Apex Legends anniversary event may offer Heirloom Shards
The next anniversary of Apex Legends is coming up, and if players’ expectations are met, the upcoming event will make it easier for them to obtain an Heirloom of their choosing. A recent rumor suggested that, instead of the usual Heirloom or Prestige Skin, players might receive a set of Heirloom Shards as the final reward for participating in the anniversary event.

Additionally, a screenshot showing Heirloom Shards emerging from an Apex Pack was released, implying that these rare items would be the ultimate reward for completing the event’s set of cosmetic challenges.
Even though Heirloom Shards may be on the table, obtaining them will not be simple. All of these major events have 24 cosmetics available for purchase or crafting, and if players spend enough in-game currency or real-world money on the event, they receive the Mythic cosmetic being offered. This can make some players disinterested in events if the featured Heirloom is for a Legend they don’t play. However, events like this one, which offer Heirloom Shards as the expensive prize, are good catchalls for anyone who has been wanting an Heirloom and has some money to spare.
That’s all you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event 2023.
