Apex Legends Volt stats
The Volt is like a mini-Devotion in many ways. It's an Energy-based SMG with high DPS potential, but it guzzles Energy Ammo with its low magazine capacity and quick reload times. Nonetheless, it's a top-tier weapon in Apex Legends thanks to its rather amazingly low recoil, allowing you to beam enemies at unexpected distances for an SMG.
