The Apex Legends Season 11 gameplay trailer has revealed the first official in-game look at the brand new map, Legend, and weapon, which all looks amazing.
Apex Legends‘ players have been anticipating Season 11 ever since news broke about there being a new tropical-themed map filled with wildlife. As many will know, Respawn has given players three maps to battle it out on, which is great for keeping the battle royale fresh and fun.
Now, with the brand new Apex Legends Season 11 gameplay trailer, players have finally been given an in-game look at what Storm Point has to offer, as well as the new Legend Ash and the C.A.R SMG.
Here are all the details you need to know about the Apex Legends Season 11 gameplay reveal.
New map: Storm Point
“It may look like paradise, but danger lies within: wild prowlers and venomous spiders roam, and storms gather overhead. Now the Legends are here to make this place their own.”
Located on the planet Gaea, Storm Point is a long-forgotten IMC research base and is now home to the Apex Games. It’s our largest map to date, about 15% bigger than World’s Edge, our previous map-size record holder.
It features a wide variety of diverse locations, from tropical island hopping to giant mountain slides that allow you to play higher than previous maps. There is a lot to see and a lot to talk about, so let’s dive in.
Nearly all the redeploy balloons are gone. In their place are the Gravity Cannons and they’re an excellent method to outrun the ring. Step inside of one and it will launch you in a pre-determined direction.
While traveling through the air, you have pitch control and can land to the sides of the receiving points of the Gravity Cannon to avoid traps and other dangers. You also have complete control of your weapons, grenades, tactical abilities, and ultimates when traveling through the air.
Into the Wilds
On Storm Point, players will be dropping into a world that is teeming with dangerous wildlife. Wildlife Nests are exciting new combat encounters that offer strategic looting options for squads as they plan their paths through to the mid-stages of a match!
Prowlers are aggressive creatures that hunt in packs and can be found patrolling their Prowler Dens across Storm Point. If they spot you, they’ll be sure to warn you that you’re getting too close and aren’t too friendly to uninvited guests. Keeping your distance leaves the option to engage in your hands. Watch out though, if you choose to engage, more will emerge from the Prowler Dens to defend their territory.
Prowlers aren’t the only things living on Storm Point. Spider eggs are scattered across the map. Causing damage to these eggs will disturb the spiders inside, hatching a swarm of critters that will happily have you for lunch.

