Note: Fortified headshot 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.

  1. Shotgun damage is calculated per pellet.
    Example: the EVA-8's headshot damage is calculated by 7dmg/pellet x 1.5 = 10.5dmg/pellet which rounds to 11dmg/pellet, resulting in 99 damage total. Whereas if EVA-8's total body damage of 63 is multiplied by its headshot multiplier of 1.5, the result is 95 damage which is not equal to its in-game headshot damage of 99.
  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]
