Apex Legends Design Director Evan Nikolich recently spoke to GameSpot’s Jordan Ramee about upcoming changes to the game’s cosmetics. Decorating your weapon is one thing – most games have some form of weapon customization these days – but decorating your shield is another and these stickers won’t stick to anything. whatever. Keep reading for the inside scoop on Apex Legends’ latest cosmetic item.
Stickers can be added to the following items:
- Shield Cells
- Battery shield
- Medical kit
- Phoenix Kit
Currently, only healing items can be decorated with stickers, though that could change in the future. Nikolich told us the patches are only for healing items “so far”, but declined to elaborate further. However, he confirmed a few things:
- The stickers will be available for purchase
- They might be included in the battle of Eclipse, but Nikolich can’t say for sure
- The recent change to animations for healing items was actually done in preparation for the arrival of the stickers.
As for who is making them, the stickers are designed only in house at the moment. Many of them have the work of Respawn’s lead animator, Moy Parra. In her spare time, Parra makes cartoon shorts for ToonCraft’s YouTube Channel, creating content depicting interactive legends outside of combat. The results are often hilarious and always entertaining. In fact, some of Parra’s ToonCraft creations are making it into the game as stickers, including an adorable sticker featuring Wattson in a Nessie costume (as seen in one of Parra .’s YouTube videos). Parra’s chibi-like art style fits perfectly with the sticker’s aesthetic.
Nikolich told us that for now, all stickers will be designed in-house, but he doesn’t rule out the possibility that fan artists will be involved in the future, similar to how Respawn has approached with past community artists, operating fan-made transition screenscosmetic skin design, and even Avatar VTuber.
Players won’t see the full sticker collection until Apex Legends Part 15: Eclipse go live on Tuesday, November 1. In the meantime, make sure you catch up Golden ticket and complete Overcoming the hunted battle before it expires.
