Why Apex Legends desperately needs to add a replay mode

As Apex Legends continues to grow in popularity, fans have pointed out it’s missing one major feature – a replay mode.

Respawn’s battle royale title has been a hit since launch, and enjoyed a boost in popularity thanks to the strong launch of Season 2 and the well-received solos event (the monetization backlash notwithstanding).

However, there are some changes that could still come to the game to make it even better than it is currently, and a good start would be adding in a replay system.

It doesn’t even have to be as robust as the one you see in Fortnite where you can look at a plethora of your past games, but just having the option to look back at your recent game to get highlights would go a long way to improving things.

TSM member Colton’ Viss’ Visser touched on how awesome it’d be to have a replay mode and what he would use it for.

“Another thing that would be super sick to have in (Apex Legends), a replay system,” he tweeted. “Could make some sick edits, and could probably use it as a good learning tool.”

For competitive players, like Viss, having the ability to study your performance in previous matches to see what you did right and wrong could go a long way.

He also mentions how you could make cool highlights, likely through the use of different camera angles, turning off the HUD, using filters, etc., which would be massive for YouTube content creators.

For right now, Apex Legends doesn’t have a replay system on the horizon but with enough player feedback, it could eventually become a possibility.

With other major battle royale games like Fortnite and PUBG having featured replay modes for much of their existence, Apex is now falling behind in this area.

There are bigger things to take care of first, such as the dreaded code: leaf error, but once those are ironed out we could maybe start seeing things like this and many others in the pipeline.

Apex Legends teams stop to play Cargo Bot volleyball and it’s hilarious

A couple of Apex Legends players have gone viral after they decided to stop their match to play a quick game of Volleyball on World’s Edge using Octane’s Jump Pad and the Cargo Bots. 

Given that the Apex Legends maps are pretty vast, fans of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale have got quite the playground to mess around in.

Yes, the name of the game is to be the last team standing, but you can also have some fun. That stretches all the way back to when the game launched, as players would reach the final circle and decide to finish things with a melee fight instead of using weapons and shields.

As time has gone on, we’ve seen other creative players come up with funny ideas too – some playing basketball with their abilities, and others deciding to try and play golf with the Tridents on Olympus. But now there’s a new one – Volleyball.

Apex players have got creative with what Respawn has given them.

The hilarious clip comes from Redditor BeanBag373_, who managed to get a few random opponents involved in their quite unusual plan. 

They managed to grab themselves a downed cargo bot without destroying it, and rolled it all the way up near the Epicentre where they had a Volleyball court set up using Octane’s jump pads and Pathfinder’s zipline. 

While you might think that they’d be sitting ducks and that someone might want to ruin the fun, but that wasn’t the case. In fact, more players saw what was going on and decided to join in – quickly figuring out what to do. It’s pretty funny, all in all, as the whole lobby got involved at the end.

Even though someone tried to take them down as the circle was closing in, the players didn’t stop their game. They carried on until just before the circle starts to become impossible to stand in. 

At that point, it devolved into chaos – slinging grenades, arc stars, and ultimates around. But ultimately, everyone involved had managed to magic up a viral moment and who knows what ideas it will inspire.
