What Are Crafting Metals?

Crafting Metals are a currency that can be used to, craft and create skins as well as other cosmetic items without needing to rely on random drops.

It's basically an alternative to buying coins that can be used to unlock the above items too.

How To Get Crafting Metals

Crafting Metals are found in Apex Packs, which are earned for ranking up or purchasable with real money. You only get a small amount in each, though, so you'll want to make sure you're levelling up efficiently.

The materials come in four rarities:

  • Common Crafting Metal = 15
  • Rare Crafting Metal = 30
  • Epic Crafting Metal = 200
  • Legendary Crafting Metal = 600

Once you reach the required amount, you can convert those materials into the item of your choice, but be prepared to spend plenty of time working towards them – Legendary Skins cost as much as 1,200 Crafting Metals.
