Players may unlock Legends and various cosmetic items through four types of in-game currency, which include Apex Coins.svg Apex Coins, Crafting Metals.svg Crafting Metals, Legend Tokens.svg Legend Tokens and Heirloom Shards.svg Heirloom Shards.

The Iron Crown Icon.svg Iron Crown Collection Event also introduced event-specific currency, called Iron Crown Icon.svg Crowns, which can be used only during an event to unlock event-exclusive items, and it's currently the only event where it was possible to use such event-specific currency.

Apex Coins[]

Crafting Metals may be used to purchase cosmetic items such as Legend and weapon skins, intro and kill quips, gun charms, banner Frames, banner trackers, holo-sprays and finishers. The amount of Crafting Metals required to purchase an item vary based on the item's rarity:

  • Common grade item: Crafting Metals 30;
  • Rare grade item: Crafting Metals 60;
  • Epic grade item: Crafting Metals 400;
  • Legendary grade item: Crafting Metals 1,200.

Crafting Metals can be acquired through Apex Packs, replacing duplicate items in case the pack decides to drop an item the player already owns. The amount of Crafting Metals dropped are equal to half the duplicate's original cost, for example Legendary Crafting Metals are worth Crafting Metals 600.

They can also be acquired through Battle Pass levels rewards, up to Crafting Metals 1,200 per Season.

Legend Tokens[]

  • Legendary skin recolors: either Legend Tokens 6,500 or Legend Tokens 10,500;
  • Legends: Legend Tokens 12,000 each;
  • Second daily challenge reroll: Legend Tokens 200;

Heirloom Shards may be used to purchase items from the Heirloom Store. Each Apex Pack has a less than 1%[1] chance of dropping 150 Heirloom Shards (Chance estimated at 1 in 500 or 0.2%). Upon opening the 500th Apex Pack the player is guaranteed to receive Heirloom Shards, however if Heirloom Shards are received before reaching 500 Apex Packs, the counter will reset back to 0 from the pack that contained the shards. Collection Events will either reward a specific Heirloom Set, or Heirloom Shards 150, upon optaining all 24 Collection Event skins.
