Team Deathmatch Guide
Generally, taking any kind of revive legend such as Lifeline is not a good step to ensure players get those Apex Legends wins.
The quick pace of fighting in the game doesn’t give them too much time to heal those teammates and then the abilities are simply wasted.
Choosing a Legend who can handle themselves alone is brilliant for this game mode as teamwork comes second in this violent mode.
Think of legends such as Octane, who does less well in team situations, as a strong pick.
High mobility is also very important with the speed that comes with this new game mode.
The faster the legend the better.
Legends who have dash abilities also do very well in Apex Legends Team Deathmatch due to the pace that they can escape or catch up to an enemy.

Best Legends for the new Game Mode
Pathfinder recently was blessed with a new buff in the Season 16 Revelry update.
With high mobility on ziplines, he can really get around the map at a good speed and get the drop on the enemy team.
Octane is also brilliant for this game mode as his high speed and damage make him perfect to venture out alone.
This lone wolf thrives in the more aggressive Team Deathmatch mode and provides some great skilled play for the team.
Rampart is also another brilliant Legend for this game mode with her turret ability.
Simply sitting still and watching the kills rack up is also pretty satisfying.
However, you must remember to get a good angle before choosing your place to sit and drill, or you could be in danger.
Although this game mode is the perfect space to go alone and get those kills, backing up teammates when they’re in a stitch is also important.
Staying as a group is much more intimidating to another lone rider.
Picking the loadout before the mode starts is also key to ensuring that players are comfortable with their weapons.
Experience and practice with a particular loadout before jumping into one of these new game modes is a valuable asset.
With the increased chances of care packages dropping, they can be used as a strategy against the opponent.
For instance, scoping out a drop and sitting to see who goes in for it is a brilliant way to rack up your kills.
