Help me get better at Apex Legends…please

Apex Legends! The hottest game on the block!  It makes battle royale fun again and I don’t even need a headset to communicate with my team when playing it. It’s just a pity then, that I suck at it. Over on the weekend, a friend of mine (who totally wasn’t a sixth-scale Ben Affleck Batman figure frozen in terror at the thought of having to live eternity on my shelf) asked me if I had any tips for getting better at Respawn Entertainment’s game.

Talk about the blind leading the blind, am I right? Only in this case, it’s more like the blind leading the blind over a cliff and into a chasm that happens to be filled with acidic-lava, scorpions and people who tweet my own jokes back to me on social media. Thing is, I’d genuinely like to put together an article to help people up their game in Apex Legends.

Naturally, I’m the wrong person to ask for advice on this, in much the same way that I’m the last person that you should ever ask for help on getting something off the top shelf. So I need some tips. Specifically, I’m going to crowdsource and take full credit for these tips from you lot. So let’s put our heads together for some collective wisdom (ouch, not that hard)

If you’re interested that is. So if you legitimately do have some tips on how to git gud or even some obvious advice, I kind of want to hear it. I want to sift through your experience, your knowledge and your tips. And while I’m well aware that the most obvious tip for being good at Apex Legends is to make certain that Guild is on your friends list, I want some ideas that may be controversial, out of the box and even creative.

So sound off below, and let’s make something awesome.

  1. You know what would help the most?

    People actually playing as a team instead of just running off.

    The amount of times I’ve said “Oh, you fucking bastards” less than 3 min in…

    TEAMWORK people – It’s not that hard.

    Oh, and go for the head.

    The best thing to do is shoot the enemy, but then also dont get shot by them. I see the pros do it all the time.

      The other thing I found out which helps is not running out of ammo.

      That generally leaves you looking like Swiss Cheese.

    Using aim trainers helps a lot with things like this, but in reality the best advice is to look at the best players and try emulate their gameplay. Their movement, weapon/gear choices, how they manage the tempo of BR, when they back off, etc. Twitch is a good resources for this as well. Just don’t look at the streamers who’re just playing for fun, look at the streamers who take the game seriously.

        Pun intended? 😛

        You’re welcome. Osu! is a tactic used by MOBA players for high accuracy and APM, and these sorts of tools help gamers get better in general. Muscle memory is invaluable.

    1. Pick Wraith, Lifeline, Bangalore, Mirage or Bloodhound. They have noticeably smaller hitboxes. Also, if you play Lifeline, collect all the ult accellerant you can and spam those supply drops.
    2. Stick together and attack as a team where possible.
    3. Gear up properly. It makes a massive difference.
    4. Prioritise downing the remaining enemy team members over finishing downed ones. Spending bullets and trying to break through their knockdown shield leaves you vulnerable and out of ammo if you get jumped. If you down all 3 members they die anyway, no extra bullets needed, and if a teammate comes to revive them they’re easy targets.
    5. Know when to engage. Spot an enemy a long way away? Ping them, but don’t shoot. That just let’s everyone know where you are. Get into a better position and then go for it.
    6. If you’re dying immediately all the time, try dropping in quieter areas. I quite like Swamps and Repulsor.

    Good luck!

    Simple!

    Step 1: Exit Apex Legends
    Step 2: Load up the Fortnites
    Step 3: Achieve an Epic Victory Royale! Don’t forget a celebratory floss!

    Some tips from me. Im level 81, have about 800 kills and 47 wins.

    1) always land within 10 feet of your teammates – 3 guys with fists vs one guy with a gun – fists will always lose.

    2) always pick up thermite grenades – if you are in a tight pickle early game and u run out of bullets and can stay close to an enemy. Throw the thermite right at your feet. You will burn and drop, but so will he and ur teammates can do the rest.

    3) when you hear a fight, and decide to go to it. Keep an eye on the kill feed. U can see how many teams are engaging. Once two or three people are downed – push hard. The ones who are left will either be looting or healing

    4) on that note – always make sure u dont get caught between the two other teams. Always get one of them from behind – from high ground if possible

    5) once you get to 3 teams remaining. Always stay on the edge of the circle and wait for the other two to engage. If ypu HAVE to engage. Fire a few shots and try to reposition – the 3rd team will always come.

    6) easiest way to win is to wait fir the last two teams to start fighting. Wait for 2 guys to be downed in killfeed then push hard.

    7) play fast and fight as much as possible – this is the best way to get the best loot – you dont want to survive all game and then be one of the last three teams with level 2 armor – 3 wellplaced shots with a peacekeeper or a single tap from mastif will take u out.

      I did manage to knock down the kill leader (fully armed) in one match with my bare fists because I had nothing, so sometimes fists do win!

    1. Keep track of your ammo, there isn’t enough ammo in the game
    2. Make sure your two guns use different ammo
    3. When you’re about to pickup ammo if you see a gun outline on the info panel you have a gun for that ammo
    4. Don’t touch the mozambique
    5. Always have a shotgun for face to face battles
    6. Get a friend to carry you

      All of this! And learn the different guns with their attachments, some like the Havoc / Devotion + Turbocharger hop-up changes everything.

        I still get confused about all the attachments. But if I get a decent shotgun and a Spitfire I’m golden

          Same. Most of the time I’ll just grab and run and hope for the best. Extended clips and stabilizers help a lot though.

    Just hit level 61 this weekend, got a pretty high kill rate and decent win rate. There is so much to tell, a disqus comment won’t cut it.

    Hit me up if you want to play some and I’ll walk you through some of the most rewarding mechanics (PC). 😉

    I think most useful points have already been covered in the comments, but I will say this….

    1.) Don’t stray too far from teamies!
    2.) Try not to engage unaware enemies unless the rest of your team is in a position to support you.

    I am just an additional ammo bag for my team mates. Once I die they loot my body for ammo and guns.

    1. Learn to play well with at least three of the 8 heros, I found doing the PS4 trophy for being champion with 8 heros help in this regard.
    2. Never land more than 5 seconds away from other team members
    3. Always find a weapon first and then other loot
    4. Keep on long distance and one close/medium range weapon
    5. in beginning do not avoid fire fights, you wont be champion if you avoid fire fights and not get use to them
    6. When you down an enemy, do not finish them off, make sure first his team is not close by.
    7. Heal your downed team mates only after fire fight is finished, else you can get killed while reviving
    8. Keep the small shield cells on call so you can quickly duck into hiding and get quick 25 added to health
    9. If you downed an enemy, hover around as his team mates might want to revive him. stay out of his sight so he cannot spot you ofcourse
    10. Slide everywhere, if you have a small decline, slide down it, more difficult to shoot you, and while sliding, you can shoot people all around you, most people do not realise you can turn around and shoot behind you
    11. Make your self familiar with at least 2 or 3 areas where you can try to always land
    12. If you respawn a fallen team member and there is no immediate weapons around, drop your secondary weapon and some health for them.
    13. If you hear a fire fight, go towards it, always best to be the 3rd team into a fight, easy pickings as other teams are now low on health and resources

    I have also noticed, that once your team mates realise you are a productive member they tend to hang around as much as possible.

    If you see Caustic’s gas traps, and this helped me some, just shoot the base of the trap under the red line. It deflates the trap, and you will not get damaged by the trap, also will save your team members.
