All nerfs to the Rampage LMG upon its return to Apex Legends

The Rampage is back but with a little less firepower.

A new hot fix went live today in Apex Legends that fixed the infinite charge exploit for the Rampage and Sentinel weapons and removed the crash error for the Mil-Spec Legendary Bangalore skin. As the in-game playlist was updated, the Rampage and Sentinel weapons were re-enabled for all playlists, as they had formerly been disabled due to the glitch. With the return, the Sentinel remained untouched, but the Rampage returned to the game with a substantial nerf.

All nerfs to the Rampage LMG

The Rampage LMG had many players complaining about its strength. Because of this, the developers nerfed the weapon on multiple accounts upon its return to Apex Legends:

  • [Nerf ↓] Damage per bullet now 26 (formerly 28)
    • This makes leg damage 22 and headshots 39
  • [Nerf ↓] Thermite consumption per shot has been increased
    • Players will have the revved up rapid-fire boost for fewer shots in battle, but it will stay revved up for the same amount of time out of battle with this change

If this nerf is too brutal for the weapon, we could see a slight buff in the near future. If it is not enough, it may get nerfed again. That said, either of these probably wouldn't occur before the new season begins in February.
