If you’re lucky, opening a loot box in Apex Legends might get you a set of “heirloom” items. These are ultra rare cosmetic items with a less than one per cent chance of dropping, though you’re guaranteed to get one after 500 boxes. One player ended up paying $US500 ($704) to go through 500 boxes in the hopes of getting the illusive items. Now that he has them, he doesn’t feel as though it was worth it.
If you've been staying away from Bioware's airborne looter shooter, that's understandable. But if you're still a little curious, and want to get some closure for yourself, retailers have started discounting Anthem to absurd levels.
