Apex Legends Season 8 was recently announced and every player is eagerly waiting for it to go live. At first, the developers released a new Stories From The Outlands video which introduced us to the new Legend, Fuse. Afterward, the eighth season was officially announced through a trailer which left everyone speechless.
Apex Legends 30-30 Repeater
The new season is going to feature all sorts of stuff. From a new Legend to new cosmetic items, players will see it all. However, the thing which a lot of players are looking forward to is the new weapon. That’s right, the official announcement confirmed that Apex Legends Season 8 is going to bring a new weapon to the game, called the 30-30 Repeater.
In the past few months, there were many rumors and leaks going around claiming that a new rifle will soon get added to Apex Legends. These rumors were cleared when the developers confirmed the existence of the 30-30 Repeater. The thing about this new weapon is that its roots are in Salvo, the place from where Fuse is from. As per the weapon’s official description, the 30-30 Repeater is “Salvo’s most popular weapon.” This is enough to confirm that the weapon is going to be simply amazing.
Everything We Know So Far
At the moment, not much is known about this weapon, but you can expect it to offer high-damage. But considering it is a Repeater, you will need to be really accurate with its shots as missing one can put you at a disadvantage. The weapon is expected to use Heavy Ammo rounds as it was surrounded by them during the dev stream. However, because it’s description talks about “hard-hitting rounds,” some think that it might use Sniper Ammo or a new ammo type. As for its attachments, we can’t say anything about them as this is a totally new type of weapon. But you can expect to see extended magazines and some other common attachments for it.
In any case, it’s great to see that Apex Legends Season 8 is going to take things to another level. This new weapon is surely going to allow players to eliminate their enemies in new and creative ways. However, we will have to wait and see for ourselves whether the weapon is going to match the current expectations or not.
Apex Legends Season 8 will go live on February 2. Make sure to finish your current battle pass before the next season arrives.
