The Peacekeeper has finally been nerfed in Apex Legends from the latest balance patch update on 11/22.
After many complaints from players saying that the Peacekeeper is OP, Respawn has finally nerfed the all powerful shotgun.
The weapon has garnered a lot of attention since release, as it’s picked up a lot of damage and scores easy claps- making the game unbalanced.
Players have been asking Respawn Entertainment to nerf the thing many times over. And now, on 11/22, the Peacekeeper finally got a damage reduction.
The balancing update has already gone live through a small hotfix. There’s no “update” needed. Players just log on and will find that the almighty shotgun has been nerfed. Peacekeeper is no more.
The update changed both the reload time from 1.1 seconds to 1.2 seconds. And the multiplier for headshots has been reduced from 1.5 to 1.25x. Other than that, the Peacekeeper’s range and damage remain the same.
