With so many leaked characters discovered for Apex Legends, and only one added each season (so far), we take a look at the legends most likely to be arriving in Season 4.

Octane was the first ‘DLC’ character to be added, back in Season 1, followed by Wattson and Crypto in seasons 2 and 3 respectively.

So far, Respawn Entertainment have restricted themselves to adding only one new character per season, and they’ll likely keep this up, although there is some speculation that two or more legends could be added for the fourth season.

It’s worth noting that all of these legends are still technically in development, and the details we have on them come from data miners digging through the game files. All of this is subject to change, as things often do in game development.

15 unreleased legends have been leaked, but who will be added next?

Possible Season 4 legend: Rosie (Loba)

Since as early as Season 2, Rosie, also known as Loba, has been the favorite to be the Season 4 legend. Her character appeared to be the most complete in the game files, almost as complete as Crypto, who of course was added in Season 3.

It’s also possible that a developer teased Rosie, thanks to a Twitter post showing a motion capture actor believed to be working on Rosie’s character. The cane is the biggest hint.

Rosie remains very likely to be added in Season 4, and it would also make sense to have another female character added, as we’ve had two males already. However, there are some other names also possible.

Possible Season 4 Legend: Forge

Forge is a late entry to the list of leaked legends, only added to the game files in the v3.1 update in early November. However, he has immediately become a front-runner for Apex Legends Season 4.

This is because, in the game files, he is labeled as ‘season4chars’ in the code – the plural also indicating there could be more than one.

An image was also included in the leaked game files, first revealed by data miner Shrugtal, believed to be Forge.

Rosie is still arguably more ‘complete’ in development than Forge, but the code is a big clue that he could be one of two or more new legends added for the next season.

Possible Season 4 legend: Revenant

Next, we have a character who has already appeared in Apex Legends: Revenant. The menacing voice who commanded the Shadowfall LTM in the Season 3 Fight or Fright event was none other than Revenant himself.

He was recently updated in the game files too, with a nickname change to ‘Synthetic Nightmare’, and he initially had two forms or ‘stances’, regular and shadow, but the latter was removed.

Respawn Entertainment

Given that Revenant has already appeared prominently in the game, it’s not an unreasonable assumption that he could be the next legend added as a playable character in Season 4.

Other characters coming to Apex Legends?

That’s our big three, but there are plenty of other names who could make an appearance. Firstly, we have Nomad, who was leaked at around the same time as Rosie and is also believed to be very far along in development. However, things seem to have gone quiet on this character since.

There’s also Conduit, who was added to the game files at the same time as Forge. It’s unclear how far along in development this legend is though.

We have a full list of all leaked legends and their abilities, and for all we know it could be any one of these characters added for the new season. We simply have to wait to find out for sure.

Every possible RP gain in Apex Legends ranked

Ranked play in Apex Legends allows players to test themselves against others of similar skill and claim special cosmetic items (and bragging rights). A helpful Reddit post breaks down exactly how many Ranked Points players will earn – or lose – based on rank, placement, and kills.

Almost all FPS games offer a separate ranked playlist for their players, and Apex Legends is no different. Since its release in Season 2, the game’s ranked mode has provided players with a way to test their skills against the best of the best.

Ranked Leagues separate players into seven skill brackets – ranging from Bronze to Apex Predator – based on their performance in two ranked splits. Each player’s current rank, match placement, and number of kills/assists determines the number of Ranked Points (RP) they will earn or lose every game.

With RP determined by several different factors, players can find it challenging to track how many points they are earning or losing each match. However, one player has come to the aid of anyone who gets confused.

Apex Legends RP combos

A post on the Apex Legends subreddit helps to clear things up for anyone confused about their potential RP gains. The helpful graphic comes from user Ninjario, who breaks down how many points players can gain or lose based on all three contributing factors: current player rank, final match placement, and total kills/assists.

The graphic shows the exact combinations needed to go positive in each match and what will cause players to lose RP for every skill bracket.

This provides players with an easy understanding of what performance to strive for in ranked: for example, Predator and Master players can easily see that a 6th place finish with three kills or assists is the absolute minimum needed for an RP gain (+6) in their skill bracket.

Ranked Leagues in Season 7

With the release of Season 7, a new ranked series also kicked off in Apex Legends. Starting on November 4, players will compete in ranked on the new Olympus map until December 15. The second split takes place on World’s Edge, and will run from December 15 to the end of Season 7.

In the Season 7 ranked update post, Respawn’s ranked designers discussed the state of ranked play. They covered topics like the ranking distribution of players from Season 6, and some of their on-going goals for the ranked playlist.

The first ranked split of Season 7 is currently available for players to jump into on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
