An Apex Legends data miner has confirmed that Bloodhound’s previously leaked Twitch Prime Gaming skin is next in line to be released. 

As the different Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, the roster of Legends have been given a whole host of new cosmetics. Be that skins, emotes, quips, or the ultra-rare heirlooms, players have plenty of ways to customize their favorite legend.

And, just like with other popular games, Twitch Prime members can use their subscription to their benefit by grabbing exclusive cosmetics that are only on offer to them. 

Wraith, Pathfinder, Revenant, and Octane have been among the select few legends to get their own Prime-only skin, but now, it looks like Bloodhound will finally join their ranks with a previously leaked new skin.

Bloodhound has become one of Apex’s most powerful legends.

The fresh claim comes from reliable leaker Shrugtal, who had previously leaked the new purple and flamed-themed Bloodhound skin back in May, and claimed that it was first set to arrive back in July. 

“This is scheduled for the next Twitch Prime release now,” the leaker posted on August 28, quote tweeting their initial post from late May. 

There is typically one new Twitch Prime skin each month in Apex, so expect this Bloodhound skin to release sometime in September, though there’s no exact date set yet.

The current Twitch Prime rewards for Apex Legends – which include a Rampart skin and weapon charm – are set to become unavailable on Thursday, October 1.

The Apex Prime Gaming page confirms that September will be the next drop: “Claim your Rampart skin today and be sure to check back in September for the next content drop.”

After Bloodhound, we can expect another cosmetic in October, the final one before the new Apex season is set to begin, on November 10

In November, there will likely be a new Prime reward for whatever new Legend is released.

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.

  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.
