Apex Legends YouTuber leaks Season 7 lobby & Horizon skin on accident

An Italian Youtuber seems to have accidentally shared embargoed footage of the upcoming Apex Legends Season 7’s lobby, challenges, and even a brand new skin for the yet-to-be-released Horizon character.

Apex Legends Season 7 is set to kick off on November 4, and with everyone itching to get a look at all of the new content headed our way, some of it may have been unveiled a tad bit too early.

As is the case before pretty much every new season, some of the game’s more prominent content creators are given early access to try out and record the new content for their YouTube channels, which can’t be released before a specified date.

For S7, that date was Monday, November 2, but, on October 31, YouTuber Mox600 inadvertently uploaded a shot of Horizon with her new outfit skin standing in the revamped lobby, before he quickly made the video private.

In the leaked video, we see a mohawked, neon Horizon who’s also rocking some goggles and what seems to be body armor as well. Let’s just say it’s a good thing Olympus seems to have plenty of color going on because this one might stick out like a sore thumb on maps like Kings Canyon and World’s Edge.

Because Respawn won’t start selling new items for her until the season gets going, this cosmetic is most likely a Battle Pass skin, maybe even the one players unlock in the final Tier.

Apex’s pre-game lobby has a fresh new look as well, as it seems to actually be outside in the streets of Olympus, with the brand new Season 7 map serving as a backdrop for player banners.

Along with these we also got a look at the new STARS system. Combined with match XP, the STARS will contribute to a repeatable weekly challenge that grants a full Battle Pass level with each completion. This XP is specific to Battle Pass, meaning it won’t impact Account Level progression.

While this definitely appears to be a legit leak of upcoming Season 7 content, in the grand scheme of things there’s still a lot of actual gameplay to see as we get ready to head into Olympus, so we wouldn’t really consider this that massive of a spoiler.

Exactly what will be included in the upcoming Battle Pass should be soon revealed as well, but at least we got a look at one of the skins that’ll likely be featured, and if it’s anything to go by, Season 7 might be a doozy.

Simple Apex Legends tip gives Horizon OP movement and height

Horizon can already soar to new heights thanks to her powerful Gravity Lift tactical ability, but if you combine it with Octane’s jump pad, she gets some nifty movement abilities. 

There are plenty of factors that go into an Apex Legends win – and it all starts with picking the right characters. The selection can depend on how you want to play the game, but you can just follow the meta and use the most powerful legends, too. 

Some legends, ultimately, work better when paired with others because their abilities can be combined to deal a whole boatload of damage in a fight, or, if you’re one for hanging back, you can find where the next safe zones are going to be. 

In the case of Horizon, who only joined the game in Season 7, she fits well with most legends, but if you pair her with Octane, she can really soar to new heights – quite literally.

Being able to master a legend like Horizon is just one part of the puzzle in Apex.

Just like with Loba in Season 6, Horizon has a tactical ability that is perfect to pair with Octane. Unlike Loba, you don’t want to throw her Gravity Lift directly onto the Jump Pad, but rather, nearby. 

As Reddit user methylin1337 pointed out, by doing so, you can then launch yourself off the Jump Pad and into the path of the Gravity Lift. This when they send you soaring to heights that, previously, you couldn’t reach with Horizon. 

On top of the bonus height – which makes Horizon difficult to hit – she can also use her soft landing and Octane’s double jump to make incredible leaps. If you can master it, you can really bamboozle enemies.

Of course, not everyone is going to have the movement skills needed to really make the pair worthwhile, but if you do, it can be an incredible duo. 

It’s worth trying out at the very least, just to see what results you come out with if anything. It could be perfect for your team, and you don’t even know it.
