Season 6 is now underway in Apex Legends, with more new content than players know what to do with. But the new season is only the beginning, and leakers have found even more on the way, including heirlooms apparently releasing for two Legends.

Heirlooms are the rarest items in Apex Legends, and you have to get very lucky to get your hands on one, through heirloom shards, or just endless Apex packs.

So far, Wraith, Pathfinder, Bloodhound, Lifeline, Mirage, and Octane have heirlooms, with more for the other Legends expected, and according to leaks, Bangalore and Caustic are up next.

Surprisingly, it appears that both of these heirlooms will be added within the same season, as the leakers dug through the game files from the Season 6 update.

Previously there has been on heirloom per season (Wraith’s was available at launch), but new game files for Season 6 feature code for two Legends’ heirlooms.

Bangalore and Caustic heirlooms leaked

These leaks come courtesy of two reliable data miners, Shrugtal and Biast12. Posting the code on Twitter, they revealed not only that these would be next heirlooms, but also exactly what they are, and the events that would bring them

Bangalore heirloom

According to Biast12, the Bangalore heirloom will be a ‘Tonfa’ – commonly used as police and military batons. This definitely fits in with her character, and even some of her Legendary skins specifically.

Here’s an example of a Tonfa (note: this isn’t Bangalore’s heirloom – just an example):

Caustic Heirloom

For Caustic, his heirloom is coming with an upcoming collection event, called ‘Aftermarket’, according to Shrugtal. The code states “Unlock the Caustic Heirloom Set for free when you complete the Aftermarket collection.”

As for what it will be, Biast12 found code indicating some form of Sledgehammer named ‘Deadly/Death Hammer’ or ‘Lethal Hammer”.

There’s no time frame for when these heirlooms will be added, or when the collection event begins. However, the leakers suggest that both should arrive in Season 6, because it’s unlikely the code would be added so early for something coming in Season 7.

It’s possible that Bangalore’s heirloom will release outside of a collection event, or possibly even a new kind of event is planned for Season 6. We’ll have to wait and see.

As with all leaks, it must be noted that things can change in development.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
