Have you ever wondered why the recoil on all guns feels a little “strange” in Apex Legends? And no weapon recoil like another. It is all because of the spray patterns that come with each weapon.

Each gun in Apex Legends contains a unique spray pattern, which requires players to compensate their aim and practice quite a lot to master the weapon, (similar to the PC first-person shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – CS:GO). Rifles, submachine guns, pistols, and shotguns in CS:GO all follow a patterned spread in which the bullets will follow every time the weapon is shot consecutively in rapid succession. And this logic is also applied to weapons in Apex Legends.

While many Apex Legends gamers have discovered this, no one can precisely point out all the spray patterns for guns in Apex Legends. But we don’t have to wait further to know that important knowledge. The official Reddit account of the game Apex Legends (run by Respawn Entertainment) has just posted the correct spray patterns for guns in the game on a Reddit post. (maybe this is why we love Respawn Entertainment)

Weapons that have a large magazine require you to pull in the opposite direction of the spray pattern. So if a spray pattern is up and to the right, like on the RE-45, for example, you must pull your mouse or aiming control stick down and to the left. It’s different for shotguns, though, since the pellets follow the same spray pattern for every bullet expended.

Normally this kind of feature will be discovered by gamers after a few months playing the game. But Respawn Entertainment head ahead of the curve by telling this feature through the official Reddit account of Apex Legends. This kind act by Respawn Entertainment certainly does a lot of help for gamers, especially pro gamers because the spray patterns can decide the overall damage output of your weapon. Hop into Apex Legends and practice all of the guns’ spray patterns when you pick them up so that you can out-aim the competition for some easy champion titles.
