Apex Legends players have had plenty of time with the new content in Season 10: Emergence, and just like any season, the changes in the recent patch notes have definitely influenced the weapon meta. Let’s get into it and see which weapons are at the top of the Apex Legends weapon tier list.
The Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence update has seen players experience various changes to the weapons and Legends.
As it’s a new season, we thought it would be helpful to compose a tier list for all the weapons in Emergence, as well as the best weapons in each class, so let’s jump into it.
The tier system:
- S-Tier weapons are the best
- A-Tier are amazing in their own right
- B-Tier weapons are just missing something
- C-Tier are weapons that players should avoid
Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence weapon tier list
- S-Tier: R-301, Alternator, Rampage, Spitfire, Kraber, Wingman
- A-Tier: Flatline, Prowler, R-99, Volt, L-Star, G7 Scout, Triple Take, Eva-8, Sentinel, Charge Rifle
- B-Tier: Havoc, Hemlock, 30-30 Repeater, Bocek Bow, Mastiff, Peacekeeper, Longbow
- C-Tier: Mozambique, P2020, RE-45
Best weapons in Apex Legends Season 10: Emergence
The proceeding list is the best weapons in the current Apex Legends meta for each class, excluding the care package weapons.
The Triple Take, Kraber, Alternator, and Spitfire are all-powerful, but you won’t find them in most games, hence their exclusion.
Best LMG – Rampage
After receiving multiple nerfs in Season 9 and ultimately being put in the care package for Season 10, the Spitfire has made way for the new Rampage LMG to take center stage. The Rampage makes for a great medium to long-range weapon with a large mag, high damage, and a slow fire rate.
Like most new weapons that get put into the game, the Rampage is currently very powerful, so take advantage of it while it lasts. The best thing about the weapon is the option to charge it up with a Thermite Grenade, which speeds up its fire rate and allows you to break doors just by shooting them.
When charged up, the weapon becomes even more deadly as it can be used at closer ranges. However, this weapon definitely excels at longer distances, especially as it has hardly any recoil.
This is why the Rampage takes the top stop for us as the best LMG in Season 10 of Apex Legends, as its ability to do such high, consistent damage at range and the option to speed up its fire rate for closer ranges makes it very strong.
Best SMG – Prowler
Since the Alternator was put in the care package this season, the Prowler has returned to floor loot. Those who remember the Prowler are a great close-range burst SMG that can absolutely destroy the enemy.
With a 5 round burst, the Prowler has the potential to put out some serious damage per second if you can hit your shots. Although the select-fire hop-up has been removed and players can only use the Prowler in burst mode, it actually performs better in the burst mode, and if players get used to hitting shots, it can be very strong.
Of course, at close range, the weapon shreds and is even very accurate when firing from the hip. The recoil is also very easy to control, especially with attachments, and the Prowler works great with a 2x Bruiser to make sure you’re hitting those shots even from some range.
The ability to burst someone down from close and medium-range while also having the versatility to maintain accuracy while hip firing makes the Prowler the best SMG in the Emergence update.
Best AR – R-301
The R-301 is the most reliable weapon in Apex Legends Emergence and has been for a while now. Not only is the recoil extremely easy to control for those longer ranged engagements, but the R-301 also has a great fire rate and hip-fire accuracy for those closer ranged battles.
The R-301 is always a great weapon to pick up and allows you to be more experimental with your secondary, as you can use it as a closer or longer-ranged weapon.
Best Sniper – Sentinel
Although the Longbow has been buffed to help it since the removal of Skullpiercer, the Sentinel remains the strongest sniper in the game due to its damage capabilities.
Even without the shield cell charge up, which is very strong, the Sentinel performs well. Although it has a slow fire rate, it hits hard in the chest and especially the head.
Apart from the Kraber, the Sentinel has the greatest damage per bullet in the sniper category, usually dropping someone in 2 to 3 shots, and it’s even more efficient when it’s amped up with shield cells.
Best Marksman Rifle – G7 Scout
The G7 Scout has been one of the most consistently great weapons in Apex Legends since its launch. The weapon has received hardly any nerfs in recent seasons and is still an absolute beast at range.
With a consistent damage output and fire rate, hitting shots with this weapon feels great, especially when you’re hitting headshots. With a 3x or 2x-4x, the G7 Scout can really stand its ground against the other long-ranged weapons in the game, as well as being extremely strong at medium range and even in close combat when hip fired.
Although the Bocek Bow is still powerful, it doesn’t have the same versatility and consistency the G7 Scout possesses. Further, although the 30-30 is also in a much better spot than in Season 8, we still feel the G7 Scout is the most reliable weapon in the Marksmen class.
Best Shotgun – Eva-8
Although it received some nerfs this season, the Eva-8 is still the best shotgun option in the game, mostly due to its high fire rate and ability to do a lot of damage in such a short space of time.
The Eva-8 can even rival SMG’s at close range, which the other shotguns definitely struggle with. Although the Peacekeeper is also a great option, we feel the Eva-8 is still the best shotgun in the game due to its consistent damage and fire rate.
Best Pistol – Wingman
This isn’t a tough decision, as the Wingman is only competing with the RE-45 and the P2020. However, the Wingman is still the hard-hitting powerhouse it has always been.
If you’re hitting your shots with this weapon, it’s extremely deadly and a great option as a secondary for anyone with a fast, rushing playstyle. Although it has a slight nerf with the removal of Skullpiercer, it’s still powerful and can still hold the Quickdraw Hop-up, allowing for a fast ADS.
There you have it, the tier list and best weapons in each class for Apex legends Season 9: Legacy.

