This weapon guide will divide and list down all the available weapons into categories. If you are only interested in some specific types of Apex Legends Mobile guns, use the table below to jump to the required section. Now without further ado, let’s begin.

Assault Rifles

R-301 Carbine

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

While all the assault rifles in Apex Legends mobile are amazing, the R-301 Carbine is by far our favorite gun in the game. While the weapon does feature a low damage ratio, it makes up for that with its accurate positioning, a high rate of fire, and a recoil pattern that mobile gamers can control. Long been a choice for Apex Legends PC gamers to start their journey with, the R-301 assault rifle is a solid gun in the game.

Flatline

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Flatline represents a design aesthetic that may be a bit older but is amazing to hold and fire. This gun in Apex Legends Mobile amps up the damage from the R-301 but slows down the fire rate. The mag size of 24 is just enough to squeeze off those precious shots to take down your targets. Perfect for mid-range to close combat, the Flatline is a great assault rifle worth a try. Do use it in hip-fire if up close though.

Havoc Rifle

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Havoc is an auto-fire spin-up assault rifle in Apex Legends Mobile that consistently gives good damage to performance ratio. While the weapon does take a split second to charge up and start firing, you can use the Turbocharger hop-up to cut down on that delay. Besides a handy reload animation, the Havoc rifle in Apex Legends boasts a good damage rate coupled with a decent rate of fire.

Hemlok Burst AR

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

While burst fire guns are not really my cup of tea, the Hemlok burst AR in Apex Legends Mobile is something players with good aim should pick up. This handy gun can switch between single-shot and burst fire and has a predictable (and easy to control) recoil pattern. So, coupled with an increased damage and a good rate of fire, the Hemlok will serve you well in medium-range fights. However, don’t take this gun close up if you want to live to see another day in the Outlands.

Firing ModeSingle shot/ Burst

Submachine Guns (SMGs)

Prowler Burst PDW

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Prowler Burst PDW is an excellent submachine gun in Apex Legends mobile, and you should definitely pick it up to hose down enemies in close-range combat, thanks to aim assist. This powerful SMG has a high rate of fire, along with an auto/ burst mode, thereby making it perfect for close contact engagements.

The recoil pattern itself is controllable and places more emphasis on the lower body of the legend. While the damage is slightly on the lower side, the Prowler can be combined with the Selectfire Receiver hop-up to give it an additional auto-firing mode for more mobility.

Firing ModeBurst/ Auto

Volt SMG (Care Package)

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Perhaps one of the only guns that can stand effectively against the R-301, the Volt is an energy submachine gun that features modest damage with a lot of precision, especially when hip-firing. This high fire SMG uses energy ammo and is thereby deadly to other legends in close range. The recoil is also comparably low and controllable at the start, allowing you to output decent damage to start a fight. Players starting out with Apex Legends Mobile should try out this SMG, but it might be difficult to get your hands on one as it is only available via the care package drop.

Firing ModeAuto

R-99 SMG

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Long been considered to be the best overall close-range gun by many Apex players, the R-99 SMG has no mercy in the mobile port as well. Packing an extremely high firing rate that all but shreds enemies at close range, the R-99 is a gun you must try out. However, the high fire rate also has its downsides as this weapon has high horizontal recoil, and it could be a little difficult to control on a small touchscreen. Besides not being easy to control, the R-99 is a gun best kept with pros and as a secondary weapon.

Alternator SMG

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Alternator SMG is not our first or second choice when it comes to quality guns in Apex Legends Mobile. However, if you find yourself in a tight spot with nothing else, this SMG with a decent fire rate should tide you over for a while. This small form factor gun packs decent stats (and there’s no Disruptor Rounds hop-up in the mobile port, which is a blessing) but suffers from an inconsistent recoil pattern. Go for the Alternator SMG as a last resort if you are a pro mobile gamer. This gun will prove to be likable among newbies.

Damage NumbersHead: 24

Level 1 Mag: 25
Level 2 Mag: 29
Level 3 Mag: 32

Light Machine Guns (LMGs)

Spitfire (Care Package)

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Did you expect anything else? The Spitfire has consistently been the top-rated LMG by Apex Legends players across all platforms until last season. This light machine gun in Apex Legends Mobile sports a massive magazine size coupled with a good rate of fire. As such, this makes Spitfire the perfect weapon for wiping out entire squads in one magazine if you are lucky enough. The Spitfire’s recoil is also pretty decent, thereby making this LMG perfect for beginners. For a competition to Apex PC’s Rampage, look no further.

