Players may unlock Legends and various cosmetic items through various types of in-game currency.
The Iron Crown Collection Event also introduced event-specific currency, called 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 can only be acquired by purchasing them with real world currency or in Battle Passes. They may be used to purchase Apex Packs, featured items in the Store and event limited items, at the following prices each:
- Legends: 750;
- Apex Packs: 500;
- Event Packs: 700;
- Thematic Packs: 400;
- Apex Packs: 100;
- Legendary skins: 1,800;
- Legendary Charms: 700;
- Epic skins and Epic Holosprays: 1,000;
- Epic Charms: 500;
- Rare skins: 500.
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:
Crafting Metals can be acquired through Apex Packs, replacing duplicate items in case the pack decides to drop an item already owned. The amount of Crafting Metals dropped are equal to half the duplicate's original cost, for example Legendary Crafting Metals are worth 600. They can also be acquired through Battle Pass levels rewards, up to 1,200 per Season.
Legend Tokens can only be acquired by leveling up, where 600 are awarded for each level, and may be used to unlock Legends, purchase recolors of Legendary skins in the Store, and reroll daily challenges, at the following prices each:
- Legends: 12,000;
- Legendary skin recolors: either 6,500 or 10,500;
- Second daily challenge reroll: 200;
- Third daily challenge reroll: 500;
- Subsequent daily challenge rerolls: 1,000.
Heirloom Shards are used to purchase items from the Mythic Store. Each Apex Pack that isn't an Event one has a less than 1% chance of dropping 150 unless 499 Packs are opened without finding any, in that case the 500th Pack is guaranteed to drop 150.
Some Collection Events, such as Anniversary, may offer 150 upon acquiring all 24 Collection Event items.
Crowns were the currency utilized during the Iron Crown Collection Event to purchase event exclusive items in the Iron Crown Store, they can only be obtained through event challenges or by opening Iron Crown packs.
