There's a certain sense of nostalgia surrounding the Peacekeeper shotgun.

Whilst the likes of the Mastiff and EVA-8 have made their way to the Battle Royale title in recent months, the Peacekeeper remains the OG shotgun for long-serving members of the Apex community.

On this page, we're going to tell you everything you need to know about the Peacekeeper, including whether this vintage shotgun still has the necessary power to force its way into your inventory.

Peacekeeper Attachments

All short-range optics work with the gun, so you can use Holo, HCOG, Variable Holo and even the Digital Threat Legendary attachment with it.

A shotgun bolt can be fitted to increase reload speed, while a Precision Choke hop-up can be fitted to narrow the spread of each shot. That essentially increases the gun’s lethality, so you should definitely be looking for it when possible.

  • 2x HCOG Bruiser
  • 1x Digital Threat

Peacekeeper Review - Is It Good?

We made a big deal above about how the Peacekeeper looks, but it’s also a devastating shotgun. Its small magazine size means accuracy is key, something helped by using the Precision Choke hop-up mod.

Thankfully, the gun hits like a truck – meaning you can do a huge amount of damage, killing unarmored enemies in a single shot and fully-armoured ones in just two.
