Apex Legends stands apart from other battle royale games by introducing a bunch of enhancements to the formula made super popular by PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite. In Apex, Ammunition is color-coded with the guns it fits, to make identifying what you need easier at a distance. Attachments automatically equip to your guns if they fit, and if you swap out one gun for another, the attachments go with it. Areas on the map with the best loot are marked upon your arrival so you can plan your movements more carefully. But while it’s full of useful quality-of-life improvements to what we’ve seen in battle royale games up to now, there’s a lot that Apex Legends doesn’t tell you about how things work and some of your capabilities.
