A new Hop-Up was leaked back in January. Now it seems that the Explosive Lobber could be making an appearance in Apex Legends Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 is looming ever closer, with the new season expecting to hit servers in early May. But, in the run-up to its launch, a number of new features and content has already been seemingly leaked - including possible new Legend Newcastle.

Earlier this year, Apex dataminer @kralrindo posted to Twitter that they had uncovered a number of new attachments including a new type of laser sight and some new Hop-Ups. One of the Hop-Ups, called "Explosive Lobber" is set to be for the L-Star. Since then, not much has come of the reveal but thanks to a new leak players could see its arrival alongside Season 13.

New information came via u/IUmPotatos on Reddit, who, after watching the Divided Moon map leaked clip from March, noticed that a new Hop-Up slot was present for the L-Star.

"I don't know if anyone posted about this yet, but it seems there is a hopup slot for the LSTAR in the Divided Moon leaked clip. Maybe it's the explosive lobber hopup that was talked about before," the post read.

Whether or not the Hop-Up will see the light of day come Season 13 is anyone's guess. Respawn Entertainment have yet to acknowledge the attachment, and it's always possible that it'll never make its way into the game at all.

But, the effects of the Explosive Lobber, whether it will materialize or not, are still largely unknown. Perhaps it could make things interesting for players using the L-Star in the future, edging its way into the meta.
