Apex Legends Basics
There Is A Fixed Party Of 3 Players
Currently, Apex Legends only has a squad mode consisting of 3 players. It doesn't have solo or duo mode yet. If you start a match without any friends in your party, you'll get random players in your squad.
Each Game Has 20 Teams = 60 Players
Each match will have you pitted against 19 other teams, with 3 players in each squad. The goal is to stay inside the ring and to survive elimination from enemies around you.
Selecting Your Legends
There is an order when selecting your Legends before the match and this is randomly selected. If you're placed 3rd in the order, you can only choose after the first 2 players in your squad.
Cannot Choose Same Legend As Teammate
You cannot have two of the same Legends in your team. Every single player in your squad needs to use a different Legend from each other.
Your First Choice May Not Always Be Available
In Apex Legends, it's possible not to get your 1st or 2nd choice of Legend within a match. So it's best to learn how to play each of the different Legends so you know how to support your team.
Recommended Legends For Beginners
It's best to choose Legends that fit your play style well. However, if you're a beginner, Legends such as Gibraltar, Lifeline, and Bloodhound are three of the easier characters to use in the game.Check Out Recommended Legends For Beginners!
Use Legend Banner To Revive Teammates
When your teammates get knocked out, they drop an item called a Legend Banner. Only fellow squad members can pick this up and place it into a Respawn Beacon, allowing their downed teammate to respawn.
Respawn Beacons Can Be Seen On Map
Once you have your teammate's Legend Banner, locate the Respawn Beacon on your map! Bring the Legend Banner there in order to revive your down teammate.

Legendary Body Armor Is Found In Supply Drops & Hot Zones
The highest rarity of Legendary armor can be found in supply drops and in hot zones. While Gold Body Armor provides equal shields to Epic (Purple) armor, it has a special passive benefit of being able to restore full shields when executing an enemy.
