Bring back the PK! The skill ceiling for the PK was much higher than that of the Mastiff. The mastiff is less powerful, yes, but it's a lot easier for just anybody to use and consistently land shots. But worst of all, now CQC fights are boring as hell, compared to the exhilaration of fighting someone PK on PK. And also, a lot of people spent money to get legendary skins for the Peacekeeper and now we can barely use it because it's not ground loot anymore, does that just not matter to respawn and EA? I know going forward, personally I'm going to be a lot more cautious spending money on Apex based on cosmetics, because who knows what'll be removed/rotated to care package next. This is such a sad change for the game as someone spends a lot of time on it.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You've never played with the PK before this season did you? It was a high risk high reward gun.You needed actual aim to use the weapon, weather that was ADS-ing or Hip firing,also lets not forget about the infamous 18dmg. And the Wingman is the only gun that still needs skill, now you want that gone too?!
eva8 with double tap is better than the mastiff imo, but ya - I called the mastiff being the noob-friendly PK as soon as I picked it up. More forgiving, wider spread, and it's easy to smack someone for an easy 65damage from 10m which makes it a force to be reckoned with.
I think the mastiff is actually really well balanced for a gun in that you can still out DPS it with many other guns - but it provides sustained DPS through a firefight and perhaps the best thing about it, is you can reload it partially, fire, and not lose your reload.
The PK will be missed, but I think it's good to shake up the meta once in a while. Having every single game come down to either a PK or r99 in the close-range slot gets a bit stale. Of course now, it's r99/mastiff (and a few renegade re45 users) but at least it's a change.

i felt the PK was easier honestly.
but i know where the feeling comes from, been saying it for several seasons i want it back.
the PK just feels so much better to use, the mastiff shoots slow and is just not satisfying to use.
and swapping out for the PK again could solve some 3rd party issues apex currently have.
fights are way to long now ( dont bother responding: ohh just get better ) simply doesnt work like that
To be honest, PK is balanced more, cause of the slow reload speed than the mastiff. That gun makes me think about leaving Apex. Feels like the guys who do the balancing have no clue what they are doing...
