Which Apex Legends abilities can be used on the Trident vehicles?

Only certain characters can use their abilities while riding in a Trident in Apex Legends. So, here’s a full list.

Trident in Apex Legends

Even though Apex Legends is chock full of characters, only a few can use their abilities while driving around Olympus on the Trident.

With the start of Apex Legends Season 7, Respawn Entertainment made the move to introduce the battle royale’s first vehicle in the form of the Trident. 

The three-seater hovercraft spawns at certain locations around Olympus and can get you from A to B quite quickly, which is ideal if you need to make a long rotation to a circle that is starting to close in. 

As players have started to experiment with different legends using the hovercraft, it’s become apparent that not everyone can use their abilities while taking a ride and only a few legends can get a bit of a leg up.

The Trident can provide chances for fights on the move.

Given that you, sadly, can’t run over enemies with the Trident to rack up eliminations, abilities are your next best bet for picking up kills while whizzing around the new Apex Legends map. 

The best of which is, obviously, Rampart’s ultimate – the Sheila minigun. This can be placed at the back of the Trident and operated as a turret. However, it only shoots forward, so you do have to keep enemies in view.

Aside from that, Caustic’s gas traps can be placed all over but you will need to run near an enemy to trigger it. Lifeline’s DOC drone, Crypto’s Drone, and Gibraltar’s dome can also be used while on the Trident.

Every Apex Legends ability that can be used on the Trident vehicles

  • Rampart’s Ultimate – Can be placed at the back of the Trident
  • Caustic Traps – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
  • Lifeline Drone – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
  • Crypto Drone – Can be used while riding as a passenger on the trident
  • Gibraltar Dome – Can be placed on the middle section of the Trident 

As for other legends like Horizon and Octane, their Gravity Lift and Launch Pad can be used to impact the Trident but if you try and place either of them on top of the vehicle, they will simply slide off. 

One other notable omissions is Wattson’s Interceptor Pylon, which will also simply slide off if you try to place it on the Trident.

Other abilities simply can’t be used while you’re whizzing around the map, and that could change over the course of the season, but the final decision will ultimately rest with Respawn.

Apex Legends Shadow Royale is available during the new Halloween-themed event, Monsters Within. Here’s everything there is to know, including the start date, how to play, and challenges.

Apex Legends‘ new Monsters Within Event sees the return of Shadow Royale, a Halloween-inspired mode that the fans adore due to its high octane, thrilling gameplay.

Although the Monsters Within Event dropped October 12, Apex Legends Shadow Royale has only just become available, but only for a limited time.

Many are wondering how it works, and what kind of challenges to expect for it, so here’s everything you need to know.

Apex Legends Shadow Royale start date

The Apex Legends Shadow Royale LTM will officially go live in the final week of the Monsters Within Event on October 26.

As the event ends on November 2, we expect this to be the end of the Shadow Royale LTM.

How to play Shadow Royale

Hosted by Revenant, Shadow Royale will be available to all players as an LTM. You will be able to select the mode on the lobby screen the same way you can change between Battle Royale and Arenas.

The mode is simple, players will drop into a map just like any other trios game, except when a player is eliminated, they return in “Shadow Form” to protect their squad.

In Shadow Form, players have enhanced movement capabilities similar to the Titanfall games, such as faster running, wall-running, and double jumping. When you are in Shadow Form, the goal is to try your best to protect your teammates from other enemy squads and shadows.

While you are a shadow, you only have a melee attack, so make the most of your enhanced movement speed and unlimited lives to overwhelm enemy teams. You will be eliminated from the game if all members of the squad become shadows. The last squad left alive with a living member/members will take victory in this mode.

Shadow Royale challenges

Apex Legends Storm Point guide: Every POI on new Season 11 map

Season 11 introduces a brand new Apex Legends map called Storm Point, and for those wondering what it will look like, here’s all the POIs.

Published

Apex Legends Storm Point map

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

Apex Legends Storm Point

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.

How big is Apex Legends? Game file size on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch & PC

Here is everything that you need to know about the Apex Legends game file size on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Published

on

Apex Legends roster

You’ll want to know how much storage space Apex Legends will take on your system before installing it, so we’ve covered the exact game file size on PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox.

Since its release in 2019, Apex Legends has become one of the fastest-growing battle royale titles with a large player count in 2021. Some fans just play public games, while others compete in Ranked Leagues.

The developers often add new content through various update patches, so you’ll need to know how much storage space is required before you install the game.

Apex Legends game file size on PC

Apex Legends size on Steam

Installing Apex Legends requires around 74.05 GB of storage space on your PC or laptop. This means that you can’t enjoy the game on a low-end PC with relatively low disk space.

If you’re running low on storage then you can try deleting some of the larger files in your system, including other games that are already installed. You can also run a system cleaner to remove files that are taking up space.

Once you have enough space, you can try downloading Apex Legends. This can take an estimated time of 12 to 14 hours, but this can vary based on the speed of your Internet connection. You might get it done quicker if your network is fast.

Apex Legends game file size on PlayStation

 Apex Legends on PS4, Origin and Xbox one

As of version 1.82, the Apex Legends takes up around 69.82 GB on PlayStations. You’ll be able to access the game when approximately 28.95 GB of the file has completed downloading.

However, you’ll need to wait for the rest of the installation before you can access network features and play online. Installation of the base game will probably take a few minutes or an hour.

The remaining download could also take an hour or two, depending on your Internet connection.

Apex Legends game file size on Xbox

apex legends season 11 map

The Apex Legends game file size is around 69.9 GB on Xbox Series X and 75.7 GB on Series S. This means that you’ll have to wait several hours for the game to finish installing before you can play it.

You can keep the download going on your system while you play something else. If you feel like doing something else then just make sure that your system isn’t powered off when leaving the room.

As with PlayStation, the installation time could range between one hour or several depending on the speed of your network connection. You can speed it up by making sure that no other devices or apps are downloading updates or other large files.

Apex Legends game file size on Nintendo Switch

Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch

You only need around 24.85 GB of free space to install the battle royale title in your Switch. The Apex Legends game file is much smaller on the Nintendo Switch than it is on other platforms.

The success of Apex Legends since its launch has been spectacular, so it came as no surprise that fans asked the devs to bring the battle royale to other platforms. It finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.

The game size will continue to grow over time as Respawn add new content to it. Apex Legends Season 11 will bring the new Legend Ash and a new map called Storm Point that players can battle on.
