Apex Legends weapon guide: damage stats, attachments and more

The brand new Apex Legends battle royale title is full of nuances and complexities that players have to learn to master, one of which are the weapons.

There are several different types of weapon classes in Apex Legends that are all standard within the battle royale genre -  Submachine Guns, Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns, Sniper Rifles, Shotguns, and Pistols.

The weapons that make up these classes all offer something unique, whether in their range capabilities, damage profile, attachment slots, rate of fire and more. Some have already been nerfed while others have been slightly boosted only a few days into the game's lifespan. 

The new assault rifle. the Havoc, is also included. So, here is everything you need to know about them.
