Apex Legends is getting a new weapon update shortly, revealed by self-proclaimed leaker Shrugtal, who also goes by “Apex Legends skin prophet”. It can be seen in the gameplay above that a new Cryo Grenade weapon should be coming to Apex Legends shortly.
Shrugtal has stumbled upon the item while following a data mine of the Apex Legends Emergence update. Shrugtal calls this “a bit of a hidden find after the patch has been out for a while,” but anyway; the leak is giving fans a good time.
The self-proclaimed Apex Legends skin prophet pointed as out, that the new weapon, Cryo Grenade, is similar to Thermite Grenade in terms of design and shape with enough differences to set them apart.
Notably, the new weapon has a light blue color to evoke its icy ability.
There are some uncertainties regarding the function of the new weapon. As we know that Thermite Grenade creates a wall of fire, it might lead to thinking that the Cryo Grenade will create a wall of ice but the notion sounds silly as it could be overpowering.
Furthermore, the mention of data mine uncovering a UI element entry for “Cryo_Freeze_Progress” came along, which simply means that players that remain in the vicinity of the grenade’s detonation point freeze and slowly take damage.
As always, you are suggested to take this news with a grain of salt. Putting full confidence in the ability and trustworthiness of the leaker, I would like to point out that plans in the video game industry are always changing and you should not get too excited unless there is an official announcement.
We are expecting the weapon to launch in time for Season 11’s release. For now, Apex Legends fans will just have to enjoy Emergence and wait to see what the future might hold!
