Apex Legends Season 5 weapon tier list sees some shakeup at the top, with many changes to weapons of all tiers coming from the Season 5 update.

Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune's Favor follows Loba, a heroic adventurer, on her quest for the Broken Ghost. Some changes for the new season include a new map with a completely different Skull Town area and balance changes to some weapons and legends.

Apex Legends Season 5 Weapon Tier List

S Tier

  • Kraber
  • L-Star
  • Devotion
  • R-99

A Tier

  • Longbow
  • Mastiff
  • Peacekeeper
  • Hemlok
  • Prowler PDW
  • R-301 Carbine
  • G7 Scout
  • Wingman
  • M600 Spitfire

Some might be surprised to find the Matiff in A Tier, considering it was rotated from a care package weapon to a regular weapon for Season 5. Despite its new availability, developers nerfed the gun so much, including reducing its damage per pellet from 18 to 13 and reducing its headshot multiplier from 2 to 1.25, that it had to be dropped one tier in the rankings.

B Tier

  • Havoc
  • Sentinel
  • EVA-8 Shotgun
  • VK-47 Flatline
  • Charge Rifle
  • RE-45
  • Alternator

Alternator made a jump from the extended Season 4 May 2020 weapon tier list due to a change in mag size from 16 to 19. The extended mags changed as well, with Level 1 extended mag now at 22, Level 2 at 25, and Level 3 at 27.

C Tier

  • Triple Take
  • P2020

Leave on the Ground Tier

  • Mozambique
