What are Legend Tokens in Apex Legends? Time to find out.
The Legend Tokens have more uses than you think, and you should learn how to make the most out of them.
There is nothing better than a good free-to-play game, and Apex Legends is both good and free-to-play. But since the developers of the games need money to buy food like everyone else, various economy systems have been imagined to create some revenue. Apex Legends has practically three types of in game currency, excluding event specific currencies that serve its own economy. Apex coins, Legend Tokens, and Crafting Materials.
Each currency has its own use, but in this article, we are going to focus on the most common one, but arguably the most useful one, Legend Tokens. If you are puzzled by what these tokens are, how you can get them, and what you can spend Legend Tokens on, then you are reading the right article.
How do you get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends
The only way you can earn Legend Tokens is by playing the game and earning levels, starting from level 4, each level you get, you will be awarded with 600 Tokens. There is no way you can purchase Legend Tokens, find them in Apex Packs, or earn them any other way. Even if you reach the level cap, you don’t have to worry, since you will keep getting your tokens if you earn more experience points XP.
There is some beauty in the equality of this system since everyone can take part in it without pay to win people.
What is the fastest way to get Tokens in Apex Legends?
The fastest way to get more Tokens in Apex Legends is by winning your matches. Unfortunately, the only thing that matters is how good you are at earning experience points in the game, by getting kills, better placement, etc., you need to learn how much RP is a kill and use this knowledge to get more points. On top of that, you need to focus on completing the challenges that will award you with XP.
If you want to earn more Legend Tokens, you have to work for it by targeting the right quests and playing slowly and methodically in each lobby. The way to earn more Legend Tokens is similar to the way to rank up faster.
What can you do with Legend Tokens in Apex Legends?
Legend Tokens are the first form of currency you will encounter when you start playing Apex Legends, and they can be used to either unlock new Legends, reroll the Daily Challenges or even buy some exclusive cosmetics from the in game store.
Unlock New Legends
The reason why they are so valuable for Apex Legends players is mainly the first one. If you don’t want to spend any money buying Apex Coins to unlock the different Legends, you will have to obtain legend tokens by the thousands. It is not that it is difficult to get Legend Tokens but to unlock a new character, you need to spend exactly 12.000 Legend Tokens.
So, if you are starting the game and you set your eye on some Legend that you haven’t unlocked, you will have to level up enough to earn the necessary amount of points. Since you earn 600 tokens every level, with some simple calculations, you can see that every 20 levels you can unlock a new Legend
As a tip, we would recommend you to spend your tokens at the right time, and especially before the soft rank reset of the new season, you should try to pile up tokens to unlock the new Legend that is going to be released.
Reroll Daily Challenges
If you want to earn more experience points, the best way to do it is by completing the daily challenges. Unfortunately not all the challenges are doable or enjoyable for some players, and that is where the Legend Tokens come in handy.
You can reroll one daily challenge for free, but every subsequent reroll will cost you Legend tokens. The prices are 200 for the second reroll, 500 for the third, and each one after that will cost 1000. The cost resets back to normal on the next day. This will not change your game at all, but at least you can choose the challenges you can complete easily, to get more XP, to get levels, to get more Legend Tokens. It is an endless circle of fun since more Apex Legends equals more fun!
Legendary Skin Recolors
When it comes to the Legend Tokens, Apex Legends found another interesting way for the players to use the extra change they might have laying around. If you own legendary skins for some Legends, there are some times during collection events that you can spend some Legends Tokens and change the appearance of a skin. It's like the ranked rewards but better!
They will appear in the featured tab of the store, as two separate options marked exclusive. The first one will be worth 6.500 and the second one 10.500. It is more a skin remaster, rather than a skin recolor. The skins you got from any collection event can usually be recolored there. So if you have legendary skins that you got bored of, you can give them a fresh look thanks to the Legend Tokens. Just add a few ranked emblems and everything will look like a different game.
