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

It has become commonplace in the Apex Legends community for fans to share their own concept skins for the game’s unique Legends. The creative world conceived by Respawn Entertainment has inspired incredible art and community engagement. Here, we choose our favorite skin concepts from the past month or so.

Crypto Hellslinger

The first is this incredible Crypto ‘Hellsinger’ concept from u/StarDyx, channeling even more yellow and grey into the Surveillance Expert’s look. If Crypto does indeed get the buff many fans are hoping for, this would make him look the part as he seeks to dominate both World’s Edge and Kings Canyon.

Regarding the skin, one Redditor commented that it “looks like a rare and a legendary mix. This is what the epic skins should look like”. It’s certainly epic.

Prestige Loba

Next up is a couple of Loba concepts from u/SithArsenal. The Redditor has crossed the Season 5 legend with League of Legend themes, creating a fantastical take on the High Society Thief.

It also offers a light and dark option, depending on the player’s preference. Given the day and night variants of Kings Canyon, it’s fair to assume the light version is designed to be worn in the day, and the dark at night.

Crypto Battle Hardened

Our next skin concept returns to Crypto and, this time, features a concept for his heirloom too. Named the ‘Battle Hardened’ skin, u/Sitting_WOLF has included a trio of variants with slightly different looks, including a large dark green overcoat.

Similarly, they explain they did their research into his heirloom concept, to try and make it as authentic as possible.

I tried to create a simple Battle hardened type Crypto skin + Heirloom concept. I did some research and tried my best to make the Heirloom as Korean and Crypto’s as possible… since its just a modded Data Knife. What do you guys think? from r/apexlegends

Unique styles for Lifeline, Bangalore, Wattson, Crypto

Finally, we have four awesome skin concepts from u/PiroSheikah, offering the same aesthetic style to Lifeline, Bangalore, Wattson and Crypto. Each is given a dark, almost ninja-like overhaul, that would bring some stealth and silent threat to every legend. We’ll take one of each, please.

Here are some fanart skin concepts I made for Lifeline Bangalore Wattson and Crypto, I will draw more legends soon (it takes me a long time?) What do y’all think ? My art page on ig: @midonay from r/apexlegends

As much as we’d like to see fan-made concepts in Respawn, one of their senior writers has explained why that would be incredibly difficult to facilitate. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed, though.

Apex Legends leaks reveal Pathfinder Town Takeover coming in Season 7

Pathfinder will be the next Apex Legends character to get a Town Takeover, and the first to have their own personalized POI on new map Olympus, according to playtester images that have leaked ahead of the Season 7 update.

Town Takeovers are one of the most exciting events in Apex Legends. Not only do they bring new lore and backstories for their focal legend, but they also add special points of interest to the battle royale map as well, branded in unique ways.

Octane, Wraith, and Crypto have already enjoyed Town Takeovers on Kings Canyon, while Apex Legends’ second map, World’s Edge, hosted Mirage and Bloodhound events over the past few seasons. Now it looks like it’s finally Pathfinders turn.

Pathfinder looks set to become the first Apex Legends character with a Town Takeover on Olympus.

According to leaked playtester images shared by dataminer Biast12, the loveable robot will be getting a huge POI when Apex Legends shifts to new map Olympus in Season 7. 

The new Pathfinder point of interest will be a massive boxing arena.

In the leaked POI image, which is slightly blurry and back-and-white, Pathfinder can be seen wearing his heirloom gloves, and posing on a poster emblazoned with his name. The circle building behind it certainly looks like a sports stadium too.

Biast12 also said the leaked image only shows “part of [the whole] Pathfinder’s Town Takeover.” There is also allegedly a stadium “on the other side of the wall.”

Considering it’s just a single image that’s leaked so far, it’s tough to get a good picture of what the Town Takeover may actually look like. Biast12 did tease it could have “a bunch of zip lines everywhere” after replying to one fan’s comment.

When will Pathfinder’s Town Takeover start?

The Pathfinder Town Takeover will be in Season 7, and appears to be hosted on Olympus. Beyond that, however, a possible start date for the event is a little hazy.

The Mirage Voyage point of interest is the closest Town Takeover date-wise that we have to go off. It was released on Dec. 12, 2019, two months into Season 3. If Respawn sticks to the same formula, we could see Pathfinder’s arena at a similar time of year.

In fact, it could basically be bang on the same week. Season 7 arrives on Nov. 4 ⁠— yes, it’s still set for then, despite a little update scare this week ⁠— and eight weeks after that lands on Tuesday, December 8. That’s about as close as you can get!

Town Takeover teasers usually start earlier too. We may start to see Pathfinder teasers for the arena in mid-November, once we’ve settled into life on Olympus.

Pathfinder fans will be loving Apex Legends Season 7, from the sounds of it.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for official confirmation from Respawn about the exciting new takeover. The developers have never commented on Town Takeover leaks before, so the first time we see anything new could be in-game on Dec. 8.

Whether they comment or not, however, it looks like there’s a lot of exciting new content on the way at the start of next month. Season 7 will finally arrive, along with a new Legend, a brand-new map, vehicles, clubs, and more.
