Everything You Need To Know About Apex Legends
Apex Legends takes place in the same world as Titanfall 2. From context clues, we’ve pieced together than Respawn may be building a “shared universe” of sorts between their different games. If this is true, it could be a really sneaky way of announcing Titanfall 3.
Apex Legends is not Titanfall 3. Although some users have claimed that if you squint really hard at the logo you can make the words ‘Titanfall 3’ appear like a Magic Eye trick, an exhaustive investigation reveals that this is not the case. The game also contains zero titans, which is a dead giveaway.
Apex Legends IS Titanfall 3. We spoke to a guy who knows someone who works at Respawn and they said that there’s a hidden debugging feature where if you press Alt + F4 during a match it will call down a titan. We haven’t checked this one out yet so take it with a grain of salt, but we’re confident when we say that this game is a canonical sequel to Titanfall 2.
One player each round is randomly assigned to be Gay. Unlike Overwatch which tries to play down its diversity and representation aspects, Apex Legends loudly announces at the end of every round which player was gay the whole time and then emails your dad (using the email address linked to your Origin account) to tell him. This is a huge win for representation and we’re keen to see what Overwatch (or PUBG) will do to keep up.
There is only one bullet on each map. Ammunition is in short supply in Apex Legends, with only one bullet available to collect on every map at a time. Making it to The Bullet first is a great way to give your team an early advantage. If you don’t make it, learning the map will allow you to find the best places to hide out until the next bullet drop.
You can only loot a chest if you’ve romanced it. Unlike other battle royale games which are a loot free for all, Apex Legends requires you to undertake a detailed dating simulator before a loot chest will open up to you. If you’re not having luck with any loot chests, you might want to try being patient and genuinely showing interest rather than talking about yourself all the time
Wall-running has been replaced with floor-running. Titanfall was unique in that players were forced to wall-run everywhere. That sense of fluid movement has been carried over to this canonical sequel, but Respawn have cleverly turned the whole thing 90 degrees and made the walls into floors. This is a game-changer.
You can’t pay to win, but you can pay to lose. The battle royale genre is rapidly becoming crowded, and one of the things that Apex Legends is cleverly doing to distinguish itself from the competition is a new ‘pay to lose’ microtransaction. Paying $2.99 instantly guarantees that you will lose the next match, which should satisfy players who were worried about unbalancing the game.
You can revive your squad mates when they’re killed, but you shouldn’t. Your squadmates suck shit and are just dragging you down. If you want to win and get the award for Most Gay, you should ditch them.
Keeping all of these tips in mind will give you the edge in your games of Apex Legends! Let us know how you get on in the comments.
