Apex Legends Heirlooms list: How to get Heirloom Shards

Mirage Heirloom Apex LegendsRespawn Entertainment

If you’re wondering how to get Heirloom shards in Apex Legends, and what heirlooms are available to purchase with them, here’s everything you need to know.

Apex Legends’ Heirlooms are ultra-rare cosmetics that not only look incredibly cool, they include various unique animations, intro quips and banner poses. Unlike the game’s Legend skins, you can actually see your Heirloom in your character’s hand when your weapon is holstered.

Respawn is continually adding new Heirlooms to Apex Legends, but some Legends are still without one. From Pathfinder’s beloved Boxing Gloves to Octane’s deadly Butterfly Knife, there are plenty of great cosmetics to choose from.

Here’s how to get Heirloom shards, and what heirlooms you can choose to unlock with them.


How to get Heirloom Shards

Heirloom Shards are the currency used to purchase Heirlooms from the Heirloom Store, but to get these, you’ll first need to open some Apex Packs. Apex Packs can be obtained by leveling up, ranking up the battle pass, and purchasing them with the game’s premium currency (Apex Coins). 

According to the Apex Legends official FAQ, every Apex Pack has less than a 1% chance of dropping 150 Heirloom Shards. As of writing, this is currently the only way you can obtain Heirloom Shards. Apex Legends Heirlooms cost 150 Heirloom Shards to craft, so you’ll need to either get incredibly lucky or open up a lot of loot boxes.

Heirloom after 500 Apex Packs

To make sure everyone can get an Heirloom without spending any money, Respawn has ensured that you cannot open 500 packs without getting any heirloom shards.

According to Respawn: “A player cannot open more than 500 Apex Packs (excludes Collection Event Packs) without receiving Heirloom Shards (assuming the player does not own all of the available Heirloom Sets and Prestige Skins). Once a player owns all of the Heirloom Sets and Prestige Skins, the player will not be eligible for this bonus until more Heirloom Sets or Prestige Skins are added to the game.”
