When you go back to Apex after May 1st

I was also amazed at how quickly double jump was engrained to my memory, tried doing that a couple times in my first matches back...

Trying to go back to pathfinder after getting used to 2 charges, a really long grapple distance, and a double jump really fucked me up man

Going from Apex to other BR games I find myself trying to climb walls and when I try to put my guns away I just end up inserting plates

ID: gwsa71q

I can never switch to another BR now. I keep trying to crouch slide while playing Skyrim for instance, I can't imagine how confused I'll be if I were to play Warzone for example

ID: gwsasca

Oh man I forget how often I try to slide in WZ and realize I didn’t go very far or just end up crouching.

ID: gwsjedl

I tried to crouch slide in minecraft last week

ID: gwsjwuy

Crouch sliding is a thing in Warzone. Not as satisfying but it does make you go faster. Just have to adjust some key binds.

Other games have so many invisible walls it's crazy, you can't climb everywhere like you can do in apex, and movement feels slow and unresponsive (for example in pubg)

I remember first playing apex and being so impressed with movement (especially with characters like Octane). Now I can’t get over how much Apex feels like it’s way too slow in comparison after hoping onto Titan fall 2.

ID: gwsujil

Any FPS outside maybe Doom feels slow in comparison to TF|2. Even playing rusty this last weekend (having taken about a year off) it just instantly starts getting your adrenaline pumping unlike any game on the market

Edit: also add in Tribes. The real OG for that ‘surfing’ movement

Check out Ultrakill in steam

Its really fast

While I haven't played Titanfall, I've seen clips and I think Hyperscape can compete a little in the hecticness of movement. While not fluid, it's full of abrupt, jerky motions that can be very disorienting

ID: gwt8pat

I know, all my friends were stoked about how smooth Apex was, but coming from TF2 I had that same thought.

Playing Apex to Titanfall is a nice switch in between. However, Titanfall to Apex results in you saying things like:

“Oh yeah. I can’t wallrun”

“Oh yeah. I can’t double jump”

“Oh yeah. I can’t bunny hop as well as before”

“Why is my grapple so short?”

“Why can’t I place 2 decoys?”

“Why can’t I reload while phasing? Why does it take 200 years for it to phase?”

Throws ping instead of fire star

ID: gws8otq

"why did my melee not kill that guy?"

though granted, that one occurs way more in titanfall

ID: gws90sp

Reminded me of this one

ID: gwshmc6

It also makes me think that the arc star nerf is justified. However, bonking an enemy with a frag for 10 damage because I forgot to use it to open a hold instead of using an arc star causes permanent brain damage

ID: gwsovri

“Where the fuck is my Titan?”

ID: gwsth5f

I just killed the 5 guy this game, where’s my god damn scorch?

ID: gwspfkq

"why didn't I switch back to my gun after throwing that grenade?!"

wait, actually that's a problem all the time not just after coming back from TF|2

ID: gwsjs99

"stim deals damage to me?!"

ID: gwsk13e

“Why am I not across the map in under 3 seconds?”

ID: gwsywbq

Playing path after a full day of grapple kraber is so sad

ID: gwso9mv

This is what I feel when I simultaneously play Titanfall 2 , then revisit Black Ops 3 MP, then try Infinite Warfare again, then go back to Apex. Lol

Hear that ringing in your ears?

ID: gwstez9

It’s tinnitus you should really go to a doctor jack

ID: gwstko1

You need to move a little faster than that son, speed is life

When i switch to titanfall i always try to holster my gun

ID: gwt8hct

I have x set to holster in apex

I also have x set to nade in Titanfall

Muscle memory sucks

I literally just stared at the picture for 5 minutes trying to figure out what's different until I realized that's a video

What was on May 1st for titanfall?

ID: gwsq27w

Free weekend.

People decided to play Titanfall 2 on May 1st in honor of the Season 9 update, and Respawn decided to help out and made it a free weekend!

ID: gwsqbp7

Oh, that’s cool. Thankfully I missed all the old gods of titanfall coming to temporarily reclaim their thrones.

ID: gwt9ql0

They should transition TF2 into free to play and do some weird slow merger of the two games into one where you load it up and can play both game types or something.

Apex feels so “grounded” after playing Titanfall.

It makes me appreciate how well the movement was crafted

ID: gwsweyx

You lot are so... terrestrial

So I stopped playing apex a week ago, since I wanted a break until season 9 and decided to pick up Titanfall. No joke, I think half of my time was spent trying to perfect the gauntlet.


Readjusting is going to be hell.

Tbh i think im staying with titanfall for a bit

13 : Anonymous2021/05/03 13:02 ID: gws0rvn

i tried to wallride on apex and I was so disappointed

14 : Anonymous2021/05/03 14:15 ID: gwsa1eu

Haven’t played apex yet I’m scared

15 : Anonymous2021/05/03 14:14 ID: gws9y1t

Any reason for the spike in numbers?

ID: gwsamvh

There was a big "Hey guys, let's all boot up Titanfall 2 on May 1st!" as the new Apex update is a love letter to TF2. Then Respawn stepped in and said, "Hey, that's a good idea, we're making it a free weekend on Steam!"

ID: gwshwti

Big brain move from Respawn tbh, enlarging the playerbase for titanfall 2 so more people are left wanting more and then boom, titanfall 3

ID: gwsh6km

also it was on sale for like 8 dollars a week ago

ID: gwsd6q4

What the other guy said, plus the Valkyrie trailers created a bunch of interest in Viper, who’s a boss in TF|2. The game was also on sale around that time, so sales went up.

This happened the first time I played apex
