Apex Legends Attachments List Guide

We're taking a look at all of the currently available attachments for your guns and weapons in Apex Legends!

Our Apex Legends Attachment List features every currently available attachment for all of your weapons. We've got a list of barrel, magazine, optics (scopes), stocks, and unique hop-up attachments.

Attachments are items that can be added to most weapons in the game. Each specific weapon has a certain amount and type that can be equipped. These attachments can improve recoil, ammo capacity, increase reload speed, increase fire rate, improve handling, and drift. It is very important to have a well-equipped gun as you go into the late game because anyone you face is going to likely have a fully stacked weapon.

For the most part, each attachment has multiple rarities. There's common (white), rare (blue), epic (purple) and sometimes legendary (gold). Common is the lowest and legendary is the highest quality. The higher the rarity of the attachment you have the better it's going to be.

  • Epic: High ammo capacity with fast reloads.

Optic Attachments

Optics give you an improved visual when you are aiming down the sights of your gun. There are variable options that allow you to switch between zoom distances which will give you the ability to use the gun in mid or longer range engagements. Some optics are for specific weapons, they will be listed when this is the case.

1x Holo (All Weapons)

Close range optic.

1x - 2x Variable Holo (All Weapons)

Close range optic with variable zoom.

Stock Attachments

Stocks will upgrade your handling and reduce aim drift. Handling is how fast you can switch between weapons, and aim drift happens when you are looking down sights prior to firing.

Sniper Stock (Sniper)

  • Common: Improves handling and reduces aim drift.
  • Rare: Quicker handling & moderate aim drift reduction.
  • Epic: Fast handling & large aim drift reduction.

Standard Stock (LMG, AR, SMG)

  • Common: Improves handling and reduces aim drift.
  • Rare: Quicker handling & moderate aim drift reduction.
  • Epic: Fast handling & large aim drift reduction.

Hop-Up Attachments

Hop-up attachments are very unique, and are generally specific to each weapon. Most weapons don't have the option for a hop-up, so it's pretty luck based whether you find the right hop-up for the particular gun you are using.

Precision Choke (Triple Take, Peacekeeper)

This attachment fits on a sniper rifle or a shotgun! The Triple Take fires a horizontal shot that spreads across three projectiles which is pretty interesting for a sniper rifle. This will tighten that spread up and bring it more inline with a regular sniper. The Peacekeeper is pretty powerful without this attachment, now you'll have a more concentrated spread that will hit can hit bigger crits from further away.

Reduces projectile spread for compatible weapons.

Selectfire Receiver (Prowler, Havoc)

The Prowler is normally a burst weapon, but with this hop-up attachment you can select between fire modes. The Havoc can also use this, and it allows you to fire a charged shot!

Enables fire select for compatible weapons.

Skullpiercer Rifling (Longbow, Wingman)

This is an interesting attachment because it fits on both a sniper rifle and a pistol.

Increased headshot damage for compatible weapons.

Turbocharger (Devotion, Havoc)

Energy rifles & LMGs are on the slow side, but with this attachment the speed of fire with the Devotion or Havoc makes them a whole lot better.

Reduces autofire spin-up time for compatible weapons.

  1. The Havoc also uses select fire hop-up. Makes it a charged one shot!

    1. Thanks, fixed!

  2. And Havoc can use selective too. Make it a charge based single fire badass laser gun.

    1. Came here to say this…

  3. The turbo charger is for both the devotion and havoc

    1. Thanks, fixed.

  4. there is a golden barrel stabilizer

    1. Thanks, I have never seen anyone have it.

  5. Im finally understands what the difference between Standard stock and barrel stabilizer but when you bring selectfire receiver for Hemlok Burst AR (Assault rifle)? it only works for PDW burst AR into from burst to auto but what about Hemlok? it also has burst but not from burst to auto so please, bring selectfire receiver for hemlok. Thank you for reading the comment

    1. The Hemlok does have an alternative fire already, you just need to hit B on PC. Not sure what it is on Console, check the controller options for the “Toggle Fire Mode” button.

      1. It’s left on the D-pad.
