Apex Legends Factory Issue Peacekeeper Skin
March 4, 2022: Updated to include information on the new weapon skins.


The Peacekeeper has been part of Apex Legends for a very long time. Throughout its lifespan in the game, it has received multiple upgrades, multiple nerfs, and it was even removed from ground loot for a while. It's also one of the Shotguns that you can get in the game.

Each Shotgun has its own unique attributes and perks that make them monsters on the battlefield. However, it also means that a Shotgun that suits someone else may not suit you. This is why it's important to learn the basics of each weapon, so you can make an educated decision on which one to use in your next match.

In this guide, we're going to show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the Peacekeeper.

Peacekeeper Review - Is It Good?

The Peacekeeper is a devastating shotgun, but it can leave you vulnerable to other attacks if it's your only weapon. Its small magazine size means accuracy is key. It also means that need to think carefully about how you're going to use this weapon. If you use it and run out of ammunition in the middle of an exposed area, you'll become an easy target. Thankfully, the gun hits like a truck – meaning you can do a huge amount of damage. You can kill unarmored enemies in a single shot. You can even kill armoured enemies in just two or three shots, if your aim is accurate.


If the Peacekeeper doesn't sound like the weapon for you, then there are plenty more to choose from in Apex Legends. Check out the Alternator SMG for a small weapon that packs a punch and has maintained its title as a fan favourite over multiple seasons. If you want to try another Shotgun, then check out our guide on the Mastiff. You need to think about your shots when you're using this weapon, but it's truly lethal.
