“Instead of an entire Heirloom set dropping at once, you’ll now receive Heirloom shards. You can then use those shards to pick the exact Heirloom set you’d like.
“The shards will have the same drop rate as the previous system, so that after 500 Apex Packs, you will have enough Heirloom Shards to obtain an Heirloom set from the Heirloom shop.
“And don’t worry, your existing progress towards the 500 Apex Packs will carry over with the switch. Remember that once a player owns all of the Heirloom sets, the player will not be eligible to receive more shards until more Heirloom Sets are added to the game.”
Apex Packs launching during the new event will include a set of 24 themed, limited-time cosmetics, in addition to 6 matching legendary character + weapon skins and 12 other epics.
Players can obtain these new in-game cosmetics through direct purchase for Apex Coins, direct unlock with Crafting Metals or random unlock with Event Apex Packs.
And players who unlock all 24 System Override cosmetics will also receive the Octane Heirloom set. For a full look at what’s being planned this week, you can check out the Apex Legends patch notes below:
