The Heirloom system in Apex Legends may soon get recolors, according to recent leaks. That’s a great ideal, but how exactly is Respawn Entertainment going to implement this rumored cosmetic system?
Apex Legends leaks suggest Heirloom recolors
The possibility of Heirloom recolors was first revealed earlier this week when Twitter user SomeoneWhoLeaks shared a screenshot highlighting a retexture for Wraith’s Kunai, the game’s first Heirloom. In response to the suggestion that this was simply an update for the Heirloom in general, the leaker stated that this should be interpreted as a completely new texture or “re-theme,” as the files suggested.

Following this leak, another Twitter user, KralRindo, stated, “Heirloom recolors are coming officially.” An image was shared as a preview of what these recolors could look like, but it is more of a prediction than an actual leak.Despite what the community and leaks may suggest, Respawn has not confirmed any Heirloom recolors, and some skeptics are already imagining the worst based on the game’s history of recolor implementations. There have been numerous “these better be free” comments due to the rarity of Heirlooms, but with Apex’s current monetization system, it’s hard to imagine any Heirloom variant being provided at no cost. Based on how recolors have been implemented in the past, it’s possible that it could have an Apex Coin (real money) value in addition to a higher sum of Legend Tokens or Crafting Metals, but this is pure speculation.
So far, we haven’t heard anything about EA or Respawn changing the colors of the Heirlooms.
