Did you know that only weapons that use Heavy Rounds are the only rounds capable of opening closed doors? An ability unique to armaments with such ammo, it is capable of destroying the door handle by shooting. Included in this list of Heavy Round guns are Wingman and M600 Splitfire, which are also considered as best weapons in Apex Legends. The said capability is possible because it dishes out the highest physical damage in the game. The damage still depends on the gun, which is a reason why weaponry that uses Heavy Rounds are suitable for almost all types of combats.

On the other hand, firearms that use Light Rounds normally deal lesser damage compared to Heavy Round weapons of the same class. But making up for that drawback is its other features. Weapons of this kind have high firing rate an have less recoil action. Because of that, some guns in the game that use Light Rounds made it to some credible Apex Legends weapon tier list. Included in the lineup of this other type of armament include the R-301 Carbine assault rifle, the G7 sniper rifle, and the R-99 submachine gun. With this variety of guns, players can experiment with a lot of weapon combos in Apex Legends. And after figuring out what works the best, they can incorporate it to their squad combination.

    "Not really a fan of light machine gun types of weapons in any game but the Devotion LMG in Apex Legends really is a good one. Just hope you get lucky enough to find a Turbocharger though cause it’ll step up the starting rate of the weapon"
