Obviously, nothing comes close to the glorious feeling of a BR win (besides absolutely smoking a team in the Arena and then round 3 bow hunting them), but what's any victory worth if you look like an amateur that got lucky? Separate yourself from the day-one players with some of Apex's incredible skins. And if you've been playing for a while, you might be sat on enough Crafting Materials and Legend Tokens to get some of this stuff for free. So let's take a look at what's in the store this week!
Apex Legends Item Store: Featured
This part of the Apex Legend's Store is the Featured section. Here, you can find new, seasonal items every week after the update.

Apex Legends Item Store: Item Packs
This part of the Apex Legend's store is for Item Packs. These are basically the random loot crates of this game. You get three items, and you might get that Legendary skin you wanted, or you might get nothing but trash, so continue at your own risk.
A single Apex Legend's Item Pack costs 100 Apex Coin ($1), and here's how the probability of getting high-end loot breaks down:
|Probability Per Pack||100%||24.8%|
It's fun, but it is also a kind of gambling, so as we said - continue at your own risk with Item Packs.
Apex Legends Item Store: Mythics
This part of the Store is where you buy high-end Prestige Skins for your characters, and Heirloom melee weapons. Prestige Skins and Heirloom weapons are unique to each character and can only be bought with Heirloom Shards, but we go into how to acquire Heirloom Shards further down in this article.
Prestige Skins Available This Week
We get one Prestige Skin in the store each week. This week we have Bloodhound for 150 Heirloom Shards:
Heirloom Weapons Available This Week
|Item||Legend||Price in Heirloom Shards|
|Dead Man's Curve||Revenant||150|
|Too Much Witt||Mirage||150|
These are some of the best items in the game, but don't worry if you don't have the Shards yet, it's a long-term project.
When Does The Apex Store Reset?
The Apex Store reset's every week on Tuesdays at 12:00 PT (15:00 ET, 20:00 GMT, 21:00 CET). This is when the Weekly Update occurs, and you can usually expect bug fixes and balance changes to be implemented at the same time. So fear not, you'll never need to wait too long for that new Loba skin you were after.
Apex Legends Currencies
In Apex Legends, there are three main currencies that can be used to unlock new items, and buy or craft cosmetics. Here's how they appear in game:
There's also a very rare and exclusive currency called Heirloom Shards, but you won't find nearly as much of that in your time playing Apex Legends. Let's deal with the three main currencies first.
Apex Coins are the premium currency, these are directly exchanged for real world money. Apex Coin is basically V-Bucks, CoD Points, Riot Points, or VP, from similar games. Here's how much they cost, and how much they equate to Legend Tokens:
|750 (Price of 1 Legend)||$7.50||£5.99||€7.50|
Crafting Materials are found in Apex Packs and can be used to craft weapon and character skins. The best items you can craft peak out at around the 2,400 price point, and you can expect to find this many Crafting Materials when you get the following rarities in packs:
- Common (Grey): 15
- Rare (Blue): 30
- Epic (Purple): 200
- Legendary (Gold): 600
You cannot buy Crafting Materials with Apex Coins, unfortunately. They can only be acquired in Apex Packs.
Legend Tokens are a currency you earn for free by levelling up, although they can only be spent on buying new Legends, re-rolling Daily Challenges, and unlocking skin recolors. You get 600 Legend Tokens per level up, so for every 20 levels you'll get 12,000 tokens, which is just enough to buy a new Legend. Re-rolling Daily Challenges costs 200 Legend Tokens, and skin recolors vary in price.
You obviously can't buy the best things in the game with Legend Tokens, but having a free currency you can grind for is a nice addition to the game.
Heirloom Shards are a rare type of currency that can only be acquired from Apex Packs, and very occasionally through events. These can only be spent at the Mythic section of the shop, and once you've purchased everything in the Mythic store, you will no long find these Heirloom Shards in Apex Packs. Fun fact, you've got a less than 1% chance of finding Heirloom Shards in Packs, so count yourself very lucky when you do.
