Dataminers have once again snuck through the files of Respawn’s popular free to play battle royale Apex Legends and come out with things Respawn almost certainly didn’t want us to see.
Just lately, dataminers uncovered evidence of a new night mode, a couple of new weapons, and the inclusion of NPCs, but this new leak could be the greatest one we’ve noticed up to now from the game.

A dataminer by the name of Shrugtal on Twitter recently shared a smorgasbord of new findings, the most notable of which looks like actual assets for several legends (playable characters).
One of these assets is a 3D icon for a character who looks an awful lot like Octane, a legend that’s been hinted at a few times today. One additional leaker really seems pretty certain that Octane will be added to the game in a matter of days.
Shrugtal shared what appeared to be some kind of character select screen on Twitter, and a user known as FrozenFroh then decided to compile all of these versions and speculate over who could be who founded on previously datamined titles.
Check ’em out below:
Wattson has emerged in data for Apex Legends before, and is widely thought to be the wielder of the Tesla Trap weapon that was also uncovered in this most recent datamine. It certainly makes sense based on the name.
There’s nothing super concrete to connect the titles to another leaked characters, besides assumptions based on logic. It seems a safe bet, for example, that Rampart is the beefy dude with the enormous old shield, but Respawn could surprise us all.
It’s also been pointed out by people much smarter than me that Husaria could reference Hussars, a group of Polish cavalry that wore wings on their backs. The metallic attachment behind the character thought to be Husaria does certainly look like some kind of metal wing.
While it was no secret that Apex Legends would be receiving new playable characters it’s very cool to get an early glimpse at these newcomers and begin debating over what they can bring to the game and which new weapons will get nerfed the toughest.
