Is Apex Legends better than Fortnite?

If you are into gaming and Esports in general, you have probably heard about the upcoming Battle Royale, Apex Legends. This game has taken the gaming community by storm, and in the first 14 days, it gathered over 25 million downloads.

Some say that Apex Legends is going to take over Fortnite, and in my personal opinion, it already did. This game is providing you with everything Fortnite does not, so you will definitely enjoy it.

Apex Legends vs Fortnite

From my field of view, it definitely is. I have spent over 50 hours playing both Fortnite and Apex Legends and I have come to a conclusion. Fortnite is a game to have fun on, and nothing else.

On the other hand, Apex Legends is providing you with fast-paced gameplay. It is also highly competitive and based on team play and not individual skill and the level of building you are able to present.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a better way to enjoy Battle Royale genres, you are definitely in for a good time with Apex Legends, since this is definitely an upcoming Esports title. Apex Legends is definitely an upgrade to Fortnite. However, we are still lacking that perfect format for Battle Royale tournaments and leagues.

Good and Bad sides to Apex Legends

From my personal experience, Apex Legends has been on a level above Fortnite in most departments. However, there are some areas where Apex Legends need to improve.

First of all, the game is having random crashes that have not been addressed yet. Playing a Battle Royale game can be really stressful from time to time, and something like this should not happen. Given the fact that this game has been live for 20+ days, I am sure that this problem will be fixed in no time.

As we mentioned above, providing professional Apex Legends scene with a good tournament format is going to be hard. However, this game worked on everything other Battle Royale titles did not offer. I am sure EA and Respawn Entertainment have a couple of aces in their sleeve.

On to the good sides of Apex Legends. This game is stellar when it comes to fast-paced action and shooting. I have enjoyed every second of it so far, and at this point, this game is becoming a favorite of mine.

Shooting is what really intrigued me. There are a lot of weapons to choose from, and the same can not be said about Fortnite. Given the fact that this game has been on the gaming scene for 3 weeks now, God knows what else will be added in the later stage of the game. Furthermore, there are also different attachments, shields, and special areas on the map which makes this game unique and not repetitive.

Summary

You can probably see where we are going with this article. Apex Legends is definitely a new hit in 2019, and from the numbers, it has gathered so far, I am sure that they will take Fortnite down from the throne.

A lot of people do not play Fortnite because of the slow pace and the building system the game itself is based on. Apex Legends is a complete opposite of that. Furthermore, faster and slicker mechanics made sure that this game does not suffer from the same symptoms Fortnite and PUBG suffers from.
