Respawn Entertainment dropped a brand-new update for Apex Legends on Tuesday, December 3, and data miners have leaked a host of skins and cosmetic items for fans of the game to enjoy.

Especially during Season 1, cosmetic items were a major point of contention for players of the popular battle royale title, with many claiming that the skins the developers released were boring, and calling on them to be a little more creative with their offerings.

Since then, Respawn have listened to fan criticism and released lots of exciting and creative skins, and that looks set to continue thanks to new leaks from @That1MiningGuy, who sifted through the December 3 update files to find what’s coming next to the game.

Respawn have been adding more colorful and creative skins to Apex Legends.

It seems that players will have plenty of new cosmetics to get their hands on in the coming weeks, with almost 200 cosmetic items spotted in the game’s files following the update.

All of the game’s Legends will receive multiple new skins, giving them a fresh look as they battle around the World’s End map, while many of your favorite weapons will also receive new coats of paint and lots of weapon charms to hang off the side and allow players to show their personality.

There are even some new icons and banners to give your game that final, personal touch, and you can view all of the leaked skins and cosmetics in the image below.

While the leaked cosmetics are now in the game’s files, there is no guarantee that all of them will see the light of day, and there is currently no confirmed release date for players to look forward to.

The items were found in the game’s files following Tuesday’s December 3 update, which introduced a new progression system, changes to Firing Range and more.

Respawn Senior Game Designer wants more “non-BR” modes in Apex Legends

Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein is a big fan of Apex Legends’ non-BR modes, and would want the studio to experiment with a few more concepts after seeing how successful the Winter Express has been.

Admittedly, Klein isn’t a part of the game modes team at Respawn, but the senior developer gave his preference on which direction the battle royale could take from here. Previous modes like Hunt and the Winter Express tweaked Apex’s typical formula, giving players something different to get their hands on.

The team at Respawn has proven they can make modes that don’t feed into the normal BR format but still create products that resonate with their players. Klein would like to see more of this out of Apex in the following seasons, though has said there’s not much to reveal on that front as of yet.

“I really want us to try more non-BR things; I think Winter Express was a wonderful proof of concept that Apex can be super fun in non-BR modes,” he said on Reddit. “I think something Mario Party-like, like (League of Legends’) Nexus Blitz, would probably be a bit too much for a game like Apex, but there are LOTS of cool things we could do.”

He isn’t wrong on that final point. Aside from being a solid battle royale in the bustling genre, Apex Legends has something unique that not many games can boast about: it’s incredible characters.

Respawn have injected a vast amount of lore and personality into their cast of 15 Legends, meaning they can produce nearly any mode they want without struggling with how it logistically fits into the game.

We kind of got a taste of that type of ingenuity with the Fight or Fright Collection Event, that showed Pathfinder teleporting into a night version of Kings Canyon which introduced the Shadowfall mode.

Now that there’s vehicles and loads of new gameplay mechanics in Season 7, non-BR modes like races, new PvE concepts, and more can be a frontrunner for possibilities to explore.

Like Klein said, there isn’t anything Respawn are ready to announce for Apex Legends as of yet, but players have loads of content to hold them over until they do.
