Apex Legends Season 4 is rapidly approaching, and with plenty of hints and twists taking place throughout the final stages of Season 3, players can get a special Jimmy ‘Forge’ McCormick weapon charm to pay respects to the Legend who was seemingly set to join the game.

With Season 4 officially announced, many were looking forward to the arrival of Forge, who was set to become the latest Legend to enter the arena in hopes of becoming Apex Champion.

In a special ‘Stories from the Outlands’ feature broadcast on January 27 though, Forge was brutally attacked and killed during an interview by a figure who is almost certainly Revenant, plunging the future of the characters into doubt as fans try to figure out what will be the next part of this unfolding story.

Following the untimely death of 5x Hyper-Fighting Federation Champion, Apex Legends players who would like to honor the legacy of McCormick by sporting a special weapon charm designed after the massive gold medallion he wears around his neck.

Fans will need to head towards Sorting Factory, located in the south of the World’s Edge map if they hope to get their hands on the item. Located at Sorting Factory is the massive Metroline station where the train stops to drop off passengers and cargo, but also played host to the special interview between McCormick and Outlands Television host Lisa Stone. In fact, the set where the incident took place still stands on one of the platforms, complete with cameras and lighting, and this is where players need to head next.

Sitting inside the set is a special orange death box, which when players open, will have the “Steel Cut” weapon charm inside it, allowing you to equip it to your weapon and use it in memory of Forge.

The set where Forge was attacked in Apex Legends.

Once players have grabbed the charm, they will be able to head into their inventory in the game’s main menu and attach it to every weapon, so they can always carry the memory of Forge around with them.

Whether Respawn will add anymore free cosmetic items in the run-up to Season 4 remains to be seen, but players will be eagerly keeping an eye out for the next teaser as the game heads towards the next major update.

Apex Legends Season 7 start date moved forward one week

After an initial leak and then a change with the Season 6 Battle Pass, it appears that the start date for Apex Legends’ Season 7 start date has been moved up by a week.

Although not officially announced yet by Respawn Entertainment, all indications seem to be pointing to Season 7 kicking off a week earlier than had been originally scheduled.

According to the in-game Battle Pass menu, S7 was initially set to start on November 10, which made sense given the length of a standard Apex Legends season. Now, prominent data-miner ‘Shrugtal’ leaked updated game code that showed the date being changed to November 4.

Following Shrugtal’s tweet, Apex’s Battle Pass menu was adjusted to show that, as of October 21, there were only 14 days left remaining in S6, rather than the 21 that had been displayed earlier the same day.

This all but confirms the date change, which Respawn have not yet explained, although it could be because S6 had been delayed by a week, so this could be the devs wanting to keep subsequent seasons right on schedule rather than all of them also starting a week later.

While this change fixes that issue and also means Apex fans will be able to access Season 7’s content a week earlier, at the same time, they’ll have a week less than originally anticipated to experience everything that Season 6 has to offer.

It makes more sense now that the annual Fight or Fright Halloween-themed event, which starts October 22, is wrapping up on November 3, just in time for the new season to launch.

This change also helps to explain why Respawn have been so teaser-happy recently, putting out voice recordings almost on a daily basis hinting at what’s coming to their prized battle royale in its seventh chapter.

While we don’t know what these recordings mean just yet, since they all seem to be pieces of a larger puzzle, there’s no doubt that the Apex community is getting excited again over that familiarly awesome feeling of new content on the way.

S7 is set to introduce a brand new legend named Horizon and is also expected to add a new machine gun called Predator, although the latter has yet to be confirmed. Of course, players will also have a new battle pass full of content to jump into.
