How to rapid-fire a Peacekeeper in Apex Legends for maximum damage

The Apex Legends Peacekeeper may have been nerfed, but players are still finding ways to make it perform above and beyond its abilities – including this method that turns it into an automatic weapon.

On November 22, Apex Legends players were caught off guard by an update that effectively nerfed the Peacekeeper by decreasing the headshot damage, and increasing the rechamber time.

Despite the nerf, this weapon is still very powerful, and still remains favored by many players over the automatic EVA-8 shotgun. However, some players have found a way to essentially turn the Peacekeeper into an automatic weapon, which helps elevate it to easily one of the strongest weapons in the game.

Reddit user Voppo showed that if you have two different sights for the Peacekeeper, you can drop one of them on the ground and use it to shoot the gun faster.

By juggling the two sights and taking advantage of an animation cancel, you’re able to unload a whole clip from the Peacekeeper much faster.

It is worth mentioning that you likely won’t be running into this a whole lot in a real game since it is very situational.

Where it would be handy is when defending a door or hallway, somewhere you can act as a major barrier to anyone trying to get through.

If you’re looking for a good team to group up with, whether it’s Duos or Squads, then you could perhaps consider a strategy with Caustic or Wattson where you could lock a room down and camp.

For the time being, this isn’t too powerful of a method, but it could certainly become one if enough players catch wind of it, and figure out more ideal situations where it’d come in handy.

If it ever becomes widespread, we can expect to see Respawn step in and put an end to it, as this is surely not working as intended.

You can keep an eye on it yourself to see if it’s set for a fix by checking the Apex Legends Trello page. We’ll keep you updated if this is ever patched out of the game.

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.
