Apex Legends peacekeeper nerf

Apex Legends has broken a long period of silence today. Respawn Entertainment announced that it would be making an update to the Peacekeeper, arguably one of the best weapons in the game. This is a welcome change, but it is only a start.

The peace has been kept

The Apex Legends community has been calling for a Peacekeeper nerf since the most recent projectile update. The weapon is able to do 120+ damage at ridiculous ranges, making it far too versatile in any situation. A shotgun should blow people away at close range, but when it hits for 120 at medium range, you no longer have a fair weapon. Slap a precision choke on that bad boy and you have quite the wombo-combo.

The Apex Legends Twitter page tweeted out that the Peacekeeper would see an increased rechamber time from 1.1 to 1.2 and a decreased head shot multiplier from 1.5 to 1.25. This is a change that is headed in the right direction, but a very minute one. It’s so minute that it may not even be very noticeable. This sort of tweak will definitely not dethrone the Peacekeeper. I’m fine with the Peacekeeper being a viable weapon, but in its current state, it’s much more than that.
