  1. Thank you, this was very helpful.

  2. But I really like Apex tokens and what else when I paid the hundred dollar one it didn’t come up

    1. You’d have to talk to the game’s support: https://help.ea.com/en/apex-legends/apex-legends/

  3. Is there any way to know how much you have to level up to get a apex pack? Id like the idea of getting packs by playing without having to buy coins. Maybe by how many legendary coins you earn?

    1. I’m not aware of a way to know that unfortunately.

  4. You get one at 23 and one at 43

  5. I’m level 21 and only have 10800 legend tokens not enough for a new legend.

    1. Likewise. Think I’m L21 or 22, but not enough yet to unlock a new legend.

    2. That’s strange, I’ll have to look into it a bit. My numbers might be off.
