When Apex Legends first released back in February, there was one item that every player craved. Only available out of an Apex crate, the Wraith Heirloom cosmetic knife was all the rage. If you were lucky – or rich – enough to earn this item, you were given a brand new knife. However, the knife had its own animation and special twist specific to the Legend Wraith.
For a long time, this was the only Heirloom item, the highest rarity, in the game. Fast forward to now, and we have a total of three in Apex Legends. However, according to leaks, that list could be growing very soon with the addition of a Pathfinder Heirloom set.
Is Pathfinder the next Legend to receive an Heirloom?
As of right now, Wraith, Bloodhound, and Lifeline all have Heirloom items. Wraith has her knife, Bloodhound has his tomahawks, and Lifeline has her drum sticks. But thanks to data-miner Shrugtal, we may have an early look at the next Legend to receive an ultra-rare item.

This set of boxing gloves wouldn’t pertain to any other Legend besides Pathfinder. As all other Heirlooms are melee weapons, it seems doubtful that the gloves would be anything other than a Pathfinder Heirloom.
Still, we can’t say for sure that this will be the next Heirloom. This is nowhere near official, after all – it was data-mined. Yes, the fact that an image is within the files makes it a near certainty that this will come to Apex Legends. But when it will arrive in Apex is another question entirely.
That said, both Bloodhound and Lifeline received their Heirloom set at the same time as an in-game event. With the ‘Winter Express’ event set to start soon, it would make sense if Pathfinder received it then.

Though, could more than just the boxing gloves release in Pathfinder’s Heirloom set? Maybe we could see some kind of ultra-rare skin come with the set as a part of the Winter Express event. If anything does occur with the upcoming event, we should know about it relatively soon.
