Apex player find incredible hiding spot on World’s Edge

Reddit user u/the-tortalion made a post in the Apex University subreddit in which he showed off a hiding spot that he found while playing in the Sorting Factory area within The World’s Edge map. This provides an incredibly useful vantage point from which you can pick off your foes.

You can get an overview of the hiding spot in the Reddit post below:

Unlike a lot of other hiding spots, this one isn’t tied to characters with specific abilities. So you can access this playing as any Legend. It’s situated on the upper levels of the building, so you’ll be out of reach and can surprise any foe unlucky enough to cross you from below.

If you find someone else already there, then you can try throwing a grenade before retreating to get them out. We’ve marked the exact spot on the World’s Edge map.

That covers everything you need to know about this new hiding spot. It’s a great choice to camp at, due to the amount of cover you can get from an elevated position. Just be careful about getting flushed out by enemy grenades.

The World’s Edge map was added to Apex Legends in Season 3, and fans are still able to find new vantage points in it while playing. Remembering the best hiding spots in an area can prove beneficial to you in the midst of the fight.

For this reason, you should always be open to experiment in the game. You might discover a new camping area, or even learn a cool new maneuver. If we hear about any more new hiding spots on Olympus, then we’ll be sure to update you.

Apex Legends Season 11 Space Pirate Collection Event: Release date, skins, Town Takeover & Heirloom

Apex Legends Season 11’s Collection Event has been leaked by dataminers, revealing details such as skins and the release date.

A brand new Apex Legends Collection Event is on its way in Season 11, and dataminers suspect it may be space pirate-themed.

Apex Legends has brought loads of new content for players through Season 11, as well as shifting the Legend meta with various buffs and nerfs.

Respawn is great at keeping the game fresh and has done an excellent job at staying on top of fixes and updates. One thing Apex Legends is known for is its extravagant Collection Event updates that come every season.

One will be arriving in Season 11 and dataminers may have leaked the details.

When is the Apex Legends Space Pirate Collection Event?

apex legends season 11 patch notes

According to popular Apex Legends dataminer GarretLeaks, players will be seeing a Space Pirate Collection Event in Season 11.

After investigating code, the leaker believes players could be seeing the event drop soon after December 11. As Apex Legends’ updates usually come on Tuesdays, we may be seeing the Space Pirate Collection Event on December 14.

There are also rumors that the Collection Event will be dropping along with the Christmas-themed-Holo-day Bash event.

Of course, these are just leaks so the dates should be taken lightly. However, GarretLeaks is a reliable source, leaking various Apex content in the past such as the map Storm Point.

Space Pirate Collection Event skins

Mirage season 11 battle pass skin

As for the theme, Garret states that seasonal battle passes have actually hinted at Collection Event themes in the past.

Season 11’s battle pass has a lot of salvaged Pilot content, which makes sense considering one of Storm Point’s POIs is a fallen Titanfall ship.

Both Gibraltar and Mirage’s Legendary Season 11 battle pass skins are salvaged Pilot outfits. This could be where the Space Pirate theme is coming from. Perhaps Pilots began salvaging armor and going on their own adventures after the Frontier War in the Titanfall timeline.

There are currently Legend banners in the battle pass depicting salvaged Pilot helmets for a variety of the Legends. Maybe the Space Pirate Collection Event will expand on this. It makes sense considering the devs mentioned plans to bring more Titanfall content.

Seer skin

Garret also revealed an Epic rarity Seer skin that will be included in the event. The skin is fairly simple but has the image of a skull in the middle of Seer’s chest. This further implies the Space Pirate theme, as Pirate flags are often depicted with a skull and bones.

There are a variety of Legends and weapons skins that have been mentioned in the code, but there are currently no images.

Wattson Heirloom & Town Takeover

Garret also believes the Wattson Heirloom will be dropping with this event, which was previously leaked.

This would make the most sense considering Wattson is one of the earliest Legends without an Heirloom. The Heirloom is said to be something like a Nessie Tamagotchi that responds to Wattson’s actions.

Further, we may also be seeing a Wattson Town Takeover during this Collection Event. Not much information has been released regarding the Town Takeover, but we’ll update this piece as news is released.


That’s all the current information we have on the Apex Legends Season 11 Space Pirate Collection Event. As more information is released, we will update this piece so stay tuned.

Apex Legends players furious with “illegal” Black Friday sale prices

Some Apex Legends have expressed their opinions on the Black Friday sale deals, claiming the developers may have changed the prices.

apex legends black friday sales

Apex Legends brought some new Black Friday deals to the in-game store recently and not all of the community is impressed.

Apex Legends has always been known for having great cosmetics. As a free-to-play game, cosmetic items and Apex Packs are a way for the developers to continue working and making great content for players.

Having said that, some players have been looking into the Black Friday deals and may have uncovered some interesting details about the prices.

apex legends black friday sale

Reddit user try-nerf-this looked into the Octane Laughing Fool bundle, comparing its price to the previous year’s Black Friday sale.

For those that don’t know, both the Octane and Wattson skins have been available in all three of the Apex Legends Black Friday sales. This is another chance for those who missed out on the previous two years to finally get their hands on these rare skins.

Unfortunately, many are not happy with the Octane bundle, claiming the devs have changed the original pricing.

In the post, the player highlights the Octane skin bundle in this and last years Black Friday sales. The original price of the bundle has changed. Many are claiming it is illegal “to market something as on sale when it had never been sold at the previously listed price.”

There may be a method for companies to get around this issue, and perhaps there is a time span for when the price can change. One user even said: “You can’t sell a skin on Thursday for $5 then sell it on Friday for $4 as a 60% discount, but you can take it off the store for a month before hand and do it.”

So, although it may not seem legit, it doesn’t mean it is illegal and Respawn are trying to give players a bad deal. The devs have received a lot of stick over cosmetic pricing over the years, and in all fairness, they have previously changed the way Collection Events work.


Perhaps they will look into this issue and address it soon. If any new information is released, we’ll be sure to cover it. For now, check out how you can check the map rotation without being in game.

How to check if you’re close to an Heirloom in Apex Legends

If you’re interested in obtaining an Heirloom, this Apex Legends Heirloom calculator may be exactly what you’re looking for.

Apex Legends Heirloom Calculator

Apex Legends is now in its eleventh season. Perhaps some players are wondering when they will be receiving their Heirloom Shards. How far off are you? Check with this Apex Legends Heirloom pack calculator.

Apex Legends is already in Season 11, with many dedicated players even remembering when the game was released in 2019. The most sought-after items throughout the game’s lifespan are definitely the illustrious Heirlooms, which are still rare to this day.

Although we are well into Season 11, we are yet to see a new Heirloom. Some leaks suggest it could be for Wattson. Regardless, players may still be interested in finding out how close they are to unlocking one with Heirloom Shards.

Apex Legends Heirloom shards

More and more players are starting to join the Apex Legends community. Even big-time streamers like NICKMERCS are currently choosing to play the game over Warzone.

For all these new players, and even those who have been playing for some time now, Heirlooms are rare. However, there is a way you can calculate how close you are to owning one.

Heirlooms are sought after items in Apex Legends that can only be acquired in two ways:

  1. Through collection events, players can unlock a new heirloom by purchasing the event set.
  2. Players also have a 1 in 500 chance of receiving 150 Heirloom Shards in an Apex Pack if they’re lucky.

Collection events grant players the ability to unlock a new, never-seen-before Heirloom that will only be available for a limited time. Once all the items in the event have been collected, which can be very pricey.

The other way is through Apex Packs, as the game will grant players 150 Heirloom Shards either by chance or on a player’s 500th pack. For those wondering how far off they are to this 500th pack, there is a handy website you can refer to.

Apex Legends Heirloom Calculator

By calculating your level reached in each season’s battle pass, daily treasure packs collected, and event packs received, the Apex Packs Calculator website can roughly estimate how many packs you have opened. Therefore, how many you are off before receiving your Heirloom Shards in the 500th.

Remember that you may have to estimate some categories, like how many packs you have purchased or how many treasure packs you collected in the previous seasons. However, even with rough estimates of these categories, you should still get a good idea of how many packs you have opened.

You can get an even better estimate by checking your account stats for each season in the lobby menu by clicking your name. This will give you a breakdown of your level reached each season and make the Apex Pack Calculator more accurate regarding the number of seasonal packs you have opened.


That’s all for how players can calculate how many packs they have opened with the Apex Legends Heirloom calculator. For more, stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our article on every Legend in Season 11 ranked.
