Like past years, Respawn Entertainment will have some tricks up their sleeve for April Fool’s day in Apex Legends. We know what to expect thanks to some data mining – and the gold Mozambique makes its annual return.
In the last couple of years, multiplayer games have been leaning more and more into the spirit of April Fool’s Day with funny, one-off jokes.
Some April Fool’s Day jokes have completely changed the way a game is played, if only for a day, while some have been pretty harmless too. For example, Overwatch once made a change where every in-game message was sent in all caps.
Last year, Respawn joined in the fun with a gold version of the Mozambique, and it looks like it’ll be making a return this year too, with a few added extras.
Apex Legends April Fool’s day changes
According to reliable Apex Legends leaker Shrugtal, Respawn will be bringing the golden Mozambique back this year, as well as adding a gold version of the P2020 pistol that will dish out 190 damage if you’re riding a zipline.
Additionally, Shrugtal noted that there will be “a lot” of gold weapons added too. This could be Respawn again leaning into something they did last year, upping the drop rate of certain weapons so everyone gets in on the joke.
The meme weapons aren’t the only additions, though. The leaker also noted that there will be Airhorns and loot balls dropping from the sky. That might make things annoying for some, but it should also give us some funny moments as well.
For this year's April Fools you can expect:
Gold Mozambique. (19 damage per pellet, 9 rounds)
Gold P2020. (25 damage, +7 ammo, 190 damage while on a zipline/balloon)
Many many loot rollers raining from the sky.
A lot of gold weapons…

As these changes will be for April Fool’s Day, you will have to drop into Apex on April 1st to experience them, otherwise, you’ll miss them and have to wait another year.
Though, if you are a fan of constant changes, the upcoming War Games event – which is supposed to start at the backend of April – is set to bring regular playlist changes. So, you can check that out as well.
