Apex Legends pro Genburten claims Havoc is OP for PC players

Apex Legends pro player Noyan ‘Genburten’ Ozkose has explained why the Havoc is overpowered on PC but lackluster for console players.

Over the years, Respawn has added countless weapons to Apex Legends and every player has their favorite.

Whether it’s the easy-to-drive R-301 Carbine, the powerful burst damage of the CAR SMG, or the long-range lethal outcome of the Longbow, the Outlands is filled with an array of deadly weapons.

Sure, they’ll always be top picks in the meta, and the Havoc stood out as one of the best weapons in Season 14.

Despite this, pro player Genburten has shown a flaw with the Havoc that makes it unbalanced, as in his opinion it is OP on PC but disappointing on console.

The Havoc has one of the most difficult recoil patterns to control.

Genburten shows why controller limits the power of the Havoc

When it comes to recoil stability on the controller, there are very few players in the Apex community who can match Genburten.

However, on a recent stream, the talented player showed how difficult it is to control the Havoc’s recoil on the controller compared to PC.

Complaining that his “thumbs can’t handle the recoil,” Genburten concluded that the Havoc is simply “not a control rifle.”

It’s also clear that he finds it unfair that MnK players have such a huge advantage over the controller when it comes to the Havoc’s damage output: “You call this balanced?”

Since the Havoc is one of the most powerful weapons in the game, it will be interesting to see if Respawn makes any changes to the weapon to make it easier for controller players.

Anyway, the lethal energy AR is always a solid pick-up if you can handle the recoil, but if you’re a controller player it might be worth opting for a different weapon if you can deal more long-range damage want to create.
