The Harvester has proven to be a perfect hot drop location in Apex Legends Season 4, with a whole bunch of loot to be found there, and now players have discovered a really sneaky hiding spot that more should probably know about. 

A number of new locations and map features have been added since the game’s last major update on February 4, some of which have more supply bins spawning there than others.

When it comes to the Harvester, there’s a total of 24 supply bins and a boat load of floor loot to be found, meaning that fights are a common occurrence in the early stages of most games at this point of interest. However, a new hiding spot that’s been discovered might be really useful for those looking to avoid enemy contact – or to take an enemy by surprise.

There are two really devastating ways of dying at the hands of the Harvester, a massive cylindrical structure that extracts minerals from the ground: either dropping into the lava in the middle of it or running right into its beam from the outset.

Though, a new hiding spot, found by Reddit user im_not_EM, allows players to hide right where others may never expect to find them – around the ring that sits just above the molten rock beneath.

As seen in the clip below, when careful enough, players can squeeze onto a rail and walk around the circle, which will be pretty useful to know for those who want to hide from danger.

It’s unclear as to whether this trick works for players who have been knocked down by enemies, although that could be a really good way of using the rail to hide – when damaged or in a situation where you have to heal up. After all, there’s nothing worse than being knocked down while using a Syringe, Shield Cell or Phoenix Kit.

While some players expressed interest in the trick, one wasn’t best pleased about the post. “Damn bro why you gotta show people my spot like that,” they said, to which the poster replied: “This won’t go top [of] hot, trust me.”

Whether or not this will be used much more frequently now, having been posted online in front of a large audience, remains to be seen. Nevertheless, it could certainly help in situations where you would rather hide than reveal yourself at the Harvester.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
