With Caustic’s heirloom now fully revealed in Apex Legends, attention turns to Bangalore, who leakers claim is next-in-line for her very own special item. However, there has been some confusion around this particular one.

Both Caustic and Bangalore’s heirlooms were actually leaked at the same time, with the data miners correctly identifying Caustic’s deadly hammer as his item.

However, Bangalore’s item was originally leaked as a ‘Tonfa’ – a baton used by police and military – a suitable weapon for her character, many thought. But, Respawn appears to have switched gears, now giving her a knife instead.

Leaks previously of the Tonfa never actually revealed a model, only a file name. Now, though, the exotic-looking knife is on full display thanks to new data mined files following the Aftermarket Event.

Reliable Data miners @Biast12 and @SomeoneWhoLeaks have both shared images of the heirloom, but there is no exact name provided this time.

The shape of the knife is very similar to a Kukri, a type of Indian Machete.

All mention of the previously leaked Tonfa have apparently been changed to a ‘knife looking melee weapon’ in the game files, again according to the data miners.

But, now that Caustic’s heirloom is out, it’s possible that Bangalore mains will have to wait until Season 7 to get their hands on this heirloom.

Typically, only one heirloom pack is released each season, and they remain incredibly rare. Most of the previous packs have been released during collection events, of which there is only one per season. Of course, Wraith’s heirloom was released when Apex Legends first launched.

In other disappointing news for Bangalore, it was confirmed by a writer that the original Season 6 quest, that would have seen her feature prominently, was scrapped.

Although there will be some disappointment that the Tonfa has been replaced with another knife (there are already knives for both Wraith and Octane), anything can change in development.

It’s a good reminder to always take leaks with some caution, this one included.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.

Apex Legends 1.48 patch notes

  • Pathfinder’s shoulder staying in view after using grapple
  • Crypto unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode
  • Moved Performance Display so it doesn’t overlap with Kill/Assists HUD element in Ranked
