Some gun skins provide players with unfair benefits. Respawn Company has been keeping a “cosmetics only” policy on its microtransactions since the company’s opening day. So if one decides to become a good player, you should try to improve your gaming skills – otherwise, if your goal is to look fancy during a game session, you will need to grind or purchase some skins. You can equip My Little Pony gun skin if you insist – but it would be some assistance since the unicorn horn can help you aim at your enemies. Sadly for players, this just happened in previous major game update.
The developer’s team announced a brand-new content, an Apex Legends gun, providing players with some unfair aim assistance against other gamers. But after getting reports from users, Respawn has announced that they would perform some arrangements in the gameplay.
“Honest competition was a key option for Apex,” posts EA on their webpage. Along these lines, our aim designs should encourage gamers to game using only the best scopes. Our team consider skins could impact the usability of the aim that asists in shooting process. In the fourth season, devs introduced Heat Sink for our VK-47 weapon but received comments where many users argued about Aim Down Sights looking better than in any existing weapons.
” To perform the gameplay as fair as it can be, we decided to consider user feedback about Heat Sink, as well as taking action on other gun content that should be upgraded or reworked.”
To illustrate this update, Respawn posted a few screenshots about the main updates that should be applied to the current skin. Flatline’s Revelations will be modified as well. “It seemed to us that the side fins affected a blind spot, which is why we resized it to increase visibility while the player uses ADS.”
The devs rest assured that not a single weapon aim, despite cosmetics, functions in such a way without providing any significant benefit over the aim of others. Company wishes you get better in-game by spending more time and learning game mechanics. “We hope that any critical difference in Apex experience may result from mastering skills, without some imaginary advantage like buying skins for weapons.”
