Data miners have been scouring through the Apex Legends game files in search of upcoming items and weapons, and have found what appears to be the finished L-STAR EMG.

UPDATE – March 19, 2019

Following the release of the Season 1 update of Apex Legends, some players noticed that the in-game news screen looked a bit different and featured our first official look at the L-STAR weapon. 

There’s still no word on when it will be released, but with three months left in Season 1, there is plenty of time for it to make its way into the game.

Original story is as follows:

Apex Legends has quickly become one of the most popular games in the world, meaning fans are always searching for the latest news and hints in regards to what is coming next to the game.

While players have been aware of leaks regarding the L-STAR in the past, it appears we have finally gotten a chance to look at the weapon, which is expected to arrive in the game in the near future.

Apex Legends fans believed that the L-STAR has been visible in the title screen of Apex Legends since it launched, however these leaks suggest that hasn’t been the case – although they do look similar.

The L-STAR has a long barrel on the front of the weapon, with a bipod underneath the gun to help steady it while aiming. The L-STAR also appears to have a large scope on the top, giving players some extra precision while aiming.

A first look at the L-STAR.

Thanks to previous leaks, we already know some of the damage statistics of the L-STAR, with the weapon dealing 21 damage to the body, and 42 to the head, making it one of the more powerful weapons in the game.

Data miners have also released two of the skins that will be available for the weapon, including the Legendary red skin, which you can view below.

There is currently no official release date for L-STAR, but many believe that it will make an appearance when Season 1 launches, which is scheduled to begin at some point in March.

As with any leaks, there’s no guarantee that Respawn will actually use them in-game. Make sure to stay tuned to @Dexerto and @TitanfallBlog on Twitter for all the latest Apex Legends news.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.
