Respawn “investigating” two major Wraith glitches in Apex Legends

Apex Legends developers Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re working on fixes for two of the biggest Wraith bugs that currently plague the battle royale.

As one of, if not the most, popular characters in Apex Legends, it’s a good bet that you’ll see wraith running around Kings Canyon or World’s Edge during games. 

However, in recent weeks, the Interdimensional Skirmisher has suffered a few issues. Most recently, with the start of the Lost Treasures Collection Event, players reported that her Marble Goddess skin had a broken hitbox – prompting Respawn to get a fix put into place, though, some players argued that it was fine.

Yet, the devs have sprung into action once again, confirming that they’re weeding out a few other Wraith-centric problems.

Wraith has always been one of Apex’s most popular legends.

On their public Trello board, where Apex legends fans can see what problems are being addressed, Respawn noted that they were investigated two pretty big issues.

The first of which is the bug where Wraith can use her gun while phasing. This has been cropping up in games with regularity, leaving non-Wraith users to be dismayed as she shoots from beyond the void.

The other is the bug where, when players exit Wraith’s portal, they can see the legend being ‘pushed’ underground. This problem in particular has led to frustrations as players have lost games because of it.

While some fans might get excited by the prospect of fixes being on the horizon, these bugs were only labeled as under investigation on July 2. This means that a fix hasn’t been found just yet. 

However, the devs have moved pretty swiftly in the past, so it might not be all that long before Wraith’s problems are a thing of the past. For now, though, we’ll just have to wait and see as to what they can do.

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.
