Apex Legends Ranked mode is not for everybody, pushing players to their limits – and nothing exemplifies that more than this teammate who went viral on TikTok after pulling out all the stops.
Grinding Ranked has become quite the phenomenon since Season 10 started in the Apex Games, with big streamers like Dr Disrespect, NICKMERCS, and others eyeing up Apex Predator status.

He drops down all of his healing items – from syringes to shields – before saying: “Guys, this is going to be a sudden death…” The ring was quickly closing in on the trio, but they had the high ground.
Before diving downwards, Jinx said: “You guys keep healing, I love you all. Heal as much as you can. I will try to fight this and you guys will have to heal, OK?”

The ultimate sacrifice
What happens next secured Jinx legendary status, as he leapt down to where the enemy team was and starting popping shots with his Flatine. Soon after, the enemy squad approached him and teamed up to knock him down.
The distraction might have been a temporary thing, but his opponents all took their eyes off the ball thinking it was an ambush. Seconds later, the ring continued to close, wiping out Jinx (who basically become a sacrifice), and the remaining Apex Legends team.
