Upon first playing Apex Legends, it can be confusing to understand the difference between attachments. Figuring out which attachments are associated with different weapon categories can be tricky - so here’s a comprehensive guide!

  First off - what are attachments? Attachments are small weapon buffs that you find in game at loot spawns, in loot boxes, care packages, and Lifeline packages. Attachments vary in level based on their color. Grey for common, being the least powerful category, blue for rare, purple for epic, and gold for legendary, being the most powerful. The more heavily equipped your weapon can be, the better it will perform - always strive for epic and legendary weapon attachments!   Extended Magazines:   Light: (P2020, RE-45, Alternator, R-301, R-99, G-7 Scout)   Common: Increases bullet capacity
