Although many players may think success is based on the Legends, you’re using or even the weapons, some simple gameplay tips could elevate your skill and help you get better at Apex.

How to get better at Apex Legends

Teamwork makes the dream work

Apex Legends is a team-based shooter, meaning you will find the most success when playing with your teammates and taking down enemies through combining your shots and abilities.

Players have a lot of health and shield in Apex Legends, so being coordinated with your teammates will help when it comes to taking down enemies fast.

A lot of the time, winning a fight can be based on which team gets the first down, so again, making sure you’ve coordinated with your team by communicating and using the Ping system is so important.

Being smart with cover

Another critical tip for getting better at Apex Legends is being smart with cover. The maps in Apex Legends offer a variety of terrain for players to battle on which can sometimes be close, medium, or long-ranged engagements.

One consistent thing is the availability of cover, no matter where you are on the map. Whether it’s crouching to hide behind a divot in the terrain or taking cover behind a rock, vehicle, or tree, using cover to reduce incoming damage is vital.

Great players will make sure they are always nearby cover so that after they get their shots off, they can easily slip behind something. Further, you can also be smart with cover by juking enemies out, making them guess which side you will come out from and when you will pop out again.

Firing Range

The Firing Range is an excellent tool for players to get better at not only accuracy and controlling recoil but also movement and IQ. In the Firing Range, you have the freedom to check out all the guns, their attachments, as well as every Legend and their abilities.

Get to know everything there is to know about these things, as having as much information and IQ about the game is essential for getting better. As they say, practice makes perfect!

Studying great players

Finally, studying great players is another essential tip for becoming better at Apex Legends, as this will help develop your IQ.

Great streamers like NICKMERCS or iiTzTimmy are great for getting to grips with the speed and mechanical skill needed to become an outstanding player.

Further, watching the ALGS will also help you get better at Apex Legends, as watching how teams move, how they communicate, and what positions they take up will help you on your way.

That’s all the top tips we have for getting better at Apex Legends. Make sure you take these tips in and think about them next time you play. Check out our piece on Wattson’s Tactical ability being worse than the other Defensive Legends.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.



Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator
