Apex Legends 30-30 Repeater Weapon Guide
Respawn Entertainment introduced the new 30-30 Repeater Rifle to the loot pool in Apex Legends Season 8, and this weapon can be a great choice if you know how to use it.
Apex Legends Season 8 is here, and Respawn have brought a ton of new changes in the battle royale. Kings Canyon has been completely reformed, and a new character named Fuse has been added to the roster.
Fuse wields his trusty 30-30 Repeater Rifle, which is capable of dishing out some serious damage at medium-range. This can be an exemplary weapon choice if you know how to use it, so it’s important that you play your cards right.
That’s why we’ve prepared a few tips to keep in mind, as well as some ideal attachments to use with this rifle.
Fire the 30-30 Repeater from a distance
The first thing you should know is that the 30-30 Repeater is not a great weapon to use in close-quarters combat. As we mentioned before, the gun is effective at medium range, and you can keep an SMG or Assault Rifle as your secondary for when you’re surrounded.
We also recommend that you don’t equip this lever-action rifle during long-range combat, as the slow travel speed of the bullets will cause them to miss their targets at times. The most efficient strategy is to keep your enemies at a moderate distance.
The weapon shares similarities with the Longbow and G7 Scout and is reliable due to its power along with its rate of fire. However, there is room for improvement in certain areas, and you can get that done with a few attachments.
Attach the Extended Mag
While the 30-30 Repeater has an impressive fire rate, its slow reload time leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily, you can reduce the number of times that can become a hassle by adding an extended mag to your weapon.
You can see the number of rounds each mag rarity will give you below:
- Stock: 6 rounds
- White Mag: 8 rounds
- Blue Mag: 10 rounds
- Purple/Gold: 12 rounds
Generally, you’ll get the best results by finding Purple and Gold mags since those are the rarest kind in Apex Legends. However, these aren’t always easy to find early on during a match, so you’ll have to make do with a Blue Mag.
However, having an Extended Mag 30-30 Repeater while slow down reload time even further, so you should find some cover to hide behind if you’re running low on ammo.
Which Optics to put on the 30-30 Repeater
You can equip the following scopes onto the rifle:
- 1x Holo
- 1x HCOG “Classic”
- 2x HCOG “Bruiser”
- 1x-2x Variable Holo
- 3x HCOG “Ranger”
- 2x-4x Variable AOG
30-30 Repeater damage stats
As we mentioned earlier, this weapon is capable of dishing out some impressive damage to your enemies if you use it correctly. You can maximize the amount of pain you deal by charging the rifle in bursts.
You can take a look at the weapon’s stats below:
Make the most of the 30-30 repeater’s charge
Charging the weapon for every single shot is not a good idea, as you would constantly slow yourself down and leave you vulnerable to enemy attacks. Slowing down your rate of fire is a dangerous tactic, so you’ll have to make the most of every charge.

One useful strategy is to fire a couple of shots at your opponent, and then charge the final one until it turns blue before firing again. This will disorient your opponents, and that last shot can boost your damage by 35% per hit.
That covers everything you need to know about Fuse’s 30-30 Repeater, and it’s now up to you to decide if you’re going to make the most of this powerful weapon.
