Apex Legends players have begun encountering dragons in King’s Canyon

Several Apex Legends players have reported seeing dragons, officially called Flyers in-game, flying around King’s Canyon, possibly indicating they will play a big role in the upcoming second season.

Through datamines and timely reveals from Respawn themselves, players have at least had an indication flyers would be coming to Apex Legends eventually. 

It now looks like that day has arrived as many players have reported seeing dragons flying around in the world. Season 2 is just right around the corner so this does make sense.

Dragons have arrived

Numerous players have uploaded videos to social media showing that flyers do exist in Apex Legends but they are currently just flying around and not doing a whole lot.

So far there’s no reason to expect the flyers to be hostile and they actually have been flying around carrying loot for players to get. One player even decided to land on one of them and get the loot.

Respawn likely has something bigger in store for the flyers once Season 2 rolls around but we at least have a better idea with what to expect so far.

If the developers are interested in telling a story with the flyers, this is certainly a good start and it will be interesting to see how this plays out going forward. 

One thing that is worth pointing out is they aren’t all that big just yet, meaning they’ll have a chance to grow larger as the season progressed.

At the very least, it’ll be exciting to see what Respawn has in store for the flyers going forward.

We don’t really know a ton about the lore of Apex Legends but we know the upcoming Legend Wattson’s father build the Apex Arena and now we can throw flyers into the mix.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
