Sticking to casual Apex Legends for the second half of Season 4? Here are five best loot zones in World’s Edge to make sure you’re crowned the Apex champion, including the whacky Mirage Voyage, the hot-spot Refinery, and more!

Get guns. Then loot. Then kills. Claim the title of Champion of the Arena. That’s the objective in every Apex match, but the first two steps aren’t always easy. Luckily, we’ve charted out some of the best places to find top-tier loot.

Here are five of the best paths to take in World’s Edge if you want to make sure you’ve got the strongest ⁠— and enough ⁠— guns and gear for the battle ahead:

Mirage Voyage to the Mining Pass vault

  • Land ⁠— Mirage Voyage
  • Then ⁠— The Mining Pass
  • Finish ⁠— The Train Yard

Loot zone path: Mirage Voyage > Hot Springs > The Mining Pass.

The self-titled Mirage Voyage barge arrived last Christmas, during Mirage’s Holo-Day Bash celebrations. Since then, it’s quickly cemented itself as one of World’s Edge’s best landing zones, and a perfect place to start a match.

There are a hefty 22 bins here for you to pilfer through right off the bat, and a host more guns and attachments just littered around. On top of that, activating the barge’s Mirage party fires out two more legendary Cargo Bots.

Finally, make sure you crack open the Cargo Bot stuck to the roof as a disco ball ⁠— this one has a good chance of having a vault key ⁠— then head east. Passing over the train line, you’ll come to a spread of buildings at Hot Springs.

Mirage Voyage is one of the best Apex Legends loot zones in the game.

Mirage’s Christmas-event barge is stuffed full of loot to get you started in every match.

Loot in an anti-clockwise circle here, and when you pop out of the third building head straight for The Mining Pass. There are three bins on the way in, as well as three more in the tunnel too, but you’re here for one thing ⁠— the locked vault.

If you scored a vault key from the ⁠Mirage disco ball, or a floating Cargo Bots, crack the vault open. With these chest plates, helmets, and attachments — all of which should be legendary or at least epic, you’re set for the Train Yard.

Here’s the final step of the Mirage Voyage loot path: battle your way through The Train Yard. Situated right in the middle of World’s Edge, there’s bound to be an enemy squad or two loitering around. Get your kills started, and head for the win.

Sniper Ridge to Drill Site or Skyhook

  • Land ⁠— The Sniper Ridge
  • Then ⁠— Skyhook outskirts
  • Finish ⁠— Drill Site
Best loot zone World's Edge Skyhook Drill Site
Respawn Entertainment
Loot zone path: Sniper’s Ridge > Skyhook outskirts > Drill Site.

Naming one of the most loot-filled locations in the game as a good loot zone might be a bit of a no-brainer, but it’s about how you approach the ever-present battle in Skyhook that is key in Season 4 ⁠— by landing on Sniper’s Ridge first.

The lofty sniper tower boasts five loot bins, including two in the upper reaches of the ridge which have guaranteed long-ranged options. Here you can often find Triple Takes, Longbows, and Sentinels, as well as scopes and attachments.

Now you’ve got some guns, move down to the twin buildings on Skyhook’s outskirts. As well as loot bins on top of each roof, there are three levels chock full of ammo, armor, and weapons to get you ready for the final push ⁠— Skyhook itself.

Drill Site is a great place to head anywhere from, once you've got your loot
Respawn Entertainment
This loot path will eventually take you to central point of interest Drill Site.

The best option here, especially if the circle is on the southern side of the map, is to head on to Drill Site. There’s only mid-tier loot here, but if you can catch unsuspecting opponents, you can scoop more loot with ease.

To leave, mount Drill Site’s Jump Tower and soar across the middle of World’s Edge. Once you’re in the skies, you can jet towards Train Yard, Lava Fissure, or Fragment West, armed with the best long-range weapons and a ton of loot.

There is one other option to add to this loot path, but it’s risky. Instead of racing over the hill and into Drill Site, you can join the big Skyhook battle. There are 26 loot bins around, so it could be well worth your time ⁠— if you can stay alive.

Refinery to The Epicenter

  • Land ⁠— Refinery
  • Then ⁠— Survey Camp
  • Finish ⁠— The Epicenter
Best loot zone World's Edge Refinery Epicenter
Respawn Entertainment
Loot zone path: Refinery > Survey Camp > The Epicenter.

Away from the western side of the map, where our first two loot zones were, lies the Refinery. A popular drop spot, the north-east mega-building has more than two dozen supply bins, and a host of shacks outside ⁠— a perfect place to start.

Land on the roof of Refinery, and grab some weapons from inside. After a quick trip out the back to the two major smokestacks, where there’s always plenty of ammo and loot on the floor, swing around to the north to the buildings.

Loot these buildings, and then put the pace on to make Survey Camp early. There’s racks of guaranteed guns that arrived in the Season 4 update here too, so make sure you check in there before heading on to the last zone.

World's Edge Epicenter is a key part of the map, and is a great loot zone
Respawn Entertainment
All roads lead to World’s Edge centerpiece, The Epicenter, if you start at the Refinery.

As well as your guns, armor, and hopefully a few rare bits of loot so far, you’ll have to bring a coat too ⁠— you’ll be heading into The Epicenter as your final destination in this loot path, with the aim to grab everything left over.

