Apex Legends 101: The Ultimate Peacekeeper guide
Apex Legends is one of the hottest Battle Royale in the gaming industry today and today we bring you guide to the one of most favourite gun – The Peacekeeper.
The peacekeeper is a lever action shotgun that uses shotgun ammo. It holds up to 6 bullets in a mag. It doesn’t come with an extended mag so it’s not possible to carry more than 6 bullets in the mag.
The peacekeeper being a shotgun comes in the close range category. The weapon deals a 110 damage on average when fired point blank and deals 165 headshot damage. The damage although varies a lot as the damage dealt is calculated by the number of pellets hit on target.
Peacekeeper takes 3 attachements – A shotgun bolt, an optic and the precision choke hop-up. The shotgun bolt increases the rate of fire for the weapon. The shotgun bolt comes in 3 different levels. Level 1 bolt increases fire rate by 7.5%, Level 2 increases fire rate by 13%, Level 3 increases fire rate by 16%.
The peacekeeper is one of the few weapons in the game which has a very accurate hip fire and aiming down sights doesn’t affect the spread of the weapon. The precision choke hop-up although charges the weapon and chokes the spread of the weapon when aiming down sights.
Using the weapon is fairly easy. The main problem with this weapon is that you need to get close to your enemy to be able to use the weapon to its full potential. Although, using the precision choke, the peacekeeper can also be used as a mid-range weapon.
To be able to extract most using the weapon, you need to learn Bunny hopping as it will enable you to keep your momentum while aiming down sights. If you aren’t using the hop-up, you should always hip-fire the weapon as it allows you to keep your momentum and your speed while dealing the same damage and with same accuracy.
The peacekeeper in the past has been in talks as the weapon damage is highly variable. This even caught the eyes of many popular streamers who also were surprised with the damage being so irratic.
Dr Disrespect is one such streamer who has raged at the devs to fix the damage on the weapon at multiple occasions on his stream. He recently also lost his temper after Season 3 started. You can watch the clip here.
