Apex Legends concept would show players every single thing that happened in their game

An Apex Legends player has suggested a concept for the game that would give players a better understanding of exactly how each game played out.

The idea put forward by u/atemple47 would show players a map of King’s Canyon at the end of each game with a breakdown of exactly what happened to them as they attempted, successfully or otherwise, to become champions.

The concept would show players their travel route across the map after each game, as well as marking points of note like where they landed, where they killed enemies, and where they were ultimately eliminated.

As well as simply being interesting, especially after a long game in which the player moved around a lot or picked up a lot of kills, over time it could also help players get a sense of their own tendencies, as well as which areas of the map tend to work better for them.


Other players have also suggested a more detailed version, incorporating the paths of the enemy that eliminated you as well, for instance, or even perhaps having the option to show paths for all of the players in the game, although this could easily get quite cluttered

Other suggestions along similar lines include personal heat-maps showing where players have picked up their kills, where they’ve landed the most, or where they’ve been eliminated throughout their Apex Legends career.

Apex has faced some criticism for the limitations of its current stat tracking. There are no overall statistics available in-game, with stats being tracked only on a legend-by-legend basis, meaning players have to manually add them together to figure out their overall numbers. Even then, the types of statistics available remain fairly limited.

Respawn Entertainment have yet to comment on whether or not they’ll expand the game’s statistics tracking, either in terms of traditional stats or more visual statistics like u/atemple47’s concept.

Apex Legends content creator and Apex Predator ‘chiknnuggey’ has offered players of Respawn’s battle royale 28 tips and tricks to instantly improve in-game. 

Regardless of your rank in Apex Legends, chances are you have certain areas you can improve. Whether it’s recoil control, movement around the map or deciding how to balance your loadout, no player is completely flawless, as much as they might like to tell themselves.

Chiknnuggey, an Apex YouTuber and Predator-rank player, sits at 13,000 YouTube subscribers, and regularly posts Apex content to try and help his subscribers.

That’s exactly the aim of his January 15 video, which offers a whopping 28 tips and tricks to Apex Legends players, ensuring they’ve got the game’s basics completely nailed.

To be great at Apex Legends, you need to make sure you’ve got the basics done.

As you can imagine with 28 tips and tricks, they cover a lot of bases. The Predator’s movement tricks involve ‘zipline bouncing’ meaning you can use ziplines positioned near buildings to instantly reach an elevated position.

Another awesome trick is being able to throw grenades through closed doors. To do this, aim for the very bottom corner of the door, and use the projectile indicator. When it disappears, it means your grenade will slip through the corner of the closed doors. It’s a great way to damage an enemy you know is one the other side.

We also really like the tip to enable fast armor swaps. If you’re in a heavy loot area and planning on hanging around there, drop all the available armor on the floor. In an engagement, you can easily swap your armor for a new one, without having to open a loot box. This will give you a major health boost instantly, and could be the difference between winning and losing a fight.

There are also some more well-known tips, such as how to avoid the fall stun by meleeing a nearby surface (meleeing the ground was patched out long ago, but there’s a new way).

Your play-style may differ from some of the tips, but anything recommended by an Apex Predator should be worth trying out. If you don’t like a tactic or can’t pull it off, then drop it and stick to ones you know you’re capable of. Other than that, drop in and gives these tricks a go!
