Our Apex Legends Season 13 weapon tier list is here to break down which of the guns are the best to use now that the meta has been shifted once again with the launch of Respawn Entertainment's latest major balancing update.

With the Saviors patch, although we didn't get a new firearm, there were a handful of major nerfs and buffs to a wide variety of meta options in the existing loot pool. As such, here is how the weapons stack up at the start of Apex Legends: Season 13 Saviors.

Apex Legends: Saviors Weapon Rankings

S Tier

Kicking off the list, the Kraber .50-Cal Sniper, Volt SMG, G7 Scout and Mastiff Shotgun all get a free pass to the S Tier considering that they make up this season's Supply Drop rotation. After the helmet buffs and its own headshot nerf, the Kraber .50-Cal Sniper is perhaps as weak as it's ever been, which, of course, isn't saying much considering how broken it's long been. With Respawn actually pulling the M600 Spitfire out of the Supply Crate rotation, this will by far be the biggest storyline to watch in Season 13. Although the Spitfire was nerfed in a handful of ways, including no longer having a barrel attachment slot, it will be almost impossible to stop in the hands of high-rank mouse and keyboard players. Finishing off the list is the VK-47 Flatline, Peacekeeper and the ever-popular R-301 Carbine and C.A.R. SMG.

A Tier

  • Rampage LMG
  • Wingman
  • R-99 SMG
  • Prowler Burst PDW
  • Triple Take

These five weapons could easily be considered S Tier to some, but most likely will take some time and actual skill to be good with for most. Despite the LMG nerfs, the Rampage remains a great option for support role players, while each of the other options here also cater toward certain play styles as well.

B Tier

  • Alternator SMG
  • Charge Rifle
  • Hemlok Burst AR
  • Longbow DMR
  • Sentinel

In B Tier are weapons that fare better than average and give you that sense of feeling solid and ready to go after looting for some time. Although they can be used to finish games, there are likely better guns out there for you to depend on.

C Tier

  • Devotion
  • HAVOC Rifle
  • EVA-8 Auto
  • RE-45 Auto
  • Mozambique Shotgun
  • 30-30 Repeater

In the grand scheme of things, these six weapons aren't actually that bad. You can indeed win fights with them if you play your cards right. However, it's probably best to go other routes in your matches than using these. For those willing to give them a shot, the RE-45 Auto and Mozambique can actually be pretty good if you can find the Hammerpoint Rounds Hop-Up for them.

D Tier

  • Bocek Bow
  • P2020

Lastly, in D Tier are two weapons that might be good right off of the drop and in the early game, but can confidently be swapped out as the match goes on.
