 A brand-new ‘Graffiti’ hop-up has been uncovered by Apex Legends players, though, nobody is quite certain if it’s whether tied to a new limited-time mode or even a teaser for the next legend – seemingly, Rampart.

Anyone who has played a game or two of Apex Legends has come across a hop-up. These weapon attachments come in purple and gold forms and can give your weapon of choice a serious kick.

Hop-ups like the Precision Choke, Hammerpoint Rounds, or Skull Piercing rounds are highly-sought in games, though, players have also noticed that a ‘Graffiti’ hop-up appears to have made its way through too. The new hop-up has caused some confusion, though, as while it appears to be for the Spitfire, it could be teasing something much bigger.

The Graffiti mod has been seen by a few players in Apex Legends.

It was pointed out by Apex data miner Shrugtal, who noted that the mod gives +15% ammo size, speeds up reload time, and change fire mode can be switched to fire different paintball colors.

Though, while some pointed out that it could quite simply be for a paintball related limited-time mode, the leaker added that it would seemingly be for Rampart teaser given some previous leaks and the R logo on the hop-up.

“One possible Rampart passive was to give their LMGs increased magazine capacity and faster reload speeds,” he tweeted. “This hop-up does that, and goes on a Spitfire… There’s also the R…”

Of course, the connection to Rampart can easily be made, but there is speculation over whether or not he will be the new legend added at the start of season six. 

Other leaks noted that the female legend once known as Valk had recently been renamed to Nova, and even had a legend icon appear in the game’s files.

We’ll just have to wait and see as to whether or not Respawn is teasing Rampart with this hop-up, or if it’s just a regular hop-up that everyone can use. Only time will tell in that case.

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.
