POPULAR Gun Review: Havoc
The Havoc is the first new gun introduced to Apex Legends. It's an assault rifle that uses energy ammo and, like the devotion, takes a bit of time to charge up and reach its maximum rate of fire.
The Havoc is the first gun in the game that can make use of two different hop ups: the turbocharger and the select fire receiver. The turbocharger reduces the charge up time, allowing it to reach its maximum rate of fire much more quickly. The select fire turns it from an assault rifle to a laser beam. The laser beam takes a long time to charge up, but is hitscan rather than projectile, meaning that there's no bullet drop or travel time.
Without any hop ups the Havoc is pretty bad. The charge up time is very noticeable and there's a solid half-second where the gun doesn't shoot at all. This means that unless an enemy doesn't know you're aiming at them, you're probably gonna lose the fight.
With the select fire the Havoc is even worse. The charge up time is horrendous and makes it very difficult to time the laser beam correctly. If you do hit with the laser beam, it doesn't really do much damage. I imagine that the select fire Havoc probably has the lowest dps of any gun in the game.
With the turbocharger the Havoc is very good, but it's basically a slightly worse Devotion. It doesn't have as large of a bullet capacity but it does have less recoil than the Devotion. The problem is that with these turbocharged guns, bullet capacity is usually more important simply because of how fast you can empty a clip.
Overall I would not recommend using the Havoc. I would probably place it in the D-tier without attachments, F-tier with the select fire, and S-tier with the turbocharger.
POPULAR Wallrunning and Double jump movement
Data miners have already begun browsing through the game files - and have come across a few that could initiate Titanfall's movement and titans.
First reported by @RealApexLeaks on Twitter, fans at one of Respawn's other major franchise companies may soon see a crossover between the two, as files suggest that a Titanfall-like game mode might be released for Apex Legends. Especially in this mode the JumpKit is mentioned, which has become an integral part of the movement in Titanfall.
In Titanfall, small jetpacks are strapped around a player's waist, allowing players to temporarily use the engines of the item to help them gain height or protect themselves from danger. Wallrunning was also featured in the files, which means that players from Apex Legends soon ran along bare vertical faces to fight or escape their enemies.
Originally, Apex Legends should be Titanfall 3, with different files created for the game found in Apex Legends. RealApexLeaks indicates that they are not residual files from the original Titanfall 3 development, as they were not in the game before and were added to today.
POPULAR My Top 5 Favorite Guns
I posted a gun tier list last week that got a lot of attention and (as expected) a lot of comments with people wondering why their favorite guns didn't make it higher on the tier list. While I still think the tier list is accurate (I might move Wingman up to A-tier), the point of this post is to show that personal preference matters much, much more than any sort of tier list. If you feel like a god when using a specific gun then you should keep using that gun even if it isn't "objectively" the best. Here are my 5 favorite guns.
1. Prowler with select fire
The Prowler with select fire is easily my favorite gun in the game. Its damage per bullet isn't all that great, but it has an incredibly high rate of fire with virtually no recoil and doesn't require a barrel mod. This is probably the best close-to-mid range weapon in the game. Just make sure to remember to put it on full auto once you get the select fire attachment.
The Wingman is one of those guns that either makes you feel like a god or like the worst player of all time. When you hit your shots, you're almost guaranteed to win the fight, but missing just once can cause your death. It doesn't have any damage drop off, but not being able to put a scope on it makes it difficult to kill enemies at long range. Like the Prowler, the Wingman is also best at close-to-mid range, but it can be used at longer ranges if needed.
There's not much that needs to be said about the Kraber. It's a one-shot kill headshot though any armor in the game. It only has 12 bullets, so it's really only good in the late game. Nothing feels better than getting the insta-kill headshots and getting a quick knock or two can easily allow your team to push and win the game. The biggest question with the Kraber is what do you pair it with? I'd recommend a solid all-around gun like the 301 or Spitfire, but you can also pair it with a Wingman if you want to really test your aim.
The R-99 is a fantastic gun once its fully modded. It has very little recoil and a very fast rate of fire. This makes it perfect as a "finishing" gun. You pop a couple shots with your main weapon and switch to the R-99 to spray down your weakened targets. The R-99 is best at close ranges because it's crucial to hit all of your shots. The high rate of fire means that you empty a clip very quickly and you don't want to be stuck reloading in the middle of a fight.
