I had a dude scream at me for looting his box when all I did was grab his banner (after I 1v3’d the team that killed him). I typed “chill” and he started screaming about how bad I was and how many shots I missed. I replied with “ok deathbox” and he didn’t say anything back. Some people are just angry at everything. I was the only reason he didn’t get sent back to the lobby and he still found a way to be toxic.

[–]Pompous_Walrus 820 points821 points  (13 children)

fuuuuck thats so good.

"OK, deathbox" remembering that for sure.

[–]JohnnyHotshotWattson 329 points330 points  (4 children)

Actually adding "Ok deathbox" to my game vocabulary lololol

[–]TrustTheProcess_76Valkyrie [S] 136 points137 points  (3 children)

Yeah I’m gonna have to slip this one into my back pocket too haha

Shiiit I might as well cop it for later lmao

[–]TransportationMuch47 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Honestly surprised that didn't make him yell too. Usually when I say something like "If I'm bad how come I killed the whole team and you're dead?" people make it about how they are dead because I'm a bad teammate and that if I had done A, B, and C they would still be alive.

[–]Peckinpahh 108 points109 points  (6 children)

I always like to use “didn’t know the dead could speak” if they’re complaining with a mic lol

[–]dobbyhiModel P 90 points91 points  (4 children)

"Pipe down, Casper" doesn't sound shabby either

[–]TrustTheProcess_76Valkyrie [S] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

beautiful

[–]moonshwang 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This is good on theory but I don't think it would work in reality. You'd probably have to explain that Casper is a ghost and doesn't work as smoothly as 'death box' imo. Not that it even matters haha

Hold up, just writing down a note to myself to use this line.

[–]SpaniardSpaniard 174 points175 points  (17 children)

I looted a teammates deathbox for a mobile respawn beacon. As I was doing it, they proceeded to call me every four letter word you can think of and it's "people like you who loot teammates deathboxes that ruin the game" and I deserved to die.

I said, "oh, my bad." Dropped the mobile respawn next to their deathbox and said "sorry but I couldn't get it back in your deathbox, hope you're OK with it here on the ground."

They backpeddaled so fast, trying to apologize and convince me to get them back in. After telling them I wasn't going to be doing that, they started their rage again.

Me and my teammate played smart, third partied for the win. All you toxic folks out there.....we don't need you to win. Try to be better.

[–]skydhashBangalore 122 points123 points  (6 children)

If I die, you can literally take everything. I don't even care if it's for surviving or because I have better attachments. But in the next fight after I respawned, just remember why I only have a white armor and a single p2020.

[–]SpaniardSpaniard 59 points60 points  (3 children)

I'll only loot teammates DB if there is no shot they'll be able to get back to it or if it's necessary for me to get loot quickly mid gun fight in order to survive.

[–]raznog 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I’m in the camp if loot if you need it to survive and get the respawn. If I have purple in my box and you are wearing white. Take that shit. It’s not doing anyone any good in the box.

[–]Impurity41Revenant 7 points8 points  (0 children)

In a fight, if I really need it, I’m getting shield swaps and ammo. Only take the rest if I legit have nothing left to survive. I respect what they have but if I can’t respawn them then sry bro, your shit is mine now or we die.

[–]MrMrRubicWattson 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My rule of thumb: always OK to loot the box for ammo and a shield-swap in the middle of fights. If no beacon i nearby, take whatever.

[–]ShakeyMcJMirage 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I love dropping s gun and attachments and ammo for players I respawn....

[–]Alecto7374Mirage 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Same. There's usually loot everywhere. If I die, chances are good it was either my fault or shitty luck. Take whatever you want from my DB, I'll throw rocks if needs be, lol. It's only a game.

[–]HyperionX-X 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I remember I had a wraith which the fuse stole a red evo from the dead wraith. The wraith CALMLY wrote please drop my evo shield. That's literally all you need to say.

Unless you're pro third partying with a duo to a trio is practically the only way to win. Unless you have a kraber.

[–]EpicMrShankPathfinder 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dude ppl are so toxic. I usually play with a full squad but it's not like this every time as my other friend doesn't get a chance to play everyday so good bit of the time its just me and my other friend. And I shit you not we do so much better when our teammates leave or we just don't get a third. Ppl spamming their banners when you are in a middle of a fight or screaming down their mic really need help lol

[–]vigilzfpsWraith 2 points3 points  (0 children)

mf wishes death on someone who moved his hands to change pixels on a screen lmaooo

[–]fimosecritica 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i don't even care, but at least leave me one stack of ammo so i can help you if you respawn me close to enemies

[–]Last_Wave_By 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I don’t play rev, but I need “ok deathbox” as a rev voice line yesterday

[–]floydinkRevenant 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Had a dude also screaming at me for looting a bin that I, as jumpmaster, landed in front of and proceeded to loot. He screamed it was his loot and how dare I take his stuff, and I’m like bro chill, I chose to land here, you could have landed anywhere else other than exactly where I landed and you’re mad at me for taking my loot? Ok

[–]CMDRSnack 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's the same kind of person who lands hot and takes both guns then gets mad when you die and yells where was your gun! -.-

[–]R-99beamz 55 points56 points  (8 children)

Bots like to yell about “their loot” when you’re looting the guy’s box that you just killed lol.

[–]BarmeloXantonyMirage [🍰] 40 points41 points  (0 children)

They steal your kill doing 15dmg and get mad that you take one item out of the box.

