Heirloom melee weapon skins are one of the most coveted cosmetic item types in Apex Legends. Heirlooms, while they don’t add any damage, give a Legend a unique melee weapon and a set of new action animations when you play them with no weapon in hand, or if you use their melee attack.
While not every Legend has an heirloom yet, all of the original eight Legends do. Missing at the time of this writing are Heirlooms for Horizon, Fuse, Seer, Ash, Mad Maggie, and Newcastle. It is expected that the aforementioned Legends will get theirs eventually from future Collection Events that will happen going forward.
How to unlock Heirloom melee weapons in Apex Legends
While historically there have been other ways to earn them, Heirlooms can currently be earned in two ways. You can unlock them directly when they are first released by buying out all 24 items in a Collection Event, or after their event has ended, you can unlock them with Heirloom Shards from the Mythic section of the Store. The store holds all past-released heirlooms in the game.
