Here, we’ll list our 10 most favorite Newcastle skins Respawn has released in Apex Legends.

Since the beginning of Apex Legends, Respawn has introduced a considerable number of characters in the game. With the release of Season 19, there are now 25 Legends with their own flair and personalities. 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.

These characters are divided into 5 classes with defined roles and gameplay styles. Newcastle is one of the most prominent Support legends to be added, with his unique ability to shield your teammate while reviving.  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.

How Many Newcastle Skins are there in Apex Legends?

Right now, in season 19 of Apex Legends, Respawn has released 53 skins for Newcastle. Among them, there are 10 legendary, 10 epic, 17 rare, and 16 common skins for Newcastle.

Our 10 Favorite Newcastle Skin Picks

Here, we’ll aim to highlight some of Respawn’s best-looking Newcastle skins thus far. Newcastle has fewer legendary skins to choose from, but the choices make up for the lack of numbers. Since recolored skins are not unique in style, we added our two most favorite Epic skins to compensate.

10. 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.

9. Valiant Defender

AlternativesComplex Rebirth

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.

8. 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.