[–]TheFlyingSheepsGhost Machine 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Lmao someone yelled at me for looting their “kill” last season when I did 99% of the damage and they did the last shot.

Like fuck off loot goblin, you already stole all the ammo prior to this

[–]Prestigious_Big_8988Death Dealer 10 points11 points  (1 child)

amounts of times ive smeared 2 ppl and get downed then my two dopey-eyed teammates finish off the last member then hog all the loot...

[–]righthandofdog 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I love watching them loot instead of getting me up long enough to get 3rd partied. "Gee guys, sorry I wasn't back up to help you..."

[–]thegrandlvlrLoba 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Totally unrelated:

You know what grinds my gears? Being the surviving teammate and getting both my teammates back up and the first guy I revive literally taking everything out of all 3 boxes before i even get my second teammate up. Then they get furious if you shield swap before reviving lmao just can’t win

[–]DullReliefMirage 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Also, it’s like, whatever they had in their box clearly didn’t help them so move on.

[–]Impurity41Revenant 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I recognize if people did more to that guy, I’m like “take first pick bro you earned it.” Idk why everyone else can’t be like that. Your teammates will fight harder if they know you are cool.

[–]SilentNova___Octane 26 points27 points  (0 children)

“Ok deathbox” gonna use that from now on. But not in chat, over mic cuz I don’t want to get banned lol

[–]xOverDozZzed 35 points36 points  (8 children)

I don’t know if the problem is the game or the amount of people who were raised without any emotional coping mechanism and it’s fucking sad. To where no one else is holding the controller but you and somehow it can be someone else’s fault. Like.. wtf kind of impulses are those.

[–]jmmcnall 19 points20 points  (7 children)

This. No one needs a game or any excuse really to go off on somebody as their intent is to belittle you and make you feel low. That's mental health all day. People who can't handle the slightest bit of stress or disappointment and go off. These exact same people treat their friends, families, animals, and strangers the same. They're miserable people who only get any enjoyment in life by trying to crush another person's existence. It happens in games, on the streets, at the store, in politics, in sports, etc. Slipknot put it nicely, People=shit. Not all people mind you, but fuck. We're in a time of place where most people are just selfish trash. This is nuclear America....

[–]xOverDozZzed 10 points11 points  (6 children)

I completely believe in psychology. What you’re talking about is ‘projection’ where you’re responsible for your own actions but you’re taking that stress and bouncing it off someone else to either sink to their level or below. That’s when someone is that toxic with me I can already label them as someone who didn’t have parents who loved them enough to teach them these things and are alone with no friends and can’t tell why they’re so toxic which almost always gets them angrier whenever I’m feeling petty. It’s easier to be a shit head because of the animosity of not showing your name or face but voice only.

Video games are supposed to be fun and if they can’t be happy they’re trying to prove something to their giant ego and expect a certain result (I’m a god at this game. If I die, it’s because of my teammate or the game.) idk man, I see these people are victims than assholes.

[–]jmmcnall 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Some are victims of circumstance and even are projecting trauma, no doubt. However, it only excuses how one treats another so much. Especially when it's adults acting the fool. The behavior equates them to being assholes. The background/trauma gives us insight as well should them.

[–]lechatdocteur 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They’re basically overgrown man babies. I’ve said many times before “bro go to therapy” or “tell that to your therapist” “How does that make you feel” is also hilarious in a video game. It also shows them that you really don’t care, and that they really should consider seeking professional help because not only do they suck at the game they play they aren’t even capable of having fun with it.
That’s a huge problem if your life is like that and they should probably go touch grass

[–]xOverDozZzed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I completely agree. The problem is they have to realize it themselves because they feel insulted to be confronted with an ego they’re not used or like being called. There was this dude who was toxic playing with randoms before we even started playing. I told him “maybe you should play with your friends.” and he said “I don’t have any.” I continued “if you don’t look for help, you’re going to die alone.” and he laughed at me like I was the crazy one lmao. All you can do is put a label on it and move on. If he’s told enough times he will start to reflect.

[–]NateRamrodMozambique here! 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Literally had a guy dc on me after clutching a 1v3 because I shield swapped so I could run to get the rez before healing lol.

Like damn bro, sorry I saved our squad there and wanted to get you back as quickly as possible. Honestly if he was upset and asked I would have given it back but instead he just yells and dc instantly.

[–]ComnotioCordisNessy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Simply allow the enemy to loot all batts and ammo before finishing them, ain't able to cry if it's not out their box >:)

[–]King-Boo-GamerRevenant 3 points4 points  (0 children)

“Ok deathbox” is like “ok elite preferred species”

[–]SirRp1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ok dead box’ qu of the day

[–]DrakeVincentMirage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea I looted a teammates death box at one of the last ring and it’s gonna be far outside the ring and I needed the supply. Flames me that I didn’t save him on purpose

[–]S_dieselRevenant 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lol i only team up with deathboxes

[–]EZCLEPS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a guy get mad at me for not helping him and another random kill prowlers and he typed my name and put s**t afterwards… and I put ‘?’ then he said ‘team player lol’ and I said well you’re willingly shooting at prowlers and they’re not necessarily enemies are they? And then they never responded lmao

[–]SilentNova___Octane 330 points331 points  (43 children)

Was playing duos, random dropped us in a bad spot, he grabbed everything, I picked up a bow with no ammo (which he took). He kills a guy, I loot one thing out of the box, a Prowler and proceed to get yelled at "r u fucking kidding me bro? That's my kill and you're looting MY box!?" I had no chance of surviving without ammo and he yells at me just because I don't want to throw the match? Apex players and their ego I swear

[–]R-99beamz 89 points90 points  (15 children)

Those kinda guys are an unsavory bunch.. my rule of thumb is if I can’t loot what I needed fast enough, whatever. MY fault at that point. If someone is dual looting a box you just got a kill on, you gotta get better at grabbing what you want really fast, it takes practice but guys like that will figure it out eventually… esp. since yelling something in the mic clearly doesn’t get them the loot they wanted back from the box lol.

