After months of speculation, an Apex Legends leak has finally given players their first look at what appears to be Crypto’s Heirloom which certainly fits his theme.

When it comes to collectibles in Apex Legends, none are more rare or sought-after than the Legend-specific Heirlooms.

These weapons are released alongside collection events and are only available for a short period of time. After that, the only way to get one is through opening packs at a 1 in 500 drop rate — which doesn’t exactly make them easy to obtain.

Wattson was the most recent character to receive one of these rare items, with her Energy Reader releasing on December 8 with the Raiders Collection event.

Now, leaks seem to have given players their first look at the next Heirloom coming to the game, belonging to Crypto, the Surveillance Expert.

Crypto’s Jikdo Heirloom leaked in Apex Legends

Apex Legends cosmetic researcher KranRindo on Twitter has given the community the best look at Crypto’s Heirloom so far, which comes in the form of a Korean Jikdo sword.

The weapon is able to break down, unlocking to eventually release a USB out of the bottom like a Russian nesting doll — at least, according to KranRindo’s animation.

Combined with the knowledge that the blade folds out when the Surveillance Expert unsheathes the weapon from earlier leaks, it definitely has a futuristic feel to it that’s perfect for Crypto.

What we haven’t seen yet from leaks is a full showcase of all the Heirloom’s animations, so we may have to wait for when the weapon is actually released to see those.

Keep in mind, this tweet is only a leak and should be taken with a grain of salt as it’s possible Respawn has changed the design since this was recorded.

However, this version of Crypto’s Heirloom looks smoother than any we’ve seen so far, which could be a sign the weapon is arriving fairly soon.

For now, all we can do is keep an eye out for any more leaks and potentially even an official announcement at some point in the new year.
