Apex Legends writer Tom Casiello has confirmed that a sequel to Season 5’s Broken Ghost quest was scrapped, explaining why Bangalore has taken a back seat in Season 6. 

Fans of Bangalore were especially excited for Season 6 after Casiello, back in July, said that the Professional Soldier would be “front and center” in the Apex Legends narrative.

He suggested that a major storyline regarding Bangalore would be explored in the game’s sixth season. However, when it dropped on August 18, there was not a lot to be found, leaving some fans disappointed.

Bangalore has spent much of her Apex Legends life on the sideline, despite being a launch character.

He was asked about the Bangalore back story by one Apex player on October 4 and, in answering the question, revealed the Broken Ghost sequel “never saw the light of day”.

“Ah yes…back when I was writing the Broken Ghost sequel that never saw the light of day,” Casiello responded. “What lesson did we learn back then, kids? That at any given moment in gaming, everything can change and that thing you were working on doesn’t actually exist anymore.”

Instead, Season 6 still had a quest, but not in the same way as it was carried out in Season 5. Instead of gameplay segments, they moved to a comic book format, with new comics coming out each week up until the final ‘First Ship’ in week 7.

While Bangalore fans will still be disappointed with the shelving of back story for their favorite legend, game development is always subject to changes, as Respawn regularly shake things up even as they go.

There is some good news for Bangalore mains though, as leakers claim she’s next in line to get an Heirloom, after Caustic.

And, fans can still expect a focus on Bangalore’s back story at some point in the future, even if it doesn’t come in Season 6.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
