Weapons, Attachments, And Loot
Like most shooters, both Fortnite and Apex Legends have a smattering of different kinds of guns to use in various scenarios, ranging from pistols and shotguns to assault rifles and sniper rifles. Apex Legends' guns come from the Titanfall universe, and therefore tend to mix in sci-fi types like energy weapons, while Fortnite's are usually a little more traditional ̵
One of Apex Legends' better improvements on the battle royal formula is how it deals with inventory management. Guns all take a specific child of ammo, but that ammo is color-coded so when you find some in the world, you immediately know if it goes with the guns you're carrying. When you find weapon attachments, they are automatically added if they fit. If you have a gun with something you find on the ground, any appropriate attachments will be added to it, as well. Anything you find in the world is worse than what you are currently carrying is the market as such. Fortnite, meanwhile, does not include attachments, but instead it uses color codes to denote how good they are. Rarer, higher-tier guns have better attachments like scopes and suppressors, reload faster, or do more damage. For Apex Legends, guns are all the same until you add attachments that make them better, and some attachments are higher – and therefore more effective – than others.
