If you’ve been playing Apex Legends for quite some time now, you might have already known that reloading your gun before its magazine gets depleted will allow you to save a decent amount of time depending on your weapon. This is particularly noticeable with the Spitfire which shaves off a whole second using this method.
However, this isn’t the fastest method out there to reload your weapon quickly. In fact, there’s another trick you can use to shave off lots of time reloading your weapon, especially during fights. This method is called animation canceling.
Let’s find out how to do this.
How to Instant Reload in Apex Legends
The gist of this trick is pretty simple: you cancel the animation reload of your weapon by swapping to your secondary or melee weapon as soon as the magazine counter resets then swapping back immediately to your main weapon.
While that may sound simple enough, pulling it off actually requires a bit of skill and practice. Also, you want to keep in mind that the reload speed will differ depending on the weapon you’re using.
The weapons that were able to benefit greatly from this track are the Spitfire, Havoc, R-301, G7 Scout, and the Peacekeeper. These weapons were able to shave off at least 500 milliseconds from their reload time.
Meanwhile, weapons like the Flatline, Hemlok, Devotion, Prowler, Mozambique, Alternator, and Triple Take benefited from a reduction of around 200-500 ms. Other weapons have just below 200ms, making them not really worth it as the risk to reward ratio isn’t really ideal at all.
Genshin Impact: How to Unlock Red Desert Threshold Domain
The Red Desert Threshold is one of the new three domains in the new desert area in Sumeru.
There are three new domains that you can challenge in Genshin Impact’s 3.1 update. One of them is the Red Desert Threshold. Of the three domains, this one is actually very easy to unlock. All you need to do is accept a quest and follow the quest marker.
If you don’t know how, then this guide is for you.
How to Unlock Red Desert Threshold Domain in Genshin Impact
Similar to unlocking the Altars of Mirage domain, you also need to accept the Golden Slumber quest for this one. However, you don’t need to complete the entire quest to do so. Instead, you only need it to point you toward where the domain is located.
After accepting the quest from NPC Bonifaz, follow the quest marker until you arrive at a huge hole in the ground. All you need to do is drop down that hole and go all the way to the bottom. Make sure to cushion your fall by using your wings.
Once you reach the bottom, you can then find the entrance to the Red Desert Threshold domain. Unlike the other two domains, you don’t really need to do anything here. You just have to interact with the domain and enter it right away.
