  • Respawn Tokens give you a second chance in a Solos match
  • Tokens expire after round four and are exchanged for Evo Charge

Not sure how Respawn Tokens work in the Apex Legends Solos mode? Apex Legends is bringing back the ability to play as a solo player for a limited time, during Season 21.

Respawn Tokens are a major factor when playing alone, providing some relief in lieu of a squad bringing you back into the game when you go down. So you can hit the ground running, here is how Respawn Tokens work.

What are Respawn Tokens?

In Solo matches, you start with one Respawn Token that allows you to rejoin a game after you have been killed.

The Respawn Token does not last indefinitely, as it expires at the end of round four. If you aren't sure which round you are in, you can see the current round under the map in the top left of the screen. If you die before that point you get another go. After round four, you have just one life to live.

If you make it to round five and you still haven't used your Respawn Token, it will be turned into Evo Charge to help you reach the maximum level.
