Switch Weapons Faster In Apex Legends

Simple trick on how to swap weapons faster in Apex Legends using crouch and weapon swap keys

Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a brand new player, weapon swapping is vital for close encounter gun fights. Apex Legends does not offer any type of in game perk, like CoD does, for players to swap items faster. If player are rocking an SMG without an extended mag, the clip empties in under 3 seconds. However, there is a technique that is proven to help swap guns faster giving any caliber player a huge advantage.

The video shows a very visible difference of how much faster it is when switching weapons. Although this technique is primarily intended for PC players as button bindings for controller players make it almost impossible.

There is no doubt that even the smallest difference like fast swap in a fight gives players a huge advantage in late games when almost all players are equipped with colored body armor. It also depends what players weapons of choice is. Although best for SMGs, you can also combine it with Wingman and Peacekeeper or Spitfire and Devotion.

In other news, there is still no updates on the Season Pass release date. Early leaks were wrong when stating March 12th as the release date. Respawn Entertainment seems to be postponing release as they tackles major problems with hackers and cheats.
