What are the best guns in Apex Legends? Season 14 didn’t bring any radical shift—but brought back some old classics. The new tweaks and patches rebalanced the old patterns, and so some of the guns now have an entirely different place in the Apex Tier List of guns. In this article, we’ll explain the best guns tier list in Apex Legends and why the current weapons are on this list!
Bocek Bow, R-301, R-99, Kraber
Peacekeeper, Sentinel, Volt, CAR SMG,Spitfire
Rampage, G7 Scout, Re-45
The rest of Apex weapons can be placed below B-Tier, in our opinion… but of course many pro gamers decide to go it alone and can be brutally effective using Repeater or Charge Rifle!
Kraber - Care Package
This sniper rifle is one of the favorite weapons of the new character, Vantage, and in her hands it’s the best Apex gun around. It can instantly kill any Legend with a headshot—as long as you find it in an air drop, or kill the character who had it. Even if you don't kill an opponent outright, you'll probably scatter their shields. Characters are now extremely vulnerable to attack from your allies.
However, as is the case with sniper rifles in games, accuracy and long range are offset by low rate of fire and number of bullets. The secret to mastering this weapon is precision and experience. Good players can catch enemies quickly, preferably in combination with teammates. If you like playing snipers, it’s probably top in our Apex tier list… but otherwise, you might have problems!
Bocek Bow – Care Package
Bocek is an unusual weapon – you either love it or hate it. With Vantage arriving in Apex Legends Season 14, the best guns must rely heavily on good aim. It’s hard to practice with the bow, but it’s very accurate, fast and deals high damage. In Season 14 it has been updated with more damage and speed – but of course, being a bow it uses Mythic Arrows and can’t equip other ammo.
As befits a bow, it’s also almost completely silent – which can give you an extra shot or two when ambushing enemies… provided that they don’t ambush you when you finally get that Care Package!
Almost always, the ranking of the best weapons in Apex Legends has been dominated by this assault rifle. The R-301 Carbine is one of the more basic weapons that is always available in Apex games, and no wonder it dominates all the rankings. It is an amazing all-rounder with numerous shooting modes and good at both short and long range.
Mods like the Extended Light Mag and the Barrel Stabilizer have helped many players make it to the final circle with this Apex gun. Fortunately for many players, not much has changed in season 14 as far as the 301 is concerned – although many have announced a nerf.
C. A. R. SMG
In terms of weapons, Season 14 of Apex Legends has meant that the CAR SMG no longer has the option to add additions to the barrel and has become slightly less accurate. However it’s still one of the best Apex guns and it still packs a good punch. While it may be more difficult to hit the target, your bullets will still do a significant amount of damage with a perfect rate of fire.
The biggest advantage of the CAR SMG, however, is that you can switch between using light and heavy ammunition, so you'll never run out of bullets.
R-99 submachine gun
The R-99 may not be as powerful as the CAR, but it is much more common. It's easy to find in caches, and is much more deadly than a shotgun at close range. It can use an entire 20-round magazine in more than a second. But don't hesitate to pick up this Apex Gun. Often it's something you'll run into early on, and a strong shot can put an opponent with rudimentary shields out of the game.
Of course, the disadvantage of the R-99 is also that it gobbles up ammunition extremely quickly. However, if you can find an attachment with a large magazine, you will quickly defeat the enemy and take what they have found. And when you run out of cartridges, replace the R-99 with an EVA-8 or Volt shotgun - also some of the better guns on our Apex tier list!
