The biggest addition to Apex in this season was the Arenas game mode. This mode had taken everyone by surprise but has proven to be very popular. Since the release of this mode, the devs have been making changes which includes adding new maps, increase/decrease of materials required for each weapon/item and more. Since the release of this mode, players have been asking for a ranked version.

In the EA Play Live 2021 Spotline, Respawn’s Founder and Group GM, Vince Zampella, and Apex Game Director, Chad Grenier, revealed just how long it takes to develop characters and new maps. They said it takes approximately a year and a half to perfect a Legend. Maps also take around the same amount of time and even map updates can take around six months and they are currently a season ahead of town takeovers.

The latest exclusive Prime Skin that you can claim for free now is for Crypto and is called Dragon Skin, which you can see below. In order to claim this Skin, you must link your EA and Amazon Prime accounts and you will then be able to claim the Skin. More lore has been revealed about both Caustic and Crypto, with a video that was posted on Twitter with Wattson talking to Caustics mother, which also happens to be Crypto’s adopted mother. In this video, we learn that Crypto is actually a lot younger than he says he is, with his age actually being 22 not 31, making him closer to Wattson’s age.

In the video, we learn more about Mystik and that she was aware of Caustic being alive when she watched her first Apex Game. If you didn’t know already, Caustic faked his death as he was terminal from cancer. Wattson is close to both Caustic and Crypto, although in different ways. Caustic appears to be more of a father figure to Wattson and it looks Crypto is in love with Wattson and we could see them in a relationship.

At the end of the video, it looks as if Mystik could be dead from the deadly toxin even though Caustic and Crypto are working together to try and find the cure. We will have to wait and see if they get back in time. If you want to watch the full video, you can see it below.

Apex Legends Hacked by Titanfall Fans

Apex Legends is currently being hacked by Titanfall fans. 

Many Apex Legends fans have been greeted with a message popping up on their screen that reads, “IMPORTANT MESSAGE. Visit and repost savetitanfall.com” upon login. This wouldn’t be much of an issue if it playlists weren’t affected, but many players are not able to get into a match as the normal playlists are not showing up.

Apex Legends Save Titanfall Message

Titanfall is another game made by EA/Respawn and it has had it’s fair share of hackers who take down the servers and spamming games with bots. This has made the game unplayable, which has left a lot of Titanfall fans annoyed. The website savetitanfall.com was created to try and get Respawn to solve the issues as the game is still available to purchase, regardless of its state. They have released a statement that they are no way involved with the hackers that are targeting Apex.

Respawn are aware of the issues with the playlists and are trying to resolve the issues, but it may take some time as it is the 4th July. Players have been reporting this problem on PC and on consoles and there doesn’t appear to be a workaround, unless if you restart the game on your device when the message pops up, but this can be very annoying.

Save Titanfall Website

There is an event currently taking place in Apex called the Genesis Collection Event, where the original Kings Canyon and Worlds Edge making a return for this event only. Skull Town is also featured in the Arenas mode, which is something players have been requesting since Arenas was introduced at the start of this season. It is possible that Respawn will extent the event due to these hackers affected the playlists, but no official announcement has been made as of yet. We will be keeping you updated as soon as more information is released.

Apex Legends Revenant’s Heirloom Revealed – Dead Man’s Curve

The Heirloom for Revenant in Apex Legends has just been revealed. Dead Man’s Curve and here is what it looks like.

The Heirloom sets in Apex Legends are ultra rare which contains a Banner Pose, Melee Weapon Skin and an Intro Quip. A new Heirloom set is released every collection event and fans like to guess which legend will be getting their Heirloom. So far the Legends that have their Heirloom sets are, Wraith, Bloodhound, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Octane, Mirage, Caustic, Gibraltar and Bangalore.

The way in which you can purchase the Heirloom set is either by purchasing all the 24 limited time cosmetics from the Collection event or by getting Heirloom Shards. These shards can be earned by opening Apex Packs, but they are so rare with each pack having less than 1% chance of dropping the 150 shards. (I still don’t have any shards, despite playing Apex since release).

