Apex Legends Balance Patch Nerfs Peacekeeper and Wingman

  • Apex Legends Balance Update released by Respawn with Patch Notes

"We didn't want to make any hasty changes around launch, because we know a ton of players are still learning the game with lots of new Legends dropping in everyday", Respawn wrote on the Apex Legends subreddit yesterday when they announced the changes. This included a Skullpiercer Wingman nerf and a Peacekeeper nerf.

On the whole, Respawn believe the current selection of weapons is pretty solid; suiting a wide variety of play styles. Instead, the Shotgun Bolt attachments don't increase the rate of fire as significantly as they did before, but only when paired with the Peacekeeper specifically (leaving other shotguns unaffected).

With a purple shotgun bolt attached, you could fire 25 percent faster.

As for character balance, Respawn said it looks at a combination of factors, including pick rate, win rate, and player feedback.

It has also been made slightly more hard to handle, with "increased base hip fire spread" - so shots are peppered around a bit more when not aiming down the sights - and the developer has "decreased the rate at which hip fire spread decays".

Level 1 mitigation 10% - 7.5%.

Level 2 mitigation 20 percent to 13 percent.

Increased availability of energy weapons and ammo in all zone tiers.

Indestructible Four-Legged Robots Can Do Backflips Now
They are now working on a landing controller so that the robot would be able to steadily land on its feet after a big throw. Its party trick is performing a 360-degree backflip, but the robot's speed and agility are its most impressive features.

Caustic occasionally causing disconnects while throwing is Ultimate.

Players occasionally causing disconnects when removing an attachment.

Players occasionally causing disconnects when entering Spectate Mode. Hitbox sizes have also been reduced and optimised for Caustic Pathfinder and Gibraltar to better size them to character gear and model.

In terms of characters, the goal, as far as Respawn is concerned, is to ensure that, although each character has their own distinctive strengths and weaknesses, they remain broadly equal in power/usability. We're planning on adjusting the size of the large character hitboxes to better fit the model. "If these changes are insufficient to bring these characters in line, we're also considering a range of other changes such as natural damage reduction as well as individual kit power tweaks".

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. While we've made small adjustments, we're hopeful that increasing the power of large rigs is healthier than nerfing everyone else. The changes for this have been revealed although they'll be implemented at the start of Season 1.

Caustic's traps will increase in radius by 10 percent.

Lastly, Bangalore's Double Time will reduce the speed bonus to 30 percent.
