    Honestly not sure about the change to the spawn chances of the Wingman and the Peacekeeper - if they are still overpowered after the nerfs, all it would do is add more RNG to the mix since now you will have a few teams that have been lucky enough to loot them at the beginning, and then the rest running around with a 'bique. Previously, the chances of finding either were relatively high, but now it might just mask the problem with the Wingman for some reason being a revolver that can shoot up to 12 bullets (lemme just extend the mag on this six-bullet revolver real quick), and the Peacekeeper still being a sniper rifle of a shotgun at medium ranges. Then again, I am not a game designer, and the rest of the changes are looking good, so I'm fairly optimistic about the direction the game is heading in.

      Respawn wants a power curve to the weapons. The Wingman and Peacekeeper are still supposed to be among the most powerful weapons in the game even after the nerfs. Respawn has adjusted the spawn rate for both weapons to reflect that. BR games are all about RNG and "getting lucky" with loot.

    Doesn't look like there are any mentions of netcode fixes or changes which is disappointing. I recently switched back to PC gaming after years of playing on console and this is the only game I've had consistent connectivity issues with. It's possible its a client issue on my end but, like I mentioned, it's the only game I have issues with.

    Regardless, these look like legitimate changes and I like the direction this game is heading in. For someone who gets bored of of multiplayer games quickly, I've been playing this a lot. Say what you want about BR, but the movement and combat in Apex is stupid fun. If you have any interest in online shooters, I would give it a shot, it really feels like it puts game play before riding the BR craze. Plus it's free.

    Didn't know about that new LMG that was leaked. I'm very interested to see how its crazy TTK will be compensated for.
