Revenant Heirloom revealed in Apex Legends

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are unique collectible skins that are heavily inspired by the character they’re for, and one notable leaker has reportedly uncovered Revenant’s.

There are a ton of collectible items that you can find in Apex Legends, including weapons, shields, and other gear. Heirlooms are the rarest weapon skins in the game, with each one being suited to one particular Legend.

So far, nine of the Legends have their own Heirlooms in the game, and some new leaks have emerged which may have given us our first look at the one for Revenant. Here’s everything we know about it so far.

Revenant in Apex Legends

Notable data miner Shrugtal uncovered a new image of a scythe with Revenant’s color scheme within the Apex Legends game files. This came with a short animated clip showing how it might appear in the game.

The clip showcased how the blade is compartmentalized and attacked by a wire. The scythe then comes together to form the sharp end of the two-handed weapon after Revenant gives it a shake.

However, its worth keeping in mind that this is currently just a leak, and we might have to wait as Respawn experiments with it before it comes to the battle royale.

We don’t know for sure if this is the next Heirloom that will be joining the game since Respawn’s next lineup hasn’t been revealed yet. That said, the reveal was cool, and gave us a good look at its development.

A Heirloom for Crypto was also previously leaked, but that has yet to arrive in Apex Legends. Bangalore’s Cold Steel is the latest one and was added to the game in the Chaos Theory Collection event.

With Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy finally underway, we might have to wait a while before another Heirloom becomes available in the game.

Apex Legends players call for devs to make Firing Range change after Season 14 update

Apex Legends players are calling for the devs to fix the Firing Range after the Season 14 update changed the way players die.

Apex Legends players have noticed a difference in the Firing Range after the Season 14 update, and now they are calling for the devs to make a change.

Apex Legends players are still getting used to the changes in Season 14, as there have been both drastic updates to existing content and new introductions such as Vantage and the Laser Sight attachment.

With that said, players have already found great ways to utilize Vantage and also discovered how strong character buffs are, including Mad Maggie and Newcastle‘s.

However, like any new update, Season 14 has brought some pretty crazy glitches, and players have also found an unwanted change in the Firing Range that they’re now calling for the devs to revert.

Players often use the Firing Range to practice and 1v1 others, but the removal of the Self-Revive has caused these interactions to be much slower and less enjoyable.

Prior to the Self-Revive’s removal, players would 1v1 with a Gold Knockdown Shield so that if they went down, they could easily get back up or switch characters to gain health and retain their loadout.

This prevented the effort of having to respawn and collect your loadout again, allowing players to 1v1 efficiently. Unfortunately, as Skeptation has highlighted, the removal of Self-Revive means this is no longer possible.

Now, Skeptation and others who agree in the comments are calling for the devs to “change this so players get downed not full killed with friendly fire on.”

While it’s not a major issue, it is clearly something the fans want and may have actually been something that the devs didn’t consider when they took the Self-Revive out of the game.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but for now, check out how Apex Legends has reached new heights in Season 14.

Apex Legends players claim Mad Maggie “too good not to use” after major Season 14 buffs

Mad Maggie received a major buff in Apex Legends Season 14, and players claim that the Legend is now a must-pick.

Mad Maggie in Apex Legends

Mad Maggie has never been the most popular character in Apex Legends, but thanks to a major buff in the Season 14 update, players claim she’s “too good not to be used.”

Apex Legends Season 14 is here, bringing a new version of Kings Canyon, major weapon buffs and nerfs, and of course, a new Legend — Vantage. That’s not all though, as existing Legends have been tweaked, and Mad Maggie was on the receiving end of a powerful buff.

Now, with her improved Wrecking Ball ability, her popularity is steadily rising, as she becomes a direct counter to the ever-popular Gibraltar.

Apex Legends Season 14 gave Maggie’s Wrecking Ball a major buff, where it will now deal damage to several placeable objects such as the Black market, Castle Walls, and Gas Barrels. But the biggest takeaway is that “it will also destroy Gibraltar’s Dome of Protection.”

Gibraltar is considered a crutch Legend in competitive thanks to the Dome of Protection keeping players safe in the chaotic endgame. While the Riot Drill could penetrate the shield before, players can now use Maggie’s Wrecking Ball to completely shatter the dome, leaving whole squads exposed.

Reddit user Ship_Doctor showed Maggie’s Wrecking Ball in action, claiming that “Maggie is too good not to be used this season.” In the clip, the user uses the Wrecking Ball to shatter the shield, then the Riot Drill to deal even more damage as they take cover behind a tree.

“Went from quite literally never touching her (I played her twice on Control) to this season so far, she’s all I’ve played,” replied one player. “She’s so much fun.”

“I’ve never met anyone else who hated Gibby more than me. His dome is a complete crutch, glad they did this unintentional nerf to him,” explained another.

However, some players explained that Gibby doesn’t appear in pubs all that often, but Maggie is sure to take plenty of squads by surprise in Ranked. Especially if they never read the patch notes.

Apex Legends buff allows Newcastle to move ridiculously fast while reviving

Newcastle received some buffs in the Apex Legends Season 14 update, as the Legend can now revive players while also speeding around the map.

Following a huge buff in the Apex Legends Season 14 update, players have discovered just how strong Newcastle’s revive is, as he is able to pick teammates up while zooming around the battlefield.

Apex Legends Season 14 is keeping things interesting for players, not only by introducing Vantage but also through buffs and nerfs to Legends in attempts to shift the meta.

While a lot of the talk in the community has been regarding the Mad Maggie buffs and Valkyrie nerfs, some have discovered that Newcastle’s revive is now extremely strong.

For those unaware, Newcastle’s Passive is called “Retrieve the Wounded,” and it allows him to move while reviving his teammates and also protect them with their Knockdown Shield. This was already fairly strong prior to Season 14, but following some major buffs, it’s arguably the best revive in the game.

In the patch notes, it states that Newcastle’s shield revive ability has had its move speed increased by 25% and also reduced its turn slow by 50%. Ultimately, this buff improves the speed at which Newcastle can move while reviving teammates, and this is something that Mokeysniper picked up on.

As you can see in the video, Newcastle can revive his teammates while moving at an incredibly fast speed. This is very strong when you are trying to reset in a fight and need some breathing space while reviving a teammate, giving them time to heal up as well.

According to Mokey, players can do this by simply activating the revive on a slope or ledge and walking down the slope. Newcastle will gain momentum down the hill while also continuing to revive.

The bigger and steeper the slope the better, as this will make you go fast and across a further distance.
