Apex Legends: New Havoc Energy Rifle and Its Attachments Revealed

Respawns latest title Apex Legends is becoming immensely popular amongst the fans of battle royale genre, and players are pretty hyped to explore this latest addition.

With the remarkable popularity for Apex Legends, Respawn is set to release its first new weapon to the game. This new weapon namely Havoc Energy Rifle is indeed a weapon to deal havoc on the enemies.

Havoc Energy Rifle is a hitscan weapon which denotes; there is no bullet drop or delay in Select Receiver attachment enabled charge mode. To experience this new weapon, players can access Apex Legends on any device and start using it similar to other weapons in the title.

The Havoc Energy Rifle is a fully automatic rifle which has a short delay between pulling the trigger and bullets start to fire. This delay in the firing of bullets makes them immensely energized and deals enormous damage on enemies.

Due to such deadly blow, this latest weapon is considered to be equivalent to the Hemlok which has the highest damage per shot in comparison to the other in-game AR weapon in the title.

Interestingly Havoc has other unique characteristics which no other weapon in Apex Legends provides. Havoc comes with two different hop-up attachments which have their unique functionality.

Both the attachments include their specific advantage which is capable of destroying the enemies. The Turbocharger Hop-up reduces the delay time, making Havoc a deadly weapon which no enemy can defend.

On the other hand, Select Fire Receiver hop-up attachment converts the Havoc into a single firing weapon which has a single blast, but this single blast can knock the enemy in no time.

With this first weapon added to Apex Legends, it is clear that Respawn is ready to roll out new extended content for the title. It is not farfetched to witness more weapons to be added in the future and many members feel that soon we may also observe new playable characters to be added to the title.

Battle Royale genre is very hit amongst gamers and seeing this trend, developers at Respawn are coming up with innovative ideas and in-game interactions which no other title have provided yet.

With the inclusion of Havoc Energy Rifle players and fans are speculating what additional content is planned for the future and how the game interactions would change with new content.

Currently, it seems Apex Legends is ahead of its planned schedule as the title has received a lot of positive response from the gaming community.

Let’s see, how Respawn makes this trending title last for the upcoming ten years as developers have pre-announced that they are looking forward to making Apex Legends last for coming ten years.

Fortnite: How to Locate the Motel and RV Park

Fortnite has recently ended its season 7 with a lot of successful events, challenges, and themes for fans to enjoy and indulge with the title.

As season 7 came to an end, community members have started to speculate new theories, events, and tasks for season 8.

Epic Games includes new challenges for every new week of a season, but currently, as season 7 has ended and season 8 has some time for its release, players are enjoying new Overtime Challenges to fill the time gap between the two seasons.

Currently the week one has commenced, and players have a golden opportunity to grab a battle star as all the players can take part in these events, regardless of having a battle pass or not.

This week’s Overtime Challenge requires players to open up seven chests or ammo box at Motel or RV Park. Players who are regular to Fortnite would easily locate these two locations as they are some of the oldest locations which didn’t get hampered from the map changes.

These two places managed to survive for the past seven seasons with some minor damage from comets and dimensional rifts. The Motel is situated at the west of Lazy Links and north-east from the Pleasant Park near the D2 quadrant on the map.

It is easy to locate chest and ammo crates near this location, and the gold chests are readily available at the truck and alongside the pool.

Ammo chests are available mostly inside the houses, and small sheds and the golden chest are mostly atop of buildings and especially on the second floor. Although this location is calm and does not involve much combat, due to the central location for the task, this place will be mostly occupied, so bear in mind to thoroughly scan the surroundings before looting the crates.

Because it is very likely that a squad or two may be camping nearby to eliminate any possible suspect, so planning before will surely be a smart move.

The RV park is located near the south-west of Lonely Lodge and North-east of Retail Row. This site is filled with mini houses and RVs all across, and players can look for chest and ammo with ease as the location has plenty of available resources.

This week challenges are believed to be easy to accomplish and less challenging as they are meant to attract as many players as possible to compensate for the delay in season 8. Let’s see, what more events will be available for fans in the future.

Top 9 Ways to Fix Apple Watch Not Turning On Issue

Is your Apple Watch is not working at all? Does your Watch fail to turn on? It can happen due to underlying issues. The black display always doesn’t always imply damage. Many of such problems can be rectified quickly. Don’t panic and check out the 9 tricks to make your Apple Watch turn on.

Follow the methods given below to make the Apple Watch work again like it used to.

Make Your Apple Watch Function Smoothly.

1. Reboot Your Smartwatch

Generally, the Watch stops working or the display becomes dark because of the power issue, but it only happens if you were using it throughout the whole day.

In this type of situation, you should conduct a hard reset. Well, this is more convenient because in this busy life waiting for half an hour or more for the smartwatch to get charged will be worthless, if this doesn’t do the trick. The Watch may have been facing this problem because of its software. Or else, you might have accidentally selected a mode that darkened the display. A reboot will make the smartwatch switch off entirely, and then you will be able to switch on your smartwatch. This can solve all the issues except the power one.

● Firstly, hold the side switch which is round in shape and the small button which is situated just underneath the crown.

● Keep holding both of them till the symbol of Apple gets displayed. This means that the Smartwatch is starting again.

● The reboot is done in few seconds but holds both buttons for minimum half a minute before finishing your hard reboot. It is so because in some of the situation it may take half a minute to get done reboot entirely.

2. Charge the Watch

It is worth noting that if your Watch stops working after using it throughout the whole day, then it is the low battery problem. So charging it up is the only solution for it. But if you are facing low battery problem in the mid of the day, then it can be possible that your Smartwatch is not getting charged even when you are putting it on charging.

● Look at the place where you set its charger for charging it up. It can be possible that any plastic is stuck and this obstruction is preventing it from getting it charged.

3. Ensure That Power Reserve Is Switched Off

In Power Reserve, your Apple Watch will only be able to let you know the time. This feature helps your smartwatch to work for more time. No app works in this mode, so smartwatch doesn’t remain smart if this mode is on. So prefer having this mode switched off.

4. Wear Apple Watch Properly

If your Apple Watch is not able to note your activity, then it can be possible that you are not wearing it correctly. It might have become loose. Wear it a bit tight.

5. Update Your Apple Watch

It can be possible that your smartwatch is working very slow. To fix this problem update it.

6. Do The Pairing Again

Some of the times pairings happen but do not work. In such cases, prefer doing unpairing and after that, try to pair once more.

7. Always Clean It

On regular basis prefer cleaning the screen and don’t allow any dust particle to penetrate it.

8. Remove Unnecessary Applications

It can be possible that your smartwatch is not working correctly because there are plenty of applications stored on it. To make your smartwatch work efficiently remove the applications that you don’t use.

9. Avoid Exhaustion Of Battery

The constant exhaustion of battery may influence the Watch’s performance, so try to avoid it as much as possible.
