Most explosive weapons in Apex Legends in Season 9

The Wingman is not only the best pistol in Apex Legends, but one of best weapons in the entire arsenal. It undoubtedly is a hard weapon to use, but can be highly rewarding once you master it. It deals massive damage per-shot and is the only pistol that doesn’t lose the headshot multiplier because of range.

SMGs have always been fan favorites in Respawn Entertainment‘s Battle Royale game. A weapon that has played an active role in creating this narrative is the R-99.

Harsh recoil is the only noticeable issue with this SMG. Besides that, it boasts one of the highest DPS stats, and can take down opponents in no time. Moreover, keep a note of your ammo while using the R-99 because its fast fire-rate utilizes ammo very quickly.

Another SMG in this list is the Volt, that uses Energy ammo. It serves the purpose at almost all the ranges and is a great choice even after the latest nerfs.

The viability of the Volt makes it a top weapon in Apex Legends. From fast reload speed to hip fire, this weapon has it all.

The VK-47 Flatline, in simple words, is a better alternative to the M600 Spitfire. Even though it has a small mag size, the weapon compensates for it through the high damage and time-to-kill.

With the right amount of practice, you will be able to control the recoil of the VK-47 Flatline, and dominate every aspect of a gunfight in Apex Legends.

The R-301 deserves appreciation for its versatility. To say the least, it offers everything that the other weapons on this list have, which includes low recoil, decent damage, long range viability, fast fire rate, and low reload time.

The R-301 can take the place of any weapon in the arsenal and you can make the best out of it in every sticky situation. It is also easy-to-use, unlike other alternatives that still require a lot of time and patience to master.
