While players wait for news on the newest legend coming to Apex Legends, some fans have been hard at work creating original characters for their new favorite game.

There are a number of theories about the who the next legend will be, including several leaks for a character known as ‘Octane.’

As fans wait for more news or confirmation on a new hero from Respawn, one creative player called mrmng on Reddit decided to make their own original legends.

Mrmng created a total of four new legend concepts named: “Xiao Long,” “Shroud,” “Wulf,” and “Shogun.”

Xiao Long would be a grenade-focused legend, with abilities that increase the range and damage of thrown ordinances.

It’s clear mrmng is fan of Twitch streamer Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, because their ‘Shroud’ character is based on him, and even uses the streamer’s logo for the legend’s ultimate ability.

Shogun appears very similar to Gibraltar, using shields and barriers to protect teammates. He also has an ability that applies temporary shields based on the amount of damage he deals out.

Finally, Wülf, is a legend who can greatly increase teammates movement speed, and his ultimate is movable shield for defending allies, similar to that of Gibraltar.

We still don’t know exactly what the new legend will consist of or when they’ll come out, but with the amount of hype from the community, Respawn should be dropping the news soon.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
