Introduction:
Conquer with character in Apex Legends, a free-to-play Battle Royale shooter where legendary characters with powerful abilities team up to battle for fame and fortune on the fringes of the Frontier. Master an ever-growing roster of diverse legends, deep tactical squad play, and bold new innovations that level-up the Battle Royale experience, all within a rugged world where anything goes. Welcome to the next evolution of Battle Royale.

Step 1: Apex Legend and Well-Rounded
Your first task should be getting a win and 5k damage dealt with eight different Legends. As of the game's launch, only eight are available, so this would be one win with everyone and a total of 5k damage dealt with each Legend. If you're playing this game later in its life cycle, be sure to get a win with each of the game's four classes as well (as I'd assume more Legends will be released and you could possibly use eight Legends from less than four classes). Once you have these achievements, you can then focus on using only the Legends you really enjoyed.

Along the way, search for as much Legendary loot as possible in an attempt to get the "Decked Out" and "Fully Kitted" achievements. You can share loot between your squad to help with this, and drop the items to share both achievements with your squad if you're successful in getting the required items.

There are also achievements for respawning a squadmate and getting to be Kill Leader in a match to work on as well. The first is quite easy, but the latter will take either some very aggressive play, or very tactical play; this will depend on your temperament and teammates.

Step 2: The Player
Unless it took you a very, very long time to manage wins with eight different characters, your next goal would be to rank up to Level 50. This step will vary greatly depending on skill level. Experience earned is based on how long you stay alive and how many kills you get for the most part, so players who can win or get podiums more often will get this done much more quickly than those who are taken out in the first half of matches.

I put 60 Hours minimum for the completion, and this is based on someone who might win one out of every 5-6 matches and places in the top four consistently. Some people will take closer to 100 hours or even more if they win only rarely and don't manage top ten finishes consistently. This also does not take into account any double xp events, or bonuses from the Battle Passes which have not been released yet.

Step 3: Clean Up
If you've hit Level 50 and got all your wins out of the way, and are still missing anything, check the guide below for assistance with whatever you need. Some achievements (such as getting Legendary loot) are highly up to RNG, so you'll just need to keep trying and hope for the best. Some (such as "Kill Leader") are very skill dependent, so you'll need to get comfortable with a Legend and the different guns to really succeed.

There are 12 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Reach player level 50

    You will earn experience for a number of things in each match of Apex Legends. The goal is to survive as long as possible and get as many kills as possible. Along the way, you'll get a number of bonuses. Also be sure to play with a friend, as you'll get 5% bonus xp for having someone in your party before you start matchmaking. Here is the breakdown of experience gains:

    • Win: A nice 900xp bonus for a win.
    • Top 3 Finish: You will earn a bonus 300xp for getting to the podium.
    • Time Survived: You earn 3xp per second survived.
    • Kill: A kill on a normal player is 50xp.
    • Damage: You will earn 0.25xp per point of damage done.
    • Revive: Help a downed teammate to earn 25xp.
    • Respawn: Gather a dead teammate's banner and respawn them at a beacon for 200xp.
    • Champion Kill: If you kill the person marked as the champion for the round (which is the person in the game who had the best game prior to the one you're in, usually someone on a winning squad in their previous game), you will earn 500xp.
    • Be the Champion: You get a nice 500xp bonus if you are the Champion yourself.
    • Kill the Kill Leader: You will get a bonus 50xp for a kill on someone who has the most kills in the current match.
    • Be the Kill Leader: You also get a 50xp bonus if you are the kill leader yourself.
    • First Kill of the Day: Get a kill once per day for a 500xp bonus.

    Simply keep playing matches to slowly level up. Be sure to swap characters if you get a win to work on "Apex Legend" and "Well-Rounded" at the same time.

  • Equip a legendary Helmet and Body Armor at the same time

    Finding legendary gear, or gear of any specific kind, is all random in Apex Legends. There are some locations that are better than others, and various ways to increase your chances at good loot. For this achievement, you must have a helmet and body armor of Legendary rarity (yellow in color) at the same time. See "Fully Kitted" for tips on where and how to get the best loot.

    Note: You can share this achievement with your team. If between the three players you find a legendary helmet and body armor, be sure to have one person equip both, then drop both for someone else, and repeat for the third.

  • Respawn a teammate

    When a teammate dies completely (meaning their loot box drops and their actual body disappears), you can grab a banner off the loot box to carry with you. The banner is only active for 90 seconds, so be sure to grab it rather quickly. From there, scattered around the map, you will find beacons marked as green icons on the map. Take the banner there and hold to respawn the teammate. Note that the spawned player will have nothing in their inventory, so try to backtrack to their loot box, or share some inventory so they aren't completely useless, especially if this happens late in the game.

