Eagle-eyed Apex Legends players believe they may have found an early teaser for the next legend that will be added, fitting with Respawn Entertainment’s affinity for hidden easter eggs. 

Developers of Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment, have been known in the past to leave players hints at upcoming content, often dropping teasers and allowing players to fill in the gaps.

As the game’s third season flourishes, players believe they have potentially found a teaser for an upcoming legend – the identity of which is unknown.

Leaks and rumors up to this point towards a total of 15 legends being worked on, including Nomad, Conduit, Revenant, Rosie and Forge. The game has seen Octane, Wattson and Cypto added at the inception of each new season, and there is no reason to believe Respawn will diverge from this method of dispensing DLC.

RespawnOctane was the first new legend added to the game, back in Season 1.

Prior to the addition of each legend, there were numerous in-game teasers, the likes of which players think they’ve found another.

One Reddit user posted a snippet of gameplay, showing the mini-map in the top left briefly cutting out, displaying the message: “RADAR JAMMED”.

It flashes away as quickly as it came, however, leaving many to be confused as to what it could mean. The most obvious answer, of course, is the upcoming addition of a legend who will have the ability to block enemy radars.

Hint for new legend? Randomly Happened in a normal game from apexlegends

The feeling among Apex Legends players is that the ability belongs to a new legend, who is – in the game’s narrative – just entering the map’s vicinity and therefore impacting the existing legends.

This happened as hacker Crypto was teased, with technology across the map faltering as Respawn pointed towards his introduction.

No official confirmation regarding the game’s next legend has been released, leaving players to speculate over the few hints that are available.

Respawn EntertainmentLeaks surrounding Rosie have been around for the longest, but have gone quiet recently.

Rosie seems likely based off how long her name has been floating around in-game files, but the rumored ability to jam a radar leaves a lot in the air.

The new legend found in the game files, Forge, could also possibly be coming in Season 4, although none of his leaked abilities explicitly state anything about jamming radars.

Despite the typically established formula of dropping one new legend per season, leaks have pointed towards ‘characters’ coming to Apex Legends, so there is a slim possibility we will see multiple added at once.

It’s also possible that the jammed radar isn’t anything to do with a new legend, but instead a new item or piece of equipment set to be added to the game.

While obviously unconfirmed, the leaks generate even more excitement among the Apex community as players speculate over the future of the beloved battle royale.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
