Updated: Dec 3, 2021 3:36 pm

The new assortment and skin collection is out. A strange sentence if you’re not an avid Apex player. To those who are in the know, Apex Legends often hosts Collection events. Usually with the end goal being in getting a Legend’s Heirloom. This one’s no different, as well as playing host to a series of new Legend skins. Well we’ll quickly go through what’s new in this Raiders Collection Event.

Wattson Heirloom

Finally right? Wattson fans had it hard enough with her being left in the side-lines, only recently getting a buff. But also, after a long wait, she’s now got her own Heirloom!

Here it is! You may have seen the prototypes for its animations around Twitter and needless to say, people are excited about it. Especially considering how much character and personality each heirloom gives their individual characters. It’ll be interesting to see what accompanying banner pose players will get with this Heirloom.

To get yourself this Heirloom without hoping for the White Whale Heirloom shards in the packs, you’ll have to complete the Raiders Collection event prize tracker.
