Twitch streamer Apex Legends Twitch Prime Crown Cup on July 13, and decided to lean her head over and peek at her opponent’s screen during the closing minutes of a match in an effort to get an advantage.

Twitch hosted an Apex Legends tournament on July 13 in Las Vegas that featured Tim ‘TimTheTatman‘ Betar as the host with a variety of other streamers and celebrities, all focused on bringing home the victory.

Before the celebrity portion of the event started, streamers competed against each other to come home with the most kills. Alinity was in a huge hole so she decided to take a peek at another screen in an effort to make a comeback.

Alinity was part of an Apex Legends tournament in Las Vegas with other streamers.

However, instead of being placed next to their teammates each time the teams changed, the streamers remained in their normal spots which meant they could end up right next to their opponents.

Alinity took full advantage of this by leaning over and taking a look at her opponent’s screen and learning their location, relaying this to her teammate ANGRYPUG.

“I see them, they got rezzed,” she said after looking at both GoldGlove and Anthony Kongphan’s screens next to her. “They’re in the caves, Sequisha, Fem, and Anthony. Fem has a blue shield.”

It was played off as a gag with Tim jokingly suggested security should come in and get rid of her. This was all in good fun and it didn’t actually end up working out for her as she was quickly dispatched, despite the extra info. 

In a surprise to nobody at the event, King Richard was able to come home with the most kills before the tournament then moved on to the celebrity round.

In the end, it can be chalked up as a successful tournament as it brought in a consistent 100,000+ view count and gave Apex Legends a lot of publicity.

The tournament also highlighted the fact that exclusive loot is available. If you’re a Twitch Prime member, you can pick up Apex Legends loot from now until August 12.

Respawn and Twitch teamed up to offer several loot drops so be sure to grab those while they’re still available.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse tactical ability

Fuse can launch explosives from his mechanical arm. He’s coming in Season 8.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
