Skins

With the release of the Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event trailer, we finally got a glimpse at the skins. As with every Collection Event, there will be a total of 24 items to unlock. Obtain them all and the Heirloom is yours.

The theme will be around Pirates, which is very fitting for Storm Point’s tropical setting. The skins featured in the collection are Pirate-themed, decorated with skull and bones, eye patches, and also bandanas.

Further, as well as the collection, there will also be various other skins available in the store during the event.

Winter Express LTM

As many will know, the Holo-day Bash event this year has been implemented into the Raider’s Collection Event. This means that from December 7 to December 21, players will be able to drop into the Winter Express LTM.

Players will be able to choose their loadout this year and drop down towards the World’s Edge train to battle it out in a round-based mode that sees the last team standing on the train win.

The train will move to various POIs as the rounds go on, so make sure you’re sticking with the team and being aware of your surroundings as you battle for control of the train.

Wattson Heirloom

The Apex Legends Raiders Collection Event will also bring a new Heirloom for players to unlock through obtaining all 24 items in the collection.

This season’s Heirloom is for Wattson. The Wattson Heirloom was previously leaked, and it seems the design was spot on.

The Heirloom looks like some sort of electric prodding device that features emotes with a Nessie plushie. The Heirloom also seems to have a digital screen with a Nessie Tamagotchi that Wattson can interact with and keep happy.

This Nessie Tamagotchi will likely react to Wattson’s actions like when she gets a kill with it or even if she just pulls it out.

Challenges & rewards

The Raiders Collection Event also brings a brand new reward tracker for players to get through. Players will need to gain Event Points by completing challenges.

The rewards include Pirate-themed Charms, a Crypto skin, an Alternator skin, and a Hemlock skin.


That’s all the information we have on the Apex Legends Season 11 Raiders Collection Event. If you’re interested in the patch notes coming out along with the event, be sure to check them out too.

Apex Legends players convinced dev teased Loba Heirloom is next

An Apex Legends developer may have teased which Legend will be receiving an Heirloom in the Season 14 update.

Published

Apex Legends players are convinced that a Respawn Entertainment dev is hinting that Loba is next in line for an Heirloom.

Apex Legends Season 14 is officially here, and while players are still getting to grips with Vantage and some of the changes made in the patch notes, many are looking forward to the next update.

A new season of Apex Legends means new events, which also means a brand-new Heirloom for one of the Legends without one. This season the new Level Cap increase means that all players have the chance to gain a free Heirloom, but which Legend will get theirs in Season 14?

In Season 13 we saw Valkyrie get her Suzaku, and it seems a dev has teased that Loba’s Heirloom is next in line.

Moy Parra, the Lead Animator for Apex Legends at Respawn Entertainment posted an intriguing gif and caption on August 13, which many believe is a major hint to who will be getting an Heirloom next.

The gif is of Loba, and the caption states that the Legend has been on the developer’s mind recently, perhaps suggesting that the devs have been working on the Heirloom, and maybe Moy has even been designing the animations for it.

Over on the Apex Legends subreddit, some have been highlighting this tweet, also believing that it could be a teaser for the “next heirloom.”

We’ll have to wait and see what the new Heirloom will be, but it’s not the first time we have heard rumors surrounding Loba’s, as leakers have previously suggested the design and release date of Loba’s Heirloom.

Apex Legends players want major changes to “worst” Battle Pass in gaming

Players have explained why Apex Legends has the “worst” Battle Pass in gaming and want Respawn to make some changes.

Published

Apex Legends players are frustrated with the current state of the battle royale title’s Battle Pass, with some calling it the “worst” one in gaming and calling for major changes.

Each seasonal update of Apex Legends features a new Battle Pass to progress through and doing so will grant you a plethora of in-game rewards, including new cosmetic skins for your favorite Legends.

However, the Apex Legends community is not pleased with the game’s Battle Pass, as many players want Respawn Entertainment to bring some significant changes to its progression and rewards.

