10 Best Apex Legends Mobile Guns

Our Apex Legends Mobile Best Guns guide entails some of the best weapons in the mobile game you should use and dominate the encounters.

We’ve curated a list of the top Apex Legends mobile guns that are accurate, have little to no recoil, have decent mag size, and have excellent DPS. So, if you see any of these weapons in the game, make sure you drop the existing loadout and equip the ones we have listed in our guide.

Key Highlights
  • While using good legends is important, guns have a significant impact on your performance in Apex Legends. Some of the Best Guns in Apex Legends are:
    • R-301 Carbine Assault Rifle: This is the best Assault Rifle in the game, just like the PC version. It has a fast firing rate and clear vision in its ADS.
    • Volt SMG: Like the R-301, Volt SMG is the best SMG available to players in the game’s mobile version, thanks to its low recoil.
    • M600 Spitfire LMG: As the list of best guns continues, This is the best LMG you can choose in the game. Only a few people like to use LMGs due to their high fire rate; others avoid the recoil they bring alongside.
    • Kraber .50-Cal Sniper: As you expected, the Kraber outperforms any other gun in this category.
    • EVA-8 Auto Shotgun:  Thanks to the bullet spread of this gun, it serves as a great secondary alongside an SMG or Assault for short-range damage.
    • VK-47 Flatline Assault Rifle: Flatline has a larger magazine, a slower fire rate (for longer ranges), and higher base damage, making it the second-best assault rifle in the game.
    • Triple Take Marksman Rifle: Thanks to the TTM Rifle, it can shoot long ranges and has a greater magazine than the Kraber. This makes it the best choice for long ranges and a secondary weapon alongside the Eva-8 shotgun.
    • Mastiff Shotgun: Due to the low damage rate of Eva-8, many people want something with higher damage even if it compromises the fire rate, especially those with good aim.
    • Alternator SMG: The alternator has great aim assist, which makes it the second-best gun in the game. It is deadly accurate when you fire from the hip, making it an amazing choice to kill enemies.
    • Wingman Pistol: The pistols category has a clear winner, the Wingman. There is no competition touching this gun.

Other than using some of the best legends, the guns are the next big thing you should master, and that is why our Apex Legends Mobile best guns entail the top-tier weapons you should use to dominate fights in the game. Here is a brief comparison of every gun from this list:

R-301 Carbine Assault Rifle

Apex Legends Mobile Best Guns
R-301 apex legends mobile

This should not come as a surprise, but the R-301 Carbine is by far the best assault rifle weapon in Apex Legends Mobile. Out of four AR guns in the game, this one shred the enemies when it comes to engaging in close, medium, and long-range combat.

The best part of using the R-301 Carbine is that the assault rifle has a very fast rate of fire, which is probably the highest as well in Apex Legends Mobile. Other than that, this gun also comes with a faster bullet travel speed as well, which makes it an incredible pick for all ranges of combat engagement in the game. 

Another great feature of using the R-301 Carbine in Apex Legends mobile is that the iron sight is very clear and clean, allowing you to aim down the targets without much trouble. Also, the ADS of this assault rifle is also the best in class.

One of the many reasons R-301 Carbine is excellent in any situation is that it comes with two rates of fire modes; full-auto and single fire. The full-auto is the best for close to medium range combat engagements, while the single fire can be used to fire at enemies at long ranges, should you have a good scope attachment installed on the assault rifle. Also, the weapon has no reoil whatsoever, and it makes this gun the best AR in the game.

Regardless of being the best gun in Apex Legends Mobile right now, R-301 comes with one drawback that is a lower base magazine. This can be a problem when you pick the weapon and do not have an extended mag attachment. However, the lower base magazine is not much of a problem when you slot in a higher mag attachment to R-301.

  • Damage: 14
  • Fire Rate: 810
  • DPS: 189
  • Base Ammo: 22 
  • Range: 475
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 55
    Mobility: 30
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 3.2
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.268
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.75
  • ADS Speed: 0.268

Volt SMG

Volt weapon
Volt SMG apex legends mobile

When it comes to using the best SMG gun in Apex Legends mobile, then Volt SMG is by far our top pick right now. This is also the only energy weapon in the game that does not require charging time to fire.

The best part of using Volt SMG is that it has very low recoil, and nine out of ten shots that you will fire on an enemy in close to medium range, will always hit the target; regardless the target is moving or stationary.

Of course, using the best gun in the game is not the solution to dominating one versus one combat engagements as your skills also matter a lot. However, guns like Volt SMG will increase your learning curve faster in Apex Legends Mobile as it comes with little to no challenges and is pretty much an easy SMG weapon in the game to master. 

Similar to R-301, when you pick Volt SMG, you would notice that the iron sight is very clear and clean, allowing you to paint a target with bullets easily. The hip fire is by far the excellent aspect of this weapon, and it is also one of the many reasons we think Volt is the best SMG in Apex Legends Mobile right now.

