There are a few big choices you need to make in Apex Legends when you start a game. You need to decide which Legend to play as, where your squad lands (if that's your choice), and which weapons you pick up. If you're playing the Arenas mode, you'll need to decide which Legend to play as and which weapons you purchase from the shop.
No matter which mode you pick, you'll always need to pick your weapons. This is why knowing which weapon works for you is important. If you pick a weapon that you know a lot about, understand which attachments work for it, and how it works in different scenarios, you can increase your chance of winning. If you prefer to engage in mid to long-range combat, then we recommend using one of the Marksman Rifles.
In this guide, we're going to show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the G7 Scout Marksman Rifle.

G7 Scout Review
The G7 Scout is a Care Package exclusive, meaning you cannot get it anywhere other than a Care Package dropped by the game (not Lifeline). This does mean that you cannot re-load this weapon as you would with other Marksman Rifles. We recommend that you carefully consider when and how you use your limited amount of shots. The high fire rate in this gun means that if you've got the ability to fire fast, this is almost as effective as any of the fully automatic weapons found in-game. It is also effective over an impressive range of distances. It is not the go-to gun for close-range combat though.
If you want to learn more about another powerful marksman rifle in Apex Legends, then you should check out our Triple Take guide. In it, we detail the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the weapon. The Triple Take is a dangerous weapon, with or without attachments. The distinctive noise it gives off when you fire off a few shots will instill fear into the hearts of your enemies.
