Heirlooms in Apex Legends offer players a Legend-exclusive cosmetic item that will no doubt add some flare to your gameplay. They are some of the most prestigious items in the game, so let’s take a look at all of the Heirlooms in Apex Legends, how to get them, and what they do.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale title like Fortnite and Warzone 2, and none of the paid elements can help in improving your skills. However, this has never stopped players from spending on their favorite cosmetics that make their characters stand out in lobbies.

Just like Fortnite has its fair share of the rarest skins, Apex Legends has Heirlooms. These rare cosmetics signify that the owner has spent heavily in the game and compensates for the price by giving your Legends some of the coolest animations, sounds, and styles.

On that note, here’s everything you need to know about Heirlooms in Apex Legends.

Heirlooms are purely cosmetic melee items in Apex Legends.

An Heirloom is a Legend-specific melee item that Apex Legends players can purchase with Heirloom Shards, which are obtained in Apex Packs.

The reason Heirlooms are so rare is that there is a 1 in 500 chance of receiving Heirloom Shards in an Apex Pack, and only on your 500th pack are you guaranteed the shards.

Further, Heirlooms usually come out during a Collection Event, where players need to collect every item in the event to receive the new Heirloom. However, these can be very pricey.
