Heirlooms are some of the most popular and sought after items in Apex Legends, and one fan has created the perfect melee weapon for Mirage to show off his cocky and attention-seeking personality.
Mirage is known as the “Holographic Trickster,” and according to lore from Respawn Entertainment, perfected the art of “fooling around to get attention” in his youth as the youngest of four brothers.
Mirage is certainly a big fan of himself, with the master of technology regularly telling his opponents that “both” of him are better than them, a nod to his holographic capabilities that send out replicas of himself to confuse enemies.
With anyone who plays Apex Legends aware of Mirage’s vain personality, one clever fan has come up with a way to turn that into a special in-game item, and something that the 30-year-old would surely love to carry around with him as he battles in World’s End.
Reddit user /u/victorqnguyen shared his idea on the game’s official subreddit, which shows a comb for Mirage to make sure his hair is always in place, and a hand-held mirror so he can look at himself no matter where he is on the map.
Unsurprisingly, many fans of the game were immediately on board, with one imagining what it would be like to get “chased around by a guy wielding a mirror, and talking about how much better he is than you.”
Others called it “perfect” and “so good,” while one wise-cracking user suggested it be called a “hairloom” instead of an heirloom.
Heirlooms are ultra-rare sets of cosmetics in Apex Legends, and cannot be crafted or purchased. Instead, players can only get their hands on them by opening Apex Packs, with less than a 1% chance of the item appearing.
So far, only three Legends have received these special items, Wraith, Bloodhound, and Lifeline, but should Mirrage ever get his hands on a mirror in-game, he might find himself losing matches because he just can’t stop looking at himself.
