What does it mean when you are selected as the Jumpmaster?

At the start of each game of Apex Legends, one player in each squad will be selected as the Jumpmaster. If this is you, it means you’ll be tasked with guiding your squad from the dropship to the island of King’s Canyon. You’ll have direct control over when and how that happens. You lead the way and the rest of your squad will follow.

If you aren’t selected as the Jumpmaster, don’t fret. You can always split off from the rest of your squad by following the on-screen prompts. That said, if you’re new to the game, we don’t recommend it.

Every squad in Apex Legends is significantly more effective when they’re able to work together. If you land too far away from your teammates they might not be able to help you if you get into trouble.
