Apex Legends has entered Season 11. Despite recent server issues, the new update shows why the battle royale has become so popular since its release.

Apex Legends Season 11 is a very ambitious update by Respawn Entertainment, especially considering the recent server issues.

That being said, Season 11 has been a breath of fresh air. With an extremely smooth launch and delightful new content, the new season proves that there is indeed beauty within the storm.

Apex Legends Season 11: Escape has officially landed, introducing loads of new content for players to enjoy. As well as a brand new map Storm Point, players have been getting to grips with the new Legend Ash and the C.A.R SMG.

Now that we’ve had some time to play and take the update in, we’ve rounded up our thoughts on Season 11.

Apex Legends Season 11 review

A smooth launch

Apex Legends players had been experiencing some serious server issues throughout Season 10. These issues prevented many from enjoying their experience. Respawn promised to help prevent these issues in the future, and with Season 11’s launch, it seems it is definitely doing so.

Season 11’s launch was surprisingly smooth considering the amount of content that Respawn introduced and the persistent server issues of Season 10. Players were able to jump in and play as soon as the season was released. It’s almost as if Season 11 weathered the storm, which leads nicely onto our next point.

Off to the tropics

Let’s talk about the biggest piece of content that was introduced in the Season 11 update, Storm Point.

Storm Point is the latest addition to the map roster in Apex Legends, allowing players to battle it out on a tropical island.

Of course, like every map in Apex, Storm Point is gorgeous. It is a very colorful map with diverse terrain throughout.

Storm Point comes in as Apex’s biggest map. Although some may think this would make it harder to find enemies, it actually paces the matches very well.

Respawn designed the map to prevent third parties, and you can really tell a lot of effort went into accomplishing this goal. The POIs are spread out nicely and the removal of Jump Towers and the introduction of Gravity Cannons definitely helps prevent teams dropping in to clean up fights.

Another great addition to the Legend roster

Ash was rumored to be coming to the game for some time, and with Season 11, we’re definitely happy to see her join the fight.

If you love Titanfall, you’ll absolutely love this Legend, as everything about Ash is oozing with lore. From Banner Frames to her ability kit, you can really see how much Titanfall continues to inspire the content in Apex Legends.

Ash’s abilities are definitely on the stronger side of things, but nothing like Seer’s launch state in the previous season. Ash feels great offensively, and while her Passive may be slightly too strong, her Tactical and Ultimate take precision and skill.

Ash isn’t easy to pick up and start dominating. You will need to think and coordinate with your team to use her abilities effectively. Therefore, we feel Ash has launched in a fairly balanced state. Although her kit is powerful, players will really need to master the character to unlock her full potential.

Shifting the meta

Lastly, let’s talk about the C.A.R SMG, the latest weapon to enter Apex Legends. The C.A.R SMG has no doubt shaken up the meta in Season 11, as it boasts a higher DPS than the R-99.

The weapon is most dominant up close, as its recoil is pretty outrageous. However, The C.A.R’s hip-fire is one of the most accurate in the game. The weapon is also has an added layer of versatility thanks to the option to have Heavy/Light magazines and ammo.

Taking all this into account, the C.A.R SMG will most likely be getting a nerf soon, as it doesn’t have many negatives. However, players shouldn’t be raging about the C.A.R like when the Bocek Bow was released. The weapon is very powerful, but it doesn’t feel “over-powered.”

Perhaps Respawn needs to make small tweaks to put it back in line with the rest of the SMGs. Once this is done, we’ll have another balanced SMG option in the game that rivals the R-99.

Beauty in the storm

Overall, Season 11 has been a delightful update for players so far, especially since new maps don’t come around too often. Storm Point is incredible, giving players a vast new map to learn and explore, while Ash and the C.A.R are also strong additions to the game.

Further, the buffs and nerfs introduced have put the game in a great balance, and the changes to Ranked Leagues are in a positive direction. Despite the Battle Pass being slightly underwhelming this time around, the server issues seem to be under control and small quality-of-life changes to the game have been well received.

Verdict: 9/10

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.

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.

Apex Legends is known for having great content updates and communication with the community. Not only has Season 11 brought more server stability, but it also introduced a great new map and Legend.

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 in Apex Legends

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.

There are several powerful characters to choose from in Apex Legends, and all of them have some amazing abilities. Wraith and Ash are Legends that are capable of opening portals in battle.

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.

Ash in Apex Legends

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.
