because without mag 3 and upgrade it sucks so bad. just getting the thing and 2 upgrades requires too much effort, but if you manage to get it - its damn good
Top players getting 16 kills a game dont have to worry about not finding attachments. Theyll kill so many people they're inevitably come across the attachment. If it were that good wed be seeing it.

I didn't realise there would be such a height difference between Gibralter/Caustic and the rest of the legends. It feels really weird to me lol.

I want to spend money on the game but I feel like I should wait until March to see how much coins to buy lol. I want Mirage, Caustic and the battlepass but they’re releasing two this first season?

without auto-fire attachment that gun is burst fire garbage. you wont even pick it up.
only fully upgraded its pretty much a better AR-99

High sensitivities often lead to over-tracking your target, requiring multiple small adjustments to get it exactly where you want it, especially if the enemy is rapidly changing directions (AD strafe).
I tried it tonight. You’re right, it felt awful at first, like it took forever to turn but I did notice my aim slowly getting better. If I could just stop the panic firing I’ll not be totally useless!

Thanks again.

So what are some practical uses for Wraith's portal?
It allows you to scout an area/make a push with out having to commit to it.

It allows you to quickly move your entire team from one piece of cover to another if health is low.

It can be used to bamboozle opponents from 2 pieces of cover (portal from cover 1, run to cover 2, engage opponents, use portal to reset to cover 1, kill from cover 1 whilst opponents are watching cover 2.

This game.



I can't figure out who I like the most. Just started clicking with Wraith after being Caustic and Mirage most of the time. Wraith's ult in a group (I'm with randos most of the day until friends can play) in a group that pay attention to whether I'm placing them... is fun as hell. Not sure about the Mirage and Lifeline, could have been in a Party together, but zero was communicated via mic. All pings.

If you know how to place them/read them (including the eye or "I'm watching this location") you don't even need a mic to win. That said, surely a fully mic'd and communicative team still has the advantage, but damn if Respawn didn't make a lot of really smart decisions.

So what are some practical uses for Wraith's portal?
In that winning match above, there were three times were we were getting into fights with multiple teams, or a 3rd party would show up as we were engaging our initial target. Each time I put a portal down, and we escaped or rotated on one of the teams to put THEM in the middle of two teams. It was fun fun fun.

The match immediately preceding that one I had both of my squad mates leave the match the second they were crated, and I killed the squad that pushed us only to then be alone...

The match immediately after the match above, the circle was still HUGE with only us and one other team left. Took forever to find each other.

I had a very laggy game on PS4 just now. Felt like 10 fps.

Also I need more aggressive teammates. If we don't get a kill within the first 30 seconds of dropping then we are doing something wrong.

Whats the verdict on the response curve option in the controller settings. Ive changed to Steady and think it has helped my aim hard to say for definate though.

Here is the link to the Apex Discord server:

It isn’t. Enemies cant see pings.
I believe at least one character will be able to tell if he's been spotted. Can't remember who though so you do have to be careful with it.
I think, I´m done with this game. Today, for at least 15 matches in a row, I had the pleasure to play with random teammates who run like idiots with nothing but a pistol equipped at whole squads and die instantly, lone wolves who get killed the moment they encounter an opponent, teammates who don`t give a fuck about pinging and other bullshit. Most of these matches didn`t last longer than two minutes.
Sometimes I managed to kill a complete squad after they downed my teammates, sometimes I ran away from them or hid and waited till they leave, so I could collect my teammates banner while they were yelling at me. My favorite one was a guy who constantly wrote "TAKE OUR SOULS!" like he copied & pasted that line, while I was dealing with a squad, lol.
No, thanks. I really enjoyed Apex for the first two days and I think it`s a brilliant game but it has become pure frustration and a waste of time for me.
This can all be avoided by playing with friends. If you don't have any to play with then it takes a bit of effort to get social and make friends with players you'd like to play with again. I do it on every team based game I play.

