Apex Legends - A Titanfall Battle Royale

Where are people playing at, PC or console?

What is this console thing you speak of?

I think most of people are playing it on PC (I'm on PC but still hooked on BFV)

I'm on PC. There's no way I'd be able to play this with a controller.

Okay, that's probably my struggle with finding fellows to play. I'll probably rope in a few PS4 friends to see if they'd give it a try with me.

There are several people playing on Xbox.

Downloaded last night, but probably won't be able to dive in until later today.

@Dominic Knight: I’ll be playing on PS4. I doubt my aging laptop can handle Apex and I been doing good on my streak of not installing Origin.

My PSN name in my sig.

This game inspired me to start replaying TF2. Man... that game feels utterly amazing . If Apex feels half as good then I may really end up liking it.

I just realized we're already friends.

Im on PS4, controller feels just fine to me for this. As did Titanfall 2 I even managed to play fairly well on pc with a controller for that one.

Anyone looking for a PS4 friend send me an invite just let me know you are from gwj

Can you do bumper jumper button config?

Yes.

I just played a couple of matches. In the first match I was teamed up with someone who carried me to win the whole thing. I think I shot someone. In my second match my team was wiped within two minutes and I never found a weapon. My third team was comprised of all newbies, so we wandered aimlessly, getting a few kills.
We kept heading towards the big ring on the map. We were wiped by a team with long rifles while we were in the open.

I still have no idea what's going on, but it is kind of fun. I just wish we could equip weapons before the drop. Scrounging for gear kind of sucks.

I am really loving this (I feel like I am cheating on PUBG and chocoTaco). Still struggling to understand how to play each class, missing frequently, dying often...and, yet, leaving each session with a big smile on my face.

Playing on PS4 as well. Enjoying it though it doesn't feel as smooth as the COD: Black-out. However, I like the emphasis they've added to teamplay. Blackout was super hit-or-miss when I tried to squad with randos.

This is not obvious so I'm posting this here:

Yesssssss!

Wow, thanks Tempest - that explains a couple of things I thought were bugs!

Does anyone know or figured out the meta for jumping in Apex? I've seen teams seem to get some kind of boost near the end when they would be right next to us. Losing a lot of fights because they're on the ground before we are.

Level 22 gives you enough legend currency to buy one without paying money.

be forwarned. i updated my nvidia driver today and had a minimum of 5 crashes tonight in Apex

I believe that firing your rockets speeds you up but reduces your ability to turn. If you go slower you can coast longer and have more control over where you land.

I'm not that familiar enough with the map yet, but I think prefer to wait longer, and try to land where other teams aren't. It usually means scrounging more for supplies, but I found it more fun (and tense) to try to trek across the map.

However, last night my jumpmaster immediately jumped and landed among two other squads and I was able to down two people by punching them!

I'm rocking this on the PS4. Other PS4 apex guys okay if I add you?

Wingman I agree with there, but the G7 never feels like its hitting that hard for me.

You can see the numbers. It's correct.

Add me up! Plan to hop on this weekend... which means I am already half a lifetime behind the curve already!

This game doesn't have the CAR in it! That's a travesty!
