The Pro Guide to Becoming an Apex Legends Master

Since its release in February 2019, Apex Legends has been a favorite among many gamers. Many have become dedicated to the game and want to learn to master the game. There are many ways to do this, and many websites offering apex legends hacks to help you become a true master. Since the game’s release, there have been many YouTube channels and pages dedicated to attempting to master the game.  With over 50 million daily players, it can be hard to master the game and to stand out.

 

Weapons

Picking up the right weapon when you drop into Apex Legends can massively change the outcome of your game. The aim of the game is to win so do not be afraid to use the best weapons in the meta. You will see a lot of people criticizing certain weapons on places like Reddit, but do not let that stop you from picking those up. It makes a huge difference to your game so even if it is a lower-class weapon, definitely try and find and master those. Go for the Kraber, the R-99, and do not be scared to use them on your opponents.  Despite being extremely rare and only firing unique ammunition that cannot be replenished, the mastiff shotgun boasts some of the best weapon stats in the game. With an insane kickback due to the sheer power of the weapon, the Mastiff will tear your opponents to shreds if they dare come too close.

If you have managed to get your hands on this lucrative weapon (try looking in supply drops for the legendary Mastiff), you will be surprised just how capable it is of reaching close to mid-range targets. With the ability to deal 288 damage in a single shot, the four-round weapon can easily clear an entire room with ease when placed into the right hands. Additionally, with the Prowler Burst BDW, this 5-round burst SMG not only features an insanely fast fire rate but also has the highest damage capabilities in the SMG category. When placed into the right hands, the Prowler can deal some incredibly significant damage. This is especially true when fitted with extended mags, a nice scope, and the Selectfire Receiver Hop-Up which will allow the weapon to act just like any other SMG. Topping the SMG category, this P90 style SMG is an easy choice for those looking for the perfect close-quarter weapon.

 

Hints and tips

Unlike most battle royale games, Apex Legends offers plenty of unique characters that have their own strengths, weaknesses, and game-changing abilities. As a result, choosing a team that has good synergies with one another will drastically increase your ranked win rate. It may be tempting to instantly lock in your favorite legend, but sometimes it can be worth taking a look at your current comp and picking someone that will compliment your team’s win condition. For example, pairing Bangalore with Caustic enables you to barrage your foes with a haze of noxious gas and smoke, reducing their visibility and giving you plenty of opportunities to both initiate firefights and dissuade them. Throw in Bloodhound and you have a comp that can also see through this deadly veil of smoke, making it incredibly easy to obliterate your vision impaired enemies.

 

Team Synergy

There are plenty of characters that work well together, so take a look at their abilities and pick a comp that synergizes well with one another. Whether you are playing with a group of random people or with a premade team, communication is the key to success in any game of Apex Legends. While Respawn’s ping system may be incredibly robust, it is even better when paired with actual voice communication. You may be able to get by with simple pings in the lower tiers of ranked play, but once you get into the Platinum and Diamond ranks, you will notice how fluid team movements are.

Being able to successfully breach enemy defenses, coordinate, and discussing various strategies is incredibly important, so do not be afraid to jump on voice comms and tell your teammates what you are thinking. Being able to instantly tell your allies what your intentions are, and stating whether you can and cannot commit to a firefight can greatly reduce any frustrating losses that could easily be avoided. It may be beneficial to play with team members that you already know or are friends with, this way you know each other’s strategies and can discuss these as a team. Apex Legends’ Respawn Beacons exist for a reason, so even when the odds are stacked against you, it is important to never give up and try your best. Having a full squad in the late-game is highly advantageous and you will be able to mop up any foes who are determined to play the solo game.

Battle of the Arenas: What is the Best Battle Royale Game On the Market

In 2012 the world was introduced to the Hunger Games movie. Based on a series of extremely popular books, it saw people taken from their numbered districts and placed inside a massive arena. They were then forced to engage in the last man standing deathmatch. A brutal premise that is often attributed to the Hunger Games. But the first instance of this trope was actually from the 2003 manga, Battle Royale.

You may notice this manga has the same name as the gaming genre based upon the same principle. And for good reason. All those games have their history firmly rooted in that manga. Today, the battle royale genre is one of the most popular gaming genres out there. So we are going to take a look at some of the most popular Battle Royale games on the market and try to decide which one is best.

Fortnite

Fortnite is easily the most popular and well-known battle royale game on the market. It has been at the center of numerous controversies and scandals surrounding their own legal battles with companies such as Apple, and the issue of rampant child addiction to the game.

But all of that aside it remains very fun and easy to access the game. The battle royale formula is shaken up a bit by the inclusion of the ability to build structures as you play. This allows for greater tactical decisions and lots of creative freedom as well. The game also allows players to make their own game modes and even have their own skin submissions sold in store.

The game remains popular with its crossover events, recently crossing over with the marvel comics and now The Mandalorian as well. It seems Fortnite is not going to slow down anytime soon, and we are more than happy with that.

PUBG

PUBG is often seen as the main competitor of Fortnite or is used to be. The two games were night and day. While their basic premise was the same, their styles and tones were different. PUBG takes a much more realistic and gritty approach to the genre. No building or cartoon characters. Just real guns, environments, and tools. And the community has plenty of working pubg cheats and aimbots from veterancheats to give you an edge against the more professional players.

This appeals much more to the audience that enjoys traditional shooters such as CoD and Battlefield. But in recent years PUBG has started to dwindle. Mainly due to the fact its creator, PlayerUnknown, has been involved in numerous PR issues and scandals for his horrible behavior. We wouldn’t be surprised if the game fades into obscurity very soon.

Fall Guys

A vastly different take on the genre. Fall Guys blew up at the start of 2020. Taking inspiration from shows such as Ultimate Ninja challenge and Total Wipeout, the game is presented as a TV show where the Bean shaped people must compete for crowns. Only one can be the victor in the end.

The game is wholesome fun. No shooting or killing, just a series of randomized mini-games that sees more and more players eliminated each round. This game has broadened the market for battle royale games and shown companies what can be done with the genre with a little creative thinking and flair for design. The game is now into its third season and we cant wait to see what it does next.

CoD: Warzone

As we said before, PUBG was the place CoD players went when they wanted to play a Battle Royale mode. But COD: Warzone is the final nail in the coffin of PUBG. Now CoD players have their own Battle Royale mode that is, by all accounts, fantastic.

The game features some truly breath-taking environments with lots of places to hide and explore. Paired with CoD’s signature gun-play and loadout systems, people can take their favorite loadout into battle and test their mettle against one-hundred other players.

 

The Winner

It is difficult to pick a definitive winner. If we went off player-based and community engagement, then Fortnite would win simply based on the fact that its player base is boosted by the younger crowd. But if we looked at player satisfaction we would argue that CoD: Warzone is the current champion of the Battle Royale Genre.
