Apex Legends voice lines leaked for 8 unreleased weapons

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.

Cycu1 - YouTubeMany of the weapons in Apex Legends, such as the Wingman, have featured in the Titanfall series.

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.

Apex Legends cosplayer takes Horizon outfit to new heights

An Apex Legends cosplayer has stunned fans of Respawn’s BR by bringing Horizon to life, ensuring the Season 7 legend has never looked so real. 

The Apex Legends community has an incredible connection with Respawn’s source material, regularly sharing artwork, videos and cosplays inspired by the world and characters.

Horizon cosplays are obviously still fairly new, given that the Scottish legend was only added with Season 7. The Gravitational Manipulator has brought new levels of verticality to the Olympus map, thanks to her Gravity Lift, Spacewalk and Black Hole abilities.

As far as aesthetics go, Horizon is known for her spacesuit theme. Her iconic ginger hair protrudes out the top of her suit. It’s an awesome look, simultaneously cool and terrifying to see coming towards you in-game.

Horizon’s abilities give incredible movement options.

One cosplayer, though, took on the challenge and, with some incredible skill, came out looking exactly like the legend herself.

Sosenka (@itlookslikekilled on Instagram) shared her Horizon look on December 4, stunning her followers and the Apex community alike. She has previously shared a Loba cosplay, but many agreed that her Horizon look was even more impressive.

The white suit is complete to perfection, with the goggles and arm bands even down to a tee. At the time of writing, it sits at just shy of 9,000 likes.

The look was so good that it even drew the attention of Elle Newlands – the voice actress behind the Season 7 legend.

She said: “I stan, you stan, we all stan for the #Horizon Cosplay Queen!” 

Horizon, despite being fairly new to the game, has taken well to the Olympus map, currently sitting in our A-Tier in our legend rankings. Her pick rates are fairly high, and abilities incredibly useful. Cosplays as good as this only make us want to use her more.
