Not only is Apex Legends a popular game, but its selection of characters make for excellent cosplay opportunities, as we saw with this Mirage outfit.

As players wait for Season 2 of Apex Legends to drop, fans have found other ways to keep occupied with their time.

Given that Respawn Entertainment has made an incredibly unique set of characters, cosplayers have been given the perfect opportunity to make costumes of their favorite characters. 

Sending out a bamboozle

Mirage is one of the easier Legends to cosplay, mostly because he’s a human so a lot of the hard work is already done.

A user on Reddit who goes by Lyonz91 showed off his impressive Mirage cosplay from MegaCon Orlando. It’s pretty hard to find any faults with the outfit, but you can judge for yourself below.

Apex Legends is a lot like Overwatch from strictly a cosplay standpoint. Overwatch allows for many cosplay opportunities thanks to the vast selection of Heroes. Apex Legends is following right behind and could continue to keep up if new Legends are introduced to the game.

Respawn said a new Legend will be arriving with Season 2, but we still have to wait for the official unveiling.

When is Season 2 coming?

Apex Legends Season 2 will be revealed at E3 2019 during EA’s press conference, which is probably when we can expect to learn more about what’s included and hopefully get a release date.

Respawn said a new Legend, map points of interest, weapons and an improved Battle Pass can all be expected with Season 2. Shroud said he has played the new Legend but warns fans to not get their hopes up too much.

The only thing fans need to know now is if it’ll be enough to keep the interest.

What does Branthium mean in Apex Legends? Horizon & Ash Season 7 teasers

Amid all the teasers for Apex Legends Season 7, one word has been on the lips of a number of characters: Branthium. But, what is this? A location, material, or something else entirely? Here, we’ll put together all the clues to get to the bottom of this mystery.

The first time we heard the word Branthium in Apex Legends, it came from Ash, at the end of the Season 5 Broken Ghost quest.

Ash is the villain from Titanfall 2, who was recruited by Kuben Blisk, before she “died” at the hands of Jack Cooper, was put back together again, her memory wiped, and then her head split into parts and spread throughout Kings Canyon.

Once the Legends put her head back together, she spoke to them, and, as part of an unintelligible message, said: “all roads lead to Branthium.”

What is Branthium in Apex Legends?

After the mention from Ash, in the first Twitter teaser for Season 7, Horizon (expected to be the next playable Legend), repeated the word “Branthium” in among all the static.

It later became clear that Horizon was repeating what Ash said – or, perhaps Ash was repeating Horizon.

Is Branthium a place?

The saying, “all roads lead to Branthium”, is undoubtedly a play on the common phrase “all roads lead to Rome.” Typically, this saying refers to “all paths or activities lead to the center of things” – it comes from Ancient Rome in the literal sense, when all roads started from the capital city.

So, at first, most theories believed Branthium was a place, possibly related to the planet Psamathe and its city, Olympus. Ash finished her monologue by saying “Welcome to Olympus.”

But, a spanner was thrown in the works of this theory by Horizon. In the latest Twitter teaser, Horizon says: “Just got to figure out how he can fuse the Branthium (or Brantium?) without critical mass.”

So, is Branthium actually some kind of element, or fuel, or material? This remains unclear, but it wouldn’t make sense for Ash (and Horizon) to say “All roads lead to Branthium,” if it was simply some kind of element.

This theory could line up though with the involvement of Hammon Robotics. The Planet Harvester which launched in Season 4 is being used by Hammond “to gather precious metals from the core of the planet for reasons unknown.” Is this metal Branthium/Brantium?

Perhaps, Branthium is both a place and an element, with the latter named after the former. Brantium could be a metal discovered on the planet Branthium? For now, we simply don’t know, but we’ll keep this post updated as more teasers emerge about this mysterious word, and what it could mean.

Season 7 is set to start on November 4 – a week earlier than initially planned – so we should learn a lot more then.
