An Apex Legends fan has taken the time to break down each weapon’s time to kill (TTK) for season 6, all the way from poor Mozambique to the deadly R-99.
For those still unsure which cannons to prioritize in the sixth season of Apex Legends, help is on the way. While everyone’s comfort with recoil control and the game’s attachment change RNG makes gun preference completely subjective, it’s worth knowing how each gun performs at a basic level.
As such, a YouTuber named ‘Davengeful’ has blessed King’s Canyon’s best with the nitty-gritty details of how each of the battle̵
Davengeful stood within 10 yards of a red training dummy (or technically ‘DUMMIE’, which stands for Digital Utility Mock Man Intelligent Example) and tested all of the game’s Season 6 assault rifles, light machine guns, submachine guns and shotguns. Standing further away, they also tested the sniper rifles.
For these tests, Davengeful did not use any hop-up attachments and simply fired with perfect accuracy to achieve a base state. This means that there is no Selectfire Prowler data to be used, only the typical burst behavior of the gun. Still, the regular version of SMG remains one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
As no surprise to players who have fallen into a game of Apex Legends once again, Mozambique is a grotesque weapon. While its headshot TTK is decent (and faster than some of the game’s other cannons), its body TTK is a whopping 4,504 seconds.
In terms of context, it’s a little longer than it would take for you to down four enemies and only hit body shots with the R-99.
With TTK listed in seconds and no hop-ups included, here’s how the Season 6 list of weapons stacks up. This is relevant per October 16, 2020, so that all data can be changed with the release of new patches.
As it stands, the list goes downhill from light weapons to heavy, to sniper, to energy, to shotguns and finally the highly touted R-99 Supply Drop gift.
Apex Legends Season 6 Weapons TTKs
|Pistol||Headshot TTK||Body TTK|
|P2020||1,231||1,770 th most common|
|Generator||1,040 th most common||1,517 th most common|
|G7 scout||1,009||1,741 th most common|
|Hemlok||0.689||1,549 th most common|
|Triple Take||1,009||1,741 th most common|
|Devotion||1,103||1,581 th most common|
|L-star||0.722||1,326 th most common|
|EVA-8||1,262||1,741 th most common|
|Peacekeeping||1,294||1,549 th most common|
As you will notice, the R-99 completely deserves its rarity because it has the game’s fastest body TTK and one of the fastest TTKs with head shots. Its longtime companion among revered light weapons, the R-301, is also devastating – with the fastest headshot TTK in the entire game.
While sniper rifles may feel understated from this table, keep in mind that this is only raw basic data. Sniper is easier to hit shots with from range thanks to range and bullet speed, so players should not be discouraged just by the data found here.
Nevertheless, they should be advised against using Mozambique. The numbers do not lie with one.
