Mirage’s Heirloom has awesome secret animation in Apex Legends

Players have discovered a clever and somewhat hidden animation for Mirage’s Heirloom weapon in Apex Legends that’s absolutely perfect for the Holographic Trickster.

Mirage is a man of many talents: He’s arguably the most cocky/confident legend in Apex, being able to bamboozle other players with his confusing abilities and is apparently a decent chef, to boot.

To honor his culinary skills, Respawn has apparently included a rare animation when using his new Heirloom weapon that smacks enemies with an actual pork chop.

The easter egg animation was discovered by an Apex fan on Twitter, who decided to play around with Mirage’s new Heirloom in the practice range.

While testing how the hilarious golden statue would work in combat, Kareem Fakher stumbled upon what could be the greatest animation we’ve ever seen in Apex Legends – and one, of if not the best, uses of a pork chop ever in a video game.

Apart from being absolutely hilarious and fitting with Mirage’s character perfectly, it’s also probably the most disrespectful way to take down an opponent.

Just imagine the shame you would feel if, in a game featuring robots, high-powered sniper rifles and literal laser cannons, you actually meet your end at the hands of some delicious grilled meat.

Mirage’s legendary pork chops have been a meme in the Apex community for a while now, with fans even attempting to recreate the recipe themselves, with mixed results.

Respawn has hyped Mirage’s brand-new toy as “free,” like they do for all Heirlooms, but any fan of the battle royale knows that’s not the whole truth. To unlock the new cosmetic, Apex players will have to collect 24 exclusive Lost Treasure items that can be found in packs, through direct purchase, or made through the Apex Legend’s crafting system.

So if you have enough time, or extra cash laying around, you too can unlock Mirage’s new Heirloom and experience the power of the pork chop for yourself.

Apex Legends Nov 18 update fixes Rampart exploit & more: patch notes

Respawn have launched a new update in Apex Legends that will patch out an exploit with Rampart’s turret as well as fixing some audio issues, reformatting Weekly Challenges, and more.

The Apex community has been very active with their feedback at the start of Season 7, and while there’s been a ton of content for players to sift through, problems with the Battle Pass or Rampart’s ultimate, Sheila, have been causes for concern among some.

The developers have been paying close attention, leading to the November 18 update which is going to take out the amusing but deadly Rampart exploit while giving people a helping hand at the revised Battle Pass progression system.

This means that Respawn are dousing fires inside and out of the Apex Arena this time around, with updates that should improve the player experience as well as the state of the game.

Apex Legends November 18 patch notes

  • Weekly Challenges have been adjusted back to Season 6 formating
  • 10 Battle Pass levels will be rewarded to all who log in
  • Rampart’s turret on Crypto’s drone
  • Audio adjustments
  • Misc fixes

Rampart Sheila exploit grounded

Rampart’s turret will be grounded after the Nov 18 patch in Apex Legends.

Thanks to an exploit, players had been hooking up Rampart’s Emplaced Minigun ‘Sheila’ to Crypto’s Drone. Since the game identified the hovering bot as a valid base for the Ultimate, we’ve seen people use this to wreak havoc by flying the turret around the map.

While it wasn’t really practical to set up the flying turret in the middle of a fight, it still provided some of the wildest clips to come out of the Arena. However, that won’t be possible any longer now that Respawn have sent out a fix that will keep the minigun grounded to the Apex battlefield like it was meant to be.

It’ll be interesting to see if the patchwork holds since people have been trying to get creative with how they can use the ability.

Battle Pass difficulty reverted

Respawn have toned down how long it’ll take to level up the Season 7 Battle Pass.

A few weeks after the Season 7: Ascension Battle Pass was launched, people were noticing just how long it took to simply move up a single tier. This quickly snowballed enough to get Respawn’s attention. While the controversial star system will remain intact for the season, the ability to level it up should mirror that of the Season 6 Battle Pass.

The Apex devs implemented the fix to Daily challenges last week, but today we saw Weekly challenges get the revised changes. As promised, Respawn are also giving all players who log in 10 free Battle Pass levels in light of the issues.
