Loads of information has been revealed about the Apex Legends Halloween event, called Fight or Fright, and now we have our first look at the plethora of new skins that are on the way.

Pathfinder’s voice actor Chris Edgerly confirmed the existence of an Apex Legends Halloween event, and now we’re getting a further look at what’s to come since he couldn’t give us more insight for obvious reasons.

Luckily, several leaks have given us a better idea of what to expect and things are looking pretty great from what the data miners have revealed so far.

Well-known Apex Legends leaker, That1MiningGuy, found an assortment of Halloween skins for every character in the game, including the brand-new Season 3 addition Crypto.

Some are a bit more festive than others and we don’t get the best look at all of them, but we’re sure as the event draws closer, we’ll have a better picture for some of them.

Franken-Gibraltar.

As for Crypto and Pathfinder, we don’t have the clearest of looks for them, but they were revealed in some smaller images.

One thing fans will be hoping for is for the pricing to not be what it was with the Iron Crown event.

Seasonal skins are always popular no matter the game so it’ll be good to see Respawn nail the pricing so fans will be able to pick up some of their favorites without breaking the bank.

On top of the skins, we have several other cosmetics that have leaked. We have some glimpses at what appear to be weapon charms that will be coming to the game.

It looks like Respawn will be going all out with this event which is good to see.

The release date for Apex Legends’ Fight or Fright has yet to be announced, though Battle Pass entries are already in the game, so expect it sometime in the month of October.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  1. Place an Octane jump pad
  2. Melee attack right before stepping onto the pad
  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
