Respawn has released a ton of Flatline skins since the launch of Apex Legends. However, here are our top ten Flatline skins to ever exist in the game.

Respawn Entertainment stunned the video gaming world by releasing Apex Legends, which is basically a battle royale spin-off of their Titanfall franchise. Aside from a fresh new take on the battle royale genre with hero shooter-like abilities, the gunplay and ease of movement also made the game stand out amongst the sea of other battle royale games.

On top of that, the game initially launched with a pretty diverse roster of firearms. From sharpshooting sniper rifles to skill-focused weapons, Apex packed quite a punch in its weapon department.

Among them, Flatline stood out from the crowd as a reliable competitor to the beloved R-301. As most of the weapons were originally from Titanfall, diehard fans of the Titanfall franchise already expected them to show up in one form or another.

As it is an assault rifle, it packs quite a punch. However, it is also really difficult to control at further distances due to the heavy recoil. Despite that, this AK-47 look-alike cemented itself as part of the weapon meta in Apex Legends.

Since Apex Legends is a free-to-play game with in-game microtransactions, players can choose to spend real-world money to customize their play sessions. As such, over the years, Respawn has released quite a few amusing skins for the Flatline.

How Many Flatline Skins are There in Apex Legends?

Right now, in season 19 of Apex Legends, 92 skins for Flatline are available. Among them, a total of 26 Legendary, 16 Epic, 35 Rare, and 16 Common skins have been released so far.

Our 10 Most Favorite Flatline Skin Picks

Apex Legends first launched in early 2019, and since then, Respawn has launched a handful of Flatline skins for its fans. The weapon has dropped in popularity since the launch of Apex Legends, yet it is still one of those guns players want to pick up if they see it lying in front of them on the ground.

As mentioned earlier, Respawn has released a bunch of Flatline skins in the game, and they will continue to do so in the future. However, here are our 10 best R-99 skins that we think are the best in the game:

1. Heat Sink

Release DateFebruary 4, 2020
Available viaSeason 4 Assimilation Premium Battle Pass
AlternativesHeavy Metal

Heat Sink was released back in season 4 as a part of the exclusive battle pass level 100 reactive skin. Since this was exclusive to battle pass completionists, it has slowly become one of the game’s rarest and most sought-after Flatline skins.

The old battle pass skins are becoming more desirable by the Apex community as time goes by. Understandably, this one and its other metallic recolor, called “Heavy Metal,” are considered to be the best Flatline skins in the entire game. Unfortunately, this skin won’t be available to purchase again as this was a battle pass exclusive skin.

2. Revelations

Release DateJuly 19, 2022
Available viaGaiden Thematic Event

Revelations is one of the most gorgeous Flatline skins in the game. The skin was paired with the Revenant skin with the same name. Revelations is inspired by the anime character Evangalion, so many anime fans are in love with the skin. Even if it wasn’t inspired by an anime character, the look of the skin alone could impress anyone.

3. Harlequin

Release DateNovember 26, 2019
Available viaBlack Friday Sale 2019

Harlequin was part of an Octane-specific joker-themed bundle from Respawn. Aside from the battle pass level 100 skins, this one is also a fan-favorite Flatline skin. The overall gold and red aesthetic paired with joker face masks on the side of the skin really gives it a unique look.

4. Slayer’s Lancer

Slayer’s Lancer was part of the champion edition skin featuring Seer. The white gold colorway definitely caught the attention of the Apex community, and it quickly became a fan favorite skin. Respawn definitely didn’t disappoint with this champion edition bundle.

5. Teal Zeal

Respawn introduced the Teal Zeal Flatline skin with the Lost Treasures Collection Event. As the name suggests, it features a Teal colorway with subtle silver highlights at the back. And the steampunk aesthetics of the skin really turned some heads within the Apex player base.

6. Cord Cutter

Release DateSeptember 20, 2022
Available viaBeast of Prey Collection Event [Prize Track Reward]

Although Killer Carapace is a free skin that was rewarded to players in the Beast of Prey Collection Event, it is one of the best Flatline skins in the game. The mixture of greens with the addition of a futuristic-looking body of the skin makes the skin a first pick, even among the pros.

8. Molten Mayhem

Chooser of the Slain was part of the Lifeline Edition skin bundle. It features a really cool-looking white and gold colorway with subtle maroon accent colors. All in all, it is one of the better-looking Flatline skins in the game.

10. Chained Beast

The Chained Beast was part of the season 8 battle pass. As per the bombastic, over-the-top season 8 battle pass theme, Respawn went all in for this one and created this red-colored beast featuring chains.

Will Past Flatline Event Skins Ever Return?

Respawn has announced that battle pass skins from Season 11 and onwards may be available in an event-specific skin package in the future. So, the event and recolor skins may ultimately make their way to the store. However, older skins from Battlepass may never make it into the game ever.

As of writing, there has been no new development regarding any new Flatline skins in the game. We’ll definitely highlight more Flatline skins as soon as they get announced.