These large arachnids are ranged, web-spitting enemies that choose to engage with their potential meals from afar before sinking their teeth into them. While squishier than prowlers, these enemies are quick and scurry around to reposition themselves frequently.
Look to the sky to reap the rewards carried by Flyers found soaring or preached high above. Flyers are spawned individually across the map and their positions are randomly selected from a predetermined list of possible spawn locations each match.
Rules and trophies of the hunt
Wildlife Nests are denoted by the red markers on your minimap. All nests are static and finite, meaning every match they are always in the same place, with the same type of wildlife and only small variations in their numbers. Wildlife respects their Nests’ boundaries and are aggressive only to trespassers that enter into their domain. Once a Wildlife Nest is cleared, it is removed from the map and your squad can reap the rewards.
Now a bit more on the types of rewards you’ll gain from battling the fauna of Storm Point:
- Smart Loot Drops: On death, Prowlers and Spiders have a chance to drop attachments and ammo for your squad based on your weapon loadouts, in addition to a few consumables and other goodies.
- EVO Points: A small percentage of all damage dealt to wildlife is rewarded towards your EVO Armor. This includes Flyers
- Crafting Materials: Clearing a Nest rewards a lump of crafting materials which are divided evenly among each squad member in the nest at time of completion.
Points of interest
Let’s look at some of the larger drop locations: the Barometer, the heart of Storm Point. A spinning platform with a honeypot of loot is overlooked by a research tower that gives a height advantage but is challenging to defend against attackers.
Built inside of the mountain, the Command Center is a massive complex that’s rich in loot and which allows players to dive into its heart from the dropship. It is also an excellent method for getting to the top of the mountain while protected by using a network of the longest ziplines in the Apex Games to date.
The Antenna is a drop location divided by a network of catwalks positioned above a massive communications dish. Make your way across these catwalks or slide to the bottom of the Antenna to zipline your way up to the center.
Lightning Rod is a landing position located at the pinnacle of the mountain and is divided into two halves by a focused and intense bridge. The station’s top is the highest position on the map and is a crucial stronghold if the ring ends there.
Suspended over a large area, Storm Catcher is an interior location with a focus on close-quarter combat. Position yourself on its exterior balconies to open up long-range combat against strong, defendable bases on either of its sides.
The North Pad is a launch site that contains a network of protected trenches that allow safe passage over a wide range of rolling hills. Separating these trenches are underground bunkers and small watchpoints with loot.
The remnants of the original survivors of Storm Point, Shipfall, is all that remains of the doomed vessel. Eroded over decades, the engine section is still intact and is a stronghold if you can fight your way through it.
A secure network of coral reef caves, the Cenote is the most isolated section of the map and is filled with valuable loot and power positions. Located at the southernmost western corner, it is also a critical path between the Barometer and the entire western half of the island.
Highpoint is the home to the only redeploy balloon on the map, sits at the top of the longest hill, and is a vital chokepoint to the top of the mountain. In a standoff look around, you may discover hidden tunnels that allow you to flake around it.
A gateway to the top of the mountain, its interior is a tightly focused close-quarter combat area with a Gravity Cannon that allows for quick access from the bottom of the mountain and a quick escape, if needed.
A dense cluster of buildings placed near the waterfall, Cascade Falls acts as a focal point of the map due to its proximity to the map’s center, making it the most traveled point of interest. Take that into account before deciding the land there on the initial drop.
The Launch Site sits in an alcove at the river’s end and is a large area identified by two distinct landing zones: the outstretched landing pad and the control building. Try landing on one of its three distinctive outstretched pads and loot your way towards the control building.
A chain of islands separated by open water, the Fish Farms is a large area with a clean separation between the lootable buildings. Cross the open water cautiously, or use the Trident to hover along the waterways.
A sibling landing location to the Fish Farms, Gale Station acts as a divider between the island’s center and the southern section. What it lacks in loot quantity makes up for loot quality and its power position over the Fish Farms.
Spill-off Camps: Design talk
There are 17 named locations total on the map, but if you pay close attention, you will notice near these drop locations, there are smaller camps. When you’re dropping at the start of a match and see a drop location overwhelmed with other players, look around. You may notice a smaller camp nearby with great loot.
There are many more locations to discover, all with unique and diverse gameplay styles designed for the competitive and casual player. Storm Point is the sum of two years of design work and a close study of how Apex Legends plays in public. There are hundreds of micro-decisions built into the map to address bad third-party encounters, optimal loot flow, and combat engagement for a better gameplay experience.
New Season 11 Legend: Ash
The gameplay trailer gave players a great look at what to expect from Ash, including a look at how her abilities will work in-game.
Ash seems like she fits the aggressive playstyle of a hunter, tracking down one enemy, then finding others through scanning their death box. Further, she can move fast and traverse areas with her Ultimate ability, which allows her to teleport to the desired location.
This means Ash will be great at hunting enemies down and moving fast and effectively, as well as being able to slow enemies with her Arc Snare Tactical Ability.
- Tactical Ability: Arc Snare
- Passive Ability: Marked For Death
- Ultimate Ability: Phase Breach
For more details on her abilities, check out our post on Ash’s Legend Kit.
Along with a new gameplay trailer showing off the new Legend Ash’s abilities, we also got a biography for the Legend in a brand new blog that details some lore and background information.

Just like every Legend, Ash also has her very own title: “Incisive Instigator.”
“See your imperfections in your enemies — then crush them.”
- Real Name: Dr. Ashleigh Reid
- Age: 121
- Home World: Unknown
The C.A.R SMG was also revealed, and it seems like the weapon will be able to take both Heavy and Light ammo. The exact differences between the two have not been confirmed, but by the trailer, it seems pretty minimal.
The weapon looks like it is going to be fairly easy to control as well, especially from hip-fire, as it is shown to be very accurate mid-air during the trailer.
There you have it, from beachy coves to muddy mountains full of foliage, Storm Point is set to give players a brand new map experience unlike any of the settings we’ve previously seen in Apex Legends.

