Throughout the majority of Apex Legends' life span, energy weapons have often been overlooked. Most view them as worse than the other weapon groups. And the L-Star has gotten the most neglect out of all the energy weapons.
The L-Star is a fully automatic energy machine rifle that has surprisingly good range. At a close distance, the rate of fire is sure to melt any nearby enemy.
Recently, Apex YouTuber Also Gaming Merchant revealed a "secret" about the L-Star that may just make it one of the game's best long-range weapons.
Along with this secret, the L-Star also saw a Season 14 buff. The buff increased the weapon's projectile speed. Meaning the energy balls shoot out much faster and further than they did before.
Now for the secret. The L-Stars bullets actually grow the more they travel. Enemies at a longer distance become much easier to hit as the bullet actually gets bigger.
Combining the bullet speed buff, the bullets getting bigger, and the fact that the L-Star has almost no bullet drop-off makes this weapon great at long distances.
Most people typically assume that with its high fire rate the L-Star would be better at close range, but not anymore. Don't be surprised if you start seeing the L-Star used much more often.
