Curious to know what weapons were used most in the ALGS 2023 Split 2 Playoffs? We’ve got you covered.

Apex Legends Global Series, or ALGS, is Apex’s biggest official tournament hosted by EA. After two successful years, ALGS is running its third consecutive event of 7 Million USD.

The ALGS tournament usually runs throughout the year. The event is also divided into different stages, where teams from all over the world participate. These teams then go through never-ending battles and hurdles through these stages to reach the ultimate ALGS championship stage.

Before the championship, two more big LAN events are held to determine how many teams will go to the ALGS Championship. The second ALGS Playoffs of this year just ended recently, and the teams from all over the world fought valiantly. However, only one team, DarkZero, secured first place and won the ALGS 2023 Split 2 Playoffs.

Similar to Legend choices, the weapon meta also plays an important role in Apex Legends. The ALGS is not an exception. Professional Apex players mostly used meta weapons that were strongest during the ALGS 2023 Split 2 Playoffs.

Prowler remains the best weapon in the ALGS 2023 Split 2 Playoffs. A total of 846 eliminations were made with this burst-fire SMG. Other popular SMGs like CAR, R-99, and Volt are in 3rd, 4th, and 6th positions in terms of kills. At the time of the tournament, the R-99 was in crafter, which is also a reason why Prowler was used more than the R-99. Otherwise, these two SMGs might have equally distributed the kills and playtime.

Despite sitting at number 2 position, Nemesis was the most used weapon of the tournament. This newly released Energy auto rifle had a cumulative playtime of about 82 hours, more than twice the Prowler’s playtime. As Nemesis is an Assault Rifle, players mostly utilized this gun to shoot at long range throughout the tournament. So, it makes sense that the total kill count is less than the total damage dealt.

The second most popular Assault Rifle was the Flatline. With 192 kills and 29 hours of playtime, this auto AR sits in 5th position on the list. Due to the R-301 nerf, this once-popular Assault Rifle only resulted in 71 total kills in the ALGS Split 2 Playoffs.

At the bottom of the list, Rampage was used only once, resulting in 1 kill in the tournament. The Devotion, P2020, Mozambique, and RE-45 were the least used weapons. All of these mentioned weapons caused a total of 18 kills in the event.
