Apex Legends Season 9 landed not that long ago and here we list our personal take on the best weapons from Apex Legends Season 9 ‘heritage‚.
As always, the new season brings a brand new legend to play ‘Valkyrie’ and it has been very well received by the community. Along with the new legend comes the brand new Bocek Bow as well as a huge amount of buffs and nerfs for the already existing content. Respawn Entertainment has done a great job over the past few years, keeping a decently balanced game. Here we describe the best Apex Legends weapons for the Season 9 Legacy update.
# 10 SMG alternator
The Alternator made a big comeback in season 9. He fell out of the spotlight when Disruptor Rounds were quickly added and removed from the game. After some tweaks, this SMG is a great first weapon on landing.
# 9 VK-47 Flatline Assualt rifle
The VK-47 Flatline has always been a solid option, but it’s not very popular compared to the R-301 Carbine. The standard iron sight is one of the worst in the game, but the assault rifle hits like a truck from any distance, knocking down opponents with an extremely short time to lower / kill.
# 8 Wingman Heavy Pistol
The wingman holds a special place in the hearts of many players, or the worst thing is to decorate their screen after death. The wingman has always been powerful, not as powerful as it was in the early days of Apex Legends when professionals ran around killing entire teams with a few headshots. It’s a great first shot on landing, and accurate players can still make enemy players wish they were removed from the game.
# 7 Bocek Bow
The newest weapon in Apex Legends coming in Season 9 is the Bocek Bow, which has already received a sizeable nerf. As the season progresses and more stats about the weapon are released, it can easily move this list up, but for now everyone should pick it up if they see one while it is annihilating enemies.
# 6 volt SMG
The Volt is a great, well-balanced weapon, it is more accurate in range than most SMGs, and it does a lot of damage. With a full range of accessories, the Volt really comes into its own and can handle any situation as a very versatile SMG.
# 5 EVA-8 auto shotgun
It took the EVA-8 Auto Shotgun a couple of seasons to really get into its element after various buffs. It quickly took over the peacekeeping spotlight a few seasons ago. It has lost some of its power since the double-tap hop-up was removed, but it still remains the number one choice for normally looted shotguns.
# 4 R-301 carbine
The R-301 Carbine has never been a really weak weapon and it doesn’t come as a surprise this season that it’s still one of the best weapons in the game. With the anvil receiver hop up, the gun can cover combat from any distance and has one of the shortest time to kill / kill in the game.
# 3 Kraber .50-Cal sniper rifle
The Kraber is arguably the best weapon in the game and, statistically speaking, the best weapon in the game. It’s ranked 3rd simply because you rely on a player’s skills and accuracy to be the best you can be. Most of the weapons on this list like Spitfire, R-301, Volt, EVA-8, R-99, and Alternator can lead a low-skilled player to victory. Many of these weapons can be sprayed and prayed with, with good results most of the time. However, the Kraber does require a skilled player to be effective. If an inaccurate player picks this up, most of the ammunition will hit the walls or floor due to its intense projectile drop and the speed of projectile movement.
# 2 Spitfire LGM
The Spitfire has been on a roller coaster ride since Apex Legends was released. One season it’s the best weapon that kills everyone, and the next it feels like shooting bullets made of paper. Fortunately, as the game progresses, the weapon is finally seeing a balance in its updates and is one of the best weapons in the game right now. It can wipe down an enemy team in a clip with the right attachments and well-placed shots.
# 1 R-99 SMG
The R-99 is again the most powerful weapon in Apex Legends. Take two R-99s with the maximum accessories and you can take out an entire enemy team without having to reload. It fires faster than any other weapon, and every shot smashes the enemy for great damage. It is the king of medium to short range engagements and can lead any player to a win if used correctly. It really is Apex Legends’ best weapon.
And these are the best weapons of Season 9 of Apex Legend. If you want to review the changes made in Season 9, you can review them here.
