Respawn Entertainment has made a huge success with "Apex Legends" so far. The video game has been out for a mere month, and it has already attracted over 50 million players. It keeps breaking records previously set by "Fortnite Battle Royale," and it will be interesting to see how these two amazing games will compete in the future.

Both games have received some big updates recently, but some players may not be happy with the latest changes in Respawn's game.

Considering that "Apex Legends" is a player-versus-player online game, the balance is very important. This is why its developer has recently released some weapon balance changes, and two weapons have been nerfed. In addition to this, the video game creator has released some more changes with the latest update, and we also know what things are gonna be released in the future.

Apex Legends update hit live servers recently

Jayfresh_Respawn posted a detailed explanation of the last "Apex Legends" patch on the video game subreddit. The developer wrote a long post, revealing the patch changes and the explanation for them. Additionally, the developer posted some more changes that Respawn Entertainment is going to make at the start of Season 1.

Wingman has been nerfed in the latest patch. Its rate of fire has been reduced from 3.1 to 2.6, Skullpiercer headshot damage has been nerfed to 2.25 from 2.50, and the weapon now has an increased hip spread.

The developer has also decreased the rate at which hip fire spread decays.

Peacekeeper has also been affected by the latest patch. Shotgun Bolt rechamber rate has been reduced for it on every level. For example, the level 1 mitigation has been reduced to 7.5 percent (down from 10 percent), while the level 3 mitigation has been nerfed from 25 percent to 16 percent.

In addition to these changes, Wingman and Peacekeeper availability has been reduced in all zone tiers. On the other side, "Apex Legends" players will find more energy weapons and ammo in the in-game world.

No Mozambique buff

Mozambique is arguably the worst weapon in "Apex Legends" and many players have complained about it. Unfortunately, Respawn Entertainment hasn't buffed it in the update. "We love y’all’s ‘Bique memes, so we’re hesitant to lose that," is what the developer jokingly wrote in the Reddit post. On a serious note, the developer wrote that the goal is to have a power curve of weapons. This is why some weapons in the game will be powerful and rare, while some of them will be more common, but also much weaker.
