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 ‘death spot’ on Olympus is getting players stuck & killed

A bugged ‘death spot’ in Apex Legends has been discovered on Season 7’s new map, Olympus, that’s getting players stuck in place before eventually eliminating them completely.

There’s a lot of room for error in the sky city of Olympus. The new Apex Arena has ample spots where players can simply fall off the map, tight corridors that are a death trap if not navigated correctly, and more pitfalls to watch out for at every corner.

Unfortunately, the same can be said about simple features on the map, like the rotating Grow Towers that have already been known to prematurely end players’ games if they stay on the spinning platforms for too long.

However, sometimes, even getting onto the Grow Towers’ platform in the first place can be a game-ender considering the curvature of the building’s base kept user ‘WOAHderWOAHder’ stuck until he died.

After pinging their team’s next move on the screen, the player went up the tower’s half-pipe entrance but couldn’t clear the landing. Instead of being denied entry, they were just locked in mid-air, unable to move.

They were spamming buttons to try and dislodge themselves from the death spot, even crouching to move the character’s model. But all that did was give them a look through the Apex map into the void down below.

Eventually, the map dealt a killing blow to the Lifeline without a chance to escape the situation, and other people might have gone through similar scenarios.

Though they look harmless, Apex’s Grow Towers have been known to be deadly.

“Swear to God, I fucking hate climbing up on the Grow Towers! That first curve that you have to deal with is sooo annoying,” one said in response.

Though the loot at the Grow Towers makes it a worthwhile detour in a match, there are some risks involved that players will want to think about before rotating over there.

It’s unclear how to replicate this bug in Apex to best know when it could strike, but it’s only a matter of time before Respawn catches wind of the death spot and do a quick job of patching it.
