    Apex, Weekly Content and why you Should be Glad they don’t do it

    The past month has been a violent pile of, quite honestly, ridiculous claims. “Apex is dying!” “People have moved on!” “They didn’t put content out fast enough.” Just in case you aren’t picking up on the tone here, none of it is true. Respawn Entertainment, the minds behind the battle royale that took the gaming community by storm that brought in 25 million unique players in just under 2 weeks. Now that’s impressive. But as the weeks turned into a month and new content was demanded by the community, many turned their backs on the game. They had gotten used to the weekly content released by games like Fortnite and refused to…

    The Big Boys get their Buff

                    It’s long been known that when you play Gibraltar and Caustic that you put yourself at a disadvantage due to their large character rigs. While the last update fixed the issue enough for Pathfinder, these two were just too damn bulky for a hitbox tweak. Playing these two meant you were going to get shot more and go down more, flat out. So Respawn gave them both a new passive in addition to their current ones. The damage they take now is reduced by 10%, for everything. Body shots, headshots, melee, explosives, the works. This gives them an effective 110 HP, and…

    Breathe ’em and Weep – Gas Tactics for Caustic

    Today, you learn how to play our one true lord. Beautiful. Now join me as a Caustic main, and reign terror and confusion on your enemies. Caustic is a Large-Rig character, meaning, like Gibraltar and Pathfinder, he’s one of the easier legends to land shots on. While this is a disadvantage, it shouldn’t come into play very often if you play him right. Caustic’s kit consists of gas traps and a gas grenade, and an immunity to his own traps. He can have 6 (SIX!) Traps down at a time, with a maximum of 3 ‘charges’ that refill when he throws them out. His ultimate is the grenade, a throwable…

    Did I Accidentally Launch Borderlands 2? – Season 1 of Apex Legends has Dropped!

    Is this now “old news?” Yes. Is this post abysmally late? Absolutely. But that won’t stop me! Apex Legends launched Season 1 and with it a Battle Pass, bought for 950 Apex Coins (Or roughly $9.50). It comes with a fair amount of features, all cosmetic. Skins for Legends and weapons, as well as new banners for season specific stats like wins and kills. Best of all though, if you level up the pass enough you gain 1000 Apex Coins, refunding your purchase! But the more important release was by far the new Legend, Octane; And boy can this sucker move. With abilities to increase his own and his teams…

    One More Reason to Pick up those Energy Rounds – The Havoc Rifle is Here!

    Bringing the energy weapon count up to an unimaginable 3, Apex introduced the Havoc Rifle last week. This sucker is lighter and more accurate than the Devotion, and has a shorter but still present spin-up time before firing. Taking all the standard rifle attachments, plus the “Turbocharger” Hop-Up attachment, it’s a force to be reckoned with at close to medium range. Using this gun myself left me a tad disappointed, as it had a similar fire rate to the Devotion but a much smaller magazine. I felt like I could never down a target without using 2-3 reloads worth of ammo, and the spin-up time always threw me off, just…

    So you Wanna be Champion

    Welcome to Apex: Legends.   The new kid on the block and most recent in the long, long line of battle royale games to come out in the past few years. Developed by Respawn, the same people who made the Titanfall franchise, Apex: Legends follows the basic battle royale formula. Drop in from the sky, grab loot, kill your opponents, stay in the circle, and be the last one standing. What sets it apart is its quick gunplay, Legend system, and fantastic ping system. In Apex you always play in a squad of three. No solos, no duos, unless you get some cheeky people that disconnect before the game starts. One person controls the jump…
