Fastest time-to-kill weapons in XDefiant, ranked

Often, first-person shooter players put time-to-kill at the top of their priority lists for what makes a weapon better. While how fast a weapon kills is not the end all be all, it’s a good place to start.

Time-to-kill refers to how long it takes to kill an enemy with a specific weapon. All weapons have different time-to-kill figures and can also vary based on missed shots and which part of the body you hit. Hitting headshots does extra damage, but players won’t hit every headshot perfectly, leading to skewed numbers. Those speeds are further skewed in XDefiant, because the Echelon faction in gives users 125 health points instead of 100 and the Cleaners faction has a passive ability that makes weapons do more damage.

Our list ignores the faction abilities and applies a combination of different shots to determine an average time-to-kill speed for every weapon. These numbers aren’t set in stone but are a good baseline to determine which weapons are stronger than others.
