In an attempt to improve teamwork and decision-making, an Apex Legends player has drawn up a concept for a new feature to be added to the game.
With Apex Legends being one of the most tactical, team-oriented battle royales on the market, the emphasis at any level of play has been on coordination and communication. In order for a team to execute plays successfully, the players have to not only be mechanically sound, but must also have the right timing and positioning when engaging. This feature hopes to help out in that department.
A concept that is simple, yet could be effective, Reddit user u/littlejjguy mocked up a distance tracker that could be displayed on a player's HUD for each of their teammates.
With the thread titled, "Concept I made to see how far away your teammates are in relativity to your position. (yes I drew it lmao)," u/littlejjguy also included a visual for the feature concept.
A standard feature found in rivaling battle royale games, such as Call of Duty: Warzone, being able to know the proximity of your teammates on the fly is a very useful tool to have as the minimap can be very limited once they are far enough.
With Respawn Entertainment already confirming that Season 8 of Apex Legends will have an in-game damage tracker, this distance tracker feature would complement it quite nicely.
