How to get Legend Tokens

Legend Tokens cannot be purchased with real cash. In fact, there’s only one way to consistently earn them in Apex Legends — leveling up. Every level (starting at level four) will award you with 600 Legend Tokens. High-level players will continue accruing Legend Tokens even after hitting max level, giving them a reason to keep chugging along and diving into the battle royale madness.

Unfortunately, that’s the only way to earn Legend Tokens. Completing challenges, participating in seasonal events, or throwing down real cash won’t directly reward you with any of the elusive currency. If you’re chasing stacks of Legend Tokens, you’ll just need to keep playing Apex.

Fastest ways to farm them

Since this currency is tied directly to leveling up, the fastest way to earn Legend Tokens is by maximizing your game time. This means outlasting your opponents is your highest priority. Racking up kills and revives is useful, but arguably the fastest way to level up is by consistently making it to the final ring. In other words, avoid confrontations that could knock you out of a match early, and be tactical about when you swoop in for a kill. Eliminating dozens of enemies will give you a huge XP payday, but it might not be worth the risk if it sends you back to the main menu ahead of schedule.

You’ll also get an XP boost when playing with friends — playing with two buddies will grant you a 10% boost to your Time Survived experience point allotment. Picking up the Battle Pass can be helpful too, as the premium track is filled with items that’ll boost your XP gains.

Tackling challenges is another great way to farm Legend Tokens. These provide you with significant chunks of XP. Make it a priority to check these missions when you log in each day and do what you can to accomplish them. That could mean playing as a character you’re unfamiliar with or racking up kills with your least favorite weapon. Whatever the case may be, it’s worth the effort to chase these down.

What are Legend Tokens used for?

Legend Tokens are used to unlock new Legends, recolor Legendary skins, and reroll daily challenges. We’d recommend saving your money to purchase Legends or recolor Legendary skins, as rerolling daily challenges can quickly add up — and it’s not often the best use of your hard-earned Legend Tokens.

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
A sage grabbing ganon by the throat.

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.
