      So do the apex monsters have their own separate armor and weapons or are they just for materials required to upgrade equipment?

        Will we have new enhancements in our beloved beastly monsters because I think it has nothing to do with the gore magala or the magnamalo because I've heard that there will be a greater threat than this propagating the apex state.