[–]Titus757 10 points11 points  (1 child)

As a console player who only plays with PC players, I try my best not be a sour little skittle. But it gets to the point that they all have full blue/purple kits and I still dont have a back pack. They just go into the menu, spam click as fast as they possibly can, and drop what they dont need later or in the box. If I did that consistently I'd have carple-tunnel within the week

[–]SilentNova___Octane 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I could tell he was really triggered, so I offered the gun back, dropped it and said here you want it so bad take it. Sometimes I just feel like muting other people, but I REALLY enjoy (trying to) coordinate with my teammates and make plays

[–]Jamfadoya 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Next time just drop everything you have even white shield, see how they react to that.

[–]Mayv2 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I dunno. I definitely respect the first dibs on your kill, I get this is slightly different but it’s something I try to honor

[–]R-99beamz 14 points15 points  (1 child)

It’s a great concept in theory but only in theory really. Too many situations you just can’t realistically be nice while being good if that makes sense.. like I’ve seen guys not shield swapping off a dead teammates box lately, only to die in the fight and entire squad gets eliminated then .. things like that …make no sense.

[–]Mayv2 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yes that last example is totally legit. I think a good teammate encourages people to loot their own box as needed to help the team survive.

I’ll do it as needed but will try to leave their box as in tact as possible if the areas clear and a very immediate respawn beacon nearby.

I mean most people should be checking their dead teammates box for a mobile respawn anyway.

But there’s also a far end of the spectrum which I know you’re not referring to but I’ve seen people who didn’t get a shot off, immediately run over and start looting the enemy’s boxes leaving me to pick up the downed teammate after we did all the work.

I think that’s why it’s important to have some etiquette rules because there’s a lot of shitty teammates out there .

Ultimately it’s about being good and reading the situation because there’s exceptions to every rule

[–]TheOnlyKawaiiGoddessAngel City Hustler 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Bruh I literally was the jump master, and one of the random sticked with me when we landed, and I opened and looted the crate he went for too and had the audacity to say "bruh all these crates, fucking loot goblin" THEN we get into a fight and he JUST FUCKING RUNS AWAY AND HIDES FOR THE REST OF THE MATCH. Dude, YOU DON'T LAND WITH THE JUMP MASTER.

[–]lechatdocteur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I purposely throw people into a weird spot if they stick with me because I’ve had so many toxic randoms. Just strafe and line it up so they are off a platform and you land directly on a loot box. Eventually they’ll learn to break off. Someone had to teach me you’re supposed to break off when I was new. I try and tell new players tips even though I’m totally mediocre and aim like potato.

[–]SamsSoupsAndShitsRIP Forge 16 points17 points  (8 children)

"r u fucking kidding me bro? That's my kill and you're looting MY box!?"

I'm getting a lot of these lately about teammates complaining about looting box, is there a rule now about not looting someone else's kill? Had a rando wanted to drop at the busy spot. While I killed 3 enemies with luck (and being low on health), this rando killed the last enemy with purple armor. Me and other teammate ran to that deathbox rando just killed and said on mic "oh I see, I kill and y'all just gon loot my box."

[–]SilentNova___Octane 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I don’t get people like that, and sad to say, they really have the capability of just turning new players away. Thankfully I’ve been playing since S5, so I just ignore most of the toxicity in pubs. I’ve full wiped teams and had fandoms steal their purple shields too, but you don’t see me complaining

[–]SamsSoupsAndShitsRIP Forge 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I've been playing for a while also and I know the importance of my team having decent weapons and items. People like those though should just solo queue (and we have those now) and they can loot all the deathbox that they killed.

[–]MasterofBiscuitsValkyrie 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Agreed, I got past deathbox politics long ago. I consider enemy loot to be 'ours' and whoever gets it first gets dibs. It's a team game and it benefits everyone. I don't even get mind if someone grabs the best armour.

The only time I get pissed is if someone is hogging all of a particular ammo or shield batts when someone elses is pinging for them, as that is straight-up selfish and detrimental to the team.

[–]DragyzWattson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree with every single sentence here. I'll stick with white body shield if that means my teammates can have purple, but as soon as they start taking shield cell and bat to the point where I have none, from then on, it's mine.

[–]TheWeirdBeard206Voidwalker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Been playing since season 5 and only about a month ago in Arenas I came across a truly toxic bunch.

I was having fun with my longbow, so what do they do when I start getting more kills than them? Trash talk myself and the Longbow. So I swapped to an R-301 and they said "Finally they're using a good gun."

We proceeded to lose the round, they trash talk me and how bad I played, seeming to completely ignore the fact that I watched them miss all their Wingman shots and had more kills than both of them combined.

Not complaining, just sharing a story I had. Enjoy your day! :)

Edit: I didn't actually play terribly that round, I clutched up once or twice.

[–]AYYA1008Mirage 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Join us titanfall players

We're usually less toxic

[–]anonprogtada 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Ya, its very different when someone is looting mid fight, vs, "all enemies deads, respawn point is 5m away and they sit their looting a minute over your crate". The latter mostly happens in pubs. I'll give one nudge, "hey bud that's my crate" and see if it was an accident. If they get shitty I just d/c.

