Apex Legends Season 5 is coming on May 12 and it has been loosely confirmed and known for months - thanks to the efforts of data miners - that the Volt SMG from Titanfall 2 will be making its way to Apex in some form or another with the coming update.

While Apex Legends receives a new weapon every season, the Volt SMG did bring up some cause for concern from players due to how it handled close quarters combat in Titanfall 2. An energy based hit-scan weapon with blue tracers, the weapon dominated up close, however if the weapon keeps the tracers from Titanfall, could serve as a double edged sword to give away location to third parties.

While not officially confirmed by Respawn Entertainment or included in any promotional information leading up to the launch of season 5, data miner Suum uncovered four epic skins for the weapon in the game's pre-update files. 

Apex Legends Leak Confirms Titanfall Volt SMG via Skin

While unconfirmed at this time, we can speculate what the SMG may have in store from the skin renderings as well as stats from Titanfall 2. Similar in range to that of the L-STAR and R-99, the Volt can add lots of new, close quarters play strategy and excitement with its addition.

On the renders posted by Suum, it also appears that the Volt may come with some sort of integrated suppressor functionality, also included in the original iteration from Titanfall 2. Only time will tell if the Volt gets announced officially before the release of season 5, but in the meantime seems like a sure bet that players will get their hands on the weapon in the near future. With rumors circulating around new Legend Loba before her official  announcement as well, the Volt SMG may follow a similar path.
