Apex Legends Heirlooms are premium cosmetic items that can only be obtained by spending Heirloom Shards.
These shards are rarely available during Apex Legends Events and even more rarely obtainable via Apex Legends Packs.
While the chances of pulling Heirloom Shards from an Apex Pack are low, players are guaranteed to pull some if they haven't yet by the time they open their 500th pack.

Apex Packs Calculator
Not all players keep track of every single Apex Pack they open.
The tool takes into account a multitude of different factors like:
- Account Level
- Battle Pass purchases / levels
- Daily Treasure Packs obtained
- Packs purchased
- Twitch Prime Membership
It is a lot of information to put in, but once a player does, they are greeted with an approximation of how many Apex Pack they have opened and how close they are to their 500th pack and some Heirloom Shards.
The Calculator will not increase a players' chances of obtaining Heirloom Shards, but it is a great way to visualize players' Pack habits and estimate how much longer they will have to wait until some guaranteed Shards.
For players who are not sure about some of the information required for the calculator, the site's author, Zarandona, provides helpful information on how to obtain the data.
Once a player receives Heirloom Shards, the hard work really begins.
Choosing which Heirloom to craft, or even waiting until an Heirloom for their favorite Legend is released.
