When it comes to first-person shooters, Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek’s gaming skill set is unmatched. We all have seen him dominate in whichever shooter is thrown at him. However, when it comes to which battle royale Shroud thinks is the best, it is Apex Legends.

The veteran streamer spent a lot of time streaming Apex regularly when it launched in 2019. Eventually, he moved onto newer titles as he is someone who streams a variety of games. But, with each new season, Shroud still revisits Respawn’s BR to check out the changes.

Earlier this week, the Twitch star streamed the game for a while. And with the Aftermarket event going live recently, Shroud made a proper return to Apex, streaming the game for more than 5 hours.

Shroud says Apex is still the best BR, regardless of their speed of content

During his October 8 Twitch stream, the former CS: GO pro praised Apex Legends as the best battle royale in the market. A viewer asked Shroud if he enjoys grinding Apex when he comes back to the game.

Shroud responded, “Yeah, absolutely. Apex is, by far, still the best BR“.

Although he praised the game, he went on to mention a slight drawback. Regardless of that, Apex is still the best BR, according to the Twitch star.

Even though they are slow devs, well, I don’t want to ruin their work or anything. But people expect updates faster, and they don’t deliver it that quickly. My point is Apex is still the best BR, regardless of their speed of content.

Shroud’s appraisal of Apex gained traction on Twitter. Not surprising, as when he talks people like to listen.

Unfortunately, some accused the Twitch star of being paid to praise Apex. Later, the man himself responded to the baseless accusations through a tweet. Moreover, he clarified the misinformation on his Twitch stream as well.

During an October 9 stream, Shroud said, “It’s just me saying I love Apex, and I think its the best BR. And then people think as I’m not playing it every day, what I say is false, and I’m being paid to play it and say that.
