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 developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
