Reasons Apex Legends Is the Most Beginner Friendly Battle Royale
Three Person Squads
Apex Legends isn’t the first battle royale to offer three player squads, but its full embrace of that team number makes for a very welcoming place for new players.
Theoretically, you could not land a single bullet and still come out a champion assuming your teammates carry a little additional weight. So when a new player who is still learning the ropes gets teamed up with a couple of veterans, they can participate without feeling like they are going to get knocked out in the first few minutes of the game if they had been playing solo.
Of course, a team is only as strong as its weakest link, but by approaching the teams in this way Apex Legends allows for a lower skill threshold for entry so new players don’t get frustrated.
Those who are late to the bandwagon and start playing Apex a few months after it has released can enter the game and not be totally intimidated by a slew of 100+ kill players when their two teammates can be at that level as well to support them.
Fornite has offered three-man squad modes starting back in December 2018, but even in that mode, new players will struggle to balance reaching the same level as their teammates when shooting and looting is combined with a third element, building.
