Apex Legends’ creative and colorful world was bound to inspire artwork, but community concepts have become a staple of the game’s fanbase. Here are some of the very best skin concepts from the past month. 

As has become customary in the Apex Legends community, fans of the Titanfall-inspired battle royale have been creating their own skin concepts for their favorite characters. We’ve already seen some incredible entries back in June, but these news skin concepts may trump even those. 

First up is this awesome Bloodhound rework from Klaux ConceptArt, shared to Reddit by u/BIENYY. It’s a snowy, vibrant take on the Technological Tracker, with some deep blues and reds to accompany the dominant white feathers. 

This skin is so good that even non-Bloodhound mains were advocating for its addition to the game. Whether the light color would make players an obvious target remains to be seen, but we’ll let Crypto mains argue this one.

This Bloodhound skin is jaw-dropping.

The second skin is another lighter twist, this time focusing on Loba. Redditor ‘SithArsenal’ explains that the skin is partially inspired by Riot Games’ League of Legends. It’s certainly got a fantasy element to it, adding some light blue magic to the High Society Thief.

Next up is an Aztec inspired Revenant from Redditor ‘Hattori_Handsome‘, which perfectly combines its theme with the skeletal figure of the Season 4 legend. Equally terrifying and mystifying, this is a seriously dark twist on an already dark legend. If you saw this coming over the World’s Edge hill, you’d definitely turn and run.

Finally, from u/ineedahopup, is an eccentric and philanthropic Crypto skin. It sticks to the white color scheme of his base outfit, but ditches the cloak for a white, feather jacket. Pair this with a bowler hat and heavy necklace, and Crypto has been given a truly unique makeover.

So here’s my skin concept for Crypto called E.M.P. (…I don’t know what you heard about me.. you get it XD) from r/apexlegends

Whether Respawn will add a mechanic for fan made skins to get into the game remains to be seen, but there is clearly an appetite for it among the community. Respawn, over to you.

Apex Legends dev confirms Pathfinder grapple change coming in Season 7

An Apex Legends dev has confirmed that Pathfinder’s grapple cooldown is set to undergo a change once the Season 7 patch drops. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, Respawn Entertainment have made changes to each character – be it to make them a more viable option to use, or to bring them back down to earth because they’re too powerful.

These changes typically come at the start of a new season, but when something seems out of place – like Pathfinder’s long grapple cooldown that has caused the pick rate of the typically extremely popular character to dip quite a bit. 

With Season 6 drawing to a close, a change for the cooldown on Pathfinder’s grapple has been the biggest talking point after it was changed from the typical 15 seconds to around 40 seconds.

Pathfinder mains have been begging for a change to his grapple cooldown.

Players have begged Respawn for changes for some time, but with Season 6 drawing to a close, they’ll have to wait until the new season for a change. 

Responding to fan questions on Reddit, Apex Legends dev Daniel Klein confirmed that Pathfinder’s cooldown is in the works. “This patch!” Klein said, responding to a question about changes to the cooldown. “To be clear, that’s the Season 7 patch, coming soon.”

While Klein has given lengthy answers in the past about changes coming to Apex, he didn’t add anything else to his Pathfinder answers, instead, moving to answer questions about other changes as well as detailing why wall-running wouldn’t work in Apex.

On top of the change to Pathfinder, Klein also confirmed that Octane is set for a “tiny buff” with the start of Season 7. Though, he did not hint at what the change to the adrenaline junkie would be. 

However, there isn’t all that long left in terms of a wait to see what Respawn has in store with Season 7. Unless there is a last-minute delay or change, the new patch is set to drop on November 4.
