Alternator time-to-kill and other stats

Featured post

The weapons roster of Apex Legends operates as it is meant to – as a steadily increasing power curve of rarity and effectiveness. The poor old Alternator SMG sits right at the lower end of this curve; but that doesn’t mean it can’t save your life and rack up kills if you know how to use it. Our Apex Legends Alternator guide will go through the various basic stats of this automatic SMG, before delving into the gun’s time-to-kill (TTK) stats under different circumstances.

Note: we will be fleshing out these individual weapons pages with in-depth tips, facts, and strategies as time goes on; but until then, just take a look below for all the most up-to-date and useful statistics on the Alternator SMG.

This Alternator guide is just one tiny part of our massive Apex Legends tips/guide series, which we’ve packed with general info and advanced tips and tricks. If you’re looking for comparative stats on all the weapons in Apex Legends together, look no further than our Apex Legends guns/weapons guide.
