Skills are a core aspect game which give you access to a large variety of different actions, abilities and items available in Apex. They are one of the first things you will do on Apex and make up an important part of the game. There are a lot of skills which all do something unique, but the system is simple to understand.

When you register your account, you will receive a tier 1 skill for free. Any other skills you wish to learn will cost money.

Skills can be levelled up to increase their power/performance by earning experience, which is gained while performing actions belonging to that skill. Each skill is affected by its level in their own way - such as reduced gathering times, better chances at performing actions or increased power of the ability the skill provides.

You can forget and change skills at any time you like. An example of when someone might do this is if they want to become a cop on the account and want to have defensive/heal skills - or someone might wish to forget their farming skills to focus on fighting. You can do that however, you have to purchase the skills and will lose your XP/levels from your previous skills.


Skills are split into 3 tiers - tier 1, 2 and 3. You have 4 skills slots which can be used for two tier 1, one tier 2 and one tier 3 skills, this is pictured below with all of the skills available (costs are still to be decided).


There are a range of different skills targeted at people who want to play the game in different ways. As we've touched on already there are farmer skills in tier 1 as well as healer abilities, medic which gives you an instant burst heal and healer which farm and create medkits.

Tier 2 and Tier 3 skills are limited to 1 per user which means you're going to have to decide which one you find most interesting. For your gang, you will probably want to ensure you have a range of different options available to you when fighting instead of all taking the same T2/T3 skills.
