Apex Legends is currently one of the top battle royale games out there. In fact, the King of Twitch, Shroud recently deemed the game as the best one. The reason behind this is the game’s unique elements such as its fast-paced combat, characters, and more.
The thing about Apex is that it’s really different from other battle royale games such as Fortnite and PUBG. While others offer a normal battle environment, Apex tends to take things fast. One wrong mistake can get you eliminated instantly. If you’re someone who is constantly getting killed again and again, then here are some mistakes that you might be making.
Don’t Choose The Wrong Legend
Choosing the wrong Legend is Apex is possibly the worst thing you can do. There is a reason why Respawn Entertainment has introduced multiple characters with different abilities. They basically want you to choose the one that suits your play style. For instance, if you’re someone who always wants to finish things up quickly, then Octane might be the right choice for you. Similarly, characters like Bangalore, Rampart, Revenant, and Gibraltar are for those who like to play aggressively. Therefore, it is really important to test out all characters and then proceed to learn things about the one you like. Otherwise, you’ll just end up getting killed quickly by your enemies.
Don’t Stay Still
In Apex, you must always stay on the move. If you stay still for a few seconds in the open, chances are you’ll get taken down by an enemy that is far away. The biggest mistake which gets new players killed is that they spend too much time looting death boxes. However, this should not be the case at all as you should grab whatever you can in the first few seconds and then leave the area as quickly as possible. Otherwise, since you can’t see anything while looting a death box, you won’t see your enemy approaching.
Finger Off The Trigger
Another thing that could be getting you killed, again and again, is that you might always engage your enemy. Until and unless you’re a pro player who can handle multiple squads at once, there is no need for you to start shooting at every enemy you see. This is because nearby squads will hear your gunshots and will rush to your location. And trust me, taking on more than one squad in Apex at the same time is a big headache. Your chances of survival drop down to zero, and you won’t even know which opponent hit you. Therefore, keep Surviving till the end a priority as you’ll get plenty of action during the later stages of the game.
Keep Your Health and Shields Up
Some players also forget to keep their health and shield up all the time. This is a mistake that costs them during combat. They basically give their enemy the luxury of taking them down in only a few shots. This is why you should always make sure that your health and shields are full. Even during a gunfight, you should pop up a shield cell whenever you call. This way, your enemy won’t be able to take you down that easily.
Learn How Each Weapon Works
Apex offers all types of weapons including Assault Rifles, SMGs, Shotguns, and Snipers. However, what some players don’t know is that every weapon has a specific spray pattern. This basically means that you must practice as much as you can with a specific weapon to learn how it works. Otherwise, you won’t be able to land your shots accurately, something that will put your enemy at an advantage.
Practice As Much As You Can
Another big mistake new players make is that they don’t spend any time training. Respawn introduced the Firing Range for a reason, but some players ignore going there. However, what they should do is use it as a place to warm up and to learn each and everything about weapons, attachments, and abilities. If you don’t practice enough, then not only will you get killed again and again, but you also won’t be able to go far.
These were some things you should avoid doing if you’re tired of getting killed again and again in Apex Legends. Season 7 is also just around the corner, and it’s the right time to do some practice.
