A holdover from Respawn Entertainment’s Titanfall days, Nessie has long been a fan-favorite Easter egg in Apex Legends.
Remarkably, plush versions of the creature were scattered across the Kings Canyon map. Nessie plushies also exist in the real world as stuffed collectibles.
As such, Nessie Easter eggs are always a popular sight for fans. And a recent sighting surprised Apex believers.
Apex Legends take on the role of Nessie Squad in Gun Run
Typically, at the start of each Gun Run match, four groups of three are split into the following squads – Bear, Eagle, Tiger, and Wolf.
However, in the past few days, some teams have been given a brand new name, Nessie Squad. Shadytheruler noticed the Easter egg and shared a screenshot with proof on the Apex subreddit.
Twitter user Fatthew Mantasia‘s Crew also took over the role of Nessie Squad a few days ago. Respawn’s Senior Technical Experience Designer, Justin Masse, came across the tweet and added the “super rare” Easter egg to the game.
