1. Mastiff

Let’s begin with the biggest and one of the legendary weapons found in the game if you get the chance to get one of these bad boys in the game, it’s best you take it as there will be tons of players running just behind you to take it off you. You can deal up to 288 damage to your opponent with a single shot.

The Mastiff boasts of heavy damage regardless of what level armor the opponent has on, which means you can easily take down a target with just one hit. Here’s the catch though, you will have a limited supply of ammo, 20 to be precise, as the ammo for this gun isn’t found in the game, and neither can you find Mastiff in a loot box in the game as it is only found in airdrops in the game.

2. R-301 Carbine

The R-301 is one heck of an assault rifle, this weapon is one of the easiest to operate in Apex Legends and if you can get a hand on it, you can easily take on enemies which are at medium to close range, but the best part about the R-301 is the fact that it is just as good at long range targets if not better.

When it comes to attachments, the R-301 is one of the most versatile weapons, as you can attach almost any optic to it with other attachments like stabilizers, extended mag and stock easily available. The R-301 uses light round ammo which isn’t that difficult to come by. All these things make the R-301 a trusty weapon.



Another legendary weapon on our list is the L-STAR EMG, what makes it so special is the fact that it has a special type of ammo for it and also that like every legendary weapon you can only get these from an airdrop. The L-STAR is a powerful weapon but there are a few reservations about it.
