17 reasons to be thankful in games

Gather round, descendants of unwelcome occupiers. It is time to celebrate turkeys again. Now, I don’t have any comically large birds to slaughter, but I do recognise the emotional benefit of reflection, which is what this questionable holiday is all about. Being thankful. There are many small things we videosgamers take for granted, the stuff you don’t even think about. But tiny “quality of life”…

Apex Legends will soon let you tuck into more Apex Packs

Apex Legends has failed to adequately expand its repertoire of bird-based disasters. That's got nothing to do with the news, which is that they're about to start throwing more Apex Packs at everyone. I'm just annoyed and astonished that my calls to action have gone ignored, apart from the addition of a fabulous skydiving emote that I'll never own because there's still no way I'm…

Apex Legends finally gets a proper training mode alongside a limited duos mode

Halloween has come and gone from Apex Legends. Zombie hordes have vanished, replaced by the bitter chill of a November bloodbath. As the year cools down, it's time to warm up. This week's Apex patch 3.1 finally adds much-needed training mode Firing Range - a freeform arena for trying out all of Respawn's toys - and a duos mode to pit you and a friend…

Feature: The worthiest reticules of all time

The best FPS games on PC

The best shooters endure. While other genres warp beyond recognition, there is something solid about the first-person shooter that makes it as dependable as a nice big AK-47. Maybe it’s the gung-ho simplicity - look down a barrel and pull the trigger. It's as fun to fire a double-barrelled shotgun from an early 90s FPS as the slick shotties of today. For that reason, this…

EA games are returning to Steam, starting with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Electronic Arts are returning to Steam after a long hiatus. The first game to come over to the dark side is, appropriately enough, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on November 15. It'll be followed by the EA big guns of FIFA 20, Battlefield V, and more next year. And they're bringing their subscription service, EA Origin Access, which is a real surprise.

Feature: Murder Makes Me A Badass Girl

Apex Legends’ Voidwalker cinematic turns Wraith’s infinite worlds into an absurd binary

Apex: Stories from the Outlands - “Voidwalker” is the second of, so far, two short cinematic vignettes, meant to provide some narrative to the otherwise plot-barren battle-royale frenzy of fluid movement and chaotic gun-slinging that is Apex Legends. Principally, it is a story of two women. And while it falls into a well known, often criticised trope, it also presents an infinity of choices that…

Apex Legends starts terrifying, brilliant Fight Or Fright event

There's a chill in King's Canyon tonight. Apex Legends's Fight Or Fright Halloween spectacle began today, bringing ghosts and ghouls and all that spooky stuff into Respawn's battle royale. For the next three weeks, the familiar cast of the Apex games will be dressing up in their spookiest costumes, dishing out bullets and grenades to any rascal with the nerve to come trick or treating…

Apex Legends will let you practice without pressure on the Firing Range

You've just dropped into a warzone with 59 vicious murderers. But hold up, where's your trusty Wingman? What's this, a charge rifle? What does that do? Worse, both your teammates nicked your mains, and you're dropping as Caustic. Bloody hell, how does this gassy doctor play? Before you know it, you've been booted back to the main menu with a bang. Rubbish. All that fuss…

Apex Legends map guide (Season 3) – World’s Edge best locations and loot

How about that new Apex Legends map, eh? Season 3 has landed, and at last the Apex Games have been graced with the colourful sprawling landmass that is World's Edge. Larger and far more characterful than its predecessor, Kings Canyon, the new Season 3 map is filled with new named locations, new loot, and a great many players doing their best to learn the ins…

100 Apex Legends tips (Season 3) – Apex Legends guide with practical top tips for all skill levels

Apex Legends sure did sink its polished claws into us here in the office back in February; and none were as inescapably gripped as I, who spent the following months solidly diving down again and again upon Kings Canyon in search of guns, attachments, kills, wins, and above all, knowledge. I've spent hundreds of hours in-game collating the below Apex Legends tips and tricks on…

Feature: Ranking the very best guns in Apex Legends for Season 3!

