An Apex Legends fan has uncovered yet another insane easter egg in the Firing Range – allowing players to roam around the training map in third-person.

For the past few days, a lot of Apex Legends players have been caught up in the craze of finding easter eggs on the Firing Range map in training mode. Members of the Respawn development team revealed that there was a huge easter egg that nobody had uncovered, but since then, players have been finding lots of different ones. 

After spending countless hours looking for anything, we’ve seen players uncover the huge easter egg, locate secret areas, and even references to Star Wars, but the secrets haven’t stopped there.

RespawnApex Legends players have been searching Firing Range for every secret possible.

In a post to the Apex Legends subreddit, user JoshOyen showcased a video of how they managed to go into a third-person view with each of the game’s characters. 

By using Pathfinder, the Redditor grappled on to the champion banner on the right side of the map, before swinging round to a ledge that stands behind it. Once there, JoshOyen looked down and crouched in a small bush before then changing legend.

With that process complete, the Apex Legends fan was then free to roam the training map with a third-person view while switching between each legend and getting a clean look at the skins they’ve forked out for.

Of course, many fans were wowed that one of their own had uncovered yet another easter egg, but the discovery also prompted a response from the Respawn development team.

Lead Designer Jason McCord, who goes by the name MonsterClip, simply posted the side-eyes emoji in response – perhaps hinting that it could be a part of a bigger thing.

Apex dev Monsterclip weighed in on the discovery of the third person easter egg.

Now, with players dedicating hours into their search for secrets, it appears as if they’re going to scour every single inch of Firing Range to find something new.

Just how many other easter eggs are out there remains unknown but considering some of the creative secrets that Respawn have hidden so far, the possibilities could be endless.

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.
