Apex Legends: Best Weapons Guide

A brand new Battle Royale game from the creators of Titanfall has just arrived on consoles and PC and the feeling is that it doesn't want to play the appearance part. Apex Legends joins the ranks of games such as PUBG, Fortnite, Overwatch and Call of Duty: Blackout, allowing players to select a wide range of playable heroes with unique abilities. Apex Legends features first-person shooter mechanics and graphics that are significantly more realistic than the more cartoonish Fortnite.



In a battle royale, however, what is most interesting is the gunplay and the fun it can bring. Just hours after the launch of Apex Legends, the selection of weapons is already remarkable. Choosing the best weapons to emerge victorious from EA's battle royale is not easy, so we decided to write a complete one for you.

Remember that Apex Legends is a free battle royale!

Apex Legends - Weapons

Apex Legends has a wide range of weapons, of different categories that you will have already dealt with if you are familiar with the FPS genre.

SMGs, sniper rifles, shotguns, pistols and more are your tools of destruction of your opponent. Choose the ones that come closest to your style of play.

To help you, we've put together a guide to Apex Legends' best weapons, reporting the individual statistics of each weapon, the pros and cons of their use and the slots that can be added. The guide will be updated as you go.

Weapons statistics may be subject to change by the development team through updates, so we will try to follow these updates to provide a guide that is always up to date.

Apex Legends - What are slots?

Every weapon, but some may not have one, has slots that can improve the yield of the weapon. Apex Legends weapon slots can affect the magazine - the amount of ammunition - the optics - for better sight yield - the barrel - for more firepower - the butt of the weapon - for less recoil and greater accuracy - and the hop-up - for better range.



In this guide we are going to see, for each weapon, what slots are available.

Apex Legends - Damage Statistics

Apex Legends' weapons damage statistics are divided into body and head.

Weapons take different life points depending on where the enemy is hit.

Every statistic can be improved, but the weapon burst is not infinite, it can go up to a max allowed.

  2. Mastiff Shotgun
  3. Wingman

Apex Legends - Guide to the best weapons

If you want to win every battle of Apex Legends, you have to choose the weapons that are right for you and the ones that give you better reliability on the battlefield. That's what they are.

Best Assault Rifles

Hemlock Burst AR

Eighteen rounds per magazine, but every time a round is fired, three more come out for increased damage. Manageable recoil thanks to the good balance between its weight and firepower.


The only drawback is that the accuracy isn't the best of all Apex Legends weapons, but if you can hit the target, it's hard to get up to tell.


Pros: Fire three shots simultaneously for triple the damage.

Cons: You have to be super precise otherwise you will be at a disadvantage.

R-301 Coals

With a total of 18 rounds per magazine, the R-301 carbine is fully automatic, possessing many qualities similar to a submachine gun. The damage done is not exceptional, but it is not always the power that makes the difference. This weapon has high accuracy and high rate of fire.


Pros: very accurate.

Cons: Limited damage due to the type of ammunition.

VK-47 Flatline

With a total of 20 rounds per magazine, the VK-47 Flatline features some of the highest damage statistics in its class. It has impressive statistics for both stability and range, making it one of the best Assault Rifles available.

The VK-47 Flatline is one of the most balanced weapons within Apex Legends.

Pros: balanced weapon with high stats in power, range and stability

Cons: none in particular

Best Light Machine Guns

Devotion LMG

With a total of 44 rounds per magazine, the Devotion LMG, a fully automatic weapon, presents a series of rather impressive statistics across the board. It's powerful and accurate, a real judgment.

However, despite the impressive statistics, the lack of stability of the Devotion LMG makes it quite difficult to use. For this reason, the M600 Spitfire still remains the best LMG in Apex Legends.

Pros: Increased damage if you repeatedly hit the target

Cons: Requires that you aim very precisely to achieve maximum yield

M600 Spitfire

With a total of 35 rounds per magazine, the fully automatic M600 Spitfire is probably one of the best weapons currently available in Apex Legends.

While the M600 Spitfire has a low rate of fire, it's its accuracy and ability to inflict damage that really put it above other weapons in the game. No wonder it's one of the most popular choices within the game.

Pros: high precision and pretty good damage.

Cons: none in particular

Best Guns

P2020

With a total of 10 rounds per magazine, the P2020 is a standard gun with rather average statistics.

