The world record for most kills in Apex Legends is a prestigious honor, and people have been fighting since the game’s inception to take the top spot. Here are the full list of verified world records for solo, duos, solo vs trios, and trios.

On PC, the record for most kills in unranked trios was set Fyzu, Wrugb and DesertUK with 46 kills, on March 28, 2019, whereas on console it stands at 45 kills, only one less than PC, and is held by Gaitor_423, Pensatas, ImCadillackinSolo on trios.

The solo vs trio record is held by former Overwatch pro Mendo, who racked up a whopping 36 kills on his own. On console, the same feat was set by Japanese player Asapan, with 35 kills on PS4.

Although solos is not a permanent game mode, people raced into lobbies when it was announced to set the record. The current holder is streamer and YouTuber iiTzTimmy, who racked up 24 kills back in August, 2019.

When it comes to Ranked Trios, the record was set by HusKerrs, SweetDreams, and Dropped in the highest division of them all, Predator, with 43 eliminations. And for ranked solo vs trio, TH3GOLDENBOY leads the way with 26 kills in the Gold division.

Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage make surprise return to Apex Legends

In an impromptu update, Respawn Entertainment have delighted Apex Legends fans by bringing back both the Kings Canyon map and the Mirage Voyage point of interest for a limited time.

The Apex community lit up with a blend of surprise and joy when users logged onto the popular battle royale and found out that Kings Canyon was reintroduced to the game’s playlist options. As an added bonus, the game’s most infamous party boat, the Mirage Voyage, also spontaneously re-emerged as a landing spot.

A common emotional accompaniment to surprise is confusion and this geographical return was not lacking in either, according to Twitter reactions. The option to play on Kings Row was originally speculated to be a mistake because the playlist choice was only showing up for some players and mysteriously appearing then disappearing for others. 

But, following an official announcement from the Apex Legends Twitter account, it’s confirmed that the returns of Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage are no mistake. In fact, they will be around for a full week.

Echoing the enthusiasm of their fans, Apex’s social media account delivered the news with a simple nod to jubilations: “It’s party time.”

And, as fans have been discovering in the brief time the map’s been made available, there are some tweaks to Kings Canyon and Mirage Voyage this time around — including some notable teasers and easter eggs. 

In one such piece of subtle content, there is a voicemail left to Mirage by his mother, Evelyn Witt, which can be found on a phone or tablet device that’s been left on one of the boat’s green couches. While it’s not a groundbreaking piece of lore, it does add to the game’s longrunning storylines.

This marks the first time since August 2020 that Mirage Voyage is available to contest in Apex Legends and the first time ever that it has sailed into Kings Canyon instead of World’s Edge. This blend of returns is both a chance for nostalgia and for content overlap.

Although the new playlist option will only be available until January 21, fans will be curious to know if this means Respawn intends on continuing to spontaneously bring back limited playlist offerings in the future.
