Apex Legends EVA-8 stats

The EVA-8 may lack the close-quarters bite of comparable shotguns such as the Mastiff and certainly the Peacekeeper, but its full-auto nature and high rate of fire makes it one of the most reliable and forgiving weapons in Apex Legends. It can also be equipped with the Double Tap Trigger Hop-Up, which allows it to fire twice in quick succession, delivering massive damage as long as you ensure the majority of your pellets hit the enemy.
