How to get Heirlooms in Apex Legends
Heirlooms are sought after items in Apex Legends that can only be acquired in two ways:
- Through Collection Events, players can unlock a new heirloom by purchasing the event set.
- By spending 150 Heirloom Shards to purchase an Heirloom from the in-game store
Collection Events grant players the ability to unlock a new, never-seen-before Heirloom that will only be available for a limited time. Once all the items in the event have been collected, which can be very pricey.

The other way is by spending Heirloom Shards in the in-game shop, which will let you purchase the Heirloom of your choice.
How to get Heirloom Shards in Apex Legends
Unfortunately, there is only one way to get your hands on Heirloom Shards, and that is by opening Apex Packs.
You only have a 1 in 500 chance of getting Heirloom Shards in a pack, and it may take you all 500 Apex Packs to actually get them. The pack will include 150 Heirloom Shards inside it, so you’ll immediately be able to purchase the Heirloom of your choice.

By calculating your level reached in each season’s battle pass, daily treasure packs collected, and event packs received, the Apex Packs Calculator website can roughly estimate how many packs you have opened. Therefore, how many you are off before receiving your Heirloom Shards in the 500th.

Remember that you may have to estimate some categories, like how many packs you have purchased or how many treasure packs you collected in the previous seasons. However, even with rough estimates of these categories, you should still get a good idea of how many packs you have opened.
You can get an even better estimate by checking your account stats for each season in the lobby menu by clicking your name. This will give you a breakdown of your level reached each season and make the Apex Pack Calculator more accurate regarding the number of seasonal packs you have opened.
