How to master the P2020 in Apex Legends: suggestions, damage stats & DPS

The P2020 is hardly something to hold onto in Apex Legends. However, if you are desperate, here are some ways to make the most of the semi-automatic pistol.

We’re not going to gloss over this ⁠ – the P2020 is not a weapon that you would want to keep going for long in Apex Legends. You just came over, it’s on the floor and you need something to fight with.

We encourage you to exchange it as soon as possible. However, there is a way to get the most out of the gun. We have all the tips and tricks you need to know about the P2020 so that you can use it even in difficult situations.

Apex Legends P2020 damage statistics

The P2020 is one of the lowest damage per bullet weapons in the game. However, its damage per second can be one of the highest, especially against unarmored enemies with the Hammerpoint round hop-up.

With only 15 damage per bullet to the body and 23 to the head, it takes almost a full 12-round base magazine to take down an enemy if you click and pray wildly. It gets damaged by practically every weapon in the game as a result. Nevertheless, here are the full damage statistics for the P2020:

body part damage
head 23 (1.5x)
body 15th
leg 14 (0.9x)

P2020 attachments

The P2020 doesn’t have a lot of accessories. It contains your expanded standard magazine as well as a selection of short range riflescopes.

The big best seller, however, is the Hammerpoint Rounds Hop-up. We mentioned it before, but the bonus damage for unarmored enemies is nothing to laugh at other than doubling the weapon’s damage per second. In fact, it’s the only thing that makes the P2020 reasonably viable and a must have.

Good for the first fight

Let’s face it, the P2020 is a last-ditch weapon. You fell, didn’t find anything and you have to start fighting. We’re not going to call this weapon the next big thing because it’s arguably the worst weapon in the game.

It’s better than bare-fisted fighting, however (controversial, but we’re pretty sure). Make sure to get rid of it as soon as possible, but if you are desperate just go Hipfire and click ASAP. It can get its laps through pretty quickly with minimal recoil, so it’s fine in a confined space before the waste sets in.

Use it to take down enemies instead of starting a fight

The P2020 has an upside: if you can find a Hammerpoint lap hop up it can actually do some decent damage as a secondary. Use another weapon to break someone’s armor, then come in and clean up with the P2020.

Hammerpoint rounds deal extra damage to unshielded enemies and can knock someone down in two shots and take out a knocked down enemy super-fast for a cheeky armor swap (or weapon swap) in the middle of a battle. Don’t waste clip-breaking armor just running when it really counts.
