Guide to Guns - 06 R-99

The R-99 is standard SMG for Apex Legends. It’s a fast firing weapon, uses light ammo, and holds 18 rounds in a magazine. The SMGs are about getting a lot of balls at short range. The R-99 SMG is the best example of this. While the Prowler and Generator defeat the R-99 SMG in damage, the R-99 SMG is much more accurate with a fast rate of fire. Despite the R-99's blistering fire rate, the weapon falls short in almost every other category when compared to other SMGs. That's not all though, as the weapon also struggles with accuracy and is primarily best used in close quarter combat.
Base Damage: 12
Headshot Damage: 18 (1.5x)
Base Rate of Fire: 1080 RPM
Base Magazine Capacity: 18
Ammo Type: Light Rounds
⚠ Attachments
⚠Spray Pattern
"R - 99" will be a weapon with intense recoil. Since it is difficult to handle with the severity of recoil as in the image above when not attaching the attachment, it is recommended that Aim will be easier to take if suppressing recoil by attaching " barrel stabilizer " or " standard stock ".
The R-99 will outperform the Alternator at close-range due to its much higher fire rate, which ups the gun’s DPS by a considerable degree. And this trait alone is what makes it the currently most sought-after baseline SMG in Apex Legends. However, at longer ranges the R-99’s high recoil will often let you down unless you have a lot of experience with this weapon, and a Prowler with a Hop-Up is more popular – for good reason.

Guide to Guns - 05. R-301 Carbine

The R-301 Carbine is an assault rifle weapon which uses Light rounds. It has a magazine of 18 (without attachments). It does 14 damage per shot, and 28 per headshot. The R-301 Carbine is able to switch between single and automatic firing modes.
Although the R-301 Carbine is among one of the weakest Assault Rifles in the category, it does have some rather impressive accuracy and fire-rate.
Base Damage: 14
Leg Damage: 11 (0.78x)
Headshot Damage: 28 (2x)
Base Rate of Fire: 720 RPM
Base Magazine Capacity: 18
Extended Magazine Capacity: 22, 26, 28
Ammo Type: Light Rounds
⚠ Attachments
⚠Spray Pattern
⚠Pros & Cons
- Pros
High Accuracy
2x Headshot Multiplier
High Rate of Fire
Good Performance at close/medium range
Excellent Performance at Long Range
- Cons
Low Damage
Low Base Ammo Capacity
The R-301 Carbine is currently the best AR, replacing some of Flatline's damage for a faster rate of fire and easier ride in general. The low recoil and high bullet speed make the Carbine excellent at most distances (it can be used with great effect even when switching to single-shot mode) and with a good lengthened Mag, barrel and shank, there is no assault rifle deadlier.
The R301 might have less damage per shot but it's got a better 'Rate of Fire' and getting that damage on target is increadibly easy. Also it uses light ammo which has got to be the most easily found ammo type.

Guide to Guns - 03. Peacekeeper

The Peacekeeper is an anti-personnel energy lever-action shotgun, introduced in Apex Legends. The quad-barrel shotgun can be modified with additional attachments to its stock, barrel and sights, including a specialized muzzle choke that narrows the spread of its shots for more concentrated fire.
As with most any lever-action firearm, the lever must be actuated with every shot to chamber another round; a skilled user can provide a rate of fire similar to the semi-automatic Mastiff shotgun.
Base Damage: 10 per pellet, 110 (11x10) for all 11 pellets
Headshot Damage: 15 per pellet (1.5x), 165 (11x15) for all 11 pellets
Base Rate of Fire: 58 RPM
Base Magazine Capacity: 6
Ammo Type: Shotgun Shells
⚠ Attachments
If you put a choke on it, you can charge it with an aim and its power is raised. Even without choke, it is strong in SG but it gets stronger if you are wearing choke
⚠Spray Pattern
⚠Pros & Cons
- Pros
A wide spread at long distances.
Incredible damage to opponents who are close.
- Cons
Fatal delay between shots
Poor accuracy than EVA-8
The Peacekeeper fires 11 pellets in a star formation with each shot, allowing it to deal phenomenal damage up close. It’s also the slowest shotgun on the list, so the question is whether your twitch-aiming is good enough to hit your shots, or whether you’ll be danced around by an enemy with the more nimble EVA-8. You can equip a Hop-Up to the Peacekeeper, which enables you to hold down ADS in order to slowly gain a tighter spread on your shots. All in all the Peacekeeper is the best Shotgun around, with the possible exception of the Mastiff – though the Peacekeeper has longer effective range, so even there the Peacekeeper has a claim to the throne.

