Heirloom Sets are the rarest cosmetic items that a player can earn in Apex Legends. They only appear in Apex Packs and require players to open roughly 500 packs to acquire one. With those odds, it’s no wonder why so few players have even a single Set. Thus far in Apex Legends, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wraith, and Bloodhound all have their own sets. However, according to leaks, one more legend, the speed-demon Octane, may be added to that list sometime in Season 4.
Heirloom Set coming for Octane in Apex Legends?
Octane seems to be the legend receiving the most love so far in Season 4 – besides Revenant, of course. Earlier in the week, we received another leak about a possible special edition of Apex Legends involving Octane.
This leak regarding an Heirloom Set, though, is obviously a bit more substantial. The source for this is @That1MiningGuy, a well-known data-miner in the Apex Legends community. According to him, the PC files show that Octane is likely the next-in-line to receive an Heirloom item.
Well guessing we'll see this at some point in the future. (not sure near or far – but only other one I see other than the ones we already got, so likely next?) pic.twitter.com/9lDINwVo0N

As we can see from the files, “Heirloom” and “Octane” appear together in multiple lines of code. So, Respawn is clearly working on an Heirloom Set for Octane, which appears to include a knife of some kind. Fans in the community wanted the melee item to be Octane’s robotic leg, but it seems like Respawn has other ideas.
There’s no word in the files on when this set is scheduled to drop. However, it would make sense that an Heirloom set would release sometime during the middle of Season 4. Last season, we received Pathfinder’s boxing gloves during the Holo-Day Bash event, which was close to mid-Season 3.
If Octane is next-in-line for an Heirloom Set, we should hear about it within the coming weeks. Until then, make sure to keep up with Daily Esports for all Apex Legends news.
