Apex Legends fans believe that they might have stumbled onto a major issue with the Devotion that is purposefully stopping the LMG from hitting headshots at long range.
With the start of Apex Legends Season 6, Respawn shook up the battle royale’s loot and weapon pool once again with the addition of the Volt SMG as well as a changing of the weapons that are only found in care packages.
As a few weapons have started to stand out above the rest, notably the Flatline, players have started to change up their arsenals and start using different weapons throughout matches.
However, when it comes to the Devotion – one of Apex’s best LMGs – it appears as if Respawn might have a problem on their hands as players believe that is being restricted from hitting headshots at long range.
The Devotion has risen to the top of the ranks in Apex Season 6.
The problem was pointed out by Reddit user JustAnAverageGuy20, who showcased a clip of themself using the Devo inside of the game’s training mode.
While standing on the hill to the left of the training mode’s spawn area, the Redditor aimed down sights for a headshot and shot right the training dummy that was furthest away from them. When the shot hit, it only registered as a body shot. This happened again when they repeated the process.
Dexerto also tested this out with a few shots of the Devo and ended up the same result – just 16 damage to the body over and over again. Though, as you can see in the below clip, headshots do register by taking a few steps further forward than where we stood at first.
Given that one of the big bonuses of the Devotion is its headshot multiplier at short range, it’s pretty unusual that the weapon appears to be having issues with hitting headshots.
Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.
Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around.
Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.
The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.
Rampart joined the party in Apex Legends Season 6, but the countdown is on to Season 7.
Apex Legends Season 7 legend
Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.
The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.
The Trident, a hovercraft-style vehicle appears throughout the new Ascension trailer
We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.
The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them.
Apex on Steam
With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.
New weapon type: Gadgets
It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.
