Apex Legends Thrillseekers EventEvent

Apex Legends have revealed their next upcoming event for players to enjoy entitled “Thrillseekers,” which was announced along with an action-packed trailer.

Although players are still currently enjoying the new Genesis Collection Event, which has brought nostalgia with the original versions of both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge, it seems the developers are willing to give even more.

Despite some server issues in the past week, Respawn Entertainment is desperate to keep players occupied and enjoying Apex Legends, especially within Arenas, which has been popular due to Skull Town’s introduction to the mode.

When is the Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event?

The Apex Legends Thrillseekers is an Arenas-based event that will drop on July 13 and end on August 3.

Players will be able to log in during this period and participate in event challenges to receive new rewards, including a variety of cosmetics and the option to purchase.

Thrillseekers Event Trailer

The new Thrillseekers Event was first seen over on Steam, where the trailer was premiered. The trailer follows Octane, a true thrillseeker, as he traverses and encounters other Legends in the new Arenas map called “Overflow,” which was previously leaked.

The trailer shows off all the upcoming skins that players can expect from the event and showcases the new Arenas map, which fits well with the thrillseekers theme as players will have to fight amongst an abundance of lava.

Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event rewards and skins

Like most events, the Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event will also host a new reward tracker, allowing players to gain new items for free by completing challenges and playing the game. The Thrillseekers Event will see three weekly reward trackers over the event period. Here are some of the most notable items:

  • July 13 – 20: Devotion skin and Wastelander Rampart skin
  • July 20 – 27: Two Apex Packs and battle pass boosters
  • July 27 – August 3: Boxing charm and Lethal Enforcer Bangalore skin

Apart from these items obtained through completing challenges, players will also have access to an Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event store, which will feature new skins for Legends and even weapon skins for the R-301 and R-99.

Players can opt to purchase individual skins or bundles. The Mirage and Gibraltar bundles feature a charm and banner, whereas the “Head 2 Head” bundle features the Pathfinder and Revenant skins and the R-99 and R-301 skins, which are themed similarly.

These bundles are fairly pricey, but their detail and design are definitely worth the Apex Coins.

Apex Legends Thrillseekers new map: “Overflow”

The new Arenas event will also bring a new Arenas map called “Overflow.” This was previously leaked and will be coming to the game when the event drops.

Arenas have featured various maps since Season 9’s launch, with some already existing POIs taking up the third slot in the rotation after the two Arenas exclusive maps Party Crasher and Phase Runner. Now it seems Arenas will be getting a third Arenas exclusive map in Overflow, which looks very interesting.

The map seems to be set in a similar environment to World’s Edge, featuring loads of lava and an industrial-style foundation. This will be great for getting players either back into or into the 3v3 Arenas mode.

Well, that’s all there is to know about the new Apex Legends Thrillseekers Event. For more Apex Legends updates, stay tuned to Charli INTEL.

Apex Legends Season 10: How Seer could knock Gibraltar out of the meta

Although Seer hasn’t been out for long in Apex Legends, players are starting to see his potential and how he could become a star in the meta.

Apex Legends Seer meta

Apex Legends’ new addition to the roster, Seer, is already proving to be controversial, with some players even claiming he may push Gibraltar out of the meta.

Apex Legends players have been gifted with a host of new content thanks to the Season 10 update. As well as some interesting changes to weapons, Seer has joined the fight and may potentially offer a shift in the current meta.

Of course, some of the Legend buffs and nerfs have also shifted the meta slightly, but some pros are actually claiming that Seer could shift the meta the most out of any Legend, so let’s get into why.

Seer is a new Recon Legend whose abilities are based on gaining information on the enemy’s location.

Further, his tactical, Focus of Attention doesn’t only highlight the enemy when scanned. It also shows their health bar, cancels their healing item if in use, and stops players in the process of reviving downed teammates.

It seems this tactical ability is where players believe the power is, and could potentially be why Gibraltar has pushed out the meta if we see more Seer players in the competitive scene.

Apex Legends Seer shifting the meta

apex legends seer

In a recent stream, professional Apex Legends competitor, Albralelie, said that Seer could be a huge problem in competitive Apex Legends. This is because his tactical can basically stop enemy teams from executing a bubble reset.

A bubble reset is when a team can either get a revive or healable off inside the temporary cover of Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection. This has been a staple strategy of competitive Apex Legends for some time now and is also the main reason Gibraltar is so strong in the scene.

However, with the introduction of Seer, players will basically be able to cancel players healing and reviving inside of the bubble with Seer’s tactical, especially as the ability has a long and wide range, making it easy to hit a whole team inside of the dome.