Guide to Guns - 02. VK-47 Flatline

From now on, I will open the door of Gun #Guide with VK-47. I hope it helps to play!
"Full-auto with a punch"
The VK-47 Flatline is an assault rifle with heavy rounds. It is the gun associated with Titanfall 2's V-47 Flatline. As the name implies, this is a real-world AK-47 based model. It has a magazine of 20 (without attachments). It deals 16 damage per shot and 32 per head shot. The Flatline can switch between single and automatic ignition mode.
Holding a total of 20 rounds per magazine, the full-automatic VK-47 Flatline features some of the highest damage rates in the AR category.
When paired with its rather impressive stats across accuracy, range, and stability, it's safe to say that the VK-47 is one of the best overall Assault Rifles available.
Base Damage: 16
Headshot Damage: 32 (2x)
Base Rate of Fire: 600 RPM
Base Magazine Capacity: 20
Ammo Type: Heavy Rounds
⚠ Attachments
⚠Spray Pattern
⚠Pros & Cons
- Pros
2x Headshot Multiplier
High Damage
Good Performance at close/medium range
Good Ammo Depletion Time
- Cons
Poor Accuracy
Poor Long Range Performance
The flatline is what you might call the basic assault rifle in terms of statistics. With decent flat damage values, a high clip size, and a relatively easy-to-control spray pattern, you can not wrongly do anything with the Flatline in any area, especially if you've equipped it with decent attachments. Unfortunately, in the eyes of many of the R-301, it has remained in the dust, but it is still a weapon that needs caution.

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

Guide to Guns - 01. Prologue

Following the Beginner's Guide series, I'am now ready to start a Gun review.... My Apex Legends guns guide will go over every single weapon currently in Apex Legends from Mozambique to Kraber. All of the Apex Legends' guns are very different (as expected), but thankfully they can be categorized into familiar weapons classes. Therefore, I will review it according to their classification. But the order is my own🤣
Today I will start with a brief overview before the review. You guys are reading my 'The Beginner's Guide' tho? Unlike that, this guide will only talk about guns.
Weapons and bullets in Apex Legends work a bit differently than other Battle Royale games like PUBG and Fortnite. I know that many people will ask the following questions for the first time.
⚠No Hit scan
There is no hit scan in Apex Legends. All projectiles have a travel time, no matter what weapon they are fired from. So you have to achieve a greater range with your goal.
⚠Bullet Drop
Shoot some bullets into the distance with any weapon. The projectile velocity (and thus the height of the waste) is variable between the weapons.
⚠Damage drop
Unlike Fortnite or PUBG, there’s no direct reduction in damage depending on how far a bullet travels. Even a shotgun pellet will hit for maximum damage over great distances; but of course, you’ll never hit a distant target with more than one pellet at a time.
⚠Spray Patterns
Like CSGO, most of learning how to play successfully with Apex Legends' weapons is to learn the spray pattern of each gun. A good way to do this is to fire against the wall, look at the direction the gun pulls you out of the bullet hole and make the opposite movement with the mouse to cancel the pattern during launch.
My plan is to review two guns a week and I will write it with various wikis and guides. And I'll take a look at the opinions of Moot and the corresponding guns in various communities.
Please look forward to!

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.

Legend Guide #8: Mirage

----------------------Basic Info-----------------------
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!).

Legend Guide #7: Caustic

---------------------Basic Info----------------------
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.

Legend Guide #6: Lifeline

---------------------Basic Info-----------------------
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.

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.

