Another leak from Apex Legends has hinted at the arrival of Revenant as a new legend in Season 4 and it could spell disaster for Forge. 

Throughout some early portions of season three, it seemed all but nailed on that Revenant would finally emerge from the shadows and make their arrival as a new character for Apex Legends. 

However, while fans were still waiting to get their hands on the legend that gave them the creeps in the Shadowfall limited-time mode, the character seeming got passed over. Instead, Respawn Entertainment confirmed the existence of Forge – another previously leaked legend – in the upcoming season four. Yet, there could be trouble afoot.

Apex Leaker iLootGames grabbed a screenshot, whichh he claims came from a trailer that was mistakenly uploaded for two minutes. The image shows Revenant behind Forge as the character looks to be making a speech of some kind. 

However, things seemingly get tricky for Forge, as Revenant looks set to strike with a backstab of some kind – as their arm has been replaced by a weapon and is fully prepared to swing forward to deliver the killing blow. 

As it’s only a screenshot, it can’t be confirmed what is happening, but it does look an awful lot like Revenant and Forge are intertwined with their lore – with the pair of them, not just Forge, making their arrivals to Apex in Season Four.

Yet, some players have also discussed the possibility of not even getting to play as Forge altogether. “Really hoping they both get to be playable because I was really really liking the look of Forge,” commented Redditor Joshwuhh.

Of course, it very much remains to be seen as to what this leaked screenshot means, and if Revenant will join Forge in the new season. 

We don’t have that long to wait, though, as Apex Legends Season 4 kicks off on Tuesday, February 4 – a full year on from the battle royale’s surprising release.

Potential Loba buff spotted in Apex Legends Halloween trailer

Eagle-eyed Apex Legends players have spotted what appears to be an excellent new buff for Loba, possibly coming as soon as the Halloween event update, as it was spotted in the Fight or Fright trailer.

Despite hype levels off the charts for Loba’s addition in Season 5, her actual viability in gameplay never matched up. Partly this is because her teleport ability essentially didn’t work for months on World’s Edge.

That did get fixed eventually, but it still hasn’t been enough for Loba to break into the top tier picks, and Respawn are definitely aware. A slight buff was added in the Aftermarket event update, but it may not have gone far enough.

Loba now starts the match with her ultimate at 50% charge, and increased the range for her loot finding abilities. But, another, possibly more meaningful buff, could be on the way.

Featuring prominently in the Fight or Fright event trailer, Loba at one point throws her bracelet to teleport, and very observant fans have noticed a significant change in the animation.

When her teleport is complete, Loba’s bracelet no longer spins in front of her, cutting out vital seconds before she’s able to be gun up, ready to fight again.

You can see a side-by-side comparison of the difference in the clip below, thanks to @noxlotl:

We can’t say for certain that this is a real buff that will actually function in gameplay, it’s possible it was for trailer purposes only. But, in previous trailers, this change hasn’t been made.

This might seem like a minor change, but it would promote Loba’s ability to be used more often for attacking plays, rather than simply running away when low on health.

Being ready to fire again faster means you could teleport behind an enemy player, and actually have a chance of killing them before they turn round due to the sound cue.

Whether we see this buff in Fight or Fright, Season 7, or at all, remains to be seen.
