Apex Legends Season 8 Anniversary Event

Apex Legends Season 8 is finally here, and the Anniversary Collection will bring a ton of exciting new content for players. Here’s everything that we know so far about the event, including the release date.

Collection Events have been a major Apex Legends tradition since the game first launched, and the one for Season 7, titled Fight Night, gave the developers the perfect opportunity to show off all the content that they had planned for players.

Now that Season 8 is here, we’ll be getting a brand new Collection Event to celebrate the game’s 2 year anniversary on February 9, 2021. We’ll go over every new change that this event will bring to the battle royale.

Apex Legends Anniversary skins

As expected, Season 8 will plenty of brand new Legend and weapons skins, with most of the characters getting an “Anniversary” recolor.

Respawn confirmed that 24 items will be given red and gold recolors so that players have the chance to grab old skins with a classy redesign.

“We’re bringing back 24 fan-favorite items and giving them a fresh look with crimson red and gold touches. If you’ve missed out on a skin you really wanted in the past, now’s the time to snag it, but with a new look that lets others know you were here in the early days of Apex Legends. ”

Locked and Loaded LTM takeover

The event will also add a brand new LTM in the form of the Locked and Loaded takeover mode. This grant you a full loadout of level 1 gear as you land in the battle area, and you’ll have to make do with that while taking on other players.

This loadout includes a Mozambique, White Shotgun Bolt, HCOG Classic Scope, White Evo Shield, White Helmet, White Backpack, White Incap Shield, two Syringes, two Shield Cells, and a stack of shotgun ammo.

You won’t find any Common/White level gear and attachments as loot during the takeover, so this LTM will test you in battle.

Challenges

We will also get a few new challenges that you can complete during the event in order to unlock some awesome new rewards:

  • Get the “Daily Discovery” Nessie Badge by completing 75 Daily Challenges
  • “Respect your elders” and earn the Mozambique Badge by dealing 102,816 Damage (get the reference?)
  • Earn “Time to Win and Stay Alive” with 8 different Legends to get the Smolfinder Badge

You can also earn the “Mozambique Here” Weapon Charm by dishing out 3,333 Damage to your opponents with the Mozambique. You might get this done more easily with the Locked and Loaded takeover.

Apex Legends dataminers have uncovered some interesting code surrounding a new Legend that could arrive in Season 11.

The recent Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event update introduced some pretty exciting new content, from the new Big Maude location on World’s Edge to various buffs and nerfs detailed in the patch notes.

Like any new update, dataminers have a field day as new code enters the game, which they can source and present to the community.

The latest leaks revealed a 3D model for Wattson’s Heirloom and also potentially Season 11‘s Legend.

Although it feels like we have only just received a new Legend with Season 10, Seer, dataminers have already uncovered some information about a future Legend.

The dataminer behind the leaks is GarretLeaks, who has been leaking trustworthy information regarding unreleased content for some time now. Garret was the dataminer behind the Rampart Heirloom, which turned out to be true.

Garret’s latest YouTube video exposes the line of code referencing a Legend that hasn’t been found in the Apex Legends’ code before. Although there is only one line of code, that’s all Garret needs to gain and speculate details about the Legend.

In the video, Garret states that the potential name or codename for this new Legend is “Maali,” and their abilities may also have something to do with providing a “damage boost.”

Garret further states that this would go with what is know about the next Apex Legends map, which is suspected to be a tropical theme, as “Maali” has a tropical ring to it, perhaps due to its similarities with Maui, an Island in Hawaii.

The dataminer speculates that Maali could actually come from this Tropic Island location. It has been a common theme for new maps to drop along with Legends who originate from that area, like Horizon in Season 7 with Olympus.

The code also mentions “damage boost,” which could have something to do with her kit. Perhaps one of her abilities will boost her damage in certain situations.

We’ll have to wait for more information to drop about Maali in the future to know more about their kit. For now, check out our article on the upcoming Halloween event for the battle royale game.

What do Heirlooms do in Apex Legends?

Apex Legends’ Heirlooms are some of the most sought after items in the whole game, but what are they and what do they do?

Published

The Heirlooms in Apex Legends are very popular but rare items that all dedicated players wish to obtain. To understand the demand, let’s get into the details of what they are.

Apex Legends has some pretty cool cosmetics for players to obtain, including Legend and weapon skins. There are plenty of neat cosmetic items that you can use to stylize your weapons and characters.

Heirlooms are the rarest and most prestigious in-game items, and not every Legend has one of these. Let’s go into detail about what they are and what they actually do for you in Apex Legends.

What is an Apex Legend Heirloom?

Revenant Heirloom in Apex Legends

An Heirloom is a Legend-specific melee item that Apex Legends players can purchase with Heirloom Shards, which are obtained in Apex Packs.

The reason Heirlooms are so rare is because there is a 1 in 500 chance of receiving Heirloom Shards in an Apex Pack, and only on your 500th pack are you guaranteed the shards.

Further, Heirlooms usually come out during a Collection Event, where players need to collect every item in the event to receive the new Heirloom. However, these can be very pricey.

To calculate how many Apex Packs you have opened, check out our article on how to track your Heirloom progress.

Heirlooms are strictly cosmetic items that are specific to Legends who currently have them available. They give you new melee animations and sounds, as well as something cool to hold while your weapons are holstered.

These items also have detailed animations when your weapon is holstered, as well as satisfying animations for moving between running, walking, sliding, and crouching.

At the time of writing, Rampart was the latest character to receive an Heirloom in Apex Legends Season 10. The Problem Solver arrived as part of the Evolution Collection Event.

The Collection Event’s update patch also gave data miners the opportunity to sort through the game files, and a leaked 3D model for Wattson’s Heirloom has revealed that the devs might give her one of these items soon.
