For all the leak-hungry XDefiant fiends out there, the latest information is finally here – hot off the press. According to XDefiant data miner AgainTx, the leaks this time around are focused on an upcoming batch of weapons to the game, with some genre standards that are sure to please longtime FPS fans:

If you've been playing online first-person shooters on either a consistent or casual basis for the past 5-10 years, then you'll surely recognize staples such as the Thompson, G36, Famas, FAL, and Bizon. These have been featured in all kinds of major shooters, ranging from the Call of Duty series to the Battlefield series to Counter-Strike.

I'm curious to see whether the L115 will replace the already supremely overpowered TAC-50 sniper rifle. Here's to hoping it will arrive in a much more balanced shape than the game's current snipers, in any case.

XDefiant Reddit is eager to see FAL and G36 added to the game

Assault rifles such as the Famas and FAL have also regularly been part of meta-builds in recent Call of Duty titles, such as the rebooted Modern Warfare trilogy. Players know that when they see these weapons arriving in the game, they'll likely change the dynamics of the battlefield in a major way, but whether they'll become as popular and coveted as in the CoD franchise remains to be seen.

What's for certain is that the XDefiant Reddit has already been calling for the addition of the G36 and FAL to the game. I therefore imagine they'll be pleased to hear about this most recent news. Despite repeated calls for the SCAR assault rifle to be added, it doesn't seem to be arriving anytime soon according to this latest leak, but who knows what the future holds?
