Note: Fortified head shot damages may vary ±9. This is due to uncertainty over whether Fortified reduces non rounded or rounded damage numbers. This difference is negligible on non pellet based weapons.

Special Note:[]

  • Non rounded, non Fortified Level 1 -> Level 3/4 Helmet damages are 7.2/6.9/6.75 respectively. They all round to 7 dmg/pellet, 63 dmg total.
  • Non rounded, Fortified No Helmet -> Level 3/4 Helmet damages are 6.375/6.12/5.865/5.7375 respectively. They all round to 6 dmg/pellet, 54 dmg total.
  1. Shotgun damage is calculated per pellet.
    Correct: 6 dmg/pellet x 1.25 = 7.5 dmg/pellet ≈ 8 dmg/pellet, resulting in 72 damage total.
    Incorrect: 54 dmg x 1.25 = 67.5 dmg ≈ 68 dmg.
  2. 2.0 2.1 Body Shield.svg Body Shields and Evo Shield.svg Evo Shields increase hitpoints.
  3. Fortified.svg Fortified decreases damage taken by 15%.

Lore[]

The EVA-8 Auto is a pump-action/automatic shotgun from the Frontier War designed for extra-vehicular activity and to operate in zero gravity environments. The weapon was developed from the ground up by Wonyeon Interstellar to provide the IMC Orbital Guard Raiding Parties (aka Shipwreckers) with devastating CQB firepower. The EVA-8 has also been widely used by the Frontier Militia and Badlands Pirates, often acquiring the weapons by raiding remote supply convoys to the Outer Colonies. It is now used in the Apex Games where legends in need of massive firepower during the first contact can look no further than the EVA-8.[1]

There are a total of 66 weapon skins for the EVA-8 Auto: 12 Legendary, 10 Epic, 28 Rare and 16 Common.
