Every weapon in Apex Legends has predictable recoil patterns, so here’s how you can learn all of the updated patterns in Season 4.
Apex Legends is filled with unique characters that each come with their own ability kits which can change the course of a match.
However, the core gameplay of the popular first-person shooter still requires players to be accurate with their weapons and controlling recoil is massively important for those looking to climb the ranks in Apex Legends.
Recoil patterns have been updated for Apex Legends Season 4.
As with many FPS titles, each gun comes with its own unique spray pattern that players can learn to counteract the weapon’s recoil.
Although it can take time to master some of these patterns in-game, it provides players with a significant advantage once they do, particularly in medium to long-range gunfights.
A simple image guide on how players should move their mouse or analog stick to counter weapon recoil in Apex Legends was created by Reddit user u/iedise, who shared updated patterns for the game’s weapons in Season 4.

While the recoil in some guns is fairly straightforward, there are a few weapons, such as the Spitfire, that have crazy recoil patterns that can prove a challenge for anyone.
Weapons like the Havoc or the Alternator, on the other hand, are probably among the easiest to master as players simply need to pull their crosshair down when firing at a high rate.
Recoil is usually added to games to make it harder for players to hit their shots, rewarding those who put the time in to learn some of these patterns for their weapons of choice.
With so many guns available in the popular battle royale, it is unlikely that you will be able to perfect your aim with every one of them, but some understanding of how they work can give you a massive boost during your next match.
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.
