Apex Legends stands as one of the most creative and vibrant FPS games on the market today, and here are our favorite community skin concepts from the past few weeks, as fans of the game once again flex their artistic muscles. 

The Apex Legends community has become known for its incredible game engagement, with fans of Respawn’s BR regularly sharing their own cosplays, Legend concepts and skin concepts.

On the topic of the latter, we’ve rounded up some of the best skin concepts from the past few weeks, that have been shared by the artists behind them.

Wattson Nessie

First up is this awesome Wattson skin from u/shiba219808, crossing the Static Defender with the infamous Loch Ness Monster. It ditches the oranges and blues were used to seeing on Wattson, and replaces them with a large green onesie, complete with a ‘Nessie’ hood.

Casual skins

The second set of concepts we’re going to bring you also deals with Wattson, but also Wraith. The concepts, from @akka_0510, give both characters an anime-style makeover, and seem to be asking Respawn to implement more casual skins into the game. Simple, yet effective.

Red Voidwalker

Next up is a scarlet re-color of the Vodiwalker, Wraith, from Redditor ‘sourkadin‘. It overhauls the purple with which we normally associate with Wraith, replacing it for a blood red, that would certainly make Wraith stand out. It’s an awesome, yet simple overhaul of an absolute fan favorite.

FAN MADE WRAITH Recolor. I’m not sure what to name the skin? Deaths Awakening, Tiger Blood, Red Assassin? Either way I hope someone enjoys this! 🙂 from r/apexlegends

Tomb Raider Loba

Finally, we’re bringing you a Tomb Raider rework of Season 5’s addition, Loba. The High Society Thief would have to swap high society for tombs, but we’re not sure people will mind if he skin is as cool as this concept.

We’re throwing the name ‘Loba Croft’ into the mix as a potential name for this awesome concept from ‘ElusiveMIMI‘.

Can we please get a Tomb Raider based skin for Loba?!?!????? (Ps: this is my first edit like this so go easy) from r/apexlegends

The awesome artwork goes some way to show the time and effort players will invest into their favorite games, as well as paying tribute to the creative world Respawn have pioneered.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
