Every new season of Apex Legends comes with a host of changes meant to shake up the meta, from Legend tweaks to weapons getting shuffled around the availability pool. Season 14: Hunted is no different, but the new Legend, Vantage, isn’t the only change coming around — the Skullpiercer, Volt and G7 Scout are back, baby.
If you’re not familiar with the Skullpiercer, it is a rifling hop-up that was removed back in Season 9. The Skullpiercer increased either the Wingman or the Longbow’s headshot multiplier — Wingman from 2.0x to 2.25x and Longbow from 2.0x to 2.5x. In Season 14, however, the Skullpiercer will also work with the 30-30 Repeater as well, so if you’re looking for some extra pain, look no further.
But maybe you don’t like any of those weapons, and still want to pick people off at a distance. That’s fine, because the G7 Scout returns, giving you a light ammo rifle with a double-tap option. This is floor loot, so don’t expect anything game-breaking, but it’s a solid choice.
The energy SMG Volt is also making a return to floor loot, and when paired with the new laser sight attachment, you can definitely get a little more mileage out of this often overlooked weapon.
If you’re curious about what’s actually going inside crates this season, you’ll be glad to know that the Bocek Compound Bow and Rampage are making their way back in there. We don’t have specifics yet, but these will be powered up in some way to make hunting one down worth your while.
