Respawn’s mammoth success Apex Legends is getting a brand-new weapon today, and if you’ve been following the game since it launched then it might look familiar to you.

Shared via Apex‘s social media accounts, the new weapon is called Havoc, and it appears to be an automatic rifle with charged shots. Pretty nifty, but where have you seen it before…?

Well, it’s none other than the mystery gun shown in the cinematic story trailer for Apex Legends, wielded by Pathfinder. Check it out in action in the trailer below.
If you were wondering how to get Pathfinder’s gun, it’ll be available at some point today (February 20th) for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
LEAK/NEWS: I thought I had tweeted this lol. Forgot somehow.@MLozada tweeted this image of pathfinder holding the newly announced gun in the #ApexLegends announce trailer. A unique way of teasing guns I suppose.#ApexLegendsBattleRoyale #apexlegendsleaks #ApexLegendsClips pic.twitter.com/IL245xyda5

It’s great to see Respawn already delivering the new goods for its millions of players, but as the main competitor for Fortnite, it’s important to keep things fresh and exciting for fans.
Respawn has already promised us a tonne of new content, with plans to keep adding to the game for the foreseeable future. The free-to-play battle royale, which launched less than a month ago, released at a risky time for shooters with the likes of Anthem just around the corner.
With 25 million players in its first week alone, I don’t think Apex has anything to worry about with Anthem…
Will you be using Havoc or will you be sticking to your guns (not Mozambique though)?
