Apex Legends has been a prevalent, fast-paced action battle royale on both PC and console that frequently and faithfully pumps out engaging events and fun content for its playerbase. Some may not know that there are a couple of community-made “rules” regarding player conduct inside and outside the game. One of these that has been recently circulating the internet is “Apex Legends Rule 35.” The short guide below aims to fulfill any interest surrounding Rule 35 and the rest of the “official rules.”
The main Apex Legends rules include 24, 32, 33, 34, 35, and 63. We’ll start in numerical order, with Rule 24 being the first.
This rule states that players have the right to “third-party” a fight in Apex Legends. That is to say, it’s completely acceptable to jump into an existing scuffle and wipe out other unexpecting teams in the process. It is an exploitative strategy that players are free to use.
Rule 32 is the Apex Legends iteration of the typical online quote, “Pics, or it didn’t happen.” If a player claims they performed an impressive feat such as a solo “pentakill,” they must provide evidence (screenshots or gameplay footage) to back up their achievement.
This rule implies that players should seldom use the mic and in-game chat feature during a match. The point is that only essential communication should be made during gameplay. In other words, players should restrain themselves from making any unnecessary comments or remarks.
Those who’ve surfed the web long enough will know that any fan-made content regarding Rule 34 is best posted elsewhere than on the main forums. Players who wish to see “distinguished artwork” of their favorite Apex Legends character are inclined to do so in the appropriate recesses of the internet.
Apex Legends Rule 35 states that if Rule 34 content or the conversation revolving around Rule 34 doesn’t exist, it will come to be in the future.
Last but not least, The 63rd rule of Apex Legends refers to the existence of gender-swapped versions of all the playable Legends in-game. Namely, curious players may be intrigued to know that fanart of a male Wraith or female Crypto has been created by the community.
Hopefully, these explanations clarify any ambiguity surrounding the 35th Rule of Apex Legends or any other of the player-made rules. Are there any other interesting “rules” in Apex Legends that you’ve heard of? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!
