An Apex Legends data miner believes they may have uncovered unreleased voice lines that suggest that Revenant will be the next character to receive an Heirloom item. 

Since Apex Legends launched, fans of the battle royale have been trying to collect incredibly rare items so that they stand out from the crowd. Aside from skins and other cosmetics, the rarest items come in the form of Heirlooms.

These Heirloom sets were previously confined to Apex Packs – and you were guaranteed to get one after you opened 500 packs, if you hadn’t got one already. But, they’re made a little easier to get with the introduction of shards. As the hype for Season 5 is growing and fans are guessing which character will be given the next heirloom set, it appears as if some have already found the answer.

Reddit user rikbiswas742 claimed to have uncovered a long list of in-game voice lines for Revenant that all have the same ‘killed an enemy with an Heirloom’ description. 

In the quick clips that are played, the Synthetic Nightmare can be heard repeating quips like “spilled blood” and “I enjoyed every moment of that” as well as an even more sinister-sounding “I like the way they scream.”

Obviously, these sound like lines that Revenant would call out after getting a kill, but there isn’t a noise for equipping the heirloom like there is with Wraith’s Kunai or Pathfinder’s boxing gloves.

Some earlier leaks had suggested that Crypto would be the character to receive an Heirloom next, though these voice lines might just mean the end of those hopes. Although, it’s likely Respawn are working on multiple heirloom ideas at the same time.

Fans have speculated that should Revenant be the one to get an Heirloom, the glass shard in his neck, or the razor that he was shaving himself with in the season four trailer, would be perfect and fit the current crop of melee weapons.

However, as with any Apex leak, it is worth taking this with a pinch of salt until season five goes live and Respawn themselves confirm the next heirloom.

Players don’t have all that long to wait until that point anyway, as the next season is set to get underway on Tuesday, May 12.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