Another excellent aspect of this SMG is that it comes with high DPS and damage, which most professionals and beginners would want in an SMG. The only downside that we think this weapon has is you can not rely on it to hit targets who are in the medium range, not at least with the iron sight.

If you have slotted in all weapon attachments; barrel, mag, stock, and optics, then you will have a decent chance of taking out enemies from medium range. Otherwise, having this weapon in stock condition makes it very hard to land shots accurately.

  • Damage: 16 
  • Fire Rate: 630
  • DPS: 168
  • Base Ammo: 23 
  • Range: 290
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 56
    Mobility: 29
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 2.6
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.23
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.65
  • ADS Speed: 0.23

M600 Spitfire LMG

Apex Legends Mobile Best Guns
M600 spitfire apex legends mobile

Players who fancy the playstyle of using LMGs, which usually have long ammo capacity, high mag size, and decent range, will find M600 Spitfire as the best LMG in Apex Legends Mobile. There is a catch, though; the Spitfire only drops as a supply drop weapon as of now in the game, and this can change in future updates, as we have observed in the platformer version of Apex Legends game. 

When it comes to picking an LMG weapon in the game that offers high damage, easy to control recoil, and less bullet spread, there is no parallel to M600 Spitfire LMG in Apex Legends Mobile.

Dropping this weapon from a supply pod is probably the best decision right now at the launch of the game. Otherwise, every single player would have eyed to pick M600 Spitfire in their loadout.

While most players would want to use Spitfire as a secondary weapon for close combat engagement, players can use this LMG for mid-range combat as well. The hip-fire would easily get you a kill as running out of the bullets will be the last thing M600 spitfire would give in a tight situation.

Other than that, if you aim down the sight and slot a 2x scope, you can land nine of ten shots on a moving target. 

Overall, M600 Spitfire is an excellent addition to our list of the best guns in the Apex Legends Mobile guide. However, there are a few drawbacks or cons to using this weapon. For starters, the weapon has an average travel speed, and landing medium-range shots may be a challenge as the combat pacing is really fast in Apex Legends Mobile.

Secondly, if you attach a long mag size, the continuous fire mode will gradually increase the recoil of LMG, making it very hard to hit successive shots on a moving target. Lastly, the current version of Apex Legends Mobile drops this weapon in supply drops only, so finding and using this weapon frequently is out of the question. 

  • Damage: 18
  • Fire Rate: 540
  • DPS: 162
  • Base Ammo: 40
  • Range: 457
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 38
    Mobility: 25
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 3.3
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.275
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.85
  • ADS Speed: 0.27

Kraber .50-Cal Sniper

Kraber sniper
Kraber .50-Cal apex legends mobile

Kraber .50-Cal is the best sniper gun Apex Legends Mobile that has the potential to basically one-shot your target if you land a headshot. Similar to M600 Spitfire, this sniper also drops from supply drops, which means you need to look out for them whenever you see them dropping nearby. 

If you have played the multi-platform version of the Apex Legends game, then you will understand how good this sniper rifle is in the mobile version of the game.

There are almost no guns in the Apex Legends Mobile that can break your target’s armor or shield and deplete their health as well in just one shot, and Kraber is by far the only one to do that.

However, the powerful bolt-action sniper rifle that has 6x-10x variable zoom needs to be fired at a greater accuracy to land a headshot, that too on a moving target. Only skilled players who have excellent practice in mobile FPS games will be able to execute this challenging task in the game and one-shot the target. 

The only downside right now is that rate of fire is very low for Kraber .50-Cal, and if you run out of ammo, you cannot pick its ammo type, and you will need to get rid of the gun in Apex Legends Mobile.

Other than that, Kraber comes with a supply pod, so you cannot always find it during most of your matches as only a handful of pods drop in the game, and many players would want to get their hands on Kraber as well. 

  • Damage: 145
  • Fire Rate: 29
  • DPS: 70
  • Base Ammo: 5
  • Range: 980
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 95
    Mobility: 29
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 4.3
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.292
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 2
  • ADS Speed: 0.291

EVA-8 Auto Shotgun

EVA 8 Shotgun
EVA-8 Auto apex legends mobile

Now that you have learned the best guns so far in AR, SMG, Sniper, and LMG categories, it is time you also make yourself aware of the best shotgun in Apex Legends Mobile. There are four shotguns right now in the game, and we believe EVA-8 Auto is by far the best shotgun in the game.

As a rule of thumb, shotguns are famous for bullet spread, and it makes this weapon type an excellent pick to deal damage to the torso, body, and head in a single fire.

