With the most recent update in Apex Legends having made major changes to several weapons, one player has come up with an updated graphic showing all of the new damage stats.

The v1.1.1 update in Apex Legends was released on April 16, implementing buffs and nerfs to a variety of weapons, including a few of the more popular guns.

Although patch came out about a month ago, the new damage stats for the weapons were not revealed, until Reddit user ‘OhFamous‘ came up with a graph that showed all of the update stats. 

Longbow DMR

One of the weapons that was heavily modified in the v1.1.1 update was the Longbow DMR sniper rifle, which saw both its fire rate and magazine size increased, as well a series of other buffs.

According to the chart, the Longbow now has 110 DPS, dealing 55 damage for shots on the body, and 110 for headshots.

Sniper Rifles

While the Longbow DMR may have received the most buffs out of all of the sniper rifles, two other weapons in the category (G7 Scout, Triple Take) were all also given a boost in their effectiveness.

  • Lowered leg shot damage reduction: 25% -> 10%
  • Reduced base weapon sway by about 33%
  • Reduced base sway speed by about 25%

As a result, the G7 Scout now deals 135 DPS, with 30 to the body and 60 to the head, while the Triple Take deals 138, 69, and 138 respectively.

Spitfire

Prior to the update, many would rank the M600 Spitfire as one of the best weapons in the game. However, the update nerfed the gun significantly, with the its base damage being reduced by two points and its magazine size decreased for all extender attachments

This means that the Spitfire’s post-update damage profile deals 162 DPS, 18 body shot damage, and 36 headshot damage. The gun’s max magazine size now only goes up to 55 with the Epic mag extender attachment.

The numbers in parentheses next to several of the stats in the graph are meant to show the amount of damage that would be dealt if all of the bullets in a single burst connect with the enemy player. 

Also, keep in mind that some stats may have some inaccuracies, since they were all collected and measured by a player and not officially confirmed by Respawn Entertainment.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
