There are Apex Legends players who have a hard time finding the best landing spots and pathing in King’s Canyon, which would make an in-depth replay system crucial to have.
The developers at Respawn Entertainment sat down on April 25 to straighten out their plans for the game with their community. While they laid out the groundwork for future content releases, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to add this replay function in to their agenda.
In a Reddit post, user ‘Procyon4’ suggested implementing a post-game replay that would let people see every path players took in that given match. A tool like this would be invaluable for those trying to see where they can improve from either looting or rotating during a fight.
Take the path less traveled, because yours is getting you killed
Procyon4 remembered seeing a similar feature in a past game which would “show the exact path and combat events that occurred” during the live game.
“... Once the mission was complete, it would show the exact path and combat events that occurred like kills and specials in a quick timelapse of the round,” Procyon4 said. “It would be really cool to see something similar for Apex. After the game finishes, you get to see all the different squads and the routes they took overlaid on a map of the arena as well as things like ults and kills.”
While the idea wouldn’t be a simple endeavor for Respawn to tackle, a feature like this could go a long way to help improve players get better grasp of the game.
Improving the Apex Legends community
Simple rotations or optimal situations to use an Ultimate aren’t as obvious for some people, so having a way to peek into the Champion squad’s game to learn a thing or two could help improve the skill ceiling for the player base at large.
It seems like Respawn Entertainment has their hands full with cleaning up the game’s major bugs and delivering more batches of content. But once the bigger problems get out of the way, players wouldn’t mind a tool to improve like this.
