Stop the clocks! The legendary Wraith Voidwalker skin, which has only grown in popularity since it was removed in Season 2, is finally set to return in the Apex Legends Summer Sale next month, according to new datamined leaks.

Wraith’s legendary Voidwalker skin ⁠— which started life as the ‘Ghostwraith’ cosmetic before Respawn switched the name ⁠— is by far Apex’s most popular ‘fit.

The futuristic costume first debuted in Wraith’s Voidwalker event all the way back in Season 2, and hasn’t been available since, which has only added to its legendary aura. Players have demanded its return, of course, but Respawn has constantly scuppered those ideas, dubbing it “an event exclusive.”

According to new leaks, however, it looks like the Apex devs may have finally folded. The super-popular Wraith skin is finally be returning to the game in a yet to be announced Summer Sale, dataminer ILootGames revealed earlier this week.

The Voidwalker skin looks to be included in two Summer Sale bundles, according to the data string codes related to the event. The first is simply titled “Voidwalker Bundle” while the other is dubbed the “Phase Shift Bundle.”

Wraith isn’t the only Legend to get a specialized bundle in the sale either, as far as the leaked code is concerned. Season 5 debutant Loba will also get a drop, likely called the “Dressed to Kill Bundle,” which will contain exclusive items.

There is a huge amount of smaller bundles also included in the code, including a “Holy Grail” pack, a “Lucky Cat” bundle, and a “Treasure Trove” collection. Here’s the full list of Summer Sale bundles uncovered in the datamined leak:

  • Holy Grail Bundle
  • Lucky Cat Bundle
  • Treasure Trove Bundle
  • Dressed to Kill Bundle
  • Voidwalker Bundle
  • Phase Shift Bundle
More than a quarter of all Apex Legends fans play Wraith, meaning her rare Voidwalker skin is super-popular.

The code strings also seem to reveal when the Voidwalker skin, and all Summer Sale bundles, will actually arrive in-game. The data-code entry “200721,” which Dexerto has also confirmed is still in the game’s development files, suggests the seasonal sale will begin with an update on Tuesday, July 21.

So, it looks like the wait is finally over for Wraith players that hopped into the world of Apex Legends after Season 2. Now the question is, what other rare and legendary skins from past events could be ‘unvaulted’ in Season 5?

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.

Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.

Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
