The new season 11 of Apex Legends called “Escape” is almost upon us and we finally have some information regarding all the weapon-related buffs & nerfs that Respawn plans to bring with the new season.

Aside from new characters, weapons, revamped battle passes, and new maps, Respawn also brings balancing changes containing a plethora of buffs & nerfs at the start of a new season to shack things up. And it seems like for this new season, they made another change to the care package weapons.

In Apex Legends, there are three types of weapons that a player can use on the battlefield. One is the ground loot, which can be upgraded by adding more attachments to it. The second one is gold weapons that come equipped with all the high-level attachments.

And lastly, there are care packages only for weapons. These weapons are highlighted in bright red, and they are by far the most powerful weapons in the game. With season 11, Respawn decided it was time for the triple take to leave the care package slot. In its place, the G7 Scout will enter the care package with upgraded stats.

Also, the new C.A.R SMG seems really promising so far. The leaks indicate it will take both light and heavy ammo types. All of these changes may seriously shake up the current weapon meta in the game.

Apex Season 11 Escape Weapon Buffs & Nerfs

Supply Drop Rotation

This season, the Triple-Take returns to floor loot, and taking its place is the G7 Scout. The Scout enters the Supply Drop with its old friend, the Double-Tap Trigger, equipped.

Hop Ups

  • Dual Shell: Each round loaded into the Mastiff or the 30-30 Repeater is doubled.

Fully Kitted Rotation

  • Added: Mastiff 30-30 Repeater, R-301, CAR, Longbow

Dev Note

With the reduced bolt scaling we’ve done in previous passes the EVA-8 is still performing ahead of the shotgun pack. Hitting the base fire rate should help balance out our shotgun roster.

Dev Note

We’re walking back a recent buff to the Longbow that proved unnecessary. We wanted to give it some love due to all the recent Marksman updates but it seems the Longbow was just fine.
