Stormender is a Launcher and will be available at launch as well. This weapon can be obtained by completing Sector A12 of the Battle Pass. Unlike other firearms in the game, however, the Stormender shoots EMP grenades at range, with the potential of disabling Equipment, Killstreaks, and more.

Additionally, the launcher will boast infinite rechargeable ammo, albeit there will be a charge time between multiple shots.


HRM-9

The HRM-9 is an SMG designed for close-quarter combat. The firearm will use the typical 9mm rounds that excel at close and mid-range encounters. That said, it won't be available as soon as Season 1 kicks off, and players will have to wait for it to be available later in the season.

As for the unlocking requirements, it will be Armory Unlock and will involve completing specific challenges before players can get their hands on it.


TAQ Evolvere

Last on the list is the TAQ Evolvere. It is an LMG suited for mid and long-range engagements. One of the distinct features of the weapon is that it boasts a multi-caliber chamber, meaning it can shoot both 5.56 and 7.62 rounds. It will be also available in the mid-season update. However, its unlock requirements are yet to be disclosed.


That covers everything that there is to know about all the new weapons that are coming to the shooter titles with the upcoming Season 1 update.
