The Longbow DMR was, in Season 2, the go-to sniper rifle of choice thanks to its buffed fire rate and very high damage – especially headshot damage. Now, despite Season 3 bringing us a larger and more horizontal map that should prove to be a sniper’s playground, the Longbow’s usefulness has dropped off slightly compared to other snipers such as the Scout and the new Charge Rifle. But is it still worth using? Let’s take a look at its full stats in our Apex Legends Longbow guide, from DPS and fire rate to the gun’s TTK (time to kill) 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 Longbow DMR.
This Longbow guide is just one tiny part of our massive 100 Apex Legends tips 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.
