Check out the new leaks that point to weapons, items, and new information about the upcoming battle pass.
Apex Legends dataminers have been hard at work over the past few days, digging through the game files and letting us know what's on the horizon.
These dataminers have posted several news updates on Twitter about new weapons, abilities, and Battle Pass information. Let's get into what may be coming to Apex Legends in the near future.
Flamethrower and Remote Turret
LEAK: A Remote Turret was also found lol. @Respawn is defienetly saving some cool stuff for later. Who's excited?— Apex Legends - News & Leaks (@RealApexLeaks) March 8, 2019

Flamethrowers and remote turrets look like they'll be in Apex Legends in some form or another. Environmental items like a turret could be interesting, but they could easily prove to be more of a hassle than they're worth. After all, many of us know how the Fortnite player base feels about turrets.
If I had to venture a guess, I'd say these files relate to a new hero in one way or another. Respawn could be adding them to the game before they add the final legend to the files - which would make sense.
Those of you who played Titanfall were likely surprised that wall running and super jumping weren't featured in Apex Legends. The two games are set in the same universe, after all, and use many of the same weapons.
Adding these features to Apex Legends would completely change the playstyle and may add a bit more of a skill ceiling. Skilled players will be a lot more efficient in the mobility department with such tools.
Again, though, I think this feature might relate to a passive ability for a new legend. It would be a drastic shift if everyone was able to super jump and wall run, but we'll have to wait and see.
Battle Pass News
LEAK: Some leaks about the Battle Pass. I'll explain the pics in their order.— Apex Legends - News & Leaks (@RealApexLeaks) March 10, 2019
1) Looks like the Buttons
2) Will have a separate menu page/option
3) Battle Pass Bonus
4) Skins confirmed as one of the cosmetics#ApexLegends #ApexPartner #ApexLegendsBattleRoyale #ApexLegendsleaks pic.twitter.com/8hnodvTAVo
The first leaks relating to the Battle Pass had it set to come out tomorrow, but that might be misinformation at this point. There's a lot of hype behind Apex Legends Season 1, and I doubt they'd spring the Battle Pass on us without warning.
The new information we have is more confirmatory than anything. We will get skins as rewards along with some other cosmetics. Interestingly, though, it would seem that there is a "free" and "paid" battle pass.
This will probably look a lot like the Fortnite battle pass, with some items available to those who don't want to pay.
That's all the information we have right now. Stay tuned to @Apex_Tracker for more news and updates as they come.
