Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale titles on the market.


Developed by Respawn Entertainment, the spiritual successor to the Titanfall series surprise released in February. Apex Legends gained immediate traction with its fast and fun gameplay mixed with new, unique mechanics to the BR genre.


Players who came over from Fortnite and PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS encountered a common problem: dying and losing. Here are five reasons you might keep losing at Apex Legends.


5 Reasons You Keep Losing at Apex Legends and How to Prevent Them


5. Unlucky

Ah, the bane of everyone's online losses: unlucky. No, seriously. Luck plays a big part into battle royale games and Apex Legends is no different. Sometimes it just comes down to luck.


4. Dying off the Rip

Dying off the rip is a pain in the butt way to continuously die. Although, it is one of the most common. Landing at a hot drop area and not finding a weapon more than likely results in an early death.


3. Looting Poorly

Looting poorly is the downfall of any individual player. Making sure one's equipped with enough medical items and shields, at least one powerful weapon and ample armor is key to winning in Apex Legends.


2. Bad Positioning

Even more important than loot is positioning. Hell, looting can even cause players to get caught out in bad positioning. Regardless, positioning and taking fights is imperative to winning fights and games. Take the high ground and don't pick fights where you're totally outnumbered unless you're confident.


1. Bad Aim

As obvious as it might sound, bad aiming is the downfall of most fights in Apex Legends. After all, if you're shooting at someone, and then they turn around and kill you, it was bad aim in the end that led to your demise. Try using the training mode to make sure your aim is crisp and clean.
