Apex Legends fans have identified a new weapon in the Season 4: Assimilation trailer that might be coming to the game soon.

The major focus of the new trailer released on January 30 was Revenant, who has now been confirmed as a Legend for Season 4 after murdering previously-announced character Forge.

New Legends aren’t the only thing that a new season typically brings, however, with most also introducing new weapons for players to pick up. A new ‘Sentinel’ sniper has already been confirmed for Season 4, but players are speculating that another new weapon could be on its way after Titanfall 2’s Sidewinder was spotted in the trailer.

Near the start of the trailer, which follows Revenant as he fulfils a contract to kill a thief, the character – who sees himself as a man, rather than a machine – trails his hand across a table, underneath which is a weapon.

As identified by Reddit user Lemondrawp, this weapon appears to be the Sidewinder, a micro rocket launcher found in Titanfall 2.

The Sidewinder was designed as an anti-Titan weapon in the Titanfall universe, so it’s not too surprising that it wasn’t among the original arsenal to be brought over to Apex, but with it having been deliberately placed in the Apex Season 4 trailer it seems that could be about to change.

Animations for the Sidewinder, along with several other weapons, were discovered in the game’s files back in September, although with Apex being built upon the foundation of Titanfall, this was no guarantee that it would ever actually be introduced to the battle royale. Now, however, it seems very possible that it could be set for release in Season 4.

Season 4 of Apex Legends is due to kick off on February 4, making the one-year anniversary of the game’s release. Though fans now know more about what to expect from the new season, many of the teasers and trailers have raised as many questions as they gave answers – such as the true fate of Forge, for instance, who many still believe must have some greater part to play in the game’s unfolding story.

As for whether the Sidewinder is really about to be added to the game, players will likely just have to wait and see.

It’s that time of year again, when Halloween comes to gaming, and Respawn are bringing their spooky theme back to Apex Legends. The Fight or Fright event comes with a collection of scary skins, and a new twist on the last year’s Shadowfall LTM, now called Shadow Royale.

Just like Warzone’s “Haunting of Verdansk” event, the map will be getting another makeover, and players will get a chance to play as new and improved ‘Shadows’ in the Shadow Royale mode.

Last year’s Shadowfall LTM went down a treat: not only did we get to see (and hear) Revenant for the first time, it was a brilliant twist of the standard battle royale gameplay.

Also, to make sure you look the part, lots of Halloween-themed skins are coming to the store. Many of them are similar to last year’s though with fresh colors, but there’s also brand new ones for the new Legends that have been added since last October.

Shadow Royale LTM

In the Shadow Royale mode, players will play as both normal Legends, as well as drop-in as Shadows once eliminated. Shadows are now more deadly than before in some ways, as they can now wallrun and double jump (Titanfall players rejoice).

Plus, rather than just playing in Solos, there’s Shadow Squads, where teammates remain as Shadows as long as one Legend remains alive.

Then there’s Final Death, when the final Legend dies, all shadows die too. We also see Shadow Prowlers, what role they will play remains to be seen, but they’re attacking the remaining Legends in the trailer.

Wallrunning, just like Titanfall, is finally in Apex Legends – but only if you’re a Shadow.

Apex Legends Halloween skins

These skins are being dubbed ‘resurrected’, pretty much meaning they are recolors of previous skins from last year’s Fight or Fright event.

But, expect some new skins too for Legends that have been added since last Halloween – leaks have revealed a Loba skin with moving ghosts on it. You can check out a full look at the skins expected to drop here.

The Fight or Fright event runs from Thursday, October 22, to November 3, just in time for the expected launch of Season 7 on November 10.
