Apex Legends stats show which weapons kill fastest

An Apex Legends player has revealed the weapons you want to use if you’re looking for quick kills by conjuring up some pretty detailed statistics. 

If you want to become Apex Champions, you’ll need both luck and skill on their side. A mixture of good loot, favorable circle rotations, and also a few mistakes from enemy players.

Key to picking up a victory or two is having a good loadout and knowing what equipment to use on the virtual battlefield. So, which weapons will give you the best chance to pick up quick kills with a few swift shots?

Some detailed stats were uncovered by eddygCPA and bears_say_meow, posting their findings to the Apex Legends subreddit with a swish table and graphics. 

In their findings, the Redditors noted that the Havoc has to quickest time-to-kill at 0.46 seconds – though that presumes you hit all headshots and doesn’t account for the quick wind-up. Of course, the Kraber has an immediate kill with a headshot, but you still need to line that up with the crosshairs.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, eddygCPA and bears_say_meow found that the Mozambique has the slowest time-to-kill out of all the weapons. The shotgun clocks in with a 1.36-second timing.

The detailed stats behind Apex Legends’ best weapons.

Top five fastest killing weapons in Apex Legends

  1. Havoc 0.46s (head)/1.00s (body)
  2. Flatline 0.50s (head)/1.00s (body)
  3. L-STAR 0.50s (head)/1.10s (body)
  4. Prowler (Burst) 0.53s (head)/0.93s (body)
  5. R301 Carbine 0.52s (head)/1.05s (body)

The time-to-kill findings are somewhat different to the recent highest damage table that was uncovered by Reddit user Adanub. The two tables differ on their assessment of the Prowler – particularly on its full-auto setting.

In the highest damage findings, the weapon was said to deal significantly more damage while on full auto compare to burst. However, the burst version of the gun has a better time-to-kill rating. 

Of course, some players may follow along with the stats and the in-game meta with hopes of racking up wins, but that doesn’t work everybody.

At the end of the day, it’s all about what weapon you feel most comfortable wielding – even if you do want to use the Mozambique or G7-Scout.

What is code:truck error in Apex Legends & how to fix it? Latest from EA

After Apex Legends received its Holo-Day Bash update, many fans are reporting a brand new code:truck error that’s preventing them from entering the game. Here’s what you need to know about the odd server issue that everyone seems to be getting.

Earlier today, the Holo-Day Bash update went live for Apex Legends, which added in a slew of new content, including some skins and a brand new LTM.

Unbeknownst to players, it seems to have added something else to the game that’s causing a lot of people headaches as they try to log-in.

The Apex community is now reporting a new error code:truck when they attempt to log-in, which is causing some major issues and seems to be caused by the Holo-Day Bash update, although this part is a bit unclear. Here’s what you need to know about the error and if there’s anything that can be done to solve it.

What is the code:truck error in Apex Legends

According to the error messages seen by players, either the game itself or the player is “out of sync with the server.” What that actually means is anyone’s guess.

What we do know about code:truck is that it’s preventing people from logging into the game. It’s affecting a large number of people on all platforms, although the exact extent of this is unclear as of the time of this writing.

Hopefully more information will be available soon.

What can be done to fix the code:truck error?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a surefire fix for the error. As of 7:10 EST on December 1, 2020, Electronic Arts and Respawn haven’t released a fix for the bug. That being said, they did comment on the error, saying they are looking into the problem.

Beyond that, however, we have no update as to what’s causing this error for some players, how extensive is the problem, and, most importantly, what the fix is for it.

Over on Reddit, some players are reporting on a few different fixes but none of the them are confirmed. One player reported that they were able to workaround the issue by changing the date and time on their PS4 and few others confirmed its success.

Hopefully a fix becomes available in the near future to avoid it spreading to other people, which would result in the amount of players logging into Apex Legends to plummet.
