Out of all the cosmetics in Apex Legends, Heirlooms are by far the most sought-after thanks to their rarity and unique animations that fit the personality of their respective Legend.

Respawn releases a new Heirloom with every Collection Event and these arrive every single season in the game, never failing to generate a lot of excitement.

The question is, who will be receiving the next Apex Legends Heirloom on the roster? Well, let's check out everything we know so far.

Do we know what the next Apex Legends next Heirloom is?

Fuse fans have finally been awarded their Heirloom, with the Bombastic Explosives Expert receiving a Mythic item in the Harbingers Collection Event.

In terms of who is next, there have been no leaks hinting at the candidate just yet, but they'll likely begin to surface as we approach Season 19. Here are all the Legends that still don't have an Heirloom and could be next:

  • Mad Maggie
  • Newcastle
  • Catalyst
  • Ballistic
  • Vantage

For anyone unaware, Heirlooms are melee weapons that are specific to a particular character, which gives that character new animations. They are highly sought after, as there is only one per character and not all Legends have their own yet.

How to get the next Apex Legends Heirloom

As with all collection events, you will be able to unlock the next Heirloom by purchasing all of the items in the collection for the duration of the event, which is the only way to get it.

Once the event is over, the Heirloom can still be acquired, as all previous Heirlooms can be bought in the store within the Heirloom section, costing 150 Heirloom Shards each.

Heirloom Shards are a very rare currency, with just a 0.2% chance of appearing in an Apex Pack. There is a system in place that guarantees at least one drop of Heirloom Shards in every 500 packs you open, which still isn't a great option but it is at least a guarantee. Either way, you will get 150 Heirloom Shards in a pack, which is enough to buy one Heirloom.

That is what we know so far about the next Heirloom coming to Apex Legends. For more on the game, be sure to check out our Apex Legends homepage for all the latest news and guides.
