Apex Legends players have been loving the unique revive animation that Wattson brought to the game, resulting in amazing ideas for more Legends to have them.

Respawn Entertainment introduced the tenth Legend for the game on July 2, who instantly became a fan favorite for her cheery personality and gruesome finisher. But she also equipped a revive animation that only works with the Static Defender’s kit.

Since reviving a teammate is a common aspect of the game, various community members gave their ideas of more animations that would compliment different characters’ lore or personality.

Respawn EntertaimentBloodhound’s pet Arthur could be used with some revive animations.

In a September 6 Reddit post, user ‘xXGrimHunterXx’ opened up the floor for people to give their ideas for worthwhile revive animations that would fit different Legends, and the community didn’t disappoint.

“Wattson’s revive animation is really cool,” the user said. “It would be awesome to get different revive animations for the other legends as well!”

The use then went on to give their idea for revives for Bloodhound and Caustic that would reanimate teammates using the trust companion Arthur, as well as dosing a downed ally with adrenaline gas, respectively.

Others chimed in with ideas for more Legends that incorporates their unique Tactical Abilities, such as having Lifeline use one of her D.O.C. Heal Drone’s tentacles to attach to a fallen troop in order to revive them.

Respawn EntertainmentLifeline’s D.O.C. drone could get an upgrade to revive players.

Though some of the most intriguing concepts integrate the Legend’s characteristics, like one user’s idea for Gibraltar to hoist up downed allies and smack them on the back while saying: “no time for rest bruddah.”

Some ideas made a good attempt at repurposing Finishers already in the game such as Octane’s Full Throttle move, but with a twist that would see the Adrenaline Junkie give teammates “five fast ass kicks to the person’s chest” in order to help them up.

While varying revive animations would be great for different Legends, one fan warned that any new styles would have to be tamed in approach: “changing the animations too much could cause problems, like people seeing you around a corner with this certain animation, but not the other one, some animations being harder to hit etc.”

That’s a great point for the developers to consider, since it seems like some people are really loving the idea of new revive animations in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
