The weapon classes are separated into colors, each class has a different color code.
Apex Legends Weapon Tips and Tricks:
Each weapon has a different damage output, reload time and magazine size which you can check in the table above. It is important to get to know the stats of a weapon in and out to master every single or the favorite ones you love to play with.Weapon Tips & Tricks:
- Equipment and Loot that you find will be automatically attached to your weapon if it fits, it will be used first on your primary weapon or choose the next free slot. Of course, you can switch the attachement later.
- If you want to move faster, put your weapon away, it also increases the jump and slide distance.
- Helmets do not add HP but give more resistance against headshots, it’s easier to hit headshots on targets without a helmet.
- The maxmium HP of an Apex Legends character is 200 health, which is seperated into 100 base health and 25 health for each level of shield.
- Some weapons allow expanding the magazine size with attachments, which can make them incredibly strong and surprise your enemies.
- You can see the weapon damage while you are fighting, which you can edit in the Apex Legends menu settings: The default settings are showing the total damage from all of your hits in a burst and single damage numbers for single shots.
- The shown damage numbers are color-coded and it depends on the armor of the enemy: Yellow means headshot, purple for purple and golden shields, blue for blue shields, white for common shields and red for true damage if the enemy has no more shield. Smashing hits that go through the shield are also supported by a shattering sound!
- Weapons with burst damage are sometimes hard to calculate, every single bullet that hits counts and will be displayed in the table alone! For spread weapons like shotguns, all bullets are shown together to display the whole damage.
Apex Legends Weapons Spray List and Hitscan Physics
If you spray a specific weapon a predictable recoil pattern will appear. Like in Counterstrike Global Offensive (CSGO), every weapon in Apex Legends has a different recoil behavior.
The easiest way to test this, is to shoot at a wall and check what is happening, the recoil pattern will be always the same. This is called the game mechanic and as an Apex Legends player, you should make use of it to get better at aiming. Checkout the image below to see how the spray behaves for each weapon and try to make the most out of every action you do while shooting!While other games like Fortnite are using Hitscan, the game engine of Apex Legends renders bullets as a physical object that have travel times, keep that in mind especially for longe range weapons like snipers:
If you shoot at a large distance, always calculate where the target will move to and how far away it is.
It’s a good tactic to shoot into his movement direction instead onto the target itself, but this needs a bit training.
