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 shreds 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 in Apex Legends Mobile as well. 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. 

One of the many reasons the 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, the R-301 comes with one drawback, which is a lower base magazine.

  • 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

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 of whether the target is moving or stationary.

With high DPS and damage, the Volt is favored by both professionals and beginners. However, its effectiveness diminishes at medium range, especially without optics attachments. Fully equipped with attachments, it becomes more viable for medium-range engagements.

Despite these strengths, relying solely on its stock configuration can make accurate shots challenging. Overall, the Volt SMG offers exceptional performance in close-quarters combat but requires attachments for optimal effectiveness at longer ranges.

  • 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

The M600 Spitfire LMG in Apex Legends Mobile stands out for its high damage, manageable recoil, and minimal bullet spread, making it a top choice among LMGs. Obtaining it from a supply pod is highly desirable, given its effectiveness in combat.

However, there are drawbacks to consider. Its average travel speed and fast-paced combat can pose challenges for medium-range engagements. Additionally, attaching a long magazine can increase recoil, impacting accuracy, especially against moving targets. Moreover, its availability exclusively in supply drops limits its frequency of use in matches.

  • 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

The Kraber .50-Cal is the premier sniper rifle in Apex Legends Mobile, capable of delivering devastating one-shot kills with headshots. Like the M600 Spitfire, it is exclusively found in supply drops, requiring vigilant attention to secure.

Its unmatched ability to eliminate targets with a single shot distinguishes it from other weapons in the game. However, achieving this requires precision aiming, particularly against moving targets, making it suitable for skilled players with experience in mobile FPS games.

Despite its exceptional power, the Kraber .50-Cal has a low rate of fire and lacks the option to replenish its ammo, necessitating careful ammo management during gameplay.

  • 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

The EVA-8 Auto shotgun stands out in Apex Legends Mobile for its rapid rate of fire and effective bullet spread, covering a wide area with each shot. Its automatic firing capability makes it particularly deadly in close-quarters combat, allowing for quick shield breaks and damage against one or two enemies.

However, its small magazine size can be a limiting factor, requiring frequent reloading or switching to a secondary weapon for sustained engagements. Despite this drawback, its versatility and effectiveness in close-range encounters make it a valuable choice for aggressive players.

  • 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

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

Show Full Text

Its slower rate of fire makes it better suited for mid-range engagements rather than close-quarters combat.

However, the Flatline’s initial high recoil and slower bullet travel speed are drawbacks that affect its performance. It requires precise aiming and recoil management skills, particularly on touch screens, to effectively utilize its potential.

Overall, the VK-47 Flatline is a solid choice for players who prioritize damage and accuracy but may present a learning curve for those accustomed to faster-paced assault rifles.

  • 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

The Triple Take Marksman Rifle offers a unique playstyle, firing three spreading sniper shots that can hit multiple targets. Its forgiving aim makes it accessible for players not accustomed to sniper rifles, and it’s commonly found in random loot crates.

Despite its lower damage compared to other marksman rifles, the Triple Take’s versatility is highlighted by its excellent hip-fire accuracy and default choke attachment. This makes it a valuable choice for players seeking multi-target engagements without requiring pinpoint accuracy.

  • 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
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. 

Show Full Text

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. 

There are two downsides that I 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 my favorite weapons in the multi-platform Apex Legends version of the game. However, the 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. 

The best part of using Alternator as your go-to weapon in Apex Legends Mobile is that the weapon is dead-accurate using hip fire. 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. 

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

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

Wingman Pistol

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 close, mid, and long ranges as well. 

This kind of raw, damaging firepower in a pistol is absolutely ridiculous, and you must consider using Wingman if you are really good with the 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 shreds 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 land 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

My Experience With Apex Legends Mobile’s Guns

All of the guns mentioned in the guide are top-tier guns, of course, but these guns are highly dependent on a player’s gameplay. I have been playing Apex for quite a while now, and I am confident in my mid-range as well as in long-range duels. So, the gun that I prefer to use is VK-47 Flatline, which is, of course, the best mid-range gun available in Apex.

My concurrent progress on Apex Legends

Other than flatline, I prefer having the Kraber as my secondary gun; however, getting the Kraber is hard since you have to hunt the airdrops. If Kraber is not available, then I prefer using the Triple take, as it can be used in long as well as in mid-range. R301-Carbine and Wingman are also a good choice for mid-range duelers.

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.
