According to most tier lists, weapons are ranked from S through F. S being the highest and F being the weakest. Ironically, the assault rifle is a good weapon in the game, although they are only ranked in the A and B tiers.

The overall ability of the assault rifles in Apex Legends is good, nothing spectacular or overpowered but the weapon is viable. The R-301, Hemlock and Havoc are all classified in the A tier.

All three A tier weapons weapons deal 16-18 damage and have access to a wide array of attachments. The only B tier weapon is the Flatline. This weapon probably falls because of its three-round burst getting outmatched by a lot of sub-machine guns.
