Apex Legends: micro-transactions in Battle Royale

Apex Legends: micro-transactions in Battle Royale

Free2Play with micro transaction

That is how you buy items in Apex Legends, there are three currencies:

  • Apex Coins – These you buy for real money to buy Apex Packs
  • Legend Tokens – This currency you earn in the game at a level-up and it is used to buy colors for legendary weapons and skins in the shop or to unlock new characters
  • Crafting Metals – These you unlock in Apex Legends to create skins and items


What do the Apex Packs offer? There are different packs that contain different items depending on the cost. So there are about:

Apex Legends Starter Pack for $ 5

  • 600 apex coins
  • Exclusive animated weapon skin fresh meat RE45
  • Exclusive food frenzy badge


Founder pack for $ 30

  • 2,000 apex coins
  • Exclusive legendary Hemlok Demon Weapon Skin
  • 3 exclusive Roughneck character skins (1 each for Wraith, Bloodhound and Gibraltar)
  • 3 exclusive badge frames (1 each for Wraith, Bloodhound and Gibraltar)
  • 1 exclusive founder plaque


You can also buy the coins extra. 1,000 coins cost about $ 10.

Apex Packs you get in the game as a kind of Lootbox, if your hero gets a level-up. Overall, you’ll unlock 45 Apex Packs. The Lootboxes never contain items that you already own. In addition, one of 30 packs should always be a legendary item.

Purchase of cosmetic items but also possible from heroes

Which cosmetic items are there? There are several things you can unlock or buy. This includes:

  • Skins for your characters
  • claims
  • banner
  • Finishing Moves
  • weapon skins


Can characters be bought with Apex coins? Yes, it is currently possible to buy two of the eight characters for every 750 Apex coins. You unlock the heroes but also with Legend Tokens. For each character, you will need to spend 12,000 Legend Tokens.

Why do players express concerns? Just the fact that characters can also be purchased, currently provides for some skepticism. Although it is (currently) only two of the heroes so far eight, yet this leaves a somewhat bland connotation. Because the characters (called Legends in the game) have unique abilities, including an Ultimate. How exactly this affects the game, you will see.

The developers want to create a fair system, which is why Droprates should be announced at the Lootboxen. In addition, they point out that characters can always be unlocked in the Apex Legends game and do not need to be purchased.
