There's a wide variety of incredible cosmetics available in Apex Legends, but in order to access them you're going to need to get your hands on some in-game currency.
The popular battle royale title, which has attracted over 50 million players since its shock February 4 launch, allows players to purchase new weapon skins, banners and voice quips with micro-transactions.
None of these items provide players with any competitive advantage in the game, but will make your character stand out from the pack with some awesome gear. Players will be expecting even more cosmetics to arrive as well, particularly as they move closer and closer to the Season 2 Battle Pass.
So, let's take a look at how you can earn Apex Coins, Legend Tokens and Crafting Metals in order to unlock them...
How to get Apex Coins
The easiest way to get your hands on new items is by buying some Apex Coins, which are available for purchase in the game using real-world money.
Players can spend anywhere from $9.99 up to $99.99 on this currency, which can then be used to buy Apex Packs, specific items found in the in-game store or features from the Armory. Apex Coins can also be used to unlock new playable legends as well.
How to get Legend Tokens
Legend Tokens cannot be purchased with cash and are awarded to players for reaching the next level, allowing players who earn enough of them to unlock new legends from the store.

With leaks from data miners seemingly revealing the names and abilities of some potential new arrivals for Apex Legends, it seems like a lot of new content is on the horizon. So, the more Legend Tokens you have, the better.
How to get Crafting Metals
Finally, players can also unlock new items using Crafting Metals. These can be exchanged for weapons skins inside the Armory, but currently the only way to get your hands on them is inside Apex Packs.
For players who don’t really want to spend any cash on in-game cosmetics, Apex Packs can also be unlocked by simply playing the game, as they are are offered as rewards to players who have levelled up.
You can find different variants of Crafting Materials inside these packs, too. These include Common (15), Rare (30), Epic (200) and Legendary (600) types, which all have a different value. The rarer the Crafting Materials you find, the more currency you will have to spend on crafting cosmetics. These typically sell for between 30 to 1,200 Crafting Metals a piece.
Respawn have released the expected drop rate for the rarity level of items that can be found inside them, with players having a 100% chance of finding at least one rare item inside.
For those planning on buying Apex Packs but worried about getting the same item multiple times, Respawn have confirmed that Apex Packs have duplicate protection, meaning that once you have unlocked an item, you won’t receive it from an Apex Pack again.
