The Peacekeeper is an anti-personnel lever-action energy shotgun, introduced in Apex Legends.

Gameplay

The quad-barrel shotgun operates much like a railgun, firing energy-augmented slugs with the spray pattern of a five-pronged star, providing immense close-range stopping power. This makes the weapon quite useful in the early and late game in contested landing zones or when combatants are forced into a tight space like corridors or buildings.

The Peacekeeper comes auto-equipped with the Precision Choke for the muzzle that, when aiming down the sights, charges the gun and narrows the spread of its shots for more concentrated fire, providing more functionality at mid-range. It also comes with a Shotgun bolt and a threat scope.

As with most any lever-action firearm, the lever must be actuated with every shot to chamber another round; a skilled user can provide a rate of fire similar to the semi-automatic Mastiff shotgun.

Attachments

As of Season 5, the Peacekeeper comes equipped with all of these
