Apex Legends Leak Reveals Two New Weapons Coming Soon
Ever since its launch last week, battle royale title Apex Legends has been breaking records all across the board, becoming immensely popular in a very short time. While the future of the game is still being discussed by the devs and fans alike, many are simply wondering when the latest batch of new content will drop. Now, a new leak has revealed that two new weapons are coming soon to the free-to-play title from Respawn Entertainment.
The news comes by way of the folks over at Rez, which revealed that the two new weapons coming soon to Apex Legends are an energy rifle called HAVOC, and a light machine gun (LMG) called L-STAR EMG. According to the leak, the HAVOC rifle will inflict 18 points of damage to the body and 36 for landing a headshot, and the weapon will feature balanced stats between rate of fire, damage, accuracy, and range. The L-STAR EMG, on the other hand, will do more damage, hitting a player’s body for 21 points of damage and the head for 42 points. Oddly enough, the weapon will sport some decent accuracy at long range. Here’s the stat breakdown of the two weapons:
Of the two weapons, the available attachments for the HAVOC have also been leaked. The rifle will reportedly be compatible with the Selectfire Receiver and Turbocharger attachments, which will allow the player to choose their preferred fire select option and reduce the gun’s autofire spin-up time, respectively. The HAVOC will also be compatible with multiple optical sights as well as three different stocks.
It is unknown exactly when the weapons will be implemented into Apex Legends, though given the fairly detailed leak, we can expect them to arrive soon. Apex Legends is now free-to-play for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
