Team’s show of mercy backfires in Apex Legends clutch

A hilarious agreement between four Apex Legends players created one of the most bizarre finishes to a match, with a lone player coming out on top against a stacked 3v1.

The Apex Legends community always come up with incredible concepts or ideas to make the game a bit more lively, and one of the strangest trends has been a melee rumble when players unequip all of the loot in their inventory.


While not a requirement, some players can see it as an impromptu mini-game or even a challenge in and of itself. But sometimes teams can overestimate their chances of winning when partaking in these sort of fights.

Respawn EntertainmentA small mercy turned into a savage comeback win.

In a Reddit clip, user ‘willster191’ found themselves in a peculiar situation when their Apex Legends match was down to just them and a full three-man squad.


After being allowed to revive, Willster made the customary gesture of repeatedly crouching before they started to drop everything in their inventory. Realizing what they were doing, the full squad acknowledged his challenge and followed suit, commencing the brawl which they dubbed “The Redditor’s 1v3.”

Willster might be well-practiced in the art of Apex Legends melee since they were able to meet the challenge with flair. The 1v1 against Pathfinder was extremely close, but after dancing around a bit the Forward Scout was out for the count.

Astonishingly, the other team let the player heal up before taking on the next contestant, but Willster was already in the groove. They landed four out of five swings on Wraith, to quickly cut it down to a 1v1.

Going up against Bangalore, the player instantly landed their first three hits without getting touched. But it seems like the last player was feeling the pressure since they immediately retreated and sent some pot-shots toward the gunless Lifeline.

The lone player was actually able to pull out the Fight Club-style victory and tipped their hat off to their competition.

“Shout out to FainRaVen_Mixer, Jaedong222, and ViceroysNorth for being class acts throughout this,” Willster said. “Letting me heal between and generally not lasering me when things started looking bad.”


This has to be one of the most bizarre wins in Apex Legends’ short history but the Champions screen was definitely deserved after going through the strange gauntlet.

All Apex Legends Season 6 weapon TTKs revealed: body vs head

An Apex Legends fan has taken the time to break down every single weapon’s time-to-kill (TTK) for Season 6, all the way from the lowly Mozambique to the deadly R-99.

For those who are still not sure which guns to prioritize in Apex Legends’ sixth season, help is on the way. While everyone’s comfort with recoil control and the game’s attachment loot RNG makes gun preference entirely subjective, it is worth knowing how each gun performs at a base level.


As such, a YouTuber by the name of ‘Davengeful’ has blessed King’s Canyon’s best with the nitty-gritty details of how each of the battle royale’s weapons performs in a standardized lab environment. 

Standing within 10 meters of a red training dummy (or, technically, ‘DUMMIE,’ which stands for Digital Utility Mock Man Intelligent Example), Davengeful tested all of the game’s Season 6 assault rifles, light machine guns, submachine guns, and shotguns. Standing further away, they also tested the sniper rifles.


For these tests, Davengeful did not use any hop-up attachments and simply fired with perfect accuracy to gain a base stat. That means there is no Selectfire Prowler data to be used, just the gun’s typical burst behavior. Still, the regular version of the SMG remains one of the strongest guns in the game.

As no surprise to players who have dropped into a game of Apex Legends even once, the Mozambique is a grotesque weapon. While its headshot TTK is decent (and faster than some of the game’s other guns), its body TTK is a whopping 4.504 seconds. 

For context, that’s slightly longer than it would take for you to down four enemies, hitting just body shots, with the R-99.

The R-99 simply continues to shred enemies in Season 6.

With TTK listed in seconds and no hop-ups included, here’s how the Season 6 list of weapons stacks up. This is current as of October 16, 2020, so all data is subject to change with the release of new patches.

As it stands, the list proceeds downward from light weapons, to heavy, to sniper, to energy, to shotguns, and, finally, the highly touted R-99 Supply Drop gift.

Apex Legends Season 6 Weapon TTKs

Gun Headshot TTK Body TTK
RE-45 1.103 1.389
P2020 1.231 1.770
R-301 0.689 1.262
Alternator 1.040 1.517
G7 Scout 1.009 1.741
Wingman 1.009 1.834
Spitfire 0.785 1.453
Prowler 0.785 1.262
Hemlok 0.689 1.549
Flatline 0.817 1.231
Sentinel 2.053 3.581
Charge Rifle 2.242 3.517
Longbow 1.009 2.625
Triple Take 1.009 1.741
Volt 0.913 1.231
Devotion 1.103 1.581
Havoc 1.103 1.612
L-Star 0.722 1.326
Mozambique 1.198 4.504
EVA-8 1.262 1.741
Mastiff 1.198 1.262
Peacekeeper 1.294 1.549
R-99 0.850 1.103

As you’ll notice, the R-99 is entirely deserving of its rarity because it has the game’s fastest body TTK and one of the fastest headshot TTKs. Its longtime companion among revered light guns, the R-301, is also devastating — with the fastest headshot TTK in the entire game.


While the sniper rifles may feel underpowered from this table, it should be remembered that this is only raw, base data. Snipers are easier to hit shots with from range, thanks to scopes and bullet velocity, so players shouldn’t be discouraged just by the data found here.

Still, they should be discouraged from using the Mozambique. The numbers aren’t lying with that one.
