Best Apex Legends Season 8 Landing Spots

Apex Legends Season 8 brought some of the biggest changes that the battle royale has seen in a while, including a reformed Kings Canyon, so we’ve listed all the new best landing spots.

Veteran Apex Legends fans will remember the map on Solace from when the game first launched in February 2019. This was the main setting for the battle royale during its early days, and now the devs have brought brand new map changes.to Kings Canyon.

The Season 8 update has added Explosive Holds filled with quality gear, along with a few new POIs. For this reason, you should pick where you decide to land very wisely, so we’ve listed the best new landing spots in the game.

5. Spotted Lake

Spotted Lake is a new addition to Apex Legends Season 8, so there’s a lot to discover when exploring this new area. It’s incredibly rich in terms of loot and even has an Explosive Hold nearby for you to go through so be sure to collect some grenades to open it.

You’ll find no shortage of gear here, so expect other teams to also drop by in search of some high-quality loot. While this isn’t one of the most crowded locations at the moment, you could still encounter a serious battle for the Explosive Hold.

4. Broken Relay

This area is situated in the North-Eastern section of the map, and it earned its place on this list due to its relatively low amount of player traffic. You head to the small two-story buildings to collect some loot.

We strongly recommend that you land here right away before it becomes too competitive, and start looting as quickly as you can before rotating towards any of the other nearby POIs, such as the Rig. You don’t want to find yourself stuck here when a gunfight starts.

3. Crash Site

This is another new addition in Season 8 and has already become a common hotspot for Apex players to visit. This is because you can find three Explosive Holds nearby, along with a ton of other loot lying around the area.

This location is close to other areas of interest, such as Artillery, Spotted Lake, and Containment. For this reason, it makes the list of the best landing spots in Apex Legends Season 8.

2. Artillery

Artillery is a major hotspot for players in Kings Canyon, and Season 8 hasn’t changed that in the slightest. This is because of the sheer amount of loot that is spread out across the area for you to collect.

While it’s not near any other interesting POIs for you to rotate towards, it makes up for that by being well-stocked, and that’s why it’s such a popular area for players to visit in the battle royale.

As the name implies, you’ll be able to get your hands on some top-tier weapons, so quickly get in and then leave before other players start hunting you down.

1. Salvage

Salvage took a spot in King’s Canyon after replacing the Skull Town and Thunderdome POIs that used to be there. It’s a great place to hunt for some top-quality loot due to its position near the new Mirage Voyage, as well as the Market and Gauntlet areas.

The only downside is that this location is often filled with players due to its proximity to those other areas, so you’d better be ready for a fight. That said, we still recommend landing here if you want to collect some high-tier gear.

That about covers all the best landing spots in Apex Legends Season 8. We hope that our guide has been useful to you, and you’ll agree with your picks after jumping into the battle royale.

The reformed map may seem intimidating at first, but that’s just an extra incentive for you to explore and gear up. So get out there and see what Respawn Entertainment have waiting for you!

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 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.

Apex Legends leak reveals Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus

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.
