Sneaky Apex Legends hiding spot in Labs gives you easy kills

Apex Legends players have got a sneaky spot that could give you the drop on unsuspecting enemies who are rushing around Labs like headless chickens. 

Just like any other battle royale, there are plenty of different ways to play Apex Legends. You can hang back with someone as Crypto and play the edge of the circle. You can get ultra-aggressive with Pathfinder, or slow it down and set up defenses as Rampart.

Each player falls into a different category but there are plenty of tricks and tips that everyone shares – be it the best way to set up a particular weapon or a killer hiding spot.

Well, when it comes to the latter, players have got a ridiculously powerful one inside the middle room of Labs, where you can get the drop on unsuspecting enemies.

Labs can be full of enemies in the early game, so watch out.

It was pointed out by Reddit user OurSocialStatus, who showcased a clip from a recent game where they had ventured into the center room of Labs – only to be greeted by a number of kill-hungry enemies. 

Instead of facing them head-on, the player used the open door on the right-hand side of the screen to jump up to a perch by the ceiling. This gave them the high ground advantage, while also being hidden away. 

As enemies rushed into the room, OurSocialStatus was able to pick them off with ease as the foes struggled to figure out who had got the drop on them. Though, the Reddit user made it slightly easier for them when they dropped down from the ceiling.

While the spot does appear to be pretty powerful, especially in the early game as plenty of players make a mad rush for Labs, you probably will need a bit of luck on your side to get there. 

If there are no enemies around, the jump to the ceiling should be pretty simple but if the timing is wrong, you could be caught out and sent right back to the main menu.

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.
