A new variant of the Shadowfall limited-time mode looks set to descend on Apex Legends for an upcoming Halloween event, according to new leaks.

Shadowfall is a limited time-mode which first made its appearance during Apex Legends’ Season 3 Fight or Fright Collection event in October 2019.

The LTM is set on the abandoned Kings Canyon map at night, where players have to try and escape the island before being infected by the Shadows.

The infection-style game mode now looks set to return to Apex Legends, after leaks from prominent data miner shrugtal pointed towards a new playlist.

While it was previously leaked that Respawn had been eyeing up a return to the fan-favorite LTM, the new version of Shadowfall seems to have some more twists in-store for Apex players.

Shrugtal shared that a new variant of the game mode called ‘Shadow Royale’ would be released and added that it was expected to go live this Halloween.

“Recent patch data shows that Shadowfall appears to be making a return this Halloween, in a variant called ‘Shadow Royale’.” shrugtal revealed. However, the data miner explained that there was little new information about this variant in the game files yet, meaning that fans will likely have to wait a bit longer to see what awaits.

Although it is expected to go live during Halloween, a release date for the “Shadow Royale” playlist has not been shared as of yet.

Respawn has also yet to officially announce a Halloween event for the popular battle royale but, following the Fight or Fright event in 2019, it is quite possible that another is planned for this year.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
