There are currently 10 Heirlooms in Apex Legends. These ultra-rare items are dropped from 1 in every 500 packs, with a guaranteed drop in exactly 500 packs. You'll get three sets of Heirloom Shards which can be used to unlock the Heirloom of your choice.

You can also unlock Heirlooms via Collection Events. Collection Events cost around $170 for all 24 packs required to unlock a character's Heirloom set. That makes it significantly cheaper than purchasing 500 Apex Packs, but it's still quite a lot of money. Here's everything you need to know about Apex Heirlooms.

Updated October 25, 2021, by Harry Alston: We're updating this list to include the new Heirlooms added to the game. We're also cleaning up the content to include more stats about what you actually have to do (how much money you need to spend) to unlock the Shards.


How To Get Heirlooms In Apex Legends

Apex Heirloom set

Each Heirloom has to be unlocked with Heirloom shards. Each Heirloom costs 150 Heirloom Shards, which unlock from one Heirloom pack.

Now, how do you get your hands on Heirloom Shards? This is the part that might be a little disappointing.

  • You could get those shards out of every Apex Pack, but the chances are less than 1%.
  • But before you lapse into state despair, you should keep in mind that after opening 499 Apex packs without any Heirloom Shards, then pack number 500 is absolutely guaranteed to give you 150 Heirloom Shards.
  • You can use the shards to unlock whichever Heirloom you want.

It is worth mentioning that each Collection Event brings with itself a new Heirloom Set. You have to collect all the 24 items in the event’s collection set to gain access to the Heirloom, which is going to cost you a fortune.

What Are Heirlooms In Apex Legends

Apex Legends Heirlooms

If you can get your hands on one of these Heirlooms, they are going to replace the character's unarmed fist animation and melee attack. Instead of those unbecoming fists, you are going to have a really satisfying item in your hand, brandishing it at the enemies every chance you get.

The best cosmetic item to show off in Apex Legends is undoubtedly an Heirloom, precisely because not many people have one. They're also pretty expensive. You might get lucky and pack an Heirloom from a regular Season Pass pack or Event pack, but the odds are pretty slim.

Apex Legends Heirloom Sets

Wraith’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Fearless

Melee Weapon Skin: Kunai

Intro Quip: “You know what I look like – come find me.”

Wraith Melee Weapon Skin

Wraith's knife is the OG Apex Heirloom, i.e the first one ever released. It is a black kunai with edges that glow and sparkle in purple. This kunai matches Wraith’s ninja theme.

You should see how it makes little portals appear every time you perform a melee attack with it. Even looking at the Kunai using the inspection button is strangely satisfying. Wraith purportedly obtained the Kunai from an alternate version of herself. Another fun fact about the Heirloom is that it has “QUIETO” written on it, which translates to “Quiet” or “Still."

  • This set has been in the game since its release.

Bloodhound's Heirloom

Banner Pose: Glory Hound

Melee Weapon Skin: Raven’s Bite

Intro Quip: “I honor those who’ve risen, not those who’ve fallen.”

Bloudhound Melee Weapon Skin

Raven’s Bite is a horrifying axe with raven detailing and a glowing red edge, which Bloodhound allegedly got from their uncle Arthur. We have to say it reminds us of the axes you could only find in horror movies, with the glowing red edge reminding you of blood.

This color scheme is believed to represent the utmost level of violence and hostility, and the axe just takes that to a whole new level. All in all, it further engenders a feeling of fear in the enemies, especially if they see a Bloodhound chasing them with his Raven’s Bite out after having activated his Ultimate ability!

  • This set was released during the Iron Crown Collection Event.

Lifeline’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Shock Sticks

Melee Weapon Skin: Shock Sticks

Intro Quip: “Check yo self – or wreck yo self. (chuckle)”

Lifeline Melee Weapon Skin

A pair of defibrillator drumsticks, Shock Sticks are not nearly as frightening as the previous two. One could say, however, that they are cute and have a pretty slick running and movement animation.

