With the brand new release of the free to play Battle Royale game Apex Legends, some people might struggle their first time jumping into the battlefield. All new items and terrain that you will have to learn, as well as keeping an eye on the zone closing in around you. You will need every advantage when moving through the battlefield to keep your head on your shoulders! Here are just a few useful tips to keep handy so that you and your squad can be the champions out there in the battlefield.

 

 

Pick the legend that fits your style of play

When it comes to the battlefield, all the legends are evenly matched in terms of their abilities and firepower. It is up to you to use those powers wisely to outplay your enemies. Pick the legend that is best suited to your play-style and that complements your teams overall Legend picks. Having a balanced team that can watch your back and play off one another is the most lethal!

Whether you want to be your teams shield, your team's support or even be the guy that can get your team from one location to the other, no matter the distance, there is a Legend for you. Gibraltar being the big brute acts as a tank for the team, shielding your squad when they need it the most. Pathfinder is a quirky robot that has a trusty grappling hook that will allow you and your squad to travel over long distances quickly. Finally, for the support, someone like Lifeline can give you the essential health boost that you need to get up and keep fighting! There are many Legends for you to explore, find the one that complements your play-style the most and see those victories role in!

 

 

Stick with your team

We all know how tempting it can be to slap on a red headband, grab a heavy machine gun and go Rambo on these fools. But sometimes it can be better to play a little smarter and in conjunction with your squad. Working together can give you the upper hand over your enemies and gives you the opportunity to pick off stragglers. Combining your abilities with your squad could lead to some epic moments and squad wipes.

It is easy to get overwhelmed by your enemies if you try and Rambo out on your own. Rather be the ones that overwhelm your enemies and make them fear you every round!

Effective comms can win you the game

Delivering critical information to your teammates quickly and accurately can turn the tides of battle in your favor. Using the in game comms system you will always be able to accurately communicate the necessary information to your squad.

Pinpoint certain gear and weapons, highlight enemies at a distance and communicate to your teammates which direction you’re either running to or where you are going to be looting. The more information your team has, the better chances you have to dominate your enemies. Teamwork makes the dream work!

Apex Legends Arena

Understand the battlegrounds

The map is called Kings Canyon and this is where all the matches will take place. The arena is littered with abandoned military camps and juicy loot locations. The terrain can change suddenly from wide open fields to a groggy swamp. Learning how to navigate through these areas will give you the upper hand as you’ll know where certain items could possibly be as well as the amount of cover that you will have in case of a surprise attack!

Always keep in the back of your mind that there is a massive death ring that surrounds the arena. Use this to your advantage so that you do not fall victim for dying outside the zone. Getting immersed into a battle can always distract you from what's happening around you. Remember to always be wary of the death ring!

Loot Locations

Understanding loot

When it comes to the loot, there are different tiers that you can find scattered around the arena. The higher tier your loot, the stronger it is. Certain sections of the map are known for their high tier loot, but be careful. Most of your enemies are going to try and snatch up that loot first in order to secure their spot at the end of the game.

At the start of each match you will spawn in with no weapons and no armour. It is up to you and your squad to choose a location and find some loot. If you drop into hot zones where it is known for its high tier loot, make sure you find a weapon and some armour as quick as possible and get fighting. Coordinate an attack on the enemies around you and steal all their fine loot!

Reviving Teammates

Reviving your teammates

It is going to happen when either you or your teammates get caught off guard and get knocked down. Act quickly and make sure you can get to your teammate, pick them up and keep fighting. If your teammate dies, there is still some hope. Located around the map are respawn locations. Grab your teammates banner and take it to the respawn location and let them jump straight back into the fight. But be warned, when your teammate respawns, they will have no loot at all. It will be a fresh start for them!

These are some handy tips to keep in mind when you are taking on Apex Legends for the first time. Make sure to always stick with your squad and watch their backs. Combine your abilities to destroy your enemies and grab the best loot that you can find! Goodluck out their soldiers.
