Apex Legends player comes up with perfect revamp for Mirage’s abilities

A proposed tune-up for Mirage’s ability kit in Apex Legends would give the Holographic Trickster better ways to use his decoys for brilliant bamboozles in the battle royale.

Respawn have retooled their Legends numerous times since launching the game back in February 2019. Depending on if a character is performing too well or is irrelevant among players, the devs will plan accordingly to buff them up.

This is something that’s happened a few times to Mirage, one of the original characters in Apex Legends. In the past, the devs have reworked things like his ult and passives, which proved to be less than stellar in application.

Giving Mirage some buffs that other Legends have received could be a helpful addition.

With a major Mirage rework reportedly on the way for Season 5, user ‘wicked_fool’ gave an incredible idea for the developers to potentially consider if they’re looking to give the character meaningful power.

In this concept, his Tactical Ability ‘Totally Psyched Out” gives Mirage’s decoys a life of their own, in a sense. Although they wouldn’t be controlled, the holograms would be able to do basic leaps and bounds on the environment.

Whether it be a zip line, ladder or balloon, the decoy would interact with these objects to help sell the illusion of a retreating player. Although the idea says there would be no cooldown with using the ability, wicked_fool admitted that giving it a 2-second delay would help to keep it from being spammed.

Meanwhile, Sleight of Hand would let the Trickster to be cloaked while using consumables and even reviving a teammate.

Legends like Gibraltar are starting to get special tools for reviving, and having one for Mirage wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

It should be noted that the idea’s creator makes a distinction between being invisible and being cloaked so that he’s “not totally invisible but semi transparent.”

Mirage’s Ultimate has gotten buffed a few times since launch.

The proposed Ultimate might be familiar with Apex players who’ve explored the Mirage Voyage. It would deploy five holograms that “mirror your actions” so as to distract the competition.

Expect Mirage to have a huge presence once his rework lands in Apex Legends especially if it resembles the kinds of upgrades in this concept.

Apex Legends leaks hints at vehicles coming in Season 7

Some new leaked animations in Apex Legends are potentially hinting at vehicles coming to the popular battle royale title in Season 7.

As far as battle royale games go, Apex Legends is one of the last that doesn’t offer players vehicles for faster rotation and to hit different areas of the map quicker. The likes of Warzone and Fortnite have had vehicles for mobility for a long time at this point, while Apex players haven’t had that opportunity.

That said, always looking for ways to offer fans something fresh and exciting in the game, the Apex devs appear to be following suit, if recent leaks are anything to go by.

On top of a weapon charm, some new animations definitely look to prove that we’re getting vehicles sooner rather than later.

As shared by renowned dataminer Shrugtal on Twitter, the Ride Share charm has two passenger seats alongside the driver’s seat, and it’s a hover vehicle.

That’s not all, though: he found some new animations that all but confirm the existence of vehicles in the Apex Games.

As you can see in this tweet below, there are animations in the 6.1 patch for a driver and passenger hovering while seated — perfectly fitting for a Hover Vehicle.

As many people have pointed out, the current Apex Legends maps, World’s Edge and Kings Canyon, are a fair share smaller than maps in other battle royale titles, so vehicles may not be as fitting in the game as they are in others. One common theory is that the vehicles may be on rails, similar to the train, rather than being drivable for players to freely traverse the map.

However, the new Olympus map has been speculated about for months now, so it is absolutely possible that they come into the game purely for that — also suggesting that Olympus will be the game’s biggest map yet.

Right now, we can’t confirm for absolute certainty that this means vehicles will be coming to the game, and we should never take leaks as gospel, but it wouldn’t be surprising to see this happen. The big question is how it all plays out.