Apex Legends TikTok trick reveals hidden supply bin on Storm Point
The latest Apex Legends map, Storm Point, has a lot of secrets to uncover. A new TikTok trick shows players how to find a hidden supply bin.
An Apex Legends player has found a secret supply bin that only Loba can loot. The trick comes from a TikTok video with the exact location of the hidden bin on Storm Point.
Apex Legends Season 11 has a lot of content for players to delve into. Not only is there a new Legend to master, but there’s also a brand new map filled with detail. Storm Point is the largest Apex map of them all, and it definitely holds some secrets.
Storm Point has a lot of great POIs and un-named locations for loot and players have now found a hidden supply bin. Thanks to a viral Apex Legends TikTok video, we have all the information.
Apex Legends TikTok hidden supply bin
The video was posted by an Apex Legends TikTok user called rossbobsquirrel. In the video, they showcase this hidden supply bin on Storm Point, showing off its location and the only Legend who can access it.
This Legend is Loba, the Translocating Theif. The supply bin is actually hidden inside an oil rig barrel within the bunkers of the North Pad POI. There is no way to open it without using the Black Market Ultimate, as the interact prompt doesn’t show up.
The supply bin is tucked underneath the oil rig asset, restricting access to it. As Loba’s Ultimate allows her to loot anything within the Black Market’s vicinity, she, and anyone who is able to use the Ultimate, can access it.
Unfortunately, there isn’t anything crazy in this supply bin. There’s no gold item or guaranteed high rarity drop.
Having said that, it’s still pretty cool that there’s a hidden supply bin only Loba’s Ultimate can access. You never know, it could have exactly what you need in there.
Of course, a map this big will have its issues, but the devs are working on improvements. If you’re looking to see this hidden supply bin for yourself, make sure you do it soon as it may be patched up pretty quickly.

Apex Legends Anniversary event: Release date, skins, & more
Apex Legends is nearing its third anniversary, and Respawn usually like to celebrate in style. Here’s everything there is to know.
Respawn love to celebrate the Apex Legends anniversary with an event. The game is coming up to its third birthday and for those interested in the date, here’s when Apex Legends’ anniversary is.
With that being said, players are always hungry for new content. With how special the Season 8 Anniversary event was for 2021, it’s only right that fans are intrigued about the next one.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event.
When is Apex Legends’ Anniversary?
Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale was released on February 4, 2019, making this date its anniversary every year since its launch. In celebration, players typically get an in-game event to mark the date.
The Apex Legends Anniversary events usually drop around this date, meaning the third-anniversary event can be expected in early February. As Respawn usually drop updates on Tuesdays, perhaps February 1 or 8 marks the date.

As Season 11 is expected to end around February 8, this anniversary event could either be dropping in Season 11 or 12. We’ll update this as more information is released so stay tuned for the official date.
What to expect for Apex Legends’ Anniversary event
In the previous Anniversary event, players were blessed with a whole Collection Event and Reward Tracker. As we already know that Season 11’s Collection Event won’t be Anniversary-themed, we can expect the 2022 Anniversary event to be something more simple.
Apex Legends dataminer GarretLeaks believes it could be similar to the Monster’s Within event, which was called a Thematic Event. This also included a Reward Tracker.
According to the dataminer’s recent video, the Anniversary will bring new skins for players – possibly recolors. Garret even suggests that an LTM could arrive along with it.
That’s all we currently know about the third Apex Legends Anniversary event. As more news is released, we’ll be updating this article so make sure you stay tuned.

Apex Legends Wraith and Ash combo bug makes them untouchable
Apex Legends players have discovered a Wraith and Ash combo bug that makes the duo virtually untouchable in combat.
Wraith and Ash are extremely powerful characters, and a few Apex Legends players have found a combo bug that lets them escape easily, effectively making them untouchable.
If you want to be able to change your positioning easily then it’s useful to keep these two on your team. Now, a few players have discovered a strange combo bug that makes them untouchable.
Reddit user ‘UnholyBeast’ highlighted this combo bug in the Apex Legends subreddit. It involves Ash’s ultimate ability Phase Breach that lets her travel across the map through a portal.

If you use Wraith’s tactical ability Into the Void while taking an Ash portal, the tactical’s cooldown will no longer matter, as you’ll be able to use it again right away. So you can change your position and avoid all damage.
This combo is quite clever but it clearly gives certain players and teams an unfair advantage since they can become untouchable while doing this. So, this bug can be considered game-breaking.
This didn’t escape the attention of the developers, as Respawn’s Live Technical Director ‘Exgeniar’ responded to the bug in the same post. After apologizing, they stated that “bugs are meant to be fixed.”

Based on these comments, it seems that the developers will be investigating this issue and will probably patch it up in a future update. Until then, this combo will make Wraith and Ash a strong duo.
