Respawn Entertainment is hard at work making new content to Apex Legends as the game’s popularity continues to snowball. The latest addition brings a new weapon called the Havoc Rifle, and as you might imagine, it’s a pretty serious piece of kit.
The Havoc Rifle is a full-auto energy rifle, which joins the Hemlok as one of the arena’s highest damage-per-shot weapons. But it’s the arena’s only hitscan weapon in charge beam mode, and the only one that can be equipped with two different hop-ups.
Here are the official stats from Respawn’s blog post:
- Name: Havoc Rifle
- Type: Energy Weapon
- Mode: Full-Auto/Hitscan beam
- Turbocharger: Eliminates autofire spin-up time.
Selectfire Receiver: Enables charge beam alt-fire mode.
Pretty nifty, right? You can check out the gun in action in the trailer below:
