Respawn’s battle royale will be getting a brand-new map very soon, and for those eager to gain some early knowledge, we’ve compiled some of the best Apex Legends Storm Point landing spots for Season 13.

The Apex Legends Season 13 update has made things very interesting with all the new changes, especially to ranked.

As well as a shift in the Legend meta thanks to Newcastle‘s introduction, and a change in the best weapons to use due to all the buffs and nerfs, Season 13 also brought changes to Storm Point.

Here are the best Apex Legends Storm Point landing spots for those looking to get off to a good start in Season 13.

As the first split of the Ranked Leagues will be played on Storm Point for Season 13, players may be wondering which locations are best to land at.

The following are POIs we feel will provide players with the best loot and rotation, but beware, as you may be contested.

Best Apex Legends Storm Point landing spots

First off, we have Barometer, which is one of the largest POIs on Storm Point. Barometer will be an excellent drop for those more offensive teams, as it’s one of the main attractions on the map.

Barometer has more than enough loot for a full squad while also being in a great position on the map, relatively isolated from other locations, so you don’t have to worry so much about third parties pulling up.

North Pad

North Pad is a great spot for teams to land as it has a crazy amount of loot. The whole squad can land here and get enough loot, and it’s also a great position on the map.

Anyone pushing you at this location will be easy to fight as well, as North Pad holds a strong position in the surrounding area, which is pretty flat and has a lack of cover.

New to Season 13 is the IMC Armories, and their introduction also makes North Pad a strong landing, as there is one located just outside of the POI. Looting the whole of North Pad and then completing the Armory will have you set for the rest of the match.

On the opposite side of the map, we have Shipfall, which is the furthest south POI on Storm Point. This is a great landing spot as it will give you and your team some time to loot up, maybe kill some wildlife for loot and Evo Shields, and then progress.

Shipfall is great for the teams looking for a lot of loot but are also cautious of landing with too many teams, with Barometer taking some of its shine.

It also offers a great rotation on the Eastern side of the map, offering paths to Gale Station and Fish Farm with a nearby Trident.

The Downed Beast

The Downed Beast is the new Season 13 POI added to Storm Point by Respawn. This is one of the best spots in the game as it guarantees great loot in the middle of the huge dead sea monster.

There are also plenty of looting spots around the beast, allowing all members of the squad to get their fair share of loot. Further, It’s also a great spot to get looted and then head towards a nearby fight, which is a good strategy for getting kills in Ranked.

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.



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 has become one of the most popular battle royale games in the world, but when did it first release?



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.