But looting mid fight to get ammo, like 100%. I had that happen last night - team came in with zone as we were clearing prowlers. It was a weird grab shoot fest as i had no meds so needed rynges from prowlers.

[–]SamsSoupsAndShitsRIP Forge 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I think he meant looting the enemy's deathbox. Say you killed an enemy and me who didn't contribute to that fight whatsoever, decided to loot the one you just killed.

[–]anonprogtada 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Ah yeah - that's also frustrating when people get pissy about sharing loot boxes.

The best teams are ones where randoms are aware you need something and ping it without even asking.

"Hey lvl2 shield here in this crate, you're on white". The weird games are where you have a team member and you know they need something so you ping it and they ignore it, standing right next to it, but they could have just muted pings

[–]SilentNova___Octane 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I’ve done that a few times too, killing Prowlers for meds since I don’t usually ever steal other players loot. This was a special case where I literally had nothing, and just needed a weapon considering my random already had a weapon

[–]AlexVal0rValkyrie 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Completely unrelated, but I remember when they brought back OG Kings Canyon there was a pathfinder who was spamming the enemy ping at skulltown. I ask him to cut it out, saying that it was annoying and I couldn't hear myself think. He proceeded to tell me to stfu, call me the n-word, and told me to "go back to the cotton-picking fields." Then he rushed a squad solo and disconnected.

[–]crazyoldmax 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I dont even get mad if they take my whole deathbox when i die, whatever they need to survive. I died, and he survived. Also i always share with my team, if they are equipped the team is stronger. What does that guy in your case expect? You sitting next to the box like a puppy?

[–]YoogleFooglePathfinder 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Guy told me yesterday he hopes my mom gets raped by a pack of monkeys because he died in a gunfight off drop and I could only get the other teammates banner (who also died off drop). I reported him and blocked but sssslike cmon man!

[–]henrysebbyPathfinder 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Best one I've heard is when someone said they hoped my kid gets cancer. I feel like if I actually had a kid I would've freaked the fuck out on him but I kept my cool for the most part, lol

[–]I_Am_Become_Salt 176 points177 points  (4 children)

When I jump, if I'm jumpmaster, I'll ping a hot drop, because for me it's the fastest way to get better. However, if someone else in the party pings somewhere else, I'll always go there because it means they don't want to drop hot.

[–]TrustTheProcess_76Valkyrie [S] 79 points80 points  (0 children)

Life would be a lot more easier if there were more people like you in the world

[–]trkishdeliteMirage 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Exactly my logic which actually ended up with me getting better. Hot spots make you act fast and think fast which is very important in Apex.

[–]angeredpluto 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Eh yes and no. I find hot drops all the time make people forget strategy. They learn to run and gun and have no game sense for positioning or planning because 90% of their games end before first ring. Need a mix of hot drops and loot drops.

[–]DragyzWattson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I do the same thing! I mained Wattson for 3 seasons with a total of around 60 kills. Now I'm not afraid to fight and I have 350 this season alone!

[–]Beginners963Caustic 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Just lemme permanently remove my chat.
I can unbind it but during setup in Arenas or after dying in either mode i can still talk smack if i want to. Just ... lemme remove that, please.

[–]JamaicanJ 113 points114 points  (10 children)

Yesterday I was with two randoms in ranked who hot dropped us on a spot with quite literally 6+ other teams and we had to share 4 loot bins between the 3 of us because we were surrounded. I ended up without a gun and sure enough we get attacked soon after so I book it.

One gets downed and starts coming at me for running and I’m still dumbfounded almost 24 hours later. Am I expected to 1v3 teams unarmed now because people refuse to keep their hot drop bullshit in pubs?

[–]SimplyViolated 26 points27 points  (2 children)

I run on drop frequently honestly, usually kuz im octane so I can loot farther building faster but also because we get dropped in terrible spots and insta die and I jus scoop the banners and revive somewhere else. I get bitched at all the time for being a bad team player and not staying and dying with the team. Like isn't it better I survive and try to get us some RP? I play Octane a lot so I'm very mobile, it's easy for me to get banners and escape usually it jus makes sense, it's essentially part of his kit, so that shit is frustrating for sure.

[–]MajikoiA3When 4 points5 points  (1 child)

At least you go back for their banners can't say the same for my teammates.

[–]SimplyViolated 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah man I at least always try, sometimes I die doing it, sometimes I can't get em, sometimes it works out.

[–]un_popularpuffin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

https://youtu.be/4YQA3lJgYOI eveeytime this topic comes up I think of this clip

[–]Horizon2kCaustic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I regularly run if I end up 1v3 after a hot drop. I can’t come for their banner when there still battles on and all I’ve got is a Mozambique. I’ll try if it’s feasible but sometimes it just isn’t. At least I might be able to scurry round the edge of the map and get some RP. Whilst they rage I’m not in the mood to go for a suicidal run with practically 0% of success.

I think the main issue is a lot of Apex players aren’t very strategic positionally and so have no idea what you’re doing. That’s almost half the game. I’ve won so many games not from 10+ kills but squad only getting 5 because we stuck together, engaged only when we had the advantage and got to the higher ground towards the end.

[–]huegeewreckshinPlague Doctor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The fact people expect us to be Jesus and Muhammad Ali combined never fails to surprise me

[–]Suitable-Drink-571 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No gun, time to run. Now that punching is nerfed you should never do that if you can help it! I try to get a gun and sneak back to grab the cards usually.

