takes place in an area known as the Outlands, where robots and humans alike are forced to battle in the Apex Games. 20 squads of three players fight in a battle to survive.

Legend Tokens and Apex Coins - What are They?

Legend tokens are a kind of currency used to unlock new Legends when they become available or to purchase certain cosmetic items in the Rotating Shop, which is similar to Fortnite’s storefront. Each time you level up in-game, you’ll receive some Legend Tokens.

Once you reach the level cap, you will continue to earn coins by getting XP in matches that you play. New characters can be unlocked for 12 000 Legend Tokens each. 

Apex Coins, on the other hand, is the currency that can only be bought using your real money but can be used in much the same way as Legend Tokens. You can use them to purchase Apex Packs, items in the Rotating Shop, and characters.

Getting Legend Tokens and Apex Coins Fast

You obviously want to accumulate as many Legend Tokens and Apex Coins as possible, and at the fastest rate possible as well. But how do you do that? The answer is actually quite simple: just play the game to the best of your ability.

There is nothing more or less efficient that you can do in Apex Legends to earn Coins and Tokens than to just play the game. For example, every time you level up, you’ll receive some Legend Coins, which you can then use to purchase new items and characters. 

Crafting materials, which are another kind of currency in the game, can only be acquired via Apex Packs, which are also granted each time you level up. The only requirement to leveling up is to accumulate plenty of XP, which is done by killing more enemies and surviving longer each match. 

Use more abilities, revive more teammates, kill more enemies, and go as far as possible. There really is no ‘get rich quick’ scheme when it comes to Apex Legends. Here’s a breakdown of accolades and actions, and how they contribute to your XP gain.

  • Winning a match: 500 XP
  • Finishing in Top 3: 300 XP
  • Getting a kill: 50 XP
  • Damage done: Divide your total damage by four - 1500 damage = 375 XP
  • Revives: 25 XP
  • Respawns: 25 XP
