Respawn Entertainment developers have asked Apex Legends players for their feedback on any weapon or legend changes they would like to see implemented in the game.

As Season 4 is now underway, players have been reacting to many of the new changes that came with it.

There were balancing changes in the game’s latest update, on top of alterations to the World’s Edge map and the introduction of a brand new character, Revenant, which players have been enjoying.

Apex Legends: Season 4 featured the addition of Revenant and many other changes.

Although the update brought some fresh content to the Apex Legends servers, there are still some changes that many players have been hoping for and developers at Respawn have called on fans to share their feedback.

Respawn lead game designer, Carlos Pineda, asked players to contribute their feedback on the current state of the characters in-game and to decide on which legends need a buff and why.

The Apex Legends developer has received a massive number of responses so far with many fans calling for buffs to some of the fan-favorites such as Mirage and Lifeline.

Similarly to Pineda, Apex Legends weapon designer, David Bocek, also called for fans to get involved, asking them for feedback on any future changes they think would be needed for the game’s guns.

“Let’s talk about Apex Legends weapons! I’d love to hear your thoughts on recent weapon changes and overall weapon meta!” he expressed.

The tweets garnered responses from many of the game’s top personalities and pro players, who each shared their own ideas about what they would like to see in Apex Legends.

Many players seemed to agree that Gibraltar could do with a nerf after some of the recent changes to his abilities.

Although the developers asked fans for their thoughts, they made no promises that any of the popular ideas would be implemented, however, they expressed that they would consider every suggestion that came their way.

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.