Reddit user ‘DudeWithName’ expressed their frustration with the Battle Pass, claiming that it “feels like a slog” to progress through and doesn’t have enough good content to justify how long it takes to unlock rewards.

When the Redditor asked other players if they find the Battle Pass enjoyable, many of them agreed with the post’s sentiment and shared their own criticisms in the comments of the thread.

One user expressed that Apex Legends easily has “the worst” Battle Pass system of any battle royale title that they’ve played, claiming that they find it extremely difficult to unlock cosmetics across the 100 tiers.

They then added that the only thing they look forward to is the Legendary Packs. However, the Redditor praised that you can earn more Apex Coins than you end up spending in the Battle Pass, describing it as the “only redeeming thing about it.”

Apex Legends Season 14 features a brand-new Battle Pass with a new skin for Wattson along with other free rewards, and the players in this thread were not impressed with the included content.

One of the commenters stated that they were only interested in the Legendary skins but even those weren’t that impressive. They then described all the other unlockable rewards in the Battle Pass as “junk.”

A common criticism in the thread was that it has too many “filler items” that players don’t care about. One user feels that season trackers shouldn’t be included as they become “obsolete” after the season ends.

They claimed that filler items from Siege and For Honor’s Battle Passes are better in comparison. So, players in the thread feel that removing these items and adding different rewards would incentivize them to progress through the tiers.

It remains to be seen if Respawn Entertainment will respond to these criticisms. Season 14 brought a major change to the Battle Pass challenges so that they will feature both a Battle Royale and non-Battle Royale option.

This was done to ensure that players can complete their challenges in each game mode. So, it’s possible that the developers will implement more Battle Pass changes in a future update, and we’ll be sure to let you know if they do.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 14 pick rates

Apex Legends Season 14 is here, but which Legends are dominating Season 14 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?

Published

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 14 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 14 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 22 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 14 now here, the new Legend Vantage has already knocked some fan-favorite characters out of the running.

Let’s see how the current roster’s pick rates are looking to give us an idea of the most popular Legends in Apex Legends Season 14.

Apex Legends Season 14 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 14 ranked, as of August 12, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Vantage – 11.7%
  2. Octane – 10.1%
  3. Wraith – 9.3%
  4. Bloodhound – 7.8%
  5. Pathfinder – 7.8%
  6. Valkyrie – 6.8%
  7. Horizon – 5.5%
  8. Bangalore – 4.5%
  9. Lifeline – 4.3%
  10. Seer – 3.9%
  11. Loba – 3.5%
  12. Fuse – 3%
  13. Ash – 3%
  14. Mirage – 2.6%
  15. Mad Maggie – 2.6%
  16. Newcastle – 2.3%
  17. Caustic – 2.3%
  18. Revenant – 2.2%
  19. Wattson – 1.9%
  20. Gibraltar – 1.9%
  21. Rampart – 1.6%
  22. Crypto – 1.3%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 14

5. Pathfinder – 7.8%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 7.8%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

4. Bloodhound – 7.8%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 14.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark the seasons go on, and they have dropped slightly to 7.8%. Don’t let that put you off though, as they are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

3. Wraith – 9.3%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number three with a 9.3% pick rate in Season 14.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 14.

2. Octane – 10.1%

apex legends octane character

With a 10.1% pick rate, the speed demon has been dropped to the number two spot but continues his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 14, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.

1. Vantage – 11.7% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 14

Vantage and Echo in Apex Legends

Of course, it’s the brand-new Legend Vantage that takes the top spot in Apex Legends Season 14. With an 11.7% pick rate, Vantage has stolen the show from other top Legends such as Octane and Valkyrie.

Vantage’s incredible popularity is probably due to her being new, but she’s not to be trifled with either. Her Sniper Rifle is an incredibly strong weapon, she’s able to wall run, and has a direct counter to Mirage.

How her pick rate will change throughout Season 14 remains to be seen, but she’s well-worth using on the overhauled Kings Canyon.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 14. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out why Mad Maggie has climbed up the rankings this season.
