Deathly Revenant cosplay will give Apex Legends fans chills

Revenant is set to make his way into the Apex Legends’ universe during Season 4, and fans are already bringing the deadly simulacrum to life.

Apex Legends’ long-awaited Season 4 trailer provided fans with a plethora of information on Revenant. The Synthetic Nightmare was previously pivotal to the ‘Fight or Fright’ Halloween event, where they pulled the strings during the Shadowfall game mode.

Fans now have a clearer picture of the mysterious character’s roots and what their intentions are, following the ‘Assimilation’ trailer.

A former member of the Mercenary Syndicate, Revenant is seeking revenge on Hammond Robotics.

With that in mind, a cosplayer under the alias ‘nurbzwax’ has created a chilling take on the former Syndicate mercenary.

Complete with Revenant’s stone-cold robotic iris, the cosplayer has paid remarkably close attention to detail, given the scarce information available.

Nurbz has also included Revenant’s contours around the eyes and on their forehead, to ensure that the Legend appears like they’ve been plucked straight out of the in-game files.

The cosplayer captioned their first post, stating: “As soon as I saw this guy, I just had to try and do makeup of him! The short for him was so cool and I watched it at least five times… So excited for Season 4!”

Nurbz’ take on the Synthetic Nightmare is all the more impressive considering the obvious absence of close-up 3D renders — since the character hasn’t even been released yet!

While they admitted that the eyes and symbol were edited into the design, there is no denying that the final product is as close to the mark as it gets.

Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Revenant into the Apex Games, which is locked in for February 4 — although some players have expressed concerns over the size of the Legend’s hitbox

Until then, nurbzwax’s cosplay is the closest we’ll get to the real thing, unless Respawn hit us with another assimilation-themed trailer to add to Revenant’s lore.

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.
