Like other free-to-play games, Apex Legends’ cosmetics like skins are extremely sought after and highly anticipated by players, especially when they leak and are unreleased after some time.
Since the Chaos Theory update, dataminers among the community have discovered a plethora of unreleased skins, some that players will never see.
The unreleased cosmetics range from recolors of previous fan favorites, as well as some completely new skins that players could see in the near future.
Leaked and unreleased Apex Legends Season 9 skins and recolors
Dataminer @Shrugtal is a reliable leaker who even describes himself as the “Apex Legends skin prophet,” as he has leaked many skins that have eventually entered the game.
In one of his latest posts, he showed off some new skin recolors for Wraith and Horizon, as well as some weapon recolors for the Volt and R-301.
Shrugtal is expecting these recolors to enter the exclusive store in Season 9, which is just two weeks away. The names for these new skins are also given, as well as the original skins you will need in order to purchase them with Legend Tokens.
Shrugtal was also responsible for the leak of Iron Crown reskins in the War Games update that is currently ongoing in Apex Legends.
We also have the Golden Week sale to look forward to, which will feature recolors of Octane and Bloodhounds skins, as well as banner frames and a charm.
Leaked and unreleased Apex Legends bundle skins
The latest Legend to be revealed, Valkyrie, has also had her launch bundle skins leaked, which was seen in the new trailer by Shrugtal.
The bundle skin will feature similar attire to Titanfall’s Viper, a character who manned the Northstar for the Apex Predators during the Frontier War.
You can expect this skin to be available in the store come March 4th, when Season 9: Legacy is released and players can finally get their hands on Valkyrie.
Another bundle we will be seeing in the future is the Mirage Edition skin bundle, which was leaked a little while ago by @Biast12.
This skin looks great, with a futuristic cowboy look, fitting perfectly with Mirage’s flashy style. This also has a Volt weapon skin and charm to go along with it, which fits the futuristic cowboy look very nicely.
Unreleased Chinatown Market collaboration skins
The Chinatown Market Apex Legends collaboration skins were meant to be released on March 30th, however, following the campaign to stop Asian hate, the company decided they were going to rebrand, bringing the collab to a halt.
The skins included in this collaboration were leaked, and although the new rebrand could take on a similar style, just with different name branding, they could also look completely different.
This would mean these leaked skins will never come to fruition, which would be a shame considering how amazing they look.
These Apex Legends unreleased skins should all be seen in the future in some way or another, so keep an eye out in the store and stay tuned on Charlie Intel for updates and news.

Apex Legends dev responds to Season 9 triggering ‘the fear of glitter’
An Apex Legends player with ‘sparkalaphobia’ and epilepsy can’t play Season 9, and devs said they’re taking the issue seriously.
After an Apex Legends player with ‘sparkalaphobia’ – the fear of glitter – and epilepsy explained how the new Bocek Bow prevents them from playing Season 9, a dev said they’re taking the issue seriously.
An Apex Legends player has long been suffering from ‘sparkalaphobia,’ the fear of glitter, but it’s come to a head after the Bocek Bow has triggered epileptic seizures. In a Reddit post on May 6, the player explained to Respawn Entertainment that Season 9 is the first season they “can’t truly play,” as the Bocek Bow’s arrows shimmer in a way that triggers their epilepsy.
Sparkalaphobia is defined as the fear of glitter, but for Reddit user sky-m1n, it’s their epilepsy that gives them the fear. “It’s not the glitter I’m afraid of,” described sky-m1n. “But the overexposure of light that’s the issue.”
In a Reddit post explaining the problem to Apex’s devs, they said, “I can stare at a static image no problem, give me a white noise channel and I’m fine, Christmas ornament sure too, but once you flicker a halogen while it rotates, the reflections start to hurt.”
sky-m1n then described how when a seizure is triggered, you get a “sudden tense sensation rushing behind your skull,” a burning image in your eyes, and a “snapping of your neck from the jerk.”
“Then it hits you, brain.exe gets deleted and you stare into the abyss as if blindness took over,” they continued. “The worst is that with brain.exe dead, your body can forget to breathe and you drown in lifelessness until it all comes back. That’s what scares me.”
How this relates to Apex Legends Season 9 is the Bocek Bow’s arrows shimmer with a pulsing yellow light when they’re on the ground or embedded in a surface. “I feel uneasy, the pulse gets under my skin and the more arrows there are, the more uncomfortable it becomes,” sky-m1n described.
It sometimes gets to the point that sky-m1n has to force close the game and cradle themself as they “can feel like an epileptic seizure coming.”
The post received a ton of attention on Reddit, and Respawn Entertainment’s director of comms, Ryan K. Rigney, responded to the thread. He said “never even heard of this before, but I think we ought to take it seriously. Letting the team know.”
Hopefully the devs are quick to address this issue so that sky-m1n and other players with epilepsy can continue to enjoy Apex Legends in Season 9.

