The popular battle royale game which was released two weeks ago already has over 25 million players. It’s free, and it looks amazing, although players might be bummed by microtransactions which could affect them in the future. However, Apex Legends is rewarding enough without making players buy stuff.
The good news is that Apex Legends will soon get new weapons, and they might be inspired by Titanfall 1 and Titanfall 2. You can check out the photos below.
Now, we’ve seen the roadmap for the first year of content – the first season appears in March, with the first battle pass and new weapons, Legends, loot, and cosmetics.
Respawn will add Season 2 in June, Season 3 in September, and lastly, Season 4 in December. Each season will bring a lot of new items, Legends, cosmetics, and loot, following the pattern we see in Forntite.
Apex Legends New Weapons: the C.A.R. SMG and the Proto Hold Beam
Let’s take a peek at the two new weapons leaked from the game files and see why they are so special.
Gaming INTEL spotted the C.A.R. SMG and the Proto Hold Beam, noting that the C.A.R SMG appeared in two Titanfall games, and it could work the same in Apex Legends: “it would be likely that this new leaked weapon would fall somewhere between the R-99 SMG and the R-301 Carbine, which are each two of the strongest weapons in the game.”
Meanwhile, the Proto Hold Beam is new, and the report argues that the description of the weapon in the game files is a bit confusing:
“The weapon’s description claims that the weapon drains energy from robotic targets so that you can redirect it toward enemies,” but says that “only the loot ticks and the Legend Pathfinder are currently the only targets that could be considered to be robotic in the game.”
However, if Titans will be added to the game, this leaked Proto Hold Beam will be a good weapon to counter a titan, so it should function like the Charge Rifle in Titanfall 1 and Titanfall 2.
