Apex Legends data miners have revealed some of the new cosmetics coming in the unannounced Aftermarket collection event – including an incredible looking skin for Loba. 

With Apex Legends Season 6 finally here, fans of Respawn’s battle royale have been able to get to grips with the new legend in Rampart, the World’s Edge fortified map, and the new Volt SMG. 

Though there is plenty of new content in the season, some fans are already looking to the future and what’s on the horizon – especially when it comes to an all-new collection event. 

Data miners have already been able to get their hands on the name of the new event, which is called Aftermarket, and have gone deeper and find a few more details.

The new Apex Legends season has given fans the chance to finally play as Rampart.

That includes reliable leaker Shrugtal who, after finding the name and possible start date of September 15, managed to find a whole host of new cosmetics.

The biggest of which, that they were able to find, was a new skin for Loba. There’s no real name for the skin but in the image that the leaker provided, she’s wearing a black, light blue, white, and purple outfit. 

But, the colors aren’t just static, they’re active. They glow and flow around the Translocating Thief’s outfit as she moves around. 

On top of that, the leaker also revealed two new weapon skins – one for the Triple Take sniper rifle and another for the Longbow. 

Like the Loba skins, they both have animations when you equip them in-game, however, the leaker didn’t reveal those in their posts. 

As well as Shrugtal’s leaks, Biast12 also revealed that a music pack was also found in the files with the Aftermarket name attached.

Sadly, though, they can’t be accessed just yet so there’s no early indication of what new tunes you’ll be descending into the games listening to.

In addition to those, Shrugtal also noted that there were six new unused skin names added to the files that they suspect to be for the collection event. Though, that is unconfirmed. 

There are also strings of code for a Caustic heirloom which had been leaked previously alongside one for Bangalore. 

With the collection event on the horizon, we’ll just have to see what Respawn has cooked up in the form of additional cosmetics.

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.
