With Apex Legends storming onto the stage and claiming the hearts of many, now it’s time to figure out exactly which weapon(s) you should be using to earn your place as champion.

There are five categories of weapons; Submachine Guns, Pistols, Sniper Rifles, Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns, and Shotguns. Each has its use and can viable depending on location, proximity, and attachments – however – viable doesn’t mean optimal.

Things to note before checking out the details of each weapon:

  • The maximum HP for any character is 200 – 100.
  • Add 25 more health for each level of shield (up to four, for Purple/Gold shields).
  • The Wingman is nuts.
  • Attachments can alter a weapon’s worth
