Best Weapons in Apex Legends: Season 20 Weapons Tier List

Apex Legends is a very popular game that is known for its unique guns. Hence, here is a tier list of the best weapons in Apex Legends Season 20, according to us


Apex Legends stands out for its dynamic movement mechanics and gunplay, featuring a diverse array of firearms unmatched by other games. Notably, gunfights in Apex tend to be more protracted, placing great importance on mastery of individual weapons rather than relying solely on their statistics. Hence, understanding which guns excel and are relatively easier to handle is crucial.

As of Season 20, Apex Legends continues to evolve as a battle royale experience. Given its emphasis on gunplay, discerning the most effective weapons for asserting dominance is critical. This tier list offers insights into the ranking and viability of each gun within the game, focusing mainly on the top ten firearms.

The Best Weapons In Apex Legends Season 20 – The Weapons Tier List

Apex currently has 29 guns in the game. Each weapon is unique from the other. They have different recoil curves to learn and various forms of damage output. They also feature the satisfaction of shooting influencing the ranking of weapons. No gun in the game is F-tier, as none of them are unusable, and all of them have some function in the game.

The A+ tier represents guns better than the A tier but needs to be better to be an S tier.

S-Tier

Apex Legends is a game where close-range encounters reign supreme. The guns in this tier allow versatility in both ranged combat and close-quarters tussles.

The R-301

  • DPS: 176
  • RPM: 810
  • Magazine: 18/20/25/28

The R-301 is the granddaddy of all assault rifles in Apex. It is a light gun and has the most widely available ammo type. The weapon has an easy-to-master recoil pattern and does solid damage on all ranges. The gun also features a single-shot mode, which allows enemies to be gunned down from long ranges.
The gun remains unchanged this season. However, all the changes to previous meta defining guns make it a top-tier weapon this season.

The EVA-8 has been added to the care package this season. Being a care package weapon, the weapon was given many new perks. The damage per bullet was reduced to 6 from 7. However, the fire rate has been buffed massively. This makes the gun the fastest shotgun in the weapon by a long shot. The gun was also given the hop-up hammerpoint rounds, which do 20% more flesh damage.
The gun was already great, but the new buffs made the gun shred through anything in its way.

Nemesis

DPS: 120-155

RPM: 451~582

Magazine: 20 / 24 / 28 / 32

The Nemesis has risen the ranks. With Burst weapons being the meta this season, the gun offers a versatility like none other. The Nemesis starts off with a slower fire rate but ramps up quickly to do tremendous damage. The weapon also has a large mag size for consistent damage output.

The Nemesis is a threat on all ranges. It is viable from both close and long ranges and is able to take down enemies very easily due to its quick fire rate. The burst fire allows reliability on the longer ranges, allowing for a versatile play.

Wingman

  • RPM: 156
  • DPS: 130
  • Magazine: 9/Boosted Loader 12

The Wingman is a care package weapon in Apex Legends. It is the best pistol in the game. While difficult to aim, the gun has unparalleled power, providing 45 damage with each shot. The gun also has a boosted loader feature, which gives it additional ammo in its magazine when reloaded at the right time.

Prowler SMG

  • DPS: 167
  • RPM: 627
  • Magazine: 35

The Prowler is no longer a care package weapon. However, the gun remains a top pick. The gun is a burst-fire weapon. This allows it to do a ton of damage in no time. The quick fire rate can absolutely shred through enemies at close range. Each mode has its viability in combat. The gun can slice through enemies in both mid and close range. It can also be good from a medium range because of its fast rate of fire.

A+ Tier

Havoc

  • DPS: 202
  • RPM: 672
  • Magazine: 24 / 28 / 32 / 36

The Havoc is the first energy weapon to be featured. The Havoc is a gun that does excellent damage with each bullet it fires. It is extremely easy to get a handle on, and once mastered, it is one of the strongest guns in the game. The gun also has a turbocharger mod which gets rid of its wind-up time and makes it the strongest gun in the game.

Flatline

  • DPS: 180
  • RPM: 600
  • Magazine: 20/25/28/30

The Flatline is the heavier version of the R-301. It has a more challenging recoil pattern but a larger mag size. It can do more damage than the 301 once it is mastered, but it is not as reliable. The Flatline, however, is still a great pick. It is easy to learn and can be used on both the long and close range. The gun can be hip-fired like a good SMG despite being an assault rifle.

Peacekeeper

  • DPS: 73 / 78 / 83 / 84/
  • Disruptor Rounds 89 / 95 / 101 / 103
  • RPM: 44 / 47 / 50 / 51
  • Magazine: 5

The peacekeeper is the strongest shotgun in the game. The only reason why it's not an S-tier gun is that it is a little tricky to learn. Getting consistent shots from it is difficult. However, the shots hit like a truck. With the addition of disruptor rounds, the gun shreds through body armor. It can also choke its bullets, allowing for a tighter, more damaging shot.

C.A.R. SMG

  • DPS: 202
  • RPM: 930
  • Magazine: 19/21/23/26

The C.A.R. is the first Sub-Machine Gun (SMG) to make our list. It is a unique gun as it allows both light and heavy ammo to be used in it. Therefore, it has more versatility. Adding to that, it has a great DPS and is easy to learn, making it a top-tier gun. The car has, however, moved down the ranks due to the nerfs it received for its damage this season.

Kraber

  • DPS: 58
  • RPM: 25
  • Magazine: 4

The Kraber is the most damaging gun in the game. A headshot can take down enemies with one shot if they are not at the highest armor tier. The weapon is only in A+ because it used to one-tap enemies before. The gun is already challenging to master, and one-tapping enemies were the ultimate reward for getting good at the game.

This covers the top guns in the game as it is right now. All the guns are incredibly viable; depending on the situation, some A-tier guns can also be as good as the A+ tier guns.
