    After the initial disappointment of ‘just another BR game’ and not a proper TF release, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot from Apex Legends, but it’s actually really quite well done.

    Still not a huge fan of the BR format, but it seems to be a reasonable game mode for when you want to squeeze a quick game in.

    Wasn't expecting you to like the high TTK.

    No idea on weapons. Classes are pretty balanced and some complement each other better then others. Do some youtube research.

    I don't. I really don't. I point blanked a guy with the Shotgun for like 39 DMG. Then I got the big LMG with a few attachments and landed like 6 shots on a dude, no kill. Definitely my least favourite part of it.

    It's a game where you need to basically be joined at the hip with ya team mates. It's very hard to kill more then 1 dude if they have good shields.

    I played final circle with a random like Pubg and we both got wrecked due to his legendary armor and having different rooms each. He had time to repair his shield before I got to him.

    I personally think shields are a bit strong and the gunplay suffers as a result of it. TTK with Epic/Legendary shields is off the charts and requires multiple magazines in most cases.

    Yup it basically means most people just hide and hunt for high level shields and then win final circle due to shields.

    Hopefully gets some tweaks.

    Go to gun japes?

    I got some auto sniper, pretty good early game.

    And do people have more than 100hp? If I hit a guy with no armour and it says 55dmg, will hitting someone with good armour say 55dmg? Or is it a percentage and say less?

    Getting a bit better playing in a duo with a mate and rando thirds.

    We're consistently getting to top 5-6 squads with decent loot and winning a few fights on the way. Mechanical skills just aren't good enough for the late game though. Miss a lot of shots you need to hit to survive.

    Never been super skillful at FPS games though so I reckon I've hit my peak ha :(

    Entirely dependent on modifications. Personally like the Prowler with select fire and the Longbow but any of the lights are pretty decent close and mid with stuff like the Scout.

    I honestly can't fucking tell how the numbers work, they've got 100hp but the damage you do on top of that is indicative of their armour/shields, eg. hitting for red is hp, hitting for white is base armour etc. Not 100% sure on that because the numbers are generally a monstrous clusterfuck.

    Anything but the Flatline and Hemlok really.

    It's 100hp with 25hp increments of shield. Unlike Pubg shots to shield (armor) only hurt shield and not you.

    Color of text damage let's u know their shield level.

    I think it's red when it's actual HP and yellow for headshot.

    White/blue/purple/orange for shields.

    I just killed a squad of 3 while solo with the Wingman. I was quite happy with that.

    Got a 4 kill 4th. Had zero sound. Just jumped on expecting kid to come out of bed and bug me. Headphones off, DAC not even on.

    Ran the Longbow sniper and one of the LMG, few upgrades.

    Need to figure out how equipping works. Wanted Holo on LMG and 6x on sniper, clicking scopes then getting shot at, go to check and managed to put a 3x on both.

    Is there a way to see it like PUBG? TAB to see what's available and click and drag it across to where you want? Or can you just pick up scopes and decide later?

    Oh and Sprint. Just forever sprints unless you let go of W. So dumb. Should just be press sprint key to sprint, release to stop.

    Yes press tab u can drag scopes between compatible guns and reorder guns. There is two ways to pick up. One is to pickup and one is to equip. Can't remember what buttons they are but it shows you. It's similar to blackout but much better.

    I think ammo should stack more it takes up too much space.

    My sprint works fine I think, stops when I left go of shift.
