It has been recently leaked that the Season 9 Winged Avenger, Valkyrie, is getting her own heirloom.
Heirlooms have been a part of Apex Legends for almost the entirety of the game's lifespan as they were added a few months after the game's launch. Heirlooms are one of Apex Legends' most sought-after items in the game, despite the item not having an effect on skill. Each Heirloom changes the skin of the melee weapon and comes with a special animation. Additionally, Heirlooms come with a voice line.
As of now, not all Legends have their own Heirloom as only 13 out of the 21 legends have one. If this leak turns out to be true, a fourteenth legend will have an Heirloom.
The new Valkyrie Heirloom is a long staff with a sharp blade on the end. The inspiration for the Heirloom could possibly be from the Japanese Naginata.
In addition to the Heirloom, Valkyrie is receiving a new animation. Putting away her new staff, Valkyrie pulls out a tasty-looking bowl of ramen and a pair of chopsticks. The voice line and banner pose have yet to be leaked.
The release date for the leaked Heirloom is currently unknown but could be released on June 21 with the Awakening Event, where many other new features will be added into the game.
