Summary

When hitboxes are off in anyway, it can lead to some pretty wonky gameplay effects — imagine if you were fighting Ryu in Street Fighter V and he grunted with pain when a kick connected with the air six inches in front of his face (this actually happened once and I lost the match for laughing too hard).In Apex, each of the eight playable characters has a different hitbox, with some having much more shoot-able real estate than others. This means that Wraith will be much harder to hit than Gibraltar — and considering everyone has the same starting health, why would you ever want to pick the latter?If I had to point to a culprit, it’d be Apex‘s roots. On the one hand, every character has distinct abilities and personality, but on the other, every character starts out with the same amount of health, acquiring armor on the battlefield through luck.Credit: YouTube/SookieSpyWhile it sounds better in theory that slippery rogue Wraith should have a smaller hitbox than the muscular Gibraltar, in reality the two should be on a more even playing field.
