Two new Hop-ups are coming to Apex Legends Season 9 for three different weapons. Deadeye’s Tempo and Shatter Caps will help buff up your Sentinel, 30-30 Repeater, and Bocek Bow.

Hop-ups can transform a good Apex Legends weapon into a beast. Everyone who’s been beamed by a Skullpiercer Wingman or Longbow can certainly attest to that.

Even mediocre weapons like the Mozambique and P2020 have been helped out by new hop-ups in recent seasons. Now, Respawn are chucking a couple more in for good measure, targeting more long-range weaponry.

Deadeye’s Tempo

  • Weapons: Sentinel & Bocek Bow
  • Description: Firing at the perfect moment increases fire rate

Deadeye’s Tempo favors those who want to fire rapidly with the sniper and Bocek Bow. The Sentinel’s fire rate is known for being pretty slow, but each bullet packs a punch. If you can get into a rhythm with the Sentinel while charged up with Deadeye’s Tempo, you can shred enemies.

The same goes for the Bocek Bow. The hop-up will definitely improve its ability to take mid-range fights, being able to burst down an enemy in the blink of an eye.

To keep you on time, there is a small blue indicator on the screen that will show if you are in the ‘zone’ for the shot to be fired, and keep your fire rate faster.

Shatter Caps

  • Weapons: Bocek Bow & 30-30 Repeater Description: Rounds split into a blast pattern on firing

Shatter Caps allows long and medium-range weapons like the Bow and 30-30 to be more viable at close range. Shatter Caps splits each shot into six projectiles. Damage per projectile is reduced pretty heavily, however, it can do a ton of work up close.

The addition will make both the Bow and the 30-30 Repeater useful at mid-range as well as up close. The Heavy gun has isn’t everyone’s favorite since its addition in Season 8, so the hop-up will certainly come in handy.

Apex Legends Season 9 will launch on May 4. The update will introduce new Legend Valkyrie, the aforementioned Bocek Bow weapon, a new-look Olympus, and more.
