Apex Legends fan brings Mirage’s Too Much Witt heirloom to life

An Apex Legends fan managed to recreate Mirage’s ‘Too Much Witt’ heirloom with the help of the game’s files to perfectly shape a trophy of the Holographic Trickster.

In June’s ‘Lost Treasures Collection’ event, Respawn introduced the entirely-appropriate heirloom that awarded Mirage a trophy awarded to the “Best Competitor in a Battle Royale – Based on skill, but mostly looks.”

Fans and Mirage mains alike agreed that the studio created the perfect melee skin for the Legend – although the heirloom might have been a bit too perfect for some people, seeing how the Apex game files are now being used to make the trophy a reality.

Getting a bit creative with a 3D printer, user ‘IAmDelph’ showed off the finished product depicting a crowned-Mirage standing proudly on the person’s desk.

According to the user, the proportions scaled the base model found in Apex Legends’ files to 65% of it’s size. This translated to a statue just about double the height of a mug seen positioned next to the trophy.

The details and flair of the in-game version shows all the intricate designs in Mirage’s suit and headwear. Though some of that is lost in translation to the final printed product, people interested in replicating the heirloom will hardly care since they’ll have their very own Mirage trophy to tout.

“Mirage heirloom ripped from the game files and modified by myself,” IAmDelph said. Delph created files for it to be made half with gold material and the other part with wood, or as a single piece to easily print out.

The creation even caught the eye of Character Artist Jeremy Jodoin, who goes by ‘RSPN_Jeremy on Reddit, and was ecstatic to see one of his designs come to life.

“Oh dude this is so cool!” Jodoin said. “I think this is the first time any of my models have been printed, it’s an honor good sir may it stand proudly on your desk/shelf!”

Both fans and devs were impressed with IAmDelph’s initiative and could definitely lead to more Mirage mains recreating the Apex Legends heirloom trophy for themselves in the future.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
