Apex Legends leak reveals possible Crypto Heirloom and Bow Weapon

New leaks from data miners suggest Crypto’s Heirloom could be a traditional Korean sword, and that we could also be seeing a new bow weapon enter the game soon.



Apex Legends Crypto Heirloom and Bow Weapon

The latest news from trustworthy dataminers reveals that the next Heirloom is “likely” to be a sword-like weapon for Crypto, along with new information on the previously leaked bow weapon.

Apex Legends developers, Respawn Entertainment, have seen a massive surge in their player base within Season 8. After releasing on Steam in November 2020 and Nintendo Switch in March 2021, Apex is at an all-time high leaving even more players hungry for leaks and information surrounding future content.

Heirlooms were once rare in Apex, as Wraith was the only Legend to possess one back when the game was first released. Now, in season 8, nine Legends have Heirlooms and the quest to find who’s Heirloom is next is very much still a topic of intrigue.

Apex Legends Current Heirlooms

Crypto Heirloom

Although Apex news has been slow as of recent, new leaks broke out yesterday suggesting a possible plan for Crypto’s Heirloom to enter the game next.

Dataminers @Biast12 and @Someonewholeaks are trustworthy sources who have been responsible for leaks that have come to fruition such as Bangalore’s heirloom. However, this is of course all speculation according to datamined code in the game’s files, so take it with a pinch of salt.

Although many believe it could still be Wattson, as chronologically it would make sense for her to receive an Heirloom next, new information suggests there is more credibility behind a Crypto Heirloom.

Biast revealed that code in the game’s files presented Crypto’s Heirloom as a ‘katana’-esc weapon, which is ultimately more information than what is currently known about Wattson’s.

Although there is no render or leaked image of this Heirloom, Biast did post an image of this traditional Korean weapon called a “Jikdo”, which is a good reference for what we could be seeing when it is finally released.

Although there is no confirmed time frame for when this Heirloom will be available, it is likely that it will be added in the next collection event, after both the War Games takeover and recently delayed Chinatown Market sale.

New Bow Weapon

As well as this Heirloom leak, we also received further information surrounding the new compound bow weapon that was leaked a while back.

Dataminer @HumanSAS_ recently shared more information on the new bow weapon on Twitter and YouTube, revealing that it will belong to the marksman class, taking the same ammo as snipers.

This gives us a rough idea as to the type of damage output and role this weapon will be utilising, taking on a more sniper-oriented play-style.

The bow supposedly has two modes, perhaps a single and burst mode much like other weapons in the game. However, this is again speculation and the two modes feature with the bow could be completely exclusive to this particular weapon.

It is not clear as to when we will be seeing this new weapon or even Crypto’s Heirloom. However, as Season 8 will be ending within a month, it is likely this new content will be arriving in the next couple seasons.

Perhaps we will see the bow in a LTM next season, as players know Respawn like to test new content in these limited time modes before they release as a sort of public play-test.

You will find that two different challenges can be completed to add this weapon to your inventory. One of these challenges must be completed when you are either playing Cold War Multiplayer or Warzone.

This challenge tasks players with getting a One Shot, One Kill medal, and a melee kill in the same life in 15 different matches.

The start of Season 3 for Cold War saw this weapon become available for players to earn immediately. However, it will not be available for players to earn in Warzone until mid-season.

It is important to remember that you must complete the match you are playing for progress towards this unlock challenge to count. All progress will get lost if you do not finish the match.

Zombie players can acquire this weapon by killing a total of 300 enemies while using a Special or Melee weapon. However, the Special or Melee weapon must be Epic or Legendary quality.

The community also can get two other new weapons during this new period of content besides the Ballistic Knife when they unlock the PPSH submachine gun and the Swiss K31 sniper rifle. The best loadout for the PPSH and Swiss K31 will pair perfectly with the Ballistic Knife and allow for some impressive performances by players.

