Apex Legends players have had plenty of time with the new content in Season 13, and just like any season, the changes in the recent patch notes have influenced the weapon meta. Let’s get into the best guns in Apex Legends by looking at every weapon ranked.
These changes shifted the weapon meta once again, and as new weapons rise to the top, we have a list of the best weapons in Apex Legends Season 13 so you’re clued up on which ones to use.
Here is every weapon in Apex Legends Season 13 ranked.
Best guns in Apex Legends Season 13 ranked list
As well as giving you a list of the best weapon to use from each category, we first want to rank every single weapon in Respawn‘s Apex Legends Season 13. This list does not include care package weapons.
Of course, this list isn’t gospel, and most weapons in Apex are viable. Having said that, this list will reflect the current in-game meta, giving you a good idea of which weapons are considered to be the best within the community.

- Triple Take
- 30-30 Repeater
- Bocek Bow
Best weapons in Apex Legends Season 13
The following list detail the best weapons in the current Apex Legends meta for each class, excluding the care package weapons.
The G7 Scout, Kraber, Alternator, and Spitfire are all-powerful, but they are care package weapons so you won’t find them every game, hence their exclusion.
Best LMG – Spitfire
Now that it is finally out of the Care Package for Season 13, the Spitfire has taken back its place as the most powerful LMG in the game.
One of the main reasons the Spitfire is so strong is because of how many bullets it holds in a clip. Even if you don’t have an extended mag this weapon still holds 32 bullets in a mag.
The damage, fire rate, and recoil are also factors that make the weapon strong, as it’s easy to control at range, but also performs extremely well up-close when hip firing.
Best SMG – C.A.R.
Boasting a high fire rate and extremely fast DPS, the C.A.R. takes the top spot among the Submachine Gun class.
At close range, the weapon shreds and is even very accurate when firing from the hip. The recoil can be pretty hard to control, so make sure you’re within the weapon’s range. With attachments, the recoil becomes easier to control.

The C.A.R’s best feature by far is that it takes both Light and Heavy ammo, as well as magazines.
This makes it extremely flexible, and whether you find a Heavy or Light mag, you’ll be able to use it with this weapon and make it even more deadly. This also means that you’re hardly ever short for ammo, which is an important aspect of dominating in Apex Legends.
Best AR – R-301
The R-301 is the most reliable weapon in Apex Legends Season 13 and has been for a while now. Not only is the recoil extremely easy to control for those longe range engagements, but the R-301 also has an excellent fire rate and hip-fire accuracy for those close-range 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 close or long-range weapon.
Best Sniper – Charge Rifle
The Charge Rifle is our pick for Apex Legends Season 13’s best Sniper. This hit-scan machine absolutely melts at range. The Charge Rifle is even useful in medium-ranged encounters as well.
On a map like Storm Point, the Charge Rifle excels, especially if you can get your hands on a decent Optic such as a 3x or 2x – 4x.
The ability to put pressure at range with ease due to its hit-scan capability makes the Charge Rifle incredibly powerful.
Best Marksman Rifle – Triple Take
While the Triple Take did take some serious nerfs last season which led to a decrease in its output, it still remains the best and most consistent Marksmen Rifle in Apex Legends Season 13.
As many players will remember, the Triple Take shoots three bullets at a time in a trident shape unless you ADS long enough for the precision choke to pull the bullets in. This is the most effective way to use the Triple Take, as hitting an enemy with all three bullets is lethal.

The Triple Take is great from range, but one of the main reasons it’s the best Marksmen Rifle in Season 13 is because of its versatility. Many players will know that the Triple Take is also kind of like a shotgun in close quarters.
Shots come out fast, and the hip-fire is very accurate. This means you can swap to it and finish enemies off or even crack shields then swap to a more reliable SMG. The Triple Take can do high damage at range, especially when you hit a headshot, and is also great in close combat, making it the best Marksman in Season 13.
Best Shotgun – Peacekeeper
Now that the Mastiff is in the Care Package, the Peacekeeper has taken its spot as the best Shotgun in Apex Legends Season 13.

