Mozambique in Apex Legends

Season 9: Legacy will bring a ton of new content to Apex Legends, and it seems that the Mozambique is also set to receive a huge upgrade to its magazine in the coming update.

Apex Legends fans are eagerly awaiting the launch of Season 9: Legacy on May 4. The update will bring a plethora of new content for fans to enjoy, including new Hop-Ups, map alterations, and balancing changes for Legends.

The Mozambique shotgun will also get a huge buff when the update drops. While the weapon has already received an increase in its magazine size before, the Season 9 trailer has revealed another upcoming upgrade.

Respawn Entertainment released a teaser for Apex’s new Arenas mode, and a few eagle-eyed fans noticed Mirage using a Mozambique that’s able to hold six shots at once. This happened at the 1:30 mark in the trailer.

This is a big change for the sidearm since it’s currently only able to hold four rounds. Buffing up the gun’s magazine will allow you to fire more shots, and dish out more damage per clip to your opponents.

Being able to take down your enemies without reloading can prove valuable in the midst of battle, so this buff will make a huge difference to the Mozambique.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this Mozambique buff was shown in Arenas mode, and not the battle royale. So, it’s entirely possible that this is just a special stat that’s available only within that specific game mode.

Arenas mode will consist of a different playstyle, and could call for different weapons than the battle royale. We won’t know for sure until Respawn release the patch notes.

We’ll keep checking for any more updates regarding this, and will let you know if the devs confirm this buff for the main game as well.

Apex Legends Season 13 is well underway, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 13 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 13 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 13 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 21 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 14 on the horizon, players are set to gain yet another Legend in Vantage, making the decision even harder.

Let’s see how the current roster’s pick rates are looking to give us an idea of the most popular Legends in Apex Legends Season 13 before the new Legend arrives to shake it up.

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 13

5. Bloodhound – 8.5%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 13.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark as a season goes on, and they currently stand at 8.5%. They are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

4. Pathfinder – 8.6%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 8.6%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

3. Valkyrie – 9.5%

Despite false nerf rumors, Valkyrie is the third most popular Legend for Season 13 with a 9.5% pick rate. The movement Queen’s Jetpack Passive allows players to escape any kind of situation, which is crucial to surviving.

As well as her Passive, her Skyward Dive Ultimate is also great for mobility. This ability is the best rotational tool in all of Apex Legends, as it allows her and the team to relocate from a bad position or situation, into a good one.

Lastly, Valkyrie’s Tactical is also extremely useful for being aggressive and getting enemies out of camping spots, so long as you have enough room above you to launch the Missile Swarm.

2. Wraith – 10.1%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number two spot with a 10.1% pick rate in Season 13.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 13.

1. Octane – 11.3% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 13

With an 11.3% pick rate, the speed demon takes the number one spot again, continuing his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 13, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 13. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out our guide on the best Legends to choose in Season 13.

Apex Legends Charge Rifle set for nerf — but not in Season 14

Apex Legends Season 14 will see a variety of buffs and nerfs, but it seems the Charge Rifle is not a priority for the devs.

Published

The Apex Legends devs have revealed information regarding the Charge Rifle, which is set for a nerf, but not in Season 14.

Apex Legends Season 14 is set to bring a variety of changes to the game, including various buffs and nerfs to weapons and Legends. This has players excited, with Apex pro ImperialHal even feeling like Season 14 will be “broken” but in a good way.

The new Legend Vantage is sure to spice things up, along with the Laser Sight attachment, which could bring a close-range SMG meta to the battle royale.

While the long-range playstyle of Vantage gave the devs some fears, during a press event, Senior Game Designer Eric Canavese also touched on the Charge Rifle and its strength, mentioning that nerfs for the weapon are in the works.

According to The Loadout, Canavese said that there are “no plans to do anything about the Charge Rifle in Season 14.”

Eric Canavese also made it clear that the developers are looking at the Charge Rifle and keeping tabs on its strength:

“We understand some of the issues with the Charge Rifle… We know how it spikes a bit differently… So, we are thinking about it, we’re working on it, but we have nothing to announce and no plans we can talk about at the moment.”

Clearly, there are no Charge Rifle changes coming in Season 14, but it does seem like it’s on the developer’s radar, as Eric states they are “working on it.”

Perhaps the introduction of Vantage will be the breaking point for the Charge Rifle, as her Passive is greatly beneficial when using Snipers, so we may see it used more.


Only time will tell, but for now, check out why NICKMERCS wants Call of Duty: Warzone to copy Apex Legends.

Apex Legends pro believes Season 14 will be “broken”

Apex Legends pro Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen believes Season 14 of Respawn’s battle royale will be the most broken yet.

Published

Apex Legends Season 14 is set to introduce a variety of buffs and nerfs which has pro TSM player ImperialHal believing the update will be broken.

Apex Legends Season 14 is almost upon players, and as we edge closer to the release date, EA have been trickling information about Vantage, buffs and nerfs, and Level Cap increase.

Players are excited for the update, especially after Apex has suffered from a noticeable lull towards the end of Season 13, with games like Fall Guys becoming more popular on Twitch.

With that said, Apex Legends pro ImperialHal has expressed his opinions on the new season, believing the season could be “broken,” but in a good way.

During a stream, ImperialHal stated that while he hasn’t seen all of the Season 14 changes, he has seen the Wingman, EVA-8, and the Care Package changes.

These changes are leading ImperialHal to feel excited about Season 14, stating that “it seems like next season is like turning into, like, what I kind of wanted in Apex, where, like, everything is kind of broken.”

The main reason for this is because he feels that the devs are putting so many guns on the ground that are “OP,” putting all of the less favorable guns in the Replicator and Care Package.

Ultimately, this is something that ImperialHal is looking forward to, feeling as if it’s better to have strong weapons available on ground loot rather than nerfing everything.

We’ll have to wait and see just how spot-on this opinion is after Season 14’s release, but the new Laser Sight attachment may also contribute to a close-range meta.
