Check your Internet Connection and if Apex Legends is Down

Assuming your Internet works for stuff other than Apex Legends (if it doesn’t work for anything, check with your Internet Service Provider), check out these links to see if the game is down:

  1. Apex Legends Twitter, which should have fresh info in recent Tweets if there are any problems.
  2. Apex Legends Status, an unofficial third-party site dedicated to Apex Legends.
  3. Down Detector Page for Apex Legends (Down Detector is also a third-party site that tracks the availability status of many online services).

If all is well in both departments, you may need to try to change your DNS.
