Apex Legends: Devotion or Spitfire? The pros and cons of each gun

There are two different LMGs in Apex Legends – Spitfire and Devotion – and both can be useful in the right situation.

Apex Legends features a plethora of different guns but not all guns are created equal.

For example, while there are several different shotguns, you might find yourself favoring one over the other in many situations. One thing everyone can agree on is the Mozambique continues to just belong on the ground far from anyone’s inventory.

With just two light machine guns in the game, however, fans have been debating what of the two is the best choice for any given situation. 

The two LMGs in question are indeed the Spitfire and Devotion, two guns similar in name but different in pretty much every other way.

Spitfire vs. Devotion

An Apex Legends player who goes by DAIQRY on YouTube uploaded a video looking at the differences between the two guns, covering fire rate, damage and much more to determine what comes out on top.

One thing that helps the Spitfire early on is it’s able to start shooting immediately while the Devotion needs to charge up for about a second before it starts shooting.

Here’s a look at how the Spitfire and Devotion stack up damage wise. You can also check out our weapon guide for more information.

  • Spitfire
    • Body: 20 damage points
    • Head: 40 damage points
  • Devotion
    • Body: 17 damage points
    • Head: 34 damage points

Once the Devotion revs up, it will shoot faster than the Spitfire so it can gain some ground there and actually deal out some more damage.

What’s the conclusion? Spitfire or Devotion?

The Spitfire will definitely be a good option in the early-game since players will still be fighting without the best gear in hand. However, as the game progresses, the Devotion still has its strengths and it will do better when facing a full squad due to the higher fire rate.

In the video, it seems like the Spitfire is easily the better gun, but if you manage to grab the Turbocharger for the Devotion, it will make it a no-brainer since it pretty much wipes out the charge time. Without a Turbocharger, it seems like the Spitfire gets the slight edge. 

As is the case with many guns in Apex Legends, though, both of these options are still pretty powerful in their own right and can get the job done in a pinch.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