Apex Legends guns & weapons (October): best guns, weapon stats, Apex Legends weapon tier list

The ever-expanding arsenal of Apex Legends guns and weapons is probably the most interesting and diverse it's ever been thanks to the release of Season 3. With each gun you pick up from the ground, you're also adopting a unique set of stats, spray patterns, available attachments, and behaviours. There's quite a lot to wrap your head around when it comes to figuring out the…

Treasures await in Apex Legends’s newly-opened vaults

If you've been happily sliding and shooting your way across Apex Legends's new map this past week, you've no doubt noticed some tantalising secrets tucked away in certain nooks and crannies. A captain's bounty of glistening golden chestplates and helmets, paralysing quantities of purple attachments and phoenix kits, all kept just out of reach by a door on a timer. Well, my plundering friends, today…

PSA: Pathfinder can fly in Apex Legends using Crypto’s drone

I'm trying to figure out how best to convey the satisfaction of the video below. It's a bit like that "Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things" Tumblr, a soothing sort of energy I find enhanced by video. A sense of seamlessness, a compelling facade that the pairing of unrelated objects can somehow be correct. In this case, it's Pathfinder from Apex Legends grappling onto Crypto's…

Apex Legends will raise the dead to fight in its Halloween event

It's time for Apex Legends to get spooky. Passing your first big holiday is something of a rite of passage for live games. What off-brand hallow's eve or Wintermas am I in for this time, we collectively wonder? For ApeLegs, it's the Fight Or Fright Collection Event arriving on October 15th. Much like the notorious Iron Crown back in August, Fight Or Fright is a…

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

Apex Legends Scout stats (Season 3): 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 (Season 3): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Wingman Pistol tips

The Wingman has always been one of the top-tier weapons in Apex Legends, despite receiving a nerf to its magazine size with the 1.1.1 update. Now that Season 3 has released, the Wingman's all-important Skullpiercer Hop Up has been removed; how much does this hurt the once top-tier pistol's position in the new meta? Our Apex Legends Wingman guide will solidify your understanding of this…

Feature: Alternator time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Alternator stats (Season 3): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Alternator SMG tips

The Alternator has been on quite a journey through the Seasons, beginning as one of the worst full-auto weapons in the game, then being buffed to ludicrous degrees thanks to the Disruptor Rounds Hop Up - and now back to pretty much where it began in Season 3. But in skilled hands, it can still hold its own in a firefight, just like any other…

Feature: RE-45 Auto time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends RE45 stats (Season 3): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, RE-45 Auto tips

With Season 2, Respawn elevated one of the lowest rungs of the Apex weapons ladder, the RE-45, to towering heights with the incredibly powerful Disruptor Rounds Hop Up. With Season 3, that Hop Up has vanished, and with it the RE-45's brief time in the sun. But that doesn't mean it can't shred an opponent under the right circumstances. In the below Apex Legends RE-45…

Feature: Hemlok time-to-kill and other stats

Apex Legends Hemlock stats (Season 3): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Hemlok Burst AR tips

Apex Legends' Hemlok/Hemlock Burst Assault Rifle is a high-damage Assault Rifle that, curiously, has always seemed to work better in single-shot mode than using its signature three-shot burst. But with Season 3's adjustments to both the gun's damage and its fire rate in the different modes, is that no longer the case? Our Apex Legends Hemlok guide will walk you through the various stats going…

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

Apex Legends Longbow stats (Season 3): DPS, TTK, spray pattern, Longbow DMR tips

The Longbow DMR was, in Season 2, the go-to sniper rifle of choice thanks to its buffed fire rate and very high damage - especially headshot damage. Now, despite Season 3 bringing us a larger and more horizontal map that should prove to be a sniper's playground, the Longbow's usefulness has dropped off slightly compared to other snipers such as the Scout and the new…
