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)
2. A (Excellent):
R-301, Peacekeeper (without choke), Mastiff (only in the late game), G-7 Scout
3. B (Good):
Wingman, Flatline, Hemlok, R-99
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.
POPULAR Legend Guide #8: Mirage
1. Passive (Encore!): Automatically drop a decoy and cloak for five seconds when knocked down.
Whenever you get knocked down, you spawn a decoy and become invisible for 5 seconds (although your outline is very slightly visible at extremely close range).
2. Tactical (Psyche Out): Send out a holographic decoy to confuse the enemy.
Your tactical ability creates one decoy and sends them to a designated location. This ability does not make you invisible, so it’s best to do this when you’re out of enemy sightlines.
3. Ultimate (Vanishing Act): Deploy a team of Decoys to distract enemies while you cloak.
Your ultimate spawns a ton of decoys around you and makes you invisible for a few seconds. You can’t heal while you’re invisible, so it’s best used to reposition either to flank an enemy or to retreat from a losing battle.
---------------------Tips for playing Mirage--------------------
1. Using your tactical
Your tactical ability sends out a decoy to a designated location which is great for creating a diversion. For example, if your team is in a rough spot, you can put your decoy behind the enemy which will distract the enemy and give your team a chance to reposition. Because you can put your tactical anywhere, it’s also great for scouting far away compounds to determine whether or not they’re occupied. You'll find that enemies have a tough time not shooting at your decoy even if he's stationary.
2. Rely on your aim
Only the real Mirage can shoot which means that the second you start firing, your decoys become useless because you’ve outed yourself as the real Mirage. This means that when you shoot, you need to hit and kill.
3. When in doubt, use your decoys
Mirage has short cooldowns and no movement abilities. He is entirely reliant on his decoys for both attacking and retreating. You should never push without using your abilities and you should never die without using your abilities. It’s important to be aware that you can’t heal for a couple seconds while you’re invisible in your ultimate, so if you're using to retreat you need to relocate first and then heal.
4. Making the most of your passive
Mirage has a very interesting passive in that ideally you would never want to use it. That said, if you do get knocked you’ll want to be able to make the most of it. You have a 5 second window where you’re invisible so your best bet is to reposition as far as possible and get behind cover. Enemies that don’t know about your passive may shoot at your downed decoy, revealing their position. Also, using your invisibility to find enemies can provide useful information to your team allowing them to win the fight and revive you.
That was the final Legend Guide as we have now covered all 8 Legends in the game! Let me know if you want me to start another guide series (gun guides, drop routes, advanced tactics, or anything else!).
POPULAR So Legends...who did you cop???
So by now I'm sure many of you have hit that glorious level 23 right? Well once you hit 23 you will have a total of 12,000 legend tokens if you haven't previously spent any. At 12,000 you may buy your first legend without spending real cash!! So...with said legend tokens...which legend did you cop, or which one will you cop in the future??
I myself had to cop Mirage cause his abilities are the best! I really enjoy being able to trick my enemies and get that amazing flank position. Anyhow Legends, ThaMuffinMan has personal matters to attend to...so make sure you leave a comment and maybe even a follow for more content! ⬆️😊💚

POPULAR Legend Guide #6: Lifeline
1. Passive (Combat Medic): Revive knocked down teammates faster while protected by a shield wall. Healing items are used 25% faster.
Lifeline’s passive has 2 parts. When she revives teammates, she revives them much faster and is automatically protected by an unbreakable wall. When she uses healing consumables on herself, they are used 25% faster.
2. Tactical (D.O.C. Heal Drone): Call your Drone of Compassion to automatically heal nearby players over time.
Lifeline’s tactical deploys a health drone that heals all players that stand nearby it (including enemies). The drone applies a tether to anyone who’s being healed by it so you can easily see who is getting healed.
3. Ultimate (Care Package): Call in a drop pod full of high-quality defensive gear.
Lifeline calls in a care package on her position. Although the loot isn’t quite as good as the random care package drops, the loot is still very, very good and has a chance to drop legendary items. Even though the description says it drops defensive gear, it can also drop offensive gear like weapon attachments.
--------------------Tips for playing Lifeline-------------------
1. Using your tactical
Lifeline’s tactical is a very useful tool but it has a very long cooldown. It can be extremely good in the early game and can easily win your team a fight because it allows your team to stay healthy before enemies have looted heals. Your heal is slow, but it has a couple advantages over healing items. Firstly, it heals incrementally meaning that if you have to move before the healing is complete you still get healed some (unlike cancelling a med kit). It also allows you to keep your gun out and fight while you’re getting healed, rather than being a sitting duck when using med items.
