When it comes to Apex Legends cosplays, Wraith tends to be the most popular pick, but that doesn’t mean Octane can’t get some love as well.

The roster of Apex Legends is pretty much unrivaled when it comes to cosplay opportunities. Each character has a plethora of skins at their disposal so each one could have multiple takes, further increasing the possibilities.

Something you don’t see a whole lot of is a female spin on a male character but that’s exactly what we’re looking at here. Instagram user sadiegeneralmajor took Octane and gave him a female twist. It seems pretty safe to say that she pulled it off in a big way.

Octane on his own is already one of the more difficult characters to cosplay due to his elaborate design, but that was no problem for Sadie she was not only able to nail his mask, but also his signature eye goggles.

Even if this isn’t the most elaborate cosplay we’ve seen, it’s still impressive, especially when you consider the amount of time and work that has to go into creating these outfits.

In another that has green tint over it, you can really see Octane come to life and match his look we see from the game itself.

From this angle, you can also see the stomach design and how it matches Octane’s in-game look almost perfectly. All in all, it’s a solid cosplay of a character who is rather difficult to pull off.

There’s a lot of design aspects you have to get right with a character like Octane, which could be the reason we don’t see a whole lot of them in the wild. Another reason could be he’s not exactly the strongest character in the game and as a result, he doesn’t have as many fans. Perhaps some buffs could come his way in the future.

As for a character like Wraith, there are not as many extra things you’ll need outside of colored contacts if you want to replicate her phasewalking design.

This cosplayer nailed a female take on Octane!

It’s always exciting to see what people can cook up with their cosplays as no two outfits are alike, even if they’re based on the same character.

As the Apex Legends roster continues to grow, we will see even more cosplays in the future and we couldn’t be more excited.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
