Assault Rifles in Apex Legends Apex Legends Guide and Tips

Assault rifles are the most popular type of a weapon found in Apex Legends. Assault rifles work well on any distance, but firing longer bursts will require correcting the crosshairs to mitigate the weapon's recoil. To fully utilize the weapon's potential, always aim for the head, as the first round always lands on its target.

  1. In close combat, you can fire longer bursts aiming for the body and slightly correcting the crosshair.
  2. On medium distances, switch to semi-automatic or fire short bursts while aiming for the head
  3. If you are firing from a longer range, switch to semi-automatic while aiming for the head
  4. On longer and medium distances use the sights and aim along the target's projected path of movement.
  5. Avoid burst mode. It is better to go for semi-auto or full-auto in order to control the weapon better.
