SMG in Apex Legends Apex Legends Guide and Tips

Sub-machine guns belong to light weapons that work well in close quarters or medium range combat. In Apex Legends, SMGs do not cause so much damage as the assault rifles, but they can be utilized in close quarters combat or in small interiors. SMGs are characteristic for their good accuracy.

  1. In close combat, fire longer bursts at the upper body.
  2. On medium distances, switch to semi-automatic or fire short bursts while aiming for the head.
  3. Don't reload the weapon after firing a few shots, especially when there are new targets to eliminate nearby.
  4. If the currently equipped weapon is characterized by long reload times, while you need to eliminate your target, use your side weapon, and reload the main one in a safe location later on.
