Apex R5 Reloaded is basically here to stay. So assuming you are wondering how to download and install it, then read on as we unravel everything

Fortnite took the gaming world by storm. The game which spawned in 2017 registered over 350 million users in less than two years and reached a peak of almost 15 million concurrent players. Now in a bit to compete with what is already popular, Apex Legends spawned, but it lacks one major element included in Epic Games’ most successful title.

Literally speaking, the idea of building in Fortnite adds a unique touch to the battle royale genre and Apex Legends albeit fun is sadly incomplete without this feature. This is where R5 Reloaded comes in to play, incorporating a key concept from Epic Games’ Fortnite.

What is R5 Reloaded?

You all know the goal of Apex Legends is to emerge the last man standing. Its gameplay begins with players soaring over a large map aboard a drop ship and once they’ve chosen a landing location, the mission from there will be to grab loot (weapons, armor, etc.) and combat enemy squad.

Whilst this is overly interesting, R5 Reloaded generously completes the game by offering the ability to construct structures and do just about anything you want. Now you’d wonder what it is.


For the uninformed, R5 Reloaded is simply the modded version of Apex Legends which allows users to play on private servers with their own set of rules. The mod client literally allows users to mod weapons abilities and tweak almost every single aspect of the game including Movement values and then host Lobbies with them.

Utilizing R5 Reloaded guarantee stuff such as longer grapple, stronger slide, faster stim and more. So assuming you are already itching to get your hands on the mod, then here is how to download and install R5 Reloaded.
