When you knock down and kill the enemy it's pretty obvious, but there are a few scenarios I don't know and I will exemplify them with 4 teams Alpha, Bravo, Yankee and Zulu. Alpha_N denotes player N from team Alpha

Going on Yankee

  • Alpha_1 knocks down Yankee_1
  • Bravo_2 kills the knocked down Yankee_1
  • Bravo_3 knocks down Yankee_3
  • Yankee_3 is not revived / he quits

Going on Zulu

  • Bravo_1 knocks down Zulu_1
  • Alpha_2 knocks down Zulu_2
  • Alpha_3 knocks down Zulu_3 and at this point the Zulu team is eliminated (no self revive available), all Zulu players die.

Who gets what kill here?


On Apex Legends, the player who knocks down others get kills, but only if knocked down ones are not revived and die successfully, and do not quit the game before that.


  • Alpha_1 gets one kill with Yankee_1.
  • Alpha_2 gets one kill with Zulu_2.
  • Alpha_3 gets one kill with Zulu_3.
  • Bravo_1 gets one kill with Zulu_1.
  • Bravo_3 do not get any kill, even for knocking down Yankee_3. (I feel sorry for him.)
  • but Bravo_3 would get the kill if Yankee_3 would bleed out and die, correct?

  • Whops, yeah, Bravo_1 gets the kill, not Alpha_1. I'll correct that thanks. And for your second comment, yep, that's it.

  • I thought the one who actually kills the knock down enemies gets the kill. But this way is fair indeed.

  • That's what I thought at beginning too, but I prefer this way (even if it could not seem the more logical). (And don't forget to accept my answer if you think it is ok for you!)

  • Pretty sure this isn't quite correct. I knocked down many enemies which have then been killed by other players and I didn't get any kill for them Mar 6 '19 at 8:02
