The topic of updating old Heirlooms has been in the community for a long time. However, it seems like Respawn finally has something to offer.
The first Mythic items to appear in Apex Legends were the Wraith, Bloodhound, Lifeline, and Pathfinder Heirlooms. Compared to the more recent ones, which have more distinctive animations like Loba and Seer Heirlooms, they are far less functional.
The earlier Heirlooms in the game look and feel rather basic in comparison to the newest ones. Only one animation is available for the Pathfinder, Bloodhound, Lifeline, and Wraith Heirlooms. So naturally, players have been asking Respawn to update old Heirlooms for a while now.
Wraith Kunai Recolor is Being Tested
After a big update goes live, data miners always find something interesting in the game files. Similarly, right after Season 16 Spellbound Collection Event went live, data miners such as SWL and Senos found two lines of codes that looked very promising.
Apparently, a recolor texture was found in the game files, along with a purple smear effect (Wraith’s original smear color is blue). This made everyone wonder if Respawn’s previously promised Heirloom update is actually becoming a reality or not. And, KralRindo‘s latest tweet just proved it to be true after all.
According to KralRindo, there might also be new inspect animations for the Heirloom/s along with the Wraith Kunar Recolor. However, these are still going through the testing phase, and Respawn often scraps content from the game files. So, it is still unclear whether the Kunai recolor will release or not.
However, with all the possible good things set for Season 16, it is not a Wraith main’s dream to get their hands on the updated Heirloom in the future. Nonetheless, EA is notorious for monetizing everything in Apex Legends. So, it wouldn’t be surprising if players have to pay to get their hands on the Kunai Recolor.