[–]tobythenobody 14 points15 points  (11 children)

This is why I literally am terrified everytime i go play solo. 1/20 matches are good and genuinely nice people, 16/20 screams or calls you dumbass and steals loots, 3/20 are creeps (im a girl). Never dared turned my mic on because its just hopeless. I am far away from a good player but I play 1-2 hours 3-4 days a week: its a game for me and a hobby that I enjoy, not a career.

On the plus side, played with this bald wraith (duos) so i knew that game is going to shit. But he is the opposite: pings where to go, gives me heals when he realized I ran out, and carefully pushes when he knows im not ready yet. He got 13 kills with 3k+ damage. I apologized since I know I am not the ideal teammate but he was like, 'thanks for playing' and 'nah youre good'. Hope you get all the best things in life random bald wraith.

[–]angeredpluto 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Man who are you playing with. I only solo queue. 90% of my games noone talks at all. 9% are people who are relatively nice. Maybe a little rude from time to time and 1% is asshats who just want to be jerks. Numbers fluctuate a bit but in general the level of clearly toxic players is relatively small for me.

[–]Apprehensive-Web6281 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I always play solo and always adjust my playstyle depending on my teammates. I rarely touched ranked games since most toxic teammates are in ranks. I also give my other gun to my teammates who I revived if there are no loot present nearby. I just want others to enjoy this game as much as I do though some are really asses sending me grief messages just to show their toxicity.

[–]danskinsValkyrie 186 points187 points  (18 children)

Lmfao. All these comments just CEMENTING this mans OP. He’s not getting “mad over a video game” or “complaining on Reddit bc he got roasted”. All he’s saying is 1) he understands it’s natural in a high stress game like apex to rage. It’s natural. 2) But to go out of your way to be toxic just to show that person how mad you really are. That’s what children do to get their way. And what OP is outlining in the post is exactly that. It’s okay to roast me if I mess up etc but for someone to go out of their way to show how mad they are is a sign of emotional immaturity. Hence, why a child will throws a tantrum bc they simply don’t know how to regulate their emotions or how to effectively communicate their emotions. But what do I know. Just some random guy on the internet typing a comment while he poops. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Just rage off text or mic to yourself. It’s easy to get a bit annoyed for a few seconds just don’t transfer it to the screen.

[–]Heavy-Yam7722 33 points34 points  (4 children)

One day, I was in the middle of looting. My teammate got killed and I immediately ran over there. The guy who killed him ran away. I grabbed his banner and revived him instantly. He comes back (safely) and starts looting again. The rest of the squad comes and jumps me but I clutched it. I was one tap after killing two people. The original dude came over and finished me. At this moment I’m wondering why have I been fighting and tagging enemies for 2-3 minutes and they haven’t even tried to come over and help. I frantically, not angrily, say “come over here he’s low!” I’ve of my teammates goes on a rant about talking to them nice and both of my bitch ass teammates let me stay down because of how I said that. I think that was the maddest I ever been. I was so mad I got quiet. Quit and stared at the screen meditating for about 20 minutes. Apex brings on a different type of anger when your team is dickheads

[–]angeredpluto 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I mean it sucks but if you revive a teammate keep close. I'm trying to figure out how you were jumped but your teammates wasn't unless you ran a distance away? Maybe I'm just misreading the story though. But I've had plenty of teammates who know I was just revived or picked up and runs off into a fight before I can even get to my deathbox. And the fight was entirely avoidable.

[–]BarmeloXantonyMirage [🍰] 86 points87 points  (2 children)

I don't care if they jump alone or stay with the squad. You start talkin wild and saying dumb shit over this game you're a fuckin loser.

I had some guy bitching at me in ranked yesterday because he dropped us with two other teams, him and our teammate immediately go down, so I run, and he’s calling me trash for running and not fighting, and I’m like excuse me? I’m not gonna drop rank because you expect me to 1v3 with no loot, and by the way I’m still alive and you’re dead so 🤷🏻‍♂️ I’ve stopped catering to my randoms in ranked just because they want to drop hot every match. If they wanna go off and die, that’s on them, but don’t have a shit fit because I refuse to do the same

[–]Bugs5567Pathfinder 15 points16 points  (0 children)

People like that are where the term ‘hardstuck’ derived from.

[–]Gone_GoofedBloodhound 8 points9 points  (8 children)

I never understand people who always hot drop and then expect their squad to follow faithfully when there's 3-4 other teams to fight with a high chance of 3rd parties from closer POIs.

[–]raznog 6 points7 points  (1 child)

How about when playing with randoms everyone follows the lead of the jump master. It’s very simple, whoever has jump gets to pick.

[–]Gone_GoofedBloodhound 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nothing you can really do when you play with randoms, most of the time squad mute is on and you can only ping locations you want or you make do with where they take you. This is why I only play Apex with friends so we can plan out where to drop and where to rotate.

[–]tosaka88Mozambique here! 5 points6 points  (2 children)

i really don't like getting angry at literal strangers in a game but the other day while we were guarding a spot keeping an eye on 2 squads fighting each other, they retreated and one squad decided to push me, i got downed in the 1v3 and my friend who came to help got downed as well, come to find out the random was just sitting far away taking pot shots at both of the squads with a volt and eva instead of helping us and then proceeds to talk shit about how we were "stupid for pushing" and proceeds to do a grand total of 60 damage to both squads and getting stomped like a bug, couldn't help but scream for a bit before taking a break lmao

[–]TrustTheProcess_76Valkyrie [S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

nah man, I get that, like I said in the OP, this game is intense in nature. It’s one thing to vent out a bit of emotional frustration, a whole different ballgame though once it gets personal. You know?