The new Genesis Collection Event for Apex has just been revealed and to learn more about it and the full patch notes, click here. As previously mentioned, every new collection brings a new Heirloom set for a Legend and the fans like to predict which Legend will be receiving their Heirloom set. It was thought that Wattson would finally be getting her Heirloom, but she missed out on this occasion with Revenant being favoured instead.

Revenant’s Heirloom is called Dead Man’s Curve, which can be seen in the video below:

If you really want to get this Heirloom, you can purchase all of the 24 themed cosmetics that will be available during the Genesis Collection event, which you can purchase with Apex Coins or Crafting Materials. Alternatively, you can wait until you get the shards from the Apex pack, which you can then use to purchase any Heirloom set in the Heirloom Store.

What are your thoughts on Revenants Heirloom? Will you be using your shards to purchase it?

Apex Legends Players Getting Banned For No Reason

There are a few players getting banned on Apex right now and here’s why.

Respawn have been trying to address the issues of players DDoSing the servers to try and get more points to rank up higher in the Ranked mode. If they detect a player DDoSing the server, all players will be kicked from the game and no points made in that match would have counted.

Players were hesitant that these changes would mean the attackers will use that to their advantage and attack the servers if they were to lose points, but Respawn have said there are more fixes that will be made in the future. It looks like there is a new issue relating to Apex players and some have been banned for no reason.

Apex Players Banned From the Game for No Reason

Some players have logged in to find they have a message to show they have been banned, but they haven’t done anything wrong. There is no need to panic as this ban will likely be reversed very soon if it has been done in error as this has happened a few times in the past.

EA have come out with a statement saying that they are aware of an issue with Anti-Cheat in Apex Legends, and are working to fix it as soon as possible. If your account has been banned by error, there isn’t much you can do at the moment but wait unfortunately but as they are aware of the issue, the hope is that these accidental bans will be reversed very soon.

But in case you missed it, it looks like Skull Town will be returning to Apex in the Arena mode, which looks like it will be coming very soon! And a new cinematic released by Respawn on the official Apex Twitter account hints at a potential new legend and the backstory of Pathfinder and why he was created and how Ash was actually involved in his past.

Apex Legends Pathfinder’s Lore Video Reveals More About His and Ash’s History

A new video was just released by Respawn showing Pathfinder’s purpose, his creators and more on Ash’s history.

There is so much lore for all the characters in Apex Legends, but one of the most intriguing characters has been Pathfinder and his journey to the Apex Games to find out who his creators are and why he was created different form the other MRVN’s. As there is so much to the stories, Respawn decided to release a book, called Pathfinder’s Quest in which you see Pathfinder interview the other Apex Legends to learn the truth.

Apex Legends Pathfinder Lore Cinematic

Respawn tweeted a cinematic on the official Apex Twitter account (@PlayApex), which shows Pathfinder telling his story. There was an energy shortage in the Outlands and there were different scientist from around the Outlands who came together to come up with a solution but they needed more help, and so Pathfinder was created.

They managed to create the Branthium to solve the energy crisis, however Dr Reid, AKA Ash, had turned evil at this point and wanted to steal all of it, but Pathfinder and the rest of the scientists managed to deliver the rest of the Branthium but only Pathfinder managed to survive and made it through the phase runner, which had created an explosion in Olympus. They had managed to save the Outlands! You can watch the full cinematic below:

If you look at the names on the statue, you will have noticed three of the names of the scientists are all linked to the Apex Legends, which we have detalied below:

  • Dr Amelie Paquette – Wattson’s grandmother
  • Newton Somers – Horizon’s son
  • Dr Aleki Gibraltar – Gibraltar’s grandfather

At the end of the video, you see Pathfinder talking to Blisk who asks, “Oy. One more thing.. Did you ever find the other one? The one they made from you. Your uh, spare parts.” To which Pathfinder comically responds, “I… have a child?” Looks like Pathfinder has a new mission!

