Prominent Apex Legends dataminer ‘KralRindo’ has found and leaked voice lines of various characters mentioning weapons that have not yet been released in the game, including Titanfall’s CAR SMG and EPG.

For games like Apex, one that continuously gets updated instead of being supplanted by a sequel, new content is imperative to keep the whole experience fresh.

One major addition that developers Respawn Entertainment make at the start of every season is a brand new weapon, and so far we’ve had four: Havoc, L-STAR, Charge Rifle, and Sentinel.

There’s no doubt that Respawn have a number of weapons in development for upcoming seasons, and we now have an idea of what some of them might be thanks to a new leak.

Reddit user KralRindo, who’s established himself as a reliable dataminer for the battle royale, posted a couple of videos of several Legends saying lines that included the names of guns not in the game. The first shows the likes of Bangalore, Caustic, Pathfinder and others naming the CAR SMG, EPG, and Volt SMG.

The second video is very similar to the first, but including voice lines for the Grenade Launcher, Rocket Launcher, Cold War, Softball, and Archer.

Fans of Respawn’s Titanfall series will notice all of these weapons featured in Titanfall 2, which is where the Redditor got the images from to include in the videos.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise; a lot of the guns in Apex Legends are based on similar ones from Titanfall games, and some even have identical names to their older counterparts.

For those who are not familiar with some of the names, the EPG-1 was a single-fire direct energy propelled launcher, EM-4 Cold War a four-round burst weapon, the R-6P Softball an Anti-Armor Grenade Launcher, and Archer a lock-on rocket launcher.

What do the leaks mean?

Before anyone gets ahead of themselves, it’s extremely unlikely all these weapons will end up in Apex. In all likelihood, these guns are ones Respawn may consider adding and thus recorded lines with the voice actors just in case.

That would explain why newer Legends, like Revenant and Crypto, are not featured in the videos since these recordings were probably made before those characters were even added.

However, that’s not to say none of these guns will get chosen. In fact, based on the leaks, there’s strong reason to believe that either the CAR or Volt SMGs will be added in Season 5, especially considering the submachine category is one Respawn haven’t expanded since the game first launched.

Respawn EntertainmentTitanfall 2’s CAR SMG has been heavily rumored to be coming to Apex Legends soon.

A lot of people thought one of the two would be added in Season 4, but the devs went with a curveball in the form of the Sentinel sniper rifle, so we could finally see a new SMG next.

All that said, however, Respawn have proven themselves to be quite tricky when it comes to predictions. They recently admitted they went as far as to put false info in the game’s back-end files to bait miners into spreading fake intel, so caution must be exercised when trying to read too much into these leaks.

With Horizon officially confirmed as the next character coming to Apex Legends, players can use the new Gravity Lifts to boost themselves into the air and rotate around the map. Here’s everything you need to know about the machines, including every location and how to activate them.

Respawn Entertainment added a monitor to the Firing Range on October 13, which started to play videos featuring Dr. Mary Somers, who will become the Apex Games’ ninth Legend under her alter-ego Horizon, likely when Season 7 launches.

Before she starts competing though, Horizon has some special experiments she needs you to complete. By finishing these challenges, you can use the new Gravity Lifts that have been installed in both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge, which shoot you up into the sky and give you a new rotation option when in the heat of the battle.

You will need Horizon’s activation keycard to access these machines though, so make sure you complete the challenges provided by Apex Legends‘ newest character before you head to their locations.

How to activate Horizon’s Gravity Lifts

Before you actually use the Gravity Lifts, you’ll need to grab the keycard to make them work.

First, you’ll need to head to the Firing Range and interact with the monitor, which will then play a special message from Horizon. Leave Firing Range, and you’ll receive a notification that three new challenges have been unlocked, which you need to complete as the next step in the process.

Thankfully, these challenges aren’t too difficult so you should be able to tick them off in a couple of games, as you just need to deal with damage in mid-air, get knockdowns, and outlive opponents. The three challenges are:

  • Deal 10 damage while mid-air
  • Get 10 knockdowns
  • Outlive 120 opponents

Once you’ve finished these, head back to Firing Range, and you should now be able to open the Supply Bin that sits beside the monitor. Inside, you’ll find the keycard you need to boot up the Gravity Lifts.

Apex Legends Gravity Lift locations

Now that you have your keycard, it’s time to use it to activate the Gravity Lifts. There are two of these machines on each map, so no matter if you’re playing on World’s Edge or Kings Canyon, you’ll be able to make use of the devices.

Both of the Gravity Lifts can be found in the north of World’s Edge, with one sitting in Skyhook, and the other found inside Refinery. When you reach them, you simply interact with the machine and a blue beam of light will shoot out of the pad on the floor, that will rocket you into the sky.

The Gravity Lifts are on opposite sides of Kings Canyon, with one located at Airbase on the west, with another sitting in the east, just outside Repulsor.

The Gravity Lifts are an extremely handy rotation tool, allowing you to exit an area if the circle is closing, or giving you an escape route if you’re under attack.

They won’t remain active for long after use, so other teams likely won’t be able to follow in your beam. The machines also have a cooldown which should give you time to get away.
