In order to gain access to some of the game’s coolest Legends and cosmetics, you’ll need to have a hefty amount of Legend tokens. We’ve put together an easy how-to guide that should show you the ropes.

For those new to Apex Legends, perhaps inspired by the recent influx of streamers enjoying the game like NICKMERCS, you may be wondering how you can get Legend Tokens.

Even if you’re not new, you may not know all the ways in which you can obtain the currency, so for all those players, here’s how you can get Apex Legends Legend Tokens.

As well as the seasonal Battle Pass, Apex Legends has loads of cosmetics and items available for players through a variety of avenues.

While a lot of cosmetics are provided through the base game for each of the Legends that players can purchase or craft, Apex Legends also offers items through the store.

Often Apex Legends will have exclusive recolors of skins in the store which players can only purchase with Legend Tokens, and with the recent recolor store takeover in Season 10, players may be wondering how to get more of the currency.

What are Legend Tokens in Apex Legends?

Legend Tokens are used to purchase new Legends and exclusive recolors.

Respawn Entertainment hasn’t exactly made it easy for fans to distinguish between all the different currencies the game possesses.

Apex Legends currently has four main currencies in the game:

  • Apex Coins
  • Legend Tokens
  • Crafting Metals
  • Heirloom Shards

While Apex Coins act as the main currency that players can obtain through the Battle Pass and actually spending some real cash, Crafting Metals, Heirloom Shards, and Legend Tokens are slightly different.

Crafting Metals are earned through the Battle Pass and can also be obtained through Apex Packs. Heirloom Shards are also a rare drop in Apex Packs.

Legend Tokens work slightly differently from these other currencies.

Legend Tokens can be acquired by simply leveling up in Apex Legends. Once players achieve level 4 they will gain 600 Legend Tokens for every level up.

To unlock a new Legend it will cost 12,000 Legend Tokens, meaning players will have to reach at least level 20 before they will have enough to purchase a new Legend, so pick one wisely. Even if you hit the ceiling in terms of the game’s level cap, you can still continue to earn more tokens via experience points in matches.

Here are the best ways that you can level up fast in Apex Legends:

  • Kill an enemy to earn 50 XP points
  • Survive for longer in games, the higher you finish, the more XP you get
  • Party up as you can earn a bonus 5% XP for every friend you play with
  • If you can, get a full squad together and you can earn an extra 10% XP every round
  • Complete challenges to earn big one-off sums of XP
  • The Battle Pass offers XP rewards

So, there you have it, that’s how you can get Legend Tokens in Apex Legends. For more, check out our article on how to track your Heirloom progress.

Apex Legends Season 10 Ranked updates: Arenas, map rotation, split dates, & rewards

A new season of Apex Legends means a new season of Ranked Leagues, from map rotation to split dates, we’ve got you covered.

Published

Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence is almost here, which also means an update for Ranked Leagues, so let’s get into the details.

Apex Legends Ranked Leagues is an excellent place for those who want to test their skills out and play for points in a competitive environment, which, starting in Season 10, will also be available in Arenas.

No matter how good you are, Apex Legends has a detailed ranking system that will place you on a similar playing field once you play enough games. With Season 10 incoming, let’s check out the updates arriving for the ranked playlist.

Apex Legends season 10 ranked worlds edge

Although there are no significant changes for Ranked Leagues this season, there are still a few things to go over, such as split dates, rewards, and map rotation.

Split dates

As Apex Legends Season 10 begins on August 3, this would then mean that the first ranked split will also start on the same day, with the second split coming halfway through the season.

Due to the recent server issues in Apex Legends, Respawn has decided to extend the first split by one week, meaning the first split now ends on September 28.

With that being said, this means that the second split will also start on September 28, ending when the season finishes. This means that players will lose one week from the second split, so hopefully, there aren’t further server issues.

Map rotation

Every new season two maps get picked for Ranked Leagues, one which spans the first split and another that spans the second.

For Season 10, players will be dropping into Decimated World’s Edge, which has been showcased in the trailers leading up to Season 10’s release.

In the second split, players will be back on Kings Canyon, or at least the Season 8 version of Kings Canyon, with all the most recently made changes to it.

Season 10 rewards

Depending on what level you managed to reach in Ranked Leagues for Season 9, players will receive rewards at the start of Season 10.

The rewards include gun charms, badges, season-long dive trails for those who manage to reach the higher ranks, and new this season, Holo Sprays.

The rewards for Season 9’s Ranked Leagues have been revealed by EA, showing off the badges and dive trails players will receive.

Ranked Arenas

Season 10 will also mark the first season of Ranked Arenas, which Respawn released details about fairly recently.