Skull Town Making a Comeback to Apex Legends

Skull Town is finally coming back to Apex Legends!

Apex Legends was first released on 4th February 2019 and the original map was called Kings Canyon. Since the release of this map, there have been some changes made, with Leviathans first attacking the map and making some changes to the map to them being moved to the water in later seasons. In Season 5, major changes were made to the map due to the actions of Loba and the Syndicate, one of which was Skull Town falling.

Apex Legends Skull Town
Apex Legends Skull Town

Skull Town was a very popular Point of Interest (POI) to land at, with almost half of the lobby being eliminated here in the early stages of the game! Since the removal of Skull Town, the player base have always wanted it to come back, and it looks like the developers at Respawn are doing just that!

The official Apex Legends Twitter account (@PlayApex) just tweeted the following:

Apex has a lot of lore for each character and unlike some other Battle Royale games, the storyline is very consistent and makes a lot of sense, so it may be difficult to include Skull Town back to Kings Canyon. So this brings up the question of how Skull Town will make a comeback and the answer could be Arenas.

Apex Arenas mode

Arenas is the new mode introduced to Apex this season and have proven to be such a popular and successful addition to the game. In this mode, we see two teams of three compete against each other to win, with there being a minimum of three rounds where players earn/gather materials to purchase weapons, healable items and abilities.

In Arenas, there are small sections from the maps that feature in this mode for the teams to fight in and Respawn could be hinting at a new Skull Town map coming to Arenas. The patch notes should be releasing on Thursday, so we will know exactly what changes will be made then, but let us know what you think in the comments section below.

New Apex Update 10th June Addresses DDoS Attacks – No Stats Tracked & RP Changes

Respawn have just announced a new update which will address the issues of players who DDoS and how it will affect gameplay.

Ranking up in Apex Legends is hard to do when you get to the later ranks and recently has proved to be very difficult with players carrying out DDoS (denial-of-service) attacks on the servers. Some players have done this in order to gain more RP to rank up quicker, which is extremely annoying for other players.

Apex Legends
Apex Legends

Apex Legends Ranking System – How does it work?

In order to rank up in Apex, you will need to gain points. The more kills you get, the more points you will earn, but there is a maximum of 6 Kills/Assists that you will earn points for. You also earn points for placing higher in the matches, so the aim of the game is to get the most amount of kills with points and to place high. Each rank will have different entry points, which will of course be higher for the higher ranks, which makes it harder to rank up if you do not get any kills or place high.

Apex Ranking System

Apex DDoS Attacks – Changes to Address these Attacks

For a while now, there have been a lot of attacks on the Apex Servers as there are some players who decide they need to cheat in order to rank higher, which is frustrating for players who genuinely play the game to reach Apex Predator. Respawn are aware of the issues and have finally released an update to make some changes.

Now, once an attack has been detected, everyone will be removed from the game and they will be granted loss forgiveness, i.e. no penalty for game abandonment. The entire game will be voided, which means no RP will be accounted for and it will be as if you hadn’t got into a match. This has been implemented to stop the attackers from gaining more RP and to protect normal players from ranking down.

Apex Ranked Gameplay
Apex Ranked Gameplay

Here is the official statement made by Respawn:

We’ve just shipped an update to address denial-of-service attacks on Apex. Now, when we detect an attack, all players will be booted from the game and granted loss forgiveness. The idea is to deny advantages to attackers and protect victims of those attacks from RP losses. In some cases, this change will cause the results from matches to be entirely voided: No stats tracked, RP gained or loss, etc. More updates to deal with these sorts of attacks are on the way. We’ll keep you updated.”

There will be more updates, but this is a great start by Respawn. There are some concerns that these attackers will DDoS the servers when they are losing instead to make the match not count so they will not lose points, but we will have to wait and see what Respawn do to improve on this issue.
