A new Apex Legends leak has revealed a potential LMG known as the "Dragon" could be the first of its kind to use Light ammunition.
Biast12, a prolific a credible Twitter Apex Legends informant, published a tweet on their Twitter profile this past Sunday, April 11, naming three upcoming weapons that could go live within the next patch. According to Biast12, these are an EPG, a Compound Bow, and the Dragon—a light machine gun (LMG) that stands apart from the rest of its class.
New Apex Legends Leaks Reveals 'Dragon' LMG
In their next tweet regarding the weapon, published in the late afternoon of April 11, Biast12 revealed an image of the weapon alongside some vital information. The Dragon would be the first LMG in Apex Legends to utilize Light Ammunition.
Until this point, LMGs have only used Heavy ammo. In fact, most weapons in Respawn's Apex repertoire use this—16 of the 22 available at the time of writing. This means that the Dragon will only be the seventh to use Light ammo.
Unfortunately, this is the end of the details and insight regarding the weapon. DBLTAP cannot confirm that the Dragon will make it into the live game at all. However, players wouldn't be too far off assuming it's ability to make the cut. After all, the weapon is both named and unlike any other of its category.
