Apex Legends Mozambique (Shotgun)
The Award for the LEAST effective weapon of the game goes to the Apex Legends Mozambique. First, you’ll probably wonder why this shotgun is so unique that it earns an award like that by itself; well, let’s dig a little bit more about its features. Due to its weird Spread Pattern (triangle shaped), low magazine size (3), and Fire Rate (2.2); you’ll be dancing a lot with your opponents and doing the least damage possible at close range. Above all, this shotgun is always welcome if it’s the first thing you see when you land in the arena, after all, it does more damage than trying to go “Rambo” and melee everything you see. Consequently, discard it when you find anything else, anything at all.
- Maximum Body Damage: 45 (66 Head Damage). Taking into consideration those numbers, you’ll probably think that it does decent damage. It seems that it still has some potential after all, but when you start shooting, you’ll know its shortcomings.
- Attachments: Shotgun Bolt, 1x Holo, 1x Digital Threat, 1x-2x Variable Holo, 1x HCOG Classic, 2x HCOG Bruiser, 3x HCOG Ranger. If you’re lucky enough to find a “Shotgun Bolt,” the increase in fire rate is always welcome. But, if you take a look at the other options you have to improve the effectiveness of this shotgun, you’ll probably notice it has no other way to make it better.
- Ammo Type: Shotgun Shells. Easy to find and store in your inventory, but it would be better if you use these shells on another weapon. As a result, if you see another Shotgun out there, do not hesitate, make the trade as soon as possible.
- Preferred Range: Short, Mid (With Mods). There are some options to improve its efficiency for the Mid-range, with one optic. Still, though, the damage may not be ideal at all for any encounter.
The stats that the Apex Mozambique contains are practically brutal. Most noteworthy, it seems like the development team wanted to make the least favorable features of all the weapons into one to produce this shotgun. As a result, not even with the aid of some attachments, you’re able to rescue its performance in the late-game. Avoid at all cost.