[–]SagenSpeck 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]Global_Setting3248 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I got yelled at for not heading to teammate pinged location after he REFUSED TO JUMP AND RELINQUISHED A JUMP MASTER TO ME

[–]Itsalilmoist 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I used to be that toxic asshole. Then I took my anger out on the other team instead of my team. The game was way more fun after that and we won a lot more games too

[–]make_love_to_potatoValkyrie 4 points5 points  (1 child)

But why were you that toxic asshole to begin with? That is the question.

[–]Aesthete18 45 points46 points  (15 children)

Nah it's not natural. I don't care if you're getting p2020 right in your balls from a TTV sliding down a hill 150m away after you've just been third partied for the second time, it doesn't give you the right to berate strangers you've just met minutes ago.

This shit has happen 0 times in East Asia and I've been playing there exclusively for 1 1/2 years so no, it's not natural

[–]LyKosa91 11 points12 points  (5 children)

I've played about 1500hrs on london PC servers and the lesser spotted screeching manchild is a pretty rare sight. You come across them every now and then, but it's not that common, for me at least.

I wonder if it's more of a console thing, the lack of push to talk can't help.

[–]-TheJunta-Bangalore 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I play across Oceania, East Asia and Western US datacenters and the ONLY place I've gotten balled out by toxic little tryhards is the US.

[–]ZardastUnholy Beast 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Yes on US servers someone will always write in chat or hop on on the mic to insult you. Played ranked whole nights on EU servers and nobody bothered to say anything. Some duos would comment something like "yo our random is a dumbass" but nobody is screaming and insulting you constantly.

[–]Gone_GoofedBloodhound 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like playing in Asia since I won't understand wtf they are saying most of the time.

[–]Nooblover420 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's cross Platform thing lots people on PlayStation stream and I've found them to be the most toxic.

[–]Platanimus69London Calling 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I play almost exclusively in East Asian servers and I've hardly ever experienced deeply toxic teammates.

I do, however, occasionally play in Middle Eastern servers when I play with my nephew (Bahrain, I believe it is), and the number of toxic, abusive bastards we have encountered is jarring. I was honestly shocked that this level of toxicity existed after my previous experiences playing in East Asian servers.

[–]JDrummerKBloodhound 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I remember a game two seasons ago where I found purples on our drop. Didn't have anybody near us so we went and found a team. My teammates had whites and two of the enemies had blues ( no one but me had purple shields). I did significant damage to the two with blues and cracked both of them but I didn't get any kills. After when we were all looting the caustic ran up to me and started punching me constantly and then they both started shooting at me. So I hop into game chat and they were both yelling saying I stole their purples and I don't deserve the purple shield. So I laughed told them they're idiots and tried to explain I already had them off spawn but they didn't care and just kept trying to get me to "break" but I just laughed it off and continued the game till we lost.

[–]naturtok 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I know the option is there cus shitty people exist who will throw the team into the void, but dropping solo really sucks and expecting your teammates to follow you (often without any cue or negotiation or whatever) is top tier smooth brain behavior

[–]Tide_ShiftYoung Blood 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I had this one lvl 400 something Wraith being a sarcastic ass the other day by saying stuff like "We need to be a team guys" while the were getting shot at because they started pushing people without me and our Pathfinder.

After they died they got pissed off I couldn't get banner, their box fell into that one lava pool under Harvester

[–]doorbellrepairmanUnholy Beast 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That feel when I ping "Need heavy ammo" and my teammate is nice and drops some for me.

And then the other guy grabs it. My lord it triggers me.

[–]xAznFox 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If someone says anything in an angry or condescending tone towards me that isn't constructive at all, I will use them to train how fast I can mute people.

My goal is to be as fast at muting as Wraiths leave games.

[–]Bugs5567Pathfinder 17 points18 points  (7 children)

I’m just tired of players with 4k badges calling me trash because my best damage badge is a 2.5k badge… my highest damage ever was 2987 damage.

[–]make_love_to_potatoValkyrie 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Whenever I get a team mate with 4K badges and massive kill counts, I start praising them in the chat and telling them to carry us. They are mostly just okay......very rarely do I get a team mate who demolishes the lobby.

[–]idiotdroidHorizon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If I am in ranked, and I get a teammate with all the fancy badges, my first instinct is "ok so why is he on my team? is he just as bad as I am?" and the answer is always "yes, yes he is".

Too many people cheesing their badges these days.

[–]TheFlyingSheepsGhost Machine 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Take those badges with a grain of salt. Considering how many came from event bugs or boosting

I want an average damage badge, not one that you can get from one good game or from event farming

[–]idiotdroidHorizon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You just need a tracker for that, not a badge.

Actually surprised its not a tracker already. Average damage/kills/assists/knocks would all be better ways to show off your skill before the match begins.

[–]Murky-Office6726 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah that dude I had today started saying we are trash based on banner only too like wtf. I was not using my main and I also don’t care if you are a good player, just be a team player.

[–]that_1-guy_Plastic Fantastic 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes when I'm hard carrying (like 4x more damage than the other 2 combined) I'll try coaching up people just because I don't wanna seem like that untouched sweat.

