Twitch streamer and former professional CS:GO player Michael "shroud" Grzesiek says Apex Legends is still the best battle royale on the market — aside from one caveat.

It doesn't feel like it's been that long since the battle royale craze took hold, but so many competitors have entered the fold since Fortnite's launch in the summer of 2017. In February of 2019, Respawn Entertainment launched the free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends, to the surprise of many.

Since then, and six seasons later, Apex maintains a loyal fanbase. The battle royale has some of the tightest shooting mechanics of all games in the genre, receives a steady drip of new content from its developers, and is currently the fifteenth most-watched game on Twitch.

Shroud happens to think Apex Legends is "by far still the best BR on the market."

Shroud sang Apex's praises during a recent Twitch stream. "Even though they're slow devs," he says, "people expect updates faster ... my point is Apex is still the best BR. Regardless of their speed of content."

Just this week, Respawn has had to remove the Sentinel because of a glitch, and apologize for a rework of Pathfinder's cooldown. Still, this is high praise from a notable name in the FPS world.
