Apex Legends World's Edge Guide (Season 3)

Apex Legends World’s Edge Guide (Season 3)

World’s Edge is the second map in the Apex Legends universe and is located on the planet of Talos. All of our favorite Apex Legends will be making their way to this location from the game’s first area of King’s Canyon on Planet Solace. 

 

The new map contains various climates that have resulted in there being a wide range of different environments available for players to explore in their battles. According to the official description of this arena, World’s Edge is where “molten heat and chemical ice collide.” 

 

Main points:

 

  World’s Edge Named Locations: 15 / Kings Canyon Named Locations: 17

  Biggest Location: Capitol City

  Smallest Location: Overlook

  Northernmost Location: Refinery

  Southernmost Location: The Dome

  Easternmost Location: Overlook

  Westernmost Location: Lava Fissure

 

What’s New?

 

– The new Apex Legends map is actually larger than Kings Canyon, about twice the size! This was a well-needed change to lessen the number of 3rd party encounters. You will also spend more time traveling between areas in the open-world, which could result in more sniping encounters (Thank god for the Charge Rifle).

 

– The map focuses more on vertical areas rather than horizontal areas. You’ll find quite a few buildings with multiple floors.

 

– A train has replaced the supply ship. It travels around the map, and you can board it to grab some loot or get from place to place.

 

– A new feature called Vaults has been added. Three vaults are placed around the map that require Vault keys to unlock and feature high and legendary tier loot.

 

– There are no more flyers, but rather spheres that change colors. You can destroy them at the moment the sphere is a particular color to collect loot of that color. 

 

Skyhook 

 

– Size: Medium

– Popularity: High

– Supply Bins: 26

 

Skyhook can be found at the northern edge of the map and is one of the more popular places to drop. There’s plenty of loot to go around for several squads both at Skyhook itself (the big tower) and in the buildings surrounding Skyhook. Once you’ve finished looting Skyhook, it’s generally a good idea to avoid Epicenter and instead go south to the Drill Site and Train Yard, respectively. One of the good things about dropping at Skyhook (or any other place at the edge of the map) is that if you manage to survive the first five minutes and gear up, you’re in a good position, as players won’t be behind you.

 

The Dome

 

– Size: Large

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 22

 

The spot is at the right bottom of the map. It includes several areas that collectively form quite a large POI. It contains 22 supply bins, which while a lot are quite spread out. This makes it an okay choice for scavenging, but it’s going to take some time. If you land here, you need to be on the lookout for other squads. You’ll have to move fast to loot up in time, so staying aware is vital.

 

Refinery 

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 25

 

Refinery is one of my favorite places to drop on the new map. There are only a few buildings here, but each building has a ton of loot. Whereas other areas make you go in and out of several buildings in search of loot, The amount of gear you can loot prepares you for your push into the Epicenter. Since the Epicenter is comprised of a lot of buildings, by the time you push in, you should have better gear than your enemies.

 

The Epicenter 

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 15

 

The Epicenter can be a great place to drop. It’s not overly crowded, and there’s usually plenty of loot there to kit out your squad; however, the downside is it’s sandwiched between Refinery and Capitol City. Capitol City isn’t an issue as you’ll have the high ground over the players there, and from Capitol City, you can head South rather than North, so the chance of being third partied is slim. 

 

Drill Site

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Low

– Supply Bins: 13

 

This is one of the smallest POIs on World’s Edge. It features only 13 Supply Bins and not many buildings. While it’s still a better place to land than the middle of nowhere, you’re not going to find as much loot. The benefit is that you’re unlikely to find other squads in this spot. If you’re after a quiet start to the game, this might be the perfect place on World’s Edge to do so.

 

Overlook 

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 19

 

Overlook contains quite a bit of gear when you take into account the extra building next to the train track, it’s also out of the way, so it’s usually pretty quiet. One downside of it being so far away from other locations is that by the time you’re ready to move on to the other nearby areas. Keep in mind that Capitol City, Epicenter, and Refinery will have already been looted. However, if you manage to wipe a squad in one of those locations, you’ll be geared up.

