Apex Legends new solo mode
« on: 12:53 AM - 08/14/19 »
Hi all,

Barely been gaming of late, a mixture of boredom and real life getting in the way but i noticed they have added solos so my interest has increased.

I jumped on last night for a few and really enjoyed it but I'm interested to know your thoughts on it, do you guy's like it?

In particular I'd like to know what's considered a high amount of kills in a win as I'd like to post some gameplay but genuinely don't know what's considered high.

I had a look online quickly but no joy, perhaps it's too new.

What do you guys think, good game mode? What's the highest amount of kills you've managed?

Cheers

Honestly, I prefer trios. Unless I'm hot dropping, I've found that it's hard to find enemies to kill. And when I do, they're all using long range weapons which makes it a bit too campy.

I like the data that you get when you get killed though. Would be nice to see that in the reg game.

I got four kills several times. Finished in the top five a few times. Pretty normal for an average XIMmer, I'm guessing?

I've only played a handful of games but i haven't come across players using long range yet.

I find sound is your biggest friend in this game mode, listening to footsteps is so key to catch those sneaky campers.

The only real negative for me so far is the first zone is up from the start and often in the far corners of the map so although u may have 60 people drop in its hard to get alot of kills as many die off spawn contesting spots then are quickly having to run to the zone and dieing so you end up with between 10 and 20 players left by first zone which when your going for high kill games makes it tricky. Seems a lot of luck may be involved in finding players and the zone.

Highest kills I've managed so far is 12  and 2000 damage with a win but only played for a couple of hours, is that any good? Honestly don't know.

Gna jump on again tonight if i can and see if i can better it.

Honestly Iíve seen a few streamers playing it and anything above 10 is certainly a high kill game. Highest kill game Iíve seen is itemp at 13 I think.  But it is pretty new. Iím sure there will be some streams coming out soon.


Using the robot is probably the fastest way to get around and getting high ground quickly

My highest kill game is six. When I killed the six person I was shot by two or three other people at once and finish fifth. I have only played three matches of it though

Only played 3 games so far got 14 kill win my first one.  Got a gold backpack on the second kill so after that it was like stealing candy from a baby.
It definitely felt like a 20 would have been possible.

probably less kills than in trios. its easier to get more kills in modes where people have to stick together than when they can fully separate. same as in fortnite, i think the solo squad record is like 46 or so while the solo record is in the mid 30s.

I won 6 games yesterday and ranged from 10-16 kills. You could easily win a solo though with ~5 kills.

Also a heads up, the teaming in solos is unbelievably bad.

For me, the problem is:
The Solo-Mode is only 2 weeks - so i dont want to play it a lot, because when i love it, it gets shut down...:-(

The day the announce that the Solo-Mode stays in the game, i start playing the game - but until that happens: no, dont want to "loose" a game that i like...

Btw: I dont like Trio - i played it, but i dont like it... I would love to hear that Solo stays forever...

Itís a good warm-up mode. I think they are just testing to see how much people like it and stay on it. That and to make people spend money which I have a very hard time doing for this game even though I like it a lot. Bought the season one battle pass but no interest in season two battle pass