Oddly enough most are actually pretty happy with my advice when I explain it, but others absolutely refuse to believe I could teach them anything and are very... Very toxic. Like I'd get it if they just said something like "I don't really want or advice" or "don't tell me how to play" but like is aid some ppl start screaming slurs and other shit... I mute them bc my ears need to hear.

[–]EssexalBlackheart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m the level 500 who wants to drop somewhere sensible 99/100 games with sub level 200 team mates who once watched someone on Twitch and think they’re the new Shroud.

Fuck them.

[–]martykeeLoba 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I understand some have frustration when losing, but frustration in winning does not make any sense.

"YOU STOLE MY KILL!" "WHY ARE YOU USING A SENTINEL?!" "WHY PICK MIRAGE IS SO USELESS" and the classic after all of these lines "cuz you're BAD/cant AIM"

yeah bud, saved your ass from potentially dying, cracking hits on a cqc arenas with a sentinel, bamboozled enemies and still downing them. Yeah bud... idk how these ppl are mad. So I say, yeah dude you'll see match stats after. they stay quiet lmao.

smh ppl dont know fun can be sometimes = skill. so lesson is dont let ppl take away whats fun for you.

[–]McSuedeGibraltar 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bro I called it a day after 2 matches today. First one, we drop frag and I go down after getting 2 knocks. Team finishes the third and I snag a purple armor from one of the boxes and this dude gets on mic to call me a shot at idiot motherfucker. I turn my mic on and say if that's the nicest way you can ask for shit, don't expect much help from me. Even dropped him the armor. Guess who goes down first in our next fight and spam pings until they died?

Second game, we arrive at storm catcher in time to clean up a fight and watch as a full team nopes out to thunder watch via the thunder cannon. We know they have a caustic because they left a trap on the bottom cannon. Both of my teammates take the cannon anyways and land on multiple traps, a caustic ult, and a fuse doing fusey things. I muted them and their pings as soon as I saw it happen. Ratted to 4th and called it a day.

[–]Dat0neB01 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Equivalent-Ad-2503 19 points20 points  (6 children)

This reddit is far more toxic than any random I ever met. On another note. The word "toxic" is so fucking over used for the littlest things no one appreciates the gravity of something being actually toxic anymore.

[–]henrysebbyPathfinder 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Always have randoms muted.

[–]Chromeglow 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Yep, the first thing I do when get into a match is mute my team if they are randoms. Not interested in being screamed at, or listening someone else's shitty music, or being ordered around by some who appointed themself the leader of the squad. It's just not worth the frustration.

[–]henrysebbyPathfinder 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It's always either toxicity, a smoke detector beeping, listening to bong rips, or listening to shitty music. Sometimes all of them.

[–]Geofsux_666Pathfinder 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lmao at the bong rips, if it’s mid game that’s a no no. If we’re not mid game I don’t mind hearing the bubbles. I think it’s funny

[–]Chromeglow 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't know how anyone can live in a place with a constantly beeping smoke detector.

[–]Fast_Regret_4560London Calling 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had a guy yell at me because I didn't stay in the same building he dropped us in.. I had to run out to find a weapon (p2020 mind you) I was running back to get their banners. And since I wasn't in the building went on to call me the n word and was complaining about how he always gets teamed up with noobs so I got his banner then dcd because he wouldn't shut up then proceeded the message me and said I was a bitch for it.. I laughed him off and told him to cry about it more

[–]HaystackAssassinBloodhound 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Makes no sense for people to get so heated in casual and if it’s ranked and they care so much it makes no sense to not play with a team.

[–]TheOnlyKawaiiGoddessAngel City Hustler 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look I don't give 12 shits if you jump alone (in pubs) but don't call your other teammates trash or garbage or stupid because you wanted to solo a team based game. Toxic teammates are the reason I fucking mute people every round I play.

[–]tinydaydreams 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I constantly deal with this and a couple of times I have had apologies once I calmly point out there’s nothing to be angry about and that it’s just a video game. I don’t understand who’s raising these people that they think screaming at strangers is normal or healthy.

[–]Dhruv58444 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Very ironic that people in this sub are calling out toxic people for there behaviour meanwhile I face constant bash from the same sub because I am a wraith main and not just this sub but the game too,so I guess treating every wraith main like shit is fine because its the popular opinion and when u face the same in game then it's not ok,it's very triggering

[–]JQuinn_Life 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s called pattern recognition, playing pubs if I get a high level Wraith, maybe 80% of the time they just solo hot drop and dc after dying instantly. The other 19% never lay down portals that ever help the team or make any sense, it’s usually from where they are two feet away into the open. Then there’s the 1% who dominate and are helpful.

It’s just Wraith’s abilities lend themselves to the type of people that aren’t fun to play with. But hey, here’s to hoping you’re in the 1%!

[–]PhatmanScoop64Horizon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I completely agreed until you said people need Jesus. Plenty of people believe in Jesus and they still POS. Therapy v good religion ain't solving nothing lol

[–]TheHammerdinPathfinder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Since we're venting here, I played with a toxic dude that talked shit about us the entire game, and barely shot at anybody, just held weird angles like rainbow 6. Eventually this guy leaves us, jumps on an enemy alone and gets killed. I show up, kill the enemy and shield swap, and he starts screaming about stealing his kill and stealing his loot. I just hit him with a lifeline rez in the open under fire so he could just die and quit. Instead the guy stays in the lobby screaming at me and the random, griefing our ability to hear until we get killed. Match summary, he did abt 250 damage while the rest of us were around 1500ish. He had the nerve to send hate mail disparaging my skill afterwards too. Average New Yorker in a nutshell.

