Dust off your barricades, break open a fresh pack of bubblegum, and put some ammo into Shelia because the Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event is here. Revolving around Rampart’s town takeover, this event will introduce a number of balance changes, a new Point of Interest in World’s Edge, and a ton of cosmetics for players to purchase. Similar to previous collection events, those who have been saving Heirloom Shards or some cash can buy Rampart’s heirloom during the event. If you’re looking to pick up this candy dispensing wrench, here’s how to unlock Apex Legends’ latest heirloom during the Evolution Collection Event.
How to Get Rampart’s Heirloom
Unfortunately, there are still only two ways to earn heirlooms in Apex Legends. The first is during the Evolution Collection Event, which requires you to purchase every cosmetic item in the event tab via the Evolution Event Packs. Each pack guarantees you only one cosmetic from the event, however, you will never receive a duplicate. There’s also a higher chance to receive base legendary tier items. This means you will need to purchase a total of 24 loot boxes to unlock her heirloom. You can only buy Event Packs in either groups of 10 for 7,000 Apex Coins or individually for 700 Apex Coins each.
Breaking down the numbers, you would need to purchase $160 USD in Apex Coins just to have enough to buy all of the Event Packs. This, of course, assumes you bought two sets of ten and then the last four by themselves for 700 Coins each. You can reduce this price a little by purchasing the bundles in the Evolution event store, but it won’t save you much. Typically, the store is mainly for those who only want to buy specific, popular legend skins rather than the entire suite. Keep in mind, this cannot be earned any other way during the event. If you cannot afford all of these loot boxes then you’re going to have to go with the second option which is to open up Apex Packs.
Unfortunately, this isn’t ideal either. Heirloom Shards are guaranteed after 500 Apex Packs are open and have a very, very small chance of dropping before this milestone. The problem is, even by reaching level 500 you won’t have opened enough to nab some Heirloom Shards. So you’ll either need to purchase packs or hope the ones from the seasonal battle pass are enough. If you do have Heirloom Shards, you’ll need to wait until the Evolution Collection Event is over to buy Rampart’s wrench.
For the unfamiliar, this event is also reworking Rampart’s ultimate. Players can now pick up Shelia and carry it around while firing at opponents. The catch is, while you’re carrying it this minigun will only have one clip of ammo. However, you can always mount it to restock the ammo or allow teammates to hop onto the turret. This should give Rampart more aggressive options, allowing players to apply pressure or deny specific routes for them to take. While I don’t think this will make Rampart a “top tier” character, it should make this legend far more versatile which is something she’s desperately needed.
