Apex Legends R-301 Carbine stats

The R-301 Carbine is one of the most accurate weapons in Apex Legends, and the fact that its main disadvantage (a low natural magazine capacity) can be overcome with the right attachment. One of the strongest and most reliable mid-range weapons available, the high rate of fire gives this low-damage weapon a very respectable DPS, but the real strength of the Carbine is the fact that you can hit your shots more easily than most other guns. It's just that accurate.
