Apex Legends: Upcoming Update Nerfs Anvil Receiver; Makes G7 Scout and C.A.R SMG Craftable

Apex Legends Spellbound Collection Event launches next week and with it is an update that will bring amazing in-game changes, including the ability to craft the G7 Scout and C.A.R SMG.

The G7 Scout and C.A.R SMG are two popular weapons in Apex Legends. The former is a semi-automatic battle rifle that can be fitted with the Double Tap Trigger hop-up, granting it an alternative burst fire mode. The latter is a versatile submachine gun because it’s capable of using light and heavy ammo, which players can swap to at any time with a press of a button.

That said, both of these weapons will be available to craft once the upcoming patch for Apex Legends goes live.

While players can craft the G7 Scout and C.A.R SMG soon, there’s another notable change that players should know about: the nerfing of Anvil Receiver.

For those who don’t know, the Anvil Receiver is a hop-up that can be attached to the R-301 Carbine and VK-47 Flatline assault rifles. This increases the semi-auto damage of these weapons. However, a single shot uses two ammo instead of one, and the fire rate is reduced as well.

Anyway, the damage of the R301 and Flatline assault rifles with the Anvil Receiver attached is reduced to 32 and 39, respectively. Additionally, the limb damage multiplier is reduced from 0.9 to 0.75, which means that players should now be aiming for the head if they want to score a kill.
