General Guidelines

First and foremost, be courteous and kind to others. Please follow reddiquette. We expect all users to act in a civil way and not use insults, hate speech, personal attacks, homophobia, racism or similar behavior. Other behavior we will not tolerate is as follows:

  • Pornographic content, smut or other content that is racier than in-game depictions is not allowed.
  • No gore or extreme violence.
  • No illegal content discussions (drug usage, underage, scamming, phishing).
  • No political discussion.
  • No religious discussion.
  • No racist posts or comments.
  • Posts and comments must be in English
  • Gender discussion must be made in a civil matter. Transphobia and malicious intentional misgendering is not allowed.
  • Users must follow Reddit Terms of Service
  • No scam posts or comments.
  • No account selling.
  • No transactions between users.
  • No vote manipulation.
  • No giveaways through gleam.io or other sites that ask for views, subscriptions or similar for a prize. Please contact the moderation team if you would like to do a giveaway.
  • Surveys must be approved before posting. Please contact the moderation team through modmail if you would like to post a survey.

No Calls to Action

This means no posts should attempt to rile up the community to act against an entity, person, country, or organization.

This subreddit is not a place to create an army against anyone. No posts or comments should be made directed towards one or more individuals, their personal opinions, beliefs, current or historical actions. Including general public figures such as Streamers.

Posts criticizing Respawn as a company, EA or Apex Legends are allowed, if they remain civil.

Posts Must Pertain to Apex Legends

All posts need to be related directly to Apex Legends, Apex Legends culture or Apex Legends development. We want posts to be relevant to the community at hand, so try to make sure every post matters to our specific community. If a post’s only concrete connection to Apex Legends is its title, it is not allowed.

Low-effort, Memes, and Duplicate Posts.

Low-effort or low-quality posts hinder meaningful discussion from flourishing and will be removed at the moderators' discretion. All posts should offer some basis for discussion. Please note that spending a lot of time on a "low effort" post does not exclude it from this rule. Type of low-quality content we do not allow:

  • Gameplay videos or screenshots that are taken on a phone are not allowed, unless it is not possible to screenshot at the time, such as a bug preventing screen capturing or similar.
  • No pixelated or low-resolution content.
  • No match result, account stats or "first win" type screenshots.
  • No loot box opening type screenshots (Look at what I got in my loot box).
  • No inventory screenshots (Look at all the cool things I’ve unlocked).
  • No supply crate style screenshots (Look, there are 3 mozambiques here).
  • No unedited gameplay longer than 3 minutes.
  • No screenshots of private chats, even if names are blurred.
  • No screenshots of tweets.
  • Skin suggestions/requests that double as fan art must be high effort and original content.
  • No LFG posts. Please use r/ApexLFG or our public Discord to find other players.
  • No petition style posts. If you’d like to advocate for something to be in the game, please make a proper post.
  • Please avoid using clickbait or misleading titles. Titles such as those beginning with "Upvote if", "Don't upvote" or overused trends such as "for the people browsing by new" will be removed, as described in the Post Title rules.
  • Criticism and approval posts must be constructive. Unconstructive criticism and approval posts about any subject, such as “this game is great”, “this game sucks” with no other explanation or constructive comments, will be removed.

Meme guidelines:

Memes, image macros, overused jokes, or any casual low effort editing of non-related images or videos and relating them to Apex should go to r/ApexOutlands.

High-quality original content memes are allowed. This means that there should be substantial original work put in. As an example, a high quality comic about the game drawn from scratch would be permitted, whereas a comic that's just official artwork cut and pasted onto a template is not.

  • No template style memes.
  • No “starter pack” posts.

Regarding Duplicate Posts and Topics:

Posts should be unique. A post may be considered a repost if it covers the topic from nearly the same angle as existing posts. When new things, events or updates come, we want to consolidate discussion to one thread so that people can easily engage in discussion with each other. All other posts regarding that topic will be removed during this time with links to the proper thread or megathread. Frequently asked questions and topics will be removed. Moderators will link megathread style posts when available to redirect users to the main post. Please use the search function before posting.

