The Charge Rifle has resided at the top of the Apex Legends weapons arsenal for multiple seasons now, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change for Season 7. This powerful beam-focused long-range sniper is still one of the deadliest weapons in the game. We’ll go over every aspect of this unique Apex Legends gun in our Apex Legends Charge Rifle guide.

Apex Legends Charge Rifle stats

The Charge Rifle is probably the strongest overall sniper rifle in Apex Legends right now, except perhaps the Kraber .50-CAL. Instead of going the high headshot damage route, the Charge Rifle’s appeal is that is produces a hitscan beam which deals incremental damage over a half-second period, before dealing a massive blast of damage at the end of the charge. If you deliver maximum damage with the charge-up, you’ll effectively double your potential damage with this weapon.

The Charge Rifle has it all: extremely ammo-efficient, powerful without any attachments, and even startlingly powerful at close range. An important note about its hipfire: while the charge-up sends your aim all over the place, the final blast is always 100% accurate, meaning you can beam players from 100 meters while hipfiring. This sniper rifle is crazy.
