A new Queen of Hearts Wraith skin is available for free to Apex Legends players with a Prime Gaming subscription in January 2021. Here’s how you can get this brand new Twitch skin for yourself.
The Fight Night Collection event brought a plethora of brand new bug fixes, buffs, nerfs, and quality-of-life updates to Apex Legends, along with some new cosmetics. Now a new skin has become available for Wraith players during January 2021.
If you’re an Apex fan that has a subscription to Prime Gaming (previously known as Twitch Prime), then you can get yourselves a brand-new Wraith skin known as the Queen of Hearts. All you have to do is follow a few easy instructions.
How to get Wraith’s Queen of Hearts Prime Gaming skin for free
The first thing that you should note is that if you’ve got a subscription to Amazon Prime, then you don’t need to sign up for anything else. This already makes you a Prime Gaming subscriber, so you’re eligible to receive the new free skin.
Here’s how you can make sure that you you can get Wraith’s Queen of Hearts Prime Gaming skin on January 14, 2021, when it releases:
- Log in to the Prime Gaming website
- Visit the Apex Legends section
- Click “Claim Now” on the Queen of Hearts skin when it goes live
- The skin will then become available in your in-game inventory
That’s all you need to do in order to acquire this exclusive new look for Wraith. Once you’ve got it, you can make the Legend resemble a queen of hearts playing card. This makes the skin look unique, and aesthetically cool.
If your EA account is not linked with Twitch already then you will have to link the two at the EA website before you can claim it.
At the moment, this skin can only be received by subscribers of Prime Gaming, and won’t become available for other players anytime soon. This is normally the case with other skins on this platform as well, so it’s not surprising.
Recently, Prime Gaming also granted its subscribers access to the Inverse Polarity skin for Horizon up until December 28. At the time of writing, how long the Wraith skin will remain available, but we’ll be sure to update you once we do.
Wraith is one of the most popular Legends among the Apex community, so releasing a new exclusive skin for her is a nice gesture. Make sure you get your hands on it when it releases on January 14, 2021.

Apex Legends ranked leaderboard shows top players across all platforms
We’ve found the top players across all platforms for Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, so let’s get into the details of the Apex Legends ranked leaderboard.
For those interested in seeing who the top players are across all platforms for Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, or maybe even want to check where they are themselves, let’s get into how you can check out the Apex Legends ranked leaderboard.
Apex Legends is now halfway through its ninth season, with the ranked split commencing just yesterday.
Although there is still no cross-progression in Apex Legends, some players may still be interested in viewing the ranked leaderboard for all platforms just out of curiosity, or perhaps you connect with friends and play in other platform’s lobbies due to cross-play.
There is a great website that players who are serious about playing Ranked Leagues should get familiar with for those interested.
Apex Legends ranked leaderboard
One thing to remember when viewing the ranked leaderboard is that placements are constantly chopping and changing, with players losing and gaining RP (ranked points) every day.
Here is the current top ten standings across all platforms for Ranked Leagues as of today:
There are some familiar names in the top ten for those familiar with the Apex Legends Global Series (ALGS). Both C9_StayNaughty and G2_Dezignful recently competed in the ALGS Championship finals, where C9 actually came second, just behind team Kungarna.
This Apex Legends ranked leaderboard shows player level on the far right while also showing the amount of RP the player currently has under “Ranked Score.”
If you’re just interested in one particular platform, you can also view the ranked leaderboard for that specific platform. Further, the website, apextracker, will also show you various leaderboards, from most kills with a particular Legend to current season wins.

Apex Legends players want the Battle Pass system from Halo: Infinite
The unique Battle Pass system of Halo: Infinite is proving popular with fans, and Apex Legends players want Respawn to take notes from it.
The highly anticipated Halo: Infinite will come with a unique new Battle Pass system that’s proving popular with FPS fans, and Apex Legends players are asking Respawn for something similar.
There was a lot to unpack in Halo: Infinite’s multiplayer reveal which gave us a close look at a variety of different features. This included the brand-new Battle Pass system that comes with a unique feature.
Rather than giving you a limited amount of time to unlock various cosmetics, 343 Industries have made it so that a Battle Pass will never expire even when new ones come out, and you can pick which Pass to progress through.
Now, Apex Legends fans are asking for Respawn to try something similar.
Reddit user Raxus001 took to the Apex Legends subreddit to ask Respawn Entertainment to take influence from Halo: Infinite’s new Battle Pass system.
Whenever a new season of Apex Legends arrives, you’re presented with a brand-new Battle Pass to progress through. However, this means that you can no longer complete the one from the previous season.
“It would be a brilliant idea to have a menu tab in the lobby that allows us to look back on all the battle passes in Apex and purchase any that we missed,” wrote the Redditor.
Adopting this Battle Pass system would grant you the chance to get any cosmetic rewards that you may have previously missed out on.
Many players pointed out that this would profitable for both the fans and developers since Respawn would still get the money used to purchase new and old Battle Passes.
So far, the developers haven’t addressed this suggestion, and we don’t know if they’ll adopt a similar Battle Pass system to Halo: Infinite after the Legacy Update ends. We’ll keep checking for any new developments regarding this.

When is cross-progression coming to Apex Legends
Apex Legends is cross platform for Xbox, PC and PlayStation. Find out if your progression will follow you around all the systems here.
Apex Legends has cross-platform play available and is now on pretty much every platform, with a Mobile version soon to be released publicly. Now there is one thing on players’ minds – Apex Legends cross-progression.
Since the original launch of Apex Legends in February 2019, the game has made many strides towards catching up with competitors Fortnite and Call of Duty Warzone. First, it began with its cosmetic store & seasonal battle pass system, capitalizing on its free-to-play status with microtransactions for players.
Next up, it launched its cross-play system on October 6, 2020 – uniting players across consoles and PC. The crossplay system is different from competitors since PC players will only still be placed against other PC players. However, console players can still queue with PC friends, but they will, in turn, be exclusively placed against PC players.
Forwarding to the present, players are merging across platforms. Many console players are making the jump to the PC platform due to the recent performance jump of the RTX 3000 graphics cards, and some Xbox players are jumping to PlayStation and vice versa.
When is cross-progression coming to Apex Legends?
So for players jumping across platforms, will your progression follow you? The short answer is no. Currently, there is no way to have your Apex Legends rank and skins follow you to another platform. The only exception is changing between the Origin launcher to Steam on PC, where you will have your data transfer over.
There is good news for players who are still waiting for cross-progression to come to Apex Legends. It still appears to be on the developer’s to-do list, with Respawn’s Game Director Chad Grenier commenting on the subject in a Reddit post.
“It’s something we are very passionate about, and we’re looking at our options available. Much harder post-launch since users may have multiple accounts to merge or use. Easier with Steam because it’s at launch. We’ll give an update when we have something to talk about.”
Based on Grenier’s comment, it appears that Cross Progression has a chance to come in the future, but it is currently a difficult task for the team due to users who have multiple accounts across platforms.
For those cases, it looks like Respawn might offer an account merge option of some type, which may be tricky for them to implement back end.
Since these comments, there has been a further update on the situation by Chad Grenier, who stated in another Reddit AMA that “it’s still a ways off.”
Hopefully, the devs can figure out how to implement cross-progression into Apex Legends. This would make life much easier for those who wish to change the platform without sacrificing their account data.
