Apex Legends Factory Issue EVA-8 Shotgun Skin
March 4, 2022: Updated to include new information on attachments and weapon skins.


Your weapons can decide whether you win or lose your match in Apex Legends. Of course, how well your team works together, and how skilled you are will factor into it too. However, you can only hope to survive the chaos of battle if you have weapons that suit your playstyle.

If you're someone who enjoys close-quarters combat, then an SMG or Pistol weapon would be the best one for you. However, if you want a weapon that is good at close-quarters combat and mid-range combat, then you should take a look at a Shotgun. There are a few different Shotguns in the game, but we're going to focus on one that divides opinions.

In this guide, we're going to show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the EVA-8 Auto Shotgun.

EVA-8 Attachments

The EVA-8 is a shotgun, so uses shotgun shells which it fires in the shape of a number “8” – hence the name. You can get a shotgun bolt to increase the fire rate, and optics available include Holo, HCOG, Variable Holo, and the Legendary Digital Threat scope.

  • 1x Holo Classic (Common)
  • 1x-2x Variable Holo (Rare)
  • 2x HCOG Bruiser (Rare)
  • 1x Digital Threat (Legendary)


  • Shotgun Bolt

EVA 8 Skins

At the time of writing, there are a total of 68 weapon skins available for the EVA-8 Auto. This includes 13 Legendary, 10 Epic, 29 Rare, and 16 Common. The prices of the skins range from 30 Crafting Metals (Common) to 1,200 Crafting Metals (Legendary).

EVA 8 Review

The EVA-8’s viability stems from the sheer rate at which the gun unloads, with the shotgun bolt making it an incredibly fast-firing weapon. The trouble, therefore, is the amount of ammo it holds. It can hold only eight shells in its non-expandable magazine. With that in mind, keep the EVA-8 stocked up. It's good at picking off enemies one-by-one in close-range firefights. All you need to do is make sure you find cover when you need to reload between kills.


The EVA-8 Auto is one of the common Shotguns that you can find in Apex Legends, and it can be a great one to pair with a powerful SMG. If you're wondering which weapon would be a good partner for the Shotgun, then take a look at the Alternator SMG. This small weapon packs a punch and is great for fending off enemies while you're on the move. Also, another good partner for the EVA-8 is the C.A.R SMG. The high fire rate of this weapon combined with the fact it uses both light and heavy ammo makes it one of the best on the battlefield.