I don't think the Hemlok is all that good but for some reason I just love using it. Its 3-round burst is surprisingly effective hip-firing at close range which makes it one of the few guns that can genuinely be used at all ranges. With a 2x 4x scope, you can easily attack at mid ranges with burst fire and long ranges with single fire. This means that the Hemlok can completely replace your need for a sniper which allows you to have a stronger close-range weapon as your secondary.

POPULAR Guide to Guns - 04. Alternator SMG
Twin barrel full-auto SMG.
Alternator was a Pilot Primary Weapon in Titanfall 2.
Slow-firing but packing decent damage for an SMG, the Alternator has high vertical but very little horizontal recoil, which, combined with its exceptionally quick reload time, makes it an easy and versatile weapon for newer players. Put an extended mag and a holo on it and you’re good to go, but don’t expect it to out-DPS a good Assault Rifle or LMG.
Base Damage: 13
Leg Damage: 11
Headshot Damage: 19 (1.46x)
Base Rate of Fire: 640 RPM
Base Magazine Capacity: 16
Ammo Type: Light Rounds
[Extended Mag is essential]
⚠Pros & Cons
Best Hip fire capability
Quick reload time
Lowest capacity mag
Alternator, the DPS value for this SMG is 130. The Prowler is 182 and R99 is 216. So the alternator has the lowest capacity and has the lowest rate of fire and the least damage per second. The only reason you would pick up this weapon is when you literally can not find anything else.
It's completely overshadowed by the R99, but I like the slower fire because it's easier to consistently track down enemies in hectic melee combat.
It's rarely worn late, but it's an ordinary weapon you can find right away, and it does the job really well.

POPULAR Apex thoughts also should say this mostly a wraith guide
Well I was playing and I think the game is amazing rn my favorite character is wraith for the simple fact I feel she is the most toxic and she cute but beside that she is honestly a great character her passive tells you if someone is looking at you or nearby you which is a useful ability on it's own but with into the void you can use it if your pushing someone and if they notice you or look at you, you will know so you can go into the void to make sure they dont get there guaranteed damage off which is very useful granted there is always a time where it cuts you off and only at the time which makes it more balanced now her special since I dont wanna talk about her into the void all day now her special is amazing too if your leaving your teammates behind you can drop one to help or one at the respawns beacon if one of your teammates have died so they can go there and revive quick or using it around a house so you can switch around entrances confusing your opponents and works well if someone has bloodhound so you know there position now if you want to get it in the house undetected you can use your ability into the void with your special so you cant get hit or them to know your placing it and you got reallllyyyy fast which is great so this makes it easier to rush opponents and not get hurt with your squad to make a tactical push this is great with Gibraltar for when you finish it and might get shot he can instantly come in and place a shield down to help the squad or instead of using into the void that girl Bangalore can just place a bunch of smoke to hide your cover wraith is an amazing character I enjoy well if anyone reads this or anything hope you enjoyed my little review on wraith #guide #wraith #apex
POPULAR Apex thoughts with Smiggs
*POOF* ~Wizard Smiggs appears~
Well well well.
A young mootato I see. I bet you’re wondering why a wizard had blessed you with his presence?
Well, it’s to inform you about my thoughts on this...new battle royal.
It’s so hot right now if you didn’t notice and live under a rock like Patrick.
Continue reading for my inside look on #ApexLegends and thoughts about it.
THE EXECUTION OF LAUNCH AND REVEAL!
-this is where I’m going to start.
It was a fantastic job! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
This wizard was very pleased. Hardly any developer tries this approach of revealing a game and releasing it on the same day.
It just doesn’t happen. Leaks, reveals, trailers, hype build up...its been the common formula for decades!
Then these sack wads just come busting through the gates with hard hats on saying “naw f that, here is this bad ass game, and it’s available NOW! Better yet, if you didn’t notice how kickass we were, I’ll top it off...ITS FREE!”
Crazy. I know!
And the best part of it all, the servers held up better than most triple A titles do on launch!! How the hell!?
10/10 reveal and launch. Bravo.

THEIR IN GAME MECHANIC DECISIONS!!!!
This isn’t going to be a tips and tricks post, but more rather an insight on their decisions.