3 new BR maps will join Phase Runner, Party Crasher, and Overflow, with one of them joining the trio and rotating with each other every two weeks. The new maps include:

  • King’s Canyon – Hillside
  • World’s Edge – Dome
  • Olympus – Oasis

As well as new maps, Ranked Arenas will also feature new maps and an exclusive ranking system.

Although not much has been shared about how ranking will work in Arenas, we suspect the names and ranks will be the same. However, how you receive points and the number of points you need to rank up will differ from Battle Royale mode.

That’s all for the ranked playlist in Apex Legends Season 10. For more updates, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL, and if you’ve been a victim of the recent unfair banning, check out our article for an explanation.

We’ve found a great way to check Apex Legends’ server status for all regions so you can see whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down.

apex legends servers down server status

Like any other popular multiplayer game, apex Legends has its fair share of bugs and server issues. However, we’ve found a great way for players to check their region’s Apex Legends server status, so let’s get into how you can check if the servers are down.

Apex Legends dropped Season 10 on August 3, which to many player’s surprise, was a very smooth launch with next to no server issues. This was a very different situation from Season 9’s launch, which saw a host of problems.

Although the servers have been relatively stable recently, players encounter these issues reasonably often and may even wonder whether it’s an issue on their end.

If you encounter any future server issues, we have an excellent way for you to check the Apex Legends server status.

Are Apex Legends servers down?

Due to the Evolution Collection Event update that was released on September 14, players are experiencing difficulty connecting to the EA Servers.

However, it is important to note that this is not your connection, but rather the Apex Legends servers struggling to stabilize after the update.

Luckily, Respawn Entertainment has been hard at work to fix this issue, releasing a recent patch that seems to have stabilized player’s servers and extending the ranked split for those who have lost grinding time due to the issues.

If you are still experiencing an issue even after the recent fix, Respawn has confirmed that they will be working hard to ship another update on September 22, hopefully fixing the issue for everyone and making the server much more stable.

One of the most obvious ways to stay updated on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down is by following updates on Apex Legends Twitter account and the development team at Respawn.

Usually, one of those accounts will be updating and communicating to players about any server issues going on. Further, you could even follow the Director of Communications for Respawn, Ryan Rigney, who is usually great at keeping players in the loop regarding whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down.

If you don’t have Twitter or have checked and haven’t seen any update on whether or not the Apex Legends servers are down, perhaps the problems you are experiencing are that of your setup or region.

How to check the server status

There is a great way to check the regional Apex Legends server status for these specific problems so that you can see whether the issues you are experiencing are regional or due to your internet service provider.

The way to do so is through a handy website called apexlegendsstatus, which will give you a breakdown of server status in all the available regions, as well as all the platforms you could be playing the game on.

The website will even tell you how much latency (ms) in each server, significantly indicating its stability.

Further, you can also report issues if there isn’t too much notice about the issue on the website, which will be added to a live report map you can check to see if people in your region are also experiencing the issue.

So, if you’re having issues, check this website to see whether it’s the platform or server you are playing that is having problems, or if these are all up and running, you can put it down to your setup.

Well, there you have it. This is the best way you can check the Apex Legends server status. For more on Apex, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and check out our recent article on what Ordnance are and how to use them.

Apex Legends players slam “joke” $10 Holospray

Apex Legends players are slamming the developers for introducing an “overpriced” Holospray in the battle royale.

Nessie Holospray in Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment often introduce new cosmetic items in Apex Legends, but players aren’t happy with a new Holospray that they consider to be overpriced.

There are various unique characters and weapons to choose from in Apex Legends, and you can customize these with some neat cosmetics, including new skins, heirlooms, and Holosprays.

Some of these items are more popular than others, and a few of them sometimes leave players scratching their heads. Now, a new Holospray has been revealed and Apex fans aren’t happy with it.

Apex Legends Horizon using ability

Reddit user the_best_wraith_main showcased a new Apex Legends Holospray that’s available for purchase. It seems to be Nessie wearing a golden crown while sitting on top of a throne.

While this is a fun little cosmetic, the player was upset about the high price of the item. “10 dollars for this Holospray? Is this some joke that I can’t understand?” asked the Redditor.

Many of the commenters were in agreement that $10 seems a bit too pricey for a simple Holospray and began slamming the developers for this decision.

Many players were quick to blame EA for this and mentioned that you could previously get much more for this price. “Remember when 10 pounds allowed you to get prime titans,” wrote one user.

Other commenters stated that these decisions are made by Respawn and not EA while advising players to not buy overpriced items. Despite this, a few users still appreciated the art on the Holospray.

There was also a little Nessie emote in Season 9, and you could actually see the monster come out of the water in the original King’s Canyon map. So, it’s fitting that developers made a Holospray for the beast.
