Respawn Entertainment has unveiled the official trailer for Apex Legends Season 4: Assimilation, which included a first look at some of the new outfit skins and weapon camos that will be available in the Battle Pass.

Apex Legends players have already been getting hints and previews for what’s to come in Season 4, which kicks off on Tuesday, February 4.

Following the official launch trailer for the newest legend on January 30, Respawn gave fans an early look at some of the cosmetics coming for the Season 4 Battle Pass.

There were three named skins included in the Battle Pass portion of the Season 4 gameplay video, one each for Wraith, Lifeline, and Wattson.

Starting with Wraith, her new Battle Pass skin is called ‘Perfect Soldier,’ of Legendary quality.

The skin itself definitely seems to be inspired by Apex’s newest legend Revenant, giving Wraith robot limbs, glowing purple eyes, and cables where her hair would be if she were still human.

The picture below, also for the same skin, includes a fiery weapon camo that could also be featured in the Battle Pass, although Respawn didn’t confirm that in the trailer.

Wraith definitely seems to have some cyborg “upgrades” in this skin.

Lifeline’s Battle Pass skin is called ‘Health Drain’ and gives her base skin a sort-of magenta recolor.

Sticking with the cyborg theme for the debut of Revenant, Lifeline also gets a few cybernetic enhancements on her neck, but she hasn’t gone full robot like Wraith.

The final named skin is for Wattson, called ‘Cyberpunked,’ doesn’t make the legend completely into another bot, but it does give her a cool leather jacket and even an eyepatch.

Her legs have been replaced with what definitely seem to be robot legs though going along with Revenant and the “Assimilation” theme for Season 4.

Wattson would fit right into Cyberpunk 2077 with this skin.

Along with all of the named Battle Pass skins for Season 4, a number of other skins were previewed in the Feb 3 trailer as well, but it’s unknown whether or not they’ll be included in the Battle Pass

At the beginning of the trailer, we get a brief look at a startling white Crypto skin that makes him resemble one of the droids trying to kill Will Smith in “I, Robot.”

Crypto could also pass as a Borg from Star Trek with this look.

Towards the end of the trailer, we get a good look at skins for Caustic and Revenant before they take out the cameraperson.

Caustic’s green getup seems to be reflective but Revenant’s goat-headed horror of a skin is sure to stick around in your nightmares long after he takes out your squad.

The last thing anyone will want to see during Season 4.

Along with the legend skins, there were also a few previews for upcoming weapon camos as well, but like the unnamed skins, it’s currently unknown whether the camos will be included in the Battle Pass.

A clean, white R-99 skin was shown off, along with what looks like an adorable little Nessie charm. The other weapon camo was an orange one for the Devotion LMG.

The Devotion’s camo is orange and black, and may have a glow effect.

Apex’s Season 3 Battle Pass cost 950 Apex Coins (around $9.50) which means there’s a good chance that’s what Season 4’s will cost players as well.

Judging by how many quality outfit skins, weapon camos, and other cosmetics skins it will contain, on top of the other bonuses and perks, it’s safe to say that purchasing the Battle Pass will be well worth it.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Pathfinder mains have been begging for a change to his grapple cooldown.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
