Here, we’ll talk about all the best Newcastle skins that Respawn has released in Apex Legends so far in 2023.
Since the beginning of Apex Legends, Respawn has introduced a considerable number of characters in the game. Until season 15, Apex Legends saw the release of 23 legends, each with its own abilities and 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 classes: offensive, defensive, recon, and support. All other classes, with the exception of the support categories, have a range of legends. There are currently 6 Defensive Legends, with Newcastle being one of them, 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 spotlight.
Newcastle is one of the newest additions 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 was only recently released in the game, Respawn hasn’t had 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?
Right now, in season 15 of Apex Legends, Respawn has released 46 skins for Newcastle. And among them, there are 6 legendary, 8 epic, 16 rare, and 16 common skins for Newcastle.
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 best.
10. Heat Sync
Among all the default Epic skins, the Heat Sync default Epic skin stands out 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 Materials, you might want to go for the Heat Sync skin.
9. Stone Skies
While the Stone Skies skin has one of Newcastle’s most colorful aesthetics, the color scheme isn’t to everyone’s taste. This skin was also exclusive to Prime Gaming members, making it difficult to get.
8. Jade Fortress
Jade Fortress looks very much like the Firewall Newcastle skin from the Battle Pass. However, the color and skin pattern are a bit different. Some might prefer it over the Firewall skin because of its vibrant color. Nonetheless, the color makes you too visible in the game, making it a least favorite choice for many players.
7. Heroic Command
Newcastle is the hero of Harris Valley, but behind the mask, he is also one of Bangalore’s brothers and a top soldier for IMC. This was the inspiration behind the name of the Heroic Command, as Newcastle likes to take 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.
6. 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.
5. 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.
4. 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.
2. Complex Rebirth
Complex Rebirth is the default Legendary skin for Newcastle and follows a similar design to the Valiant Defender skin model. However, the contrasting and vibrant color blend is the main focus 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.
1. Mane Event
So far, Mane Event is the best Newcastle skin that Respawn has released in the game. It is also the latest Newcastle Legendary skin in the game, added with the Wintertide Collection Event in Season 15.
As Newcastle is one of the newest additions to the character list, Respawn hasn’t released many event or thematic skins for him as of Season 15. On the other hand, the Firewall skin was released in the Season 13 battle pass and might come to the store as a bundle or an 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.
