The popular battle royale game, Apex Legends, features many unique playable characters with different abilities and fans have even designed their own skin concepts for their favorite in-game legends.

There are currently nine unlocked characters in Apex Legends (with more to come) and they all have plenty of skin options to choose from, which players can either unlock with crafting materials or in Apex Packs.

The skins can range from common to legendary, as they vary in different outfits styles and changes in color for each legend.

With the latest announcements and trailers revealing the release of Apex Legends Season Two, it is expected that Respawn will also be adding new skins for players to buy (through Apex Packs or the store), and it is possible we may even see some fan-made skins added to the game.

Here’s some of the best fan-made skin concepts for Apex Legends.

Bloodhound

There has been no shortage of skin concepts for this legend already including Terminator and Predator inspired designs but this design by u/SonaHarpLadyy might be the most accurate representation of a “Bloodhound” there can be, taking the character’s name literally with this incredible concept.

This skin concept stayed true to the name “Bloodhound.”

Players feel that Bloodhound’s current legendary skins are somewhat lacking, however, the style of this new skin concept by “fragdar” has received nothing but praise since it was shared and would also be a great addition to the game.

This hooded skin concept would be a great addition to Apex Legends.

The final Bloodhound skin on the list is by u/blodhundur, this unique take on the legend also received a lot of love from Bloodhound mains and would be one of the more original skins if it was to be added in Apex Legends.

This skin is just terrifying!

Octane

Octane is probably the most eccentric character in Apex Legends currently and this unusual dinosaur themed skin concept “Old Bones” by u/clarksabino fits the legend perfectly and could easily be a legendary skin.

This “Old Bones” concept would fit right in with Apex Legends.

This new skin design titled “Dr. Octane” from u/siriuspetrovik portrays the popular legend as a doctor and many fans have welcomed the idea to see Octane sprinting around with a lab coat on.

Paging Doctor Octane to King’s Canyon.

Mirage

Mirage is one the characters who could also do with some more high tier legendary skins and this “Mirage in a box” skin concept by u/BobTheTankEngine could be just what this holographic trickster needs if done well.

Surprise!

Bangalore

Bangalore’s current skin offerings are much less exotic than some of the other legendary skins in the game, but this new look by u/catchthirtythree33 would certainly have Bangalore mains excited.

In her right hand is a knife – which could perhaps be an heirloom similar to Wraith’s knife.

A more deadly and fierce looking weapons expert.

This Bangalore skin concept by Michal Salata remains true to her original style as the professional soldier and is appropriately named ‘Bandziora’ as it features a yellow and black guerrilla style theme.

This Bangalore skin concept might be the best yet.

Wraith

These hooded and masked editions of the fan favorite legend Wraith by u/-s0et- are not too far off her base look, which makes it all the more likely that we could see some similar skins added to Apex Legends in future.

This Wraith skin could allow players to change styles.

With the release of Season 2 quickly approaching it is unlikely that any of these new skin concepts will be added, although many fans are hoping that Respawn will take inspiration from some of their designs for future releases.

They have promised that cosmetics will be much improved for Season 2, but we’ll have to wait and see if they live up to that promise.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
