Brand new Apex Legends leaks hint that a new submachine gun (SMG) is coming soon and the Battle Royale weapon stock is getting one bigger.

Apex Legends’ weapon pool is at the heart of the combat and looting system, with players scrambling through the many environments to find and equip the very best weapons in the current meta.

However, it’s been some time since a new weapon was added to Apex Legends, with Respawn keen to balance the weapon supply and not release any new weapons.

At the time of writing, the last new weapon to drop was the CAR SMG, which came with Season 11. We are now approaching Season 16 and finally it looks like a new weapon is on its way.

Apex Legends leak reveals new SMG

In a December 2 YouTube video, Apex content creator Grrt shed light on a new SMG that was spotted on an Apex Legends skin and cosmetics site.

“There is a finished model and skin for a future weapon,” he explained. “Essentially a company that makes skins for Apex posted a ton of skins they made. But as we scroll through it, we notice something we’ve never seen before.”

The images, which can be seen in the video below around the 0:22 mark, show a small and compact weapon that looks like an SMG and is noticeably different from any existing weapon in the game.

“This is not a weapon we have,” Grrt continued. “It’s not a Prowler, because it’s too long and the barrel is too big. It’s not Havoc or anything like that. It’s just a straight new weapon.”

He finished off the video by pointing out that it matches previous leaks regarding a “Gemini SMG,” so there’s a possibility it’s a previously leaked weapon that will resurface closer to the in-game release.

Some viewers also noted that the listing and images have now been removed, suggesting they were accidentally released ahead of schedule.

Anyway, the implementation of the new SMG remains unconfirmed until Respawn or EA make it official.

Many will hope to see it with Season 16 in February, especially given the backlash from the criticism aimed at the Wintertide Event.
