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.
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.
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.
