Apex Legends has many characters to choose from, everyone having various abilities that set them apart. However, even though all the legends are different, their speed, strength, and firepower are the same for everyone. Players can look up legends’ abilities and choose one according to their gameplay habits.

2) Weapon mods

Weapon mods play a huge role in the Outlands as well. Each weapon mod adds additional features to compatible weapons to give anyone a competitive edge. For instance, the Skull Pearcer attachment for Wingman and Longbow increases the headshot damage for these weapons. Players need to be careful when choosing a weapon to fit the weapon to their style.

3) Stick with the squad

Teamwork is very much needed when trying to survive in the Outlands. It is better to stick together with the team when landing in the arenas. Staying together increases the survivability of the team because of the total firepower.

4) Using pings to inform the team
