A new Apex Legends leak has emerged, suggesting that Respawn Entertainment may be planning to add the Explosive Lobber Hop-Up to the battle royale title in Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 will bring a plethora of brand-new content for players to enjoy, with recent teasers indicating the arrival of the Legend Newcastle as well as some changes to the Storm Point BR map.

Now, a new leak seems to suggest that the developers might be planning to add a new Hop-Up in Season 13. We’ll go over everything that has been revealed about the Explosive Lobber for Apex Legends.

L-STAR Apex Legends

Back in January, notable data miner ‘KralRindo’ revealed some code in the Apex Legends files that detailed two new Hop-Ups and laser sights that come in different colors. One of the leaked Hop-Ups was the Explosive Lobber for the L-STAR LMG.

Reddit user ‘IUmPotatos’ looked through the Divided Moon map leak from March and pointed out a Hop-Up slot for the L-STAR in the clip. This could mean that Respawn are testing the Explosive Lobber so that they can add it in Season 13.

The L-STAR LMG makes use of weapon stacks instead of standard ammo. While the exact effect of this Apex Legends Hop-Up hasn’t been revealed, it may allow the weapon to fire explosive rounds.

If the L-Star does receive a brand-new Hop-Up in Season 13 then its popularity and pick rate may get a major boost. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt.

It’s possible that the Explosive Lobber Hop-Up may have been scrapped altogether, and its code remains in the Apex Legends game files. Only time will tell if Respawn will actually add it to the battle royale title.
