The Heirlooms in Apex Legends are very popular 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 the recent addition of Prestige 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 them. 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?
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.

What do Heirlooms do in Apex Legends?
Heirlooms are strictly cosmetic items that are specific to Legends that 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.
