An Apex Legends cosplayer, Esha Singh, has dished out a unique Wraith cosplay with a casual but perfectly authentic look, and fans on Instagram and Reddit are going nuts over it.

Apex Legends has many impressive characters. However, Wraith is arguably the most popular one. Players are drawn to her dark and mysterious backstory, her unique set of abilities, and of course, how awesome she looks.

Wraith has many different skins, some of which are more elaborate than others.

There’s something special about her traditional look, however, which consists of black clothes with hints of purple mixed with brown leather straps and belts. She also has a loose scarf thrown around her neck.

A cosplayer named Esha Singh decided to do something a little different with her latest piece. Instead of going for the biggest and fanciest skin she could find, she decided to re-create Wraith’s standard look with a casual twist.

It still has all the necessary details, including the exact hairstyle tied into a bun, the trademark creepy white eyes, and all the other bits and pieces. She’s even added a hint of a portal effect in her hand, which looks great.

People have said nothing but kind words and praise for her cosplay, and it’s well-deserved. “What do you mean by cosplay? This is Wraith,” wrote one user. “10/10 best one yet!” wrote another.

Esha shared her photos on Instagram too, and her followers loved it. If you’re able to appeal to the masses, as well as your followers, then you know it’s good! She even managed to capture the character’s attitude, which is hard to do.

Apex Legends is still going strong in 2021, and the community is as solid as ever. Still, it’s wonderful to see talented cosplayers like Esha re-create their favorite characters and show them some love.

In a sense, it reminds fans of how passionate the player base is and allows them to get a better idea of what the Legends might look like in real life.

Apex Legends drops first teaser for Season 8 Legend and new planet

Apex Legends is in the final stretch of Season 7, now gearing up for Season 8. That means Respawn are starting to roll out teasers for the next Legend, possible new modes, and even another planet.

On January 15, Apex Legends released a new version of the classic Kings Canyon map out of the blue. On it, Mirage Voyage was back, but there was also some interesting teasers in the sky.

Then, later that same day, they posted on social media what looks to be our first clue about what’s coming in Season 8.

This new teaser mentions Salvo, which we’ve heard about before in Apex Legends. It also features a handshake – and the hands are potentially our first look at the Season 8 Legend.

Season 8 teaser

This teaser wasn’t in-game, but instead posted on the official Apex Legends Twitter and Instagram accounts. It was captioned ‘New Blood’ – possibly a hint at ‘new blood’ joining the Apex games.

In the teaser, we see a handshake between someone representing the planet Salvo, and someone representing the Syndicate. If you’re unaware, the Syndicate are the people behind the Apex Games.

The text reads “The Syndicate and Salvo… United at Last. Approved by the Committee of Unification Board.” If you’re confused about what this means we’ll explain below. The image is then stamped with the logo of Salvo M.C. (presumably Salvo Motorcycle Club).

What is Salvo in Apex Legends?

Salvo is another planet in the Outlands, and one that has been independent of the Syndicate, up until now. The most important information we have about Salvo comes from a letter that was on Wattson’s desk. The letter read:

“I am writing to inform you that Salvo – which rejected the Mercenary Syndicate’s position to join Syndicate Space in 2722 – is now being guided by new leadership sympathizers to the cause of peace within the Outlands.

Talks with this new administration was prolonged, but ultimately fruitful; as of today, the Mercenary Syndicate Treaty has been amended, and Salvo will become the seventh world to join Syndicate Space.

Salvo brings with it [redacted]. In the coming [redacted] Office of Public Relations will be rolling out a social [redacted] to dispel inaccuracies about [redacted] to create an appropriate [redacted] for their integration into the Syndicate, [redacted] including exciting new developments within the Apex Games.

At this time do not correspond with the Legends regarding this matter. Expect further instructions [redacted] our office in the days to come.”

The letter on Wattson’s desk told us about Salvo and the Syndicate.

Is Salvo a new map?

This is unlikely, at least for the time being. We just got a new map for Season 7 after all. Salvo is a planet too, rather than a singular location (e.g. Olympus is a city on the planet Psamathe).

Season 8 Legend

More likely, Salvo is the home planet of the new Legend, who data miners believe will be called Fuse, and whose abilities will be about explosives (which would actually tie into the name ‘salvo’.)

Another hint is the spaceship we can now see above the map on Kings Canyon and Olympus. The ship has a message which reads simply ‘Salvo Joins Syndicate.’

Expect to see more teasers about Season 8, Salvo and the new Legend in the coming weeks. Season 8 is due to begin in early February, to tie in with the two-year anniversary of Apex Legends.
