Apex Legends has only been out for just over two weeks and the first new weapon is already here, as Respawn announced that the Havoc rifle went live on February 20.
We’ve known that new weapons would soon be coming to Apex Legends as part of the first season that’s set to launch in March, but Respawn had previously been silent on when the first new weapon will be added to the game.
That silence ended when footage and release date of the weapon was first announced on February 19 during the Apex Legends Twitch Rivals tournament.

Respawn later gave more details on the weapon once it officially went live in Apex Legends on February 20.
The Havoc will sport two firing modes – an automatic mode with 672 rounds per minute and a ‘Hitscan beam’ mode with 102 rounds per minute.
It was also revealed that the Havoc will be compatible with the Selectfire Receiver and Turbocharger Hop-Ups.
The fact that it will use the Turbocharger Hop-Up means it’s likely that the weapon will come stock in the automatic mode, which will require the Hop-Up to decrease the spin-up time.
The Selectfire Receiver would take this one step further, removing the automatic fire completely and allow use of the single fire mode.

Still no word on a buff for the poor Mozambique, though.
