How to Get 150 Heirloom Shards from Apex Legends’ 4th Year Anniversary Event
Apex Legends is hosting its 4th Anniversary celebrations and a new Heirloom event is making its way to the game on 14th February. If you have always wanted an heirloom, this is one of the best times to obtain one as purchasing packs can be significantly cheaper thanks to free event packs being offered as part of the anniversary rewards tracker. Here is everything you need to know about the new Collection Event in Apex Legends Season 16.
Apex Legends Season 16 Anniversary Collection Event
There are 24 cosmetics available as part of the new Anniversary Collection Event. Each Apex Pack tied to the event will cost you 700 Apex Coins which is on par with other collection events. If you purchase 24 packs, you are guaranteed to get 24 unique cosmetics which will complete your collection and get you 150 Heirloom Shards. However, two Collection Apex Packs are being given out for free which makes the cost of obtaining an heirloom slightly lesser.
Unlike other events which offer a specific Heirloom, getting Heirloom Shards means that you can craft any existing or future Heirloom whenever you want. If you have crafting materials lying around, we recommend using them to craft Epic items in the Collection Event which will bring down the number of Apex Packs you need to buy. If you have been saving your crafting materials for a while, you can theoretically craft all the cosmetics and get 150 shards for “free”.
As always, there will be various bundles that you can purchase which are available at a small discount compared to purchasing all the packs in one go.
Cost of 24 Apex Event Packs (guaranteed heirloom): 16800 Apex Coins (Two packs available for free)
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.
