Apex Legends players want Respawn to put the weapons that are placed inside the Replicators on a regular rotation, just like they do with other bits of floor loot. 

At the start of Apex Legends Season 12, Respawn made some pretty massive changes to their popular battle royale, bringing in Mad Maggie as a new legend, tweaking the maps, and balancing other characters.

On top of that, the devs caught many players off guard when they revealed that weapons – in this case, the Flatline and Longbow – would be removed from floor loot and placed inside of the Replicators.

For many players, it’s not a bad change, seeing as they can easily grab some materials and then craft the gun they want without needing to search all game for it. Though, others would like to see Respawn mix it up a little.
