A fresh Apex Legends leak has revealed that there are two new PlayStation exclusive skins in the works – with Crypto and Gibraltar being the characters chosen to don the new looks. 

Every Apex Legends player has got their favorite character to use in each and every match of the battle royale. This can be because of their abilities, their play-style, or because it fits in with their squad’s composition.

As a result of that, fans also use a whole host of different character skins to make their chosen legend stand out from the crowd, whether they’re playing on Kings Canyon or World’s Edge. Some legends have skins that are just a different spin on their base outfit, with the PlayStation exclusive skins fitting into this bracket – rather than giving a character a full makeover.

New leaks from Apex Legends data miner The_Suum has revealed that there are two new PlayStation only skins in the works – with Crypto and Gibraltar the characters receiving the new looks.

As you might expect, the color of the new skins fit in with the classic blue and white color scheme from PlayStation, though it is a slightly lighter shade of blue being used. The leaked skins are pretty identical despite the difference between the two chosen characters.

Previous PlayStation exclusive cosmetic packs have also given players new weapons for different weapons – and looking closely at the image posted by leakers, that could very well be the case here too. 

These packs have been exclusively for PS Plus members in the past, meaning that you aren’t going to be able to get them anywhere else.

Sadly, though, a potential release date for the cosmetic pack hasn’t been offered up, so it could be a little while yet before they’re seen being worn by PlayStation players.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
