The release date of the upcoming collection event in Apex Legends called Raiders, featuring the long-awaited Wattson’s heirloom, has been unintentionally revealed.
Respawn Entertainment launched the battle royale spin-off of their popular Titanfall franchise of video games called Apex Legends without any prior marketing. Following its release, it quickly garnered a lot of accolades, mainly due to its diverse roster of Legends, all with unique skill sets.
Furthermore, Respawn releases collection events focusing on individual characters with each new seasonal update. These collection events introduce new limited-time game modes, Legend-specific town takeovers, exclusive skins, and lastly Heirlooms.
Heirlooms are the most sought-after cosmetic items in the game, as they are really rare to collect by simply opening Apex packs. The other way to collect heirlooms is the collection event, as only in that limited-time period players can purchase heirlooms by buying up all the limited-time event-specific Apex packs.
However, these event-specific Apex packs usually cost more than the base Apex packs. And you have to purchase all the event-exclusive Apex packs to guarantee an heirloom. As each event pack costs around 700 Apex coins, in total, players will need to spend around 168$ to collect a new Heirloom.
Raiders collection event skins
So far, we know that the previously leaked Space Pirate event is actually just a code name for the upcoming Raiders event. And as with every other collection event, Respawn will introduce new space pirate-themed event skins. As of writing, data miners have only revealed a Seer skin.
Aside from the Seer skin, more legendary and epic tier skins are apparently in the works for the Raiders collection event.
Raiders Collection Event Release Date
The Raiders Collection Event will go live on December 7, 2021.