Best FOV Setting for Apex Legends

Apex Legends has a variety of settings which can enhance experience, FOV is one of these options but what’s the best number to have it at?



apex legends best fov

Apex Legends has a variety of settings for players to customize the experience to their liking completely. This is great, especially when it comes to FOV, as even console players can change this setting to give them the best advantage possible.

Apex Legends developers, Respawn Entertainment, are known for their great communication with the players, implementing requested changes, and even settings.

Unlike many other games, most Apex Legends settings that we see on PC are also on consoles, allowing controller players a wide variety of options to compete with those on more powerful hardware systems. For those unaware, this also goes for FOV, which could be a game-changer for your experience in Apex Legends if you haven’t customized it yet.

Apex Legends FOV best setting

What is FOV?

FOV stands for field of view, which is essentially the size of the viewing angle on the screen. If this setting is higher, it will allow for a bigger viewing angle, letting players see more around them. If this setting is lower, it will decrease the viewing angle.

The default FOV on Apex Legends is set to 70, which to most experienced players is extremely low. The setting goes all the way up to 110.

What Apex Legends FOV setting is best?

Depending on your setup, the sweet spot or best FOV seems to be between 96 and 104. If you play on a bigger TV, you’re going to want to have your FOV on the higher end of the scale, as the bigger screen will allow you to still see up to longer ranges even with a higher FOV.

Of course, like all settings, it’s completely up to preference and your set up. However, one obvious thing is anything under 70 FOV is a huge disadvantage, as it will completely limit your ability to read what’s going on around you.

Apex Legends Best FOV

A high FOV on a smaller screen or monitor may distort your viewing and prevent you from seeing things at longer ranges, so in this case, you may want to keep your FOV in the 90s.

Ultimately, having your FOV between 90-104 will put you at an advantage over those with the default or lower, as you will be able to see more on the screen and react much quicker to situations. Lower FOV’s can feel too zoomed in and restricted, but FOV’s that are too high can feel too distant, so find what works best for you.

After setting a new, higher FOV, you may also want to play around with your sensitivity and increase that, too, as these settings scale, and a higher FOV might make your original sensitivity feel too slow.

Here’s where you can find all of the safe locations on the Fortnite Island for the Epic Quest in Chapter 2, Season 6 Week 6 to earn some nice rewards for your troubles.



safes in Fortnite

You can find and open various safes around Fortnite Island to obtain some Gold Bars, and one of the Season 6 Week 6 Epic Quests requires you to open three. Here’s how you can find these locations on the map.

You can tackle the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 challenges for the opportunity to earn a bunch of extra XP. This can help you unlock some impressive new cosmetics while progressing through the Season 6 Battle Pass.

One of this week’s Epic Quests requires you to find and open three safes on Fortnite Island. We’ve decided to make things a bit easier for you by putting together all the safe locations in the battle royale.

Fortnite Season 6 Safe Locations

All safe locations in Fortnite Season 6

The good news is that you can find safes when visiting most POIs in Fortnite Season 6. Some of these areas have more safes than others, so you’ll want to look around in the more heavily populated ones.

Since the challenge only requires you to find and open three of them, you’ll want to visit one of the areas with the highest number of safes in them. These are Sweaty Sands, Craggy Cliffs, Dirty Docks, Holly Hedges, The Spire, and Pleasant Park.

You can take a look at all the safe locations in Fortnite Season 6 on the map below:

You’ll be able to complete this Epic Quest much quicker by visiting Sweaty Sands since it has a total of seven safes for you to open. Even if a few enemies come here for the same purpose, you’ll still find enough safes to open on your own.

You can take a look at the location of each safe within Sweaty Sands on the Fortnite map below:

There’s another safe hidden inside the building at the end of the pier, so you can visit that as well. Like with other Epic Quests, completing this challenge will award you 24,000 XP.

You can try completing the rest of the Epic Quests if you want to progress through the Battle Pass faster. There’s also a Legendary Quest available for a limited time period, so be sure to hop to it.
