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?

1 Answer 1


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, 2019 at 8:02
