Season 1 of the which prompted a response from Respawn Entertainment themselves.
However, one legendary skin in particular – which will be a grind to capture – looks like it may be worth the effort to secure.
Reddit users picked up on an earlier comment made by one of the Respawn Entertainment devs, Leeeeeee-RSPN, in the post about of the philosophy behind Apex Legends Season 1 that gave a little insight into one of the newest skins in the game.
The dev commented: “The level 100 Havoc skin is the first ever 3-stage evolving Legendary weapon skin. As you get more kills (within the match), its eyes glow and its nostrils emit smoke, etc.”
Eagle-eyed fans spotted the weapon in the trailer for season one without realizing what they had seen – with some believing it was the previously leaked L-Star rifle. However, after it was cleared up that the gun they saw was the Havoc, Leeeeeee-RSPN returned with a further comment.
The dev added: “Showin’ that sweet VFX green nostril flare!,” in reference to the gun’s new reactive effects being showcased before its release.
Following the release of the Season 1 update on March 19, data miners managed to uncover some new video on what the skin looks like in action, as well.
