Skilled Twitch body painter Kay Pike has shared her incredible transformation into Apex Legends’ Revenant, the deathly Synthetic Nightmare added for Season 4. 

As Apex Legends characters go, few are as difficult to cosplay as Revenant. While a number – Lifeline, Bangalore – are human-figures with unique costumes, some, like Revenant and Pathfinder, defy biological classification.

The daunting challenge didn’t stop one Twitch body painter however, who sought to recreate the Synthetic Nightmare’s skeletal, morose aesthetic during her stream on May 9.

Revenant is one of Apex’s darker legends.

One of the hardest parts of body painting is getting contours and depth to the look, but its something ‘KayPikeFashion‘ has perfected. The cheeks of her Revenant perfectly encapsulate the skeletal mask, appearing to sink below the cheekbones.

She went on to stun her audience with the Revenant look, combining paint and costume to accurately recreate all aspects of the cosplay. The red bandana is present, alongside the legend’s dark grey and red armored bodysuit.

It is the latest in a long line of body art that has stunned the streamer’s audience, on both Twitch and social media. She has recently shared Star Wars body art of Darth Maul and C-3P0, as well as Joaquin Phoenix’s acclaimed Joker.

She explained that the art took over three hours, and she still had a few finishing touches to apply. It goes to show the lengths some artists will go to in order to perfectly recreate their favorite fictional characters.

The Twitch personality even joked that all Revenant wants is to look “pretty”. Going off the murder of Forge, we’re not so sure.

Loba has now been revealed as the next legend coming to the Apex games, joining the roster in Season 5, Perhaps this will be Kay Pike’s next challenge.

Apex Legends devs respond to broken Gibraltar hit reg bug

Respawn Entertainment are looking into yet another hit reg problem in Apex Legends where Gibraltar’s passive ability, Gun Shield, is actually stopping the legend from hitting his own shots on enemies in certain scenarios.

The game’s developers are always sieving through feedback from players, and on November 18 one member of the community highlighted an alarming issue with Gibraltar’s passive.

As many will know, Gibby is one of the strongest Legends in the game and features in the highest spots of many tier lists, though this new-found problem might explain why some of your bullets haven’t been as effective as they could have been.

Reddit user gtnpr found the bug, and commented: “No regs occur when I release ADS at the same time as shooting while using the gun shield.”

It didn’t take the dev team long to stumble upon it, either. One of them replied to the post looking for more in the way of specific details to help them find a solution.

They said: “Just curious, but if you have a friend also in the game, do they see you shoot a bullet? Does the bullet still hit for them? Info on what another player sees would be super helpful!”

The developer confirmed they were looking into it, but “can’t [reproduce] it. Believe it or not almost all bugs like that you can’t easily reproduce, so more information is needed.”

However, other players confirmed they too had experienced the issue, and it could be an explanation for some of the continued hit reg issues players are experiencing.

The problem has not yet been added to the Trello board of investigated issues in Apex Legends, though based on these comments the team is on the job. Hopefully, it won’t be long before Gibby mains aren’t running into this — while still rare — frustrating issue in-game.
