Apex Legends Genesis Collection event in Season 9 kicks off on June 29, and that update will introduce a number of weapon nerfs and buffs. 

The Legacy season had experienced a slow period of content before Genesis was confirmed with a new trailer on June 24, and patch notes have been released as well.

As part of that update, Apex players can look forward to seeing a number of Legend buffs and nerfs, a new heirloom for Revenant, and more.

Changes for the P2020, Spitfire, 30-30 Repeater, and Longbow are included in the patch – so let’s take a look through each of those tweaks, and how they will affect gameplay.

Apex devs say the new Spitfire changes will bring it “in line” for the Genesis Collection event.

Spitfire nerf

The Spitfire has once again been nerfed in Season 9, with hip fire spread increasing.

  • Increased Hip Fire spread

Dev Note: The Spitfire has continued to over perform so we’re hitting it’s close range hip fire accuracy which should help bring it in line.

P2020 buff

Many would argue the P2020 has needed a buff for a while now, and it’s finally come in the Genesis Collection event. Here’s everything that’s changed:

  • Increased Fire Rate from 6.25 -> 7.0
  • Increased Base Ammo from 12 -> 14
  • Increased Lvl 1 Mag from 14 -> 16
  • Increased Lvl 2 Mag from 16 -> 18
  • Increased Lvl 3 and Lvl 4 Mag from 18 -> 21

30-30 Repeater changes
