Apex Legends fans are growing bored of the skins from recent battle passes, with season 11 being no different.
Fans of the vibrant battle royale have noted that the past few seasons have contained underwhelming skins compared to the ones released in earlier battle passes. The skin that seemed to cause the controversy was the Biotic Luminary skin for Horizon released in Season 10.
Apex Legends fans have continuously complained about the unappealing skin, saying it’s the ugliest skin in the history of the game. Many have pointed to the strange facial features as the main reason for disliking the skin, especially the eye shadow. While a futuristic science-based skin would be perfect for Horizon, this Legendary skin missed the mark for most fans.
But it hasn’t only been the ugly Horizon skin. When the lack of good skins was initially brought up on Reddit, other fans agreed that the cosmetics have been very underwhelming. The new skins were so boring for some players, who say this kept them from bothering to grind levels.
For a lot of players, battle passes are what keeps the game fresh each season. It gives them a reason to grind games in hopes of earning rewards, unlocking new cosmetics without having to spend extra. So when new cosmetics are not desirable, it can make some players far less motivated to grind.
Apex Legends season 11 has been a bit of an awkward one, but there has been some successes for Respawn. Foremost among them is the popularity of new legend Ash.
What are some of the best Apex Legends skins?
While the skins featured in the Apex Legends season 10 and season 11 battle passes have been unexciting for many players, there are many desirable skins in Apex Legends that are often requested to return to the store. Here are some of the skins that players have asked developers to bring back.
This Legendary skin was first introduced to players in 2019 as part of the Voidwalker Event. The skin returned in the Summer of Plunder Sale bundle in 2020 and then the Summer Splash Sale in 2021. It’s a very popular skin that fans are hoping will return in 2022 as well.
Airship Assassin Wraith
This is another Legendary skin for Wraith, first seen in February, 2019 for 6,500 Legend Tokens. It has returned twice since, including during the Black Friday Sale in 2020 and then in 2021 in the Legend Recolor Store. Both of those times, the Airship Assassin skin was 10,500 Legend Tokens. It may be back in 2022 but don’t expect it to be cheap.
Wraith is back with another popular and elusive skin. The Flashpoint skin first arrived in 2019 and then returned in the spring of 2021. There have been leaks hinting at the skin’s return but nothing has been confirmed by Respawn Entertainment.
