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:

  1. Log in to the Prime Gaming website
  2. Visit the Apex Legends section
  3. Click “Claim Now” on the Queen of Hearts skin when it goes live
  4. 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 pro finds Crazy Octane Jump Pad rotation on Olympus

An Apex Legends player landed a huge Octane Jump Pad rotation on Olympus to evade opposition. Here’s how he did it.

apex legends crazy octane jump pad rotation

Apex Legends esports player is responsible for this insane Octane Jump Pad rotation found outside of Gardens on Olympus.

Octane has been a big topic of conversation during Season 8, as the changes to his Jump Pad have been held in high regard.

Mokeysniper, an Apex Legends content creator, recently found and showcased an interesting OCtane rotation strategy in a recent video. He explained how players take the pad from and how to execute the jump.

Apex Legends Gardens

Originally, Octane’s Jump Pad was fairly underwhelming, allowing players to essentially shoot you out the sky. At the same time, wasn’t very useful for covering long distances.

The Season 8 patch allowed players to travel a much further distance when one slides into it. This change has effectively made Octane one of, if not the best rotation legends in the entire game.

Mokey states that he first saw this rotation on NRG Rogue’s Twitter account, @TTrebb, a pro Apex esports player. He also states that he doesn’t know who was the first to find it, as he also saw it on a Reddit post.

Whoever was the first to find this, it’s ambitious and gets you wondering how many other spots there are like this.

Another interesting rotation technique with Octanes Jump Pad is to combine it with the Trident. If you drive a Trident into a pad and use the vehicle’s boost at the same time, you can clear a massive distance and rotate to circle very quickly.

Apex Legends War Games trailer hints at huge Lifeline change

The new Apex Legends War Games event trailer may have hinted at a future Lifeline change that may potentially cause controversy.

Published

on

Apex Legends Lifeline nerf

Ever since the drone revive update for Lifeline in Season 5, players have been calling for her to be nerfed. It seems the new War Games trailer has hinted at a possible change to her kit.

On April 8th, Respawn Entertainment released the trailer for their highly anticipated mini-event, War Games. Not only does this update mean new skins and LTMs, but also a new patch with, of course, meta changes.

Apex Legends developers have admitted to the struggle of balancing Lifeline before, and have even stated that they would like to try a version of Lifeline “without the shield”.

Lifeline Drone Revive

Lifeline was originally one of the characters with the highest win rate in the game due to her passive ability to heal herself quicker than any other Legend.

However, since this passive was removed and replaced by her drone revive, she has become even stronger in the role of support; not just keeping herself alive but also effortlessly reviving her teammates.

In the trailer for War Games, it seems Lifeline’s drone revive remains. However, this time she doesn’t have the protective shield that many have been calling for to be removed.

It seems they will be finally trying out this new change to Lifeline, which could also potentially lead to further changes surrounding the Low Profile passive.

In another recent discussion with the developers, players also found out that Season 8 Legend, Fuse, had the worst win rate of all characters. Perhaps, this Lifeline change will be a part of some larger patch notes which could see less meta characters such as Rampart and Fuse getting changes to their abilities.

Apex Legends is a battle royale that seems to be constantly evolving, with talk of adding more game modes in the future. Although there was some backlash towards the War Games event, with players worried it will ruin the battle royale experience, these new modes draw players to the game and keep the player base fresh.

Apex Legends: how to activate the Season 9 Arena teaser

Apex Legends data miners have foudn out how players can activate a new Season 9 teaser. Here’s how to see it for yourself.

Apex Legends Season 9 Teaser Arena

The most recent leaks from Apex Legends data miners reveal the mystery behind the platform in the Firing Range and how to activate the Season 9 teaser.

After the halfway split for Season 8, players noticed a stranged platform implemented on the left side of the Firing Range map.

For weeks players were unaware of its purpose, but finally, the mystery has been uncovered and is associated with the new upcoming Arena mode.

Season 9 Teaser Arena

Data miner @GarretLeaks was among the few who leaked how players can activate the button found on the Firing Range platform. GarretLeaks has even created a step by step guide of how players can experience the Season 9 Arena teaser:

  • Step 1: Collect keycard from care packages
  • Step 2: Find Holosprays scattered around Kings Canyon
  • Step 3: Find Holosprays scattered around Olympus
  • Step 4: Press the phone in the lobby and listen to the audio
  • Step 5: Press the button on the Firing Range platform and wait for the ship

Along with this, fellow data miner @Biast12 has also released a video showing what happens after activating the button in the Firing Range.

The video shows Biast boarding a ship after activating the button. Biast arrives at a new location where another button awaits, which activates an elevator. This then takes you into a small arena where a massive hollo of future Legend Ash is shown along with a voice line that states, “The Arena awaits.”

This is clearly a teaser for the upcoming 3v3 mode ‘Arena,’ which will be arriving in Season 9. However, this is also a teaser for the future legend, Ash. Although Ash will likely be arriving at a later Season – more like Season 10 – it does confirm that she will be arriving sooner than later.

In fact, it’s not the first time an announcer for a game mode has eventually become a playable Legend. Back in Season 3, the Shadow Fall game mode saw Revenant as the announcer, who later became a playable Legend in Season 4.

If this stays true to the format, Ash could be the new Legend for Season 10, after being an announcer for the previous season much like the introduction of Revenant.
