The next Heirloom Set to be released in Apex Legends may have already been leaked by data-miners, and it could be for the Pathfinder Legend.

Heirlooms are sets of cosmetics in Apex Legends that contain three items: an Intro Quip, Banner Pose, and Melee Weapon Skin.

They are extremely difficult and costly to obtain, making them the rarest cosmetics in the game, and are currently only available for three Legends – Wraith, Bloodhound, and Lifeline.

However, according to prominent Apex data-miner ‘Shrugtal,’ a fourth set could soon be on its way, and it would be for the Pathfinder.

An image he dug up from the game files in the back-end show the Heirloom to be a pair of brightly-colored boxing gloves that feature a smiley face and the word “POW!”

If this leak is legitimate, then there are several signs that point to it indeed being for the Pathfinder. For one, the overall design of the melee skin is very robotic, which would match the Legend since it itself is a robot.

Secondly, the smiley face located on the back of the hands is very similar to the one that’s usually shown on the Pathfinder’s chest display, and the word “POW!” falls in line with its usually enthusiastic and upbeat style of dialogue. 

Respawn EntertainmentThe smiley face on Pathfinder’s chest display looks a lot like the one found on the leaked Heirloom melee skin.

When would Pathfinder’s Heirloom set get released?

There is no definitive information available yet about the possible release date for this Heirloom, but we can look back at the release of the past two sets to try and figure out when the next one would become available 

The Bloodhound’s Heirloom was released on August 13, at the start of the Iron Crown event, while Lifeline’s was released nearly two months later on October 15, which was the first day of the Fight or Fright event.

If this two month gap pattern follows, then Pathfinder’s set would become available sometime around December 13-15, which actually makes a lot of sense since the game’s winter event is rumored to be kicking off around that time and the two previous Heirlooms mentioned above were both released on the first day of their respective events. 

While all of this may be very exciting for those who play Pathfinder as their main Legend or are fans of collecting rare cosmetic items, it’s important to keep in mind that all of this information is based on a leak and speculation, so none of it will be official until Respawn Entertainment and EA themselves announce it.

That said, we will continue to monitor for more details about this Heirloom set as we move closer to the winter season, and we will bring you the latest info as soon as it becomes available.

Apex Legends leak reveals ranked solos and more game modes in the works

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
