Shroud explains one change he would make to Apex Legends supply bins

Supply bins in Apex Legends are almost always great to come across – you can easily grab a weapon or shields, and even pull some high-tier loot from them. But, Shroud isn’t completely convinced and has explained one thing he would change about them.

Shroud has played a healthy amount of Apex in the time since its release and has become somewhat of a master player – his Apex Predator rank can attest to that.

With so much time playing the game, it’s fair to say shroud has some clear-cut opinions, and he’s spoken out about what needs to change in Apex Legends’ supply bins.

Supply bins are a good source of loot, ranging from weapons, to meds, to explosives.

Comparing the game to new battle royale title Spellbreak, shroud says: “What Spellbreak does is try to give you better RNG on what you’re missing [when opening a chest], and that’s how the loot bins should work.”

He went on to explain the logistics behind this. “Every loot bin, if you’re missing shield, or you’re missing meds or whatever, it should prioritize that.”

His teammate joked that it “sounds like a lot to ask for” and while shroud initially agreed, he went on to change his mind and say that he “doesn’t think it is.”

Sometimes the contents of a loot bin can be make or break for your success in the game depending on what you get in it, so this change would reduce the frustrating occasions when you just can’t find the last item you need.

However, RNG is an expected and vital part of the battle royale genre – in itself, the games are supposed to be a little more random than your standard FPS, which is why the supply bins don’t simply give you what you need.

That said, it would maybe put players on more of a level playing field if they were given items they need rather than just anything that pops up, and it would be interesting to see how that would alter the meta and gameplay in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.

Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.

Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