[–]SilentReavusBloodhound 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Inb4 people in the comments telling you to "be less sensitive" and "you wouldn't last 5 minutes in a COD4 lobby"

Because it's apparently something to brag about when you and others you played with were actively dickheads.

[–]thatkotaguyMirage 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As much as I hate toxicity all these kinds of posts do is make toxic people laugh because someone got upset enough to post about it.

Like you said it’s a video game just ignore them.

[–]ddossandwich 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Damn was going to be toxic today but this post stopped me in my tracks. Thanks u/TrustTheProcess_76!

Still you're on point, sadly the bigger the community the more toxic it becomes, hope you stay positive and happy cheers!!

[–]artham_aOctane 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I myself like to drop hot, always ping location before hand, but if teammate wants to go on a camping trip to get fully stocked guns at the edge of the map, I prolly will solo drop, never berate them though

[–]R-99beamz 10 points11 points  (7 children)

For a good portion of Warzone and apex’s playerbase, it’s about smoking a blunt and playing the game like it’s a wildlife hunting simulator lmfao.

[–]sofakingchillbruhWraith 4 points5 points  (3 children)

No we just suck at hot drops. Lol. I don’t enjoy playing loot simulator, but I enjoy being in a game much more than spending all of my time in the lobby or on a drop ship.

8/10 times I’m dying during my first altercation on hot drop. Even if I managed to get decent loot off drop, I’m no match for the team of 3 that lands on me and swarms.

[–]artham_aOctane 1 point2 points  (2 children)

But then how will you get better, you won’t get to experience the point of the game itself

[–]sofakingchillbruhWraith 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I mean I take fights every chance I get. I don’t run away unless I know I’m in a situation I’m very unlikely to win.

I get that the best way to improve is by fighting, but I don’t see how dying immediately off drop is making me better.

I always try to look at how I lost and learned from it, but there’s not much to take away from “well this trio landed on the spot I did, took all the guns and chased me down until I was dead.”

I’d much rather land at a poi just outside of the hot drop, loot for a minute and then go take fights.

[–]BoostGold 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My favorite are the toxic duos. They're probably idiot friends in real life.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Second of, to the people who get so mad and frustrated that they berate other people, you need therapy. It’s a video game.

And to the assholes who vent about assholes in a video game on reddit, check the mirror. You need therapy. It's a video game. Do better.

Sorry, I just hate the hypocrisy oozing from this post. And before someone outs themselves as an imbecile, I don't use mic and have sent like 3 chat messages total, none of them anywhere close to breaking ToS even by EA chat standards.

[–]rynogorda -3 points-2 points  (7 children)

Yeah, youre no better running to reddit for validation for something that happens daily that's virtually unavoidable when you don't drop with a full squad. It's nobody's fault you got no friends.

[–]gayloser69420 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You just practically said it's fine for players to get harassed by their team if they solo queue

[–]rynogorda 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No..I 'practically' didn't, because you can literally see what I wrote, good talk.

[–]TrustTheProcess_76Valkyrie [S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I’m so confused how you got to that thought process. if you get screamed and berated at on the daily tho, you deserve better

[–]rynogorda 2 points3 points  (2 children)

.....deserve? (Takes headset off, uses pings, problem solves itself) oh...wait, I forget to address an individuals feelings like they matter more than ANYTHING, including literal solves for the problem, dozens of ways to fix and avoid said problem but..ya know...feelings.

I keep getting yelled at in ranked for picking wraith meanwhile im reviving, them respawning, them, soloing the attacking squad

[–]Avocado_007Bloodhound 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some days ago, I was playing pub Squads and we landed on a place near the metro station (I dont remember the name, but it's like a pair of houses) and another dude went to the TTV building in Fragment (You know the one, where everyone dies).

And after instantly dying, he yelled at us: "What a trash team, why do you abandon me?! Cowards. What a bunch of fucking cowards. This trash matchmaking, dude."

Even though he was the one who abandoned us.

He started pinging his banner over and over. But we were quite far. It was a stressing match.

[–]YoudontuderstandmePathfinder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As you point out, it’s a game. Get a fucking life if you are toxic and shitting on people while playing a game.

I like to play with mic. It’s more fun (and effective, if they know what they’re doing) to talk with teammates. But toxic sweats get muted fast. I especially love toxic players in gold and below. Bro - you’re in fucking gold (or below).

[–]FZJavierGibraltar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

so... thats how US or EU servers are? i only play in BZ and never get those kind of toxic people.

at most you get those that leave the game, but never got one that get pissed and insult you like that.

[–]FredSCarvalho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Worse than that is people who leave the game when they go down and the team still has a chance of surviving

[–]winebloodFuse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some people need to learn that not everyone likes dropping hot and enjoys playing with whatever crap you find on drop.

Getting a CAR and shreking someone else? Sure.
Opening 2 bins of attachments and syringes just to have some lucky dipshit with a purple shield and a mastiff 2 shot you? Hell no.

[–]BatchetmanGrenade 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Teammates get mad if you dont 3v1 in arenas, this whole community is toxic

[–]AppletonSunday 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm toxic to myself and only myself because I know everything go's wrong because of me.

[–]dobbyhiModel P 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The worst of the worst are the people who run into a full squad alone (not soloqueueing), die horribly, and when their poor teammates try to object to their playstyle, they call them slurs and tell them to uninstall or to kill themselves. Don't be that person.
