Weapon Buffs/Nerfs

We couldn't wait to hear what plans Respawn had for the weapons in-game.

Especially due to the arrival of the Volt SMG.

Here are all of the changes coming to the weapons in Season 6 of the Apex games.


You can read about the following topics by clicking the link:


  • Reduced vertical recoil in burst mod
  • Slightly reducing recoil in pattern on 2nd and 3rd shot so first burst kicks less
  • Burst mode time between bursts .32 -> .28

Charge Rifle

  • Will now use 2 ammo per shot
  • Increased mag size from 4 to 8

Triple Take

  • Increase fire rate 1.25 -> 1.4
  • Increased Mag size from (5/6/7/8) to (6/7/8/9)
  • Built the Choke hop up into the weapon by default. Toggle select-fire to enable/disable the Choke


  • Built the Choke hop up into the weapon by default. Toggle select-fire to enable/disable the Choke


  • Improve recoil controllability


  • Updated Havoc with a new recoil pattern
  • Designer Note: The Havoc's existing recoil pattern had constant horizontal movement. This means it would either be too difficult to control if there was too much recoil or far too easy to control if there was too little recoil. Updating to a new pattern which is more consistent in style with existing recoil patterns


  • Increased clip size from 3 to 4.


  • Increased Damage from 13 to 15
  • Decreased Hammerpoint damage multiplier from 2.7 to 2.35. This will leave Hammerpoint P2020 damage unchanged in most scenarios
  • Increased mag size from (10/13/15/18) to (12/14/16/18)


  • Only requires one shield cell to charge if the player has the gold armor


  • Slightly Reduce vertical recoil in burst mode
  • Increase horizontal recoil in Auto Mode
