The first question players have in regards to Crafting Metals is how to earn them in Apex Legends. To earn Crafting Metals, you’ll want to acquire Apex Packs, and the easiest way to get Apex Packs is by playing the game and leveling up. For each new level reached, you’ll earn 1 Apex Pack.

To open your Apex Pack, tab over to the Store in Apex Legends, then select Apex Packs. At the bottom right underneath the option to purchase Apex Packs, you’ll be able to view the number of Apex Packs you have available. For example, if you have 1 Apex Pack, you can select this tab to open your Apex Pack and see what’s inside.

Not only can you unlock new cosmetics in Apex Packs, but Crafting Metals as well. In the future, it’s possible that Crafting Metal rewards will be included in the seasonal Battle Pass for Apex Legends, though no confirmation on this has been released by Respawn Entertainment.

Crafting Metals can be used to immediately unlock new cosmetic items such as Legend skins, Banners, Quips, Trackers, and Finishers. To view how many Crafting Metals you have available, look at the upper right corner of your home screen. There, you can see how many Crafting Metals, Legend Tokens, and Apex Coins you have at your disposal.

To purchase cosmetic items using Crafting Metals, head over to the Legends or Armory tab. In the Legends tab, you can select your favorite character like Lifeline or Wraith, then view the skins available. If you like a particular skin, you can select it and exchange Crafting Metals in order to purchase it. Likewise in the Armory tab, you can select your favorite weapon, then view the skins available for that weapon.

Most, if not all of the items in Apex Legends, are similarly priced with the cost varying depending on rarity. Below, we’ve listed the prices for cosmetic items based on rarity.

  • Legendary - 1,200 Crafting Metals
  • Epic - 400 Crafting Metals
  • Rare - 60 Crafting Metals
  • Common - 30 Crafting Metals

To recap, Crafting Metals are a form of currency in Apex Legends that can be used to purchase cosmetic items. To earn Crafting Metals, you’ll want to level up and earn Apex Packs. The more Crafting Metals you have available, the rarer the cosmetic item you’ll be able to purchase. Now that you know what Crafting Metals are for and how to earn them, what are your thoughts?
