As Apex Legends starts to settle into a comfortable meta following the game’s release on February 4, pro players are beginning to decide which weapons are the best and which ones need some major work.

As is the case with every battle royale game, there are a diverse set of weapons to choose from in Apex Legends. From sniper rifles and pistols to shotguns and assault rifles, there is something in the game for just about every playstyle.

That being said, however, there are some weapons that stand head and shoulders above the rest and some that are just plain bad (we’re looking at you, Mozambique).

As such, NRG Esports’ Coby ‘dizzy’ Meadows has released his first official weapons tier list, and it features some surprising selections.

If you’ve seen any of dizzy’s gameplay, you’d know that he really fancies using the Wingman. Somewhat surprisingly, however, he’s listed it as the best weapon in the entire game.

NRG Esports/TwitterDizzy’s first official Apex Legends weapon tier list includes some interesting rankings.
  • S-Tier: Wingman, Mastiff, Kraber 
  • A-Tier: Spitfire, Flatline, Peacekeeper, EVA-8, R-99
  • B-Tier: G7 Scout, Longbow, Devotion, Hemlok, Prowler, R-301
  • C-Tier: Alternator, RE-45, Triple Take 
  • F-Tier: P2020, Mozambique

While many might agree that it’s incredibly good, the fact that he put it above the Mastiff and Kraber, the only two legendary weapons currently in the game, might come as a shock to some.

Elsewhere in his list, Dizzy puts the EVA-8 right behind the Peacekeeper, another somewhat surprising ranking given how strong many feel the Peacekeeper is at the moment.

Rounding out his A-Tier are the Spitfire, Flatline, and R-99, which are all widely accepted as some of the best weapons in the game.

To the surprise of just about no one, the Mozambique is one of just two weapons to fall into the dreaded F-Tier, joined by the P2020.

Apex Legends WikiThe Peacekeeper is seen by many as one of the best guns in the game.

Dizzy might have been the first pro player to release an official tier list, but surely many more will follow suit very soon as the Apex Legends meta continues to develop.

With Apex Legends yet to receive a major balance patch at this point in its short lifespan, there’s no telling what the meta will look like once that patch over the next few weeks.

Apex Legends players have got a trick that lets Octane jump seemingly higher than normal when using his launchpad, though, it might be quite situational.

Ever since being introduced back in Season 1, Octane has helped shake up Apex Legends thanks to his unique movement abilities.

The adrenaline junkie might not feature in every match in the same way both Pathfinder and Wraith do, but when he does, you can be sure to see him whizzing around the map using Stim or flying high with his jump pad.

Players have come up with plenty of movement tricks since his introduction, with Respawn going as far as tweaking the pad so that users can use a double jump. Yet, some players have gone even further, well, higher, than that.

Octane can regularly be found in Apex games, but not as much as some other legends.

It comes from Reddit user KILL2BKING, who pointed out that the tip might be pretty situational, but it should help you get the high ground over unknowing opponents. 

Quite simply, when an Octane jump pad is on the floor, you want to punch your way on it. Don’t run, or walk, use your melee attack right before you step on to it and you’ll start to bounce.

Now, if you really want to maximize the height advantage, let yourself float back down to the pad. You’ll then get a boost like it is a trampoline. Then, you can use your double jump to reach even greater heights.

  1. Place an Octane jump pad
  2. Melee attack right before stepping onto the pad
  3. Take a bounce up and down like a trampoline
  4. Double jump off to new heights

As noted, while this tip is pretty useful, it’s also quite situational. Given that you need to bounce up and back down again on the jump pad, it can make you vulnerable to enemy attacks. 

At the end of the day, though, if you need to reach a spot that could you give a leg up in a game, the movement trick is certainly worth mastering. At least until Respawn make legends changes.
