Apex Legends dev responds to annoying bug deleting Wraith’s portals

Respawn developers have responded to a strange Apex Legends bug that is completely deleting Wraith’s Dimensional Rift portals from the map.

Wraith still remains to be one of the most popular characters in Apex Legends for her unique abilities and evasive playstyle, which can lead to plenty of outplays.

The fan-favorite Legend is best known for creating portals to get her and her teammates out of dodge, but there have been problems with her abilities in the past, such as one bug which would turn her portal into a death trap.

Apex players have found a new bug with Wraith’s Dimensional Rift.

There now seems to be a new issue with Wraith’s “Dimensional Rift” ultimate ability, which is apparently deleting the Legend’s portal before she has a chance to use them.

A clip of this bug was shared by Apex pro ZachMazer, who showed off a lowlight of himself running towards opponents with the ability activated, so that he could safely bring his teammates into the fight.

However, after attempting to place the portal for his teammates to join the fight, it was seemingly removed from the area, leaving him stranded alone with the opposing team.

The Apex pro was immediately killed by the surrounding players, later calling for Respawn developers to fix this bizarre bug.

Apex Legends dev Josh Medina responded to this unusual glitch, revealing that he had already passed the clip on to the QA team to try and find a fix.

“I sent the clip to our QA to see,” he explained, “we’ve seen reports of Wraith portals being eaten similar to your clip so it’s something folks are trying to [reproduce] consistently.”

Although Respawn devs are working on ways to fix this annoying bug, as of now, it is still unclear when exactly this issue will be patched in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
