It's no secret that weapons can be improved or nerfed in each season of Apex Legends. Your favourite weapon could be the most powerful one in the game, then it can suddenly become one of the weakest. This is why it's very important to learn all you can about them, so you can know when something crucial is changing.
One weapon that has been the recipient of multiple nerfs and upgrades is the Mozambique. This hand-held pistol/shotgun has been a part of the Apex Games since its launch in 2019, but it hasn't always been the weapon that people pick up. However, if you get the right attachments and use the weapon in the right scenario, it can be very useful.
In this guide, we're going to show you the damage stats, attachments, and skins for the Mozambique Shotgun.

The Mozambique has had its fair share of issues. In one season it can be extremely powerful, then in the next, it can be the weapon you run past without a second thought. It doesn't really stand out in Battle Royale, unless you're dedicated to finding the high-tier attachments for it.
However, it's quite useful in the Arenas mode. The Mozambique is one of the guns that are free to equip to your Legend from the weapon shop. The upgrades for it are also quite cheap compared to the other weapons that are available. This means that you increase its power enough for it to take down the other squad in the first or second round. Overall, it's a good secondary weapon, but we recommend using any of the other Shotguns as your main weapon.
There are plenty of weapons for you to find in Apex Legends if Shotguns don't suit you. If you want to try your hand at ranged combat, then check out the Sentinel Sniper Rifle. This weapon is quite forgiving as it deals a lot of damage at its base level. Also, if you want to use an SMG that's powerful but doesn't impact your speed too much, then take a look at our guide to the R-99.
