C4 Satchel Charge coming to Apex Legends according to leaks

Another data mined leak for Apex Legends has surfaced, this time potentially revealing the addition of an explosive device from Titanfall 2, making its way into the battle royale game.

Apex Legends’ arsenal has been very much inspired by weapons from Titanfall 2, with many of the guns practically identical remakes, albeit with slightly different names.

As more weapons are added, it makes sense for the team at Respawn to continue this theme of borrowing from Titanfall 2, and the Satchel Charge looks like it will be a possible addition.

In Titanfall 2, the Satchel Charge would stick to surfaces and then could be detonated manually, causing a huge explosion.

Whether it will operate exactly like this in Apex Legends is unknown, for now all we have are some basic image files, revealed by data miner @RealApexLeaks. Similar leaked images of the Satchel Charge were first posted by GamingINTEL.

It must be noted that data mined game files don’t always mean that these items will make it into the game, as Respawn will often test out new features in development and then decide against them later.

However, with only three throwables currently available in Apex Legends (grenade, arc star, thermite), it does seem plausible that they would want to add in some new ones at some point.

Perhaps the Satchel Charge will release alongside the start of Season 1 and the Battle Pass, but the release date for this still remains a mystery.

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.
