The R-301 Carbine, an assault rifle.

Weapons are the primary method to deal damage to enemies. They include guns and grenades. In normal gameplay, players do not spawn with any weapons. Weapons and ammo can be picked up from the ground. Stronger weapons tend to be harder to find. Players can carry up to two guns at a time.

Weapons can be equipped with attachments found on the ground. Fully kitted weapons are Legendary weapons that spawn with all of their attachments.

Some weapons can be found in Care Packages. These are called supply drop weapons, they are Heirloom rarity, and they are intended to be the strongest weapons in the game.

Gun Statistics[edit | edit source]

Guns have different statistics, some of which can be modified by attachments such as barrel stabilizers, extended mags, etc. These stats are:

  • Head Damage
    • Damage amount when hitting the head. Headshots do the highest amount of damage. The damage received from headshots can be reduced by equipping Helmet.svg Helmets.
  • Body Damage
    • Damage amount when hitting the body (from the chest to the abdomen).
  • Legs Damage
    • Damage amount when hitting the legs. Leg shots do the lowest amount of damage. Leg shot damage is equal to the body shot damage for legends with Low Profile.png Low Profile.
Firing Modes

These are the different ways a gun can shoot. Some weapons have two modes that can be switched.

  • Auto Icon.svg Auto - the gun fires continuously as long as the trigger is held
  • Single-fire Icon.svg Single - the gun fires once per trigger pull
  • Burst Icon.svg Burst - the gun fires multiple times per trigger pull

The Prowler Burst PDW and Havoc Rifle get an additional fire mode using the Selectfire Receiver.svg Selectfire Receiver, while the EVA-8 Auto and G7 Scout can change to burst using the Double Tap Trigger.svg Double Tap Trigger.

Main article: Ammo

Each weapon has its ammo type which indicates which type of ammo it accepts. These ammo types have different rarities and quirks with some of them being bound to the weapon they spawned with.

Mag Size

The amount of bullets that may be fired before a reload is needed. These can be increased by using the respective extended mag for your ammo type:

The rate at which magazine capacity increases depends upon the extended mag's rarity and the weapon itself.

Weapon Sway

The idle motion of weapon's aim, but can be modified with a Weapon stock.


The first shot's accuracy (relative to the center of the screen), or the rate at which the weapon loses accuracy under continued fire.


The amount of physical recoil per shot that should be compensated for, this can be modified with a Barrel Stabilizer.svg Barrel Stabilizer. Some guns, like the VK-47 Flatline and the Prowler Burst PDW, don't support it.

Rounds Per Minute (RPM)

Frequency in which bullets of a certain gun are fired. The weapon with the lowest RPM in the game right now is the Charge Rifle, with the highest being the R-99. Currently, RPM can only be modified for all shotguns by using a Shotgun Bolt.svg Shotgun Bolt attachment.

RPM Acceleration

RPM Acceleration denotes the speed at which a weapon shifts from its slowest to the fastest rate of fire. Currently, such mechanics are utilized by the Devotion LMG.

Notice[edit | edit source]

  • "Sub machine gun" is an incorrect spelling of submachine gun. "Sub" is a prefix and therefore should be part of the word (e.g. "submarine"). This wiki is intentionally using the incorrect spelling because it is how SMG is being spelled in the game. Curiously, Respawn Entertainment spelled "submachine gun" correctly in the Titanfall games, but not in Apex Legends.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Wingman, the L-STAR, and the Sentinel can open doors by shooting the handle.
  • All weapons in the game are projectile weapons with bullet drop, except the Charge Rifle and the HAVOC Rifle's single fire. They shoot hitscan beams, and instead of bullet drop, they have damage falloff.
