Originals story follows:

Respawn Entertainment has announced that a new firearm is coming to Apex Legends today as part of a new update.

The obliterating boomstick was first teased on social media, and has been unveiled to be called Havoc, a rifle which takes energy ammunition.

Specific information regarding its class and attachments remain unknown, although we won’t have to wait very long to find out more.

Unlike many other firearms in Apex Legends, this one doesn’t seem to be based on an existing weapon from the Titanfall universe, marking an original concept for the game.
