Your weapon choice in Apex Legends can decide whether you become the winning squad or if you become the next name taken down by the kill leader. This is why it's extremely important to know what kind of weapons you like, and which ones suit your specific approach to the face-paced battle royale.
Weapons are set into different categories in the game. Those of you who prefer to be knee-deep in the action may lean toward using SMGs. However, those of you who excel at ranged combat may enjoy using the Snipers. Now, not all of the guns in Apex can be found on the ground or picked from the store in Arenas. There's one special sniper rifle that can only be found in a Care Package.
In this guide, we show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the Kraber .50 Cal Sniper.

Kraber .50-cal Damage Stats
Just below you'll find the damage stats for the Kraber .50-cal. Do note these are just the basic damage stats and do not reflect the stats for Legends that have passive effects on some weapons.
|Target||Damage||Shots To Kill: 100HP||150HP||175HP||200HP||225HP|
|Level 1 Helmet||348||1||1||1||1||1|

Kraber .50-cal Attachments
As a care package exclusive, the Kraber doesn’t take any standard attachments – but does come pre-fitted with a nifty scope. The rifle’s in-built optic can switch from six-times magnification to ten-times magnification.
That improved accuracy is important, too, because the gun only comes with twelve shots – four in the magazine, and eight in reserve. Unlike most weapons, you can’t simply grab fresh ammo either, so once you’ve run out of ammo you may as well drop the Kraber.
Kraber .50-cal Skins
At the time of writing, there are a total of 55 weapon skins available for the Kraber. This includes 9 Legendary, 5 Epic, 26 Rare, and 16 Common. The prices of the skins range from 30 Crafting Metals (Common) to 1,200 Crafting Metals (Legendary).

Kraber .50-cal Review
The Kraber is one of Apex Legends’ most powerful weapons. While it can kill with a single headshot, it can down an opponent with a single body shot. Bullets can penetrate enemies, too, so you could potentially hit the jackpot and down a squad in a single bullet. Pair that with the versatile scope, and the Kraber is a force to be reckoned with from mid and long-range.
That said, it can be tricky to use if you're not used to Snipers. The Kraber requires extreme accuracy to be able to take out a moving target and takes time to reload which makes every miss an opportunity for an enemy to counterattack. Also, players will need to de-scope to prep a new round after every shot, meaning it’s not simply a case of peppering a squad from distance.
The Kraber is definitely a weapon that most people scramble to get in Apex Legends. If you want to get your hands on another powerful Sniper, check out our guide on the Charge Rifle. It may be slow to re-load, but it can knock down enemies with ease. However, ranged combat is not for everyone. If you prefer fighting your enemies face to face, check out the Alternator SMG. This weapon has maintained its status as a fan favourite for multiple seasons, and in the guide, we detail why this is.
