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 dev reveals brutal finisher they scrapped from the game

Apex Legends dev Moy Parra has revealed a finisher for Bloodhound that was scrapped before the launch of the battle royale – and it might be the most gruesome one we’ve seen.

With each new season in Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment releases a new legend, tonnes of skins and cosmetics in the battle pass, and as we’ve seen more recently, quest lines to further the story of the Apex Games.

These new legends, skins, and items, as we’ve seen before, are typically in development way before they are released and end up finding their way onto the internet either through leaks or official reveals from Respawn themselves. 

However, there’s also a lot that gets left on the cutting room floor. Ideas for the legends that don’t quite fit, or skins that maybe don’t quite match some of the extravagant looks that already in-game.

Bloodhound has become one of Apex’s most powerful legends over the last few seasons.

The same goes for animations surrounding things like finishing moves. Typically, this can be because they cause bugs and other issues, but sometimes it can be because a move is way too over the top. 

Apex Legends dev Moy Parra, who has revealed some scrapped content before, showed off one of the scrapped finishers for Bloodhound that went a bit over the top. 

The dev showed that one of the initial ideas for Bloodhound would have the legend finish enemies off by sticking a pole into their head. If you think that sounds bad, it gets worse. The technological tracker would also pull on the pole, seemingly beheading their downed opponent. 

As Parra notes, that type of execution might have stuck around if Apex received a similar mature rating as Titanfall, but instead, the battle royale is only a Teen rated title. 

There might be some scope to add more finishers for each legend in the future, but they certainly won’t be as explicit as some of the first ideas that Respawn had.
