NRG pro Coby ‘Apex Legends fans a painful reminder of just how long it has been since the devs added new content, with a snappy response to Respawn’s May 16 post.

If there is one primary criticism about Apex Legends among the fanbase, it’s the slower updates and new content when compared to other games in the battle royale genre, namely Fortnite Battle Royale.

Many players complained about the underwhelming Battle Pass after having to wait for Season 1. Some who play daily will have already completed their Battle Pass by this point too, and are left waiting until June before Season 2 drops.

Apex Legends content has dried up

Respawn revealed players would be getting information about Season 2 during E3 2019, leaving players to wonder about what’s next for the game for about another month.

The official Apex Legends Twitter account put out a tweet showing off a short Pathfinder clip, linking to their lore for the character, indicating it is now day 725 of his search about finding who created him. Of course, this opened the door for a potshot about the lack of content, which dizzy took complete advantage of.

While it hasn’t quite been 725 days since new content, it has still been a while since something meaningful came to Apex Legends. Since launch, only one new gun and one new legend has been added.

Season 2 will look to fix this, but it might end being a classic case of too little, too late. Unless something major is in the works, it will prove difficult to please players constantly looking out for the next new thing.

What’s coming with Season 2?

Respawn promised major changes with Season 2, starting with the Battle Pass. The team said the Battle Pass will come with more meaningful content, a new Legend, a new weapon and also teased map changes. 

Twitch streamer shroud warned players not to get their hopes up about the new Legend, Wattson, revealing that he has played him, but it might just be because he didn’t like how he played.

“I didn’t hate it, I just didn’t like it,” he said. “That’s all. It’s like me playing Caustic, I just don’t like him.”

Regardless, a new legend of any kind will be a welcome addition, and players may just have to get used to the slower burn of Respawn’s content plans.

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.

Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.

Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