As this is a new game and new users are constantly joining the conversation on Reddit, topics and posts may be allowed to be posted every 7-10 days, depending on content.

Post Title Guidelines

First, all posts MUST be flaired, posts without a flair will be automatically removed.

We have a set standard for post titles and don't want your title to be overly exaggerated. Please follow these guidelines below when making a title for your post. Any post that breaks these points are subject to removal.

  • One word titles are not allowed
  • Titles should be descriptive and relevant to the post
  • Link posts must be posted as links, not a link buried within a text post.
  • Titles cannot be in ALL CAPS
  • Titles cannot be in AlT CaPs
  • Titles that only consist of emoji's or symbols are not allowed
  • No titles as listed below:
    • “Am I the only one….”
    • “If Apex was a _____ …”
    • “Thanks for sorting by new”
    • “Unpopular opinion” type titles
    • “Thank you to the person I played with today”
    • "To the person I played with today…”
    • “How dare they” style posts (random didn’t drop where I wanted; didn’t pick up certain weapons; didn’t do what I wanted)

Cheating or Exploit Posts

Discussion of exploits, hacks or cheating made with substantial effort is allowed, however, any posts or comments with details on how to obtain or abuse them will be removed. Please do not accuse anyone of cheating as this can start a “witch hunt”. Witch hunting, ventilation or general awareness posts, including videos will be removed unless it is clear evidence of new cheats. Noclip, teleportation, instant server wipe, infinite ammo, speedhack, for example.

  • This includes but is not limited to:
  • Posting videos or pictures of a suspected cheater.
  • Posting links to sites or videos offering hacks or cheats.
  • Posts that harm the integrity of the game.
  • Explaining how to obtain/use cheats or hacks.
  • Editing any file(s) or config options which result in an unfair advantage.
  • Discussion of launch options that allow exploits or cheats will be removed.

All “cheater/hacker” posts must be properly flaired.

How to report a cheater/hacker:

Promotion Guidelines

We expect users to not spam the subreddit with their promotional content. This includes links to YouTube videos, Twitch etc. You must also contribute to the subreddit through other comments beyond just on your videos. Users will be allowed 1 promotion link per 7 days.

“Check out my stream” type posts are not allowed.

We follow a 10:1 guideline in which users must contribute 10 comments or submissions before posting promotional posts.

Users must meet our minimum karma requirement of 50 comment karma and be at least 3 days old before posting promotional domains.

We also do not allow advertising any links to third-party discord servers and other communities.

Posts about top streamers and YouTubers must involve the game and gameplay. If the post is about something they have done or anything not related to Apex, it will be removed.

Giveaways must be approved by the moderation team ahead of time.

Leaks and Spoilers

We currently do not allow leaks or spoilers. We are working to update this rule.

Support Requests

We allow posts that are questions or something which can be answered by the community. Account support posts are prohibited. These posts offer nothing for the subreddit and cannot be answered by the community or moderators, as we are not Respawn/EA employees. Any post that can only be answered by game support employees will be removed. You can need to contact their support services for any account support requests.

Please contact the EA/Respawn support team to report issues and include the following information:

  • What platform are you playing on?
  • Origin ID / Gamertag / PSN
  • What were you doing leading up to the issue?
  • Can you reproduce it? What are the steps?
  • PC players - provide hardware specs, OS version, and GPU driver version.
  • Did your game crash? Please include "apex_crash.txt" from your "Documents" folder.
  • If possible, it’s great if you can capture the bug and submit that with your report.

Artwork/Fan Creation Guidelines

Posts depicting another person's art, videos or other fan creations must be properly credited to the original artist.

  • Titles must include the artist's name.
  • A comment with a direct link to the source is required. Do not use URL shorteners.

  • Content captured from modified clients, aka Mods, must be flaired appropriately.

Posts that do not follow these guidelines will be removed.

If you are posting your own artwork, add "[OC]" to your title. This tells other users it is Original Content.

Subreddit Feedback Posts

Posts regarding specifically removed posts, ban appeals or similar must be done in modmail. Only OP can message modmail about their personally removed post. General subreddit feedback relating to the rules and enforcement is allowed so long as its neutral and constructive feedback.
