The world record for most kills by a Trio in Apex Legends on PC has been broken with one team racking up an eye-watering 48 eliminations.
Since the release of Apex Legends back on February 4, players across the world have been hard at work trying to secure bragging rights through a number of world records in Respawn Entertainment’s title.
Some players made that test incredibly hard by taking on a session of trios all by themselves. That record stands at 36 and is held by Mendokusaii. Yet, the challenge gets a little easier when a full squad is taking on the lobby and can spread the kills equally.
That happened on May 24, as Reddit user nOOkexe posted their claim to the throne with a 48 kill game.
While the squad didn’t have any particular highlight plays to show off, they at least captured their winning screen that backed up how many kills they had. It was a fairly even split between the trio - with Gnaske_Lone_TTV racking up 14 kills, ya_em_detei_lol picking up 16 and nOOOK leading the way with 18.
All in all, the 48 kills surpasses the former world record of 46 held by tevDesertuk, Fyzu, and Wrugb - which had stood since the end of March.
After picking up the new record, compliments immediately flooded in from the Apex Legends subreddit for the trio. One user posted: “People don't appreciate the high kills like this in Apex theres only 60 PEOPLE! these guys cleared 80% of the lobby on a smaller map than other BRs and faster pace than other BRs. G fucking G guys.”
However, not everyone was happy to see that they’d broken the world record. One Redditor, going under the username ChocolateMorsels, commented: “They let people respawn and farm them so...meh. If they didn't do that here then awesome but I'm assuming they did.”
Regardless of how the record was achieved, the trio clearly broke the long-standing number and did while streaming live on Twitch to an audience of viewers.
It remains to be seen just how long their record will stand for but considering just how hard it may be to break the pretty lofty number, it’s going to take something special to knock them off the top.
