Played a bit of the new legend this weekend, Seer. I will say his kit is strong, but nowhere near as “over powered” as I heard it would be.

I didn’t get to use him as much as I would have liked, still being so new his pick rate is still incredibly high. However, from the handful of games I was able to, I can confirm his abilities are a lot of fun.

Nothing like watching that sweaty bald Wraith just simply disconnect moments after interrupting a res with his tactical, which also shows enemy health bars to your team. I hear they’re going to remove the flash aspect in an update this week. Which while I previously stated I don’t think he is over powered as is, that flash is equally distracting to myself, and teammates so removing it will be to the benefit of everyone.

His ultimate is easily breakable, however the information it provides is extremely useful, so while I don’t recommend under throwing it, try and tuck it somewhere safe, or that amped up Sentinel will put it down faster than even Crypto’s EMP.

Some other notable things this season offers.

Disruptor rounds are back on the Alternator, it’s now found in Care Packages.

Spitfire also moved into the Care Packages.
The new LMG Rampage is twice as brutal so don’t celebrate that last one too fast.

Prowler returns to floor loot, but without the select fire hop up.

New Boosted Loader hop up fits the Hemlock, and Wingman. Faster reload with low mag, and overloads the mag as well.

Map changes to World’s Edge.

Ranked Arena’s dropped, 10 matches for placement.

Huge LStar buff, it now can slot energy magazines increasing time to overheat, and speeds up cool down, and also barrel stabilizers. Still can’t put a digital threat on it though.

Edit: Added a link to a quick guide of legend abilities, weapons, and attachments.

Ive seen you playing this a lot lately and its got me thinking to look into this game.
I read one of those If you like This youll like that kind of articles about Destiny, and this game was listed as one to try.

And then I read all that I thought I was reading greek. Razz
How bad is the learning curve?

Steep, but summit-able. It's easy to learn, hard to master.
Not sure how you feel about the BR genre as whole, but its definitely not like the others.


Each legend has their own abilities that bring different flavors to each and every fight. Ranging from decoys to missile bombardments. Learning who does what, and how, might take some time. More so to get find which fits your playstyle best and who you're most comfortable with.

Other than that it's just getting comfortable with each weapon enough to fight with it.

I know a lot of people have switched to this because Warzone has no anti-cheat and people have gotten annoyed by it. That and their SBMM increasing people's ping.

I'm not sure I want to give this a go, though. Warzone was the first Battle Royale that I actually did like for how it played and some of its mechanics (gulag wins for example). So I'm on the fence.....taking the time to learn a whole new system is intimidating LOL

I know a lot of Apex players who are upset about this, some of which I understand, like, Apex cheat searches on google increased over 600% in the last month. However I am of the mind that this increase in player base is great for the state of the game. Watching some of the bigger streamers make the switch as well is amazing as well. Watching Nick and Tim GRIND has been amazing. I was never a big fan of Warzone, and while there is no gulag, the game isn't over for you if you get thirsted in a fight. Your team can recover your respawn banner and bring you back into the fight.  I have spent the last week building a guide of the basics of the game for new and old players alike. Haven't quite finished it yet, but when I do, this will be the place to find it. So, if you do wind up entering The Apex Games, feel free to take a gander at it.

Alright! I've finally wrapped up editing, so here goes. Think's Guide to the Apex Games. It's a bit long, so I've got it in a google doc.

I've broken down each legend and their abilities, the loot to find, what some things do, and some tips on firefights. If you have any questions about topics covered or ones not touched in this guide, feel free to ask. I'm always around somewhere.

+1. Nice work, bud.
If I were you, I'd place the guide in your original post so that it's easily found and without it getting buried under the comments. ♡

It is free to play, and it also does not require Playstation Plus.

I will say I learned quite a bit putting this together myself. For example I had no idea how important stocks really are in this game. I quite often passed them up under the assumption that a barrel stabilizer was more useful, when in reality, the stock does most of what I thought barrels did, and even more.

Yeah, that's really really well done. I know that must have taken a lot of time and work.
It means something extra you share it here.

You're definitely selling this game too. Laughing

I can certainly try.
If you enjoy a good pvp experience, fan of the BR genre or not, you will like the combat for sure.

And, I don't know if I mentioned this already, but it is set in the Titanfall Universe. So if you've played those you'll have an idea on the weapons available in the game already.

Yeah not a super-duper fan of BR... but like pvp. Never played TFU either. But I'll be excited to try this out.

If it means anything, I'm not a fan of the wider genre myself. Apex just has something special about the way legend abilities affect fights, as well as the weapons generally having relatively long time to kill. Makes for exciting firefights.
