A bunch of Apex Legends players have discovered a simple, yet revolutionary trick to make all of the weapons have zero recoil. Here is what we know so far.

How to Achieve Minimal Recoil in Apex Legends

Like with all massive multiplayer games, the meta game for Apex Legends is always changing and as a result can leave many players out of the loop on what weapons to use. There are weapons like the R-99 SMG which have ridiculously high fire-rates that can be a little harder to master than your bog standard R-301 or Flatline ARs which boast minimal recoil. Now however, according to this video by popular Apex Legends YouTuber chiknnuggey, there is a way that can make mastering the weapons seem as easy as possible. And it is much simpler than you might have thought.

Strafing in video games is a very common mechanic, especially in FPS titles. Being able to fight while you are on the move is one of the most basic mechanics you can have in any combat type game. Yet in many well known FPS games, like CS:GO, Rainbow Six: Siege, and Valorant, the run-and-gun approach can become more of a hinderance than an advantage as your bullets tend to fly everywhere. That however does not seem to be the case in regards to Respawn Entertainment's popular BR game.

As shown in the video, if you strafe while you are shooting, the recoil becomes all but a distant memory. This means that if you play your cards right, then just about any gun can become a melt-machine. Except maybe for the Mozambique, but that is a story for another day.
