Legend Tokens are one of the most important currencies in Apex Legends as they allow players to unlock each of the game’s characters, but how do you get more of them, and what do they do?

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale titles in the genre, and is still fighting for the top spot against other competitors such as Fortnite and Warzone.

A huge reason for this is the title’s array of interesting and personality-driven characters that players develop a connection with. Unlike typical FPS’, Apex’s roster of Legends are interwoven into the game’s lore and are even given their own animated backstories in the ‘Stories from the Outlands’ series.

Players are heavily encouraged to collect Legend Tokens, but how do you collect more of this currency, and does it have any other uses outside of unlocking characters?


What are Legend Tokens in Apex Legends?

Legend Tokens are earned through leveling up in-game.

Legend Tokens are incredibly important and cannot be bought with IRL money, meaning that earning the currency all comes down to how much you play and how you perform in-game.

As Apex Legends is a free-to-play title, it has its fair share of currencies, including Heirloom Shards, Apex Coins, Crafting Metals, and of course, Legend Tokens. So get playing to accumulate a healthy pile of Legend Tokens.

Apex Legends players earn 600 tokens every time they level up.

Each time a player advances up a level, they’re awarded 600 Legend Tokens. As mentioned above, Legend Tokens cannot be purchased with IRL money, so the only way to collect them is to level up during the game.

With characters costing 12,000 tokens each, this means players will need to level up 20 times before they can purchase a Legend of their choice. So, if you’re looking to maximize the amount of Legend Tokens you’re earning, focus on performing well in your games so you receive as much XP as possible.

What can I spend Legend Tokens on in Apex Legends?

Respawn occasionally allow players to buy skin recolors with Legend Tokens.

The first main use for Legend Tokens is obviously to buy new Legends, but another important aspect of them is that you can buy Legendary skin recolors in the store.

However, it should be pointed out that you do have to own the original skin before you can purchase the alternative color. These cosmetics are usually only available for a limited time in the store so make sure you snap them up before time runs out.

Finally, you can re-roll your challenges for a set amount of Legend Tokens that doubles every time you perform the action on the same day. It’s worth noting that the cost resets 24 hours later so sometimes it may be better to save your currency and wait for the cost to drop again.

Here’s a complete list of what you can spend your Apex Legend tokens on:

  • Legends: 12,000 Legend Tokens
  • Legendary Skin Recolors: 6,500 or 10,500 Legend Tokens
  • Daily Challenge Reroll: Free
  • Second Daily Challenge Reroll: 200 Legend Tokens
  • Third Daily Challenge Reroll: 500 Legend Tokens
  • Any extra Daily Challenge Rerolls: 1,000 Legend Tokens

So, there you have it, that’s exactly what Legends Tokens are and how you can collect more of them in-game. Before long, you’ll have every character unlocked and you’ll likely have an abundance of the currency if you play the game a lot.
