Apex Legends, the battle royale from Titanfall developers, Respawn Entertainment, looks like it may soon receive portable respawn beacons, according to dataminer Shrugtal.

The leak comes way of a couple of .wav files referencing the portable respawn beacon. This is hardly concrete at this point, however, Shrugtal has historically accurately leaked Apex Legends feature previously.

Additionally, the fact there are two .wav files referencing the item indicates that Respawn Entertainment may be experimenting with the feature with an imminent implementation in mind.

Such an item has the obvious potential to impact the on-field tactics in the game, and could make for some interesting scenarios. What are your thoughts of a portable respawn beacon in Apex Legends? Yea? Nay? Sound off.