Players can either aim down sights with this weapon for a tighter spread and thus more damage at range, or they can use it like a traditional close-range Shotgun, doing huge damage from the hip.
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, all the weapons in Apex Legends ranked as well as the best weapons in each class for Apex Legends Season 13.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix for Ranked stream-sniping issues coming soon
The Apex Legends devs have confirmed a fix for the exploit allowing Bronze players to stream-snipe in high-Ranked lobbies.
Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re currently working on a fix for the exploit that allows bronze Apex Legends accounts to stream-snipe players in high-Ranked lobbies.
Apex Legends players have dealt with their fair share of cheaters using frustrating exploits, such as the recent one that allowed players on Xbox consoles to completely crash the game’s servers.
Another exploit that’s particularly irritating is one that lets newly-made bronze accounts to immediately get into high-ranked lobbies to stream-snipe players. Now, Respawn Entertainment have responded to this issue.
In Ranked play, Apex Legends players have to play extremely well if they want to climb the ladder and access high-Ranked lobbies. However, cheaters were able to bypass this by using an exploit that lets them sneak into theses lobbies and take out the top players.
Pro player ‘HisWattson’ complained about this issue on Twitter, stating that it’s irritating to report cheaters only to encounter them again in different games. This caught the attention of the developers.
Apex’s Security lead Conor Ford confirmed that the devs are aware of the problem: “I can say that the bronze issue is currently being worked on as well so hopefully you won’t be seeing that soon.”
He didn’t provide any details about when exactly this fix will be implemented in the game, but it’s reassuring to know that Respawn Entertainment are aware of the problem and are currently looking into it.
This exploit allows previously-banned players to pop up and start causing problems in high-ranked lobbies. Hopefully, the Apex Legends update patch containing the fix for the exploit will arrive soon.

Apex Legends split date: Season 13 ranked map rotation, rank reset, & rewards
For those wondering what the split date is for the current season of Apex Legends, here are all the details you need to know.
Every season Apex Legends has a halfway-ranked split which resets player rank and also changes the map to keep things fresh. Here are all the details for Apex Legends Season 13’s split date.
The Apex Legends Season 13 split gives players a small mid-season reset to freshen things up. As well as a new map for Ranked Leagues, players will also experience a soft reset, motivating them to get back into playing ranked for either battle royale or Arenas.
For those interested in knowing more about the split, including the date it will occur, map change, how far your rank will be reset, and the kind of rewards you can expect, here’s our guide on the Apex Legends split date.
Apex Legends Season 13 split date
The Apex Legends split for Season 13 will take place on June 28 at around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
On this date, not only will the map change for Ranked Leagues, but a player’s rank for both Battle Royale Ranked Leagues and Ranked Arenas will be soft reset.
In order to keep things fresh and exciting through the season, the Apex Legends halfway split changes the ranked map and also resets a player’s rank by four divisions.
This means that if you finished the first split at Platinum IV, you will be reset back to Gold IV.
For the second split of Apex Legends Season 13, Ranked Leagues will be changing its map from Storm Point to World’s Edge up until the end of the season.
Many consider World’s Edge to be Apex Legend’s best map for ranked, so those who are yet to experience the map in Ranked Leagues are in for a treat.
The reward you receive at the start of the next season will be based on your highest rank achieved in either of the two splits.
For example, if you achieve Diamond rank in Split 1 but don’t play in Split 2, you will still receive the rewards for Diamond rank at the start of the next season. Keep in mind that to gain the rewards for the Apex Predator rank you must retain the rank until the split ends.
Players will obtain a shiny badge if they are able to achieve the same rank across the two splits within a season.
Here are the following rewards for each rank:
- Bronze – Badge & Holospray
- Silver – Badge & Holospray
- Gold – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
- Platinum – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
- Diamond – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
- Master – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
- Apex Predator – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial

Respawn confirm fix for frustrating Apex Legends Xbox input delay
The Apex Legends developers have addressed the Xbox input delay issue that has been causing frustration, claiming that a fix is on the way.
Xbox players have been experiencing some pretty awful input delay issues for Apex Legends, as Respawn finally address the problem.
Apex Legends Season 13 has been an eventful season for Xbox players. Not only was there a severe exploit that allowed Xbox players to completely crash servers, subsequently ruining ranked matches, but now there is another issue.
Ever since the Apex Legends 13.1 patch, Apex Legends players on Xbox have been complaining about input delay which is making the game unplayable.
Respawn have now addressed the complaints, mentioning the issue in a Twitter post on June 27.
Xbox players have had their experience plagued by input delay issues ever since the Apex Legends 13.1 patch, which is a shame as it has hindered the experience of the Awakening Collection Event and return of Control.
Although it isn’t affecting all players on Xbox, it’s extremely frustrating for those who are experiencing the issue, as the input delay puts the players at such a disadvantage that it isn’t even worth playing.
The devs originally addressed the issue on June 22, tweeting that they were “still working on a fix.” Despite this, players have still been experiencing the issue, wondering when exactly this fix will be coming.
Now, on Jun 27, Respawn Entertainment chimed in and put another tweet out to let Xbox players know that a fix is still being worked on for this issue.
The devs state that they are “continuing to investigate” the input delay issue, but do not give the community an idea of when a fix will be coming. This suggests that the issue has been difficult to solve.
It’s unclear when this problem will be resolved, but hopefully, the devs can get it fixed as soon as possible, especially as the halfway split for Season 13 is set for June 28.
For updates, stay tuned as we will be refreshing this piece with the latest information. For now, check out the leaked Apex Legends Gaiden event.
