It’s known for
being engaging, wild, and giving players the opportunity to express their true
personalities. Apex Legends is a free-to-play online shooter with plenty of
perks and features to keep it entertaining and interesting. Of all of the
Battle Royale games, Apex Legends has one of the widest varieties of skins
available, meaning players can dress their character exactly as they choose.
New skins aren’t free, though. In order to be able to access them, you need to
have one of the in-game currencies at your disposal.
To get currency
in-game, there are a few different things you can do. Microtransactions are the
easiest and quickest way to build up your collection of in-game currency. This
means paying real money for one of the currencies that Apex Legends has. Apex
Coins are one of the game’s payment methods, and you can only get these through
microtransactions, for example. Some players are critical of the concept in
general, but microtransactions have become fairly commonplace in modern
There are other
ways to get in-game currency, though. Grinding is another method, and it’s
almost as old as gaming itself. In Apex Legends, you can grind for certain
tokens by prioritizing them when you play. For example, you can adapt your
strategy or style in the game towards earning more of these currencies. You can
generally unlock or win more of a certain token or Shard through achieving
certain feats or killing a particular enemy.
Tokens and How to Use Them
Legend Tokens are
one of the currencies in Apex Legends, and they have the same value as Apex
Coins. However, you can actually win Legend Tokens, which is what sets them
apart from Apex Coins. Their status means you can use Legend Tokens to purchase
some of the most exclusive and desirable skins in the entire game. You can even
use them to buy new legends altogether.
also relatively easy to win Legend Tokens. You can earn them naturally as you
play, without needing to grind if you don’t want to. For example, you generally
receive Legend Tokens when you level up. If you focus on getting as much XP as
possible while you play, then you should be able to accumulate enough Legend
Tokens without ever needing to pay for them via microtransactions.
Shards and How to Use Them
Heirloom Shards are
the newest currency to have been introduced to Apex Legends. This currency is
unique to each legend, and they’re much harder to win or earn than the other
currencies. Heirloom Shards may appear in Apex Legends Apex Packs. If you win a
Shard this way, you can then exchange it for the Heirloom that it corresponds
You can exchange
Heirloom Shards for some of the most powerful items in the game, so it’s
definitely worthwhile trying to get a hold of them if you can. With some of the
weapons that correspond to Heirloom Shards, you’re a force to be reckoned with
on the Apex Legends battlefield.
