After the recent Apex Legends map leak, not many people thought there would be more exciting information to be uncovered about the future additions to the world of Apex. However, there is always a vast amount of details found out by way of data miners leaking classified files. This can have positive effects on growing hype for certain content that could be added, but at the same time can spoil the surprise for players finding out when a new official announcement or update rolls around. The latest found within the game files was a Wattson heirloom.
The Apex Legends Wattson Heirloom Leak
The leak itself was found by ‘GarretLeaks‘ and ‘Shrugtal‘. Both individuals had leaked separate parts of the details for the heirloom with ‘GarretLeaks’ finding the main model image and posting it, whereas ‘Shrugtal’ had posted the animations for the weapon along with a video showcasing them.
Shrugtal had then posted the following on September the 14th.
WIP Wattson Heirloom with full anims in files. It's internally called "nessie_gadget", and she sort of strokes and scratches it in some anims.
So it's probably both a taser and a Nessie tamagotchi that has a Nessie AI on the screen that reacts to her actions. pic.twitter.com/iXnJMCUhsW

Both leakers have a long history of extracting information from the Apex Legends files. As can be seen from Shrugtal’s posting, the video showcases Apex Legends Wattson heirloom in action, with the leaker making conclusions that the heirloom will have a taser and a ‘Nessie Tamagotchi’ along with it.
What Are Heirlooms in Apex Legends?
Heirlooms are high echelon ‘ultra-rare’ cosmetic items that have always got a higher degree of originality compared to some other cosmetics within the game as they are attached to individual legends themselves.
This heirloom would make the mark of being Wattson’s ‘set’ for part of her heirloom collection as usually there will be an ‘intro quip’, and a ‘banner pose’ to go along with the main item of the set.
Apex Legends is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC through either Origin and/or Steam.
