Apex Legends PS4 Controls

Apex Legends is a lot like most battle royale games. You drop from the sky onto an island, sweep the floor for weapons and gear, and scramble to stay inside a series of ever-shrinking circles pressing 60 people towards inevitable conflict. But Apex Legends is also the product of the genre’s failures so far, a patient and refined response that makes for the most accessible, uncompromising battle royale experience yet.

  1. Useful, I’m learning these before I even play properly outside of training. I’m f*cking terrible at remembering controls!
