How To Get Crafting Metals In Apex Legends: Apex Packs
The primary method of obtaining Crafting Metals is through Apex Packs. As you ascend levels in Apex Legends, you'll periodically receive Apex Packs as a reward. With the Apex Legends new level cap in Apex Legends Season 14: Hunted, there are more Apex Packs than ever to collect. Alternatively, Apex Packs can be had via Treasure Packs, free Prize Tracks from special in-game events like the Apex Legends Summer Showdown Event, and the Seasonal Battle Pass. And if that's not enough, you can buy Apex Packs outright in the Store for Apex Coins.
How To Get Crafting Metals In Apex Legends: Treasure Packs
Not only do Treasure Packs sometimes include Apex Packs, but they also occasionally contain Crafting Metals. Treasure Packs originated in Season 5 with the Apex Legends Broken Ghost Season Quest. Log in each day and loot supply bins for a chance at a Treasure Pack. If you miss a day or two of Treasure Packs, you can catch up in exchange for Apex Coins.

Apex's seasonal Battle Passes offer all sorts of goodies like Character and Weapon Skins, Skydive Emotes, Trackers, and even Crafting Metals. In fact, inside each Battle Pass is a whopping 1,200 Crafting Metals up for grabs.
