A genius Apex Legends trick has been shared by YouTuber ‘Eggzplane’, showing players of Respawn’s battle royale how to destroy an item. 

We’ve seen many ticks and glitches in Apex Legends, allowing players to do all kinds of wacky things. While some are pretty pointless, others, like this destroying items trick, may turn out to be really useful for players.

Say you’re already donning gold armor, but come across a purple armor, you may want to move it to a more discreet location in order to prevent an enemy from upgrading theirs. This trick means you can take your tactics one step further, and guarantee no enemies will get their hands on powerful items.

The genius trick takes a few steps, but none are particularly complicated. Step one is simply to locate the item they want to destroy, and then equip it. This may mean temporarily dropping your better item, but you’ll be able to come back to it in a matter of seconds.

The second step is then to climb on top of an open door, and drop the item on top. This will bind the item to the door, allowing you to open and close it without displacing the item.

The final step is to open the door and break it, which can be done by meleeing the door once its open. Not only only does this get rid of the door, but deletes the item from the game completely.

The YouTuber explained that they were messing around with a friend when they realized that items can be destroyed.

There are multiple possible uses for the trick, but none more useful than destroying a valuable item that you don’t want. Failing that, maybe an item just really wound you up and you want to exact your revenge by wiping it from existence.

Given that it looks like a manipulation of a door mechanic, Respawn may confirm it as a glitch in the near future and work to patch it. Until then, destroy all the valuable armor you want. Just make sure there’s no enemies around before you start scaling open doors.

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.
