The world record held in Apex Legends for most kills by a squad in a single match has been broken by a team on Playstation 4.
The trio of players, whose in-game names are ‘Gaitor_423,’ ‘Pensatas,’ and ‘ImCadillackin,’ managed to get a whopping 45 eliminations in a single match.
This blows past the previous console world record of 40 kills in a single match, which was set by ‘CruisingPaladin,’ ‘rickyjosephbarr,’ and ‘zcj,’ on February 16, although those players were on the Xbox One.
In fact, not only is this new eliminations total a new world record for console players, it’s a new world record outright, as their total also surpassed the 41 eliminations that PC players ‘ssjfpsTV,’ ‘ItsScubby,’ ‘SHAAFFER’ got on February 12.
The image above shows the remarkable statistics that the new record holders managed to accumulate in their record-breaking match.
To put into perspective exactly how impressive this feat is, just remember that there were only 57 other players on the map at the start, meaning that they eliminated over 78% of the entire lobby.
It would be hard to argue against ImCadillackin being named MVP of the match, considering he led the team in kills (19), damage dealt (2857), players revived (4), and players respawned (1).
This is the third record to have been broken in Apex Legends over the past two days, as former Overwatch pro player Mendokusaii set the record for most PC solo eliminations on February 19, the same day that a PS4 player set the same mark on console.
Since trios is the only mode currently available in Apex Legends, there is a limited amount of world records available for players to set and/or break, and you can check out the full list of current records by visiting our Apex Legends world records hub.
