Not sure how good Fuse will be (probably very) but my advice will remain "unlock Horizon first" because she is extremely good and extremely fun.
Also Octane.

Got a win as Fuse. His active and ult are both pretty good but holy poo poo his passive is insane. I landed like, 5 arc stars on people. Time to run "an entire inventory of arc stars with no guns at all".

I think what might be cool for Crypto is if the drone is always flying around above you, and his gameplay revolves around that. So you can't really sneak (maybe you could hide and show it with a button as his passive or whatever), but that way you dont get stuck into flying the drone which is super boring in a game all about fast movement and rotations

Also change her audio so she isn't a walking tutorial. That's by far the worst thing about her.

Whenever Bangalore isn't on screen explaining what everything in the game is, the other legends should be saying things like "Does the r-99 have a slow rate of fire?"

Is Apex super popular in Japan? I'm seeing a lot of Japanese fan content, which is surprising because I thought shooters weren't very popular there.

Second biggest player base after the US somehow.

The devs point blank refuse to buff Loba's active, to the point that the cooldown for her ult is comedically short, because they know it's really powerful.
Which sucks, give me constant telobaports you cowards.

Why do they insist on locking maps out? Honestly just have all three on rotation!!
They take one out to update it but it's just so dumb. Sorry we can't have you running round on World's End, you'll interrupt the landscaping services.

These flare modes are the worst thing I think maybe ever added to this game. Respawn have had an impressive run of not really missing the mark on any updates but this is the first one where I'm actively thinking I'd rather play ranked to avoid it

I finally played Titanfall 2 and it makes Apex feel slow and meandering in comparison. It's a real shame EA buried this game by releasing it between BF1 and CoD. I avoided it because I figured the only people left were hardcore players who have been playing it since release and while that's partially true but there are still plenty of people who aren't super sweaty. Anyone who likes Apex that hasn't tried TF2 should give it a try. The movement system in TF2 is truly freeing and feels amazing.

Good news gamer: TF3 is in the works, and you can bet they're going to leverage as much of the attention Apex got as possible in its promotion, so the best FPS series of the generation will finally get the recognition it always deserved

Picked up Titanfall 2 when it was on sale this past weekend (maybe it still is) and holy hell thanks to everyone who recommended it. I have 0 urge to play the multiplayer but the campaign mode is probably the best single player shooter I've played in a decade!

The multiplayer is exceptional and I strongly recommend checking it out

Can't they just have every map available and chosen randomly for each match? Like every other game? I don't get why they deliberately limit the map variety, especially when there's only 3 to begin with.

Literally this forever, "retiring" one map is dumb just rotate through all of them

Did they mess with gun drop rates? I've played like 4 rounds now and have seen zero R301s or Flatlines. I've ended up using Volt + Prowler (it still owns) every game so far

Maggie has clicked with me like few other characters have, she is so much fun. I barely ever sniffed 3k damage let alone getting more than 10 kills but I had my best game ever as her https://gamerdvr.com/gamer/baconfeet/video/152306343

Same. Moving at full speed with a shotgun feels so great. Now they just need a full speed with smg characterÖ

Storm point really is dogshit. It has so much downtime, even in normals after the first scrap it's time to trek across a map with 4 other teams left and miles between them. Who would've thought making a huge open rear end map with massive sightlines would make third-partying easier and thus incentivize non-interaction even more??

I've always had the boring opinion that they shouldn't have made specific characters and had everyone play pilots and make money off cosmetics to customize yourself because it's going to be impossible to balance. I understand going the character route because it likely sells better and folks like getting into the lore but none of that interests me.

Counterpoint different hero skill sets are cool

the only bad thing about apex getting bigger esports events is that the pros are probably the worst people in esports (maybe aside from the CoD child gambling crowd)

For various reasons I had to move my setup from a desk to a couch setup - how hard is it to move from KB+M to Controller in this game? I still wanna play but I have been playing since launch and am worried my old brain will struggle to adjust. Are all the fancy movement techs available on controller?
