A recent Apex Legends leak has seemingly revealed that the Wingman and C.A.R SMG will soon be leaving the floor loot pool and heading into the Replicator crafting rotation in Season 14.

At the start of Apex Legends: Saviors, the VK-47 Flatline and Longbow DMR notably were relieved of their duties in Replicator jail and exchanged for the Rampage LMG and R-301 Carbine. In the first month of Season 13, some players have voiced their displeasure with the current loot pool, going as far as to mention that "all the most fun and favorited guns get taken away except the Wingman."

Thanks to this apparent leak by @ezra_rc on Twitter, however, it appears the Wingman will indeed be taking a bit of a step back next season.

Which Weapons Will Be in the Replicator for Apex Legends Season 14?

Looking at the supposed leaked image, there are six items displayed in what can be assumed to be the Season 14 Replicator crafting rotation. The image shows both the Wingman and CAR as craftable weapons, as well as the Digital Threat optic.

At the time of publication, there's no information on whether either weapon will be nerfed along with the change, but it's clear that they're both pretty well-regarded as is.

With the CAR, it's no secret the gun has become the best SMG in the game and one of the best choices to have on hand in every phase of a match. Based on a recent comment made by a Respawn live balance designer, it appears the devs are aware of it as well.

Ultimately, as with all leaks and rumors, take this information with a grain of salt until it's officially announced by Respawn.
