Apex Legends Season 8 Mayhem is a celebration of the game's two-year anniversary. The currently ongoing collection event is even further proof of that. The patch for the latest season brought some changes into the weapons department and things have changed to a degree. Take a look at some of the best weapons in Mayhem!

Season 8 of Apex Legends added the 30-30 Repeater and golden magazines for every type of ammo, except shotgun. That's enough to make a huge difference in the weapon meta and today we'll be taking a look at what works and what doesn't. Without further ado, here are the top 8 weapons in Season 8 of Apex:

Triple Take Apex

8. Triple Take

When it comes to snipers, there's probably no better overall weapon in that category than the Triple Take. It deals heavy damage, it has a nice headshot multiplier, and it has the fastest fire rate out of all the snipers. This easily makes it the best sniper in the game right now. You can even use it in close range to finish off foes.

7. Eva-8

When it comes to shotguns there are basically two choices and Eva-8 is the more forgiving one. It has a bigger clip than the Mastiff, you don't have to aim down sights to be effective with it and it can deal massive damage up close. On the downside it has a bigger spread but that's not a problem if you're near your enemy.

6. Volt

The Volt was nerfed recently, and its damage output got reduced. That's all for a good reason, as the weapon was a favorite pick for many players. Despite the changes, the Volt is still a decent pick in close to mid-range scenarios. Its recoil is quite easy to control, and a full clip will usually take down an enemy. It's still a great weapon!

Spitfire Apex

5. Spitfire

If you were looking for a weapon with heavy ammo, we're quite happy with the Spitfire. Why? It's great at basically any distance. The weapon got a buff in Season 8, with bullet damage increasing from 18 to 19. In Season 6, it received a recoil control buff, and now it's an absolute beast. It has plenty of ammo in a clip to work with, deals good damage per second (171), and the only downside is the slow ADS.

Flatline Apex

4. Flatline

You just can't go wrong with the Flatline. It deals 190 damage per second, has a huge clip and it's effective at any distance. Usually, you'll be better off using it in mid to long-range but in most cases, it should be fine in close too. It's one of the two weapons that can use the Anvil Receiver hop-up and that makes it deadly with single-fire.

R-301 Apex

3. R-301

The R301 is among the best weapons you can get and it has one of the highest damage per second (189). With the return of the Anvil Receiver, it got a massive upgrade in Season 8 which brought back its single fire to life. So why is it better than the Flatline when the former has a bigger clip and higher DPS? It's way more generous when it comes to recoil control so new players will have a blast with it.

2. R-99

Welcome to the highest DPS weapon in the game - 198 to be exact. When you see this weapon on the ground it's a no-brainer to pick it up. It'll give you a massive advantage in close to mid-range and that's where most skirmishes will be taking place. In most cases, you won't be able to take down a foe with a single clip (unless it's upgraded) but add a couple of headshots here and there or pull out your secondary to finish the job.

Mastiff Apex Legends

1. Mastiff

You knew this was coming right? The Mastiff is the weapon of the season right now. It feels more like a close-range sniper than a shotgun. You can deal massive damage with it and it's not even close to any other weapon when it comes to that sort of split-second burst except snipers. The thing is, snipers are more situational, while the Mastiff will do good in most games. One full shot to the body deals 104 damage, two of those will take down most enemies.

30-30 Repeater Apex

Honorable Mention: 30-30 Repeater

The new weapon of Season 8 combines some features from numerous other weapons that were already into the game. The result? It's good but it could use a buff. The weapon's fire rate is quite low so anyone that gets near your face will melt you before you can react. The charged shots are cool but the damage feels lacking. It's somewhat similar to the G7 Scout which is currently not a great choice.
