An Apex Legends season five teaser has seemingly revealed the huge size of a new location coming to Kings Canyon – and it’s safe to say the map is in for a pretty major makeover. 

Back on April 10, the apparent first teaser for Apex Legends season five was uncovered when fans of the battle royale noticed a strange door at Hydro Dam in Kings Canyon. Since then, there has been a handful of other teasers – each pointing at changes to the original Apex map once season five drops.

As the days have gone on, leakers have uncovered the dates for the future teasers, but others have been focused on what is already out there, and one clever player seems to have pinned down the huge size of the new location.

All signs point to Loba being the newest Legend in Apex Legends Season 5.

Reddit user OrcusDei noted that the first of these teasers asked “How big is this?” with the image of the supposed new location being attached so that had to try and figure out the answer.

The Dome-like shape and accompanying tunnels have appeared in the teasers appear to be taking the place of Wetlands – replacing at least ten buildings and even helping tear down part of the landscape.

The Redditor’s mock seems to nail the new location for Apex.

That would undoubtedly be a huge change to the current layout of Kings Canyon, even though Wetlands isn’t exactly a major hot drop. Though, OrcusDei pointed out that the image they’d mocked up could be different from what Respawn have up their sleeve. 

The tunnels for the new location have been teased as far back as season two, when players could hear banging underneath Wetlands.

However, what Respawn has up their sleeve for changes will only be confirmed once season five goes live. That had been expected to happen on May 7, but it has since been pushed back to May 12.

Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

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.

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).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

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.
