One Apex Legends player might well have given Respawn Entertainment some food for thought after revealing their unbelievable Pathfinder skin concept, which would make for a perfect addition to Season 4 in a future event. 

Just like other huge titles like Overwatch, League of Legends, and Fortnite, character cosmetics have been hugely popular since Apex first released in February 2019, with members of the community looking to collect as many as they can – particularly for the legends that are their mains.

Now, players who regularly jump into the Apex Games as Pathfinder will know the character has had many incredible skins already, including Omega Point, Quicksilver, and more. However, this concept may also be a perfect alternative to one of the character’s other outfits, according to its creator.

Legendary skins often completely change what the original character looks like – as seen here with Pathfinder’s Iron Crown event style. 

Some skins are brought out in sets, too, meaning that they have different styles and colors. One Reddit user, LennySpice, has identified War Machine as one that potentially could have an opposite number, and boy did they deliver with their very own concept design.

Posting to the Apex Legends subreddit on March 8, the user revealed that they had named their creation “Stealth Machine” and added: “Always thought there should be a skin opposite to War Machine so I made one.”

One thing that they did admit, though, is that the skin concept isn’t really as “goofy” as others that Pathfinder has, which is probably true. With that being said, it would be nice to see Respawn mix it up in a similar way.

As seen in the image above, the robot character takes a completely different look, with an almost bug-like shell – similar to a Scizor for those who have watched Pokemon – but in jet black instead.

Just like many other astonishing fan creations, it’s worth noting that it is very unlikely to ever seen them appear in-game. One thing that could happen, though, is that developers may release something similar in the future for fans to grab.

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.

Pathfinder mains have been begging for a change to his grapple cooldown.

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.
