Apex Legends fan designs the perfect Mirage Heirloom

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.

It’s almost that time of year again, and Apex Legends’ second holiday season is about to get into full swing. Holo-Day Bash is set to return for 2020, with all new skins, and a rerun of the Winter Express LTM.

To keep up with the yearly festivities, the first event of Apex Legends Season 7 will be holiday-themed – this we know thanks to some badges that have already confirmed the 2020 Holo-day bash ahead of an official announcement from Respawn.

The exact same thing happened with this year’s Fight or Fright event, for Halloween, which was also revealed early due to in-game badges that couldn’t be unlocked yet.

So, if you’re wondering when Holo-day Bash 2020 starts and ends, what kind of cosmetics will be available, and what mode to expect, here’s everything we know so far.

When is Holo-Day Bash 2020 in Apex Legends?

The Holo-Day bash will start on December 1, and run through until January 4.

Holo-Day Bash 2020 update time

The update is expected to go live at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM GMT. There’s no patch to come with it, so there won’t be any big downloads to worry about.

Badges for Holo-Day Bash 2020 are already visible in Apex Legends.

Unlike last year though, this is not a Collection event. Instead, like Fight or Fright, Holo-Day Bash 2020 is just a Themed event. That means there won’t be a new Heirloom to unlock, whereas last year,  Pathfinder’s boxing gloves could be unlocked by completing the collection.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020 trailer

On November 24, Respawn Entertainment revealed a brand new trailer for the event.

Just because it’s not a collection event though, doesn’t mean there won’t be new skins and cosmetics to get your hands on. The trailer showed off nine in total, from what we could see.

These skins will be available in bundles in the Item Shop from December 1, seen below.

There’s also an event prize tracker, which you will be able to complete through challenges.

Winter Express LTM

Speaking of challenges, you’ll want to complete these in the “new-and-improved” Winter Express LTM.

For those who didn’t play last year, Winter Express takes place on World’s Edge, with Mirage as the game announcer. The objective is to win control of the train over three rounds. And there’s no loot – instead, Legends are given preset loadouts.

On the event, they said in a blog post: “This year, when your squad respawns after a round has finished, you will spawn on your own supply ship as it follows the train. From here, your squad will be able to survey the battlefield and skydive into combat as the train arrives at its next station and the objective unlocks. The squad that won the previous round will respawn directly on the train.

Respawn Hover Tanks

In the trailer, new Respawn Hover Tanks could also be seen, seen below.

These will follow along with the train, and your team will respawn and jump from these back down into the action at the start of each round – unless you won the previous round, in which case, you’ll start on the train.
