In his latest video, NICKMERCS explains the importance of long-ranged weapons in Apex, especially for Ranked Leagues. In Apex Legends, players can gain a better shield through doing damage, meaning no matter what level of shield you have, you can always increase it.

Ultimately, for Ranked Leagues, this is extremely important, as it could be the only way you and your team can get a better shield. The best way to do damage to level up your shield is to have a long-ranged weapon like a sniper.

NICKMERCS reveals his favorite Apex Legends sniper

NICKMERCS believes the Longbow is the best sniper in Apex Legends Season 10 to consistently increase your shields by dishing out damage, showing off some gameplay of him doing just this to an effective degree with his teammates.

The Longbow got a buff in Season 9, making it a great choice for those who enjoy using snipers. Although it did lose the Skullpiercer Hop-Up, the weapon has been balanced to be strong without it.

The Longbow’s fire rate separates it from the Sentinel, a much slower and more difficult weapon to use. Players will need to charge it up with Shield Cells to get the most out of the Sentinel, which can be quite frustrating.

The Longbow is great on its own and only really needs a good sight on it, like a 3x and a 2x-4x to make it most effective. Give the Longbow a try if you’re trying to level up your game in Ranked Leagues, as it could be what you and your team need to gain a better shield and survive.
