Don’t gamble with drops, land somewhere that guarantees a enough loot to get going. Land on the outskirts of a town or on an unmarked location then worry about fighting others.

Use the PING SYSTEM!

If there’s a lot of death boxes in a room, and you didn’t make them. You’re probably next.

Communicate with your squad and test what weapons you are efficient with and PRACTICE.

Always stick together. 90% of failed runs is due to someone trying to be mister hot shot and going into lone wolf mode 🤜🤛

shoot first , loot later

Go in with a squad!

When you see two squads fighting, don’t intervene yet – wait for the fight to end, and when they loot the dead bodies then you can attack!

– do not drop on the exact same spot with your mates, spread out a bit.
– don't rush into the enemies when you're not absolutely sure you can handle the situation.
– don't get your team mates in danger just because you're being egoistic.
– share ammo
– have fun 😁

Not a lot of players know this, but there is a supply ship you can land on in the air! It’s pretty much always empty and full of great loot.

Mirage tip: send your decoy into enemy smoke and if they shoot it they will be pinged giving you an advantage.

Go to training mode and get familiar with some guns 💪🏽

Tips for beginners: do not and I repeat do not drop right away, look down and read where everyone is landing, see how many stayed on the ship and drop last far away from everyone get your looting going and soon as you have a half decent set up, just then go and get them Tiger! 🏆

Try and combo your abilities with your team. For example Bangalore's Smoke Launcher goes great with Bloodhounds Ultimate.
The enemy team wont see you, but the bloodhound will see them.

Holster weapon to not only run faster but slide faster, climb higher, fly further (from balloons).

Outnumbered and out gunned? Run.. Live to fight another day and revive your team mates when the enemies have passed
— TimmyTweetsAlot (@Timmytweetsalot) February 20, 2019
Use the climbing mechanic to your advantage, if you're in a small town or near small housing, climb! Use the fast movements in apex to fight, most people expect you to just run around corners. Just limb up buildings, jump off of them, do everything you can to confuse the enemy

Wear stereo headphones, sound is very well mapped in this game and can help you locate enemies sneaking up on you.

Stick with my team, and throw down my barrier as soon as I hear bullets flying by me.

DON'T IMMEDIATELY DROP! use freelook beforehand to watch where everyone else is going, and wait till after the first 30 players drop so you can get an idea of how hot an area will be so you can better prepare your LZ, and pick an area that best suits your squad's play style!
