Apex Legends Season 8 introduced a ton of new content to the game. From the new legend Fuse to the obliterated version of Kings Canyon, there’s a ton of fresh aspects for fans to enjoy and explore.
Although, perhaps the most intriguing piece of content in Season 8 is the 30-30 Repeater. A new rifle in Apex Legends, the Repeater is an old-fashioned weapon that fits in the ground loot pool nicely. A mix between the G7 Scout and a bolt-action rifle, fans are already enjoying their time with the 30-30 Repeater.
However, one of the bigger questions fans have is regarding the best secondary weapon to use alongside the Repeater. Since it’s unlike any other weapon in Apex Legends, there’s some confusion as to what should players pair with the new rifle.
The best secondary weapon with 30-30 Repeater

The most unique aspect of the Repeater is that it needs to be reloaded after every shot. The reload process doesn’t take a huge amount of time but it is something that needs to be taken into account whenever you enter a gunfight.
Also, the rifle has the built-in ability to charge up each shot, similar to how the Triple Take acts with the Precision Choke. While this isn’t the best gameplay method to use in a close-up engagement, it’s extremely useful when firing from long-range.

That said, the best weapon to use with the 30-30 Repeater is something that can deal damage at close range. While the EVA-8 Auto or Mastiff Shotguns are solid choices, we believe the Spitfire is the most logical and deadliest option.

In Season 8, Respawn Entertainment introduced the Gold Magazine, which gives your guns extra ammo while also reloading holstered weapons. Though this attachment is great for any weapon, the Spitfire, given its maximum ammo capacity, benefits the most from having it.
Of course, you still need to find the Gold Mag throughout a match of Apex Legends. But even if you don’t, the Spitfire can deal significant damage up close and at medium range, providing another benefit that a Shotgun can’t. Pairing this with the long-range prowess of the 30-30 Repeater is an ideal set-up in Season 8.
