A fresh Apex Legends leak has seemingly revealed that a further crossover with Titanfall could be in the works for player vs environment event – but could the actual Titans be involved?

With Apex Legends and Titanfall co-existing in the same universe, fans who have played both of Respawn Entertainment’s titles have been begging for more and more crossovers between them. 

We’ve seen pretty neat ideas from players for a Pilot legend and even incorporating Titanfall features like wall-running. However, Respawn has really only used select weapons, the Prowlers, and parts of the lore from their other popular game inside the battle royale. Though, a new leak might be pointing at even more happening in the future.

Reliable Apex Legends data miner that1miningguy pointed out that there are strings in the current game files that point to a player vs environment (PvE) event where Titanfall characters are being used.

In the data miner’s findings, you can see labels for the Spectre, Stalker, Frag Drone, and Titan being accompanied by the ‘_outlands’ tag. “This is interesting to me because I cannot remember seeing the specific strings for these NPCs that included the _outlands tag,” he tweeted, noting that nothing is confirmed however.

Of course, the references to Titans and different Titanfall character in the game’s files are nothing incredibly new. Many weapons and other items have been uncovered before, but only the Prowlers have been used in a prominent way so far.

Respawn have said previously that they experimented with using Titans in Apex, however, they didn’t seem to fit and ruined the balance of things.

Though, the Outlands tag attached to this sighting of the characters is interesting, as it might be in reference to an event coming down the line. 

Apex Legends season five currently has weekly hunts that are PvE based, with players taking on the Prowlers in week one, but it remains to be seen if Respawn has something bigger in mind involving the other Titanfall names.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
