Apex Legends Update & Looking Forward

Gilberto Espana, Staff Writer

Apex Legends has become one of the most popular battle royale games. Apex Legends released on February 4, 2019 and is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. One week after its release, Apex Legends had over 25 million downloads and two million current players. The game is considered to be a strong challenger to Fortnite’s current dominance in the video game industry.

New Weapons & Community Outreach

Apex Legends has added its first new gun, the Havoc energy rifle. The Havoc is a fully automatic energy rifle, it can also be switched to a semi-automatic firing mode. In order to use the Select Fire Receiver, you must have a hop-up mod. The Havoc is different from every other assault rifle as this gun uses energy ammo. One of the most popular mods used with the Havoc energy rifle is the Turbocharger. The Turbocharger allows the gun to fire at the highest speed. To improve the aiming of the Havor energy rifle, it is recommended to attach scopes.

Apex Legends has become one of the most watched games on Twitch. Twitch is a live streaming video platform owned by Twitch Interactive and owned by Amazon. Twitch has partnered with EA to give free loot and rewards to Apex players. Apex Legends players who have a Twitch prime membership receive a legendary skin and five bonus packs. The legendary skin is the same as the other skins, but with a purple and carbon look. This skin will be found under the legends page. If you have Amazon prime, you are also allowed to receive a free Twitch Prime subscription.

The game is rumored to add double jumping, wall-running, and the giant suits from Titanfall will be available. A report from @RealApexLeaks has revealed two new modes called Jumpkit and Wall Run. The report also included a new survival mode that will be available soon and a new light machine gun. The L-Star light machine gun will apparently be made available on March 2, 2019.
