Apex Legends Season 10 brings a bunch of changes to not just the Legends but also the weapons. Let’s take a look at the weapon buffs and nerfs this season and how they could impact the meta.

Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence is not only bringing Seer into the game, a new Recon Legend but also a host of other changes in the patch notes.

Although not everything was mentioned in the blog by EA, as it seems Octane will also be getting a slight change that wasn’t mentioned, most of the changes coming to weapons are confirmed, so let’s take a look at them.
