When it comes to known stats, the Apex Legends Hailstorm LMG recoil pattern has been revealed. It is similar to the R-301 assault rifle recoil.

The Hailstorm recoil pattern was found by data miner @kralrindo. They provided footage of the recoil pattern on Twitter, along with a screenshot showing the spread. Combined, these make it easy to gauge how tricky the weapon will be to control.

When is the Hailstorm LMG being added to Apex Legends?

As for an Apex Legends Hailstorm LMG release date, there is potential for the weapon to be added in Season 10.

Of course, there have been a number of different weapons leaked over the last year, some of which still haven’t been added to the game. It’s possible that they will be added before this new Hailstorm LMG makes an appearance. It also remains possible that this weapon will be cut during development. Not everything makes it into a public build.

New Apex Legends Hop-Ups have also been discovered in data mining efforts, including a sniper rifle power-up. Finally, a mobile version of Apex has been leaked, featuring Team Deathmatch, 1v1, and more.
