The Apex Legends community is chock-full of talented artists, as we’ve seen in the past. Tons of awesome skin concepts for both the Legends and various weapons pop up every day. This talent is on full display recently with one particular skin concept. Posted to the Apex Legends subreddit yesterday, this Peacekeeper skin currently has over 18,000 upvotes. It’s named “Beekeeper,” and we can totally see this skin making its way into the game. One Respawn developer even commented on the design, which makes this even more intriguing.
Beekeeper concept goes viral
There are a ton of skin designs posted to the Apex Legends subreddit every day. However, only a select few go viral like the recent Beekeeper concept, and a handful have seen a Respawn developer comment on it. Posted by Reddit user Karthok, Beekeeper is one of the most well-designed skins we’ve seen on the subreddit.
What looks to be a hand-drawn concept, everything about this design is fantastic. From the wings on top acting as ironsights to the stinger on the bottom of the stock, this skin is perfectly executed. Clearly, an angry bee is being depicted on the Peacekeeper, complete with honeycombs and multiple designs for the bee’s eye.
This would certainly be a Legendary skin if introduced to Apex Legends. While a fan design hasn’t made it into the game as of yet, there’s a first time for everything. Even Respawn artist “AlmondSnickerz” thinks Beekeeper is a terrific design, saying, “This is great.”
When an artist for the game you’re designing a skin for says it’s great, then you know you’re on to something. Though it’s a long shot that Beekeeper, or any variation, makes it into Apex Legends, there’s always a chance. It’s clear the community would support this induction.
