Precision and aim accuracy will be integral for this new weapon as it might even work as a Sniper Rifle. However, the actual verdict about this weapon can only be delivered once it is released.

Along with this, a new legend is going to join the game from Season 9.

Kairi Imahara aka Valkyrie is coming as the new character Apex Legends Season 9. She was introduced in the 8-minute-long trailer, and it looks like Respawn is planning to connect Titanfall-lore with Apex Legends.

It turns out Valkyrie is the daughter of Viper, an Apex Predator who fell victim to Jack Cooper in Titanfall 2. The trailer shows Valkyrie meeting with Kuben Blisk, leader of the Predators. They speak briefly about Viper, and Valkyrie reveals her intentions to avenge her father.

Respawn brilliantly tied the narrative from Titanfall to Apex Legends and this might attract a huge player base. A new weapon, new legend, and some much-anticipated map changes will definitely make things interesting in Season 9.
