Apex Legends fans have revealed their votes for which characters they want to see buffed next in the popular battle royale title.

Apex now has twelve playable characters for fans to pick from, each equipped with their own unique ability kits that can impact a game.

It is not often that all legends are perfectly balanced, however, as players are continuing to come up with innovative new ways to gain advantages on their favorite characters, and as the developers make changes to abilities.

As more and more characters are added to Apex, at a rate of one per season, some of the game’s legends have fallen a little too far behind their counterparts and we asked fans who they think needed a buff next.

Surprisingly there were quite a few changes that the majority of fans agreed on, varying from minor ability changes to massive buffs for certain legends.

One of the most popular requests was for the Holographic Trickster, Mirage, to receive some major buffs and Respawn devs seem to agree after confirming on April 7 that Mirage was due some upgrades in a future update.

Octane was another Legend that fans rallied behind, with many claiming that he was just a little too underpowered in the current state of the game.

Fans of the High-speed daredevil came up with some suggestions for how to improve his kit, such as buffing his ‘Stim’ ability to give him better jumps and faster reloads, to help him keep up against some of the meta picks.

Although Octane and Mirage stood out as two of the favorites, there were also calls for individual abilities such as Bangalore’s ultimate to receive some buffs with claims that her missiles are a bit too slow to explode.

There were some players asking for some changes to be made to Caustic’s Nox Gas abilities, which Respawn has also revealed they are working on, highlighting that the Legend’s kit could affect some of his teammates in crucial situations.

Although some of the fans’ suggestions are always already scheduled to happen, it will be difficult for Respawn to maintain a perfect balance with many more Legends, such as Loba, rumored to be added in the coming seasons and change how games are played.

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.
