Changes to the loot pool in Apex Legends are made continuously each season, but there are also changes in season 8 : The chaos does not include the usual changes that accompanied previous seasons. In a moment we will look at the what and the why.
Here’s an impression of all the big changes in Heist that will take place with season 8: Pogrom.
New weapon: 30-30 repeater

The newest of these rifles is the 30-30. It’s the first new weapon since season six. A heavy single-shot assault rifle, similar to the G7 Scout in terms of play style. It’s also the first weapon because the guard loads the shots, but the loading method doesn’t cost you any resources.
That’s what it looks like: How to use the 30-30 repeater in Legends of the Top Season 8 : Mayhem
Packing care: No change
For the first time, a change of season is not accompanied by a change of treatment package. You heard me right. Prowler SMG, Peacemaker and Kraber remain in the care package, and nothing leaves the ground. The balance is very positive as Wall has seen a decline in supply. It remains to be seen whether this unchanged agreement is a one-off or a sign of permanent change.
Anvil return receiver
Fan favorite Hop-Up briefly returned in a full weapon for the time-limited Airdrop Escalation mode, but this is the first time since season 4 that an Anvil Receiver has been part of the loot. It increases the damage of the semi-auto, but consumes two shots per shot in single shot mode and reduces the rate of fire. The Hop-Up is a legendary trap and is compatible with the VK-47 Flatline and the R-301 Carbine.
Double cut-off suppressed
Say goodbye to the double-click trigger. It was compatible with the G7 Scout and the EVA-8 car. This is the first time he’s been taken off the raid list. Honestly, hop-up hasn’t really been viable in the meta for a while, and it’s never really been viable in a top-level game. He was perhaps the least useful in this game. Hammerpoint patterns are never used at lower levels, but can be used at higher levels.
The eighth season will be all about a brand new set of fully loaded weapons. This season’s sniper rifle is the Longbow DMR. The complete series of Mozambique returns, unfortunately, who, imagine finding a golden cannon, will only then realize it is Mozambique? No, I’m fine. Still, the other weapons in the rotation are excellent choices, even better than last season. We have an R-301 rifle, a Spitfire and a brand new 30-30 repeating rifle.
Four weapons will be updated with Season 8, including some major changes to the Spitfire and two weapons that will mix the SMG meta-gun. Well, let’s see.
- Spitfire [heavy, LMG]:
- The damage went from 18 to 19.
- Nerf ↓] Increase in recharge speed to 3.2 seconds (from 2.8 previously).
- Nerf ↓] Increasing the reload speed when not loading to 3.8 seconds (from 3.33 previously).
- Volt. Force, SMG]:
Damage reduced from 16 to 15.
- Dynamo [Light, SMG] :
The damage went from 15 to 16.
- EVA 8 Auto [Shotgun] :
Buff ↑] Firewall speed goes from 2.0 to 2.1.
This applies to all the major heists of season 8: Pogrom. Are you excited about the new predator tank?
