Apex Legends Season 2 Beginners Tips
Before I shoot all the tips I want to give a short overview about Apex Legends game plot, it is for beginners and if you had played enough you can skip this part and move forward to the next para. Similar to other battle royale game like PUBG and Fortnite, Apex Legends features the same game mechanism of Last-Man-Standing. It is an online multiplayer shooter game, where 60 players land into an island and the last one left alive wins the match. They are divided into three teams of twenty players each, to find who is left check the indicator on the top right of the screen. There are loot’s that helps players to get weapons, consumables and other items to survive. You can either enter alone or in a pair of two if you want to play as a team. You can gather your friends and play a team of three or four. Below is the list of new things in Apex Legends Season 2.

The training mode will teach you using Weapons, Attachments, How to aim properly, Bullet Drop, and Sniper Training. You will also learn Bunny Hop a useful movement and using Spray pattern.
- 60 Players Land on the island in a team of three.
- Every match has 8 rounds, during which the ring shrinks pushing players into a tight space. It is not necessary every match last 8 rounds, it depends on the players. Ample of time the matches end on or before 4th Round.
- Always try to get a Headshot, it causes the max damage to compare to shooting the body part. The game also has leg-shot that cause similar damage.
- The player outside the ring will face Health Damage every tick or in an interval of 1.5 seconds. Shields don’t work here.
- You will have a Health of 100, you can increase it with +25 by Shields and get a max of +100 more. So overall you have a 200 Health.
- Gears are important in Apex Legends, they offer you Shields, Helmets, Knockdown Shields and Backpacks. They appear in rarities like Blue, Purple, Gold, etc. Golds are the best one, like Gold shield that allows you to self-revive. Each gear has its unique stats, and to learn more refer to this guide – Apex Legends Gear Guides.

- Every new round has a waiting period the first round has 3 minutes and 2 minutes closing period. Health damage outside the ring also increases with every round and ring diameter keeps on reducing. If you are able to survive till last round approx time spent in Apex Legends is around 30 minutes.
- Use the Ping System to communicate with the team, you can ping locations, objects, and enemies.
- Learn character stats, every character has three unique abilities, Passive, Tactical and Ultimate. Passive remains always active, Tactical has a short cooldown period and Ultimate is the most powerful that requires charging over time.
- It is best to start with a team, a squad will turn out your compass to give you information on enemies, last death position, loots and more.
- Loot is random, there are different locations offering you separate tiers of loot. You can see them on the top left of the screen whenever you enter a new area. You have to explore a lot.
- Kings Canyon the map in Apex Legend is covered in Ziplines, it will help you to cover large distances in a short time. To fast travel, you can also use hot air balloons you have to reach it and deploy rocket boots to cover distances.
- Fast movement is an important aspect of Apex Legends, it is not a game where you can scout and wait for enemies to come in. Try to ace mobility like sprinting, jumping and crouching. You can also slide and climb walls, so it is advisable to keep moving so that you can avoid getting yourself surrounded by a crowd. Holster your weapon while jumping or running to get more speed.

One of the most important tips that everyone must know is about reviving after losing all your health. Because this will be happening a lot in Apex Legends. If you are on zero health but you have alive teammates around, anyone standing you will be knocked. This means you can crawl around but you cannot attack anyone. You can crawl, ping and open or close doors. So you have to find a teammate to revive yourself before you bleed out completely. Anyone teammate who is playing as Lifeline can revive by interacting with the down teammate, just press E to interact. You can also respawn a member on one of the Respawn Beacon on maps. To know more about reviving your teammates, read our tips and tricks on How to Revive fast in Apex Legends.
