Whatever game you’re playing it’s only natural to want to improve and be the best you can be. Of course, ideally you’ll be the best of the best, but this isn’t always possible.
Apex Legends is classed as a free-to-play Battle Royale game where you’re competing for glory, fame, and fortune against players across the world.
You choose your character according to their abilities and you can choose your own squad, up to 3 players can team up. Then all you have to do is beat all the other teams!
Sounds simple, but every layer is trying to be the best they can be, that’s why you need these 6 simple ways to improve your game and claim the victory you deserve.
Covering The Ground
The only way you’re going to beat an enemy squad is by getting close to them, you need to be hitting them before they even know you’re there!
However, to do this you’re going to need to know exactly how your character moves, it’s not enough to just know the controls. You need to know how your character moves, when others will be able to see or hear you, and how far you can get without giving your position away.
Don’t forget the enemy squad is hunting you.
Covering ground won’t just help you to locate and destroy the enemy squads, it will also help you to stay ahead of the competition.
One of the best tactics is to slide. This means you slide for a second, then jump and sprint for 3-4 seconds, before repeating. You’ll find you can transverse the map much faster, helping you to identify where everything is and find your enemies.
It’s also a good idea to learn how to bounce off the walls. This will increase your speed, making it more difficult for other squads to locate you or pick you off.
Don’t forget that if you’re doing some looting you should be strafing at the same time, this will reduce the risk of you being taken out by sniper fire.
Choose Your Weapon
Sure, the machine gun looks like it’s going to take out a lot of people, even if you’re not a great shot. But, it’s also noisy and will attract a lot of unwanted attention. That said, at close range, the R-99 is generally the best weapon for the job.
You need to consider your preferred approach and choose the weapon that best suits your tactics, they are not all created equal.
If you prefer distance work find a Charge rifle, it has a laser and the bullet won’t drop when fired, making you pretty accurate.
However, of equal importance is knowing how to use your chosen weapons. This means practicing as much as possible and knowing the right order of use. Strong distance weapons are essential to damage body armor, you can then follow up with your best close-range weapons.
Shut The Door!
If you don’t shut the door you don’t know who will be behind you or waiting for you while you’re looting. It’s easy to forget as you press forwards but, closing or obstructing doorways can help to keep you alive.
It’s worth noting that kit can be left to block an entrance, just make sure that its kit you can manage without. It’s also possible to booby-trap the door with a gas trap or an interception pylon.
Don’t forget that if you’re inside a building you probably want to heal, even something as simple as sitting in front of the door will stop the enemy from walking straight in, That can give you the vital seconds you need to heal.
Shields are a great way of avoiding damage to your body. In fact, a shield doesn’t prevent you from getting damaged, it actually increases your health rating, meaning you’ll take longer to die.
But, the key thing to remember when recovering or surviving is to regenerate your shield first. The common shied cell takes just 3 seconds to use, the common syringe for your own health takes 5 seconds. By doing the shield first you’ll be 2 seconds faster and this may just make the difference between life and death when fighting an enemy.
Start The Fight
The ultimate aim of the game is to be the last squad standing. This leans you can do a certain amount of navigating to avoid other squads and allow them to pick each other off.
However, if you never practice fighting you’re not going to have the skills you need to win, you’re going to have to take part in the final fight! In short, the team with the most fighting experience is most likely to win the game.
You may not realize it but the game will actually reward you for being aggressive, find the other squads and start the fight, just make sure you have healing capabilities and a withdrawal plan. In this way, you can survive to fight another day and become better at fighting.
You’ll need to be if you want to win the game.
You’re a Team
Before you even start playing remember that you’re a team, the better the three of you work together, the more chance you’ll have of success. This means knowing the strengths and weaknesses of each team member and playing accordingly.
Perhaps most importantly, you need to make sure the lines of communication stay open at all times. If you make a joint decision stick to it, going off by yourself is not going to help you or your team, the game isn’t designed this way!
Of course, all three squad members must be dedicated to winning fights and improving, if your teammates are just doing it for fun you’re never going to have the support you need. If you’re not sure about the level of commitment of your team members and they’re not in the same room as you, you can always use an app like mspy to track their location and remind them of their commitment to the team and the game.
Apex Legends is not an easy game, you’ll be fighting players with much more experience but, perseverance, practice, and the right mindset can help you to improve. With a little luck and plenty of good tactics, you could end up the only squad left standing!
