Bocek and Spitfire have already proven to be the strongest and most frustrating weapon out there Apex Legends Season 9. It’s not like Spitfire was broken last season or anything else …
Thank god Return The devs heard loud and clear that guns definitely need a bit of rework. According to Respawn’s head of Comms, Ryan Rigney, these people are arriving today. like today. Immediately.
Modification: The nerfs are now alive. Spitfire bullet damage has decreased to 18 from 19 and has a reduced mag size for the Purple Mags. Bocek body damage reduced from 70-60. Some positive changes!
We ship 2 separate updates to Embed a Tweet Today to address imbalances and balance some weapons.
Later today, these changes will be added to the old update patch notes at this link: https://t.co/X7ihMfTuHF

What is the problem with Spitfire and Bocek and why is everyone so upset about them? Well, the Bocek is a silent, fast-firing weapon with at least 70 damage per shot and seems to have spread perfectly by Respawn’s gameplay test.
I expect these initial interruptions to address problems of damage more than anything else. A greater weapon redesign may not be possible during the first week of the new season, although it would be great to see Bocek reimagine it with more bullets dropping, tiered tremors (like magazines for other weapons), and a more recognizable arrow trajectory. .
Using a weapon is very fun, and the fact of being clearly overpowered adds to that fun feeling, and I hope the power decrease doesn’t completely destroy the weapon. It’s hard to strike the right balance between viability and dominant force completely, although Respawn has shown that it can: The rest of the rifle meta in Season 9 is pretty impressive.
As for Spitfire? This weapon is an absolute danger. With a massive magazine, recoil changes barely noticeable since the start of Season 9, and enough damage per shot for a player to be able to wipe out an entire team before reloading, it’s clear something needs to be done about the weapon.
For those who have played Apex Season 0, the current Spitfire format brings back some painful memories. Despite the moderate pressure the gun was subjected to early in the season, it remains a dominant and frustrating weapon to play against. Why take any other weapon when your opponent has more bullets than you?
Added to the fact that Spitfire is available for purchase during the first round of the new Arenas mode and you have a weapon that feels oppressive in every corner of the game. Hopefully these contractions prove Respawn has actually listened to the online community (many professional players and streamers have been talking about the two guns) and will make some quick positive changes to the gun’s definition.
