A random lobby glitch in Apex Legends has accidentally created one of the most terrifying skins yet for the newly added character Revenant.

After many teasers, Apex Legends revealed that Revenant would be the newest character to enter the action in the much anticipated Season 4 update.

Many fans were eager to see test out the new Legend when the update was released, however, one player managed to experience an unusual lobby glitch which gave the new addition a terrifying look in-game.

The Unholy Beast skin is one of the most terrifying looks in Apex Legends

Apex Legends Reddit user u/Rechulas was rocking one of the Revenant’s legendary skins, Unholy Beast, when they encountered a glitch that seemed to improve on the already popular cosmetic option.

Rechulas shared a look at what they experienced with others on the subreddit on March 6 and expressed that although it was a random glitch, it could actually make for a great skin in Apex Legends.

“Had a glitched version of the Unholy Beast, thought this could be a cool skin,” they explained, revealing the glitched character’s terrifying new appearance.

Although Revenant’s Unholy Beast skin would be a frightening sight by itself, the glitch gave the new character a metallic look and some demonic eyes to go with it.

Despite the fact the glitch was obviously unintended, many other Apex Legends fans rallied around the idea of introducing a similar cosmetic item for Revenant.

The glitch managed to get many mains of the new character excited about what could be next and one user even replied, claiming that it would be one of the “best skin’s ever” to be introduced in the popular battle royale title.

However, as for now, fans will just have to wait and see whether or not Respawn will choose to introduce a similar skin for Revenant in a future update.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
