All weapon changes in Apex Legends Season 14: Hunted

From an EVA-8 buff, to an Arc Star nerf.

Apex Legends hasn’t added a new weapon in a while, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t paying weapons any mind. Season 14: Hunted has introduced a plethora of weapon buffs, nerfs, and otherwise changes that will definitely change some players’ go-to guns (or bows). Let’s take a look at all of the weapon changes for Apex Legends Season 14: Hunted.
