The latest information to be datamined in Apex Legends gives a first look at an assortment of potential upcoming content, from weapons and equipment to mysterious new items, it seems as though a huge update is coming in the very near future.

Datamined content and leaks are nothing new to the Apex Legends community, however, a brand new batch of information uncovered on November 11 might be one of the biggest to date.

While potential Legends have been the focus in a number of recent leaks, recently uncovered files have shown a plethora of upcoming weapons, equipment, and so much more.

Arguably the standout item from the latest batch of leaked content is the spider item. Without any context, there’s no telling just how this creature model might work its way into the game but with six prongs emerging from the item, it could be used to deal damage to opposing players.

As various other recent leaks have indicated, spiders could be used from a distance to spit out toxic mist. Audio files that were made public in July might finally see the light of day in Apex Legends if this model is soon implemented in some capacity.

Also uncovered in the datamine was the model for a ‘proximity detonator.’ An explosive that can be planted anywhere on the map and remotely detonated by the touch of a button, C4 is often a staple in FPS games and could be making its way to Apex Legends in the very near future.

Considering how fast-paced the battle royale title can be, with highly mobile Legends such as Octane, the remote explosive would have to pack quite a punch to prove effective.

Additionally, a new folder name shed light on a ‘plasma turret’ that might be introduced down the line. While flamethrowers and remote turrets were leaked in March of 2019, this new item could be the first instance of a player-controlled turret in Apex Legends.

Perhaps this item could accompany a new Legend entirely, or find itself in an update to the World’s Edge map. It’s safe to say that a fast-firing turret could prove devastating in the battle royale title.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the new reveal was the abundance of unique melee weapons on display. From a bolo sword to a screwdriver specifically for Octane, it appears as though a future update will implement a wide array of melee-centric items.

There’s no telling whether these newly leaked weapons will be purchasable Heirlooms or if they will be unlocked through various other means but it will certainly be interesting to see new close-range items in combat.

Here’s a full breakdown of everything featured in the latest datamine.

While there’s no telling when some of these weapons and items might find their way into the game, do take these datamined files with a grain of salt. There’s no guarantee that every single image on display will eventuate into a new piece of content in-game.

With the frequency of leaks from the avid Apex Legends community however, there’s a good chance we see more information on some of these items in the very near future.

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.
