Apex Legends Aftermarket Event Leaks Reveal Start Date, Cosmetics
An Apex Legends Collection Event called Aftermarket appears set to begin Oct. 6, according to data mining. That's pushed back from the originally scheduled Sept. 15 launch date.
Data miner Shrugtal said the new date was a firmer start time for the event, and unlikely to change. Shrugtal also found evidence of a Caustic Heirloom set that equips Apex Legends' deadliest scientist with a heavy hammer. Although images of the hammer itself have yet to be found, data miners have uncovered Caustic animations that would fit with a two-handed hammer in addition to code referring to the hammer.
Leaks suggest the Aftermarket event will see the re-release of several early Apex Legends skins, including Season 0 and Season 1 recolors. Data miners have found the names for many of these skins, though images have proven more elusive. The names are as follows:
- Risen Queen
- Forged Knight
- Hallowed Spirit
- Jaded Myth
- Curse of the Awaken
Data miners have also found images of a new Loba skin titled Boosted.
In a YouTube video, Shrugtal detailed several recolors set for re-release:
- Pale Moonlight: Requires R301's Daybreaker skin
- Clean Breach: Requires Peacekeeper's Demolisher skin
- Bittersweet: Requires Mozambique's Impulse Fire skin
- Headhunter: Requires Spitfire's Lead Farmer skin
- Ground Control: Requires Spitfire's Flying Warhawk skin
Shrugtal believes a trailer officially revealing the event will be released Thursday.
