Apex Legends L-Star EMG stats: DPS, TTK, spray pattern, new LMG release date

L-Star EMG time-to-kill and other stats

Featured post

The L-Star EMG is an upcoming LMG addition to the Apex Legends weapons roster, which will arrive alongside the new Legend Wattson at the start of Season 2. Because the L-Star EMG is not yet released, details on this new weapon is understandably limited; but our Apex Legends L-Star EMG guide will walk you through everything we do know, from projected stats such as DPS and reload times to the gun’s postulated time-to-kill (TTK) stats under various circumstances.

This L-Star EMG 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.

Apex Legends L-Star EMG stats

The L-Star is an LMG that will arrive at the beginning of Season 2 on 2nd July (for more info on everything else coming to Season 2, check out our in-depth Apex Legends Season 2 guide). It’s the latest weapon to be added to the Apex Legends weapons roster, and the third airdrop-exclusive weapon we’ll be able to get our hands on. Like the Kraber and Mastiff, the L-Star will carry its own unique ammo, meaning what you get with it is all you’ve got.

But it’ll come as no surprise that the L-Star EMG is an absolute beast to make up for its rarity. Respawn have talked before about the power curve of their game’s weapons, where the more common weapons are less powerful whereas the rarer weapons are often (by design) objectively better – and the L-Star looks to top this curve as the most powerful automatic weapon we’ve yet seen.

The below tables go through just about every statistic that might be useful to know about the upcoming L-Star EMG. The first gives basic stats, and the second gives the Time To Kill (TTK) under different circumstances.
