Fans have been speculating about random events happening inside of Apex Legends long before Season 1 kicked off, and with the first season finally here, fans are convinced something big is coming.

The First Season Battle Pass was like sweet manna from heaven for Apex Legends players who had been waiting, both patiently and impatiently, for more content in the battle royale.

Now, some fans are convinced that there’s something else headed to the island, based on clues found on the map.

So what’s the theory then?

In a Reddit post on March 22, user FrozenFroh suggests that, based on images from the Season One trailer, that the massive Leviathans and “Flyer swarms” could be headed to the island.

In the image from the trailer, they compare a broken “repulsor” and a massive Leviathan to an in game shot of the same area.

Just what exactly the creatures would do is unknown, but users suggested they could make some places no-go areas by becoming physical barriers or dangerous threats.

FrozenFroh also speculated on a new character, Wattson, who could be joining the cast of Champions during Season One.

Some players have expressed disappointment with the offerings in the Season One Battle Pass, so a little extra content and a new hero would probably be more than welcome.

Other Apex players have already speculated that dragons could be headed to the map, so there seems to be plenty of potential for some kind of in game event for Season One.

The Apex Legends Season One Battle Pass is available now, and, according to leaks, the first season will last until June 5, plenty of time for random events to happen or a new hero to appear.

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.
