The world record for most kills by a trio in popular battle royale game Apex Legends appears to have been demolished by a margin of three kills.

Apex Legends burst onto the scene back in February, becoming an immediate hit with battle royale players eager for a new challenge in the immensely popular genre. Alongside aiming to be named Apex Champions in their own matches, some players have gone in search of kill records, setting incredible elimination numbers in search of glory. 

The previous record of 50 was a remarkable feat, seeing as Apex Legends matches are capped at 60 players due to the game only allowing teams of three.

Of course, Apex Legend’s respawn ability means that players often end up killing a player, only for them to be revived by a teammate and brought back into the match. While this can be annoying for players who are searching solely for the win, it’s perfect for those trying to get high kill games, because if you manage to take them down again, you’ll be awarded a second kill, and boost your stats.

OGxSlum, ImGobbleSauce, and Maseoon have taken the game to a whole new level though, dominating their way through a lobby to break the record with an unbelievable 53 kills.

ImGobbleSauce, who makes up one third of the triumphant trio, has uploaded a video to YouTube which shows their incredible run from his perspective, although there are currently no videos available for any of the other players.

The trio split up quickly after drop, attempting to find kills themselves to maximise their coverage across the map, consistently finding themselves in 1v3 scenarios.

What makes their accomplishment even more impressive is the fact that OGxSlums is eliminated with just seven kills early in the contest, with ImGobbleSauce and Maseoon finding 24 and 20 kills respectively to secure the new record.

The gameplay appears to take place on an Xbox console based on the controller prompts which can be spotted on the screen throughout the video, but their successful 53-kill match puts them head-and-shoulders above any trio, regardless of platform.

Prism Esports, the team the players represent, stated they were “thrilled” to announce the accomplishment, while ImGobbleSauce wrote that he was “very proud” to have set the record.

To the best of our knowledge, this gameplay sends the trio straight to the top of the Apex Legends World Records, and secures their spot as the players with the most kills in a single Apex Legends match. This gameplay is from June 7, so took place some time ago, but we’ve been unable to find a gameplay which betters it.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