 

Lava Fissure 

 

– Size: Large

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 29

 

Lava Fissure is a huge area in World’s Edge. With 29 supply bins, you’re going to be able to kit out a full squad. This comes with fighting off other players, but it’s manageable. You’re unlikely to get pinned down in Lava Fissure since it’s quite spread out. As a sprawling larger location, you’re going to have to be careful of over squads picking you off as you loot.

 

Capitol City 

 

– Size: Large

– Popularity: High

– Supply Bins: 19

 

Capitol City is a mixed bag, and sometimes you might drop here and get the loot you want, and sometimes there’s sweet FA. In my opinion, there are much better places to drop. However, Capitol City is one of the most popular drop locations, so if you like getting into a firefight or two, it’s probably one of the best places to drop, but be warned — if you a rookie, the game will end pretty quickly for you.

 

The Train Yard 

 

– Size: Medium

– Popularity: Low

– Supply Bins: 26

 

The Train Yard has a dense supply of loot for its relatively modest size, with 26 supply bins ready to be looted. While the loot isn’t always the best quality, it’s a solid place for a relatively safe and secure start. If you’re after a good place to prepare for a game, then this is an excellent spot to hit.

 

Fuel Depot 

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 12

 

Another pretty cordoned off location of the map. If you land right here, you might find yourself out of position, depending upon the first ring location. It has sufficient loot to get you started, and it’s sufficiently small, so it won’t take a long time to loot up. 

 

The Geyser 

 

– Size: Medium

– Popularity: Medium

– Supply Bins: 17

 

A supremely enjoyable and beautiful location of World’s Edge, The Geyser is, of course, dominated by the central and endlessly-spouting Geyser, which acts like a Balloon to propel you quickly into the air so you can land somewhere else. As such, it’s relatively easy and quick to move on from this fringe location, which you’ll need to do as the loot here is rather poor (your best bet is to head northward as quickly as possible).

 

Thermal Station

 

– Size: Large

– Popularity: High

– Supply Bins: 48

 

Thermal Station is massive and can easily kit out a few squads. If you see other squads dropping here, simply move to a different part of the Thermal Station (the outside has plenty of loot too, so you don’t need to drop right in the middle). However, because of the abundance of high-value loot here, it’s a busy place to drop. It’s almost inevitable that you’re going to get into a firefight. Make sure you get a weapon quickly (drop by doors and supply bins) and stick with your squad. If you manage to take out another squad early on, you should have enough gear to clean up (depending on skill level) or at least move on to a quieter location if you’d rather not risk another fight.

 

Sorting Factory 

 

– Size: Large

– Popularity: High

– Supply Bins: 44

 

This is a fun one. It’s one of the POIs in the game that is just a lot more interesting than Season 2. The Sorting Factory has 44 Supply Bins scattered around it, but it’s really dense. It might be a bit less popular than Capitol City, but the area isn’t quite as spread out. There isn’t as much cover.

 

Lava City 

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Low

– Supply Bins: 15

 

The loot isn’t that incredible. Lava City is a bit out of the way, forcing you to move into the way more action-packed Sorting Factory. But, identical to The Epicenter and Capitol City, Lava City is a wonderful place to begin. You might want to try to third party a couple of squads near the Sorting Factory. Once you clear up that mess, you’ll virtually be kitted out for the remainder of the game.

 

The Tree

 

– Size: Small

– Popularity: Low

– Supply Bins: 13

 

This is another smaller and more peaceful landing spot. It’s high enough to give you a good enough view of the more popular places. This can make it a great starting point when you’re after more thought-out kills than just landing somewhere popular. There are 13 supply bins here, enough for a squad if you’re lucky. However, you will likely have to pick up some better gear throughout the game if you start here.

 

World’s Edge Tips & Tricks:

 

– When shooting at the loot sphere (egg), aim for the drone carrying it and try to use a heavy weapon or a sniper to one-shot it for the color you want. If you hit the egg, it has more HP, and it may not break. Heads up! Don’t stand directly under it while shooting. 

– Be careful not to stand in front of the train as it can kill you.

– Vault keys drop from Legendary eggs. They’re not that rare. You will see which Vaults have been opened and which have not on your map. But if you go for a locked one, be careful as squads like to camp near them.

– Snipers are a great choice on this map. Remember, the map is larger with more open areas.
