Almost forgot how punchy and satisfying the gun combat of this series is. Also in the past Ive exclusively played br games solo, the forced teamwork of the game is a nice change of pace and keeps you in the game longer with revives. Won my second match and it was actually a lot of fun.
 
I dig the class-based aspect, actually. I mained Support in Overwatch and felt immediately comfortable in Apex with the character that throws out healing drones and calls in supply drops.

Healing just comes naturally to me, I dunno.

I can't figure out why, but this game runs like absolute dogshit on my laptop (not top of the line, but mid-high range gaming laptop). But it seems less like changing settings and more like its just not playing nice with my system.

Things I dig about the game:

- The ping system is great for playing with random players, but communication is still key to success.
- Love the respawn system with the banners and the spawn machines that randomly drop on the map.
- Dropping together as one single unit is pretty cool if you want to ensure everyone drops in the same spot and sticks together.
- Weapons feel great to shoot.
- The map is varied and visually fun to be in.
- Having a strong team composition adds a new layer of strategy.

Things I dislike about the game:

- The guns all look the same to me. It's hard to differentiate guns laying around on the floor.
- When finding a better piece of armor, I wish the game would auto drop the lower level piece and auto equip the better one.
- Prices on skins and such are just as much bullshit as Fortnite, but it's f2p so what can you do?
- The lack of wall running kills the momentum of movement. I wish they would add that back in.
- Wish there were more modes, but I'm sure we're getting there.

Overall I like Fortnite more but I definitely enjoy this more than Blackout and PUBG. Good job, Respawn.

The UI is a little confusing. It's not too clear as to what items you have equipped on yourself and on your guns. Not to mention I'm sometimes confused as to whether or not I can equip an item.

I'm not big on battle royales. The only other one i played was the trial for blackout .

Mechanically everything feels really good.

However, there's something about the aesthetics that make seeing people difficult at times. There's a lot of overall clutter, shadows and dark areas that makes quickly assessing people in the distance kind of difficult

After the Black Ops blackout free trial, I ended up buying the game. A week or two later, my PSN expires. As I bought Black Ops recently, I renewed to play it. A few more days has passed and this game stealth releases and I am liking it way more than Black Ops. Turns out I wasted a 90 bucks. FML.

Changing the subject, can someone explain to me Wraith's passive ability? I never notice it triggering.

Initially looked like it was just cosmetic loot boxes that could be bought but i watched the video explanation and, you also buy character classes. Nope. Fuck Off. Loved TitanFall 2 but I'm not touching this garbage.

It tells you everything visually. Bottom left will show what armor, guns clearly show the ammo icons, if you pick up better armor it will replace automatically, it will tell you if an attachment on the ground goes with one of your weapons, it shows the attachments in the bottomt right shows what attachments are on the guns and which slots are empty, anything that doesn't apply has a big red crossout in the inventory, etc, etc.

I mean there are only two locked classes which are both easily unlockable just by playing the game....

This is not really different from league of legends. I am okay with this. The grind to unlock the extra two classes isn't any different from League of Legends too.
