We finally have a first look at Crypto’s heirloom animation thanks to a recent leak in Apex Legends.
Apex Legends is an FPS battle royale game set in the same universe as the Titanfall franchise of video games. As it is a free-to-play title, purchasable cosmetic items play a major role in the game’s long-term health.
In Apex Legends, there are melee skins called heirlooms that are usually character-specific. Also, they are the most sought-after cosmetic item in the game mainly due to their low drop rate from the Apex packs.
Respawn usually launches a new heirloom alongside a collection event that comes with event-exclusive Apex packs. Purchasing all the Apex packs that come with the collection event guarantees an heirloom.
Over the years, Respawn has released a lot of heirlooms for different legends in the game. And according to the leaks, fan-favorite legend Crypto will receive his heirloom in the next collection event in the game.
Crypto’s heirloom with animation
Thordan Smash, a reliable leaker and Youtuber have revealed Crypto’s heirloom which is called “Jikdo” with proper animations. From the leaked clip, it seems like this was taken from a playtesting session.
The leaked video showcases the animation of the heirloom. As this is based on the Japanese weapon called Jikdow, it also has proper sheathing animation. It basically comes out of the sheath and folds in and out. Unsurprisingly, these small details give this heirloom a more authentic feel and it really matches Crypto based on his lore.
Apex Legends players are always really excited regarding the heirlooms. And from what we have seen so far, Crypto’s heirloom will definitely make his dedicated fans really happy.
