Gathering the best loot and weapons early can be crucial to picking up quick kills in Apex Legends. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you improve your looting speed.

As with many battle royale titles, players often look around frantically for any loot once they drop into the map, to try to gain an early advantage over their opponents.

Although picking up loot is not as exhilarating as getting into gunfights, quickly finding the best weapons and gear, particularly in hot drop locations, can easily set you up for the rest of the match.

Finding loot quickly can be a challenge in Apex Legends.

Most of the weapons, attachments, and armor that can be found in Apex Legends are scattered around the floor or in supply bins, however, there are plenty of other players racing to grab the loot first.

It can be difficult to cut down on your looting time if you don’t know where to start but Apex YouTuber brutal cleriC has revealed some simple tricks to make looting much faster.

Here are some of the best tips and tricks when it comes to improving your looting speed, whether you are a new or experienced Apex Legends player.

How to improve your looting speed in Apex Legends

  1. Get to know each location and develop paths that you can take to quickly pick up as much loot as possible.
  2. Pick up placeholder guns that can store any attachments you want before finding better weapons.
  3. For death boxes, you can learn the order of the loot inside to shave off a few seconds when looking for what you need.
  4. When near multiple supply bins, open them up at the same time to cut out the brief delay before you can pick up loot.
  5. You can also customize your settings for faster looting. There is a setting that can interrupt your looting before you can grab what you need, you can choose to turn this off as well.

Along with the fast looting tips, the Apex YouTuber also revealed some of his ideal backpack setups, which depend on the Legend being used and the current state of the game.

While some of these tricks don’t cut down on too much time individually, the time saved when using them together can be quite noticeable, particularly when opponents have landed nearby.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
