Apex Legends fans have been clamoring for more unique skin designs and a Star Wars design would be something to look forward to.

Apex Legends has a lot potential for skins but Respawn hasn’t really delivered in that regard just yet, but the door is definitely open to doing so with a community rife with ideas.

With Apex Legends being a first-person game there isn’t as much of an emphasis on skins for characters as there is with Fortnite, a third-person game.

As a result, we’ve been left with more weapon skins that character skins. This isn’t exactly a bad thing but given how many skins Overwatch has for being a first-person game, it makes sense for Apex Legends to get the same treatment.

Like Overwatch, Apex Legends features a variety of different characters which allows for different kinds of skins for the entire cast.

Star Wars meets Apex Legends with this crossover concept

An image showing a person in full samurai-themed stormtrooper gear made the rounds on Reddit in both the Apex Legends and Star Wars subreddit where fans got a glimpse at what a new Bloodhound skin could potentially look like.

While getting a Bloodhound Star Wars skin will probably never happen, it’s not too outlandish to think of considering EA holds the Star Wars license and publishes Apex Legends.

As mentioned before, this image isn’t actually related to Apex Legends but it does allow for some brainstorming about a new Bloodhound skin.

What would make this skin truly a Stormtrooper skin is if your accuracy dropped significantly while wearing it.

A running gag in Star Wars is a Stormtrooper’s inability to hit accurate shots as you almost never see them connect with whatever their target is in the movies or TV series.

If a skin like this ever debuts, it’d certainly become one of the more interesting skins currently in the game. In the meantime, we’ll just have to stick with what we have.

Apex Legends ‘death spot’ on Olympus is getting players stuck & killed

A bugged ‘death spot’ in Apex Legends has been discovered on Season 7’s new map, Olympus, that’s getting players stuck in place before eventually eliminating them completely.

There’s a lot of room for error in the sky city of Olympus. The new Apex Arena has ample spots where players can simply fall off the map, tight corridors that are a death trap if not navigated correctly, and more pitfalls to watch out for at every corner.

Unfortunately, the same can be said about simple features on the map, like the rotating Grow Towers that have already been known to prematurely end players’ games if they stay on the spinning platforms for too long.

However, sometimes, even getting onto the Grow Towers’ platform in the first place can be a game-ender considering the curvature of the building’s base kept user ‘WOAHderWOAHder’ stuck until he died.

After pinging their team’s next move on the screen, the player went up the tower’s half-pipe entrance but couldn’t clear the landing. Instead of being denied entry, they were just locked in mid-air, unable to move.

They were spamming buttons to try and dislodge themselves from the death spot, even crouching to move the character’s model. But all that did was give them a look through the Apex map into the void down below.

Eventually, the map dealt a killing blow to the Lifeline without a chance to escape the situation, and other people might have gone through similar scenarios.

Though they look harmless, Apex’s Grow Towers have been known to be deadly.

“Swear to God, I fucking hate climbing up on the Grow Towers! That first curve that you have to deal with is sooo annoying,” one said in response.

Though the loot at the Grow Towers makes it a worthwhile detour in a match, there are some risks involved that players will want to think about before rotating over there.

It’s unclear how to replicate this bug in Apex to best know when it could strike, but it’s only a matter of time before Respawn catches wind of the death spot and do a quick job of patching it.
