Simple Apex Legends buff idea would make Bangalore the perfect breacher

One Apex Legends player has suggested some clever changes to Bangalore’s tactical ability, Smoke Launcher, that could massively improve the Professional Soldier’s kit.

Bangalore was one of the original characters added to Apex Legends but has often flown under the radar compared to Legends like Wraith, Pathfinder, Lifeline and others in previous seasons.

While she is still a viable character in Season 6, Apex players have been calling on Respawn to improve her kit for a long time, to give Bangalore a small boost and help her keep up with the current fan-favorites.

Bangalore is known for her offensive playstyle in Apex Legends, with abilities that are tailored towards high damage and aggression. However, there are players that feel as if her abilities could do with simple improvements.

One Apex player, u/NizzyDeniro, revealed a full list of changes that they would like to see for Bangalore, with a heavy focus on the character’s tactical ability; Smoke Launcher.

They suggested that the smoke canisters Bangalore launches could be improved so that they open or break any doors they collide with, to make her the “perfect breacher” to take over a building.

The Apex fan explained that the change would give “Bangalore a breaching meta no other Legend has,” to help her stand out as in the Character Select phase.

While this would not be a massive change to Bangalore, NizzyDeniro also shared a complete rework of the tactical ability. It would allow her to alternate between smoke and flash grenades, to temporarily impair the vision of enemies affected.

“By using the utility button, Bangalore can switch canisters from smoke to flash.” they explained. “Flash canisters cannot be launched as far as smoke canisters, only about 40 meters.”

These changes would make Bangalore much more effective for breaching into a room and she would be particularly useful as a counter against campers, who look to catch their opponents funneling through doorways unaware.

While it could be difficult finding ways to balance Bangalore’s tactical rework idea, it seems to have picked up a lot of support online, with plenty of Apex fans hoping to see similar changes in the future.

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.
