Why Mozambique is no longer the worst weapon in Apex Legends

The Mozambique, the weapon everyone used to hate in Apex Legends, has been buffed for Season 2, making it a solid weapon to have in your arsenal.

The Mozambique became such a meme in Apex that the developers patched in an animation that allowed your character to throw down the weapon after you picked it up, showing their disgust with the weak weapon.

While the animation was amusing, it is no longer in the game and for good reason – the Mozambique is a weapon that you can carry in your loadout with pride.

The Mozambique is useful now.

Fans knew a Mozambique buff was coming in Season 2, but there’s no way they could have suspected it had the potential to be this good.

Admittedly the base version of the gun is still pretty bad, but once you pair it with the Hammerpoint Hop-Up, it gains a lot of power and actually becomes a worthy weapon.

EAMany changes came with Season 2.

This hop-up is able to increase its damage to unshielded targets meaning it can shred enemy players at the beginning of a match or it can be used as a finisher weapon.

So while the gun largely relies on the use of an add-on for its effectiveness, it has come a long way.

Reddit user Mimikker showcased the power of the weapon coupled with its Hop-Up and the results were quite devastating. The combination of enemies having no shield and the long range of gun showed how it can find its place in the meta.

Don’t just take our word for it, but instead look at how it performs in action for yourself.

Players will discover this newly useful shotgun will combo extremely well with the Alternator, or any fast firing weapon for that matter.

The Alternator is able to melt the shield off an enemy while the Mozambique can come in for the cleanup to chip away the final bits of health.

One thing’s for certain and it’s that the Mozambique is no longer worthless – go and check it out for yourself in Apex Legends Season 2

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.”

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.
