Respawn Entertainment officially revealed gameplay for their new Apex Legends Storm Point map arriving in Season 11, here’s every single POI the map will contain.

The Apex Legends devs and players alike are now gearing up for Season 11‘s release, which looks to bring a bunch of new content to keep the battle royale fresh and exciting.

The most recent gameplay reveal showed off the brand new Apex Legends Storm Point map, which brings a tropical setting to the combat. Although there have been some concerns, overall players have been lifting wanting to see more, as the map does look beautiful.

With that being said, here are the names and some images of every single POI on Storm Point.

Apex Legends Storm Point map POIs

As well as bringing an abundance of wildlife, Storm Point also has a lot of variety in terms of terrain and named locations.

The latest EA blog post on the Apex Legends Storm Point map did also indicate that the map has a load of unnamed locations across the tropical island, some of which have more than enough loot for you and the team.

However, one thing is for sure, players will want to land at some of the more prominent named POIs to secure and guarantee themselves the best loot, so here are all the locations you’ll be diving into.

Barometer

Barometer

The Barometer is 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.

It looks like Barometer will be on the southern side of the map, being surrounded by shallow waters. Further, Barometer will have three Gravity Cannons, which are replacing “nearly all the redeploy balloons.”

Command Center

Command Center

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

The Antenna

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.

Checkpoint

Checkpoint

Suspended over a dense forest, Checkpoint allows you to disengage from an intense fight in new ways. If you are overwhelmed, jump off the platform in the forest below to change the engagement.

Highpoint

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. 

As Storm Point acts as one huge mountain, with the map declining towards the beach, Highpoint could be very advantageous as an initial drop, especially as it has the only redeploy beacon on the map.

Lightning Rod

Lightning Rod

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.

Storm Catcher

Storm Catcher

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.

This location looks great, but also could be a bit of a nightmare when players are rotating towards the circle, as it’s situated in between a choke point.

North Pad

North Pad

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.

Be careful though, as the location is close to Checkpoint and overlooked by The Wall, so watch out for teams trying to shoot down on you.

The Mill

The Mill

Located at the farthest western position, the Mill’s circular interior space contains high-value loot and the entryway towards the center river.

Although it doesn’t look like much, this location could be great for those teams that like landing on the edge, collecting their loot, and then walking into the more dense areas of the map.

Shipfall

Shipfall

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.

Cenote Cave

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.

This could be a very popular landing spot, especially considering it’s mostly isolated, with the opportunity for fights without worrying about a third party pulling up.

The Wall

The Wall in Apex Legends Storm Point map

The great divider between the northern beach and the mountain, the Wall is a critical landing spot for those who seek combat—it acts as the chokepoint between two significant sections of the map.

Although there is no official image of this location, it can be seen throughout the trailer, standing tall in the background.

Thunder Watch

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.

Cascade Falls

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 to land there on the initial drop.

This could be a busy drop, and although there isn’t an official image, we suspect this screenshot from the gameplay trailer is the POI in action.

Launch Site

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.

Fish Farms

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.

Gale Stations

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.

In the final scene of the trailer, the camera pans over Fish Farm and Gale Station, showing both locations. Gale Station seems to have these blue towers that act as sort of gales in the wind. The location is close to Fish Farm and may even have some height over the POI.

Well there you have it, that’s every POI on the new Apex Legends Storm Point map releasing in Season 11: Escape. Make sure you check out how to check the ALGS standings for more Apex Legends content.

Apex Legends devs respond to criticism by adding cheaper Apex Coins option

Respawn Entertainment have responded to player feedback by introducing a cheaper Apex Coins option in the game.

Published

Apex coins in Apex Legends

In response to complaints from Apex Legends players about the high cost of Apex Coins, Respawn Entertainment have added a cheaper currency pack option to the game.

Apex Coins are the premium currency in Apex Legends that can you purchase with real money and then spend in order to get your hands on new cosmetic items for your Legends and weapons.

You may have to purchase bigger currency packs in order to get yourself certain items, and the Apex Legends community has been frustrated with the high cost of these. Now, the devs have responded to this issue.

Apex Legends Coin pack options

Apex Legends players that don’t have enough currency to unlock a specific item end up having to spend a lot on bigger currency packs.The cheapest bundle that you could get contained 1,000 Apex Coins and would set you back $9.99.

This can be particularly frustrating if you only need to use a small portion of the Apex Coins in the pack. Now, Respawn and EA have addressed this problem by adding the option to purchase currency packs with a 500 coin bundle for $4.99.

Now, you’ll be able to get yourself a decent number of Apex Coins without having to spend an extremely large amount of cash. Players that only need 400 Apex Coins to buy something, and no longer need to spend a whole $10 to do so.

The addition of this option will come as a huge relief to players that were tired of paying for currency that they didn’t need for an insanely high cost.

At the time of writing, the Apex Legends developers haven’t officially announced this change, but the arrival of this cheaper currency pack shows that they were listening to community feedback.

When did Apex Legends come out?

Apex Legends characters fighting

Apex Legends is one of the most popular battle royales in the world, but when did it come out? Here’s everything you need to know about the game’s original release date.

From PUBG to Fortnite, Apex Legends to Warzone, the battle royale genre has truly dominated the gaming scene for the last five years. In fact, the mode has become so important to shooters that games that launch without one are viewed as missing a vital component.

Each battle royale brings its own spin to the genre, capturing the imagination of players looking for new experiences. For Fortnite, building set it apart from its opponents, while Warzone’s use of class loadouts made it different from anything else on the market.

For Apex Legends, the use of characters with special and unique abilities meant that nothing else on the market could match its high-octane action, and unsurprisingly, thousands still jump on and play years after its launch. But when did Apex Legends actually release?

Respawn Entertainment have dropped a new patch for Apex Legends Season 13, which includes a variety of changes and even interactive objects for Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In addition to the ranked split which occurred on June 28, Apex Legends has received a brand-new patch for Season 13, bringing a variety of bug fixes and updates to the game.

The Apex Legends 1.99 patch is small, but for those who are interested, here are the patch notes for the update.

Lifeline’s Clinic Easter Egg

This patch is very small, and Respawn Entertainment haven’t actually revealed patch notes for what the update actually brought to the game. However, thanks to dataminer Kralindo, we have information on what the update has done.

One of the most interesting changes in the patch is the addition of interactive objects in Lifeline’s Town Takeover.

In Lifeline’s Clinic, players can now play the drums, guitar, and more. Interacting with these objects will play audio, which is a little Easter Egg for Lifeline’s previous occupation as a punk band drummer, hence her drum sticks Heirloom.

Apex Legends 1.99 patch notes

Although there are no official patch notes for the Apex Legends 1.99 patch, luckily Kralindo has gone through the game’s code and figured out some of the changes.

There may be more changes server-side, but here are all the changes Kralindo managed to see:

  • Some small Newcastle tactical changes, most likely bug fixes
  • Lifeline town takeover interactive objects activated
  • 500 Apex Coins enabled in the store (via playlist)
  • Really small change for the Replicator

That’s all for the Apex Legends Season 13 1.99 patch. For more, check out how the ranked reset works.