3 man squads was a long time playlist I’ve dreamed about since PUBG dominance. I’ve always been in scenarios where I had 2 buddies on but not a third. I think a lot of people were this way.
Destiny is this way too.
So why was this never implemented?
Apex devs just said:
It’s a joy and a curse though. It’s the only playlist they have at the moment!!! 😧
They centered the map layout and character builds around team gameplay. So I’m not exactly sure how this will span out to duos and singles with the class abilities, but I think it will handle just fine.
Looting is a bit...well it could use some work.
I get what they did though.
With the influence of partnered streamers and advice, they wanted to cater it to them a bit for the competitive edge. Thus, making the loot mechanics benefit those who kill and play aggressive....FINALLY A GAME THAT DOES THIS!!!!
But with this, comes great frustrations.
It is still taking me a hard while to get the mechanics down, looting familiarized, and ability to actually get kills.
I’m not use to fighting aggressive teams one after the other with little to no breaks in between.
ITS MAD TOUGH!
They laid out the map with what seems to be rotating loot cashes that get tiered in quality.
The benefit to this is, well, guaranteed good loot.
The downside, is that it leaves those who want a relaxed start, with very crappy loot...and honestly it’s very disappointing.
They could still bump up these areas to guarantee ok weapons in all areas or 1 gun in a building.
I’ve dropped plenty of times and ran to multiple buildings, only to find attachments for a non existing weapon lol.
Like wtf. Really? Not even a pistol?
Of course we die after 5 minutes of searching rubbish and forced to go to an already now looted sector to die by a team that is decked to the nines.
But I digress. Pros and cons.
I can say, ohhhh my freaking god, to the dang revive mechanics!!!!!! 🙀🙀
What a Devine thing!
The simple fact you can revive a teammate that has been thirsted by a blood sucking pest of a Mississippi mosquito, is just absolutely a blessing.
And it also creates an opportunity for higher kill games as people can get added back to the match at any point in time, just to die again by these wizard hands!!!
The abilities are very balanced in my opinion and make for great creative teamwork and fire fights. Love it. Keeps every encounter new and exciting. Very much needed in a game that goes stale with metas and generic tactics players eventually flock to like a herd of sheep.
What I don’t like most times is how long it takes to kill people.
The different tier armors are great when you have them, but a real pain when you’re against them.
With limit ammo slots and what seems to take half your mag to kill a slippery enemy, it’s a little much.
The upside to this, is that it gives a player a chance to counter if they get shot at first.
There is a brief reaction moment that can make it or break it for a player that gets caught off guard.
After that, it boils down to creativity and skill. Which is a damn good thing.
So that positive out weighs the negative in my opinion and should stay.
The change I would make is to increase the ammo compacity. Make it more per storage slot or something. It’s tough running out and have another 3rd or 4th party running towards you. EVERYONE is aggressive players in this game and it’s incredible.
Gold tier loot has very OP perks and properties. Just insane. Good if you got them, real pain in the wizard staff if you don’t. Don’t exactly think they should last much longer. They are rare, but a little much.
I say this because this is the FIRST battle royal game that I believe, has the BEST potential as a true competitive game in its category.
All the others leave too much loot chance on luck and algorithms while APEX is more structured, has recoil patterns, is teamwork oriented, rewards the firefight winners, fast paced with lots of action, and just overall less random. It’s putting skill and strategy that one gets with a multiplayer game, into a Battle Royal.
And it’s so much appreciated.
In all honesty, Respawn deserves this success. Titanfall series was very underrated and should have had more success.
I hope this makes them more sustainable, and they continue with the direction of listening to its core community players.
That is all folks.
The wizard is drained of his mana.
POPULAR How to get the PERFECT drop every time
When you jump out of the ship, immediately divebomb straight down until your speed is at least 145. Then you can level out and aim directly at your intended drop spot. The magic number from this point on is 140. Any time your speed gets below 140, dive straight down again until you’re going above 140, then level out again. Your goal is for your speed to always be around 140 (can be faster if it’s a short drop).
If you do this correctly, you will always be the first to land. Not only will you always be first, but you can carry insane distances. Using this strategy I’ve made it to drops nearly 1000m away.
