How to get the Wraith Knife in Apex Legends

Best answer: Wraiths Kunai and her other heirlooms are only available through Apex Packs. There is, we are told, a one-in-500 chance of you receiving it so all you can really do is open as many Apex Packs as possible. You can win them or buy them but you will need a lot of them.Microsoft Store: Apex Legends (opens in new tab) (Free)Microsoft Store: Apex Coins (opens in new tab) (From $9)

What is Wraiths Kunai?

Wraiths Kunai is part of the heirloom set available in Apex Legends. It features three unique items — Wraiths Kunai, a banner pose showing the Kunai, and an intro quip soundbyte — that can be equipped to wraith to customize her look and sound. Each legend will eventually have its own set of heirlooms, but for now, only Wraith has them.

It is important to note that the Kunai does not change your attacks in any way. It is purely a cosmetic item, replacing Wraith's normal melee attack with one that looks way cooler.

There is only one way

The only way to get the Wraith Knife, or Wraiths Kunai, is to have it randomly appear with two other heirlooms in an Apex Pack. This means that you can't purchase it separately or shortcut your way to acquiring it.

That means if you are lucky enough for it to pop up, you will have something that very few other players will get, which is pretty cool.

The odds are not in your favor

From what we have been able to gather from EA and Respawn, the chances of getting the Heirloom Apex Pack is only one in 500. That means for every 500 Apex Packs you open, only one of them is likely to have Wraiths Kunai in it.

So if you are a player who doesn't spend money on Apex Packs the chances of you randomly getting the heirlooms is extremely small, though one of our friends did get one randomly which is very cool, and at least we know it can happen.

If you want to, you can buy it. Sort of ...

OK, let's be real here, this is a cosmetic item only. It doesn't make Wraith's melee more powerful or give you some special ability; it just looks cool. That means nobody really needs to own it.

That said, if you are one of those people who must own all the coolest stuff and you can't rely on the vagaries of RNG, then you can, in theory, buy enough Apex Packs to guarantee you get the Heirlooms.

Let's do the Math. You will need 50,000 Apex Coins to buy the 500 Apex Packs needed to guarantee you aquire the heirlooms, including Wraiths Kunai. To do that you will need to buy four of the 11,500 coin pack for $100 each, and one of the 4,350 coin packs at $35. That's right, people, you will need to spend $435 to get this item that makes no mechanical difference!

Our advice: please don't do this.
