KralRindo, Apex Legends content creator/dataminer, is back and this time sharing a first glimpse at a possible change to Heirloom weapon weapons.

According to their latest datamine Heirloom weapon will receive recolor cosmetics. The new update’s files include some recolor textures for Wraith’s Kunai Heirloom, as seen in the image KralRindo posted on Twitter.

The image includes recolor examples in red, yellow, purple and white. However, the implications of these recolors are much wider. The inclusion of recolors for the game’s special weapons could potentially add a lot more value to what are already very expensive cosmetics.

Heirloom weapon are currently very difficult to find in-game. They’re made available in Collection events, like Seer’s Heirloom currently available in the Spellbound event. They can be obtained by crafting or purchasing all possible rewards. The former comes with a price tag of more than $150. Heirloom Shards can also be obtained after certain Loot Ticks have been opened in-game.

It’s unclear when or if these recolors will be added to the game, but if they become a reality, their method of acquisition will likely be a hot discussion topic around the Apex community.

KralRindo also mentioned they are “expecting the new inspect animations for heirlooms and weapons in season 16” because “they added/renamed a lot of inspect animations in the files,” so customization could be getting serious overhauls.
