Apex Legends’ Octane becomes a pirate in swashbuckling skin idea

Apex Legends is already set to release some wild new cosmetics during its Lost Treasures Collection Event, but that hasn’t stopped one fan from coming up with his own incredible Octane skin concept.

Octavio “Octane” Silva is fast and quirky. According to Respawn Entertainment’s lore, the speedster is an adrenaline junkie with a penchant for using drugs to enhance his quickness—fittingly, considering his parents own a pharmaceutical company.

He’s got a prosthetic leg (two, in fact), adores violence, and has a proclivity toward black-and-white motifs (like the sharp teeth emblazoned on his face mask). He already screams big pirate energy, but a fan’s new idea would turn him into the finest corsair on land.

Octane’s face mask has some creepy sharp teeth in black and white.

While the classic pirate look is nautical and earth-toned, Octane’s default appearance is technological and neon: creepy glowing eyes, fluorescent green tubes, and Matrix headjack-esque round ports on his abdomen. 

Reddit’s ‘MoberRPG’ decided to go in an entirely new direction, presumably guided by the North Star, for the battle royale’s most notorious user of performance enhancing drugs. In his “Land Shark” iteration, Octane rocks a pirate’s trademark vest, cut-off breeches, and bandana—all in reddish or brown hues.

Dissatisfied with stopping there, they also added some tremendous details. Aside from replacing the character’s face mask with a shark’s jaw and teeth, they also added two details that are sure to shiver some timbers: a wooden peg leg instead of one of his prosthetics and a miniature cask on his belt, likely to hold some rum. 

And then you add on the anchor and Jolly Roger tattoos, making this a fantastic, hilarious idea for a character whose outfits have yet to truly embrace humor.

Octane’s Jade Tiger skin is easily one of the legend’s best.

Octane already does have some sick skins. Jade Tiger is like a revamped Power Ranger while Extreme Measures could steal the show at the X-Games, but he could use one that leans on the funnier side of things.

Already a weird character who enjoys performance-altering inebriation, why not follow MoberRPG’s lead and give the speedster some classic seafaring garb…and a bottle of rum?

Apex Legends dev confirms fix coming for frustrating Season 7 Clubs bug

The Apex Legends community has been encountering a bizarre bug that’s randomly kicking people out of their Club, even if they were the one to create the group in the first place – and Respawn is on the case.

The hyped Season 7 feature finally let Apex players initiate randos into recurring squadmates by inviting them into the social hub for friends. This was integrated for the purposes of growing communities and making teams easier to fill.

But now, some Club creators are getting kicked out of their own group and even finding that the guilds they made are getting deactivated with little explanation to account for.

While Clubs can get instantly deleted if they’re found with inappropriate names or the like, players have been reporting no such infractions while still getting ousted from their org.

Got removed from my own club that i created? my friend who is admin was not even online in the past few hours. and cant find any club if i click find club. Other clubs got deleted aswell? from apexlegends

“My club was up since Season 7 dropped,” user ‘IIIOxygenRSC’ wrote. “No offensive name or tag, no offensive text chat, usernames or anything. Logged onto apex today with a notification that said my club had been deleted by club admins. Anyone else or any idea why?”

It’s been happening more to different people, prompting Respawn Entertainment to take a closer look at what could be causing the problematic trend.

Clubs Designer at Respawn, Chad Armstrong gave a little comfort to people who’ve been dealing with the glitch: “Thanks for letting me know. We’re looking into this now.”

Now that the developers are on the case, it could soon lead to a meaningful fix to why people are getting met with a random ‘Exited Club’ notification as soon as they log into the game.

“Several players are reporting that they were removed from their club by the admins, even if THEY were the admins,” The Dot’s Pedro Peres said. “This is probably a major bug with Apex and I know Respawn will push out a fix for it ASAP.”

Though his incident was quickly resolved, more players have been wondering if that would be the case with them as well.

The Apex devs could be working on a speedy fix for Clubs to make sure their new Season 7 feature is working without a hitch.
