Apex Legends has thrown down the gauntlet with its latest crossover event, featuring the iconic Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. The highlight? The Buster Sword R5 Heirloom, a universal melee cosmetic that’s up for grabs for free – but only for a limited time.
Here’s your guide to snagging this coveted item without opening your wallet.
The Final Fantasy VII Rebirth crossover is a temporary event, running from January 9 to January 30, 2024. This is your only shot at the Buster Sword Heirloom, as it won’t be available in the Mythic store post-event. So, mark your calendars and get ready to dive in.
The key to acquiring the Heirloom for free lies in the event’s reward shop, similar to the one from the Post Malone event. The shop will feature Apex event packs containing the crossover items, including the Buster Sword. These packs can be earned without spending real money, but you’ll need to be diligent.
You’ll need to log in daily and complete event challenges to accumulate enough in-game currency to purchase these event packs. Each pack offers a chance at the Heirloom, among other items. With 36 items in the event and a likelihood of 2-3 free packs available, your odds are decent but require commitment.
For those determined to stay free-to-play, this event presents a real opportunity. By consistently completing challenges and strategically spending your earned currency on event packs, you can potentially unlock not just the Heirloom but also other iconic skins.
While the allure of free items is strong, remember that the odds are not guaranteed. It’s a game of chance, and while you have a shot at the Heirloom, it’s not a sure thing. So, manage your expectations and enjoy the event for what it is – a fun crossover with some cool potential rewards.
This event is a unique opportunity in Apex Legends history. A universal Heirloom, usable by any Legend, and a crossover with one of gaming’s most beloved franchises.
If you’re a fan, don’t miss out on this chance. Log in, complete those challenges, and who knows? You might just walk away with a piece of Final Fantasy history in your Apex arsenal.
