A fresh Apex Legends leak has revealed an upcoming cosmetic bundle for Pathfinder ahead of season five, as well as a host of brand-new skins for other legends.

When it comes to standing out from the crowd in Apex Legends, there are plenty of ways to do so. Players have the chance to earn badges that track stats, rare banners, and voice lines that allow them to mock an enemy after an elimination.

Though, of course, the best way to stand out from the crowd is to have a whole collection of skins – be it for your chosen legend or your favorite weapons in the battle royale. As season five is approaching, it appears players will soon be able to get their hands on even more exclusive skins.

Pathfinder looks to be grabbing some new skins

Popular Apex Legends leaker iLootGames revealed that there is a Pathfinder cosmetic bundle in the works which is set to include a legend skin, weapon skin, weapon charm, and a badge. The Pathfinder skin has a pretty distinctive Jungle theme to it – while the weapon skin, which is for the Havoc Rifle, is pretty red.

The leaker also revealed that there are new looks for Bloodhound and Gibraltar – known as the ‘Inspectors’ skins – though it’s unclear whether they will be in the store, a Twitch Prime-like exclusive, or a part of an upcoming event. 

iLootGames also showcased the Queen of Hearts look for Wraith that has been floating around for a little while now – taking the usual dark and mysterious legend and giving her a bright red outfit.

Sticking with the red theme, there is a re-color for Wattson that includes some pretty unique features on the arms.

Although the leaker has been pretty up to date with details in the past, he was unable to offer any release dates for these skins, meaning that fans could be in for a waiting game. We’ll just have to see if, and when, Respawn decides to release them.

Apex Legends Season 8 early patch notes: Legends buffs, bug fixes, more

Apex Legends Season 8: Mayhem update is due to drop on February 2, and although patch notes aren’t expected until right before the update goes live, we already know of a bunch of confirmed changes and fixes coming. Here’s an early look at what the patch notes are expected to include.

Obviously, the main changes will be the addition of the new Legend, Fuse, who hails from Salvo, as well as the new weapon – the 30-30 repeater.

Kings Canyon will also be massively changed, as Fuse’s entrance to the Apex games did not go smoothly and his old friend Maggie crashed the party – literally.

But, the most exciting part of the patch notes themselves will be seeing how Respawn has adjusted the various Legends with nerfs and buffs, plus some of the quality of life changes planned.

Apex Legends Season 8: Early patch notes

New Legend: Fuse

Straight from Salvo, Fuse is an explosive Legend, and his abilities reflect this. He can shoot projectiles from his prosthetic arm, and his ultimate will shoot a mortar-like missile, which explodes into a ring of fire.

New Weapon: 30-30 Repeater

We didn’t get a new weapon in Season 7, but we are in Season 8. Fuse brings the 30-30 repeater straight from Salvo. It’s a lever-action rifle that packs a punch.

Kings Canyon map changes

The arrival of Fuse has obliterated Kings Canyon. Original POIs including Slum Lakes and Artillery have been destroyed, and there is a new hue to the map.

New Season 8 Battle Pass: Mayhem

As always, there will be a fresh battle pass for the new season, which will include over 100 items.

We don’t know if there will be any changes to the battle pass system yet, like there was in Season 7.

Legend changes

These are the Legend buffs and nerfs that Respawn have said will be coming in Season 8. Check out a full explanation and details on each change here.

Note: This is not a final list of all Legends that are getting changes in the Season 8 update.

Rampart

  • Adding 45 health to her Amped Cover

Wraith

  • Respawn say they are looking at changes to Wraith’s hitbox, to bring her in line with other Legends.

Horizon

  • Respawn are looking at nerfs to her tactical ability, but haven’t confirmed the exact changes they’re making yet.

Revenant

  • Respawn have been struggling to find a good buff for Revenant, but are looking at hitbox adjustments

Wattson

  • Respawn are looking for ways to make Wattson more fun, without making her more powerful

Mirage

  • Fix for decoys making footstep noise – this was originally in the Fight Night patch notes, but has been removed and will be coming in a future update, possibly with Season 8.

Caustic

  • Caustic hammer breaking doors – this was also originally in the Fight Night patch notes, but has been removed and will be coming in a future patch, possibly with Season 8.

Quality of Life

  • In-game damage tracker added

Bug Fixes

  • Heirloom store not showing all Heirlooms
  • Players told they are buying Gibraltar’s Heirloom when buying Caustic’s Heirloom
  • Legend skins for Mirage and Bangalore affecting aim down sights
  • Errors relating to private matches
  • Players can’t hear each other in cross-play lobbies

Ranked Play

A new Ranked Series will begin at the start of Season 8: Ranked Series 7. We expect that there will be two splits in the season again, with the first probably on World’s Edge. It’s unlikely that the new Kings Canyon features in Ranked, until players are used to the changes.

Season 8 Collection Event

Data miners have uncovered files related to an Anniversary Collection Event in Season 8. Although collection events typically start midway through the Season, this time it could potentially start earlier, given that the 2-year anniversary of Apex Legends is February 4 – two days after Season 8 starts.


That’s everything we know at the moment about what’s coming in the Season 8 update patch notes.

We’ll keep you updated with more changes as they come, and of course when Respawn releases the full patch notes.
