Leaks for popular battle royale title Apex Legends have revealed that two new weapons are coming to the game in the form of a Flamethrower and a Remote Turret.

Apex Legends has quickly become one of the world’s most popular games, with over 50 million people playing the game since it’s release on February 4.


With such a huge fanbase, it’s no surprise that players and data miners alike are searching for hints and clues as to what is coming to the game in the future, and it appears Twitter user @AustinScriver may have found two new weapons that players will be able to get their hands on.

Data miners have found two new weapons in Apex Legends.

The first weapon found in the game’s files is a Flamethrower. It’s currently unclear if Apex Legends players will be able to acquire the flame-shooting gun from floor loot or Supply Crates, or if it will be used as an ability for an upcoming Legend.


Also found in the files is mention of a Remote Turret. This item will likely be able to be placed down by players as extra firepower while in a gunfight, or to protect themselves from enemies who are trying to attack them.

Much like the Flamethrower, it’s unknown if this will be available to all players or just as an ability on a Legend.

There is currently no official word on a release date for these weapons, but it’s possible that we could see them during Apex Legends Season 1, which is rumored to kick off later in March.


This isn’t the first time we’ve seen leaks from Apex Legends, as data miners have already given fans a glimpse of two new Legends named Octane and Wattson, alongside another new weapon that’s set to arrive in the near future called the L-STAR.

Of course, there’s no guarentee that these weapons will ever make an appearance in Apex Legends, but it’s likely we will see them at some point in the future.

Spotting the real Mirage after he’s popped his decoys can be a real pain in Apex Legends, but some players have got six tricks that will make life much easier.

As each legend has their own unique abilities and quirks, mastering them as your main character does require plenty of time and effort. Being able to master fighting against them, and throwing out perfect counters, can be even tricker. 


There are plenty of tricks that go into countering abilities like Wraith’s portal or Bangalore’s smoke, but when it comes to Mirage, he might the trickiest of all the characters to counter. 

The bamboozling legend can quite easily escape a dangerous situation thanks to his decoys, leaving you and your teammates pretty confused. However, there are six simple ways that you can spot the real Mirage amid the fakes.

Mirage’s heirloom is part of his tells.

They come from Reddit user Forexz’s informative video, showing off the six small signs to look out for when Mirage summons his decoys and tries to get away. 

There are simple things like watching which Mirage flickers longest, listening for footsteps, and seeing which one has a second gun on their back as they try to run around amid the confusion. 

On top of that, you can also see the real Mirage if they have his heirloom equipped. Like the holstered gun giveaway, the trophy will appear on Mirage’s back, thus revealing the real legend amid the impostors. 

  1. Track Mirage’s emitter light when he activates the ability. 
  2. Watch the light flicker as he runs. The real Mirage will flicker longest.
  3. Listen for footsteps. The real mirage is the only one to make noise.
  4. Look for a holstered weapon on his back. The real Mirage is the only one with one.
  5. Look for the Heirloom on his back. The real Mirage is the only one to have the trophy there.
  6. Use aim assist on console. You’ll feel a slight slowing in the aim assist when looking at the real one.

Console players also have a slight advantage as using aim assist will also reveal the real Mirage. When you aim at the legend, the aim assist will slow ever so slightly when you’re aiming at the real one. 

While these might seem like tips that are hard to follow during a fight, if you put time and effort into memorizing them, it becomes rather easy to spot the tells. 

Respawn might tweak a few things in the future to make Mirage an ever better trickster, but for now, you may as well use these tells to your advantage.