The P2020 is not necessarily a bad weapon, there are definitely better options available in the category, however, if you can find a P2020 during the initial minutes, do not overlook it because it is a more than decent starting weapon.

Pros: Standard gun so you will find it often

Cons: Not really the most powerful

RE: 45 

With a total of 10 rounds per magazine, the RE-45 pistol is fully automatic and is one of the fastest firearms in its class.

Although the gun is characterized by an incredible speed of fire and excellent damage statistics, it is the recoil that makes it difficult to master.

Pros: Rapid fire that can potentially inflict high damage if used well.

Cons: Recoil control can be complicated.

Wingman

With a total of 6 rounds per magazine, the powerful Desert Eagle style revolver can cause significant damage to incoming enemies.

With an impressive impact of 90 points head damage, the Wingman revolver can quickly take down opponents in a few rounds. However, the low speed and low accuracy make the weapon difficult to master.

Those who choose the Wingman will still reap the benefits.

Pros: Damage that can shake the target by discovering it at other attacks.

Cons: Requires an excellent viewfinder to give the best.

Best Pump Rifles

EVA-8 Car

Despite being a shotgun, the EVA-8 Auto has a fairly high rate of fire, which makes it a real public hazard. Of course, to compensate, it doesn't have the same power as other shotguns.

Pros: Rapid fire... and for a shotgun, that's a lot of stuff.

Cons: Relatively low damage to compensate for rapid fire

Mastiff

A rare weapon and rightly so. Finding a Mastiff means you have a very good chance of winning. The firepower of this weapon is impressive: it can cause almost 300 points of damage with headshots.

It's not very fast, but a shotgun must be scary just by looking at it and away we make sure this Mastiff does a lot of it.

Pros: it causes exceptionally high damage.

Cons: You'll find very few of them around.

There are no slots for this weapon.

Body: 144

Mozambique

Is that a gun or a shotgun? Both. With a total of 3 bullets per magazine, the Mozambique Shotgun triple barrel gun is one of Apex Legends' exclusive weapons.

Mozambique's Shotgun hybrid is one of the most powerful guns in the game, as its accuracy and high damage capabilities make it a top weapon in its category. With such impressive stats across the board, Mozambique's rifle really does seem to thrive in close combat.

Pros: A hybrid: a little gun, a little shotgun. Really interesting as a weapon

Cons: Contains only three cartridges.

Pacekeeper

Shotgun less powerful than the Mastiff, but faster. Those who want a compromise between speed and power by choosing the Pacifier can easily make their way in both enclosed and wide spaces.

Its recoil could, however, put you to the test.

Pros: Good mix of power and fire rate.

Cons: recoil not very manageable

Best SMG

Prowler Burst PDW

With a total of 20 rounds per magazine, this SMG not only has an incredibly high rate of fire, but also the ability to inflict significant damage.

At the top of the SMG category, this P90-style SMG is an easy choice for the perfect weapon for a close range approach.

Pros: High damage potential thanks to its good fire rate.

Cons: None in particular

R-99

With a total of 18 projectiles per magazine, the R-99 automatic rapid-fire auto-99 is a standard SMG that shoots quickly but which you have to turn a blind eye to in terms of damage intensity.

Given the firing frequency of the R-99, this weapon is a great solution for hitting moving targets, in fact, its rate of fire allows you to not be very precise in aiming. A few bullets at the end on the bad guy's turn comes in.

Pros: Rapid fire that makes this weapon great for moving targets

Cons: Relatively low damage to balance its advantages.

Best Sniper Rifles

Longbow DMR

If you don't miss the first shot, you will do irreparable damage to the unfortunate on duty. For an infallible sniper, the Longbow is the perfect choice.

It can be upgraded with all types of slots.

Pros: Many attack options and causes a lot of damage on the first hit.

Cons: None in particular

Triple Take

Less precise than the Longbow DMR due to a higher oscillation, but the power is not discussed. The Triple Take fires a burst of three bullets that make it as deadly as a few other Apex Legends weapons.

Pros: triple the damage to destroy the enemy with a few shots.

Con: The accuracy is not maximum.

Kraber .50 CAL Sniper

The best sniper rifle you can find in Apex Legends. The only drawback is that there are no slots, but with its damage statistics what does it matter?

The damage it can inflict is immense, reaching 250 points of damage with headshots. The accuracy is also very high. With a Kraber in your hands, you will decide the fate of others' lives.

Pros: Immense damage per weapon
