Apex Legends leak reveals new weapon ammo type “coming soon”

Apex Legends leaker ‘KralRindo’ has uncovered a new weapon ammo type that is apparently “coming soon” to the Apex Games – hinting at potential new weapons in the future.

Apex Legends fans delved into a plethora of content during the System Override Collection Event, which debuted Octane’s brand-new Heirloom.

On top of the Adrenaline Junkie’s new Butterfly Knife, 24 event-limited cosmetics were also up for grabs, which left fans wanting more.

Thanks to leaker KralRindo, it doesn’t look like fans will have to wait too long before the game’s meta is shaken up once again.

After unveiling a number of voice lines and in-game quips for eight unreleased weapons, the leaker has hinted that new weapon ammo types are “coming soon.”

Explosive ammo is set to join the five existing types of ammunition in the Apex Games, behind the recently added ‘Sniper’ ammo type used for the likes of the Sentinel and Longbow DMR.

Correlating the leaked voice lines for the unreleased weapons, it appears that the Explosive ammo could be used for the EM-4 Cold War Grenade Launcher, the Archer Heavy Rocket and R-6P Softball AAGL respectively.

Each of these are heavy-duty weapons plucked from the Titanfall universe, designed to work as anti-Titan measures.

Bear in mind that Respawn may decide to tweak each of the weapons to suit the needs of the Apex Games (i.e., anti-Titan measures aren’t necessarily required in Apex Legends).

Of course, it’s worth noting that leaks such as this must be taken with a pinch of salt. For context, Respawn recently admitted that they included a trail of false breadcrumbs in the game’s files to “misdirect dataminers” into false pretenses.

Although, a completely overhauled weapon set would certainly shake up the current meta considerably.
