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

Featured post

The L-Star EMG was Season 2’s new addition to the Apex Legends weapons arsenal, and it’s still a hell of a gun. Now available as a world-drop instead of being found purely in supply drops, the L-Star is capable of tearing players apart in milliseconds thanks to its extreme DPS – but its power comes at the price of easy overheating.

Our Apex Legends L-Star EMG guide will walk you through everything we know about this new weapon, from projected DPS and reload times to the gun’s time-to-kill (TTK) stats under various circumstances.

This L-Star EMG guide is just one tiny part of our massive 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.

Apex Legends L-Star EMG stats – DPS, TTK, fire rate

The L-Star is a powerhouse of an LMG, thanks to its blistering damage and rate of fire, both of which put its DPS near that of the Devotion, the king of the LMG family. But the L-Star also has a couple of interesting advantages. Namely, larger projectiles (making it easier to land shots with), and – more importantly – it lacks the warm-up period of the Devotion.

The big downside is that the L-Star is the first ever gun in Apex Legends to suffer from an overheating mechanic, which locks you out of firing for a couple of seconds if you fire too many shots in a certain space of time. So you’ll have to learn to feather the trigger a bit if you want to avoid an unfortunate overheating incident (I’ve found you can fire in bursts of around 8 shots at a time in order to avoid overheating).

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.
