Apex Legends’ second major update officially went live on Tuesday, February 19, and data miners have already began to search through the files in hopes of finding some unreleased clues towards the future of the game.

While the February 19 patch introduced some important fixes to the game, as Respawn Entertainment attempt to stamp out some bugs that have been causing the game to crash, they also quietly added a number of secret items that may give us a taste of what is to come in Apex Legends.

With many new leaks dropping, take a look at everything that has been found in the game.

New wallrunning and double-jump game mode spotted in files

One of the biggest Apex Legends leaks to come out of the February 19 update is the news that some of Titanfall’s movement mechanics could be making their way to the game.

Spotted in the files were a brand new mode that includes wallrunning and the use of JumpKits, which have both been featured in Titanfall games in the past.

JumpKits and wallrunning feature in Respawn’s other title, Titanfall.

Players could be able to play solo matches

Apex Legends have long been calling on Respawn to add a Solos mode to the game, and early leaks suggest they may just get one – but probably not in the way they expected.

The mode, titled ‘Recruit’, we see players gain new members of their team by knocking and then respaning an opponent, leading to a team-based faceoff at the end of the match.

Titans could be on their way

Another gameplay element from Titanfall was found in the game files, as lines of code referencing Titans were discovered in the update.

Titans are giant mech-suits that players jump in and control, providing them with an incredibly powerful weapons system to help them take down enemies.

More information about Hoverbikes

Word that a new vehicle called the Hoverbike had been found in the files of the game originally broke last week, but thanks to new information from the February 19 update, we now know a little bit more about it.

While there seems to be some work left to do on the item, leaks confirmed that the Hoverbike will hold three passengers.

New map?

This new map isn’t necassarily an entirely new location for battle royale to be played on, but there is one game file which describes the map ‘box’, instead of the standard King’s Canyon.

While all other game files use the code “mp_rr_canyonlands”, this code uses “mp_rr_box” instead.


While that’s all of the major leaks available at the moment, we’ll be sure to keep updating this post if any new information becomes available.

The Apex Legends Season 8 official gameplay trailer has revealed a handful of new Legend and Weapon skins included in the battle pass and beyond.

Season 8 is on the horizon and players are gearing up for all the new content Respawn has in store for them. With an overhaul to Kings Canyon and a brand new Legend being added to the roster, there’s plenty to look forward to.

Of course, new content is all well and good but what’s the point if you can’t look good while taking out your enemies. Well, as always, Respawn has revealed a range of new cosmetics set to arrive in the new season.

Apex’s Season 8 gameplay trailer, released on January 26, gives us a look at the brand new cosmetics we can expect to pick up at the start of February.

Lifeline mains have been treated to a new Legendary skin with a blue and red-style coloration.

Bangalore – Radical Action (Legendary)

Season 8 is going to bring Bangalore an incredible Legendary skin with a radical-style theme. This is definitely going to be a must-have for any Bangalore mains at the beginning of February.

Loba – Green and gold skin

The design of this skin suggests it will be Epic rarity and offers Loba players a green and gold coloration.

Here’s how Loba’s new skin shapes up in Season 8.

Season 8 weapon skins

30-30 Repeater skin

Season 8’s new weapon is arriving with a bang with a stylish blue and golden weapon skin. If you’re a fan of the Repeater’s gunplay when it releases, this is a must-buy skin.

We expect this will be a Legendary skin.

Flatline skin

The Flatline will be receiving a new weapon skin for Season 8 and it’s fair to say it makes the weapon look incredibly deadly. The black spikes paired with the red coloration makes for an amazing skin design.

Longbow DMR skin (Legendary)

With reactive red effects radiating from this skin when the gun is shot, it’s obvious this is going to be a fan-favorite for players who are experienced with the DMR. You’ll have to rank up the battle pass to the very top for this one though.

Longbow Season 8 skin

Knowing Respawn, there’s bound to be a bunch more cosmetics revealed to players at the release of Season 8 on February 2. Hopefully, you’ve saved up some crafting metals as these new skins are not to be missed out on.

If any new cosmetics are revealed before the release of Season 8, we’ll update this article with all the latest.
