Apex Legends Peacekeeper overview
The Peacekeeper is an extremely powerful close-quarters shotgun, even after its Season 9 nerf. It's a strong contender for the best shotgun in Apex Legends right now, thanks to its high damage, and its ability to greatly tighten the spread of your next shot after aiming down sights for a short while. It's easier to use than the Mastiff, and more damaging than the EVA-8 or the Mozambique. A very popular choice for Season 9.
