The hunt for easter eggs in Apex Legends has been reignited as a developer update suggests there are plenty of undiscovered secrets still buried throughout World’s Edge.

The Apex community was a force to be reckoned with during Season 1 and 2 when it came to finding all of the fun surprises that the devs laid out across Kings Canyon.

Whether it was miniature nessy dolls etched into strange crevices or vague connections to the greater Titanfall universe, players were keen on making sure nothing was left unchecked when combing through the game.

Respawn EntertainmentNessie dolls were hidden in bizarre locations throughout Season 1, and players actually managed to find them.

But it seems like either the easter eggs catalogue is too large in Season 3 or the hunt for them has hit a stall, since some devs have noticed quite a number of them have yet to be accounted for.

In either case Senior Level Designer at Respawn Entertainment Rodney Reece wants to rekindle the drive in players to uncover the game’s secrets with a timely public service announcement to the fan base.

“PSA: It’s been a month now,” he said. “And half the easter eggs have not been found yet in World’s Edge.”

Passionate easter egg hunters in Apex might be hurt from the realization, but it seems effort to uncover all of the little inside jokes on World’s Edge still has a long way to go.

Although it might be discouraging to hear, there could be a good reason for why easter eggs have yet to be discovered.

Respawn EntertainmentThe game devs have loaded up Apex enough for players to put the easter egg hunt on hold it seems.

In the one month that Season 3 has been live, there has been enough content to keep players extremely busy in the packed slate for the month of October.

As soon as Season 3 started, players were whisked away to a brand new map, not to mention the addition of Apex Legends’ eleventh character, Crypto.

Soon after the Halloween event hit, players were sent back to Kings Canyon but this time with a Halloween zombies twist to keep them engaged for quite some time.

Now that the hype has settled, at least in part, Apex Legends players might just answer Reece’s call and get back onto the hunt for all of the secrets on World’s Edge and beyond.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
