Apex Legends dataminer debunks the leaks of a new character called Pariah

Recently, a lot of leaks surrounding a new character in Apex Legends surfaced online. The new Legend was called Pariah, and fans of the popular Respawn Entertainment title were quite excited about this character. Other than that, many of them presumed that it will arrive as the Season 10 Legend. But all their hopes and dreams were dashed when a dataminer debunked these rumors.

GarretLeaks, an esteemed Apex Legends community member recently tweeted about these fake leaks. He mentioned that Pariah didn’t exist and such a Legend won’t arrive in Season 10. Additionally, he also called out the people popularizing these fake rumors in their videos and streams. Plus, he also had some evidence to disprove the claims of these people.

Pariah rumors included fake images of the character

The leaks and rumors for Pariah included some ‘images’ of the Legend. One particular screenshot showcased the design of its face, which looked like a skeleton under a hood. The design of this character had some similarities to the villain Taskmaster from Marvel comics. But they turned out to be fake as well with the images sourced from a German designer on ArtStation. Along with that, the audio of Pariah was also copied from a YouTube video of an evil Robot voice.
