Apex Legends bounces into its Wild Frontier season today

Apex Legends's first major update since launch is live now. New robo-legged (no apelegs here) legend Octane is all about going fast, although he's a bit tougher than his skinny Borderlands-esque frame would suggest. He constantly regenerates health, and can invest it in temporary speed boosts. His ultimate ability is a big ol' jump pad - a portable trampoline that can be used by your…

Anthem guide – beginner’s tips, replay missions

Anthem sees players take on the role of Freelancers, diving into a world of mystery and monsters. We've been collating guides since the game's launch period, with the many updates from BioWare tweaking things behind the scenes, though the success of these patches is up for debate. Still, there's stuff to look for should you so wish and our guides will help you with this.

Anthem Update – 15th March patch, latest patch notes

Anthem's latest patch seems to have been dropped earlier than expected and makes some sweeping changes to the game, most notably addressing some more loot spawning issues, a few changes to respawn timers, and a few item balance changes to Masterwork/Legendary gear. To that end, we figured it would be good to have a summary of all the more relevant updates for Anthem, so in…

Apex Legends launches into its first season tomorrow with mad lad Octane

Apex Legends kicks off its first cosmetic-driven season tomorrow - Wild Frontier. Players of Respawn's overnight battle royale hit can plonk down 950 Apex Coins (1000 is roughly $10) on the game's first Battle Pass, offering a linear chain of 100 cosmetic rewards to earn through play over the coming months. Those who can't wait for fashion can plonk down 2800 coins to skip straight…

Butt-slide Royale: Apex Legends and creative movement in shooters

I’m not sure anyone at Respawn has properly busted their ass on the curb. It hurts. The last time I cracked my rear off the concrete in a moment of skating hubris, I was limping for days. Fortunately for the fifty million folks flying around in Apex Legends, a billowing cushion of air has turned what should be an embarrassing accident into the most compelling…

Anthem buffs some loot drop rates, plans to improve more

BioWare have now officially and intentionally improved loot drop rates in certain Anthem activities, following weeks of griping from players that the looter-shooter is too stingy with the goodies. BioWare had previously unintentionally buffed loot rates twice, at which points players seemed a lot happier grinding for gear, then both times BioWare stepped in to say "Oh whoops that was a bug, sorry, we've fixed…

Battlefield V starts Firestorm battle royale on March 25

What happens if you fall into a burning ring of fire? It's a given that you'll fall down, down, down while the flames climb higher and that doubtless burns, burns, burns. What many don't expect is that you'll then lark about on a big red tractor with your pals and blast other firefools to pieces with some serious artillery. That's how it'll go in Firestorm,…

Playstyle Royale: The Floor Is Lava

This is Playstyle Royale, where I pretend eight months going by isn't too long for sticking with the same intro formula to look weird, but also where I head into a battle royale game and try to win my chicken dinner while adhering to arbitrary rules. This week I'm playing Apex Legends, and the floor is lava. I'm going to win a game without touching…

‘They’re just rumours, innit’ say Apex Legends developers on datamining

Rumours have been churning around data-mined discoveries in Apex Legends, only to be quashed last night by developers Respawn Entertainment. Or not quashed, as such. But they have said, to paraphrase, 'look these are rumours ok, you'll get your battle pass soon plz calm down'. Respawn's statement also follows Origin prematurely showing some users adverts for Season One, featuring a new mobility-focused hero called Octane…

Anthem Masterwork – all the legendary weapons, components, and gear, best weapons ranked

Anthem's best stuff comes in the form of both Masterwork and Legendary ranks. Each one gives a better output of damage and better inscriptions compared to the Epic gear, but they also come with an added bonus effect. These bonus effects can be quite hard to track, especially in-game, so we've compiled all of the Masterwork effects for the weapons, gear, and components in the…

Anthem Javelins – Ranger builds, Colossus builds, Interceptor builds, and Storm builds

Anthem's Javelins are the equivalent of other game's classes. They're wildly different from each other, with some focused on melee attacks or single target abilities, and others that excel with crowd control. This guide goes over the four Javelins, with some general tips for each and all the abilities. It also highlights how to unlock them and how to make their quality as shiny as…

Ban galore: Apex Legends has banned over 355k PC accounts for cheating

Respawn Entertainment have vowed to improve the cheat-busting tech in Apex Legends, though it seems to be doing pretty well already considering they say they've banned over 355,000 accounts since launch five weeks ago. It's good to see Titanfall's free-to-play battle royale spin-off slam so many bans, as the low cost of entry on F2P games is like poo to a fly. In this powerful…

Anthem loot – Getting Anthem’s best loot, endgame loot farming

Obtaining Anthem's best stuff is a massive challenge that only the bravest Javelins should undertake. You won't be able to get the best items until you reach the endgame, and even then you need to ensure that you are sufficiently prepared to take on some of the toughest challenges, repeatedly, just to get a whiff of the loot. This guide will go over what loot…

Leaked Battlefield V Firestorm trailer looks hot

Fire! Doobey dooo! I want you to burn, and it looks like my wish will soon be granted. A leaked trailer for Battlefield V's upcoming battle royale mode (foolishly called Firestorm rather than Battlefield Royale) hit the net last night. There are tanks. There are guns of different tiers. There is fire. There are no surprises, in other words, but I'm still keen to warm…

Apex Legends balance patch demotes Wingman to Wingboy

War never changes, but the guns do sometimes get rebalanced. Apex Legends developers Respawn have finished the first balance pass on their free-to-play battle royale shooter, tweaking the Wingman revolver and the Peacekeeper shotgun to make them a tad less deadly while increasing the availability of energy weapons. Those and a few bug fixes are the only changes so far, but the devs have also…

Anthem Map – Freeplay World events and hidden places explained

You're forced into Freeplay in Anthem a number of times, but just because you have to, doesn't mean it's pointless. There's plenty to do here, such as farm for materials, embers, and kills on enemies of certain ranks. This guide includes a map of the world of Anthem, while also going over World Events in Freeplay mode, as well as point out the significance in…
