Apex Legends: Map Guide

4 months ago

So you heard that a game was downloaded 25 million times in its first week. It must be good right? You download it. Looks cool. You click around a bit. Check out the legends, the armory, and the store. You go through the training. Run. Slide. Shoot. Throw. Got it. Let’s go!

 

You start the game and blindly select your Legend. Or, you may already know the Legend you want based on your previous clicking around. Game loading. Game loading. What’s taking so long? Game loading. Boom.

 

The game has started. And even though you are afraid of heights, you find yourself flying high above some sort of island. Wait. What? You’re jumpmaster? When do you jump? Where do you go? Not only do you have to choose when and where to go, but you also have to take two other lives with you. You definitely aren’t ready for such responsibility. At least not yet.

 

Worry not. We are going to breakdown the Apex Legends map for you. So you know where to go, what to expect, and no longer have to feel guilty about being responsible for the deaths of two complete strangers. R.I.P.

 

Colors and Tiers

 

The first thing you need to know is that you don’t start the game with anything: no guns, armor, grenades, etc. All of these things must be found. This process is referred to as “looting.” Now, this article isn’t about weapons or armor but, as we will be talking about the best places on the map to find them, it would be useful to go over them just a bit. There is a color ranking system you need to understand. They are as follows:

 

– White — Level 1
– Blue — Level 2
– Purple — Level 3
– Gold — Level 4

 

*The higher the level, the stronger the weapon and armor.

 

Along with the color ranking system, there is a tier ranking system. It is as follows:


– Not stated — Not much loot
– Mid-Tier — Good loot
– High-Tier — Great loot

 

You can tell which tier you are in when you enter a new location. It will be stated, or not stated, under the name of the area. Keep in mind that the tier locations are placed randomly at different map locations. So if Skull Town has mid-tier loot one game, it might not have mid-tier loot the next game.

Now that you understand the basics of the color and tier system. Let’s jump into the map. Or should we say onto the map? Here is a quick overview of what the map looks like in 2d with several locations marked.

 

locations mark apex legends

 

As stated earlier, mid and high-tier locations change from game to game. However, there are two locations that will always have some pretty solid loot.

 

Hot Zones and Supply Ship

 

The Hot Zone, a zone that will always have high-tier loot, is marked by a blue circle on your mini-map, as seen in the picture above. The Supply Ship will be marked by a ship icon on your mini-map. As these two locations will always have great loot, they are likely places to find immediate action. If you’re reading this, you probably aren’t ready for those places yet.

 

Map Locations

 

There are 17 different marked map locations. In actuality, there are far more places on the map. However, for simplicity, we’re only going to go over the marked locations.

 

Airbase:

 

airbase map apex legends

 

Loot can be found in the interiors of two small aircrafts and several small buildings. The Airbase has a large parameter wall that can serve as protection, that is unless your opponents are on the same side as you.

 

Good things about this location:
– Decent amount of loot
– Has a respawn point

 

Bad things about this location:
– Don’t use the zipline between runways
– Enemies can get the high ground on you

 

Artillery:

 

artillery map apex legends

 

One of the most action-packed zones in Apex Legends. Why? Well, the name. Most people assume a location called Artillery is going to have the best loot. However, that might not always be the case. Artillery consists of six large buildings and three smaller buildings. Deaths usually occur at close to mid-range, with most of the killers being positioned on roofs. Be sure to look up if getting shot at.

 

Good things about this location:
– Contains lots of supply bins
– Close to a respawn point

 

Bad thing about this location:
– Isolated and usually far from the ring

 

Bridges:

 

bridges map apex legends

 

Bridges has two large buildings connected by a, you guessed it, bridge. There are also four smaller buildings.

 

Good thing about this location:
– Great for shooting players who run along the lagoon area

 

Bad thing about this location:
– The closest respawn point happens to be the deadliest respawn point in the game 

 

Bunker:

There are tons of rooms and supply bins, making the Bunker a deadly and crowded place. Never travel there after the drop. Everything will be gone by the time you get there.

Cascades:

Cascades has buildings similar to Bridges, however, the surrounding area is a bit more elevated. We don’t recommend landing here.

Bad thing about this location:

Hydro Dam:

Good thing about this location:
– Loot can always be found in the buildings

 

Bad thing about this location:
– Spending too much time at the Hydro Dam is a quick way to start a new game, watch out above

 

Market:

The Market usually has a lot of loot packed into a small space. Get in and get out.

– Lots of loot. Great if you stay off the market floor

 

Bad thing about this location:
