Apex Legends RE-45 stats [Season 8]: damage, handling, and more

View our up-to-date RE-45 stats ready for Season 8

With Season 2, Respawn elevated one of the lowest rungs of the Apex Legends weapons ladder, the RE-45, to towering heights with the incredibly powerful Disruptor Rounds Hop Up. With Season 3, that Hop Up vanished, and with it the RE-45's brief time in the sun. But that doesn't mean it can't shred an opponent under the right circumstances. In the below Apex Legends RE-45 guide, we'll walk you through the weapon's stats and other useful info.

Apex Legends RE-45 stats

The RE-45 has had a bit of an up-and-down journey through the seasons of Apex Legends, which seem to correspond with the addition and subtraction of Hop-Ups for this unassuming pistol. Since Season 7 the RE-45 can be fitted with a Quickdraw Holster Hop-Up, which increases its weapon switch speed, ADS speed, and hipfire accuracy, turning it into a reliable sidearm for once you've expended your main weapon in close combat with an injured enemy.
