Respawn design director Jason McCord has confirmed that each of the Apex Legends’ characters will be receiving their own Heirlooms and revealed an update on Crpyto’s ultra-rare cosmetic set.

Since the release of Apex Legends in 2019, players have been customizing their favorite characters with some of the incredible cosmetic items that are available to purchase or unlock in the battle royale.

There are many unique cosmetics such as skins and charms for players to collect, however, ultra-rare Heirloom sets are by far the hardest to find in-game.

What are heirlooms in Apex Legends?

Unlike many of the other character and weapon skins, Heirloom’s are specifically based around certain Legend and their lore, which include a melee weapon skin, a banner pose, and an intro quip.

While only six of the thirteen Legends have an Heirloom set of their own, fans have been calling on Respawn to add more so that they can finally equip their favorite Legend with some of these items.

After one Apex Legends fan asked Respawn dev Jason McCord if Crypto would be next to receive an Heirloom set, the design director provided a brief hint on which Legends to expect going forward.

McCord explained that it was quite likely all Legends would get their own Heirloom set “eventually” but with new characters apparently being released each season it might take a while for them to catch up.

“I bet all legends get their heirlooms eventually…but I know the next 2 legends planned. Don’t wait,” he responded, suggesting that Crypto’s ultra-rare cosmetic set could also be quite a while away.

Fellow Respawn dev Josh Medina also chimed in with a response, further confirming that there were no immediate plans to release an Heirloom for the Surveillance Expert.

While it is unclear which Legends might be next to receive these unique item sets, it appears as if only two Heirlooms are currently planned for the near future, with both of them, potentially, coming at once.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