Played all morning and couldn’t get a kill. Then one game I came to the rescue of my squad who knocked only to run out of bullets just as the enemy was reviving his friend. Randoms on the mic just yelling at me for sucking in that clutch moment.

Winning all weekend but struggling today.

Great game though. Every engagement a puzzle.

As I said above—Wraith remarks when someone ADS's on her. I do not believe that any character has a response to being pinged.

It's fun reading all the "I didnt like BR until Apex Legends" posts around the internet. A sure sign that they did something very right

That last idea is pretty situational but smart. Didn't think of it.

It has a superior feel imo. Fortnite and Blackout's gameplay gets the job done, but doesn't feel amazing to me or anything. Whereas pretty much every action in Apex has a stellar feel and inherent satisfaction with it. Doesn't hurt that its quality of life leapfrogged the genre significantly.

Finally tried the game out and played with a full group the other night. We all sucked and are still trying to get the hang of it, but it was fun. So far, after only having played a little bit, one of my few criticisms when it comes to the gameplay is that I don't really like the ammo management.

I haven't seen many complaints about the micro transactions but I'm not too happy with what I'm seeing here. I really dislike that some legends are locked and take a lot of credits to unlock. Sure, right now there is only 2 and they give you enough at the start to buy 1 if you want, but if I want the other it looks like it will take a lot of time, and in the future when they add more it will get a lot worse.

They could have all the cosmetic MTX in the world and I wouldn't complain, I just really don't like the idea of a bunch of legends being behind a paywall or a long grind.

I hate Bangalore's pick lines. Getting close to despising them. She's a totally generic 'cool and edgy' dudebro type character that I dislike in modern military shooters like CoD. A dudettesis if you will. I swear if she was a male character people would be rolling their eyes.

"Clips are what civvies use in their hair, this is a magazine"
"Don't want any clusterfoxtrots in my team" (this one is especially cringy due to the corny PG-13 swearing)

Her normal phrases in game like when using abilities, getting shot or general chatter are fine though. The military lingo fits for stuff like 'Whole team KIA' or 'Tango down' or 'Eating lead'. Those aren't that bad.

Just won my first round with Caustic. That man is a beast in close quarters and buildings. Throwing gas left and right.

Just did my first match and came 3rd, that's some slick shit they've created, the color coding of items is genius, especially for ammo. I'm also loving the verbal callouts for everything.

Yeah she is my least favourite character. She is pretty boring compared to the other characters.

All ammo is colour coded based on the weapon colour on the hud if that helps.

If everyone acted like Bangalore it would be a problem but since it’s just her it’s fine. I too am not a huge fan of the overt military obsess character but it’s rare that it comes from a black woman, and she sells it. There’s a charm to how she says the lines compared to your typical COD character. I’ll make her the exception.

Most of the characters are like that lol, just game characters that play up their gimmick to make an impression.

I think lifeline is the only i really like and im neutral on the rest.

You should play Caustic if you want to hear edgy, "A new kill leader, i must confess it's what i long to be"

I think Bangalore is hilarious, just wish she had more lines. They should lean more into making her a weeb for military procedures.

This game is amazing. Played a bunch yesterday. Easily the best battle royale and plays like a charm. Probably my favorite PvP FPS experience since Modern Warfare/ Modern Warfare 2.

I got killed on the flank in the final battle with the other squad, but I had the the gold knockdown shield and revived while the battle was going on. I kinda hid myself and let the battle distract. Woke up and killed the team from behind.

Again they get any gear they want by virtue of killing half the server and running around at will. This is not an issue. If it were that good shroud would be picking it up preemptively in anticipation of having it loaded out like he does with devotion, like he did with the vector in pubg. It doesnt matter that it requires the attachment, guns that ostensibly are better than what we know as the meta, as you and others claim, would be getting TONS of play by pros. It's nowhere to be seen.

Banter between characters is something that's missing that I hope they add. Gotta have more interaction between Mirage and Pathfinder and the rest of the cast.
