The P2020 is the heaviest gun in Apex Legends by some margin. Even at times when Hammerpoint Rounds was in the hopped-up loot pool, it felt like a chore to pick up a P2020, since you had to waste a full weapon slot on a gun that, until Unless you’ve got an epic- rarity hop-up to go with it.One of the worst feelings in Apex is dropping down to a couple other teammates looking to fight quickly, opening a loot bin, and only finding a P2020 (or several P2020s) inside. That’s why an off-hand comment from TSM’s ImperialHal gave many fans hope that a solution is coming for P2020 next season. But was Hal really giving his viewers a little leak for season 16 or was he just trolling them?

ImperialHal Says Apex Legend Most-Hated Gun Will Become a Staple in Drops :

If true, it wouldn’t be the first time Apex shook up the game by adding items that players generate automatically. At the beginning of season nine, Apex began equipping players with a level one Evo Shield, two Shield Cells, and two Syringes in the games. This may seem far-fetched to someone who has just started playing the game, but for most of the game’s life, players actually had to run around and shield their level when they fell. Used to search.

Spawning with the P2020 can take care of some of the problems with weapons in Apex as well. Taking a gun out of the loot pool and making it a spawn weapon frees up some room for new weapons to enter Apex, as already rumored for Season 16. The developers have often cited concerns about the loot pool and the weapon meta bloating with too many weapons and items, and thus removing guns opens the door for fewer concerns about too many weapons in the loot pool.

While dropping in with a P2020 and not having to worry about running into three of them while having an opponent drop right next to you on a Volt or R-301 can feel great, there are others in the community who Hal’s comment on his chat is thought by most to be a troll, and with good reason.

Some Reddit users correctly noted that it was a bit unusual for Hal to speak so candidly about an upcoming change for next season that hasn’t yet been publicly announced. The possibility exists that someone in Respawn could tell the player that certain things were okay to leak to their audience, but it doesn’t seem like a common occurrence.Others have pointed to a different, larger issue,Along with giving everyone a P2020 when they spawn for the first time: having huge trouble in hot drop situations.

It is not uncommon for teams to gain the upper hand over their opponents, with all three players landing on an enemy who has been separated from their squad. Usually, those players don’t worry about getting a gun and start trying to gun down their single enemy, which is usually fairly easy, even if that player gets a weapon. . Now imagine that strategy, but everyone has P2020s instead.But everyone has the P2020 instead. It’s a pea shooter, sure, but if three pea shooters are trained on one player, one player is going to lose their fight.

In theory, this could discourage players from hot-dropping more, encouraging teams to look for less-crowded drop spots — or, knowing the Apex player base as a result, this on an even larger scale. Hot drops and poor game pacing can result.The normal practice of identifying Predator dive trails during a game and teaming up with enemies to land on Predators and try to punch them out also becomes quick and brutally efficient with P2020s in everyone’s hands.

It’s unclear whether Hal is actually telling the truth here or just trying to liven up his chatter a bit. And the potential costs and benefits of such a move feel relatively even, all things considered.Apex players probably won’t know the final fate of P2020 until Season 16 actually launches in 2023.