2. Using your ultimate
Lifeline might very well have the most powerful ultimate in the game. It’s also one of the few ultimates in the game that’s useful when you’re not in combat. For this reason, it’s best to use Lifeline’s ultimate as soon as its off cooldown. It’s also best to funnel all the ultimate accelerants you find onto Lifeline so that she can get as many care packages as possible. This will help ensure that your team has better loot than the enemies.
3. Fighting with Lifeline
The most important thing to remember when play Lifeline is that you’re the only healer in the game. This influences everything you do, including fighting. You’re best when you’re behind your team and near cover. You should be the retreat point for your team so that if they take damage or end up getting knocked, you can heal them with your drone or revive them under the safety of your shield. For this reason, I recommend using a sniper with Lifeline. It can still be useful to have a close-range weapon as your secondary in case someone sneaks up behind you while you’re supporting your team, although it’s not necessary and an assault rifle will work just fine.
4. Understanding your weaknesses
Unlike most legends in the game, Lifeline has no movement abilities. This makes her the underdog in most gunfights because it will be easier for enemies to hit you. I recommend making the most of moving, sliding, and jumping to make yourself as unpredictable as possible and maximize your chances for survival. If you take shots, you can always hide behind cover and deploy your health drone.
POPULAR Who is the WORST Legend in Apex Legends?
I really can't decide who is the worst. I mean, every Legend is so unique and they all bring something to the table. The conversation for BEST is pretty interesting with like, 7 contenders (I think it is between Bangalore and Lifeline personally), but who is the WORST?

11. Use the Ping system to communicate
Apex Legends ping system lets you communicate with your squad by calling equipment, locations, threats, and more. It is mostly context sensitive. You just have to highlight something, press R1 / RB / middle mouse button to tell it to your team. As a rule, all relevant information is included, eg. B. Gear ratio or type. You can also press and hold the R1 / RB / middle mouse button to call up a wheel with more options, or double-press R1 / RB / middle mouse button to instantly display a hazard when searching.
12. Use the red balloons to quickly reinsert them and slide into a new area
Red balloons are scattered on the Apex Legends card. When you get to one, you can press Square / X / E to go up the connected line and reinsert your jump pack to slide into a new area. It's great to reach higher areas and travel fast, whether you want to escape from other players or the Circle.
13. Try and grab a knockdown shield if you can
The Shield is a practical protective barrier that can take you from ground looting and dead enemies. You can then pull it up when you are knocked down so that you stay alive long enough to be revived. In a shutdown state, you can use R2 to use it. It is very useful if you stay exposed or in the middle of a fight.
14. Learn how to use your inventory space and get more
Your basic inventory consists of eight slots, and each time you pick something up, a two-row grid appears in the center of the screen, showing you how much space you're using. You can increase your inventory in Apex Legends by finding backpacks. These give you more space depending on the level.
White level one - carry two more items
Blue level two - carry four more items
Purple level three - carry six more items
15. You can perform a Finisher on a downed player
Nothing makes a victory sweeter than rubbing someone's face in it. That's exactly what you can do with the square / X / E button. Just approach an enemy you've knocked down and hit square / X / E to perform on Apex Legends Finisher move. You can unlock and choose other options by selecting a character in the Legends section of the game menu.
POPULAR WHY THERE ARE NO TITANS IN APEX LEGENDS
Speaking to IGN, Executive Producer Drew McCoy said that they were, but they just didn't work within the battle royale genre.
"During development of Apex Legends, we prototyped a lot of stuff," said McCoy. "Having come from Titanfall 2, we tried wall-running and double jumping and triple jumping, and all sorts of crazy stuff. And the goal of the game from a development standpoint was to create something strategic and masterable and learnable and very deep, and a lot of those mechanics were detrimental to those goals."
The Titans made combat very hard to read, continued McCoy, which is why Respawn decided to have three characters per team as opposed to a four-man or five-man squad. "Because the combat encounters were getting too complex and too hairy, where you couldn’t mentally keep track of where everyone was and the state of all the stuff. So we talked about our action block phase of development. That’s actually something we take with us throughout the whole process of development. It’s not just prototyping, it’s also iteration. We playtest the game for hours every day so that we can be making sure that we’re hitting our goals as far as what this game is trying to accomplish. So for this game, the depth of the game and the strategy of the game really was the lynchpin on deciding these mechanics."
