Even though players dropping into King’s Canyon experiment with any gun they find during the mad scramble at the start of a match, they might not know how exactly the elusive weapon attachments will enhance their loadouts.

In a Reddit post, user ‘iGameYT’ put out a gigantic list of comprehensive stats that break down how every weapon performs, then added a line with their corresponding attachment whether it’s the Turbocharger, Selectfire, Disruptor, Hammerpoint or Skullpiercer.

Along with the stats, the user uploaded a video that, for example, demonstrates how the Turbocharger beefs up the Havoc and Devotion respectively, as they can both get amplified using that Hop-Up.

“What the Turbocharger does for these two guns is either directly diminish or reduce the spin up times for each of these guns,” iGame said. “The Havoc has a half-second delay before it fires its first bullet, same for the Devotion LMG that takes a while to wind up for its full rate-of-fire.”


Even though the heavy rifles have a huge draw to them, the Turbocharger makes them vastly superior than their non-Hop-Up counterparts as the attachment “directly impacts their rate-of-fire of each weapon, thus improving its overall damage output.”

With those stats alone, players can equip themselves with the knowledge for the best weapons to throw a Hop-Up attachment when planning out their loadout for the mid-to-late game in a given Apex Legends match.