Damage NumbersHead: 34

Level 1 Mag: 45

Devotion LMG

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Remember the Havoc rifle? Consider the Devotion LMG to be the bigger-badder version of the Havoc in Apex Legends Mobile. Charging up just like Havoc, the Devotion LMG is an energy-based weapon and takes a split second to start firing. But when it does, it destroys and even the base mag is enough to take down an enemy or two – just like Spitfire.

While that initial charge can get you killed, the Turbocharger hop-up in Apex Legends Mobile will solve your problems. So, rely on the Devotion gun in Apex for an LMG that has a high rate of fire and a sizeable mag box.

Damage NumbersHead: 28

L-Star EMG

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Oh yeah, there’s another powerful energy ammo-based LMG weapon in Apex Legends Mobile. Meet the L-Star EMG, a deadly gun that’s capable of heavy damage but has some drawbacks. For starters, this energy LMG has an erratic recoil pattern that shifts from left to right intermittently. That can be managed with some practice and control.

Moreover, compared to the beta tests, you can now attach the extended energy mags to the L-Star. And just like the PC and console game, the L-Star now supports a barrel stabilizer as well.

Damage NumbersHead: 32

Shotguns

Peacekeeper

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Peacekeeper is one of those guns in Apex Legends Mobile that you don’t want to be on the other end of. Packing the highest damage ratio per shotgun shell in the game, the Peacekeeper is an intricately designed piece of hardware. Since this is a rare care package weapon in the mobile port, it comes with all of the necessary attachments. It is a powerful shotgun that can eviscerate other legends in two pumps if used precisely. However, the slow reload time can prove to be disastrous if you’re not careful with your shots. So use it wisely.

Damage NumbersHead: 143
Body: 110
Leg: 88
Magazine Size7
Ammo TypeShotgun
Rate of Fire48 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range179 meters
Firing ModeSingle

EVA-8 Auto

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

If the thought of using the Peacekeeper scares you, the EVA-8 shotgun can be your best friend. This automatic shotgun hosts a drum magazine that can carry 10 rounds in its magazine. While a bit on the lower side in terms of power compared to the Keeper, the EVA-8 Auto makes up for that with its easy-to-learn recoil, full auto rate, and added mobility. Want even more damage output and lower TTK (time to kill)? Equip the Double Tap Trigger hop-up on this shotgun and fire two shots per trigger.

Damage NumbersHead: 71
Body: 54
Leg: 54
Magazine Size10
Ammo TypeShotgun
Rate of Fire120 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range179 meters
Firing ModeSingle/ Auto

Mastiff Shotgun

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Mastiff has remained a solid gun choice for Apex Legends players before it was pulled out of the care package and nerfed on the PC and console platform. While a tad lower in damage compared to the Peacekeeper, the mobile Mastiff is a treat to use. Having almost little to no recoil, you can use this shotgun with ADS on and off without worries. However, we suggest ADSing to tighten the bullet spread to hit more pellets with each shotgun shell.

Couple that knowledge with its high damage output, and it becomes a dream weapon for close quarters in Apex Legends Mobile. However, the time the weapon takes between shots is annoying, with the reload time being decent. Give this shotgun a subjective try, and let us know what you think.

Damage NumbersHead: 136
Body: 104
Leg: 104
Magazine Size8
Ammo TypeShotgun
Rate of Fire60 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range128 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Mozambique

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Like the Alternator, Mozambique remains a gun Apex Legends Mobile players should reach for when they have few options. This compact shotgun has a small magazine size, meaning you can run out of shots pretty quickly. The DPS ratio is also average, so you can’t rely on this gun to always kill. When you have no other options left, go for this weapon, else peruse the other options above.

Damage NumbersHead: 59
Body: 45
Leg: 42
Magazine Size7
Ammo TypeShotgun
Rate of Fire132 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range103 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Sniper Rifles

Kraber (Care Package)

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Every Apex Legends player’s dream, the Kraber is perhaps the best and rarest weapon in the mobile game too. This bolt action sniper rifle packs a massive 145 DPS ratio and is heavyset to carry. But you will forget that long barrel when you see this beast in action. The Kraber can instantly knock down any enemy with a proper headset. Even body shots are enough to cause serious damage. However, the low mag size and long reload times mean you always need to carry powerful secondary guns for backup in Apex Legends Mobile.

Damage NumbersHead: 435
Body: 145
Leg: 116
Magazine Size5 (non-refillable, 20 rounds)
Ammo TypeSniper
Rate of Fire30 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range980 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Longbow DMR

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Longbow DMR is a good mix of a sniper and a rapid fire weapon that can go the distance. This handy weapon in Apex Legends Mobile packs a decent-sized magazine and is the recipe for bullying enemies. While the damage is nowhere near close to the Kraber, the Longbow makes it up by its host of optic attachment options and a higher rate of fire. You can even pick up the Skullpiercer Rifling hop-up and increase headshot damage for this gun.

