We’ve found a great way for you to check the Apex Legends item shop without actually being on the game. So let’s get into the details.

Apex Legends is a free-to-play battle royale that contains an in-game store for players to purchase various cosmetics. Apart from collection events and special sales like the recent ALGS Animal Kingdom bundle, the Apex Legends item shop will rotate cosmetics and put recolors up in the exclusive section of the store.

If you’ve ever wanted to see what is in this item shop without actually having to go on the game, there’s an easy way for you to do so.

Although we are yet to see a collection event for Season 9: Legacy, we have seen some new cosmetics enter the game through the Arenas Flash event and Battle Pass.

However, for those looking to get a specific skin or recolor, you may constantly be checking the item shop when it refreshes stock to find that exclusive skin you’ve been waiting for.

If this moment comes when you aren’t able to check the store in-game, there is a handy way to do so without having to boot up Apex Legends.

How to check the Apex Legends item shop

The best way to find out what is in-store on the Apex Legends item shop is through a handy website called apexitemstore.

This website will give you a breakdown of the current items in both the “Featured” section and “Exclusive” section of the item shop, as well as how long they will be in the store.

Featured items are those that can be purchased with Apex Coins and are already in the game. However, although they are in the game, the only way players can obtain these items is through crafting them or in Apex Packs.

Crafting these items takes a lot of Crafting Materials that take a long time to get. Further, getting a specific item in a pack leaves it down to luck, meaning you might have to spend a decent amount of money before getting what you want.

Therefore, the store’s featured items give those players a chance to get a specific item that they want on a one-time purchase with Apex Coins, which is a lifesaver for those who really want a certain skin, especially if it is for a recolor.

Exclusive

Exclusive items are on the right side of the store and are generally called “recolors,” as they are different colorways of already present skins in the game. To purchase exclusive items, players must have the original item of the recolor, which they can purchase with Apex Coins.

Not only does this give players a chance to get a specific skin they have wanted with Apex Coins, but it also throws in a recolor they can purchase with Legend Tokens, which is the game’s free currency that is passively obtained just by playing.

The website also allows players to check out every Legend and weapon skin ever released, recolors and all, which is great for those interested in seeing past items that may become available in the future.

That’s how you can check the current item shop contents in Apex Legends without being in-game. For more, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our recent article on how to unlink and link Apex Legends and EA accounts.

Apex Legends players slam “trash” Ranked system and matchmaking issues

Apex Legends players have called out the game’s “trash” Ranked mode, arguing that the matchmaking is ruining their experience.

Apex Legends players have called out the game’s Ranked matchmaking, claiming it’s placing them in unfair matches against opponents well out of their league.

Apex Legends Season 14 has been well received by the community, with the new character Vantage and other quality of life changes bringing the feel-good factor back to the battle royale.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing, and fans have been quick to point out a number of issues in the new season. Wattson’s fence is still broken despite the fix that was supposed to come in Season 14, while the Battle Pass has also come under fire.

Now, although Respawn did make some welcome changes, players have slammed Apex Legends’ Ranked mode for putting together lobbies with a huge skill gap.

Reddit user Azrael462 started a thread criticizing the state of matchmaking in Apex Ranked, arguing the wide range of ranks that can make up a single lobby make it less enjoyable for those in lower brackets.

“If I am in gold I should be fighting gold people, NOT F*****G PREDS OR MASTERS,” the user ranted. “You can actually say it’s a skill issue here because clearly it is, gold is the third rank below masters and fourth below pred, now fix your f*****g system.”

Apex Legends Ranked mode, like most similar modes, is supposed to work on skill-based matchmaking, where only players of a similar rank are put together to make for an even fight. However, players are noticing that this doesn’t seem to be the case.

The OP seemed to point the blame at streamers, as they felt that the current matchmaking system was designed to give full-time players in higher ranks more chance of finding a lobby, rather than being lumped together in every match.

