Apex Legends has just come out, but as you’ve probably noticed, two of the eight characters are stuck. These characters are Caustic and Mirage and to unlock them there are only two ways: one is the longest, and the other is the fastest, but also the most expensive. In this guide, we have detailed all the methods to unlock Caustic and Mirage in Apex Legends. Let’s get started.
How to unlock Caustic and Mirage in Apex Legends
How To Unlock Caustic and Mirage | Method #1: Slowest, But Cheapest
To unlock Caustic and Mirage in Apex Legends you either need to have a combined total of 1500 Apex Coins (as both Legends cost 750 Apex Coins apiece) or have performed well enough in matches to have earned a whopping 24,000 Legend Tokens, which is the reddish currency on display at the top right-hand corner of your screen in the main menu.
We’ll get to Apex Coins (and how much you’ll need to shell out) in just a moment. For those who want to go purely free-to-play, you’ll want to know about the Legend Tokens. While it’s a bit of a thankless task, it is entirely possible to get enough Legend Tokens via leveling up during playing. Getting 12,000 Legend Tokens to unlock either Caustic or Mirage, though, will likely take 12-15 hours of pretty solid play. Certainly doable, but a tough ask nonetheless.
If you’ve done either of them, go to the Legends tab on the main menu and press Triangle/Y over the new Legend you wish to unlock.
How to unlock Caustic and Mirage – Method #2 | Fastest, But Expensive
Apex Legends has got the microtransactions. Love them or loathe them, they’re an essential part of a game like Apex Legends. Each of Caustic or Mirage cost 750 Apex Coins to unlock, but I may as well be speaking gibberish because, after all, how much is that in real-world currency?
At the moment the minimum amount of Apex Coins you can buy through the in-game store is 1000. In the U.S. that’ll set you back $9.99. Buying two lots of them will give you enough (and change) to unlock Caustic and Mirage.
Now you can use Mirage and Caustic. Enjoy!
