Season 15 Apex Legends Weapon Tier List: A Comprehensive Ranking

With another season of Apex Legends in full swing, newcomers have likely had adequate time to ease into their play style and legend preference. In typical Respawn fashion, weapons continue to be adjusted each season. Noobs and veterans alike have felt the effects of these recent changes Respawn has made to the weapons. With sleeper buffs and unnoticed nerfs, it may be difficult to determine what weapons fit into the current ranked split. Look no further, because we’ve taken the guesswork out of what weapons frag, and what weapons to avoid at all costs this season in our Apex Legends weapon tier list.

For our breakdown, all weapons in the care package will be ranked conventionally,
meaning they will not all automatically be S-Tier.

As is the case with our other tier lists, we update our lists based on the current ranked season. These recommendations carry over to pubs as well though. The weapons in each individual tier are in no specific order, unless otherwise specified.

Apex Legends Weapon Tier List

Charge Rifle

Let’s get this out of the way first and start off with a hate it or love it weapon, depending if you are on the giving or receiving end. The Charge Rifle deserves its own category because it is the ONLY true hit scan weapon. While the damage numbers may be a little tricky to understand, all you need to know is that you can deal a total of 90 damage with a single shot.

Because of its unique characteristics I’ve decided to leave the Charge Rifle out of our Apex Legends weapon tier list, but if I had to rank it I would put this in the A-tier due to the high damage output and hitscan capabilities. The lack of utility for midrange fights and high ammo usage, along with an extended reload time are really what is holding it back from being an S-Tier weapon. Regardless of that, this is a great weapon in early-game for griefing other teams and farming Evo hield for your entire squad and can be quiet an annoyance.


These are the superior, meta, MUST pick weapons. If you see one, grab it! If you aren’t familiar with them, take some time to learn them in the firing range or pubs.

G7 Scout

On paper, this Marksman weapon is the best in its class, outperforming the second best by roughly 150% when it comes to DPS (Damage Per Second). Consider this a superior version of the 30-30 Repeater. The Double Tap Trigger hop-up has next to no recoil, but it is something that I turn off when I am dealing poke damage from afar. Of the Marksman class weapons, this one has the highest fire rate and feels the most consistent.

The G7 Scout is much easier to learn than other weapons of its class: you can easily pick this up and just harass other squads from afar or do poke damage from your power position before you run low on ammo and switch back to your close-range secondary. The G7 Scout is certainly a fun weapon to use and is deceptively devastating.

VK-47 Flatline

The Flatline truly is the best all-purpose weapon in the game, so it makes sense that it’s in the S tier of our Apex Legends weapon tier list. With the return of the Anvil Receiver, you can easily switch to semi-auto for greater precision in longer range engagements, since those can be a bit more difficult on full auto if the Flatline is your primary long-range weapon. Jitter aiming is crucial if this is your goal.

In mid to close range fights, the Flatline can rip a foe to shreds. In the midrange, the higher DPS really comes into play, while the insanely good hip fire characteristics makes this weapon fantastic in close-range.

While this Assault Rifle has a higher skill ceiling with its bullet drop and recoil pattern in full auto along with the requirement to lead enemies at greater distances, I consider this weapon to be my security blanket, and it can be used in all scenarios. The Flatline has great utility and can make for a very reliable primary and/or secondary in your loadout.

R-301 Carbine

For those who want a consistent and much more forgiving Assault Rifle, enter the R-301 Carbine. Any player, no matter their experience level, can easily pick this thing up and start beaming, as the handling on this Assault Rifle is superb.

With excellent accuracy, a high rate of fire, good performance during the mid to long-range engagements, and a decent hip fire spread, this gun is nasty. The Anvil Receiver is a great addition but it’s not as impactful as it is on the Flatline. The option is still there though, and it can help with ammo conservation if needed.


Those of you who started playing Apex when it first came out may scoff at the fact that I ranked the C.A.R. SMG higher than the R-99. Trust me, this was not easy for me, as I am a loyal R-99 fanboy. On paper though, the C.A.R. just outperforms the R-99 in the DPS category. In fact, it has the quickest TTK (Time To Kill) of all the weapons, and this can make the difference in a life-or-death situation, especially during early game. Finally, because the C.A.R. can operate with light or heavy ammo as well as either type of magazine, it gets the edge. Again, there is a higher skill ceiling here, as the recoil pattern requires a bit more practice to learn.


Unsurprisingly, we have the iconic high-powered and hard-hitting revolver in the S tier of our Apex Legends weapon tier list. This pistol has one of the highest skill ceilings, and trying to master it can be frustrating and even titling at times. Conquering the fire rate timing, increased ADS movement speed, and high recoil may deter people from picking one up but if you put the reps in you shall reap the sweet and satisfying rewards, head click after head click.

Think of the Wingman as a Flatline that you can put in your pocket. It performs extremely well even at longer ranges, helps with ammo conservation, and can even open doors with well-placed shots. Its ability to be devastating in close quarters combat scenarios is slept on by a lot of people. Given the fact that it has no movement penalty whilst ADS, it really allows you to outmaneuver your enemies in close quarter situations. This is absolutely a high skill weapon, but once you become proficient with it you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

RE-45 Auto

Arguably the best weapon in the current Supply
