Apex Legends players looking to get a lot more out of typical matches in Kings Canyon are going to feast in the upcoming Double XP event.

Respawn Entertainment are on the cusp of transitioning to Season 3, after the successful Voidwalker in-game event brought players back to the Apex Games. The devs unloaded a ton of content for players to explore, but not all went smoothly.

Previously, Respawn had planned to release their VoidWalker Double XP on the weekend of September 9, but connection issues in relation to the event ultimately made the devs disable and postpone the promotion.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers are sure to jump into the Apex Games to make full use of the Double XP event.

But it looks like the minds behind Apex Legends have worked out all the kinks for players to dive into the Double XP action from September 12 until September 16 at 10 am PDT / 12 pm EST / 6 pm BST.

The four-day event will let players skyrocket their progression through the Season 2 Battle Pass, since players are starting to hear murmurings for the next chapter of battle royale.

But getting the rewards won’t be so simple since the players will have to get Top 5 in a match or get a Win to reap the weekend’s benefits.

The event will bleed into the next week on Monday, giving some people a chance to make up for lost time if they didn’t get enough games during the apex of the event.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers looking to level up their Season 2 Battle Pass will want to get in on the Double XP action.

What happened to the first Double XP event?

Player reports made Respawn aware that their first Double XP offering was giving out disconnection errors for a lot of people, leading them to make a quick revert.

“The issue has been resolved. It was related to activating Double XP so we reverted the change and are postponing Double XP boost until next week. We’ll provide updates on new dates soon.”

Hopefully, this time around all will go well now that the company has looked into the issue for the second attempt for the 2x XP rewards.

It’s bound to be a busy weekend for players who want to grind out those final levels before the start of Season 3 for 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.
