Leaked Apex Legends game files have revealed an early look at the new cosmetic items, Sprays, that are expected to be added to Respawn’s battle royale in Season 6.

Apex Legends offers players a wide variety of ways to customize your game to their liking, with unique character and weapon skins that are available to be unlocked or purchased.

However, it looks like Respawn has even more cosmetic items planned to be released, after an image of some Apex Legends themed ‘Sprays’ was shared on June 24.

Sprays have been introduced to plenty of other titles such as Fortnite in the past.

Sprays have been a popular cosmetic feature in many different multiplayer titles, such as CS:GO and Fortnite, as they allow players to decorate any walls or buildings with a design of their choice.

Reliable Apex Legends data miner shrugtal has revealed that Respawn devs are now working on these Sprays following the release of Season 5, sharing a look at some of the UI icons for the cosmetic items.

The six unique sprays revealed in the leaked game files feature some familiar faces, each with one of the current Legends, such as Loba or Wattson, placed in the center.

It is likely that these will be released similar to some of the other cosmetic items in Apex Legends, requiring players to find them in packs or by unlocking them.

These new sprays are not the only upcoming paint-based items that have been leaked, however, as a new hop-up that can turn weapons into a paintball gun has also been shared early.

While many have rumored their release for Season 6, it is unclear just when Respawn will make these new cosmetic items live, although there is plenty of speculation as to which new legend that might be introduced alongside them.

One of the leaked Legends is Rampart, an engineer-based character, who was also referenced in-game files following the June 23 patch, with new information revealed about how his abilities work.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