Unreleased Apex Legends Legacy Valkyrie skins revealed by dataminers
Apex Legends Season 9: legacy saw the introduction of new Legend, Valkyrie and dataminers have already found some new recolors for her skins.
Apex Legends’ newest addition hasn’t been out for long, as the Legacy update was released on May 4th. However, dataminers have still managed to find further upcoming content for the new character, including some interesting recolors of some Apex Legends Valkyrie skins.
Apart from the server issues on release day, the latest Legend, Valkyrie, has been available for fans to experience, bringing a new dimension to the game’s roster. Dataminers have been quick to explore the new code, revealing some of the new Legends’ upcoming skin recolors.
The new update has allowed dataminers to provide fans with some interesting insights into upcoming Apex Legends content. They have revealed two future events, Origins and Arenas Flash, and presented 3 new recolors for Valkyrie’s base skins.
Apex Legends Valkyrie skins & recolors
Dataminer @Shrugtal is the one responsible for these new leaks, as well as the Revenant heirloom that was also revealed recently.
The skin recolors revealed are for these base Legendary skins:
- Military Grade
- Assure Blessing
- Titan Tested
When will the recolors come out?
It’s unsure when players will be able to purchase these recolors, especially as these are just leaks and anything datamined is subject to change, as it has not yet been announced or revealed by Respawn Entertainment in an official capacity.
However, we know that skin recolors are usually available to purchase in the exclusive store with Legend Tokens if you have the correct base skin.

Apex Legends devs address Season 9 loot issues
Various Apex Legends players have noticed some issues with the loot following the Season 9 update, and Respawn have responded to this.
While Apex Legends Season 9 brought a ton of new content to the battle royale, it also faced major server outages and various problems with in-game loot that Respawn Entertainment is investigating.
The Apex Legends Legacy update added a huge amount of new content being to the game. The update brought a brand-new battle pass, a new Legend named Valkyrie, 3v3 mode Arena, and a host of patch notes.
However, it also brought a host of server issues that kept players from logging into the battle royale. Now, there are other problems with the in-game loot, and Respawn Entertainment is looking into it.
Popular streamer Daltoosh discussed the Legacy update on Twitter and pointed out a notable decrease in the number of in-game backpacks and rare armors. Many of the commenters claimed to have noticed the same thing.

This led to a response from Apex Legends’ Producer, Josh Medina, who reassured fans that he’d have “folks check out the loot.” Respawn made very various changes to the loot pool due to the new starter kits.
The new kits will spawn you in with a level 1 shield, knockdown shield, and helmet, along with two syringes and two shield cells. The level 1 armor has been made much rarer, while level 1 helmets and knockdown shields have been removed.
It’s possible that this may have caused some unintentional changes to the in-game backpacks and the frequency of higher shield levels as well.
Unfortunately, players of the battle royale will have to put up with this problem in Apex Legends Season 9 until a fix is found. That said, it’s at least encouraging to hear that the developers are aware of it and are working on a solution.
