Following the release of the gameplay trailer for the impending season of Apex Legends on September 28, new character skins have been spotted throughout the Meltdown teaser.

Respawn Entertainment have drummed up a lot of interest leading up to the highly anticipated release of Apex Legends’ third season. 

Titled ‘Meltdown’, the season will have players exploring a brand-new map, ‘World’s Edge’. As Legends explore previously unknown territory, players will also have the opportunity to complete challenges, all of which come with their respective rewards.

Respawn Entertainment (EA)Crypto has led Legends into a New Dawn with World’s Edge.

Following on from previous seasons, fans will have to purchase a Battle Pass in order to unlock access to the exclusive skins and content that will come during Season 3. 

In terms of its cosmetics, Apex Legends has traveled a bumpy road thus far, on its venture through the minefield that is microtransactions. 

From the pricing issue that came during the Iron Crown event, to receiving an abundance of praise for their creative efforts during the Voidwalker event, the devs are now in the spotlight, as fans look on in anticipation ahead of Season 3.

Alongside showing a new perspective on World’s Edge, the gameplay trailer showcased new skins for Lifeline, Pathfinder, Octane, and Crypto. 

Displayed throughout the entirety of the trailer, Lifeline and Pathfinder have received a Meltdown–themed makeover, as the combat medic is seen with lava surging through her veins, whereas the wholesome robot will sport the frosted look while traversing around the new map.

However, an eagle-eyed fan and self-proclaimed loremaster has also spotted more character skins throughout the trailer, and has taken to the Apex Legends subreddit with their finds. 

Fan-favorite, Octane, appears to have received two new outfits, while Crypto is seen with a blacked-out take on the skin we have become accustomed to seeing him throughout all of the Season 3 previews so far.

Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re making some pretty big changes in regards to the care package weapons in Apex Legends Season 7, as the R-99 is set to return to floor loot. 

With each new season, Respawn Entertainment brings plenty of changes to Apex Legends. New characters are introduced, existing ones are changed with buffs or nerfs, there’s usually a new weapon, skins, and sometimes items. 

In Season 7, Horizon is joining the Apex Games, and we’ve already had a whole host of legend changes confirmed too – as well as a handful of skins being revealed for a few different characters. 

On the new weapons front, though, confirmed details have been lacking. There have been rumors about new weapons, and even a new item type, but the biggest change looks to be coming to the care package weapons.

Care package weapons are rotated each season, meaning that some fan favorites become hard to find. This includes the R-99, which was regarded as one of the top weapons in Apex in the last few seasons. 

However, when it comes to Season 7, the powerful light ammo SMG is coming out of the care packages and returning to being floor loot – and potentially the Replicator through crafting too. 

This was confirmed by Apex Legends dev Chad Grenier in a pre Season 7 media briefing, who noted that the Prowler should be taking its place.

As for changes to the R-99, there’s no telling if it’ll be nerfed significantly in Season 7, or if it’ll return to its previous form where it was pretty strong anyway.

We’ll just have to wait until the patch notes are revealed when the new Season update releases on November 4 and bring Horizon, Olympus, and a whole host of new content with it as well.
