Comparable to other monsters like the Triple Take and the Sentinel, the Longbow is capable of eviscerating teams over great distances. Let's take a look at its full stats in our Apex Legends Longbow guide, from DPS and fire rate to the gun's shots to kill stats under different circumstances.

Apex Legends Longbow stats

The Longbow was once the punchiest Sniper Rifle you could get in Apex Legends without having the fortune of procuring a Kraber from a rare supply drop. Now, it has fierce competition in the form of both the Sentinel and the Charge Rifle. The Longbow still has an edge though, which is a healthy balance between damage and fire rate. The Longbow is significantly faster than any other sniper rifle, and with its Skullpiercer Rifling Hop-Up, a single headshot can decimate the enemy.
