Apex Legends players are calling for Respawn to add a simple quality of life skin feature that’s borrowed from Overwatch. This would make navigating the cosmetics menus a lot easier and allow players to find what they’re looking for faster.

With Apex Legends releasing all the way back in February of 2019, it’s fair to say Respawn has built up a large catalog of cosmetics for players to collect. From Legend skins to gun charms to voice lines, there’s no shortage of customization in Apex Legends.

However, despite Respawn implementing superb new cosmetics every single season, the menus players have to use to browse them can be extremely frustrating to navigate.


Luckily, players have come up with a solution for Respawn and it’s borrowed from Blizzard’s hero-shooter, Overwatch.

Apex Legends Season 8 began on February 2.

Apex players call for Overwatch skin feature to be added

A thread posted to the Apex Legends subreddit suggesting the addition of a new skin feature borrowed from Overwatch has garnered over 6,000 upvotes.

Although an incredibly simple concept, it has the potential to dramatically improve Apex’s cosmetic menus. Currently, all of a player’s owned skins and cosmetics on Apex are scattered across a long list that is difficult to navigate. As the game has been out since 2019, these lists of cosmetics are only getting bigger and bigger.

As the thread suggests, players are calling for Respawn to borrow a feature from Overwatch in which player’s owned skins are all listed at the top of the menu. Not only would this feature save time, but it would also make it a lot easier for players to keep track of which skins they actually own.


Apex should have something like overwatch where all of your owned skins voice lines and more at the top and not scattered all around where you have to look for it from r/apexlegends

There’s no denying that big content updates should always be the priority for Respawn, but sometimes the community just wants to see some simple quality of life features that improve the overall experience.

This is certainly a concept the developers should consider adding in the near future, especially with the influx of new skins added with Season 8.
