Apex Legends EVA-8 stats

The EVA-8 may lack the close-quarters bite of comparable shotguns such as the Mastiff and the Peacekeeper, but its full-auto nature, high magazine size, and high rate of fire make it one of the most reliable and powerful weapons in Apex Legends. The pellet spread is also tight even in hipfire, which allows you to move around more quickly while firing in close range engagements.
