Apex Legends Code Red tournaments are known for their entertainment, competition, and excitement, but not many would have expected the world record for squad eliminations to be smashed during the event. 

It takes a lot of skill to be crowned Champions of the Arena in the popular battle royale title, making the qualification stages typically difficult for teams to progress through in competitive events. 

With that being said, it’s going to be even more difficult for players to compete in Code Red tournaments if trios are pushing and making easy work of most of the players in a single game.

Respawn EntertainmentApex Legends’ latest addition, Octane, played a part in the monumental victory.

New world record holders

A team, which included players tevDesertuk (Wraith), Fyzu (Octane) and Wrugb (Bangalore), managed to pick off an astonishing number of other players in a qualifying match, with 46 kills between the three players. 

It wasn’t as if one player took all of the glory, either, as they spread the eliminations out evenly to avoid calls of one player carrying the others. tvDesertuk had the highest tally with 20 eliminations, while Wrugb recorded 16 and Fyzu had the least with 10 – coming together to create the most dominant trio the game has seen, at the time of writing. 

Respawn EntertainmentThe Apex Legends trio were crowned champions in record-breaking fashion.

Proving they broke Apex Legends’ squad record 

The team initially posted their achievement to the Apex Legends subreddit, but it’s only a short clip in the main post showing the end of the match. Yet, as is the case with many of these record videos, it was met with some skepticism from other gamers. 

“They just kill 2 guys out of 3 man party and let them respawn teammates, so they get more kills,” one redditor said. “There is no other way to get such score without doing it that way.

However, that theory was quickly debunked by the team, who posted a video of their incredible achievement to YouTube and shared it with the online community. 

It’s fair to say that you wouldn’t want to get matched up with this team, especially not in this form. 

Previous Apex Legends squad kills record holder

This incredible tally of 46 eliminations in one match bettered the previous joint record of 41 on PC platform, which was shared by two trios – ssjfpsTV, ItsScubby, SHAAFFER and Teenage, Kyraig, JP2.

A fresh Apex Legends leak has pointed at more game modes coming in Season 8 and beyond, including ranked Solos mode and another iteration of Kings Canyon. 

As the Apex Legends seasons have gone on, Respawn Entertainment have added a number of different game modes to the battle royale. For the most part, these limited-time modes have either been slight or major tweaks on the typical last man standing formula of a battle royale.

With Season 8 on the horizon, some leaks have started to filter out about Apex’s second anniversary season – including who we might see as a new legend, current legend tweaks, and of course, limited-time modes. 

These leaks have revealed a team deathmatch-like game mode, that would be played on Kings Canyon, coming to Apex at some point, but a fresh set of leaks have revealed that the devs have more than just that up their sleeve.

Apex has been awash with LTMs, just like the Winter Express mode.

Apex Legends leaker SomeoneWhoLeaks posted the new images on January 14, showing the activity feed from somebody testing out new game modes ahead of Season 8. 

Them team deathmatch style mode – known as Arenas – makes an appearance, as does something called Anniversary Event Kings Canyon, as well as game modes called Locked and Loaded and Death Trigger.

However, what is the most interesting part of it all, is that there a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. It does look a little different from the rest as its listed as “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”

Its inclusion is incredibly interesting as, whenever fans have asked for a solos mode, Respawn has been against it – stating that they have data that points to solos not being “healthy” for the battle royale.

They reiterated their position on January 8, saying that a solos mode would not be coming to Apex. It could be a case that the mode is being tested to assess more data, so, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens here.
