Respawn Entertainment introduced the new 30-30 Repeater Rifle to the loot pool in Apex Legends Season 8, and this weapon can be a great choice if you know how to use it.
Apex Legends Season 8 is here, and Respawn have brought a ton of new changes in the battle royale. Kings Canyon has been completely reformed, and a new character named Fuse has been added to the roster.
Fuse wields his trusty 30-30 Repeater Rifle, which is capable of dishing out some serious damage at medium-range. This can be an exemplary weapon choice if you know how to use it, so it’s important that you play your cards right.
That’s why we’ve prepared a few tips to keep in mind, as well as some ideal attachments to use with this rifle.
Fire the 30-30 Repeater from a distance
The first thing you should know is that the 30-30 Repeater is not a great weapon to use in close-quarters combat. As we mentioned before, the gun is effective at medium range, and you can keep an SMG or Assault Rifle as your secondary for when you’re surrounded.
We also recommend that you don’t equip this lever-action rifle during long-range combat, as the slow travel speed of the bullets will cause them to miss their targets at times. The most efficient strategy is to keep your enemies at a moderate distance.
The weapon shares similarities with the Longbow and G7 Scout and is reliable due to its power along with its rate of fire. However, there is room for improvement in certain areas, and you can get that done with a few attachments.
Attach the Extended Mag
While the 30-30 Repeater has an impressive fire rate, its slow reload time leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily, you can reduce the number of times that can become a hassle by adding an extended mag to your weapon.
You can see the number of rounds each mag rarity will give you below:
- Stock: 6 rounds
- White Mag: 8 rounds
- Blue Mag: 10 rounds
- Purple/Gold: 12 rounds
Generally, you’ll get the best results by finding Purple and Gold mags since those are the rarest kind in Apex Legends. However, these aren’t always easy to find early on during a match, so you’ll have to make do with a Blue Mag.
However, having an Extended Mag 30-30 Repeater while slow down reload time even further, so you should find some cover to hide behind if you’re running low on ammo.
Which Optics to put on the 30-30 Repeater
You can equip the following scopes onto the rifle:
- 1x Holo
- 1x HCOG “Classic”
- 2x HCOG “Bruiser”
- 1x-2x Variable Holo
- 3x HCOG “Ranger”
- 2x-4x Variable AOG
30-30 Repeater damage stats
As we mentioned earlier, this weapon is capable of dishing out some impressive damage to your enemies if you use it correctly. You can maximize the amount of pain you deal by charging the rifle in bursts.
You can take a look at the weapon’s stats below:
Make the most of the 30-30 repeater’s charge
Charging the weapon for every single shot is not a good idea, as you would constantly slow yourself down and leave you vulnerable to enemy attacks. Slowing down your rate of fire is a dangerous tactic, so you’ll have to make the most of every charge.

One useful strategy is to fire a couple of shots at your opponent, and then charge the final one until it turns blue before firing again. This will disorient your opponents, and that last shot can boost your damage by 35% per hit.
That covers everything you need to know about Fuse’s 30-30 Repeater, and it’s now up to you to decide if you’re going to make the most of this powerful weapon.

Can you play Apex Legends Mobile with a controller?
Apex Legends Mobile has arrived on Android and iOS. Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s controller support.
Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.
But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.
- Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
- When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?
Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.
Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.
They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.
When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?
While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”
They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.
Although there is no official support for it, players can actually pair their Bluetooth controller with their phone and use it. The controllers that are compatible and can pair with your mobile device include the following:
- Xbox Series X/S controller
- Xbox One controller
- PlayStation DualSense controller
- PlayStation 4 controller
- Razer Kishi
Simply activate the pairing mode for the controller and find it on your mobile’s Bluetooth devices section. This will allow you to use the controller on Apex Mobile, but unfortunately, as there is no support for the feature, it can be buggy, especially when it comes to customizing your layout.

Apex Legends devs confirm fix for Xbox server crashing exploit in Season 13
The Apex Legends devs have officially fixed the Xbox server crashing exploit that was plaguing ranked games in Season 13.
Apex Legends players will be happy to hear that the Xbox server crashing issue that has been ruining games, especially in ranked, has officially been fixed by the devs.
Unfortunately, players on consoles couldn’t enjoy the new system to the extent that they maybe wanted to due to a serious exploit plaguing the experience and causing servers to crash.
Luckily, it seems the devs have fixed the issue with a hotfix that went live on May 25.
In Apex Legends Season 13, Xbox players noticed that they were able to crash the server and prevent themselves from losing Ranked Points by doing so. This was ruining the experience for others, especially as Apex Legends is cross-platform.
While some believed this was a DDoS issue, the devs confirmed it was an exploit on Xbox and pushed a fix on May 18. Unfortunately, the fix didn’t work, and Xbox players were still able to crash servers and ruin matches for others.
This has been very damaging for players who have been trying to rank up and enjoy the brand new ranked changes, even turning people off from playing the game.
A Respawn dev let the community know that another hotfix went live on May 25 which seems to have fixed the issue caused by players on Xbox consoles.
So far, it seems like this fix has done the trick, as players have not been reporting the issue in the community.
Finally, players can enjoy the ranked grind without having to worry about the game crashing and wasting time in a match that could all end in nothing.
With that being said, you may want to check out the best landing spots on Storm Point, which is the ranked map for split 1 of Season 13.

Apex Legends leak reveals Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus
Apex Legends’ Combat Medic Lifeline may be the next Legend to get a Town Takeover, which could be seen on Olympus in Season 13.
An Apex Legends leaker has revealed potential plans for a Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus, which could be seen in Season 13.
Apex Legends Season 13 saw some new additions to Storm Point, including the Downed Beast and IMC Armories that both hold some impressive loot. Having said that, players are yet to see a new Town Takeover since Big Maude was introduced on World’s Edge.
As well as two new events set for this season, new leaks are suggesting that Lifeline will be getting a Town Takeover in Season 13, which could be based on Olympus.
Rumors surrounding a new Town Takeover for Apex Legends Season 13 are circulating the community, with some even believing it may coincide with the leaked Collection Event.
Some leakers thought we would be getting a Bangalore Town Takeover on Storm Point this season, but as we already got the Downed Beast and the IMC Armories, it actually may be more likely that we will be seeing a new Town Takeover for a different map and Legend.
Reputable Apex Legends leaker Thordan Smash stated in a recent video that he now believes that we may see a Lifeline Town Takeover for Olympus in Season 13, stating that the Bangalore Town Takeover has potentially been “scrapped.”
Further, new quips were leaked from the game files mentioning a “Med Station,” and Lifeline has more quips mentioning this new concept than any other Legend. This suggests it may be specific to her, perhaps the Med Station is actually the name of her Town Takeover POI.
Apex Legends leaker Ezra-RC also leaked a version of Olympus that is code-named “LTT” in the files. Many believe this could stand for Lifeline Town Takeover, however, nothing is confirmed as of yet, and the map is just the Season 12 version of Olympus.
As more information is released we’ll be sure to update this piece and provide all the information.