POPULAR Gun Tier List
1. S (Best in the game)
Longbow, Spitfire, Prowler (with select fire), Peacekeeper (with choke), Devotion (with turbocharger), Kraber (only in the late game)

4. C (Mediocre):
Eva-8, Alternator, Triple take, RE-45
5. D (Bad):
Prowler (without select fire), Devotion (without turbocharger), P2020
6. F (Absolute garbage):
If you have any questions as to why a gun is in one tier and not in another let me know in the comments and I'll be happy to explain.

POPULAR The Beginner's Guide - 04
16. You can craft character and gun skins instead of buying them
You'll be able to make metals as you make them, then use them to craft character trays and weapon wraps. Just go to the Legend or Armor sections of the game menu, select a character or weapon, then select the skin or sheath you want, and press the Rectangle / X / Right mouse button to unlock it. If you have enough metal, then it is yours.
17. You can see where the supply ship will land
The supply ship in Apex Legends is a dangerous area with high prey, which flies around the map at the beginning of the game (the white symbol above) and ends shortly after the start of the game. Where he lands is marked on the map with a blue symbol at the beginning of the game. So you can foretell how to go in or ambush someone as soon as they leave the ground.
17. Hold jump to climb.
There's actually some kind of wall climbing in the game - of course, no real wall race or triple jumps like Titanfall, but you can climb up to 3 or 4 times that you sprint on the wall and hold the jump button while you go up watch. Often your character comes surprisingly far over a wall and on ledges that you believe they would not consider accessible without access. It is worth practicing and mastering!
18. Use doors to climb
Use doors to climb even higher - old-school PUBG players will recognise this one. Open a door and wall-climb onto the top of that, and then from there wall-climb further up the wall to reach otherwise inaccessible ledges and roofs of those mid-height buildings. Great way to surprise people.
19. You can mute squadmates
Head to the second tab of your inventory in-game, and go to that player's name where there's an option to mute (you're welcome).
20. Text-to-speech option
There's also both a text-to-speech and speech-to-text function - the text-to-speech is PC only as far as we can tell. They're found in the main menu's settings page at the bottom of Game Settings under Accessibility Options.
POPULAR Legend Guide #7: Caustic
1. Passive (Nox Vision): Allows you to see enemies through your gas.
Enemies in your gas glow green so that you can see them.
2. Tactical (Nox Gas Trap): Drop canisters that release deadly Nox gas when shot or triggered by enemies.
You store up to 3 canisters of gas traps that trigger when an enemy walks near it or shoots it. You can have a total of 6 active traps at a time, and can pick up active traps to move them around. Enemies can disable a trap by shooting it at its base.
3. Ultimate (Nox Gas Grenade): Blankets a large area in Nox gas.
Caustic throws a grenade that explodes into a large gas cloud.
---------------------Tips for playing Caustic-------------------
1. Fight in buildings and in choke points.
Caustic’s kit is entirely centered around his gas. Although his ultimate can still be useful in an open area, both his ultimate and tactical abilities are best used inside buildings and in choke points. The gas damages, slows, and disorients enemies which forces them to avoid it at all costs. By taking close-quarters fights inside buildings, Caustic can force enemies into his gas and win the fight with ease. Be aware that although your gas doesn’t damage your teammates, it does disorient them, so try to communicate exactly where enemies are so that your teammates can help you with the fight.
2. Feel free to hot drop
Caustic is the only legend whose tactical ability deals damage. This makes him exceptional in early game hot drops when people are frantically running around searching for a gun. By placing your traps around doors you can make sure your back is covered and can prevent enemies from looting. Be aware that it does take a second for your traps to deploy so keep that in mind if someone is on your tail.
3. Activating your traps
Even if an enemy doesn’t trigger your gas traps, you can shoot them to activate them yourself. This is a great way to create diversions which can win you the fight. This also can be used to pin enemies and force them to reroute because they cannot walk through the gas. This can either be used to force the enemy into a specific area where your team can kill them, or to help you escape a bad situation.
4. Choosing your weapons
The best weapon loadout for Caustic is a sniper and a shotgun. I recommend the Longbow and the Peacekeeper. You need the shotgun or another close-range gun because that’s where you’re strongest and where you should be trying to force fights with your gas. Even though it may seem counterintuitive, a sniper is a great compliment to this because the biggest weakness a sniper has is getting pushed from behind. Because Caustic can protect his flanks, he doesn’t have to worry about getting pushed while sniping so sniping with him is very powerful.