“I’m tired of getting 1k damage and 3 kills only to still lose 30 RP because OF A F*****G PREDATOR STREAMER,” the Redditor continued. “Listen to the community and not the streamers because clearly they don’t know a f*****g thing.”

Other comments seemed to agree that Ranked mode is becoming more punishing, especially if you happen to be in the Bronze, Silver, or Gold tiers. “Never seen a game with worse matchmaking IMO,” argued one reply. “No other game made me feel so fucking helpless like apex did, not even League [of Legends],” said another.

This has been an ongoing frustration among the Apex community, and players will be hoping to see Ranked mode’s matchmaking given some tweaks during Season 14 or in the Season 15 update.

Apex Legends leakers discover Season 15 Legend in game files

Apex Legends leaks have discovered a brand-new character name in the Season 14 game files, which could be the Season 15 Legend.

An Apex Legends leak may have possibly revealed the name of the Season 15 Legend, which some will remember from a previous huge Legend leak.

Apex Legends Season 14 has just got underway, giving players a brand-new Legend to enjoy, which pro player ImperialHal has some strong opinions about.

A new season of Apex doesn’t just mean a new Battle Pass, Collection Event, and buffs and nerfs in the patch notes, it also means that dataminers have a new game version to sift through and find unreleased information.

As always, these leakers have found new information on Apex Legends Season 15, including who the new Legend could be.

In a YouTube video from Apex Legends content creator bobz, it’s highlighted that dataminers have found a Holospray in the Season 14 game files that has Catalyst in the code: “hspray_epic_v22_catalyst_01.”

Back in Apex Legends Season 12, there was a massive leak that revealed a variety of unreleased Legends. At the time, Legends like Newcastle and Vantage were discovered, giving legitimacy to the leak as these Legends are now available.

In this leak there was also a Legend called Catalyst, who can reinforce cover and create structures with “ferro fluid.”

The fact that this name has popped up in the Season 14 game files as well further suggests that Catalyst will be seen in Apex Legends, and it could even be for Season 15.

It’s obviously a long way out until Season 15, and these are just leaks, so take them with a pinch of salt. However, it would make sense to see Catalyst in Season 15 considering the devs have added a Holospray with the character’s name.

Apex Legends pro ImperialHal explains why players should avoid “trash” Vantage

Apex Legends pro ImperialHal believes the new Season 14 Legend Vantage is “trash,” as he comments on her sniper-focused kit.

Apex Legends Season 14 introduced Vantage as a brand-new Legend, and while most in the community have been enjoying her kit, pro player Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen believes the character is “trash.”

With the Apex Legends Season 14 update, players have finally got their hands on the latest Legend to join the roster, Vantage.

While it may be hard for Vantage to compete with the meta thanks to the buffs for Legends like Mad Maggie and Newcastle, she definitely offers players something different.

This new Recon Legend offers players a unique sniper-focused playstyle that has quite a few tricks already, as players found that Vantage can actually wall run.

With that said, a pro player for TSM is not convinced by Vantage, calling her “one of the worst characters in the game,” especially in Ranked Leagues.

During a stream, ImperialHal shared his opinions on Apex Legends Season 14’s new Legend. While the pro has only had a week to get to know the character, ImperialHal feels that Vantage is “trash.”

While it seems like a pretty harsh take, ImperialHal does explain his opinion, stating that her kit is “really good early game,” but “gets worse as the game goes on.”

ImperialHal goes on, saying that “if you’re fighting off spawn she’s pretty good, but passed like the looting stage I feel like she’s not that good…as soon as it gets like to mid and late game, she’s like one of the worst characters in the game.”

The pro Apex Legends player does give fans of Vantage some hope, however, saying that she could be a really good pair with Newcastle, who received some pretty strong buffs to his kit in Season 14.

Overall, Hal just feels as if her Sniper’s Mark Ultimate ability is not strong enough for late game in ranked, “her ulty just gets really bad when it’s against like purple armors and red armors…playing ranked it just seems like I can’t do anything after the early game.”