Legend Guide #5: Gibraltar

-------------------Basic Info-------------------
1. Passive (Gun Shield): Aiming down sights deploys a gun shield that blocks incoming fire.
This very powerful passive automatically creates a shield that covers the upper half of your body every time you aim down sights. If the shield takes enough damage, it will break. Once it breaks you have to wait for it to recharge before it’s active again.
2. Tactical (Dome of Protection): Throw down a dome-shield that blocks attacks for 15 seconds.
Gibraltar throws down a large transparent dome that blocks all attacks (both friendly and enemy). This is a great resource if your squad is taking fire or you need to revive a teammate.
3. Ultimate (Defensive Bombardment): Call in a concentrated mortar strike on a marked position
Very similar to Bangalore’s ultimate, but covers a smaller area. This makes the strike more concentrated so if it’s placed well, it can seriously damage or even knock down enemies.
---------------------Tips for playing Gibraltar-----------------
1.Using the dome to your advantage
It’s important to remember that the dome blocks all attacks including those of your teammates. Your team has a massive advantage however because they get the benefit of choosing when to exit and enter the dome. By popping in and out of the dome you and your team can get free shots on an enemy which can help swing the fight in your favor. Of course, if the fight is completely losing you can simply use the dome to cover your backs while you run away to safety.
2. Using cover with your passive
Your passive covers most of the upper-half of your body, so if you can get behind cover that protects your lower half, you can shoot at enemies while being almost entirely protected. When Gibraltar pulls this off, his incredible defensive capabilities makes him one of the best offensive legends in the game.
3. Fighting with Gibraltar
Gibraltar is best in close quarters and at sniping range. In close quarters your passive makes it very difficult for enemies to land shots on you, especially if they are hip-firing. For this reason it’s important to always ADS with Gibraltar even in close combat situations. Likewise, sniping behind cover is very effective because you can avoid the first shot with your passive. This gives you one free sniper shot at the enemy where you have the chance to knock them while you can’t get hurt.
4. Play with caution
With all of his shields and defensive capabilities, it’s easy to feel invincible with Gibraltar. This can often lead you to overextend or take fights in a bad position. Always remember that your shields can break and your dome is just temporary. If you run out into the open and rely on your defenses to protect you, a smart enemy will simply wait out your shields and take you down while your abilities are on cooldown.

6. Move faster in Apex Legends by holstering your weapon
Getting about is always key in a battle royale game whether it’s to reach loot or get out of the circle. In Apex Legends you can hold triangle/Y to holster your weapon and move faster.
7. Choose a legend that fits the squad
When you start a match Apex Legends teams are chosen one at a time, player by player which means not only might someone pick ‘your’ character before you, they might also choose a similar type. If you’re second, or especially third, you want to go for something that better balances the team.
8. Respawn allies who’ve died in battle.
In battle royale games, you want to stay alive as long as possible — to be the last player standing. But if you or your teammate gets knocked down, and can’t be revived in time, there’s still hope.
9. Manage your inventory
Keeping a tidy inventory is fundamental to proper gameplay as it's always good to collect and keep what you need while getting rid of things that you don't. Since it's a battle for loot in the beginning, you might want to help a teammate who could not find anything. If you want to drop an item in Apex Legends to get another person to hit the loading screen with the hit options, select the item you want and click
10. Know your colors
The color scheme used in Apex Legends can be a powerful tool if you have become familiar with it. The colors stand for rare objects, with gray being the rarest, then blue, then purple and finally gold the rarest.
Loot dropped by excreted players shines in the color of the rarest item in the supply, making it easier for you to decide which stock to loot first.
Colors also play a role in combat, as the color of the damage figures that appear when opposing players strike indicates how rare armor they carry.