  • Equip a Fully Kitted weapon

    A 'fully kitted' weapon is considered any weapon filled completely with Legendary (yellow) attachments (the weapon itself does not need to be Legendary). Each weapon type has a different number of attachment slots, so using a Pistol for this will be easiest as it only requires two attachments to complete. You could also find a weapon already fully kitted with yellow attachments and get the achievement right away, which is likely how most people will do it. As mentioned in "Decked Out," loot in Apex Legends is completely random, so there's no guarantee of where to find a specific item. However, here are some tips to increase your chances:

    • High-Tier Loot Locations: The map is split up and labeled with what type of loot you might find there. There are ten locations designated as having a higher chance at high-tier loot, including Legendary items. These are: Artillery, Relay, Wetlands, Hydro Dam, Repulsor, Water Treatment, Thunderdome, Bunker, Airbase, and The Pit. These spots are circled on this map.
    • Hot Zones: At the start of any match, you'll notice a blue circle illuminating up into the sky. This is considered a "Hot Zone" and is described as having high-tier loot and a "chance at a fully kitted weapon." Obviously a decent amount of teams will aim for this, but it's a nice chance to knock this achievement out right away. The Hot Zone looks like this on the map.
    • Supply Ship: As you launch at the start of a game, you should notice a turtle-looking ship roaming the map. This has really good loot inside and can be repelled into from the ground, or even landed on right from the initial jump. The supply ship looks like this on the map.
    • Supply Pods: Throughout the match, pay attention to announcements and HUD markers. From time to time, supply pods will be dropped into the arena and generally have purple or yellow loot. I have found the majority of my Legendary helmets and body armor in these.
    • Lifeline's Ultimate: Using Lifeline's ultimate ability will call in a supply pod to your location. Use it whenever it's up for an extra shot as good loot.
    • Loot Drones: These little guys (the same ones who give you rewards when you level up after a match) can be found randomly and smashed with a melee hit and will generally drop higher quality loot. They look like this.
    • Dead Players: Probably the best way to get great loot. After you kill someone, the color of their loot box will indicate the highest rarity item they have. If you kill someone and a yellow box appears, get to it quickly - though make sure all hostiles are taken care of first so you don't get killed yourself or leave your squad out to dry.

    So even with all these tips, and hitting all the best possible spots in any given game, there is still no guarantee you'll get everything you need. Keep following these patterns for success in general, working your way toward Level 50, and this should hopefully come along the way.

    Note: You can share this achievement with your team. If between the three players you find a fully kitted weapon, or piece one together yourself, be sure to have one person equip it, then drop it for someone else, and repeat for the third.

    Note 2: The Mastiff and Kraber that can be found in supply pods do not count for this achievement as they do not have any attachment slots.

  • Be the Jumpmaster 5 times

    The Jumpmaster is randomly selected between your three squadmates at the beginning of the match, and this person is responsible for launching and flying to a destination on the map. If you aren't selected and someone passes the designation to you, this counts toward your five as well. Considering how many matches it takes to reach Level 50, this will easily come along the way.

  • Deal 5,000 damage with 8 different Legends

    You will need to do a total of 5k damage with 8 different Legends to unlock this achievement. It is not cumulative between everyone, each Legend must individually do 5k damage. You can check your totals by going to the Legends tab on the main menu, select a character, and go to their Badges tab to see all their stats. This achievement will unlock at the end of the match where you pass 5k with your eighth character.

  • Become the Kill Leader

    The Kill Leader in any given match is, obviously, the person with the most kills. However, a small caveat is that is does not unlock on the first kill of the match, or even the second. You must have a minimum of three kills to become a Kill Leader. If the current Kill Leader is taken out, a new one will be appointed, so you could get this by default if you have three kills and someone else with four is killed across the map by someone else. This should inevitably come as you get your wins with each character.

  • Win a game as an offensive character

    Offensive Legends are marked by the "bullets" icon on their player card. As of launch, this includes Bangalore, Wraith, and Mirage. See "Apex Legend" for tips on how to win matches.

  • Win a game as a defensive character

    Defensive Legends are marked by the "shield" icon on their player card. As of launch, this includes Gibraltar and Caustic. See "Apex Legend" for tips on how to win matches.

  • Win a game as a support character

    Support Legends are marked by the "cross" icon on their player card. As of launch, this includes Pathfinder and Lifeline. See "Apex Legend" for tips on how to win matches.

  • Win a game as a recon character

    Recon Legends are marked by the "radar" icon on their player card. As of launch, the only recon character is Bloodhound. See "Apex Legend" for tips on how to win matches.

  • Win a game with 8 different Legends

    Apex Legends is a Battle Royale game where 20 teams of three Legends face off to be the last squad standing, as the arena slowly shrinks. If you've played PUBG or Fortnite or any other Battle Royale variant, you'll generally know what to expect.

    You will want to use a Legend (a character with specific abilities) that helps round out a team (comprised of a primary damage dealer, support/healer, and defensive character would be the best), and know where to get the best loot (see "Fully Kitted" for info on that). Once the game starts, cooperation is the most important factor. Stay as close as possible with your squad, share loot, and use the ping function () often to call out places to move, good items, and enemies.

    The key to personal success is getting a good balance between close-range damage (shotguns are very important in the final rings) and mid- to long-range weapons with decent scopes (these will help you spot enemies before moving into a new location, as well as keep them away from your current location). You'll also want to be comfortable with your Legend's abilities, and remember to use them when it counts.

    There are numerous tutorials available on YouTube for the game mechanics, weapons, and Legends. If you're struggling, be sure to check those out.
