A recent leak for Apex Legends in Season 10 has presented the community with beautiful images of a rumored Tropical Island map that could release as early as next season.

Apex Legends has had a few interesting leaks over the past week thanks to the Evolution Collection Event update that introduced new code for dataminers to dig around and expose.

As well as a 3D model for Wattson’s Heirloom, leakers have also revealed further details about the rumored Tropical Island map that we could be seeing very soon, including the new Legend to go with it and some colorful images.

The rumor surrounding a Tropical Island map has been floating around for some time now, with dataminers suggesting it will be released in Season 11. At the time of this post, Respawn Entertainment hasn’t revealed anything about a new map, but as the source of these images is possibly from an “inside leak,” there is a high possibility of them being credible.

The last map that was introduced in Apex Legends was Olympus in Season 7 when the Legend Horizon was also released. Now, in Season 10, there is even a new teaser on Olympus hinting at the new map.

Reddit user DropoutCollective, also known as Thordon Smash, posted leaked images of the Tropical Island map on September 14 on the “ApexUncovered” subreddit.

Although there are only three images, each of them provides great details about what players can expect with this new map, from wildlife to the general terrain and theme of the map.

The first image actually gives us a great idea of the wildlife on this map, as a Prowler can be seen in the middle of the image, as well as a mud mound which Thordon Smash says is a Prowler nest.

Further, users in the comments are suspecting that the building on the right of the image looks like some sort of animal enclosure.

Perhaps this is where the Prowlers are being kept, potentially relocated here after the disturbance of World’s Edge which was teased in the most recent Evolution Collection Event trailer when Bloodhound finds bloody Prowler tracks.

Another leaked image shows an expansive sea and beachy coastline with palm trees, which is most likely the edge of the map.

One thing this image does confirm is that the map will be a tropical island surrounded by water. The image also shows off a storm in the skybox, which could be important for the map’s lore and story.

Further, we already know Tridents will be available on the map due to previous leaks of a muddy texture for the vehicle, and this would make sense considering Tridents could be the best form of travel over the water.

Lastly, the second image in the set of three shows off a portion of the map layout, which doesn’t give much away apart from that Water will play a huge role when it comes to breaking the map up.

It seems water will run through the map and play a consistent role within the landscape, perhaps being an inconvenience that players will have to get around.

That’s all the details we can gain from these leaked images of the new Tropical Island map. For more, be sure to check out our article on how to get modded weapons in Season 10.

Apex Legends player using mobile controller

Apex Legends Mobile is finally here, but some players still prefer to use a trusty controller over the touchscreen controls. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

After months of playtests, Apex Legends Mobile was finally released on Android and iOS on May 17, 2022. It features many of the same Legends and weapons as the main game, as well as the mobile-exclusive Fade, all on your mobile phone or tablet.

But even with its fully-fledged touchscreen controls, some players prefer having a controller in their hands when playing first-person shooters. Here’s everything we know about Apex Legends Mobile’s controller support.

Does Apex Legends Mobile have controller support?

Apex Legends Mobile does not have controller support at launch but the devs have confirmed that it’s on the way.

Speaking at a press event ahead of Apex Mobile’s launch, the developers said they understand that many prefer to use a controller over the touchscreen controls. “It is super important for us, we understand usability issues, and how much fun it is,” explained one of the devs.

They confirmed that controller support is in the works for Apex Legends Mobile but unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the game for launch.

When is controller support coming to Apex Legends Mobile?

While there’s no concrete timeframe, Apex Legends Mobile’s developers confirmed that controller support should come in the “very near future.”

They explained that “We’re actively exploring [controller support] but haven’t quite got it right.” When exactly it will arrive is anyone’s guess, but it should be here before the end of 2022.

Although there is no official support for it, players can actually pair their Bluetooth controller with their phone and use it. The controllers that are compatible and can pair with your mobile device include the following:

  • Xbox Series X/S controller
  • Xbox One controller
  • PlayStation DualSense controller
  • PlayStation 4 controller
  • Razer Kishi

Simply activate the pairing mode for the controller and find it on your mobile’s Bluetooth devices section. This will allow you to use the controller on Apex Mobile, but unfortunately, as there is no support for the feature, it can be buggy, especially when it comes to customizing your layout.

When controller support arrives, we’ll be breaking down how to use it and the best controller settings to dominate Apex Legends Mobile.

Apex Legends devs confirm fix for Xbox server crashing exploit in Season 13

The Apex Legends devs have officially fixed the Xbox server crashing exploit that was plaguing ranked games in Season 13.

apex legends storm point season 13

Apex Legends players will be happy to hear that the Xbox server crashing issue that has been ruining games, especially in ranked, has officially been fixed by the devs.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought massive changes to the ranked system, which pros even believe will make players much better at the game despite the adverse community reaction.

Unfortunately, players on consoles couldn’t enjoy the new system to the extent that they maybe wanted to due to a serious exploit plaguing the experience and causing servers to crash.

Luckily, it seems the devs have fixed the issue with a hotfix that went live on May 25.

In Apex Legends Season 13, Xbox players noticed that they were able to crash the server and prevent themselves from losing Ranked Points by doing so. This was ruining the experience for others, especially as Apex Legends is cross-platform.

While some believed this was a DDoS issue, the devs confirmed it was an exploit on Xbox and pushed a fix on May 18. Unfortunately, the fix didn’t work, and Xbox players were still able to crash servers and ruin matches for others.

This has been very damaging for players who have been trying to rank up and enjoy the brand new ranked changes, even turning people off from playing the game.

A Respawn dev let the community know that another hotfix went live on May 25 which seems to have fixed the issue caused by players on Xbox consoles.

So far, it seems like this fix has done the trick, as players have not been reporting the issue in the community.

Finally, players can enjoy the ranked grind without having to worry about the game crashing and wasting time in a match that could all end in nothing.

With that being said, you may want to check out the best landing spots on Storm Point, which is the ranked map for split 1 of Season 13.

An Apex Legends leaker has revealed potential plans for a Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus, which could be seen in Season 13.

Apex Legends Season 13 saw some new additions to Storm Point, including the Downed Beast and IMC Armories that both hold some impressive loot. Having said that, players are yet to see a new Town Takeover since Big Maude was introduced on World’s Edge.

As well as two new events set for this season, new leaks are suggesting that Lifeline will be getting a Town Takeover in Season 13, which could be based on Olympus.

Rumors surrounding a new Town Takeover for Apex Legends Season 13 are circulating the community, with some even believing it may coincide with the leaked Collection Event.

Some leakers thought we would be getting a Bangalore Town Takeover on Storm Point this season, but as we already got the Downed Beast and the IMC Armories, it actually may be more likely that we will be seeing a new Town Takeover for a different map and Legend.

Reputable Apex Legends leaker Thordan Smash stated in a recent video that he now believes that we may see a Lifeline Town Takeover for Olympus in Season 13, stating that the Bangalore Town Takeover has potentially been “scrapped.”

Further, new quips were leaked from the game files mentioning a “Med Station,” and Lifeline has more quips mentioning this new concept than any other Legend. This suggests it may be specific to her, perhaps the Med Station is actually the name of her Town Takeover POI.

Apex Legends leaker Ezra-RC also leaked a version of Olympus that is code-named “LTT” in the files. Many believe this could stand for Lifeline Town Takeover, however, nothing is confirmed as of yet, and the map is just the Season 12 version of Olympus.

As more information is released we’ll be sure to update this piece and provide all the information.
