Is Apex Legends split screen? Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royale titles out right now, making it a large target of criticism when fans feel that the quality of the game is not as high as it could be.
Since Apex’s release, fans of the game have been clamoring for the ability to play split screen, offline games with their friends. Developers have not listened though, and have not added a split screen option for Apex Legends players.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to play split screen on Apex Legends. It is an online-only multiplayer game, meaning that players can only play together online on separate consoles or PCs.
Apex Legends is not alone as a popular game without the ability to play split screen, as Fortnite and Overwatch also follow this model. Playing Special Ops mode on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the few modes that allows for split screen play among popular games.
Developers at Respawn Entertainment are not keeping split screen play out of Apex Legends just to make fans upset, though. Because Apex is such a graphics-reliant game, playing split screen would probably cause serious lags and ruin the gameplay experience.
Apex Legends Season 5 started recently, following the adventures of Loba, the heroic adventurer. Check out our Apex Legends Season 5 weapon tier list, our Apex Legends Season 5 legends tier list, and the new Apex Legends leaked skins for Season 5.
