Apex Legends Tips, Tricks & Strategy Guide – Ever since PUBG revolutionized the Battle Royale game genre, every other week there’s a free-to-play game based on this model. So we could almost anticipate a new game that combines the Battle Royale experience with the hero shooter. No, if you’re trying to guess, the game we’re referring to is not Anthem, but it is, however, another game published by EA. If you’re a huge fan of Titanfall, you’ll probably appreciate Apex Legends. It’s set in the same universe that Titanfall is. At the time of writing this article, the game had received over 25 million downloads and over 2 million concurrent users in the span of a week upon its release. What this means is the game is already extremely popular.
The game’s tutorial does fairly well at introducing gamers to the core game mechanics, however, it doesn’t really show you how to win. In truth, no one can really show you how to win, in very horse-to-water fashion, we can only show you the river, it’s your responsibility to dive in – if you choose. If you’re looking for the best tips, tricks, and strategies to become the complete apex in Apex Legends, you’ve come to the right place. Now, without further ado, let’s do this.

Top 10 Apex Legends Tips, Tricks and Strategies
When playing Apex Legends, it’s important to get familiar with the map. You’ll need to know how you can use Kings Canyon’s key areas to your advantage. These key areas include Jump Towers, Respawn Beacons, and Hot Zones. These areas are frequently occupied by players and they’re very important parts of gameplay.
Using a Jump Tower creatively to escape a particularly sticky situation or to give chase can really benefit you. Another reason you may want to memorize these areas is because they’re great ambush spots. There’s nothing like catching a player while s/he’s trying to scour a Hot Zone for rare treasures.
Nothing compares to the feelings of catching a player slipping while they’re trying to revive their fallen teammates through a Respawn Beacon. If you know the lay of the land, you can master Apex Legends.
Ping, Ping, Ping
The tutorial actually emphasizes this aspect of the game. Apex Legend has a surprisingly simple but sophisticated ping system that allows you to convey information or communicate without actually using your microphone. You can essentially use the ping system to mark your territory or point out an enemy on the battlefield. You can use it to call “dibs” on a loot item or inform your teammates when a drop ship is nearby.
Keep an eye out for Supply Bins
Supply bins are like giant treasure chests filled with all sorts of goodies like weapons, ammunition, attachments, and even armor. They’re hidden randomly all over King’s Canyon but you need to be vigilant because you’re not the only player looking for these. What this means is that they are great ambush spots.
Do not engage in a fight until you have armor
It sounds like we’re stating the obvious here but many players think they’re John Rambo in First Blood. If you have any hopes of surviving and ultimately winning in this game, you need to ensure that you have fully charged armor before engaging in any battles or shootouts.
Don’t try to be a hero, if you’ve inexplicably found yourself in a shootout or battle before you have grabbed some armor, try to stick behind your armored teammates. There’s no shame in retreating. Better off a lively coward than a dead hero.
Slide as much as you can
Want to be evasive while simultaneously looking cool as all hell? Then slide. You can perform a slide by performing a crouch while running. This works very well on slopes but it can also be performed on flat terrain. It makes you an unpredictable target for enemies. Use it as much as you can.
Holster your weapon to run faster
This tip should be pretty self-explanatory. If you need to make a quick escape from an overwhelming battle or if you need to keep up with your team, holstering your weapon allows you to actually run faster. To holster your weapon, hold Triangle on PS4, Y on Xbox One, or press 3 on PC.

Apex Legends allows your character to vault over debris, objects, and low walls by running up to them and jumping. Although Apex Legends does not have some of the freedom of movement that Titanfall is known for, it’s still very useful to know that your character will automatically jump over most objects and low terrain just by walking up to it and jumping. It’s a great way to stay on the move, escape and reach those hard-to-access areas.
Study your weapons
What a lot of users have trouble with is understanding the weapon add-on UI at a glance. It’s not very intuitive and it’s hard to get the hang of in the heat of the moment. That’s why it’s important to memorize and learn which attachment goes for which gun and which attachment can be replaced with another.
It’s also important to note and understand which weapons have different firing modes. A lot of weapons have alternative firing modes. You can switch your firing mode between single and auto.
Don’t be a hoarder. Do not pack your inventory with excess ammo
Since inventory is limited, it’s important to discern between what you need and what you don’t. Ammo is an abundant resource in this game and you’ll certainly be tempted to pick it all up but don’t. It’s important to take stock of inventory too. Discard what you don’t need and keep what you do.
One enemy at a time
We mentioned the ping system earlier on. If you’re playing as a team, you need to coordinate your attacks through pinging. Try to focus your attention on a single enemy at a given time. What we’ve found, is the team that can organize and coordinate their attacks seem to come out on top.
Bonus Tips and Strategies
- Gold armor items have the same stats as Purple items, but with an added unique perk.
- There’s no fall damage in Apex Legends.
- Do not land right into the action. Try staying in the dropship longer and landing in the outskirts of the map.
- Try to split off from your teammates during a drop so you don’t find yourselves fighting over the same loot.
- Keep an eye out for loot Ticks.
- Learn about item colors.
- Revive your teammates by recovering their banners.
- Study your Apex Legend. Learn about their abilities and choose the one that compliments your gaming style the best.
Hopefully, after following these helpful tips, you’ll be able to become an actual legend at Apex Legends. Remember to slow down and take your time. Being good at something requires a fair amount of grinding and practice. Apex Legends is no different. If it isn’t easy to get on your first try, just take your time and learn how the game works.
