This weekend I’ll be focusing on APEX Legends mobile and CODM. After playing PUBG for a few weeks, I’ve decided to put that game to the side. It’s ok, but just a little too clunky. Weapon control, aiming, and movement mechanics are really bad, compared to APEX and CODM.
I’m moving through the ranked system on APEX. The ranks start at Iron V and progress to Iron I, then there’s Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master, and Predator. I’m currently at Diamond V and working my way to Diamond IV.
There are three game modes in APEX. Team Deathmatch, which is much like CODM, but only has a few maps. Then there is Battle Royal, which is non-ranked. In this mode, you’ll run up against folks spanning a larger span of ranks than in ranked.
In this game, you won’t be working on weapon camouflages, you’ll be working on Legends. Each legend has powers, and these powers are earned playing matches. You can play team deathmatch or battle royal. It doesn’t matter. APEX also has a battle pass, which is worth it if you like collecting trinkets and weapon skins. There are also leveling-up awards, which could be legend skins, weapon skins, and so on.
If you’re coming to APEX from CODM you’ll discover that APEX has a longer time to kill (TTK), which means you’ll have to improve your aiming a bunch, particularly when you have an enemy that is sliding and jumping everywhere. Each character has both health and armor that have to be taken out to kill them. Armor in this game can be increased by using the various devices and goodies sprinkled around the battlefield. This all requires constant monitoring of your health, armor, and ammunition.
I’m still relatively new to the game, so be patient. I’ll continue to add more as I learn more. Here are some places you’ll probably want to visit to check out the game, learn more, and participate in a forum where other players will help you out. There are some streamers on Facebook that play APEX. One I follow is Queen Eliminator. On Twitch, I follow NICKMERCS. Nick is well known in creator circles, and this is one of the games he focuses on now. You can also find a number of APEX Legends games on YouTube. I’ve stuck with the two I mentioned above, but if neither of these streamers interests you, I’m confident you’ll find others on YouTube and Twitch.
Well, that’s it for today. I’m off to work on Diamond IV in APEX and finishing up some challenges in CODM, including achieving diamond on the M16 Assault rifle.
Happy gaming, peeps!
