Apex Legends has lots of cosmetics and skins for players to try. Like COD Warzone, there are many ways to get cosmetics in Apex Legends, but they are expensive and need a lot of grinding. We also have many new characters and other items that you can buy.
You must have in-game currency to obtain all of these items and materials in Apex Legends. Apex Legends has three in-game currencies: Legend Tokens, Apex Coins, and Crafting Metals.
All of these in-game currencies are valuable because they serve different functions and can be used to purchase other items in the game. Apex Coins are used as in-game shop currency, Legend Tokens are used to get new characters, and Crating Metals are for buying cosmetics.

How to Get Crafting Metals in Apex Legends
Let’s say you want to buy some cosmetics and need Crafting Metals to do that. But Crafting Metals are very hard to come by. Without spending real-life money and spending lots and lots of time grinding, getting cosmetics is next to impossible in Apex Legends.
