An Apex Legends player has proven that Wraith’s Marble Goddess Skin isn’t actually broken anymore, following complaints about her “broken hitbox” while wearing the cosmetic item.

Wraith is without question the most popular legend in the Apex Games. Her speed, handy tactical ability, and game-changing Ultimate make her perfect for players wanting to quickly get in or out of the action.

As such, many find themselves getting frustrated with the character, and the new problematic skin only served to exacerbate any complaints made about the legend.

Wraith’s Marble Goddess skin was introduced to Apex Legends with the Lost Treasures event, with Legendary rarity,

To be fair to those complaining, at first, the skin really was broken, with Wraith becoming immune to headshots with the skin selected but also having a ridiculously large hitbox, making her an easy target for enemies.

Now, though, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

As evidenced in a video below from The Gaming Merchant, Respawn have given the Marble Goddess skin a little update and made it much more fair on both user and enemy.

You can see that while you can no longer hit Wraith by shooting around her body, you are able to do damage if you hit any part of her actual body and, more importantly, headshot damage works exactly as intended.

It seems as though Wraith’s Marble Goddess skin is now working exactly as it should be, doing damage if you hit any part of Wraith’s actual body during a gunfight. Unfortunately, this does mean you now have no more excuses for losing your one-on-one battles.

If you’re still looking for fresh Apex Legends content though, keep an eye out on the Limited Time Modes (LTMs) coming to the game – according to a recent leak, the Shadowfall LTM might be returning, as well as a new one called Campfire.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
