Season 5 of Apex Legends has officially arrived in the world of the Battle Royale game. Respawn Entertainment has implemented a variety of significant changes to the title with the arrival of Season 5. One of the most significant changes focuses on the Peacekeeper shotgun and how players can acquire this weapon in the game now. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know when it comes to how players can get their hands on the Peacekeeper in the next chapter of Apex Legends. 

Where is the Peacekeeper in Apex Legends Season 5?

Players will find when they jump into the newest version of the Battle Royale title that the Peacekeeper shotgun can no longer be found as a piece of regular loot in the environment like it has been available since the game was first released. Those looking to have this shotgun in their inventory will only be able to by getting it through a care package. This change that now sees the Peacekeeper be a care package weapon in Apex Legends means that the Mastiff shotgun, which had been a care package weapon, can now be found in the environment as a regular piece of loot.

This switching of the two shotguns when it comes to where they can be found when playing means that the Mastiff received some nerfs, while the Peacekeeper received some buffs that players can take advantage of when they are using the new care package weapon in Apex Legends Season 5. 

You can find all of the changes for the game's new care package shotgun below:

  • "Tightened pellet spread pattern.
  • Reduced rechamber time from 1.2 to 0.9.
  • Reduced reload times from 2.65 to 2.45 base and 3.6 to 3.35 empty.
  • Increased projectile size to improve consistency at close range."

There is no doubt that plenty of players will be sad to see that they will have a tougher time finding a Peacekeeper when they are playing in Season 5. However, there are sure to be players who are happy to see that they will not have to face off against this shotgun as much as they have had to in the past.
