Respawn Entertainment has built up quite the reputation for flexing their creative muscles in Apex Legends. But, fans’ own efforts are just as good, and could be perfect for Season 4.

While Apex Legends has taken the battle royale genre by storm for its fluid movement system and fast-paced, character-driven gameplay, Respawn have changed the cosmetic meta by incorporating a plethora of goodies for fans.

From a seemingly endless option of Legend customization to an abundance of weapon skins, the developers behind the Apex Games have treated fans to plenty of additional cosmetics since launch.

There’s always room for more though, and players have their own ideas about new outfits for their favorite Legends. Here’s just some of the best ahead of Season 4.

Octane (Luchador)

Reddit user ‘neen87’ has infused Octane’s heritage with Mexican wrestlers with their skin concept. 

Combining the Adrenaline Junkie’s base character model with a cape and wreslting mask, the skin was lapped up by the Apex Legends community — achieving over 1.1k upvotes.

Snow Day Octane

Artist, ‘Wolfdawgartcorner’ has also put their stamp on an Octane skin. A skin fit for an Arctic expedition, ‘Snow Day’ would be the perfect attire for World’s Edge’s Epicenter.

Crypto (Tae Joon Park)

Self-proclaimed loremaster, ‘FrozenFroh’ has delivered simple Crypto design which has ties into the Surveillance Expert’s past (before going rogue after his sister mysteriously vanished).

Although a simple render on, the skin idea stems from Crypto’s previous identity as Tae Joon Park. Given that Respawn have been keen to tie into character lore with their character skins (i.e., Wraith Voidwalker), Tae Joon might be an ideal way to spruce the latest Legend.

Hype Beast Wattson

Reddit user ‘_artem155_’ has created a ‘Hype Beast’ skin for Wattson, which appears to be inspired from Crypto’s new Grand Soirée skin.

Given Wattson’s technological proficiency, the skin – which is complete with LEDs embedded in the collar – arguably suits her character more than Crypto. Having gained almost 10k upvotes and a reply from a Respawn developer, a ‘Hype Beast’ render of Wattson could make its way into World’s Edge at some point throughout Season 4.

Putrid Plague Doctor Caustic

Another entry from the talents of Wolfdawgartcorner, a play on an experiment gone wrong, the notorious plague doctor from the 17th century is fitting attire for Apex Games’ very own mad scientist.

Given Respawn’s interaction with the Apex Legends’ community, fans everywhere continue to post their creative efforts. Who knows, perhaps one of the above concepts will be available in Respawn’s flagship battle royale at some point in the future.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
