Dota 2’s paid “avoid player” option is part of a pattern of developers sidelining anti-abuse features

Dota 2's International 2019 Battle Pass has plenty of issues. As Matt wrote earlier this month, alongside a waterfall of cosmetics and a special mode, the pass will unlock an in-game assistant that seems to give owners an advantage over those who haven’t forked over at least £7.50/$10. But (as reported by The Verge) the pass is paywalling another key feature – the ability to…

Apex Legends fixes faulty servers, planning to punish piggybackers

Y'know that weird problem where Apex Legends matches would sometimes start out in slow-motion? That should now be fixed, or at least a lot better, as developers Respawn Entertainment say they found some servers had faulty hardware that wasn't detected by normal checks and have removed them. Their state of the game update chat on Friday night also mentioned other performance fixes in the pipeline…

Apex Legends has banned 770,000 cheaters

As cheapskate circus owner Larson E. Whipsnade famously said, you can't cheat an honest man*. You also can't cheat Respawn Entertainment, because they will find out and ban you from Apex Legends. Or so they say: that's the main takeaway from their wee developer update on cheaters and spammers, who Respawn have been cracking down on like a lion loose in a hot-air balloon. I…

Apex Legends Wattson details – new character leak, release date, Wattson abilities & analysis

Who is Wattson? The release of Apex Legends brough us eight varied and colourful characters to learn and master, and the release of Season 1 brought a ninth in the form of Octane, the High-Speed Daredevil. But that's not the only new character that's coming, with numerous rumours and leaks coalescing into a blurry-but-ever-sharpening image of Wattson - the tenth Legend of King's Canyon. Our…

Respawn prioritising Apex Legends updates over more Titanfall

Respawn Entertainment insist they're not shifting staff from Apex Legends to work on other games, rather the contrary: focusing on Apex is pushing back the next Titanfall. They've opened up about their update plans, saying current priorities are hit detection, cheats, server slowness, and audio performance. They are planning a new weapon and changes to the murderisland for future content updates but don't expect those…

Apex Legends guns/weapons (1.1.1): best guns, weapon stats, Apex Legends weapons tier list

Respawn have done an admirable job balancing all of the Apex Legends weapons to present an increasing curve of rarity and power. With 20 guns currently on offer, each with their own stats, quirks, and spray patterns, there's a lot to learn - even more now that the 1.1.1 update has changed so much. But fear not, for our Apex Legends guns/weapons guide will walk…

Apex Legends Gibraltar guide (1.1.1): abilities, hitbox, Gibraltar tips and tricks

Gibraltar once was the subject of ridicule among the Apex Legends characters roster, thanks to his enormous hitbox, and despite his excellent and versatile array of abilities. But with the release of v1.1.1, Gibraltar has received a substantial buff, and we're now likely to see a lot more of him in King's Canyon. Our Apex Legends Gibraltar guide will walk you through each of Gibraltar's…

Apex Legends Caustic guide (1.1.1) – abilities, hitbox, Caustic tips and tricks

Caustic, despite his premium status as one of just three characters in Apex Legends who must be unlocked through Legend Tokens or Apex Coins, was always one of the most underperforming Legends in the game thanks to his bulky hitbox. But now with the release of the 1.1.1 update, Caustic is much tankier and deadlier than he ever used to be, and there's no better…

Feature: Is the Selectfire Receiver viable on the Havoc now?

Apex Legends Havoc stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Havoc tips and tricks

Since the Havoc was released back in February (the first gun to be added to Apex Legends since the game's release), feelings have been very mixed about this unique Energy-based gun. A high recoil and reliance on the right attachments made this gun hard to pick over the more reliable R-301 Carbine or a trusty Spitfire. But now the developers have addressed this with a…

Feature: M600 Spitfire time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Spitfire stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, M600 Spitfire tips

One of just two Light Machine Guns (LMGs) currently in Apex Legends, the M600 Spitfire is a powerhouse of a gun, dealing high damage at a high fire rate with a high ammo capacity, even after its 1.1.1 nerfs. What's not to love? Our Apex Legends Spitfire guide will walk you through the various stats of this powerful LMG, from DPS and attachments to the…

Feature: Triple Take time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Triple Take stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Triple Take Sniper tips

The Triple Take plays rather a strange role within the Apex Legends weapons arsenal. A cross between a shotgun and a sniper, this long-range rifle uses Energy Ammo to produce a triangular burst of three shots with every pull of the trigge. There's a lot to know about the Triple Take, so we've put together the below Apex Legends Triple Take guide, which will walk…

Feature: Longbow DMR time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Longbow stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Longbow DMR tips

With the recent 1.1.1 buff to sniper rifles across the board, the Longbow DMR makes an even stronger case than it once did for being the best long-range weapon in Apex Legends, perhaps even including the Supply Drop-exclusive Kraber. With excellent damage and accuracy over long ranges and a newly increased rate of fire, there's a lot to like about this particular sniper rifle. Our…

Feature: G7 Scout time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Scout stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Scout Sniper tips

A firm favourite in the hands of many an Apex Legends player, the G7 Scout is a sniper rifle for players who don't want to use a sniper rifle. Solid damage combined with a fast rate of fire enables you to use this weapon to great effect at pretty much any range you like - I've out-shotgunned enemies with this rifle, so believe me when…

Feature: Wingman time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Wingman stats (1.1.1): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Wingman Pistol tips

The Wingman has always been one of the top-tier weapons in Apex Legends, despite receiving a buff alongside the Peacekeeper back in March. It's accurate, easy to use, and packs a real punch. Now, the 1.1.1 update has nerfed the Wingman's mag size across the board, making it that much more important to hit your shots. Our Apex Legends Wingman guide will solidify your understanding…

Since the release of Season 1, we've seen hitbox changes, a new character in the form of the High-Speed Daredevil Octane, and now with the 1.1.1 Patch Notes some serious tweaks to the two bulkiest characters in the game's roster, Gibraltar and Caustic. So we thought it high time to revisit our Apex Legends characters guide and repopulate it with all our best tips, strategies,…

100 Apex Legends tips (1.1.1): Apex Legends guide, practical top tips for all skill levels

Apex Legends, in case you somehow haven't heard, is the recent slide-n-shoot battle royale hit from Titanfall devs Respawn - and it's a pretty damn good game. And now that Season 1 has released, it looks set to be even damn good-er than before. Certainly enough for me to spend hundreds of hours in-game collating the below top Apex legends tips and tricks on how…

Apex Legends Pathfinder guide (1.1.1): Pathfinder tips and tricks, abilities, hitbox

That Pathfinder has a reputation for being one of the most mobile Apex Legends characters may flummox you - but prefer to be unflummoxed, because it's all completely true. Pathfinder's abilities, particularly his Grappling Hook, are extremely mobility- and momentum-focused, and greatly reward players who look for unexpected angles and wide flanks during fights. As possibly the character with the highest skill ceiling in the…

Bloodhound, the Odin-worshipping raven-touting tracker of Apex Legends characters, is a real asset to any team if played correctly. Their abilities offer a completely different style of play to the other Legends, revolving around positional awareness and hunting down enemies. Our Apex Legends Bloodhound guide will walk you through this colourful (or colourless...) array of abilities, alongside numerous practical and little-known tips and tricks to…
