Apex Legends' Arena mode has been quite the popular game to flirt with when wanting to take a break from the battle royale mode. It has just been over two months since the inception of the deathmatch-style game mode which is garnering more and more players to it.

With new updates on the Arena mode, including some leaked information from data miners, the Arena mode is slowly solidifying itself as its own game away from its more popular battle royale matches.

Out of the plethora of guns that are available to the game, there are some that outshine the others, even if they may not have been as good in the battle royale mode. Combine a refreshing take on the guns and an economy, and now players are wondering which weapons are the ones to equip themselves with over the others.

Apex Legends Arena Mode Weapons Tier List July 2021

S-Tier

  • R-301 Carbine
  • Bocek
  • Prowler
  • EVA-8 Auto
  • R-99
  • Kraber

A lot of the play for Arenas is centered around close quarters, and these weapons are the best ones to choose with cost-efficiency and as well of the damage it puts out. On another note, the Bocek and R-301 are arguably the best of its tier and if given the opportunity to, just get either or both of them and it's likely going to convert into a higher win rate.

A-Tier

  • G7 Scout
  • Longbow DMR
  • Havoc
  • Devotion
  • Volt
  • Sentinel
  • Mastiff
  • Spitfire
  • Flatline

These guns can be great if coordination within the team is good, and if the team knows what they're going for. Setting up for a good counter play or a strategized push to close the gap between the two teams is going to be the key when using any of them, however, it's probably best to just get S-tier guns.

B-Tier

  • Peacekeeper
  • RE-45 Auto
  • L-Star
  • Charge Rifle
  • Mozambique
  • Triple Take
  • Hemlok
  • Wingman

These weapons can be great, but a lot of these are sniper rifles that are just not great when enemies are going to close the gap in between. They're too unreliable and players are better off just getting a gun like the R-301 anyways. As for the RE-45, it is undeniably the best secondary a player can have in this mode and is very cost-efficient.

C-Tier

  • P2020
  • 30-30 Repeater
  • Alternator

Much like how last month's tier list went, these guns are just not good and should be not be touched still. There are far better guns than these, and unless someone has found a way to use these guns effectively in Arenas, it's best to just look at more attractive weapons.