However, the best part of using the EVA-8 Auto shotgun in Apex Legends Mobile is that the weapon comes with a fast rate of fire, and the bullets land on a target in eight shape. It means that if you aim at the center part or body of a target, nine out of ten times, the bullet spread will hit the legs, body and head as well.

Secondly, EVA-8 Auto is very lethal when you use it against one or two enemies at very close range. Since it comes with an auto rate of fire, you can spam the shots and get to break an enemy’s shield or deplete health much faster. Also, the bullet spread in close range hits the target very easily, regardless of hip firing or aim down the sights. 

The only downside we think EVA-8 Auto, the best shotgun in Apex Legends Mobile, has is the mag size is small. You can use this weapon as a primary to break an enemy’s shield but to deplete the health, and you will either need to reload or swap the secondary weapon. 

Alternatively, EVA-8 Auto can also be used as a secondary weapon with R-301 Carbine and Volt SMG as primary. Dealing killing blow shots with this shotgun will be much easier to land and finish off a fleeing enemy.

  • Damage: 63
  • Fire Rate: 120
  • DPS: 126
  • Base Ammo: 10
  • Range: 179
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 35
    Mobility: 24
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 3
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.23
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.85
  • ADS Speed: 0.23

VK-47 Flatline Assault Rifle

If there is any other assault rifle that comes close to the performance of the R-301 Carbine, then VK-47 Flatline would be it. There are four ARs in the game, and we think Flatline is the second-best gun in Apex Legends Mobile under the Assault Rifle category.

There are a few features and weapon balances that make Flatline better than R-301 Carbine. Then again, there are a few downsides as well attached to this AR as well that make it an underwhelming AR when compared to R-301. 

For starters, VK-47 Flatline has slightly higher base damage than R-301 Carbine. However, the aim assist is where the latter AR shines the most than the former. Regardless of the higher damage of Flatline, the weapon has a lower rate of fire than R-301, which makes it a decent pick for mid-range combat and not so great for very close range. 

Don’t get us wrong, the VK-47 Flatline is still an excellent gun in Apex Legends Mobile in close to medium range combat, and you can easily rely on it to shred targets using hip fire or aim down the sights. 

Another excellent feature that VK-47 Flatline has is that it comes with a higher base magazine size, which means that you can land a lot of shots before reloading. 

There are a few downsides of Flatline in Apex Legends Mobile that weighs its ranking down. The first one is that when you fire the initial shots, the recoil is high, and you will need to stabilize it. The bullet travel speed is also a little slow as compared to the other three ARs in the game. 

Lastly, you must pick AK-47 Flatline if you think you are a good aim in Apex Legends Mobile or have excellent control in playing FPS games on a touch screen. Otherwise, you will have a hard time learning the little challenging curve of this AR in the game. 

  • Damage: 19
  • Fire Rate: 600
  • DPS: 190
  • Base Ammo: 24 
  • Range: 461
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 45
    Mobility: 30
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 3.1
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.268
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.75
  • ADS Speed: 0.268

Triple Take Marksman Rifle

Apex Legends Mobile Best Guns
Triple Take apex legends mobile

Using sniper as the main weapon is a playstyle not many players would prefer on Apex Legends Mobile, as pinpoint accuracy is required. However, if you are that kind of person, then you need to pick this marksman rifle whenever you see it in the game. We already listed the best marksman rifle in Apex Legends Mobile above, but that drops from the Supply drop. However, Triple Take can be found in random loot crates and inside rooms quite easily. 

The best part of using Triple Take sniper is that it fires three spreading sniper shots that can hit more than one target, provided they are adjacent to each other. Also, you do not require the master skills to use sniper rifles as this one has a forgiving aim. Even if you fire a few centimeters off from the target, the three bullet spread will likely hit the target anyway. 

The tradeoff of using Triple Take as the go-to sniper rifle in Apex Legends Mobile is the overall lower damage. Yes, out of three marksman rifles in the game, this one has not-so-great damage output.

However, this shortcoming is easily compensated by excellent hip-fire accuracy, three bullet-spread sniper rounds fired at a time, and the choke that comes by default on Triple Take.

If you look past the overall damage output of this marksman rifle and combine all the pros, you will understand the importance of Triple Take in Apex Legends Mobile and will probably start using it as well. 

Also, the stock optics are an excellent attachment for close to medium-range combat engagements, and you can shred a target’s shield in two shots, if not then three at best. We recommend making the most of Triple Take as you can use this in combo with an SMG or EVA-8 Auto to deal an insane amount of damage in a matter of seconds.

  • Damage: 69
  • Fire Rate: 75
  • DPS:86
  • Base Ammo: 8
  • Range: 880
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 70
    Mobility: 24
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 3.4
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.292
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 1.3
  • ADS Speed: 0.291

Mastiff Shotgun

Mastiff Shotgun apex legends mobile

Another excellent shotgun weapon that shreds targets with a very slow rate of fire as compared to most shotgun weapon types in the game. Mastiff is a beast when it comes to dealing a massive amount of very close-range damage per shot. 