How to get Apex Legends modded weapons in Season 10
The Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event in Season 10 introduced Big Maude on World’s Edge, a new location that holds modded weapons.
For those that don’t know, the most recent Evolution Collection Event for Apex Legends Season 10 introduced Rampart’s Big Maude workshop on World’s Edge, which contains some of her modded weapons.
The Apex Legends community was gifted a lot of content in the Evolution Collection Event. Not only were players given 24 new cosmetics along with Rampart’s Heirloom, but they also got a new location on World’s Edge.
The new POI is Rampart‘s Town Takeover, Big Maude, a mobile workshop land crawler that Rampart uses to mod weapons and engineer various creations like Valkyrie’s jets.
In this location, players can actually find and obtain modded weapons to take on enemies in a colorful style, and here’s how to do so.
Rampart’s Town Takeover: Big Maude
Once players were able to get over the server issues, they could drop into World’s Edge and experience the brand new Rampart Town Takeover, Big Maude.
Where is Big Maude and what’s inside?
Big Maude is just outside of Lava City and doesn’t just contain your average loot. It’s also home to Rampart’s Apex Legends modded weapons that are locked inside of the Landcrawler.
Players can find these Apex Legends modded weapons on the bottom floor of Big Maude behind some glass cabinets. The weapons available can vary from a Rampage and R-301 to a Longbow.
These weapons are not only modded because they are a Gold rarity, meaning they come completely kitted with the best attachments but also because they shoot paintball bullets, leaving colorful splashes of paint everywhere you shoot.
How to get Apex Legends modded weapons
As these Apex Legends modded weapons are locked behind glass windows, players will need to obtain 100 crafting materials from the material extractors and open loot bins. The loot bins will give players 5 crafting materials while the extractors will give players 25, meaning players will need to find four of them to have enough for a modded weapon.
Usually, there are extractors nearby, either at Big Maude or Lava City, so keep this in mind when landing around the area.
Luckily, all players can use these extractors, so you won’t have to worry about others stealing your crafting materials. However, the Apex Legends modded weapons can be taken by others, so make sure you loot up quickly!

Apex Legends Season 11 Legend possibly revealed by dataminer
Thanks to the Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event update, dataminers have revealed some possible details about the Season 11 Legend.
Apex Legends dataminers have uncovered some interesting code surrounding a new Legend that could arrive in Season 11.
The recent Apex Legends Evolution Collection Event update introduced some pretty exciting new content, from the new Big Maude location on World’s Edge to various buffs and nerfs detailed in the patch notes.
Like any new update, dataminers have a field day as new code enters the game, which they can source and present to the community.
Although it feels like we have only just received a new Legend with Season 10, Seer, dataminers have already uncovered some information about a future Legend.
The dataminer behind the leaks is GarretLeaks, who has been leaking trustworthy information regarding unreleased content for some time now. Garret was the dataminer behind the Rampart Heirloom, which turned out to be true.
Garret’s latest YouTube video exposes the line of code referencing a Legend that hasn’t been found in the Apex Legends’ code before. Although there is only one line of code, that’s all Garret needs to gain and speculate details about the Legend.
In the video, Garret states that the potential name or codename for this new Legend is “Maali,” and their abilities may also have something to do with providing a “damage boost.”
Garret further states that this would go with what is know about the next Apex Legends map, which is suspected to be a tropical theme, as “Maali” has a tropical ring to it, perhaps due to its similarities with Maui, an Island in Hawaii.
The dataminer speculates that Maali could actually come from this Tropic Island location. It has been a common theme for new maps to drop along with Legends who originate from that area, like Horizon in Season 7 with Olympus.
The code also mentions “damage boost,” which could have something to do with her kit. Perhaps one of her abilities will boost her damage in certain situations.
We’ll have to wait for more information to drop about Maali in the future to know more about their kit. For now, check out our article on the upcoming Halloween event for the battle royale game.

Apex Legends Halloween event start date
At the time of writing, the developers have yet to confirm the official start time for the Halloween event, but we know that it will take place after the Monsters event that’s set to begin on October 12, according to leakers.
The event might take place on the same date as the Fight or Fright Halloween event from 2020. Meaning that we expect the festivities to begin around October 22, 2021.
Respawn tend to host these events, and they’re usually set in the last week of October. Hopefully, the developers will announce the official start date soon enough.
All Apex Legends Halloween Event skins & cosmetics
This Halloween event will probably bring back a few classic skins that we’ve seen before, and there will also be some leaks are suggesting that there will be new monster-themed cosmetics available at the event.
Notable Apex Legends data miner Garretleaks leaked many of the Monster skins along with a set of spooky holosprays. Many of these are expected to drop early on during the event.
Bloodhound Monster skin
Caustic Monster skin
Horizon Monster skin
Loba Monster Skin
Seer Monster skin
Revenant Monster skin
Valkyrie Monster skin
Is there an Apex Legends Halloween Event LTM?
According to data miner Shrugtal, the Shadow Royale LTM will return Apex Legends for the Halloween-themed event. It’s reportedly set to begin on October 26, but the devs haven’t confirmed this.
This LTM turns eliminated players into Shadows that are capable of wall-running and double jumping. Respawn might make a few changes to the fan-favorite mode this time around.
That covers everything we know about the Apex Legends Halloween event. For more Apex Legends, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL, and check out when Apex Legends Season 11 will begin.