Further, if timed correctly, Seer will actually be able to fully stop a revive and heal by timing it so that the bubble disappears soon after the cancel, a very strong counter to Gibraltar’s most useful tool.

This could actually see Caustic enter the meta over Gibraltar, especially after his most recent buff that makes his gas more prominent. Caustic’s gas lasts much longer than Gibraltar’s dome. Although it doesn’t offer as much protection, it can give teams more time to reset without having to worry about Seer teams capitalizing off canceling a revive or heal.

This is very interesting, and although it may not happen, as teams may still opt for Bloodhound over Seer, if a strong Seer meta enters the competitive scene, we could see Gibraltar counter more often, forcing players to switch Legends or change playstyles.

Apex Legends players believe Seer is inspired by music star Lil Nas X

Apex Legends players are suggesting that Seer has a very similar aesthetic to music artist Lil Nas X and may have been influential to the design.

Apex Legends Seer Lil Nas X

Some Apex Legends fans are drawing on similarities between the new Legend Seer and popular musician Lil Nas X, suggesting he may have been an influence when the developers were creating the character.

Apex Legends has just dropped its brand new update featuring a variety of changes in the patch notes. As well as Legends and weapons receiving buffs and nerfs, players also get to drop in on a new Decimated World’s Edge and Ranked Arenas playlist, keeping the free-to-play FPS fresh.

As well as all this, players have also been able to get their hands on the new Legend Seer, who has an interesting kit and an intriguing aesthetic that many relate to Lil Nas X.

Lil Nas X is a popular musician who has broken onto the music scene in the last few years. The musician is known for his outlandish outfits, and most notable, his cowboy influence due to his hit song “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus.

Lil Nas X is constantly seen sporting a cowboy hat similar to Seer’s, which seems to be the main reason for their recent comparison by Apex fans on social media.

Of course, both are of similar heritage, with African influence being a heavy part of Seer’s lore and design, even having a skin called “Afrofuturism.” However, the main point of comparison seems to be the personality and aesthetic similarities, possessing flamboyant and extravagant qualities.

Similar to Lil Nas X, Seer also has a musical background, with his mother being a dancer. Seer definitely possesses a spring in his step similar to that of a professional dancer, as he moves very fluidly as if every action is part of a routine.

Their outfits also have a similar aesthetic, with Lil Nas X often pictured with gold accents and a cowboy hat, much like Seer’s launch bundle skin.

Fans on Twitter have already picked up on this, with one user even putting the images side by side to compare, demanding that the devs confirm Seer has some Lil Nas X influence in his design.

We are yet to officially know whether Respawn Entertainment was influenced by Lil Nas X when they were creating Seer.

However, we know Respawn is great at representing communities and all walks of life, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this was their ode to Lil Nas X and his breaking of industry norms.

Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins leaked

The next Apex Legends collection event may have had some of its skins leaked, as a dataminer reveals some new content for a possible Monster event.

Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins

Just like any new update, dataminers have found some new code that hints at an Apex Legends Monster Collection Event, as well as some upcoming themed skins.

Apex Legends fans have been gifted with a brand new season, Emergence, which brought various new updates in the patch notes to freshen up the game. Players have been enjoying the new Legend, Seer, and the various weapon and Legend meta changes.

Although players were given a brand new battle pass with various cosmetics to unlock, it seems dataminers have unveiled even more upcoming content, which has got fans excited.

Apex Legends bloodhound

Popular Apex Legends dataminer Garretleaks has been revealing upcoming content for the battle royale for some time now, becoming a reliable source for leaks.

The latest leak involves the upcoming collection event and the first look at upcoming skins for Revenant and Bloodhound.

Leaked Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins

Garretleaks revealed the codename for the upcoming collection event is “Monsters,” which stands as the theme for the skins we can expect in the event.

For example, the skin Garretleaks revealed is a Revenant skin that depicts the Legend as a werewolf, possibly referencing the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

Some have even been speculating that we could see a Loba skin where she is portrayed as Red Riding Hood in the group of possible Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins.

There is also speculation that the event could revolve around old folk tales and fables that involve monsters, especially as the new Legend, Seer, seems to have a similar back story, with his community ousting him as cursed.

Further, Garret also revealed some holosprays of future Apex Legends Monsters Collection Event skins, which seem to be related to the event. As we know, holosprays often show future skins before they come out, as we had seen a lot of the Genesis Collection Event skins in holospray form before their release.

One of the holospray skins shown was for Bloodhound, which depicts the Legend as a simulacrum, which is pretty controversial as there has been a constant debate about what Bloodhound actually is.
