Mirage looks set to be the next Apex Legends character to get a limited-edition Heirloom melee weapon in Season 5, according to new datamined leaks.

Loba may be the new kid on block in Season 5, but Fortune’s Favor has been all about Mirage. The Holographic Trickster got a rework in the battle royale’s May 12 patch, and now it looks like he’s in line to get an heirloom next too.

Heirlooms are some of the rarest collectibles in Apex Legends. The battle royale’s cosmetic melee weapons drop from Apex Packs. They tell the backstories of Respawn’s ever-expanding cast of heroes and villains.

So far, launch legends Wraith, Bloodhound, Pathfinder, and Lifeline have been bestowed with the limited-edition items. Season 1 addition Octane also jumped the queue ⁠— fitting well with his character ⁠— to get an Heirloom too.

According to popular code-dipper ILootGames, Apex’s smooth-talking, recently-buffed hero Mirage would be the next legend to receive an Heirloom. Not only that, but the leaked code seems to point to exactly what his item will be.

Mirage’s rumored Apex Legends Season 5 heirloom seems right up the Holographic Trickster’s alley.

There were speculations the Holographic Trickster’s Heirloom would be something relating to his backstory. One fan suggested Elliott Witt would wield a mirror, while another believed he would battle with a cooked pork chop.

Unfortunately, neither of those amusing options will make it into the game, by the looks of things. Mirage’s Heirloom does still seem to fit though. According to leakers Shrugtal and Biast12, he could be wielding a mini-sized statue of himself.

“Well… check out our next Heirloom,” another data miner, iLootGames said, revealing the string related to the cosmetic: “MELEE_SKIN_MIRAGE_STATUE_NAME”. The leak does seem to lock in Mirage as the next legend to get a special melee weapon.

This leak does appear to blow holes in the theories Revenant ⁠⁠— who has a voiceline tied to a potential Heirloom item ⁠— and Crypto⁠— who has animations relating to his Data Knife in the code ⁠— would be next out of the gates for Heirlooms.

With any leaks, however, they can be taken with a grain of salt. For now, only Respawn knows exactly who will be getting the limited-edition weapons. It does, however, look like there’s a fair few planned for Season 5 and beyond.

Season 8 is on the horizon and players are gearing up for all the new content Respawn has in store for them. With an overhaul to Kings Canyon and a brand new Legend being added to the roster, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Of course, new content is all well and good but what’s the point if you can’t look good while taking out your enemies. Well, as always, Respawn has revealed a range of new cosmetics set to arrive in the new season.

Apex’s Season 8 gameplay trailer, released on January 26, gives us a look at the brand new cosmetics we can expect to pick up at the start of February.

Bangalore – Radical Action (Legendary)

Season 8 is going to bring Bangalore an incredible Legendary skin with a radical-style theme. This is definitely going to be a must-have for any Bangalore mains at the beginning of February.

Here’s how Loba’s new skin shapes up in Season 8.

30-30 Repeater skin

Season 8’s new weapon is arriving with a bang with a stylish blue and golden weapon skin. If you’re a fan of the Repeater’s gunplay when it releases, this is a must-buy skin.

We expect this will be a Legendary skin.

Flatline skin

The Flatline will be receiving a new weapon skin for Season 8 and it’s fair to say it makes the weapon look incredibly deadly. The black spikes paired with the red coloration makes for an amazing skin design.

Longbow DMR skin (Legendary)

With reactive red effects radiating from this skin when the gun is shot, it’s obvious this is going to be a fan-favorite for players who are experienced with the DMR. You’ll have to rank up the battle pass to the very top for this one though.

Knowing Respawn, there’s bound to be a bunch more cosmetics revealed to players at the release of Season 8 on February 2. Hopefully, you’ve saved up some crafting metals as these new skins are not to be missed out on.

If any new cosmetics are revealed before the release of Season 8, we’ll update this article with all the latest.
