Best Pathfinder Loadouts Strongest Build Guide Tips Tricks And Strategies Apex Legends

The Pathfinder Legend Class in Apex Legends is currently one of the most played heroes and the reason is because he gets great mobility from the Grappling Hook which opens him up to a lot of interesting combos and strategies. In this article we're going to be focusing on the Best Pathfinder Loadouts And Builds in Apex Legends.

Sniper Pathfinder Weapon Loadout Build Set

  • Main Weapon: Sniper - Kraber .50-CAL/Triple Take/Longbow DMR
  • Second Weapon: Shotgun - Mastiff/Peacekeeper
  • Throwables: Shuriken/Grenades

Build explanation, tips and strategies

This Pathfinder Gun Loadout is probably the best one because it's really versatile which makes it incredibly strong but you'll often rely on luck when you need to find a good Sniper and it takes a lot of skill to land all shots with one. There are two ways you can play the Pathfinder Sniper build: 1. Close ranged 2. Long ranged
The Kraber Sniper and Mastiff Shotgun are BiS but they're a very rare drop (legendary rarity) so you probably won't always get them in your games. The Triple Take and Longbow DMR are both great snipers (Triple Take in particular, because it fires three beams which do great damage in close combat). In case you miss your shots, always make sure to have a Peacekeeper Shotgun in your second slot because it's extremely powerful even though it's a common drop.

Close Ranged Sniper

The basic idea of this strategy is to utilize the Pathfinder's Grappling Hook Ability (Q), you can get pretty close to enemies and shoot while you slide on the Zipline-- when you learn how to do this and land your shots you are going to be unstoppable because most opponents aren't ready for an air-sliding oneshot Sniper!
Note that this requires incredible aim to pull off and it leaves you vulnerable if you miss your shots so be careful and practice.

Long Ranged Sniper

Like in all FPS games, the long ranged Sniper relies on being far away from it's targets and just picking them off one by one. If you choose this path you'll need to learn the bullet drop from your Sniper weapons. Always utilize the Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun in order to get to places where other players will not be able to reach or even notice you. Having a proper team to cover you when you're Sniping for them is a must.

Build explanation, tips and strategies

If your aim with snipers is bad, try out the close ranged build and you won't be disappointed. M600 Spitfire is the favorite main hand weapon here because it has a lot of bullets and deals tremendous amounts of damage if you land your shots (and you will). In case you can't find one, Prowler Burst is a good choice as well. The backup weapon will of course be a Mastiff or a Peacekeeper, depending on how lucky you are with loot.
The build strategy is mostly the same as the close ranged sniper one. Hop on that Grappling Hook zip line and shoot your enemies while you slide in the air. This works immensely well in map locations that feature tunnel-like spots and you'll win most of those fights because nobody expects it!

Damage Numbers

M600 Spitfire

  • Bodyshot: 20 damage
  • Headshot: 40 damage

Prowler Burst PDW

  • Bodyshot: 14 damage per bullet, 70 if you hit all the shots.
  • Headshot: 21 damage per bullet, 105 if you hit all the shots.

Pathfinder Gearing And Tips

  • Always pick up Armor pieces if you don't have any (Helmet/Body Armor) because it increases your survivability a lot, especially in the early game.
  • Avoid landing on places where everyone else lands-- Pathfinder works best when you utilize it's specialty, the ziplines.
  • Use your ultimate and coordinate with your allies to reach difficult places more easily because it'll have good loot in most cases.
  • Practice with snipers! A sniper gun is the Pathfinder's best friend.
