Apex Legends' Revenant has had his Heirloom skin revealed thanks to recently uncovered leaks.
Apex Legends Heirloom skins are extremely rare and unique cosmetics associated with the past of the character they're tied to. They typically apply to melee weapons and can be unlocked by gathering 150 Heirloom shards. The shards, themselves, are also rare, only carrying a 1% drop rate from any individual Apex pack. Additionally, if players own all the skins, they will no longer be able to receive shards at all.
There are currently nine Heirloom skins in game with each around a distinct to a certain Legend: Octane, Bangalore, Wraith, Bloodhound, Pathfinder, Lifeline, Mirage, Gibraltar, and Caustic. Revenant would be the tenth installment.
Apex Legends Revenant Heirloom Skin Revealed
The skin was unveiled by prolific Apex Legends Twitter informant, @Shrugtal. In a short thread published on Tuesday, May 4, Shrugtal uploaded a close-up image of the weapon as well as a short video showcasing Revenant's animation gripping the weapon and, essentially, snapping it back together.
The weapon in question has yet to be named, but does strikingly resemble a traditional scythe. It has a dark slate-blue metal blade with a red handle and black grip. According to the video clip, the blade's resting state is in fragments connected by a bright red wire. Once Revenant takes it in his hands, the fragments rapidly snap back together to form the curved edge of the scythe and a red tab pops into place below—likely to serve as a logistical "lock" so it doesn't accidentally come undone.
Unfortunately, this is all the information currently available about this weapon. There is no confirmed timeframe for when players could see it released into Apex Legends, no in-game description, and no working tag.
DBLTAP cannot confirm the veracity of any rumors surrounding the Heirloom at the time of writing.