Damage NumbersHead: 110
Body: 55
Leg: 44
Magazine SizeBase Mag: 8
Level 1 Mag: 10
Level 2 Mag: 12
Level 3 Mag: 14
Ammo TypeSniper
Rate of Fire78 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range915 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Sentinel

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The Sentinel is yet another bolt-action sniper rifle that stands somewhere between the Kraber and Longbow. The Sentinel halves the damage compared to Kraber, so naturally won’t be powerful enough for one hit downs. However, players do get a faster travel time between shots and can squeeze more out while holding out enemies. Beginners getting started with guns should remember that since the Sentinel is a bolt-action weapon in Apex Legends Mobile, it can punish you for inaccuracy. So yeah, gamers confident with their aim should go ahead and check this gun out.

Damage NumbersHead: 140
Body: 70
Leg: 63
Magazine SizeBase Mag: 6
Level 1 Mag: 7
Level 2 Mag: 8
Level 3 Mag: 9
Ammo TypeSniper
Rate of Fire36 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range915 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Charge Rifle

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

A rather unique gun in Apex Legends Mobile, the Charge Rifle is a laser-based gun that fires a sharp beam. Since the gun is not reliant on bullets, there is no bullet drop. So no matter what distance you fire from, it will hit the target provided it’s done correctly. However, there is a laser trail that gives your position away.

Players using the Charge Rifle get 10 bullets per mag, which actually equals five laser beams. It eats up two sniper bullets per beam. While not the best weapon when trying to remain stealthy, the Charge Rifle is a reliable sniper when trying to take down legends.

Damage NumbersHead: 117
Body: 90
Leg: 90
Magazine Size10
Ammo TypeSniper
Rate of Fire1824 RPM (rounds per minute)
Effective Range918 meters
Firing ModeSingle

Marksman Rifle

G7 Scout

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

Made for Apex Legends Mobile players who want something between a sniper rifle and an assault one, the G7 Scout is a solid and steady gun. This single-shot rifle packs a solid 34 DPS with a high weapon range. However, the slow rate of fire and limited speed make this a weapon for long to mid-range shots. Built for Apex players with a good aim, the G7 Scout is not a rifle to be handled by newbies.

Damage NumbersHead: 60

Triple Take

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

This railgun-type sniper rifle is another fine addition to the ranks of some of the best and most annoying guns in Apex Legends Mobile. The Triple Take packs more damage than the Longbow, and hence, is more powerful when taking headshots (in charged mode). However, do be aware that you lose some mag capacity in the process. While the Triple Take was previously a sniper (in the PC version as well), it has now moved to the marksman category. That means it now uses energy ammo instead of sniper ammo, and you cannot use any long-range sniper scopes with it

Damage NumbersHead: 121

(Repeater) 30-30

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The newest addition to the Apex Legends Mobile weapons pool comes in the form of the 30-30 lever-action repeating rifle. The 30-30 may seem lackluster at first sight, but the unique charging mechanism when you aim down sight makes it super powerful in medium- and long-range engagements.

Pistols

Wingman

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

This high-powered revolver is the best pistol in Apex Legends Mobile right now. Definitely the most powerful pistol in the game, Wingman churns out six bullets through its revolver mechanism. Reloading is faster than one would expect with the entire 8-bullet magazine being replaced.

The recoil pattern does push the gun to the top left when firing. Moreover, players can use the Skullpiercer Rifling hop-up for increased headshot damage. The Wingman is one of the guns that even new Apex legends Mobile players can use. Perfecting the aim and connecting shot, however? Now that’s another matter altogether.

RE-45 Auto

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The RE-45 Auto is made for Apex players who cannot be bothered with semi-automatic weapons. Sporting a full auto shooting mechanism, this gun fires a total of 22 bullets in mere seconds. While that is amazing for quick shooting, the downsides are low damage and a recoil pattern that can be difficult to control by beginners. If you’re still convinced that RE-45 is the gun for you, equip the Quickdraw Holster hop-up and get shooting.

P2020

Apex Legends Mobile Gun Guide: All the Weapons You Can Use Right Now

The P2020 is a weapon not really liked by Apex Legends Mobile players, and we can see why. This semi-automatic pistol has stats that are average at best. It is easily outclassed by similar auto guns and is another gun you should only pick up at the start of the match and drop it as soon as you find an R99 or R-301. If you’re a gamer who wants a decent fallback gun in Apex Legends mobile, go for this one.
