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 makes it 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 much more easily than with almost any other gun. It's just that accurate.

The below sections go through just about every statistic that might be useful to know about the R-301 Carbine in Apex Legends. The first gives basic stats, the second focuses on damage, and the third section displays various handling stats for the R-301.
