The Apex Legends community have created exciting designs for Halloween versions of the battle royale cast, and here are some of the best from talented fans.

Respawn Entertainment’s seasonal cosmetics have always been among the more beloved releases for the community. From the Monster Mashed Gibby skin to Deadly Byte Crypto, there have been some incredible Halloween designs from the studio.

But Apex fans have also been contributing with their ideas to the pot for Legend designs that would be excellent entries in the game’s already impressive array for Halloween releases.

Some of the community’s designs touch on all kinds of themes and inspirations. There’s traditional spooky takes, adorable renditions that borrow from the lore, and much more.

Witch Doctor Revenant

Kicking things off will be Reddit user ‘DoodleTeamLeader’s Witch Doctor Revenant design that attaches a ton of Halloween-inspired trinkets and details throughout every inch of the simulacrum.

There are shrunken heads, skulls, a coffin that would launch the Silence device on the wrist, and a snake that wraps around the towering assassin’s neck.

Nessy Watts-zilla

To bleach our eyes with cuteness from that Revenant skin, ‘DhFanarts’ sized up Wattson in a Nessie doll outfit and made it look like she was terrorizing a city like Godzilla.

Ever since the lore expansions in Apex, Nessie dolls and Wattson have been incredibly popular in the community and this immaculately combines the two for what would be a fan-favorite.

Purge Octane

In almost a perfect adaptation for the ADrenaline Junkie, ‘FrostyPenHand’ created an Octane design that was directly inspired by the popular Purge franchise.

The skin shows Octane in a simple hoodie with a spray can that could substitute for his Stim. His mask also reflects the dystopic images from the movie.

Scarecrow Revenant

Artist Mona ‘ZimTDraws’ built a concept for Revenant that uses his lanky frame for a twisted revision of a Scarecrow themed skin.

The design covers the murderous robot in a giant cloak, hat, and tattered pants. It’s a design that really suits the Fall holiday.

Frankenstein Wattson

An artist that goes by ‘bohater13’ recreated Wattson in the theme of Frankenstein’s bride, turning the Static Defender into an electrified monster that calls back to classic Halloween monsters.

The skin would really go well with the Legendary Gibby skin from the Fight or Fright Collection and could continue the trend of Legends redone in a classic movie monster themes.

Jigsaw Revenant

If it hasn’t been clear up until now, people really want a Halloween skin for Revenant. The menacing bot is the embodiment of terror and that shines in this skin inspired by the Saw movie series.

Revenant already has the skulking face that Billy, the iconic doll from the horror movies, can be seen with while riding his accompanying bike. The possibilities for unique voice lines with this skin are boundless.

There’s a lot of hype for this year’s Halloween cosmetics and what Apex Legends skins could be included with them. For now though, these concept designs should hold people over while we wait for news on this year’s seasonal event.

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

New vehicle: The Trident

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.

Apex on Steam

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
