Apex Legends Season 4: EVA-8 Weapon Guide - Tips And Tricks For Apex Legends

The EVA-8 is a rapid-fire shotgun, and we've got all the information on how to get the most out of it.

Apex Legends Season 4 is here, and the game is growing in content and popularity day by day.

While the Sentinel may be the newest weapon to be added, today we’re looking at the EVA-8 Shotgun.

The EVA-8

One of the game’s most popular (and common) shotguns, the EVA-8 is a beast for interior fighting with it being fully automatic.

Here’s our guide for the shotgun.

Where to Find The EVA-8

The EVA-8 is a very common weapon, meaning you can find it anywhere.

That’s good because it excels in early-game confrontations with unshielded players.

 

What Attachments And Ammo Does It Take?

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.

A hop-up was added in Season 3 called the Double Tap Trigger, which means the shotgun can fire two quick shells in quick succession with a single trigger press.

 

EVA-8 Tips And Tricks

The EVA-8’s viability stems from the sheer rate at which the gun unloads, with the shotgun bolt and Double Tap Trigger hop-up making it an incredibly fast-firing weapon.

The trouble, therefore, is the amount of ammo it holds, with just eight shells in its non-expandable magazine.

With that in mind, keep the EVA-8 stocked up and try and pick enemies off one-by-one in close-range firefights. That means you can reload between kills and find cover for when you’re unable to shoot.
