Apex Legends player defies the odds by receiving Heirloom Shards in back-to-back packs

An Apex Legends player shows off their luck as they open two Apex Packs back-to-back with the same astonishing result.

Apex Legends’ Heirloom cosmetic items are the rarest and most illustrious item in the game. However, they may not be to one lucky player.

Many OG Apex Legends players will have an Heirloom in Season 11, having played the game through multiple seasons. Some of the new players may not even know what an Heirloom is.

These Legend melee items are the most sought-after cosmetics in the game, with a very slim chance to receive Heirloom Shards in a pack. Some players who have been around since Season 1 are lacking an Heirloom, perhaps waiting for the next Collection Event to obtain one.

Having said that, one lucky player seems to have defied the odds.

In order to get an Heirloom, you either have to get lucky, or purchase one in a Collection Event. With Season 11’s Collection Event still to come, players have an opportunity to get what could be Wattson’s Heirloom according to leaks.

The thing about purchasing Heirlooms in the Collection Events is that you can’t decide which one you get. When you get Heirloom Shards in a pack you get the freedom to pick from the bunch. Currently, there are 11 Heirlooms in the game.

One lucky player managed to beat the 1 in 500 chance of receiving Heirloom Shards, getting them in back-to-back packs, which is truly outrageous.

Back-to-back Heirlooms

Reddit user Moja11122233 is the lucky player responsible for beating these odds. They put up a post in the Apex Legends subreddit showing off their back-to-back Heirloom Shard packs.

As you can tell by the player’s reaction, this is pretty crazy and may also be their first Heirloom Shards. After the first set of shards, the player says “we finally got it, boys, we finally did it,” suggesting it is indeed the first time they have obtained Heirloom Shards.

The player then opens up another pack straight after, and you better believe they got the same result. Believing it’s a “glitch,” the reaction is of disbelief, not actually believing it until they check the Heirloom counter.

The chances of receiving two back to back is extremely slim. The feat even drew a reaction from one of the game’s developers: “cool now im freakin jealous and ive had all the ‘looms since wombs.”

What is quite suspicious though is that the second pack of Heirloom Shards they received didn’t take away their pack count. They opened the pack with only two left, and after getting the shards for the second time, they still have two left.

Perhaps this is some sort of glitch and will be looked into by the devs. One thing is for sure though, this player was truly blessed and is no doubt enjoying the rewards.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.

Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.
