Apex Legends season 4 is just around the corner, and fans just can’t wait for it to arrive. The new season is going to feature a lot of exciting new content. This includes new cosmetic items and even a new legend. However, this time, we’ll be getting a weapon we have never seen before.
Players are well aware of the fact that Respawn has a habit of adding new weapons to the game through season. The previous 3 seasons brought some powerful weapons to the game, such as the Charge Rifle. And now, just like the previous seasons, the fourth one is also going to bring a new weapon, and it just just amazing.
New Sentinel Sniper Rifle
Apex Legends season 4 is currently confirmed to introduce a brand new sniper rifle to the game. The sniper rifle is called Sentinel, and it is going to be different from all the other weapons present in the game. This is because it is going to work in a really different way as it will have a unique ability that no other weapon possesses.
On January 30, the PlayStation Blog made a post in which they talked about what season 4 is going to feature. In the post, they provided some important details regarding the upcoming sniper rifle such as how it will function and what its special ability is going to be.
To begin with, the Sentinel sniper file is described as a fast yet accurate and surgical weapon. It will allow you to remove enemies from the battlefield with cold-blooded accuracy. In addition to this, the weapon is considered to be ideal for medium and long ranged battles. This means that players who love snipers won’t be limited to only using it for long range battles. You will be able to take out enemies efficiently that are close or far.
Will Penetrate Armor
In addition to this, the blog post also mentioned that the Sentinel is a weapon that is really powerful against shields. This kind of means that it is so powerful that it will deal a lot of damage even if someone is wearing a high-tier armor. In short, enemies wearing a Golden Shield will be helpless in front of you if you’re using the Sentinel.
Special Ability The Sentinel
Finally, it has also been confirmed that the Sentinel sniper rifle is going to have a special ability. The blog post claims that players will be able to consume a Shield Battery to charge the weapon from an extra yet powerful punch. This basically means that you can charge the weapon for an even powerful shot if you use a Shield Battery while using the weapon. This is something that has never been seen before the game, and it will be exciting to see how it will actually work.
Apex Legends season 4 will go live on February 4. The new season is also going to introduce Revenant as the new legend. However, it is currently believed that the next season might feature more than one legend as people are still confused about Forge.
