Everybody’s favorite robot in Apex Legends has got a brand new ‘Swimming Buddy’ skin and Pathfinder looks better than ever! Let’s take a look at the game’s Twitch Prime reward for July. 

As players will know by now, each month Twitch Prime subscribers are entitled to free cosmetic drops in-game, similar to other rewards packages seen in GTA Online, FIFA 20, Red Dead Online, and more.

Going live on July 16 is a new Pathfinder outfit, which is bright red and blue from head to toe, quite different to many others that the character has had in the past.

The skin has been posted on the official Twitch Prime landing page, and will replace the previous offering of Gibraltar’s Tribal Instinct attire. So, let’s take a look at how to get the latest drop.

Here’s the new Pathfinder skin included in July’s Twitch Prime rewards. Soon enough, loads of Apex Legends players will have it equipped.

This time though, it’s not only a new Legend skin, as Respawn and Twitch are also handing out an exclusive weapon charm on July 20.

The Mixtape gun charm will be available four days after the Pathfinder skin.

How to get Pathfinder’s new Twitch Prime skin

This is the eighth drop in the Apex Legends Twitch Prime rewards series, with the likes of Crypto, Caustic, and Revenant being picked before Pathfinder.

Now, though, it’s the Forward Scout’s time to shine. Below is a step-by-step guide on how to get the legend’s latest set.

  1. Visit the Apex Legends page on the Twitch Prime website.
  2. Log in with a Twitch account that has an active Prime subscription.
  3. Click the ‘Claim Now’ button above the Pathfinder Swimming Buddy skin.
  4. When prompted, then click to link your EA account with your Twitch account.
  5. Once your accounts have been linked, the item will be claimed and added to your in-game inventory – ready to use!

That’s all you have to do! Once those steps are complete, head into the game and equip it to the legend in order to make the skin active.

The next Twitch Prime skin slot is blank for now, but hopefully soon we’ll know (via leak or official announcement) which character will be getting a fresh outfit next. Until then, enjoy Pathfinder’s new look!

Respawn Entertainment have revealed their newest teaser ahead of Apex Legends Season 7, involving a black hole and a small spaceship.

With Apex Legends Season 7 dropping on November 4, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have been eager for details about the new Legend, a potential new map, and everything else that a brand new season brings.

The devs have already dropped some hints about potentially adding ‘Olympus’ as a new map, used Horizon as a potential new Legend to give players challenges, and started talking about who will be receiving a buff with the big update.

They’ve also added a big teaser in the form of a familiar-looking ‘UFO’ floating off the coast of both World’s Edge and King’s Canyon. Now, they’ve moved on to a new teaser – a black hole.

Horzion was the latest Legend to be teased in-game.

The black hole doesn’t appear in Kings Canyon or World’s Edge, but instead, is the main image being used to hype up the new Stories from the Outlands video

The video, which is set to go live on Monday, October 26 at 3 pm GMT/11 am EDT/8 am PDT, is titled ‘Promise’ and in the image showing the black hole, a small spacecraft can also be seen in the bottom left-hand corner. 

Some players have quickly suggested that the video is all about Horizon’s official reveal as a new Legend, but it could be showing a flight to Olympus for the new map. We won’t know for sure until the video is premiered. 

Each Tales from the Outlands videos has given us more and more insight into the bigger story surrounding Apex Legends, including things like the backstory of Bloodhound and the death of Forge. 

What this one has in store still remains to be seen, but it’s sure to be packed with teasers for Season 7, and potentially even other future seasons.
