Apex Legends Heirloom Shards Guide

What Are Heirloom Shards?

Heirloom Shards are consumable items that can be redeemed towards very rare "Heirloom" items with bespoke dialogue and banner options, as well as designs that mirror the legend that they were created for.

Think of them as the snazziest items for each Legend outside of character skins, but much harder to earn.

How To Get Heirloom Shards

Heirloom Shards are found in Apex Packs, which are earned for ranking up or purchasable with real money. You only have a 1 in 500 chance of grabbing them though, but with each drop your shards are added to a total.


Once you reach the required amount, you can convert those shards into an heirloom item via crafting. Doing so will unlock that item, and you can then work towards your next one.

That means it's going to take you a while (or a lot of money), but the rewards are worth it.
