Apex Legends players might have moved a step closer in their search for Season 4 clues as a data miner has revealed the most likely identity of a mysterious ship floating high above the map.
That1MiningGuy has been the first to many of the developer's biggest secrets, uncovering plans for Town Takeovers, new legends, and much more well before they ever arrived in-game. And now, it appears that the leaker has come up with another interesting discovery.
There has been plenty of crossover between Titanfall titles and the new uber-popular Apex Legends since the latter first launched in February of last year, and it appears yet another feature from the popular franchise has been added to Respawn's game.
Many players have been wondering what the beaming light in the sky is on the World's Edge map, as unfortunately, they can't travel that high up in-game, and it looks like That1MiningGuy has come to a conclusion about what it is – clearing up some previous suspicions in the process.
The data miner looked into it, searching through the data files for hints, and shared findings to their Twitter followers on January 23.
They posted: "Pretty sure Shrugtal is right about that light in the sky being a Harvester. They were reportedly used by both sides in Titanfall 2 and are used to extract minerals from a planet. Interesting."

The Twitter user he cited in the tweet, Shrugtal, has been theorizing about what may happen next in the game and it looks like they might be right.
Whether or not the Harvester's potential presence will have anything to do with the storyline for Season 4 remains to be seen, although with the return of King's Canyon been confirmed by developers – as it's coming back to Ranked Mode – there's a chance that this could tie in with that.
For those who have never seen a Harvester before, it's a lit up, cylinder-shaped aircraft that can drop on land – as seen below.
One of these bad boys ("Harvesters") to suck out the planet's resources gonna land in Hot Springs then (typical corporate "improvements") . Going off the new zone name "Harvester". I think blue lights are almost certainly thrusters of a a ship carrying this? pic.twitter.com/llKUC1kosB

There's also the small matter of upcoming map changes being confirmed for World's Edge. So, the mineral extracting Harvester could play a part in that journey for players as well.
Season 4 has been officially named 'Assimilation' and there's a good chance that when it eventually drops, so too will the Harvester from the sky and give fans a chance to see what it's doing in Apex Legends once and for all.
