The world record for most kills by a single player in Apex Legends on console has been, beaten as the 30 kill mark has finally been crossed – but it’s still a long way off the PC record.

As soon as Apex Legends released on February 4,  the most talented players got to work trying to set the world records, with NRG pro ‘Dizzy’ setting a peak of 34 kills on PC.

This has later been overtaken, with Overwatch pro Mendo extending the record to 36, but throughout this, the console record has stood strong at 29 kills by ‘Casdg_’.

KobiTheRapper has set a new console world record.

The elusive 30 kill mark couldn’t be matched on console – until now, as PS4 player KobiTheRapper has just got over the line.

With a whopping 4,458 damage, Kobi wiped out half of the lobby by himself, putting the extremely powerful Wingman pistol to good use.

The Wingman has been a constant in almost all Apex Legends world records, as players with excellent aim can make the weapon look incredibly overpowered.

In the hands of most players, the Wingman is a high risk/high reward weapon, with the punishment for missing your shots usually resulting in a swift end.

Console players still have some catching up to do if they are to match the 36 kills set by Mendo on PC, but for now, the target is 31 – and at the rate which players are breaking records, KobiTheRapper might not hold on to this one for long.

Apex Legends’ Winter Express LTM is chugging along as a part of the Holo-Day Bash event, but if you’ve never dropped in and want some tips on which legends to use, we’ve got you covered. 

With the Holo-Day Bash event returning for the 2020 holiday season, Respawn Entertainment have also brought back the Winter Express limited-time mode. Though, some fans criticized them for “recycling modes, this year’s iteration does include some interesting changes.

The mode is completely different from the typical battle royale gameplay you’re used to in Apex. Your team has to take control of the train that used to chug its way around World’s Edge – all while dealing with preset loadouts and enemies who are contesting for control. Plus, there are a few issues with friendly fire now, too. 

As it’s so different, your usual main Legend might not be as useful here, so here are a few tips and the best characters to use, to help you pick up more wins.

Winter Express is back, and its as enjoyable as ever.

In terms of the best Legends to use, you may have to switch things up from who you would usually use in the battle royale mode. For example, Lifeline is great in duos/trios, but she’s not really needed in Winter Express as her healing abilities are rather useless here.

Caustic is probably the best legend to use, given that his gas is an absolute killer in the tight spaces. Similarly, Rampart’s amped walls are useful too, especially if you’re camping the train. 

Wraith, as always, is a stellar choice because her portal can get you out of a sticky situation – of which there are plenty in Winter Express. Additionally, Crypto and Wattson are good choices. Crypto because the drone can be used to auto-scan enemies, while Wattson’s interception pylon nullifies everyone’s stack of grenades.

Don’t head right for the train

While the name of the game is capturing the train, that doesn’t have to mean you need to land there. You can easily land just off to the side for a cleaner start to looting, and then work your way over. 

Plus, if you do so, you can annoy enemies who try to capture it right away by disrupting their progress on the capture. 

Additionally, if you are going for the train, it’s best to attack from the front. Players will be expecting attacks from the side and the back, but the front is often forgotten about. So, use it to your advantage. 


Of course, you might have your own tactics for dominating the LTM, but there are some general tips everyone can follow, which you can find right here

The Winter Express and Holo-Day Bash event are set to run for another month, until January 4, so you’ve got plenty of time to hone your skills and pick up wins.