It is generally designed to match Lifeline’s less hostile air. She is a medic after all, and it is only right that she gets an Heirloom that reflects her affectionate personality rather than a frightening weapon. It is, nevertheless, an Heirloom and Lifeline mains would die for it.

  • This set was made available during the Fight or Fright Collection event.

Pathfinder’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Lights Out

Melee Weapon Skin: Boxing Gloves

Intro Quip: “Did you see how great I was? I did all kinds of really amazing moves… are you listening?”

Pathfinder Melee Weapon Skin

The boxing gloves are by far the most harmless-looking Heirloom in the game. They also have little screens on them to display Pathfinder’s emotions, matching the screen in his chest. It also matches the blue theme in the Fight Night Boxing Ring in the Olympus map.

  • This set was released during the Holo-Day Bash Collection Event.

Octane’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Spin and Flick

Melee Weapon Skin: Butterfly Knife

Intro Quip: “Run fast. Hit fast. Win fast”

Octane Melee Weapon Skin

Octane’s Heirloom is a butterfly knife with his signature stim all over it. You could also notice a needle that he could inject into his body. It also matches the green theme noticeable in his stims and the trail he leaves behind after using one.

  • This set was made available during the System Override Collection Event.

Mirage’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: You Really Love Me

Melee Weapon Skin: Too Much Witt

Intro Quip: ”Excited to see you all in the ring. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of ‘mes’ to go around.”

Mirage Melee Weapon Skin

This particular Heirloom is purely designed to make you laugh. It is just a golden trophy of Mirage for “Best competitor in a Battle Royale – Based on skill but mostly looks.” It makes a reference to the live performance that took place in The Game Awards 2019.

  • This Set came out with the Lost Treasures Collection Event.

Caustic’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Hammer Time

Melee Weapon Skin: Death hammer

Intro Quip: “I look forward to getting my hands on you.”

Caustic Melee Weapon Skin

Caustic’s Heirloom is a hammer with a skull at the back equipped with Nox gas. This Heirloom has a different air of terror to it. Just imagine suffocating in his gas and getting hit in the head with a heavy scary hammer as a finishing move. That should certainly send waves of fear down your spine.

  • This set was made available during the Aftermarket Collection Event.

Gibraltar’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: Like a Rock

Melee Weapon Skin: War Club

Intro Quip: “When this is over, they’ll all know the name ‘Gibraltar.’”

Gibraltar Melee Weapon Skin

Matching Gibraltar’s gigantic stature, War Club is a hatchet that emits sparks and glows with heat. The idea behind this Heirloom is just to mimic Gibraltar in being clunky, even down to the clink it makes upon hitting the enemies. He brandishes it around in a most arrogant way while pressing the button on it that stokes the flames coming out of it.

  • This set was released when the Fright Night Collection Event came out.

Bangalore’s Heirloom

Banner Pose: No gun, No Problem

Melee Weapon Skin: Cold Steel

Intro Quip: “Hope you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty.”

Bangalore Melee Weapon Skin

Opinions on this Heirloom might be subjective, but we would probably deem it the most mundane Heirloom among all. The developers kept Bangalore waiting since the game's launch to give her a rather ordinary Pilot’s knife. Most Bangalore mains were disappointed with the Heirloom when it came out as it is just not exciting enough.

  • This set became available with the Chaos Theory Collection Event.

Revenant's Heirloom

Banner Pose: No Escape

Weapon Skin: Dead Man's Curve

Intro Quip: "You don't want to see this up close, skin bag."

Not only has Revenant dominated the meta for the past few seasons, he also gets his hands on one of the coolest-looking Heirlooms in the game. This Reaper's scythe suits him perfectly.

  • This Heirloom was available during the Genesis Collection Event.

Rampart's Heirloom

Banner Pose: Wrench In Your Plan

Weapon Skin: Problem Solver

Intro Quip: "I make things by hand, and kill things by hand."

Rampart might not be the most well-used legend in Apex Legends, but she has her fans. Her Rampart heirloom is a handy, trusty, reliable wrench, perfect for clubbing bad guys over the head.

  • This Heirloom was available during the Evolution Collection Event.
