Apex Legends is yet another entry in the popular Battle Royale genre, and it may possibly be the first ever Battle Royale game for many newcomers. In order to help out newcomers, we are going to list out some of the best tips and tricks that will hopefully help you in achieving success.

Know The Color of the Loot Boxes: Once you kill a player, they will drop loot. The rarity of that loot is indicated by its color. So, keep note of the color while you loot other player’s gears, attachments and more.

Strategically Use The Respawn Beacons, Hot Zones And Jump Towers – The in-game map is not only filled with varied locations, but it also houses three map objects that can drastically change the course of your match. Use the Respawn Beacons to bring back downed players to action, Jump Towers, as the name suggests, allows you to fly in the air and get back to the ground. And lastly, Hot Zones will give you rare loot but the location of the zone is randomized.

Best Played With Friends – Apex Legends is best played with friends. The game doesn’t provide a solo option so it’s best to tag along with friends. This will seriously help you in planning and strategizing as you take out other squads.

Select Your Character Carefully – There are 8 characters in the game, each with their own special abilities/skills which are divided into three categories: Ultimate, Tactical and Passive. Note that each squad can’t have the same character so yes, no duplicates are allowed. And most importantly, you should select the Character that matches your playstyle.

Stick Close To Your Squad – Apex Legends puts major emphasis on squad communication. If you are planning to stay away from your team and go out all alone and guns blazing, chances are you won’t survive. Stick close to your squad and combine squad abilities. By doing this your chances at surviving will be much higher.

There Is No Fall Damage: An intricate but a nice feature in Apex Legends is that no player will take fall damage. This will allow you to pull of some crazy moves on your enemy players. So, unlike in some other Battle Royale games where you take fall damage if you fall down from a higher place, Apex Legends totally negates that mechanic.

Know Your Map: It goes without saying this: You can’t possibly think to win matches if you are not well versed with the game’s map. The Kings Canyon is a massive playground which is filled with different kinds of buildings, which in turn is hiding various gears and items. Play more and more in the map to get and understanding of how this area is designed as this will go a long way in not only winning matches but also earning gear when you desperately need one.

It goes without saying that in a Battle Royale game, you can’t survive for long if you don’t coordinate with other players. One of the elements of coordinating is to heal other players. You can heal and restore shield by procuring the necessary items. These are health packs and batteries which are located in random locations like buildings. Get hold of them whenever possible.

When one of the players falls down, you need to get close to them and press the required button based on your platform, so as to begin the healing process. Note that it will take a few seconds before the player is completely healed, so you need to ensure you do it in safe place like behind a cover. Furthermore, if a Lifeline character decides to heal you, they can do so using their healing drone ability.

Another method is to use the Knockdown shield. As the name suggests, this item will form a protective shield covering the downed player. However, note that this shield will only protect you from one side leaving other areas exposed for other players to take you down. Just like other items, Knockdown shield can be found by exploring the game’s map.

Apex Legends was launched recently and already over a 1 million people are playing it. Given that the game is new, some players may not be aware on how they can get hold of in-game loot. In this guide we are going to point some locations where you can find loot, guns and weapons in Apex Legends.

  • When the game begins, the full map will be shown off to you with a moving supply ship. You need to land on this ship. However, note that, other players will also do the same.
  • You will also come across blue circles on the game’s map. These are risky areas but there are some awesome weapons with attachments in there.
  • You will also find stuff scattered in buildings and in loot crates.
Since the game has just launched, we don’t have a list of every location where you can find loot, guns and weapons but the videos below will help you get some awesome stuff.
