Take the time to practice with each weapon whenever you come across it, you never know when you will be left with slim pickings. It’s not likely you will get your favorite loadout every match, and having some skills with all the available weapons will give you a fighting chance of survival.

Another helpful tip for finding the best loot in Apex Legends: If you find a spot that seems to have a higher amount of top tier loot, remember the location. That particular area will have high-end weapons every match although the loot will vary.