LV.19 Genius 16 days ago 1,710 8 12

The Beginner's Guide - 01

1. The maximum health of the player is 200 HP with maximum armor
Each Apex Legends character has a base state of 100 hp. The armor you can collect can add up to between two and four 25HP. This means that the maximum health you can go against is 200 HP.
2. The color of the damage numbers shows you enemy
Enemy numbers will be displayed and you will learn a lot about what you are getting into.
Red numbers mean that your opponent has no armor
White numbers indicate level 1 armor
Blue numbers show the armor of the second level
Purple numbers show the level 3armor
Yellow numbers indicate a head shot
By understanding these numbers, you can effectively see how strong the threat of an enemy is. If the numbers are red, indicating that there is no armor, it is a good idea to pursue them. Purple numbers with legendary armor mean you may want to hold back.
3. Loot colors indicate levels
Armor, weapons, attachments, enemy loot boxes and almost everything in the game has a color that indicates its level - the higher the better. Higher armor offers more protection and so on. In enemy loot boxes the color indicates the highest level. The colors are as follows:
Level 1 - White
Level 2 - Blue
Level 3 - Purple
Level 4 - Gold
Gold level 4 armor and gear in Apex Legends is rare but it exists. It's basically the same as purple level 3 but comes with perks:
Gold helmet - faster tactical and ultimate cooldowns
Gold armor - refills shields after an execution
Gold backpack - faster health/consumable use
Gold Knockdown shield - self revive once
4. Ammo colors indicate type of weapon
There are basically four ammo types in Apex Legends: light rounds, heavy rounds, energy ammo and shotgun shells which are all indicated by a color:
Light rounds - brown
Heavy rounds -blue
Energy ammo - green
Shotgun shells - red
5. Some weapons have an alternate fire mode
Not every Apex Legends gun has an alternative fire mode, but it might be useful. Changing a full auto weapon to single shot for example will make you more accurate over range. If your gun has an alternate fire mode, it'll have a d-pad icon on the bottom right corner, just tap left to switch. The options include single fire, burst fire and full auto.

Legend Guide #4: Pathfinder

----------------------Basic Info-------------------------
1. Passive (Insider Knowledge): Scan a survey beacon to reveal the ring's next location.
There are survey beacons scattered around the map which you can hack to reveal where the next ring will be. It’s usually very easy to get to the next ring in this game, so while knowing where it will be is useful information and worth doing if you happen to come across a survey beacon, it’s definitely not worth going out of your way for.
2. Tactical (Grappling Hook): Grapple to get to out-of-reach places quickly.
Pathfinder’s grappling hook is precisely what makes him so good. It’s a fantastic mobility tool that allows Pathfinder to reach areas quickly, enabling him to loot faster, join fights faster, and escape danger.
3. Ultimate (Zipline Gun): Create a zipline for everyone to use.
Your ultimate ability allows you to create a zipline, allowing you and your team to quickly traverse the map. While there is a limit to how far you can place it, the range is absolutely massive and you’re unlikely to encounter a situation where there’s no good place to zipline.
-------------------Tips for playing Pathfinder---------------------
1. Use Grapple constantly
Grapple has a very low cooldown so I recommend using it constantly. Pathfinder has a low base movement speed, but his grapple allows him to move around the map faster than any other legend. It’s not just useful for going up - you can use the grapple on trees and rocks to launch yourself past them at insanely high speeds. You can even grapple enemies to stop them in their tracks and pull yourself toward them. Making the most of your grapple is the number 1 key to mastering Pathfinder.
2. Using your ultimate to win fights
You can use your ultimate to create advantageous positions for your team, such as securing the high ground and being able to cover multiple positions at once. The best way to do this is for your team to split up while you use your ultimate to link your positions. This allows your 2 teammates to engage an enemy in close quarters while you snipe at the enemy. This makes it so that if your teammates get into trouble they can use the zipline to retreat to your safe position or you can take the zipline to quickly join your team.
3. Using your ultimate to disengage
This one is a bit tricky because you’re not incredibly fast on the zipline and the enemy knows exactly where you're going. That’s why I recommend using cover and altitude changes to disengage. For example, run behind a rock and use your zipline downhill. This will make it tough for enemies to have a good angle to shoot you. That said, you’re still pretty quick and a moving target is much more difficult to hit than a stationary one, so sometimes you’ll have to take a risky zipline to avoid a completely losing fight.
4. Mastering the zipline
The ziplines have a lot of cool mechanics that everybody (not just Pathfinder) can use. Of course, if you’re playing Pathfinder you’ll want to be a master of these cool little tricks. For example, if you’re on the zipline and you end up realizing that taking it is a bad idea, you can jump, turn around, and take the zipline back the other way. Always remember that you can still shoot while you’re ziplining. You’re a much more difficult target to hit than a stationary enemy, so you can often win a gun fight while on the zipline.
