Apex Legends Season 14 switches up ammo types for Wingman, Spitfire

Tired of getting picked off by the easily accessible Wingman? Hate having to fight your teammates for heavy ammo because everyone picked up a heavy gun? Season 14 has some surprises for you then — the Wingman and Spitfire are getting some serious changes.

The Wingman was well known for being an extremely easy-to-obtain murder machine — heavy ammo is plentiful, and the Wingman deals plenty of damage. In Season 14: Hunted, the Wingman is being swapped over to Sniper ammo, bringing with it smaller stacks in a players inventory. Sniper ammo is, by design, very rare — Sniper weapons are quite powerful, so limiting ammo is a good way to balance out their destructive power.

This means that Wingman users will have to be a little bit more careful with their shot placement if they want to succeed — and it also has the effect of freeing up the heavy ammo “economy” as it were.

The Spitfire is also moving ammo types for similar reasons: too many cooks in the heavy ammo kitchen. In Season 14, the Spitfire will use light ammo and attachments. Respawn noted that heavy ammo was getting spread too thin between the many different guns that required it, so shifting these two weapons around will lighten the load, allowing for more flexibility in groups.

This also helps to differentiate the Spitfire from the Rampage — as the Ramapge is also an LMG that used heavy ammo. To sum up, your three LMGs will be Spitfire on light ammo, Rampage on heavy ammo, and Devotion on energy ammo.
