With the new Apex Legends x Final Fantasy Rebirth Event, there is now a common heirloom usable by any legend.

Apex Legends has been the leading Battle Royale game in the gaming community for a while. Unlike its counterparts, Apex is a fast-paced game with legends’ abilities augmenting the experience but not overly defining it. Each character adds some depth to the world, with some players attuning to their personalities. The cosmetics in the game add to this, with each legend having their own set of unique cosmetics, particularly heirlooms.

For the first time, Respawn has added a common heirloom in Apex that can be used by any legend. With the new Final Fantasy Rebirth Event, the Buster Sword R5 has been added in both a themed BR Takeover as well as through event packs.
