One of the rarest skins in Apex Legends’ short history is getting a second life in the game, as the Airship Assassin Wraith skin has been revealed to return.
As we near the holiday shopping spree, the Apex community has been keen about this year’s iteration of the Black Friday event. There have been leaks already detailing what bundles or cosmetics could be returning to the shop, and one of them looks to be the prized recolor of Apex past.
The Airship Assassin is an alternative color scheme to Void Specialist Wraith, a common cosmetic among base designs in Apex. However, it was also one of the first exclusive Legendary skins for the shop, and hasn’t been seen since its release in June 2019.
At the time, Apex Legends was fairly new and people either didn’t care to purchase a roughly $20 recolor for Wraith or were expecting to see it sometime soon again after it left the shop – except it never came back.
But now, there’s finally a bit of hope for completionists since dataminer ‘RYMSKIY1’ posted a video showing the Airship Assassin in all its glory standing next to offers previously linked to 2020’s Black Friday sales.
Earlier in November, popular dataminer Shrugtal found a file with labels for ‘Black Friday Bundle Names.’ Among them were the Jester Bunder, the Legendary Hunt Bundle, and a Legendary Pack Bundle, along with two other Apex Packs offers.
Each of the three Apex Packs bundles included an in-game Bobblehead charm for Legends such as Bloodhound, Revenant, and Octane.
Well, in RYMSKIY1’s clip showing a Russian iteration of the Apex Shop, all previously datamined Black Friday offers were present, with the exception of a bundle with the Revenant Bobblehead in lieu of Airship Assassin Wraith for 6500 Legend Tokens.
Yes, Airship Assassin should be returning during the Black Friday sale.

The Chipotle Challenger Series returns for the final event of 2020, as Fortnite players have the chance to compete against a star-studded list of influencers and win big prizes.
This is the fourth edition of the 2020 Chipotle Challenger Series, and previous tournaments were won by surprise teams, so it could be your chance. You’ll need to make it through the qualifiers to take home the winner’s prize and a year’s worth of free burritos in the finale.
How to sign up
The competition is open to all players in the US or Canada ages 13 years and up. You’ll need to squad up with two teammates, as this is a Trios event, and register your team here.
It’s important to note that all teams need to have one player on PC as party leader, so you’re able to queue in custom lobbies via Mayhem.
The Top 4 teams from the qualifiers will then advance to the finale on December 8.

Chipotle and esports
This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.
The Challenger Series first kicked off at DreamHack Dallas, where players duked it out on PUBG, before moving to Fortnite for the second event at DreamHack Atlanta.
In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
