With the Apex Legends Season 3 update came a string of changes, but intuitive players have discovered a way to stop the train on the new World’s Edge map.

The new Apex Legends map has received some great feedback from players, with the replacement of King’s Canyon initially a cause of concern for some. However, even top streamers such as Shroud are discussing why World’s Edge is so good.

Despite this, one small feature has been really annoying some players; a train that flies through the map, able to kill any player that steps in its way, immediately taking them out of the match.

This is obviously a nuisance when you’ve dedicated 20 minutes to a game, only to be taken out by a map feature rather than a more skilled player and, although it’s possible to avoid, even the best players get caught out sometimes.

Now, though, players are starting to realize that you can stop the train regardless of where it is. If you jump on the train and head to the carriage at the very front, there is a panel with a button prompt to stop the train.

Not only is this a great way to avoid dying to the train unexpectedly, but you can also use it tactically for rotations to different areas of the map, whether it be to find better loot or to reach the next safe zone.

More likely than that, though, players will probably find a way to time it to wipe out enemy players and squads to their own advantage.

If you’re not yet a fan of World’s Edge and want King’s Canyon back, then you’re in luck; it’s been hinted that a new version of the map will be returning for the Halloween Shadowfall LTM event, and it’s been confirmed that map decisions will be made based on player feedback.

Meanwhile, it’s been rumored that the end of Fortnite – could the two battle royale games be going head-to-head once more?

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!
