Apex Legends fixes accidental "pay-to-win" gun skin
Setting sights on fair play!
Respawn has announced via their official Apex Legends blog that the “Heat-Sink” skin for the VK-47 Flatline rifle will be receiving fixes after players noticed it had improved iron-sights, a distinct advantage over other skins.
Respawn writes in the blog that they want Apex Legends to be an equal battlefield where players have to earn their wins instead of buying them.
“We believe that any competitive edge in Apex Legends should be gained by honing your skills and not due to any perceived advantages from buying gun skins.”

Respawn also announced that they are reducing the fins from the Flatline’s “Revelations” skin to improve on the weapons blind spots.
It’s good to know that Respawn hopes to keep the purchasable items for Apex Legends fair as well as fun.
