Countless Apex Legends cosplays have been created by fans of the battle royale game, many of which are seriously impressive, but this take on Lifeline might well be the pick of the bunch.

Respawn Entertainment’s roster of playable legends has become something much bigger than just video game characters, with members of the game’s online community using them as a basis of a whole host of creative designs. 

This new cosplay, which was shared to the Apex Legends subreddit on September 6, has taken the page by storm after it was given the nod of approval by around 4,000 fans – at the time of writing.

The creator of this interesting Lifeline outfit was actually the girlfriend of the user that had posted it, and it’s fair to say that it’s gone down very well with the game’s fanbase. 

Its design, which the girl first rocked at the AnimeExpo2019, has been described as a “DIY London Calling Cosplay” by her partner. In the video, as seen below, you can see the cosplayer interacting with the camera in the same way the legend does in-game – using the same stance and pose.

The actual skin that this cosplay is based on is, of course, Lifeline’s London Calling look. This outfit features a skull print shirt, baggy trousers, her trademark headband, and even a star belt – all of which the cosplayer has incorporated into her design. 

Such attention to detail hasn’t been missed by fans, however, with many moving to heap praise on the Apex Legends player in the same thread. 

“Cosplay here, level ten out of ten!” one wrote, while another commented: “Awesome cosplay! I love everything about it, great job!”

Whether or not the cosplay creator will continue to post her newest creations online in the future remains to be seen, but her partner did reveal that she “loves” making them. So, there is a good chance Redditors will be seeing her again sometime soon.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
