Caustic is one of the most powerful Apex Legends characters around, and if you’re impressed by the legend in-game, wait until you see this cosplay! 

Even over a year after its original release, Apex is still one of the most popular battle royale games on the market, with it regularly being in the top streamed games on Twitch every day. 

Because of this, it’s no surprise that fans are making more and more cosplays based off of characters featured in the game itself.

One of the Defensive legends in the game is Caustic, who uses poison gas to impair and kill his enemies.

His “Nox gas” can be blanketed across areas and is used to slowly damage anyone caught in its way. Needless to say, it’s a formidable character. One of his more premium skins, Blackheart, was released in 2019 and changes the look of Caustic substantially, giving him (at least cosmetically) a more warrior-esque look.

Towards the end of 2019, Reddit user SameerTeekaMasala created an absolutely spot-on cosplay based on the previously mentioned skin.

Now, their friend created an edit for the cosplay that looks like it could be ripped right out of the game itself.

The edit is absolutely fitting for the character. Green smoke engulfs him as if it’s spewing out of the Legend. 

If that wasn’t creepy enough, there are even skulls in the gas itself, adding even more to the threatening nature of Caustic.

Finally, it’s only fitting that one his more notable lines “In the end, everything dies” is written at the bottom of the image, completing the look. 

Right now, things are looking good for Apex Legends. The game’s new season is set to start in just a little under a month, on August 18. 

That, combined with the fact that the game will be getting crossplay support and will be coming to Nintendo Switch in a few months, means that fans of the game definitely won’t be bereft of content, at least for the near future.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
