Was there an Apex Legends Devotion nerf? | Has the LMG been nerfed? (Season 6)

Apex Legends Devotion nerf

Yes. The Devotion LMG has been nerfed in Apex Legends Season 6. This is because the weapon was made more widely available than it was before, moving from supply drops only to also appearing as floor loot. Following the August 20 update (H/T: Reswpawn Entertainment on Trello), the Devotion LMG is less powerful than it was before and less likely to appear as floor loot. This is a quick turnaround considering the Season 6 update was on August 17, 2020.

The Apex Legends Devotion nerf is as follows:

  • Damage reduction: 17 to 16
  • Increase to recoil
  • Reduction of the number of Devotions spawned on the map

These are just a few adjustments to the weapon, which the development team plans to alter some more. As of writing, we don’t know what else is planned for Devotion. All we know is that more changes to the weapon are on the way, eventually.

For now, you’ll have to make do with a slightly less powerful Devotion LMG in Apex Legends. Time will tell if its nerf impacts the gun in a big way or not. At least there’s a Bangalore Heirloom and Caustic Heirloom on the way. It’s nice to have something to look forward to in the days of nerfs. Time to get the most out of the Devotion while you still can, we think.
