Apex Legends’ heirloom weapons are the rarest commodity within the recreation, and may value a fairly penny too. Whereas these particular melee weapons don’t supply any gameplay benefits, they’re the flashiest and coolest approach for somebody to indicate their love for his or her favourite Legend. And regardless that Fuse could be the most recent Legend, he could be getting his heirloom earlier than anybody thinks, and we’d even already know what it’s.
The Aussie grenadier Fuse is Apex Legends’ latest Legend, main some to suppose that his heirloom would possibly nonetheless be a approach off. However the launch historical past of the heirlooms so far suggests which may not be the case. Some might imagine that Respawn would go in chronological order and launch heirlooms for the unique Eight base recreation Legends earlier than shifting on to every of the seasonal addition characters, but it surely hasn’t. Octane was Season 1’s further Legend, and Octane obtained his heirloom again in February 2020, earlier than half of the unique Eight Legends did.
There’s solely one of many authentic eight Legends left who hasn’t obtained their heirloom but anyway, Bangalore. However in response to latest information mines from dependable sources, Bangalore is subsequent in line to obtain an heirloom, and can possible get it in the course of the subsequent occasion throughout Season 8. Crossing her off the checklist signifies that Fuse is just one of seven remaining Legends nonetheless due for an heirloom, spanning the Legends added in Seasons 2-8. Given how early Octane received his heirloom. It stands to purpose that Fuse may hypothetically obtain his heirloom even earlier than the likes of Loba or Wattson, and will perhaps even obtain his in 2021.
Most heirlooms have ties to the Legend’s backstory, like how Pathfinder’s boxing gloves are based mostly on his Tales from the Outlands video the place he befriends a boxer-turned-detective by the identify of Victor Maldera. Fuse is already forward of the curve when in comparison with loads of Legends, as Fuse already has a Tales from the Outlands video, and there may be an object of nice significance to the character in plain sight all through it: the golden grenade.
Fuse’s Tales from the Outlands video chronicles his and his ally Maggie’s rise to energy as freedom fighters on their residence planet of Salvo. It’s unclear if they’re siblings or associates however their dynamic is maybe finest described as “frenemies,” represented by their oftentimes violent one-upping of one another, and the passing backwards and forwards of the golden grenade that they discovered as children.
The grenade is used as a melee weapon a number of occasions all through the trailer, lending credence to the concept that it may very well be Fuse’s heirloom. The trailer does finish with the grenade exploding, but it surely appears possible that there may very well be extra golden grenades on the market, given how the 2 occur to seek out it on a random useless Salvonian freedom fighter.
As to how this new gold grenade may come into Fuse’s fingers, it is onerous to say. Since he’s left the planet on quite dangerous phrases, perhaps Fuse and Maggie will make good sometime and she or he may give it to him as an apology for blowing his arm off with the final one. Stranger issues have occurred in Apex. In spite of everything, Loba and her mother and father’ assassin Revenant put their variations apart to seek out Revenant’s supply code, although that temporary truce ended quite grimly in a latest lore video Respawn launched.
In fact, individuals have been incorrect earlier than when attempting to guess heirlooms. The launch trailer for Season 6 featured Caustic brandishing an extended steel fuel cylinder as a melee weapon, however his heirloom ended up being a hammer with a simulacrum head as an alternative. Nonetheless, all of the items are there for Fuse to obtain the golden grenade as his heirloom in Season 9 or later.
