Apex Legends player discovers new feature of weapon skins

Your iron sights change in Apex Legends depending on your weapon skin, which is nice little addition to the game.


As we wait for the Apex Legends Battle Pass to drop, it looks like fans are discovering new things that are currently in the game.

Apex Legends has numerous cosmetics for weapons that will give your weapon a special look to set it apart from other players.


The skin isn't the only thing that changes on the weapon as we also see the iron sights on the guns change depending on the skin.

A recent Reddit post showed us what the R-99 looks with a Legendary skin. Not only is the skin itself changed but the iron sight also received an updated look.

This is a simple, yet noticeable change that helps give the skins more of their own personality. Speaking of skins, there are going to be plenty more of them up for grabs when the Season 1 Battle Pass launches.

Season 1 of Apex Legends begins March 19 and will include more Legendary skins for your weapons, meaning there will be even more sight changes to look forward to.

Luckily, if you come across an iron sight that you don't like you'll just be able to loot a scope and pop it right onto the gun.

As a matter of fact, it's not too often you'll be stuck using the iron sights of a gun for all that long, which is why it's cool to see Respawn even put in the time of changing them up.
