A handful of Apex Legends weapon and character skins have been leaked ahead of Season 7 – with some of the most popular weapons getting some fresh looks. 

With the sixth season of Apex Legends almost at its end, players are now looking forward to what Season 7 might have in store for them.

There have been theories about which Legend is set to come next, with numerous rumors and leaks, as well as ideas about how the developers are potentially going to incorporate a new map considering one wasn’t added in Season 6.

While leakers haven’t been able to crack the code completely and reveal everything coming in the new season, some have been able to show a handful of new cosmetics that will be coming soon.

Wraith is, by far and away, Apex’s most popular character.

The new cosmetics were posted by reliable leakers Shrugtal and Biast12, who both noted that the Season 7 related cosmetics came with the ‘Ascension’ tag, possibly confirming the name of the new season too. 

The leaks included first looks at the weapon wraps for the Longbow and Hemlok, with the latter being a purple and green skin that appears to have animated eyes near the barrel of the gun.

However, the only character skin that was revealed was for Wraith. The purple and gold skin looks like a perfect Prime Gaming reward, but it is likely to be in the Battle Pass as a rare.

On top of those, the data miners were also able to reveal two sets of weapon charms – both in the Origami style. One of the sets is for the Leviathans, while the other centers on Prowlers.

Of course, these aren’t all the cosmetics that we can expect to see in Season 7, but it does offer a first look at what Respawn has in store for their next big update. 

Season 7 is set to begin in mid-November, so, we don’t have that long a wait until the devs start dropping teasers and information about the rest of the cosmetics they have lined up.

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.
