Apex Legends R-99 stats

The R-99 was always one of the strongest late-game weapons in Apex Legends thanks to its ridiculous fire rate, so it made sense that Season 6 saw fit to elevate the SMG up to the rare Legendary tier of Care Package-exclusive guns. But now, the R-99 is back in world loot, and in the hands of many a late-game Apex player.

This close-range shredder features low damage but extremely high DPS. Add to that a good Barrel Stabiliser and Light Mag, and you’ve got a strong contender for the most powerful weapon in the game, full stop.
