Leaker reveals new SMG weapon coming to Apex Legends

Respawn Entertainment could soon be adding a brand new submachine gun to Apex Legends, if leaked information is to be believed. 

The popular battle royale game has experienced a number of major changes during its time already, such as a total map change to kick off Season 3, replacing Kings Canyon with World’s Edge. But, even since that update, the craving of new content from the game’s online community has never gone away.

In the past, we’ve seen new characters added to the game, limited-time modes, and additions to the weapon list as well – which could be about to get one bigger than it already is.

Dataminer That1MiningGuy, who recently revealed he was hit with a Cease and Desist letter from Activision to prevent further accurate Modern Warfare leaks, has once again found something really interesting in the Apex Legends game files.

The leaker posted his latest findings to Twitter on November 14 and it appears that a brand new SMG is being tested behind the scenes.

“Not sure if this is for the CAR or the Volt (hoping Volt personally, but know some of you love the CAR), but it does look like some kick patterns for a new SMG are being tested,” he tweeted, alongside screenshots of the files.

For those who aren’t aware, the CAR and Volt weapons he refers to in the tweet are both from Titanfall 2, a game that Respawn developed in the past. Since then, we have seen a number of crossovers between their new and old project, such as the introduction of the L-STAR assault rifle in Season 2.

It’s unclear as to whether or not the contents of this leak will result in a new weapon being added any time soon. However, with no confirmation from Respawn or announcements for fresh guns to be introduced, it’s likely that we will have to wait until at least Season 4’s launch to see more content of this kind added to the free-to-play game.

Should more information be revealed, or leaked, in regards to any new Apex Legends weapons, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Apex Legends Season 8 event, Chaos Theory, is expected to release in March, and will launch alongside the release of Apex on Nintendo Switch. Here’s everything we know about the event so far, including release date, leaks, rumors and even an heirloom to be expected.

When is Chaos Theory event in Apex Legends?

The event is expected to start on March 11, just a couple days after the Switch release for Apex Legends, on March 9. This will follow the conclusion of the Anniversary Collection event on March 3, after it was extended by a week.

Events typically last between two and three weeks, so expect a similar time frame for Chaos Theory.

Despite no official announcement yet, we know it will be called Chaos Theory after Target revealed it early on their Nintendo Switch Champion Edition listing.

Caustic Town Takeover

Respawn have been teasing the next Town Takeover, expected to be for Caustic, in-game. The first teaser dropped on February 23.

The Town Takeover will be at Water Treatment on Kings Canyon, but we will have to wait until Respawn do a full reveal to see what it looks like.

Bangalore Heirloom

Bangalore is the only original launch Legend who hasn’t received an heirloom yet, and all signs point to her being next up.

Numerous leaks from data miners have found what Bangalore’s heirloom will be, so you can check it out here if you don’t mind the spoiler.

The Anniversary Collection event provides the opportunity to get 150 heirloom shards, so if you’re a Bangalore main, you might want to hold on to those shards for a bit.

Chaos Theory event skins

We don’t yet have any images of the skins coming in the event, but data miners have narrowed down which Legends we can expect some new cosmetics for specifically.

Thanks to reliable leaker Biast12, the expected event skins are for the following characters:


  • Caustic
  • Crypto
  • Gibraltar
  • Loba
  • Rampart
  • Revenant
  • Wattson


  • Octane
  • Caustic
  • Wattson

There are also files for numerous recolors for past event skins, but we’re not sure yet if these will be available during the Chaos Theory event, or separately.

That’s everything we know so far about the Chaos Theory event, though there are still a lot of details unknown. We’ll keep you updated on everything right here, and on Twitter @TitanfallBlog.
