A fresh Apex Legends leak has revealed some details about Nova – who could possibly be another female character in the battle royale when season six launches.

As each new Apex Legends season unfolds, players are always looking to the future as data miners dig into the new files added by Respawn Entertainment. In the past, they’ve been able to find a whole host of details about the upcoming legends.

Going all the way back to season one, a full list of legends that were in development was leaked and while they all haven’t been released, we’ve at least seen a few of them added.

With new files being added to Apex with the start of the Lost Treasures Collection Event, leakers have been able to get their hands on a few new details.

The new supposed new legend that they’ve uncovered is called Nova. Reliable leaker Shrugtal posted a photo of what looks to be Nova’s legend icon as well as a few other details. 

“She’s literally called pilot_medium_nova, like all the other legends e.g. pilot_medium_loba,” the leaker added, referencing further details that they’d found, including placeholder animations from Bangalore. 

The female character has also seemingly taken the place of the previously leaked Valk, with Shrugtal noting that there are no mentions of that name anymore in the files like there had been previously. 

Though the references to a new legend may spark excitement about her possibly being added in season six, new details about Rampart were also uncovered – and it seems as if he might be a little further down the line in development, especially as there are abilities for him in the files. 

Of course, the Apex devs haven’t been averse to a little bit of trickery either. Who can ever forget all the teasers for Forge prior to season four, only for him to be killed and replaced by Revenant? We’ll just have to wait and see as to what the devs have up their sleeve.

Bizarre Apex Legends bug is teleporting players across the map

Apex Legends players have run into a huge issue where they are teleported across the map if they’re knocked after trying to use a Replicator. 

With Apex Legends Season 7 on the horizon, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale are looking forward to what the next big update will bring – including a new legend, a potential new map, as well as changes to the current legends and weapon pool. 

However, in the meantime, they’re still running around King’s Canyon and World’s Edge, trying to rack up wins and pick up the last few bits of the Season 6 battle pass. 

Yet, some players have been hit with an unusual problem that is teleporting them back to a Replicator if they’re knocked down during a firefight.

The unusual issue was flagged by Reddit user i7estrox, who showed that it all stemmed from them trying to use a Replicator. One side of the crafting machine was inaccessible, but they were fine to use the others.

As they progressed on in their match, i7estrox engaged a team of enemies and despite getting some decent shots off, they were knocked down. However, instead of staying where they were knocked, the Redditor was sent hurtling across the map. 

They were taken right back to the side of the Replicator that was inaccessible at first, and left to lay there as their teammates continued on fighting.

It seems likely that, given i7estrox tried to access the inaccessible side of the Replicator at first, the game registered them as still using it for some reason, even though they’d moved on and that’s why they were teleported back.

Other players have confirmed that they’ve fallen victim to the same problem, so Respawn might have to get their skates on and get the issue ironed out for Season 7 – unless they have already. But, we’ll just have to keep an eye on that.
