Apex Legends Flatline stats

The Flatline has always been a solid primary weapon in Apex Legends, but cast aside often in favour of the more accurate R-301 Carbine. But while it's true that the Flatline has a fair recoil that cannot be diminished with a Barrel attachment, if you master this weapon you have a far punchier and more punishing Assault Rifle capable of ripping enemies to shreds at mid-to-close ranges.
