So I really haven't seen any up to date sets for Apex, and I know it's a subpar weaponskill. I like bringing my sam to tojil, and I would like to see a good set for apex if anyone has one. I've set my sights on a yoichi, but until then I use what I have. ;; Any help is appreciated.

without preludes your hitrate will most likely take away any damage benefit gained vs just using fudo, and preludes are wasted buffs there

if you really want to use it, make sure to wear a decent amount of r.acc

I was hitting about 60% today with it in just my tp gear for shits and gigs. When it did land it would out doing fudo by a few hundred, but if I had a better set maybe it would be better. Who knows man... I'm just trying to do better with my pew pew.

Even during his piercing weak phase, Apex is just sorta ok. These are the sets I use for Bee, so you should be in decent shape for Racc somewhere in the middle.

with SV prelude

with standard DD buffs

A good chunk of the time you're hitting shadows, too. I was able to use a more aggressive hybrid set on runs without brd Sp's and maintain more or less capped accuracy. Also, since you're only using the ranged weaponskill, you need to make sure you're only looking at your apex accuracy.
