Since Michael Grzesiek is one of the best players in Apex Legends in the world, it's probably worth listening to when talking about what kind of weapons he prefers to use.
Weapons are one of the main pillars of Apex Legends. Therefore, it is important for any player who wants to master the game to familiarize themselves with the specifics of each weapon.
Shroud, one of the top apex players in the world, knows a thing or two about weapons and has broken which weapons he prefers and why.
According to the former CS: GO Pro, the best weapons are those that allow the player to move freely side by side while aiming for sight and shooting.
"The best weapons are the most mobile weapons," he said. "That's why the Wingman and the R-99 are really good."
According to the Woolen Mantle, the Wingman is so effective because it provides players with mobility in use.
This idea he faced the Spitfire, which is considered one of the strongest weapons in the game.
Despite their potency, lack of mobility means it's simply not suitable for the shrouds.
"Spitfire is great, but you stand against anyone who's half decent, that Spitfire is terrible." he said. "You literally have to stand still, there are no side brawls, you can not turn your back on the Spitfire, you're a damn sitting duck and you just die, it's just a heavy weapon."

It is important to know that Respawn Entertainment, after Shroud made those comments, finally captured the Wingman found his balancing update on March 6 ].
The firing rate was reduced from 3.1 to 2.6, while the damage multiplier of the skull pestle was reduced from 2.5 to 2.25. Base hipfire propagation has been increased while the rate at which hip-fire propagation decreases.
Of course, Shroud shared his thoughts about the changes, and after calling her first. "not the right nerf", he later changed his mind and estimated that the effectiveness of the weapon had been noticeably reduced.
Despite the changes, however, the Wingman still seems to be one of the stronger weapons the game and its combination with the R-99 could still be the target for many of the top players.
