A brand new set of leaked items have been potentially leaked for Apex Legends, as a number of new features, weapons, and even more Titanfall 2 weapons could soon be headed into the game. 

Getting leaks from Reddit is always risky business, as there’s no real way to verify if they are real, since anybody could post a thread and claim they are a leaker.

With that said, many leaks have been posted on the platform in the past that have turned out to be true, so you shouldn’t discredit everything – just make sure you take them with a grain of salt.

Apex Legends’ potential next roster addition, Crypto, has been leaked in the past, but there’s more.

A Reddit thread from user Kyr4l claims to have extracted the game files of Apex Legends, and found a huge stash of voice lines that could be an indicator of what’s to come in the future. 

A number of items, features, and even weapons were included in this apparent datamine, many of which appear to have came right from Titanfall 2. Remember, though, they’re not confirmed in any way at this stage. 

Now, while some inaccurate leaks in the past have included features from the EA game, the arrival of the L-Star LMG in Season 2 certainly opens the door for more arrivals from the Titanfall world in the future. 

So, let’s take a look at everything that was included in the supposed leak: 

Leaked Apex Legends features and items 

  • Extended shotgun mags
  • Experimental ammo/weapons
  • Bandolier
  • Pings for Leviathans
  • Moving Leviathans voice lines
  • Interceptor pings
  • Friendly smokes & traps: Voice lines from Gibraltar say “smoke out” and “friendly trap deployed,” according to the source
  • Portable respawn beacon
  • Detailed voice lines about optics: Legends could soon call out optics they find
  • Flash hiders

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends players could soon be able to ping Leviathans in-game, if this leak turns out to be accurate.

There is also a number of weapons that were detailed in the potential leak, many of which will be very familiar for Titanfall 2 players – with the Softball, Volt, and some others included. 

Potentially leaked weapons for Apex Legends 

  • Volt: A submachine gun from Titanfall 2, which uses energy ammo
  • Softball: Grenadier weapon from Titanfall 2 that uses sticky grenades
  • Rocket launcher and archer
  • EPG: Grenadier weapon from Titanfall 2 
  • Defender/Charge Rifle: Anti-titan weapon from Titanfall 2
  • Cold War: Grenadier weapon from Titanfall 2
  • CAR SMG: Very low recoil submachine gun from Titanfall 2

Titanfall 2, EAThe Cold War is just one of many Titanfall 2 weapons to make it onto this list, but will we ever see it in Kings Canyon?

One thing of note that does stand out from the list is the portable respawn beacon that was leaked July 12. This item did have a sound file for us to listen to, so it might give this list of leaked sound files a bit more credit, since that’s now two people who have discovered it.

Until we get official word from a Respawn developer, nothing is set in stone. Apex doesn’t receive the level of updates like a game like Fortnite does, so if these changes are coming, expect them to come in a major update.

With so much from Titanfall 2 slated to make its way into Kings Canyon in the future, we’ll have to wait and see if it comes off.

What does Branthium mean in Apex Legends? Horizon & Ash Season 7 teasers

Amid all the teasers for Apex Legends Season 7, one word has been on the lips of a number of characters: Branthium. But, what is this? A location, material, or something else entirely? Here, we’ll put together all the clues to get to the bottom of this mystery.

The first time we heard the word Branthium in Apex Legends, it came from Ash, at the end of the Season 5 Broken Ghost quest.

Ash is the villain from Titanfall 2, who was recruited by Kuben Blisk, before she “died” at the hands of Jack Cooper, was put back together again, her memory wiped, and then her head split into parts and spread throughout Kings Canyon.

Once the Legends put her head back together, she spoke to them, and, as part of an unintelligible message, said: “all roads lead to Branthium.”

Ash was the first time we heard ‘Branthium’ in Apex Legends.

What is Branthium in Apex Legends?

After the mention from Ash, in the first Twitter teaser for Season 7, Horizon (expected to be the next playable Legend), repeated the word “Branthium” in among all the static.

It later became clear that Horizon was repeating what Ash said – or, perhaps Ash was repeating Horizon.

Is Branthium a place?

The saying, “all roads lead to Branthium”, is undoubtedly a play on the common phrase “all roads lead to Rome.” Typically, this saying refers to “all paths or activities lead to the center of things” – it comes from Ancient Rome in the literal sense, when all roads started from the capital city.

So, at first, most theories believed Branthium was a place, possibly related to the planet Psamathe and its city, Olympus. Ash finished her monologue by saying “Welcome to Olympus.”

But, a spanner was thrown in the works of this theory by Horizon. In the latest Twitter teaser, Horizon says: “Just got to figure out how he can fuse the Branthium (or Brantium?) without critical mass.”

So, is Branthium actually some kind of element, or fuel, or material? This remains unclear, but it wouldn’t make sense for Ash (and Horizon) to say “All roads lead to Branthium,” if it was simply some kind of element.

This theory could line up though with the involvement of Hammon Robotics. The Planet Harvester which launched in Season 4 is being used by Hammond “to gather precious metals from the core of the planet for reasons unknown.” Is this metal Branthium/Brantium?

Perhaps, Branthium is both a place and an element, with the latter named after the former. Brantium could be a metal discovered on the planet Branthium? For now, we simply don’t know, but we’ll keep this post updated as more teasers emerge about this mysterious word, and what it could mean.

Season 7 is set to start on November 4 – a week earlier than initially planned – so we should learn a lot more then.
