The next Apex Legends heirloom might be for Crypto according to leaks on Twitter. While Wattson is next in line to receive the next melee weapon, it looks like Crypto will be getting preference instead by Respawn Entertainment. The next Apex Legends Heirloom will be a “jikdo” according to leaks, which is a Korean sword. Crypto is a hacker from Korea and the theme of the next Apex Legends heirloom fits perfectly.
Leaks Surrounding The Next Apex Legends Heirloom
The leaks revealing the next Apex Legends heirloom was revealed by Biast12. He is one of the most reliable dataminers in the Apex Legends community who revealed information on Olympus and Town Takeover events. He revealed that the next heirloom is likely to be a “jikdo” for Crypto. “Jikdo” is a type of Korean sword that is used for combat. There is no official confirmation from Respawn Entertainment just yet and it is possible that one of the other Legends may get their heirloom first.
How to Get The Next Apex Legends Heirloom?
There are two ways to get the next Apex Legends heirloom for Crypto. He will have his own event in the upcoming season which will allow you to purchase it by unlocking all event items. Here are some quick numbers to help you decide if the heirloom is worth it or not:
- Cost of 24 Apex Event Packs (guaranteed heirloom): 16800 Apex Coins
- Cost of two special bundles: 7500 Apex Coins
- Apex Coins + Price of 12 Bundles: 15900 Apex Coins
- EA Play Subscription: 10% Discount on Apex Coins
For each Epic or Legendary you craft using crafting materials, you will have to purchase one less event pack.
The cheapest way to get the bundle is to craft as many Epic items as possible and then purchase the remaining packs depending on how many items you need. The special bundles include one skin each and cost a total of 7500 Apex coins which lets you save a total of 900 Apex Coins. Getting an EA Play subscription will allow you to get a 10% discount on your coin purchases which can bring down the cost of getting the heirloom significantly.
The alternative to purchasing the event packs is to open normal Apex Packs which cost 100 Apex coins each and get the next Apex Legends heirloom. Unless you are incredibly lucky, the “pity timer” for 150 heirloom shards is 500 Apex packs. If you are close to 500 Apex packs opened on your account and do not have an heirloom yet, you can purchase the remaining packs to unlock the heirloom. It can be a much cheaper alternative.
