Apex Legends Season 13 sees most popular gun moved to Replicator

Respawn have decided to change the Replicator weapons for Apex Legends Season 13, removing the game’s most popular weapon from the loot pool.

Apex Legends Season 13 is seeing a pretty major change to the loot pool, as one of the most popular weapons will be entering the Replicator and taken out of floor loot.

There are many changes coming to Apex Legends in Season 13. Not only are we getting a reworked Ranked system and new Legend Newcastle but we are also getting some other gameplay changes that will freshen up the battle royale game.

One of these changes is to do with the availability of certain weapons in floor loot, as one of the game’s most popular guns will be entering the Replicator for Season 13.

In Apex Legends Season 12, players saw the introduction of Replicator weapons, which is essentially just two weapons from the game’s loot pool that will only be available through the crafting.

For Season 12, the weapons in the Replicator were the Flatline and Longbow, two strong weapons that were no doubt seen less in BR matches due to their removal from the loot pool.

For Season 13, these weapons are changing, and thanks to the EA blog post on all the Storm Point map changes, we gained insight into the two new weapons that will be entering the Replicator through an image of the map.

As you can see from the Crafting Rotation in the top right section of the image above, both the R-301 and Rampage will be entering the Replicator and removed from the loot pool in Apex Legends Season 13.

While both these weapons are widely used, the R-301 is arguably the most popular and strongest weapon in the game, next to the Wingman, of course. This has obviously sparked some reactions in the comments below Alpha Intel’s post.

While some are happy with the change, with one user saying “W,” others aren’t too impressed, “?!? The 301? They should have weapons on there people dont regularly use like the Bocek, P2020, LStar idk.”

This has caused a lot of mixed reactions, mostly due to how popular the R-301 is. One thing players have to remember is that it is not being removed from the game or going into the Care Package, it is simply being out in the Replicator.

So, if you wish to use the R-301 or Rampage in Apex Legends Season 13, make it a priority to land near a Replicator or at a POI with one.

Apex Legends pro claims Season 13 ranked changes will make you a better player

An Apex Legends pro has come out in support of the Season 13 ranked changes, claiming it will make players better.

After receiving backlash, Apex Legends pro Mac ‘Albralelie’ Beckwith has shared his thoughts on the new Season 13 ranked system, claiming it will improve players.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some drastic changes to the ranked system, changing the way players gain points and grind through the ranks.

Previously, the system had been more focused on kills, but the new system places emphasis on placement. This has made it harder for players to earn points and level up, as the lobbies have become much more competitive in the final zones.

In Apex Legends Season 13’s Ranked Leagues, players are encouraged to stay alive and play for the win, rather than getting a load of kills. This had led to more squads and players being alive in final circles, making it harder to gain points.

While the community hasn’t been particularly fond of these changes, seasoned Apex Legends pro Albralelie gave his opinions on this new system, supporting the dev’s changes while making some controversial comments.

In a recent stream, the Apex Legends pro shared his feelings towards the changes, believing the new ranked changes are healthy for the game, which is contrary to the community’s reaction.

Ultimately, the pro feels as if the new changes are going to make players better at the game. Albralelie says that the new system “caters to you being able to actually improve as you climb…don’t get defeated.”

The streamer and Apex pro also made some interesting comments on solo players while answering a question about whether solo players should be able to reach the higher ranks.

The pro makes a controversial statement: “should a solo player be able to reach Masters in a team-based competitive BR? Just because it happened before doesn’t mean it was supposed to happen, right?”

It’s interesting to hear a professional Apex Legends player’s take on the new ranked system, especially as casual players have been pretty upset with the changes. All in all, the pro feels it will make players better, and even if players are now in lower ranks than they’re used to, they should use it as motivation to improve.

Clever Apex Legends trick reverts Kraber nerfs

With this clever trick, Apex Legends’ Kraber Sniper Rifle becomes a one-shot machine yet again, even after nerfs.

Apex Legends players have found a way to make the Kraber Sniper Rifle one-shot kill yet again after the Season 13 nerfs.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought some pretty huge changes to the game, especially when it comes to the Legends and weapon meta.

As well as some major Valkyrie nerfs and the introduction of Newcastle, Season 13 also nerfed the only one-shot kill weapon in the game, the Kraber.

This combined with the Helmet buffs caused a change in the weapon’s one-shot headshot potential, but this new trick reverts the changes.

Prior to the nerfs, the Kraber would one-shot any Legend as long as it was a headshot. This made the weapon extremely powerful and useful in end-game situations, as just one shot could change the tide of a fight.

Now, in Season 13, as long as players have the correct armor requirements, the Kraber is no longer a guaranteed one-shot kill.

Having said that, thanks to Apex Legends content creator RossTheeSquirrel, there is indeed a way for players to one-shot any Legend with the Kraber even after the Season 13 patch.

By shooting through Rampart’s Tactical ability, Amped Cover, players actually gain an increase in damage as the shielded wall “amps outgoing shots.”

This increases the Kraber’s headshot damage to revert the Season 13 nerfs, making it a one-shot headshot against any Legend no matter what armor they are wearing.

While Rampart hasn’t been considered the most popular Legend in Apex according to the pick rates, she received a buff in Season 13 and players seem to be more interested in giving her a try.

Now, she also has this added benefit of being the only Legend that has the capabilities to make the Kraber a one-shot kill again, perhaps those who love the Kraber will give her a chance.

Apex Legends players want Pathfinder Passive from mobile

Apex Legends players are calling for the devs to give Pathfinder a new Passive seen in the mobile version of the battle royale.

Apex Legends players on PC and console have wanted a new Passive for Pathfinder for some time now, and the mobile version of the battle royale may have the answer.

Apex Legends Mobile has hit the ground running, with loads of content at launch including an exclusive Legend, Fade, who has some great abilities.

PC and console players have been slightly jealous about some of the features seen in Apex Mobile, wanting them included in the main version of the game despite getting an exciting new Legend in Newcastle.

Now, some are even suggesting that one of Pathfinder’s mobile-exclusive abilities should become his new Passive on PC and console.

Apex Legends Recon class

For those who are unaware, Pathfinder’s Passive has been extremely underwhelming for some time now, as the ability to scan Survey Beacons and reveal the next zone.

This is something that all Recon Legends can do, so the community has been calling for Pathfinder to have something more personalized for the Legend.

The devs did expand on this slightly, as now Pathfinder gets his Ultimate back after scanning, which isn’t the case for all the other Recon Legends.

Popular Apex Legends content creator TheGamingMerchant put out a video suggesting an idea for Pathfinder’s Passive, which is inspired by Apex Legends Mobile.

In Apex Legends Mobile, every Legend has a perk system that gives them new abilities and added benefits. One of Pathfinder’s is the ability to pull downed teammates with his grapple, which is called “Friend Reunion.”

TheGamingMerchant thinks this would be a great Passive for Pathfinder in the main game. This would give Pathfinder an added role of support, pulling downed teammates in to cover for a safe revive.

We’ll have to wait and see what the devs do to Pathfinder’s Passive in the future, as it’s unlikely that changes will be coming for the Legend anytime soon.
