Apex Legends Next Heirloom: Season 11 Collection Event Leaked
Apex Legends’ heirlooms are cosmetics that are very rare and can be obtained only from Collection events or from opening hundreds of Apex packs. With Season 11 underway, Apex Legends’ next heirloom is right around the corner along with the Collection event. According to leaks, Wattson and Crypto are in line to get the next heirlooms. While there have been no leaks about what Wattson’s heirloom could be, Crypto is supposed to get a ‘jikdo’ knife soon.
Crypto or Wattson are likely to get the next Apex Legends heirloom
Apex Legends leaker HumanSAS that there is a Crypto-themed weapon sight in the game’s files which is tagged as an heirloom. It is unknown why the sight is tagged as an heirloom as all previous legend-exclusive cosmetics have been melee weapons. Apex Legends has not received any legend-themed sights till date and if the leaks are true, this could be the first of its kind. With Crypto being a recon legend, the possibility of a legend-exclusive sight cannot be completely ruled out.
Previous leaks suggested that he will be getting a Korean ‘jikdo’ weapon. The leak came from Biast12, who has been on point with his Valkyrie leaks for season 9 and it remains to be seen if the leaked combat sword is indeed coming to Apex Legends as Crypto’s heirloom.
Wattson is the other contender to get an heirloom. The French engineer is one of the oldest legends to not receive an heirloom just yet. She was added to the game in Season 2 and we have seen much newer legends like Rampart and Revenant already receive their special melee weapons. Renders of both Crypto and Wattson have been leaked and one of the two legends are most likely to receive an heirloom this season.
How to get Apex Legends’ Next Heirloom
There may be two ways to get the next Apex Legends heirloom for Crypto or Wattson. Unless Respawn changes how heirloom unlocks work, there should be a 'Collections' event similar to other legends which will allow you to purchase it by unlocking all event items. Alternatively, you may be able to get his heirloom with 150 heirloom shards after the event ends. Here are some quick numbers to help you decide if the heirloom is worth your money or not:
Cost of 24 Apex Event Packs (guaranteed heirloom): 16,800 Apex Coins
Cost of two special bundles: 7,500 Apex Coins
Special Bundles + Additional Packs: 15,900 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 7,500 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.
