In almost every online multiplayer game, one of the biggest topics being discussed regardless of genre is the netcode. If you’re curious how the Apex Legends netcode is, and how it compares to other games in the shooter genre, wonder no more!

YouTuber Battle(non)sense is back at it again, and this time, he takes a deep dive into the Apex Legends servers and netcode! Given how we can’t see our in-game ping, or which server we’re connected to, Battle(non)sense had to do a little bit of finagling to find these out.

Note: tests done were on PC.

If you’re curious how it compares to the likes of Fortnite, PUBG, Battlefield V, and more, check out the graphic below.

Be sure to watch the video to see the delays for gunfights, movement and more. Note that Apex Legends does run on dedicated servers, and the outcome from the deep dive shouldn’t dictate whether you’re having fun in a game or not.
