The next seven characters in Apex Legends have reportedly leaked, with notable names recently tied to the battle royale’s lore like Blisk and Ash set to be in the playable lineup.

If Respawn holds to their schedule of releasing one Legend per era, that means the new characters up to Season 13 have potentially been revealed along with their classes.

Blisk, Ash, and others called Horizon, Fuse, and Husaria will be Offensive characters. The other two will be Legends that specialize in Recon abilities, and there were no planned releases for Defensive or Support categories.

According to the leak, the position after Rampart is occupied by someone named Valk. Details on Valk had previously been leaked, giving people a look at everything from proposed Tactical, Passive, and Ultimate abilities. The new information suggests that Titanfall 2’s Blisk and Ash will be released after Valk in Seasons 8 and 9, respectively.

The leaked Apex Legends characters

  • Valk – Offensive
  • Blisk – Recon
  • Ash – Offensive
  • Horizon – Offensive
  • Fuse – Offensive
  • Firebug – Recon
  • Husaria – Offensive

(The list corresponds to how they appear in the leaked in-game shot of the Apex Legends character select order.)

All-in-all, this stage of Apex’s development paints a good picture of how the 21 characters will look when they become available in years to come.

Previously, Horizon was believed to be linked with Valk or another leaked character called ‘Nova.’ The image shows Horizon and Valk with their own distinct placeholders, suggesting those two names could be under separate developments.

The image above, which shows the cast of characters more clearly, also includes part of Loba, and despite that she’s mostly cut off, there’s apparently enough there to excite fans even further.

The outfit skin she’s wearing is believed to be for the previously-leaked Aftermarket Event. The Loba skin was tied to the unannounced event in previously datamined information, before now appearing next to this expanded roster.

As for the authenticity of all this, it’s always important to take this sort of information with a grain of salt, seeing as how it’s not official until confirmed. That said, the images are from the actual game itself, so the likelihood of them being real is high.

As with all leaks, especially ones that deal with long-term plans like Season 13 content, anything could change at the drop of a hat within Respawn, if it already hasn’t.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
