Apex Legends players have been reminiscing on social media about the game’s previous hop-ups.

It’s not uncommon for live service games to rotate, remove, and add pieces into the meta. This can include characters, weapons, upgrades, and even ammunition as time goes on. With these changes, of course, come people who cannot bear to let their favorite item go into the vault for good.

This is the case with one Reddit user, Status-Apple7509, and the Select Fire Reciever Hop-up.

“I know you never coming back but I Miss You,” the user wrote.

Some commiserated by adding the trademark “F” in the post’s comments. Others were quick to chime in with their own missed strategies like using the Select Fire on other weapons such as the Havoc — one of the more popular responses.

“3x scope on the Havoc with Selectfire was my main, with PK as backup,” wrote Minimob0, “It was like having 3 different weapons on you at all times, and I miss it so much. Not to mention the sound it made while charging up. I probably miss that the most.”

Hooleyoh wrote, “My sweet precious how I miss you. On mobile the select-fire is still available.”

A few went on to argue that Burst was far better, especially on the Prowler.

Regardless, it’s clear that if the Select Fire Hop-up does return to the Havoc’s line-up, there will be a pool of players ready to give it a whirl once again.
