Here we’ll talk about all the best Newcastle skins that Respawn has released in Apex Legends so far in 2022.
Since the beginning of Apex Legends, Respawn has introduced a considerable number of characters in the game. Until season 13, we have seen 21 Legends being released into Apex Legends, all with their own abilities and unique features.
The character system, mobility, precision gunplay, and fast-paced gameplay immediately drew the attention of the people who started playing Apex for the first time. As a result, Apex Legends’ player count continued to rise.
Characters in Apex Legends are categorized into four groups: offensive, defensive, recon, and support. All other classes, with the exception of the support categories, have a range of legends. There are currently 5 Recon Legends, with Newcastle being the latest of them all, released in Season 13 of Apex Legends.
Defensive characters are specialized in supporting their squads through all the chaos. They risk their lives in order to lead their team to victory, even if it means sacrificing themselves. They are the guardian angels who work effortlessly without being in the limelight.
Newcastle is the newest addition to the Defensive legend’s family. This legend is known popularly as the hero of Harris Valley. But behind his mask, he is not the fallen warrior that everyone knows of. Instead, he is Bangalore’s long-lost brother, William Jackson.
As he is only released recently in the game, Respawn hasn’t got the chance to release a ton of Legendary skins for Newcastle. Yet, he still has some cool skins in stock.

How Many Newcastle Skins are there in Apex Legends?

Best Newcastle Skins in Apex Legends (A Complete Tier List)
Here we’ll rank all the Newcastle skins that Respawn has released so far in the game. We’ll put all the skins into three distinct tiers such as S-Tier, A-Tier, and lastly B-Tier.
The S-Tier Newcastle skins are the elite skins that every Newcastle player wishes to own. The A-Tier skins are rare, and they fall closely behind their S-Tier counterparts. Lastly, B-Tier skins are inconspicuous cosmetics, but they feel very ordinary compared to the S and A-Tier Newcastle skins.
We have ranked these Newcastle skins based on their looks, rarity, and popularity. Like any other tier list, this one is also purely subjective, and any of the mentioned skins can be put anywhere on the list. This list is intended mainly to assist novices and veteran players looking for some of the best-looking Newcastle skins.
|Best (S-Tier)||Complex Rebirth, Firewall, Starbound Savior|
|Good (A-Tier)||Valiant Defender, Green Mosaic, Heroic Command|
|Average (B-Tier)||heat Sync, Hack The System, Fiber Optics, Daemon Hunter|
Top 10 Best Newcastle skins in Apex Legends
Here, we’ll aim to highlight some of Respawn’s best-looking Newcastle skins thus far in Season 13. Though Newcastle has limited legendary skins, other epic skins make up for the limitation. This top ten list will serve as a reference for players. In addition, this list will be ranked from worst to the best.
10. Daemon Hunter
Daemon Hunter is a default epic skin for Newcastle. Like all the other default Daemon Hunter skins, this skin also has a triangular geometric red animated pattern.
9. Fiber Optics
Fiber Optic is also a default Epic skin for Newcastle. And, similar to other Fiber Optic skins, it also has a blue animated pattern that looks like electricity is flowing through his body.
8. Hack The System
Hack The System is a green highlighting animated skin for Newcastle. Unlike other epic skins, it has a green circular animation pattern that looks unique compared to its other counterparts. However, Hack The System is also a default Epic skin for Newcastle.
7. Heat Sync
Among all the default epic skins, the Heat Sync default Epic skin looks more distinct because of its glowing orange color and dot animation pattern throughout the costume. So, if you want a cool-looking Epic skin for Newcastle without spending too much Crafting Metals, you might want to look out for the Heat Sync skin.
6. Heroic Command
Newcastle is the hero of Harris Valley, but behind the mask, he is also one of Bangalore’s brothers who was a top soldier for IMC. This was the inspiration behind the name of the Heroic Command, as Newcastle likes to take the charge by staying at the front.
The skin also follows an IMC pilot theme which we have seen in the Gridiron SFTO. Heroic Command came with the Newcastle Launch Bundle in Season 13.
5. Green Mosaic
Green Mosaic is the default Legendary skin for Newcastle that resembles a bulky bomb suit. The lime green accent gives the skin a nice touch of color which is the main focusing point of the whole costume.
4. Valiant Defender
Newcastle is a Valiant Defender who puts his life in danger to save others. He is a knight for his squads and the people of Harris Valley. So, Respawn went with a Knight theme with Valiant Defender skin that has a silver highlighting with a blue accent all over the skin. The silver helmet with the crest makes the skin look more stylish.
3. Starbound Savior
Starbound Savior follows a similar design to the Green Mosaic Legendary skin for Newcastle. But, instead of the lime green color, the skin is built with a gold color combination, which makes the skin more refined. Starbound Savior is also a default Legendary skin that can be found in the Newcastle Skins menu.
The Firewall is an Epic tier skin for Newcastle that was released with the Saviors battle pass in Season 13. The skin consists of a very dominating Red highlighting color with a yellow accent. The references to the fire dragons throughout the skin are the main components that separate this skin from the rest of the crowd.
1. Complex Rebirth
Complex Rebirth is a default Legendary skin for Newcastle that follows a very similar design to the Valiant Defender skin model. However, the contrasting and vibrant color blend is the main focusing point of this skin. The skin doesn’t look too vibrant, nor does it look bland. Complex Rebirth skin is a perfect combination of colors and creative design that makes it the most sought-after skin for Newcastle.
As Newcastle is the newest addition to the character list, Respawn hasn’t released event or thematic skins for Newcastle as of Season 13. On the other hand, the Firewall skin was released in Season 13 battle pass, which might come to the store in the future as a bundle or event-specific skin.
Upcoming Newcastle Skins
As of writing, there has been no new development regarding any new Newcastle skins in the game. We’ll definitely highlight more Newcastle skins as soon as they get announced.
