Alternator time-to-kill and other stats

Featured post

The Alternator has been on quite a journey through the Seasons, beginning as one of the worst full-auto weapons in the game, then being buffed to ludicrous degrees thanks to the Disruptor Rounds Hop Up – and nowadays back to pretty much where it began. But in skilled hands, it can still hold its own in a firefight, just like any other weapon. 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.

This Alternator 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.
