Apex Legends Hemlok stats

If you're comfortable using a burst-fire Assault Rifle in Apex Legends, the Hemlok is an extremely powerful choice, particularly once you give it the proper attachments. This gun enjoys a very high DPS if you land all the shots in your three-shot burst each time, so to help you land those shots, it's best to equip the Hemlok with a good Barrel Stabiliser attachment as soon as possible. It can't face a good SMG at short range, but the Hemlok is a startlingly powerful mid-to-long-range gun. Underestimate it at your peril.
