Every Apex Legends Heirloom Ranked From Worst to Best: How Should You Spend Your Shards?

What is the best heirloom in Apex Legends?

by Noah Nelson


Heirlooms in Apex Legends are fan-favorite cosmetics that serve to boast your coolness. Though it is extremely rare, you can receive red shards through Apex Packs that you can spend on any legend’s heirloom. You can also purchase all of the seasonal Apex Packs to be awarded an heirloom. Not all legends have an heirloom, but they are released periodically. Here are the best Heirlooms in Apex Legends Season 13.

Since heirlooms are only cosmetics, this list will be fairly objective, but I’ll try my best to keep out any personal biases. Also, if you’re looking for other tier lists, check out our character tier list or our weapon tier list for Season 13. We cover a bit of everything on our Apex Legends guide page.

Apex Legends Heirloom List Season 13

It is worth remembering that an heirloom is only as good as its legend, meaning if you have shards to spend, you should spend them on the legend that you like playing the most. Here are the best heirlooms ranked worst to best.

First up, we have Wattson’s heirloom called Energy Reader. Ever since this leaked, this heirloom has been despised by the community and it still serves as a mediocre heirloom. It is simply a gun-looking piece of equipment. Equally lame but a bit better is Mirage’s heirloom called Too Much Witt. This heirloom, while funny, isn’t too impressive. The heirloom is a statue of Mirage. It could be argued to be higher on this list since it matches his personality so well, but because it isn’t a weapon, it isn’t that great of an heirloom.

Next is Rampart’s heirloom called Problem Solver. This wrench heirloom that dispenses gumballs is as good of an heirloom that Rampart could get with her background and character, but it doesn’t beat the other heirlooms on this list. Caustic’s Death Hammer is next which is a pretty cool heirloom. As the name suggests, it is a hammer with a skull that emits gas when used.

The next three are Bangalore’s Cold Steel, Lifeline’s Shock Sticks, and Pathfinder’s Boxing Gloves. Bangalore’s is a pilot’s knife that fits her background and has some solid animations. Lifeline’s Shock Sticks are two drumsticks that double as defibrillators. Pathfinder’s Boxing Gloves are… well, boxing gloves which is perfect since Pathfinder has a boxing arena on Olympus.

The next best heirlooms are Octane’s Butterfly Knife and Bloodhound’s Raven’s Bite. The Butterfly Knife heirloom is perfect for Octane because of his quickness and hyper energy. The axe for Bloodhound isn’t as well thought out as other heirlooms on this list, but it still makes sense and is really cool.

The top heirlooms are Wraith’s Kunai, Gibraltar’s War Club, and Crypto’s Biwon Blade. The Kunai heirloom for Wraith looks really cool and fits her stealth features very well. She is very ninja-like, especially with the right skin, so this heirloom is a perfect fit. Gibraltar’s War Club looks really cool and fits his islander background. And the newest heirloom to date, Crypto’s Biwon Blade, is epic. It is a sword that matches his white and green aesthetics.

And, finally, the best heirloom in Apex Legends is Revenant’s Dead Man’s Curve. Revenant is easily the scariest legend in the game, and with the right skin, he can easily look like the Grim Reaper. The Dead Man’s Curve is a flexible, machine-like scythe. It is a perfect match for Revenant’s creepy aesthetic and works as the best heirloom.

Apex Legends is available now on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
