Your dreams will no longer be memes as the Mozambique is finally getting a buff, which means it might not be the worst weapon in Apex Legends anymore.

The thing with the Mozambique is not only is it widely considered to be one of the worst weapons in the game, but it’s also a shotgun that’s strength has been compared to hitting somebody with a pool noodle.

Respawn has leaned in quite heavily into the meme, even adding in an animation that allows players to toss away the weapon in disgust. However, this animation might not have a use for that much longer.

Respawn EntertainmentOctane is happy about the Mozambique buff.

Mozambique buff here!

Respawn revealed during EA Play 2019 buffs were coming to the Mozambique but they didn’t go into any extra detail about what the buff will be but we do know improvements are on the way and the gun will become usable.

There are a lot of directions Respawn could take the Mozambique in whether that’s a simple damage buff or a complete rework. Whatever they decide on will likely be well received by the players since the weapon is currently best left on the ground.

What else is coming in Season 2?

Outside of this Mozambique buff, there are several things coming with the new season that will get players excited. Fans have been starving for new content and Respawn will be delivering in a big way.

The biggest news to come out of Season 2 is the addition of Wattson as the new hero. Also confirmed is the new L-Star SMG and a ranked mode that will give players different rewards at the end of the season based on where they ended up at.

Season 2 kicks off on July 2 and players will be able to test out all of the new content then.

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

The Pathfinder shoulder bug blocked a portion of the screen after using the grapple.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
