New to Apex Legends? Don’t worry, we have you covered in this guide.
Apex Legends is yet another entry in the popular Battle Royale genre, and it may possibly be the first ever Battle Royale game for many newcomers. In order to help out newcomers, we are going to list out some of the best tips and tricks that will hopefully help you in achieving success.
Know The Color of the Loot Boxes: Once you kill a player, they will drop loot. The rarity of that loot is indicated by its color. So, keep note of the color while you loot other player’s gears, attachments and more.
Strategically Use The Respawn Beacons, Hot Zones And Jump Towers – The in-game map is not only filled with varied locations, but it also houses three map objects that can drastically change the course of your match. Use the Respawn Beacons to bring back downed players to action, Jump Towers, as the name suggests, allows you to fly in the air and get back to the ground. And lastly, Hot Zones will give you rare loot but the location of the zone is randomized.
Best Played With Friends – Apex Legends is best played with friends. The game doesn’t provide a solo option so it’s best to tag along with friends. This will seriously help you in planning and strategizing as you take out other squads.
Select Your Character Carefully – There are 8 characters in the game, each with their own special abilities/skills which are divided into three categories: Ultimate, Tactical and Passive. Note that each squad can’t have the same character so yes, no duplicates are allowed. And most importantly, you should select the Character that matches your playstyle.
Stick Close To Your Squad – Apex Legends puts major emphasis on squad communication. If you are planning to stay away from your team and go out all alone and guns blazing, chances are you won’t survive. Stick close to your squad and combine squad abilities. By doing this your chances at surviving will be much higher.
There Is No Fall Damage: An intricate but a nice feature in Apex Legends is that no player will take fall damage. This will allow you to pull of some crazy moves on your enemy players. So, unlike in some other Battle Royale games where you take fall damage if you fall down from a higher place, Apex Legends totally negates that mechanic.
Know Your Map: It goes without saying this: You can’t possibly think to win matches if you are not well versed with the game’s map. The Kings Canyon is a massive playground which is filled with different kinds of buildings, which in turn is hiding various gears and items. Play more and more in the map to get and understanding of how this area is designed as this will go a long way in not only winning matches but also earning gear when you desperately need one.
