‘Apex Legends’ update attempts to balance its most powerful weapons

Apex Legends Wingman Nerf Update Reddit Patch Notes Apex Legends Balance Update released by Respawn with Patch Notes

Apex Legends will get its first Battle Pass feature starting on March 12, Daily Esports is reporting, citing a source who claims to have knowledge of its plans.

That said, as mentioned above, the new balance update aimed to nerf the weapon a little bit by reducing its fire rate from 3.1 to 2.6 shots per second, reducing its skullpiercer headshot damage multiplier from 2.5 to 2.25, and increased base hip fire spread and decreased the rate which hip fire spread decays. So, think Battle Royale (the movie), where one guy got an Uzi, while someone else got a pot lid. We're planning on adjusting the size of the large character hitboxes to better fit the model.

Respawn's post on Reddit first detailed a new update that's now live in the game, which makes weapon changes. "You shouldn't have to read our patch notes every few days just to keep up with how characters and weapons now work", they say, which is a sentiment I appreciate.

Over 670,000 people tuned into Apex Legends at its February peak, according to GitHyp, compared to around a still massive 615,000 for Fortnite, which also has a lifetime peak of nearly 1.5 million.

Along with these two guns being nerfed, the patch also comes with more general fixes such as script errors being addressed that caused the occasional disconnect during matches. Similarly, the Peacekeeper's Shotgun Bolt rechamber rate has been reduced.

Level 1 mitigation 10 percent to 7.5 percent. Those changes will come at the start of Season 1.

Level 2 mitigation 20 percent to 13 percent.

Apex Legends Wingman Nerf Update Reddit Patch Notes

This is no real surprise, anyway, given all the threads we've seen about how overpowered the Wingman is, with some declaring it the best weapon in the game, thanks to its overall damage potential and performance across different ranges - and particularly given the fact that it's not hard to find.

Finally, the developers also noted that energy weapons will appear more frequently across the map, and more to the point, a greater amount of ammo will be available for these guns.

Caustic occasionally causing disconnects while throwing is Ultimate. We've seen some good feedback from players about how to make these pistols more exciting without losing out on the goal above that we're listening to.

Players occasionally causing disconnects when removing an attachment.

- Double Time - Reduced move speed bonus to 30% from 40%.

Since these adjustments have a MAJOR impact on the game, we want to make sure there aren't any major bugs, so we didn't want to rush them out.
