The game delivers a sufficient choice of weapons to the users. With 20 gun types in total, the developers did a good thing by including enough options to choose from into each category. This way, every player has a possibility to pick something that fits his preferences and skills.
While a wide selection of guns is always a good thing, it gets too easy to get lost in their range. Besides, it can get quite challenging to define, which gun of many can contribute to your playstyle and bring you the victory. To help you make the right choice, we have prepared a complete guide on all weapons available in Apex Legends with a brief overview on their capabilities, damage stats, available attachments, and other details you should know.
Before we look at the available guns, let’s first look at some unique features offered by developers. There are special attachments to improve the performance of every gun. These attachments, just like other loot, can be found anywhere on the map. In total, there are five categories of attachments:
In the game, each player can only have two weapons at a time, so it is essential to pick the best ones. Thanks to a wide range of options, you can find what suits your needs the most, and our guide should help you with this.
Unlike Devotion, Spitfire doesn’t churn out bullets as quickly. However, it is surprisingly accurate even from long distances and delivers high damage. Note that it takes a while to reload.
This is a beast LMG that allows you to take down several enemies with a single mag. It delivers high damage but has slow rate of fire in the beginning, so you’ll have to wait a bit until it “warms-up”. You can use it at different ranges.
By stats, R-301 is the weakest AR because of its light ammo. However, since it is a full-auto weapon with 18-round mag, it is still powerful enough to take down enemies from short distances. It is also quite accurate.
Hemlock Burst AR
Hemlock’s burst mode with a 3-round pattern make it a highly accurate and damaging weapon. If used right, it can win you some time by killing rivals faster than they can react. However, you have to be comfortable with a burst mode to use this gun to its full potential.
Thanks to its heavy ammo, VK-47 can boast decent damage. It has a 20-round mag and provides you with enough firepower to shred through opponent’s shield. It is perfect at medium and close ranges.
This is a small, light SMG that packs a real punch. For better results, use it at close range. However, you should bear in mind its high recoil.
Prowler Burst PDW
Prowler is a rapid-fire, heavy SMG that shows accuracy of a good AR. Thus, it is effective at all ranges. Thanks to its 5-round burst, it boasts significant damage.
R-99 can boast of a fast fire rate, but it can take almost the full mag to actually take your enemy down. You can make the best use of it when you are close to your enemy.
This is the weakest option in the category. However, it allows you to make shots quite fast.
Unlike G7, Longbow is much more effective. It uses heavy rounds and thus, causes more damage. It's only con is a 5-round mag.
It is a unique sniper. It fires three projectiles in a single horizontal line and causes decent damage with each shot.
Kraber .50-Cal Sniper
Being one of two legendary weapons in Apex Legends, Kraber doesn’t need any attachments to provide one of the highest damage stats in the game. It features variable 6x to 10x optic. Thus, it can be used from any distance.
Re-45 is one of the weakest pistols. However, it allows players to make more shots, which means it can win you some time in the beginning of the game.
It is a unique pistol that uses shotgun shells for ammo. It can cause decent damage, but you should use it at quite a short range. But if you are close to the target, you will easily take it down with Mozambique.
This is a classic pistol. It shows average results in terms of damage because it comes with light ammo. We recommend only using it at the very beginning of the game.
Wingman causes significant damage with every shot. It can be used at different ranges, but you will have to practice your accuracy to take your rivals down from afar. It’s a great option for a sidearm weapon.
This shotgun shows impressive damage results. It is also really simple in use, so if you see it on the map, be sure to grab it!
Second legendary weapon in the game is Mastiff. In a single shot you can make as much as 288 damage if you hit your enemy in the head.
It’s perfect for all levels of game. It doesn’t cause too much damage, but can kill an opponent without a single reload.
This is a full list of weapons that can be found in Apex Legends.
