Apex Legends has not been out very long but the community for the game is already one of the biggest in the world. At the time of this writing, the game’s subreddit, /r/ApexLegends, has just crossed 700,000 subscribers. A non-stop barrage of memes, jokes, art, cosplay, and original content hits the pages every day, and if you blink, you just might miss something. Thankfully, we’ve been keeping an eye on it for you.
This post is the first in a series we hope to make a regular occurrence on Daily Esports. With so much amazing, interesting and hilarious content being produced by the community, we felt it was only right to begin spotlighting the best of the best. We will try to make this a weekly submission and keep all of you well-connected with the latest memes, artwork, cosplays, and everything else.
Without further ado, let’s begin.
We’ve all done it, and it’s been done to all of us. There’s no shame in a little scavenging. And hey, it’s not like they’re using it anymore. Not at this moment, at least.
Some in the Apex Community are very diligent when it comes to combing through the game to find things that haven’t been found before. One user took it to another level. While climbing and jumping around the training area, redditor IMA-Blackout found this adorable little easter egg:
We aren’t sure if it’s supposed to mean anything or if it’s just something a developer threw into the game as a joke. All that matters is that it’s adorable.
This is the second easter egg someone has found in the training area. The first was of a cute little plush dog hidden in the rocks.
[Update: This trick was patched in the most recent update!]
This incredibly helpful tip comes courtesy of ManishBH73. Apparently, if you quickly hit the crouch button while switching weapons, you can clip the animation and make the switch a lot faster. This ability will come in very handy in tight situations where you need to make that emergency swap.
Sometimes, you just gotta sit back and avert your gaze. This hilariously sarcastic comic was designed by SoraSabi, who produces wonderful art like this on a regular basis.
All of us could use a little more fitness in our lives, and reddit user ieatpotato5 found the perfect way to do it. This clever graphic takes many well-known Apex Legends inside jokes and incorporates them into a helpful fitness chart.
It almost hurts to watch. The cruel pointfourdnb and their squad had won the game. It just wasn’t officially over yet. In the most brutally poetic BM of all time, the victors make a mockery of their last opponent alive — a Lifeline — by calling in a care package of their own… right on top of the helpless healer.
Redditor DivineRedefined wants Apex Legends to get its own “last stand” mechanic. Sick of being useless “just because I’m bad,” Divine proposed that Respawn add a feature to allow players to bite the ankles of their opponents “for like 5 damage” while being downed.
We love this idea and we think Respawn should implement it immediately.
This one comes from Reddit user Ozmoziz, who says that his wife handcrafted this custom Peacekeeper replica. The work here is stunning and incredibly detailed and we’d love to see more of it. Keep at it, Mrs. O!
If you’ve played Apex Legends, you’ve probably met this guy. If you’ve met him, he’s probably made you want to ram your head into a wall. This comedically frustrating gif was created by Hirosensei2, who also takes the #1 spot on this list further down.
Not only is this quality comedy, it’s also a beautiful piece of artwork from reddit user fabricio_guerra. There are many witty little details thrown in throughout the piece, like Wraith stealing Gibraltar’s drink with a portal, Mirage using his own duplicate as a mirror to help him shave, and Gibraltar sitting his food on his own shield. You can find more of Fabricio’s work in his portfolio and social channels, which are displayed in the bottom-right of the picture.
This next one is absolutely hilarious. It’s ridiculous. And it’s annoyingly relatable. Rihta uses the brilliant comedy of Key and Peele here to take us through the journey of your average drop ship interaction in Apex Legends.
This is just very cool, hard work put in by YouTuber Mokeysniper. Right after Octane’s launch pads mysteriously appeared near the Market, Mokeysniper went in-game and diligently checked out every possible legend interaction they could find. The results were extremely fun and interesting to look at. Check out the video and witness all of the amazing and creative things you can do with these new launch pads.
One of our favorite submissions from last week was this excellent Legend concept by The-Goliath. It’s clear that a lot of thought went into it. The name is catchy, the art is nice and the abilities are all awesome! We’ve love to see Headline become a real thing in the game someday. I hope Respawn is paying attention!
This was by far the best post of the week for us. This #HighQualityGif was also created by Hirosensei2 and walks us through the daily struggles of the moderators on the Apex Legends subreddit.
And that’s it for this week! We hope you enjoyed our first community round-up, meant to bring you the best memes, artwork and original content each week! Let us know what you thought and feel free to offer suggestions on how we can improve! For this first edition, we went through the Apex Legends subreddit and picked from the top posts of the week. For future submissions, please feel free to nominate what you think is the best OC produced by the community. Often the best work won’t make it to the top of the subreddit or trend on social media, so we’ll need your help to find it!
Please feel free to comment on this post with your submissions for next week. You can also tweet us your nominations, @DailyEsportsGG.
Pizza. Music. Baseball. Wrestling. Netflix. If society thinks it’s a waste of time, I’m probably addicted to it. Also, I write about stuff sometimes.
