Two new weapons are reportedly heading to Apex Legends, now we know what kind of Legendary skins they will come with.

Dataminers and players who pinged certain attachments found the appearance of two new weapons that have not been added to Apex Legends yet, the L-STAR and the Havoc rifle.

Although the weapons have not been seen at this time, Gaming INTEL have now found what the legendary skins will be called.

The names of the Legendary skins are as follows:

L-STAR

  • The Warrior’s Way
  • Poetic Justice
  • Apex Hyperdrive
  • Alien Invasion

Havoc

  • Quantum Chaos
  • Sonic Empire
  • The Dragon’s Head
  • The Silver Storm

The Havoc rifle remains a mystery but fans of the Titanfall franchise know all about the L-STAR from Titanfall 2. In fact, Apex Legends players may recognize the L-STAR as well, considering it may have been visible in the game since launch.

No, you have not been able to use it, but Bloodhound has been holding a weapon that looks like the L-STAR in the title screen ever since the game was revealed.

Has the L-STAR been visible this whole time?

Above is a picture of the L-STAR as it appears in Titanfall 2, compared to the weapon Bloodhound is holding in the title screen of Apex Legends.

Fans will not have to wait much longer to find out about the two new weapons, as well as the Legendary skins, because Apex is scheduled to get its first content update in March.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
