Legendary items are the most powerful items that you are able to obtain in Apex Legends. The legendary pieces of gear have the same stats as the epic version, as well as giving you an additional powerful benefit - for example the Legendary Backpack reduces the use time for all healing items by 50%. The legendary items are also known as gold items, due to their colour.
How to obtain Legendary Items
The Legendary gold items can very rarely be found lying on the floor or looted from a container, but if you're looking for one, there are several ways in which you can increase your chances. The Supply Drops which come down from the skies have a fairly good chance of containing one of the legendary weapons. You'll see on your map a blue icon where it will be landing, once it's been announced - but prepare for other teams to have the same idea!
Additionally, the character Lifeline has an ultimate ability to summon a Care Package, which is filled with healing items, and can contain epic and sometimes legendary pieces of gear, such as helmets or knockdown shields.
The legendary weapons use their own specific type of ammunition, so once you've used all their shots, you won't be able to use them any longer. You can't put any attachments on these weapons.

The legendary attachments make certain weapons incredibly powerful. The two legendary optics enable you highligh enemies that you aim at, also allowing you to see them through smoke.
The Turbocharger, once attached to the Devotion LMG, makes this into a devastating weapon, capable of dealing huge amounts of damage.
