A leaked trailer for Apex Legends' upcoming Iron Crown event has seemingly revealed the Heirloom item for Bloodhound.
On August 6, Respawn Entertainment revealed that they would be launching another limited-time mode in Apex Legends called the Iron Crown Collection Event. In the days following, the developers showcased a number of new skin for Pathfinder, Bloodhound, and Wraith - and teased that more was to come.
Yet, in the hours ahead of the event’s launch on August 13, an Nvidia Twitter account leaked the full pre-event trailer that displayed some brand new locations, further cosmetics, and revealed a double XP weekend.
However, eagle-eyed fans noticed that another cosmetic may have been displayed in plain sight too.
Just slightly after the minute mark, and as the trailer comes to an end, Bloodhound is given a few close-up moments where the character is considering jumping off a rooftop and wiping out those Legends below.
In their right-hand, a brand-new axe can see sporting an eagle-like scowl with red outlines. The trailer runs for a few more seconds before showing Bloodhound taking that leap of faith and seemingly being able to pummel those legends below as if it does some environmental damage with an area of destruction.
Unlike other aspects of the trailer, the axe is not labeled as a new heirloom but considering the time given to it in such an important video, it seems almost certain that it is.
If so, it would mark the second Heirloom set added to the game behind the initial set for Wraith. These Heirlooms are only available in Apex Packs and players have a less than 1% chance of being able to bag them with each pack opening.
Of course, so you don’t lose all your cash searching for the ultra-rare cosmetic items, Respawn implemented a system that guarantees players will receive an Heirloom within one of their first 500 packs.
Adding another into the game could certainly shake that system up, but it remains to be seen as to what the developers decide to do.
