Apex Legends players have uncovered a strange new issue that prevents Mirage from instantly going invisible while reviving Wattson – leaving them out in the open.

Since Apex Legends first launched back in February of 2019, Mirage has been a mainstay in matches – even though he hasn’t always been a top tier choice.

The deceptive legend is a great choice if you want to mess with the enemies thanks to his decoy abilities. However, one ability that really sets him apart is Now You See Me, which allows Mirage and the legend he is reviving to become invisible for a few moments. Yet, there seems to be an issue with giving Mirage, in particular, a helping hand.

Mirage has finally got his Apex Legends rework, more than a year after his release.

The problem was pointed out by Reddit user Puedd, who showcased a video from their recent game where they had been playing as Wattson. As the Redditor’s teammate tried to revive them, they didn’t disappear from view as they’re supposed to.

Instead, the pair flickered on the screen for a few moments before Mirage was finally able to hide in the shadows. While most of Wattson’s body also, eventually, went invisible, her head and shoulders could still be seen.

The Redditor noted that this was probably an issue with the Wattson skin they were using, with only fans chiming in with similar experiences. One player, Night-Errant, noted that it is an issue with any epic or animated Wattson skin.

Some others suggested that if you’re going to play as Wattson, as long as the problem persists, it is better to just stick to her base skin rather than use anything flashy. This way, you can fully disappear from sight alongside Mirage.

Of course, with skins being a huge way for players to express themselves, it is a problem that Respawn will likely need to address in the future.

As of writing, it hasn’t appeared on their Trello board of problems they’re looking into, so they might be aware of it just yet.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
