Apex Legends fans heap praise on Respawn for Voidwalker event

David Purcell

Respawn Entertainment have long been criticized by members of the Apex Legends online community for a lack of content being added to the game, but have the tables turned in Season 2? 

The event kicked off on September 3 and, as seen in the official patch notes, introduced a whole host of changes to the battle royale game – including brand new portal in the sky, an Armed and Dangerous limited time mode, Wraith Town location and even a decrease in cosmetic pricing. 

These type of changes have been called for by fans for quite some time, in order to freshen things up in-game and give people the opportunity to pick up skins more affordably. 

Let’s take a look at the final verdict on the Voidwalker event from the players’ perspective. 

EANew Voidwalker cosmetics have been added to Apex Legends, but the overall pricing is still causing concern.

Since the update first landed in-game, thousands of players have jumped into Kings Canyon, been trying out the different features and posting their thoughts online. 

In a thread featuring on the Apex Legends subreddit, it very much looks like fans have come to a consensus around it as well. 

A thread named: “Can we show some love towards this event? Respawn, you did an amazing job” and started by user mikeytlive has gained a lot of traction, with others chiming in with their own verdicts on the event.

One user responded: “Not gonna lie, that the portal drop zone is some of the most fun I’ve ever had in this game,” while another posted: “Especially great job on the new location! This adds a great landing location to the map and its finally a good spot on the east side.”

While some reduced price cosmetics have been added to the game for the start of this update, where fans can pick them up for $5, many still have gripes about the price of skins overall.


“$20 for a skin is still completely absurd and needs to change but otherwise good stuff,” one user wrote, and many others agreed in the thread. 

On the whole, though, there has definitely been a largely positive response this time around.
