How to get Legendary loot from MRVNs in Apex Legends

One of Apex Legends’ newest features allows players to obtain randomized loot during a game. Here’s how to get Legendary Loot from MRVNs.

MRVN’s are now a feature of the Apex Legends map having been introduced in the recent Fight Night update. MRVN’s can provide you with legendary loot in Olympus and we’ll help you learn how to do this.

Respawn Entertainment made sure to start 2021 with a bang, and they did just that with the Fight Night Collection event that unloaded lots of new content into the game.

One cool addition is the large quantity of MRVN’s that are now situated all-over Olympus’ map. They can give you a massive boost by granting you access to some drool-worthy, Legendary Loot. To get your hands on it though, you’ll have to be cruel to be kind, to yourself.

MRVN’s Legendary Loot in Apex Legends

You’re going to be left with a moral dilemma with regards to how you handle a MRVN because there is a little trick you can do to increase your chances of getting some wonderful Legendary Loot.

When you approach one of Olympus’ many MRVNs, you will be able to tell what kind of loot you’ll be getting from them. As we’re sure you’ve noticed, their screen displays different faces and these denote the rarity of your loot.

These are what the different faces mean:

  • White sad face = Common level 1 loot
  • Neutral blue face = Rare level 2 loot
  • Pleased purple face = Epic level 3 loot
  • Very Happy yellow face = Legendary Level 4 loot

Naturally, a yellow face is the jackpot and will get you Legendary Loot anyway, which is great. But you can be a bit more sinister and let greed cloud your judgment.

Eliminate the MRVN by destroying it and it will drop one of its arms. You can then take the arm to another MRVN robot that you find somewhere else and this will peak the MRVN’s happiness and they instantly giving you Legendary Loot.

This process can actually be repeated, but it’s not so easy finding a MRVN, let alone MRVNs that haven’t already been found in your game.

Either way, with your newfound knowledge, you can loot and shoot MRVNs to your heart’s desire and rest easy knowing they’ve died so you may become an Apex Champion.

New Apex Legends leak claims ‘Dragon’ LMG coming soon

Some new Apex Legends leaks have revealed a new LMG called the ‘Dragon,’ which is unique due to one key detail.

Published

Apex Legends LMG

A unique new Light Machine Gun called the “Dragon” has been revealed in some Apex Legend leaks, and this unique weapon is the first of its kind to make use of Light Ammo.

When you hop into a match of Apex Legends, you’ll immediately have to search for some top tier weapons to boost your chances of victory. The battle royale has only had three unique LMGs since launch, but now a fourth might be on its way.

One Apex Legend data miner uncovered some brand-new weapons in the game files, and a notable addition was the “Dragon.” This is a new LMG that’s different from the others because it uses Light Rounds.

Weapons in Apex Legends

These leaks came from prominent Apex Legends data miner ‘Biast12’, who revealed a handful of new weapons on April 11. The Dragon LMG caught the attention of many fans due to one important detail.

This might be the first weapon of its kind to use Light Rounds in the battle royale. There are currently only six weapons in Apex that rely on this type of ammo, and LMGs mainly utilize Heavy Rounds or Energy Ammo.

If the Dragon is added to the game, then making use of Light Rounds will give it an extremely fast rate of fire. This means that you’ll be able to use it to cause some serious pain in a short amount of time.

Those are the only known details about this weapon at the time of writing. We currently don’t know its power, recoil, or where to find it on the map. Biast12 shared a close look at the in-game model, and it seems lightweight compared to other LMGs.

While this model seems unique, it’s important to keep in mind that these are just leaks, so there’s a chance that we might not see the Dragon in the game. Hopefully, Respawn will announce something official to confirm its arrival.

Perhaps it will be part of the upcoming Season 9 update for Apex Legends. We’ll keep checking for any new developments regarding this, and will inform you of anything new that we learn.

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.

For more tips and tricks in Apex Legends like this, stay posted on Charlie Intel and check out our article on potentially nerfs coming to Octane in the future.

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.
