If you’re anything like me, you probably despise experiencing server issues in-game. Whether it’s lag, rubber-banding, or freezing … the only thing worse is the game shutting down entirely. But, if you’re playing Apex Legends, there are luckily a few ways that could tell you whether your current issue is one on your side or if it’s a server issue.

Is Apex Legends Down? How to Check Immediately

In Apex Legends, there are a couple of avenues you can take in determining the source of this issue. It could be isolated to you, or hundreds — if not thousands — of other players.

The first and easiest to check is going to be the official Apex Legends Twitter page. This page is constantly updated very often with major server health issues. In the event of something going wrong, this is the first place you’ll want to turn for an official answer. They’ll typically post that there’s an issue, any additional details, and then post when everything has been cleaned up.

If you want a rundown on anything that’s being experienced, third-party sources are the best bet for you. Websites like Downdetector and Apex Legends Status are going to have your back no matter how small an issue. These’ll show the platforms affected as well as any other ongoing issues currently with the game that you may not even be experiencing.

Those are going to be the best choices to look into when you’re experiencing issues when trying to play Apex Legends. Though it would be nice if the Apex Legends Twitter also handled announcements for smaller service issues, it’s good that third-party sites are picking up the slack.
