The weapon meta for Apex Legends appears to be getting much spicier in Season 12.
As reported by Dot Esports on Tuesday, it appears the notoriously strong Hammerpoint Rounds Hop-Up will not only be returning with the launch of Apex Legends: Defiance for the Mozambique and P2020, but will also be usable on the RE-45 Auto as well.
Apex Legends Season 12 Will Feature RE-45 Hammerpoint Rounds Combo
After initially making its debut in Season 2 to ideally have players consider using "hopped-up small arms for weapon-swap tactics and sometimes carry them unironically into endgame situations," the Hammerpoint Rounds Hop-Up was removed in Season 9 after establishing itself as one of the strongest attachments in the game.
With the ability to increased unshielded damage to enemies, the Hammerpoint Rounds Hop-Up significantly improved the performance of the Mozambique and P2020 when equipped.
Now, with Season 12 within sight, it appears will be able to be used on the RE-45 Auto for the first time.
Considering the fact that the RE-45 is a commonly found fully-automatic pistol that has a fire rate similar to that of the R-99 SMG, many players are convinced that the Hammerpoint Rounds will make it unstoppable in Defiance.
