Apex Legends players have noticed that the giant Leviathans that stand in the seas outside Kings Canyon appear to be moving.

While there has always been curiosity about the purpose of the Leviathans, so far the creatures have done nothing since the game’s launch, and for most players they’re now simply part of the scenery.

As the game’s first season comes to a close and Season Two approaches, however, it seems the Leviathans are on the move, with eagle-eyed players noticing that they appear to have wandered closer to the island.

For those that struggle to see the difference in the locations by sight alone, u/FrozenFroh also offered a top-down look at how their positioning has changed on the map.

So far, all that’s really known for sure about the game’s second season, which is due to kick off on July 2, is some of the new content arriving, such as new Legend Wattson, a new ranked mode, and the new L-Star SMG.

It seems, however, that Respawn might be ramping up to make some more drastic changes to the game, with construction materials found around the map since the Legendary Hunt Limited Time Mode suggesting a Kings Canyon update is on the way.

It also appears that the developers might be looking to introduce an evolving narrative to the game in a similar manner to Fortnite Battle Royale’s seasonal story, with hints that dragons could be appearing in Season Two.

Exactly where the Leviathans might fit into whatever grand schemes Respawn have for the game remains unknown at this time. Perhaps they could be responsible for destruction that will force certain areas to be rebuilt, or maybe their purpose will fit in with whatever the dragons are set to do.

More evidence has been revealed to back up the fact Leviathans are on the move and this time it comes from Respawn themselves.

The developers posted on the Apex Legends Instagram page that one of the Leviathans, named Rosie, is moving southbound at a rate of ten klicks per hour. It’s hard to tell what the final intent of the Leviathans will be but we will find out in Season 2.

Apex Legends stand by ban after LuLuLuvely reports “innocent” player

Respawn Entertainment have said they stand by a ban ruling that caused controversy in the Apex Legends community, after NRG streamer ‘LuLuLuvely’ reported a player who protested their innocence on Reddit.

After a hacker mowed down a team of streamers including Lulu, the NRG content creator immediately filed a report to Respawn’s security team member Conor ‘Hideouts’ Ford to sort the situation.

According to LuLuLuvely, her claim included a clip that clearly shows the enemy Gibraltar blatantly hacking. However, the person playing Bloodhound alongside Gibby was also ousted.

The Bloodhound, who initially disputed the decision under their Reddit account ‘KongoBoom,’ slammed Respawn and Hideouts for how the process was carried out and reaffirmed their innocence. Their post was titled “Killing streamers got me banned.”

The Bloodhound player in question claimed innocence, but Respawn’s investigation reaffirmed their ban.

“I’m season 6 / 3 predator with more than 30,000 kills you said I was cheating and in the video everything’s clear. The streamer gave my name mistakenly to the developer, in your email you said I was cheating without giving any proof,” they said.

This quickly set off the community. Accusations of a compromised system, favoritism to particular streamers, or lack of proper handling for bans were all brought up.

LuLu apologized to the player on Twitter, and said she would pass the thread along to get it attention. But, there was still anger about the supposed favoritism to address concerns of streamers, before regular players.

But after hours of community in-fighting and apparent “borderline death threats” toward LuLu, Respawn said they were standing by the decision.

“Regarding today’s Reddit thread from a banned Bloodhound (BH) player,” the studio wrote. “BH appeared to have multiple other banned accounts, BH has a history of attempting to evade bans, BH was partied with the cheating Gibraltar. We stand by the ban.”

Initially, KongoBoom expressed their frustration at the sequence of events. While the NRG streamer indicated that she had no intention of the Bloodhound being banned when making the report, the security team at Respawn have decided there was enough evidence to merit the verdict.

Following Respawn’s statement, LuLuLuvely said “Shame on those who sent borderline death threats to me because of a Reddit post from the guy claiming he was innocent.”

It should be noted that anyone can access the ‘Cheater Report’ Discord channel that’s handled by Hideouts, where people can directly submit clips and evidence of a hacker.

Uproar on this topic has devolved to speculation and accusations outside of Apex Legends and Respawn entirely, but the developers have now concluded this chapter of their long-standing battle against cheaters.
