Low-ranked matches in Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends can provide some quality humor as this ridiculous Bronze victory exemplified.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum from the flashy plays and stylish maneuvers of professional players, Bronze ranked Apex Legends games can be just as enjoyable to watch thanks to some hilarious gameplay.

While obviously the lowest of tiers in ranked competition, that didn’t stop one crafty Bronze player from accidentally demonstrating an ingenious way of finding a last-second victory.

Respawn Entertainment - Apex LegendsRanked Leagues were implemented in Season Two of the popular battle royale title.

Only two squads remained in a November 20 post from Reddit user ‘Manascream.’ As the map continued to shrink around him and his teammates, they desperately searched for the final remaining enemies.

Stumbling upon two enemies out in the open, the player connected quite a few shots before being forced to retreat and heal up indoors.

It was here in a moment of sheer panic that he deployed Octane’s Launch Pad in the doorway in hopes of momentarily separating from combat. Little did he know that he just set off an extremely amusing chain of events.

“I f*cked up,” the player hilariously muttered upon realizing that he had inadvertently trapped himself between the enemy team and the deathly circle that had since cut the room in half.

To his surprise however, one by one the opposition flooded into the room and dramatically launched themselves into the ceiling before crashing back down outside the zone.

Clearly perplexed and unable to make their way back to safety, the player quickly mowed down two enemies, uncontrollably laughing all the while.

The third and final opponent was able to knock him down after all, but proving to be the cherry on top of such an unbelievable showcase, that same enemy ran back into the Launch Pad and met a similar fate to his teammates.

No shortage of absolutely hilarious moments in low-ranked competition of late, this Apex Legends victory comes just days after one of the most extraordinary highlights in Silver ranked CSGO history.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
