Little-known Apex Legends tip stops enemies pushing when you’re downed

An Apex Legends player has shared a little known tip that can help you get a revive off while also denying enemies who are trying to chase up ziplines. 

In most battle royales, you’re only really useful to your team when you’re on your feet, grabbing loot, or shooting at enemies. 

Though, in Apex Legends, you can also pull your weight even after you’ve been knocked down. You can distract enemies for your teammate, block shots with your shield, give callouts – either on the mic or ping system – and block doors so enemies can’t push in.

However, you can expand on the door blocking by blocking off vertical ziplines – meaning enemies are sent right back down to the ground.

Apex players can still be helpful when downed.

It was pointed out by Reddit user I-KIA, who showcased a clip from a recent game on World’s Edge. They were downed in one of the hanging train cars above Train Yard but immediately used it to their advantage.  

As the enemies were trying to push up towards their team, they sat on the small ledge the ziplines heads up to and denied the enemies a chance to push. Each time they used the zipline, they were bumped back down to the bottom. 

It might be a small, situational tip to use, but as I-KIA showed, it can annoy enemies who get greedy and just keep on pushing. Plus, it could also give your teammate a chance to revive you while the enemies keep on dropping back to the ground.

Of course, when it comes to doing it at Train Yard, you do leave yourself hanging over the small ledge so enemies could easily back off, take aim, and try to finish you from the ground instead of pushing repeatedly. 

Either way, though, by keeping the tip in your back pocket, you are sure to annoy an enemy or two who think they’ve got an easy elimination.

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.
