The Apex Legends developers have made a new post that seemingly teases the return of the popular Kings Canyon’s Skull Town POI that was removed a while back.
Long-time fans will remember the Kings Canyon’s Skull Town POI which was a village under a large skeleton. This popular zone was removed back in 2020, but Respawn may have hinted at its return in a new post.
The official Apex Legends Twitter account made a post on June 21, seemingly suggesting that the fan-favorite Skull Town POI will be making a comeback in the near future.
“What if we brought back Skull Town,” wrote the developers. This caused a ton of excitement among Apex fans, and it seems likely that this is a teaser for a future update that the developers have planned.
While the return of Skull Town sounds exciting, we may not see it become part of the main battle royale game mode, since that would require Respawn to completely rework the map.
Skull Town might come back as an Arenas map in the game’s new 3v3 mode. This makes sense since it wouldn’t require a complete overhaul of the current King’s Canyon map.

We currently don’t know when exactly Respawn Entertainment plans to bring this area back to Kings Canyon. It could in the next update or at some later point in the future. The POI might look and play completely different than before.
Still, it’s reassuring to know that, unlike the Mirage Voyager POI, Skull Town might actually return to the game. We’ll keep checking for any more developments regarding this, and will be sure to let you know when it’s confirmed.

Apex Legends best Arenas Legends: Arena Legends ranked
Apex Legends Arenas is a different experience to BR where some characters fare better than others. Here’s our ranked list for the 3v3 mode.
Apex Legends’ 3v3 mode, Arenas, forces an isolated way to play the battle royale which causes some Legends to be more useful than others, so we ranked them all to help you decide on team composition.
There’s a great variety of game modes to choose from in Apex Legends, and while you might be tempted to test your skill in the new Ranked Leagues system for Season 13, Arenas is also a great place for some competition.
Figuring out what Legend to use in Arenas can be a difficult decision, especially when the 3v3 mode is so different from the standard battle royale mode.
With that being said, we ranked all the Legends in Apex according to their viability in the 3v3 mode. Here are the best Legends to use in Arenas.
Best Legends in Apex Legends Arenas for Season 13
Keep in mind that this tier list is solely based on a Legend’s contribution to the team within Arenas, not Respawn‘s battle royale mode. If you’re interested in the best Legends to use for battle royale, check out our piece here:
Remember, due to the nature of Arenas, some of the Legends’ abilities are deemed much less effective, like Loba‘s Black Market. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use them if you would like to, as they can still be great as long as you hit your shots!

Top 3 Legends for Arenas
The interdimensional skirmisher, Wraith, takes the number 3 spot for her offensive capabilities and survivability.
Her small hitbox makes it hard for enemies to get shots off on Wraith, allowing her to move fast and get to where she needs to go.
Being aggressive is vital in Arenas, and Wraith’s abilities allow her to do just that, being able to get in and out of the fight easily with her tactical, as well as make a defensive play with the portal for survivability.
Newcastle is Season 13’s brand-new Legend, and not only does he perform very well in the battle royale, but he also dominates in Arenas, hence why he is at the number two spot.
Newcastle’s Passive shield revive is extremely strong for getting teammates back into the fight, especially if you purchase a Gold Backpack. His Tactical mobile shield is also great for Arenas, as it allows your team to push and put pressure on the enemy team while being behind moving cover.
Lastly, his Ultimate, Castle Wall, can be bought every round, and although it’s quite expensive, the defensive protection and offensive capabilities of blocking off paths and creating advantageous cover in positions of power are extremely powerful.
Lifeline is a great option for Arenas, mainly due to her ability to keep teammates alive and get more health consumables from Loot Bins.
Lifeline’s health drone can get you or a teammate back to full health without the need to pop a syringe or medkit, which could save precious time. Further, although her Ultimate is fairly useless, her Passive drone revive is arguably her best trait for Arenas.
Combine this with the Gold Backpack and you’ll be reviving teammates back with shield and health, which allows them to get right up and help out. This is unbelievably clutch and also the main reason she is number one on our ranked list.
That’s it for our Apex Legends Arenas ranked list. For more on Apex Legends, check out the best guns to use in Season 13.

All Apex Legends Mobile characters: Full roster & exclusive Legends
Apex Legends Mobile offers players a new way to play Respawn’s battle royale, but what Legends are available?
Apex Legends Mobile is a separate entity from the PC and console version of the battle royale. With that being said, let’s take a look at the full roster and exclusive Legends in the mobile shooter.
As well as this, the mobile FPS also has its first mobile-only Legend in Fade, who isn’t being introduced into the PC and console versions of Apex Legends anytime soon, especially as Season 13 just brought Newcastle.
With that being said, what is the Apex Legends Mobile roster, and which Legends are mobile-exclusive?
Apex Legends Mobile full Legend roster
Apex Legends Mobile is a completely separate game from the PC and console version of the battle royale. With that comes a different Legend roster from the main game, and in its current state, it is much smaller.
Currently, there are ten Legends in Respawn‘s Apex Legends Mobile, giving players a decent number to choose from. Players will have to play a fair amount before they are able to unlock all these Legends, but these are the current characters that can be seen in-game:
Of course, as time goes on and the game is updated we may see more Legends from the PC and console version, as well as exclusive Legends, enter the game.
Apex Legends Mobile-exclusive Legends
Currently, Apex Legends Mobile only has one exclusive Legend. With the launch of Apex Legends Mobile, Fade was introduced as the first Mobile-exclusive Legend.

Apex Legends leaks suggest Bangalore’s Prestige skin is arriving in Season 13
Apex Legends leakers have found a design for Bangalore’s Prestige Skin which could be released in one of the events for Season 13.
Apex Legends dataminers may have discovered the next Legend to get a Prestige Skin in Season 13.
Having said that, players are still awaiting the first Collection Event of the season, which is rumored to bring Valkyrie’s Heirloom.
Dataminers have even gone a step further and discovered what Legend will be receiving a Prestige Skin this season.
This makes a lot of sense considering the fact that we have had a lot of Bangalore-lore this season thanks to her brother becoming the new Legend, Newcastle.
Further, as Prestige Skins are based on Titanfall Pilots, we know that Bangalore was training to become one, making this Prestige skin make sense.
In Thordan Smash’s latest video, players can actually see the leaked design of Bangalore’s Prestige Skin, which takes on an IMC-themed Pilot outfit.
We’re unsure what the event containing this Bangalore Prestige Skin will be called. However, as the Valkyrie Heirloom is reported to be included in the leaked Awakened Collection Event, we are expecting to see it in the second event for the season.
Remember, these are just leaks and speculation, so take it all with a pinch of salt. Nothing concerning the next Prestige Skin is confirmed as of yet, but once Respawn provides some new information, we’ll be sure to update this piece.
