Are you tired of playing the same six characters again and again in Apex Legends? Unlock the rest of the roster through this guide.
Every Battle Royale game that has come out in the last few years has tried its best to differentiate gameplay from one another. For example, PUBG has that classic first-person/third-person shooter vibe, while Fortnite offers a build mode where players can build structures around the map.
Of course, Apex Legends added unique flair and flavor to the battle royale genre through characters with unique abilities known as ‘Legends.’
New Apex Legends players are given six playable characters to choose from. The rest of the characters in the Apex Legends roster can be unlocked by amassing two unique in-game currencies.

To unlock more Legends in Apex Legends, you will need to acquire in-game currency known as Apex Coins (Paid) or Legend Tokens (Free).
