An Apex Legends player has devised a pretty simple concept for adding a Titanfall Pilot into the battle royale – even finding a use for their destructive Smart Pistol. 

Given the obvious ties between Apex Legends and Titanfall, players have been hoping that Respawn Entertainment will continue the crossovers into the future. There has been speculation of classic Titanfall weapons being added, the possible use of the Titans themselves, as well as ideas for using the characters as skins.

One player has gone a level above just using the characters found in Titanfall as skins for Apex Legends – coming up with a simple, yet pretty interesting concept for adding a Pilot as a legend.

The idea was concocted by Reddit user Darkspace99, who managed to compile some of the much-loved facets about Titanfall into their Pilot character. 

While keeping the look of the Pilot the same as Titanfall, it’s addition would need three abilities. For the Passive, Darkspace99 suggested that the character could have a Jump Kit that allows them to wall run with a small speed boost – sort of like Octane’s Stim

The idea also noted that the Pilot’s tactical ability could be a double jump, allowing them to scale buildings like Revenant. The controversial Smart Pistol would even get worked in as the Ultimate – giving players a few shots using the weapon’s auto-lock.

Some players pointed that while the concept was pretty interesting, having the Smart Pistol in-game would take some serious balancing – and might make the Pilot an incredibly overpowered legend.

Of course, if it ever happened, that would all fall onto Respawn’s shoulders to figure out and make sure the game remained in a competitive state. The next legend to be added to Apex Legends will be Loba in season five, but we could see some sort of obvious Titanfall related legend further down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
