Apex Legends players frequently try to unlock rare Heirlooms for their character, but these are often extremely costly. Luckily, there are ways to save money while getting your hands on these cosmetic items.
Heirlooms are unique melee weapons that are suited to specific characters, and there nine of them in Apex Legends currently. Revenant’s “Dead Man’s Curve” Scythe in the Genesis Collection Event was the latest one.
These are particularly difficult to get your hands on as they’re the rarest cosmetics in Apex Legends. However, there are a few ways for you to get past the exceedingly high costs while unlocking Heirlooms.
How to get cheap Apex Legends Heirlooms
You can unlock Heirlooms by collecting shards, purchasing 500 packs, or by playing through an Apex Legends Collection Event. Once you’ve collected 24 items in the event, you’ll use the packs to get the cosmetic.
However, each pack will set you back 700 Apex Coins, and you’ll need to spend around $160 if you want to ensure that you get your hands on an Heirloom. There a few different approaches that you can take to save money.
Apex Legends Event bundles
If you want to save up and ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth, then you should purchase event bundles, rather than individual packs. The Genesis Collection Event has brought a couple of these.
The Loba Petty Thief and Crypto Inconspicuous bundles will not only grant you some new skins, but a total of 10 event packs as well. So rather than having to purchase 24 packs, you’ll just need 14 more.
EA Play discounts
Players that have EA Play receive 10% off for in-game purchases. You can use this to your advantage by getting a $5 subscription to to this service.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Visit the EA Play website
- Click “Join now”
- Select your preferred platform to link your account (Xbox, PlayStation, Steam, Origin)
- Pick a monthly or annual plan and hit “buy”
- Login to your platform account and fill in your details
This will complete the process, and you will now save 10% on Apex Packs and bundles. While you’ll need to spend money on the subscription, it’ll be worth it for all that you save in the long-run.
Use your Apex Legends Crafting metals
Using any Crafting metals that you have will further reduce the cost of unlocking Heirlooms. The price varies, depending upon the amount of materials that you have. You’ll be able to get the Heirloom for free with 38,400 of them.
However, that’s an extremely high amount, and you’ll most likely still have to pay a certain amount. Even with a few thousand Crafting Metals, the overall price will come out at over $100.
Of course, there’s really no need to invest that much if you want don’t want to. You can try your luck with the in-game Apex Packs. You’re guaranteed to get shards after opening 500 of these packs.
There ways for you to check how close you are to an Heirloom in Apex Legends. You can try out the options above if you’re willing to pay a certain amount, and these will be cheaper than purchasing 24 event packs.

Apex Legends Ranked: How does rank reset work?
For those wondering how Apex Legends rank reset works in ranked splits, we’ve got all the details covered for you.
Apex Legends has a great ranked system that is split over two periods, for those unsure as to how your rank is reset over these periods, here’s how it works.
Apex Legends has a great rank system that is both easy to understand and extremely addictive. For those who want a more competitive experience and a way to gauge their own skill, Ranked Leagues is the place to be.
With Season 13 bringing major changes to Ranked Leagues, with the 13.1 patch making additional tweaks, players both old and new might want a quick reminder of how the rank reset works after the split.
Apex Legends Season 13’s first ranked split was played on Storm Point, with the second bringing World’s Edge back to the ranked mode after the split occurred on June 28.
For more information on Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, check out our article on the most popular Legends to get a head start. Now, Let’s get into exactly how Apex Legends rank reset works.
How does rank reset work in Apex Legends?
Since Apex Legends Season 3, Respawn has split the ranked season into two halves, each spanning one and half months.
At the end of the first split, players will experience a “soft reset” for the second half of the ranked season, which sees their rank reduced by 4 divisions.
That means if you ended the first split in Gold II, you will see an Apex Legends rank reset to Silver II when the second ranked split begins.
Apex Predators, which is the players in the top rank, will be reset to Diamond IV, so be wary at the start of the split if you make your way to Diamond fast, you’ll be up against some tough competition.
That’s all on how rank reset works in Apex Legends Ranked Leagues. For more, check out what the devs said about potential Gold Knockdown Shield changes.

Apex Legends: Lifeline’s Clinic teases Kings Canyon & new moon BR map
Lifeline’s Clinic on Olympus for Apex Legends Season 13 possesses easter eggs which hint at Kings Canyon updates and a new BR map.
An easter egg found on Apex Legends’ brand-new Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus may hint at map changes to Kings Canyon and a new moon-themed BR map.
As well as some buffs, Lifeline got her very own POI on Olympus called the Clinic, which definitely holds a few secrets. Some players in the Apex Legends community have discovered some easter eggs in the new POI which may be hinting at both Kings Canyon changes and the next BR map.
Lifeline’s new Town Takeover on Olympus brings new life to the northeastern side of the map, sitting just behind the Gardens POI. Since 1.98 patch dropped on June 21, players have been getting to grips with this new POI and all it has to offer.
Apex Legends content creator kralrindo pointed out some interesting magazines that can be found in the POI, one of which the headline states “Salvage operation complete…say hello to King’s Canyon’s New Relic.”

This is of course hinting at the King’s Canyon POI Salvage, which has been attempting to clean up the collapse of Skull Town since Season 5. This magazine headline is clearly hinting at a change to the POI, as the salvage operation has been complete, and a new relic is now in its place.
It’s unclear what Salvage is going to be replaced with, but the “new relic” could be salvaged parts of Skull Town, which possessed a massive skeleton of an ancient creature. We’ll likely find out when more is revealed for Season 14, which is when the map will return.
Further, someone in the comments noticed another easter egg in the same magazine, as just above the Salvage story it reads: “Boreas News…CRC in a deadlock about the moon’s future.”
Boreas is Seer’s home planet, and many believe this headline is just a reference to the destroyed moon in the skybox of the Arenas map Encore.
We aren’t set for a new battle royale map until Season 15, and that’s only if the current trend of a new battle royale map releasing every four seasons is correct. With that being said, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a teaser this earlier on.
We’ll have to wait and see if any more teasers can back up the magazine headlines, but for now, check out the Apex Legends leaks that are suggesting a level cap increase is on its way.

Apex Legends Season 13 popularity plummets after being most streamed game
Despite the new content, Apex Legends Season 13 has seen a huge decline in popularity, setting new lows for the battle royale.
Apex Legends have taken a massive decline in popularity for Season 13, as Twitch views for the game have fallen greatly.
Despite new content and being crowned the most streamed game on Twitch at the start of the season, the Apex Legends community has noticed a huge decline in the popularity of the game.
Apex Legends content creator Garret has noticed a severe decline in Twitch views for Apex Legends since the launch of Season 13. It’s normal to see spikes in Twitch views and player count when a new season drops, but maintaining high numbers throughout the season is more telling.
According to a graph posted by Garret on Twitter, Twitch views for Apex Legends are down by “more than 50% since last season,” showing just how much the popularity of the game has fallen.
However, Garret feels it could have something to do with the ranked changes for Season 13, which have caused a lot of controversy among the player base: “Upon further thought I wouldn’t be surprised if ranked changes had a hand in the view drop lol.”
While the player base is maintaining good numbers for Apex Legends Season 13, it’s not a great sign to see the Twitch views drop this far, especially when we’re only halfway through the season.