Unlike EVA-8 Auto, Mastiff is not an automatic shotgun, and the rounds fired take some time before you can fire again. The insane amount of damage and the horizontal burst spread makes it the second-best shotgun in Apex Legends Mobile right now. 

Players who want to have a shotgun weapon as their secondary may not find EVA-8 Auto to be the go-to weapon. However, Mastiff can finish off your targets much faster since it has very high damage. 

Suppose you have broken the shield or armor of your target, and if you swap to Mastiff, a headshot will literally put your target down instantly. Even if you are not a good aim using the mobile phone’s touch screen controls, two body shots will kill your target instantly. 

Another advantage of picking Mastiff, the best gun in Apex Legends Mobile, is that the iron sight is very clean and clear.

Regardless of using a sight optic attachment, the default one is good enough to get you an easy hit on a target. Even if you hip-fire using Mastiff in close quarters, you have an excellent chance of landing the shot on an opponent, provided you fire adjacent to the target.

There are two downsides that we think make Mastiff a very punishing weapon in Apex Legends Mobile. For starters, if you miss a shot, you will need to wait for a half-second or so before you can fire again, as the rate of fire of the shotgun is not great. Missing a shot can prove very punishing, and your enemy can kill you during that time if you keep hitting away from the target. 

Secondly, the damage of Mastiff falls off in the mid-range. For high damage dealing shotgun, the damage falling will be such a disappointment for many players in close quarters combat (CQC).

  • Damage: 104
  • Fire Rate: 78
  • DPS: 135
  • Base Ammo: 8
  • Range: 128
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 36
    Mobility: 24
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 4.4
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.21
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 1
  • ADS Speed: 0.21

Alternator SMG

Apex Legends Mobile Best Guns
Alternator SMG apex legends mobile

R-99 and Alternator SMG are both our favorite weapons in the multi-platform Apex Legends version of the game. However, R-99 becomes unstable quickly, and it is very hard to stabilize the recoil control using the touch screen while playing it on Apex Legends Mobile. At least, that is the case with us. 

Considering this drawback, we think Alternator SMG is a much better sub-machine weapon in the game than R-99. The top-tier aim assists feature that makes hitting a target very easy is the reason we think Alternator SMG is the second-best sub-machine gun in Apex Legends Mobile.

Other than that, the overall damage of Alternator is slightly lower than Volt SMG, but the weapon makes up for it in the stability, recoil control, and aim assist department.

Hitting a target with successive shots is more important when picking a weapon as compared to a gun that has high damage but is challenging to land a shot on a target. 

Another best part of using Alternator as your go-to weapon in Apex Legends Mobile is that the weapon is dead accurate using hipfire. The crosshair is wide enough for you to hover the aim on a target and hip fire. Most of your bullets will land easily on your target in close quarters and will likely give you a kill easily. 

Wingman Pistol

Wingman pistol
Wingman Pistol apex legends mobile

If you have reached the end of our best guns list guide, then you must be wondering why we have not mentioned a single pistol category weapon. That is because we have been saving that spot for the absolute best pistol weapon in Apex Legends Mobile: Wingman.

If you want an impactful hit like a shotgun that breaks shields instantly and a long-range like a sniper, then Wingman is your best friend in the game. This pistol has by far the highest damage dealing capability and decent rate of fire and is deadly at the close, mid, and little bit of long-range as well. 

Of course, weapons such as Wingman require dead accuracy if you are to hit headshots and deal a massive amount of damage. However, even if you can not manage to land a headshot, a body shot will still deal tons of damage and will break your enemy’s armor in just two to three shots. 

This kind of raw high damaging firepower in a pistol is absolutely ridiculous, and you must consider using Wingman if you are really good with touch controls of FPS mobile games in the genre. You will dominate the ring if you master the learning curve of using Wingman in Apex Legends Mobile as this beast of a weapon shred its targets. 

The Wingman has high recoil, which makes it not so great to fire consecutive shots if your target is mid to long-range. However, if you are to fire at close range, then the hip fire is pretty accurate as well, and you can easily get a kill provided all of your shots lands or hit a target.

  • Damage: 45
  • Fire Rate: 156
  • DPS: 117
  • Base Ammo: 8
  • Range: 222
  • Hip Fire Accuracy: 28
    Mobility: 25
  • Full Reload Speed [sec]: 2.1
  • ADS Movement Speed [sec]: 0.19
  • Weapon Swap Speed [sec]: 0.45
  • ADS Speed: 0.19

That is pretty much everything you need to know about the best guns in Apex Legends Mobile. Which has been your go-to loadout so far in the game? For us, it is R-301 Carbine with Volt SMG. Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
