Legend Tokens in Apex Legends are sometimes treated as an afterthought with Apex Coins, Crafting Metals, and Heirloom Shards in the mix, but in reality, Legend Tokens are just as significant. Apex Legends features all sorts of different currencies, with Legend Tokens serving as the game's premier free-to-play currency. With that said, let's go over how to get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends and what this special in-game currency is good for.

Legend Tokens are awarded in Apex Legends purely through levelling. Every account level you gain is met with a fixed sum of 600 Legend Tokens. There is no other way to get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends — you can't even buy Legend Tokens with real money.


In a rush to gather up some Legend Tokens? There are some ways to expedite the process and gain levels quicker. For example, partying up and playing matches with friends will boost the amount of XP you gain after each match. All in all, here are all the factors that determine one's XP gains in a match:

  • Won Match: 900 XP
  • Top 5 Finish: 300 XP
  • Kills: 50 XP per kill
  • Damage Done: 0.25 XP per 1 damage point
  • Time Survived: 3 XP per second survived
  • Revive Ally: 25 XP per revive
  • Respawn Ally: 200 XP per respawn
  • First Kill of the Day: 500 XP
  • Killed Champion: 500 XP per kill of the champion squad
  • Kill Leader: 50 XP if the player had been the kill leader in a match at any point
  • Champion Squad: 500 XP if the player was on the champion squad going into a match
  • Playing with Friends: +5% XP bonus to Time Survived
  • Playing with Friends (x2): +10% XP bonus to Time Survived

Essentially, everything you do in a match of Apex Legends earns you XP. The better you do, the more XP you'll earn, and in turn, the faster you'll level up and earn Legend Tokens.

The level cap in Apex Legends is 500. However, you can still earn Legend Tokens after reaching the level cap. At level 500, you'll get 600 Legend Tokens for every 18,000 XP you earn.