There’s every chance this would have been looted already, but there’s more than enough to go around. As well as multiple guns on the platforms and in the small dome room. The hills are also alive with supply bins and gear.

Load up. From The Epicenter, you’ll be either heading into Fragment East and West ⁠— home of the deadliest gunfights in World’s Edge ⁠— or over the gap to The Train Yard, another favorite of Apex players everywhere. Good luck!

The Geyser to Sorting Factory

  • Land ⁠— The Geyser
  • Then ⁠— The Ridge
  • Finish ⁠— Sorting Factory
Loot zone Sorting Factory World's Edge
Respawn Entertainment
Loot zone path: The Geyser > The Ridge > Sorting Factory.

This walled-off area is probably one of the safest places to drop in Apex Legends. Barely any players aim for the back of the area, there’s plenty of cover in the five big buildings, and there are four exit routes if everything goes south.

Land at the back of the Geyser to start your path. Here there are three bins and a three-room building, the center of which often boasts epic loot. Clear the whole area out ⁠— the two long halls, as well as the patches of bins ⁠— and move on.

Heading around the corner of the hill, you’ll arrive at The Ridge. There’s a building giving you cover from Sorting Factory for now. Loot that, and the four extra rooms off to the right, and then head into the major Factory location.

The Geyser is hidden from much of the rest of the World's Edge map, making it a great loot zone
Respawn Entertainment
The seclusive Geyser makes a great starting point for any Apex Legends victory.

Here is where you’ll do the majority of your fighting. The World’s Edge’s circle often closes to here, and there are acres of loot too. A whopping 45 bins ⁠— the second biggest in World’s Edge after Thermal Station ⁠— also wait to be opened here.

The key is to stay indoors. Sometimes the train arrives here too, with its guaranteed epic and legendary gear, and you can ambush players riding the map-wide track. Mainly, however, you just want to claim the centerpiece high ground.

Overlook to Fragment East & West

  • Land ⁠— Outlook
  • Then ⁠— Fragment East
  • Finish ⁠— Fragment West
Loot zone Fragments East and West
Respawn Entertainment
Loot zone path: Overlook > Fragment East > Fragment West.

Overlook is another safe landing spot, but this path takes you right into the action when you battle your way into the remnants of Capitol City. At the start though, make sure you land at the back of the east-most area to get started.

This area has a hefty 19 bins to take advantage of, as well as a smattering of loot around the ground as well. Make sure you pick the viewing platform clean. Then work your way inland to the buildings above the Underpass.

Here, there are a load of unmarked bins, as well as four buildings bursting with loot. You’ll need as much as you can get, considering your next destination ⁠— Fragment East ⁠— is going to be a little more action-packed.

Once you’re fully kitted out, you’re going to the wreckage of Capitol City. There are 32 bins in here to loot, as well as more than 10 buildings of various sizes. There even used to be a fridge so powerful it could protect from death.

Forget the glitched fridge though, because this will be your final battleground. With plenty of space to move, and exits in every direction, pick a spot. As enemies roll in, you’ll be able to rack up kills, and maybe even a well-earned win too.

Fragment East & West replaced Capitol City as a must-drop location
Respawn Entertainment
Fragment East & West once known as Capitol City still remains one of the best World’s Edge’s endgame locations.

And there you have it ⁠— five of the best World’s Edge’s loot zones to traverse on your quest to becoming a Champion of the Arena in Apex Legends.

You know where to look to find loot now, but if you’re not so sure what to take every time you crack open a bin, we’ve got you covered too: give our Ultimate Weapon Tier List for Season 4 a read, and you’ll be good to go.

Apex Legends Season 7 is on the horizon, which means a new Legend, new weapons and even a new map. So, here’s everything we know so far.

Since releasing back in February 2019, Apex Legends has cemented itself as one of the premier battle royale games around. 

Season 7 has been moved up a week, now starting on November 4, cutting your time short to complete the battle pass, if you’re still grinding through it.

The new Legend added to the roster, Horizon, will no doubt be the biggest talking point, but fans are eagerly awaiting the new map, Olympus, the vehicle, Trident, weapons, and more. So, here’s everything we know so far about what Season 7 could have in store.

Apex Legends Season 7 legend

Horizon is set to become the new Legend in Season 7, joining the roster after her teasers in the Firing Range and most recently in the Ascension trailer. However, Respawn hasn’t as of yet confirmed her abilities, but the trailer showcased a fantastic peek into her skills which will no doubt be a great way to secure the win against your enemies.

Data miners have, however, provided us with a clear indication of what Horizon’s abilities will be like, one being Gravity Lifts, which we got a teaser of in-game.

New weapon in Season 7

Looking at a potential new weapon is similar to the situation with how things work for new legends – there have been plenty of leaks and a ton of speculation, but nothing is set in stone.

One of the main possibilities is the Compound Bow. This unreleased weapon was spotted in artwork released during the early days of Season 6 as it hasn’t been released yet. But, again, it’s a case of wait and see. 

Olympus map in Apex Legends Season 7

Respawn also previously treated fans to a small look at the new map, Olympus, via an Instagram Apex Legends effect. With the release of the Ascension trailer on October 28, however, we get a broader view of this stunning map.

The map is bright and highly saturated, full of pink and red-hued trees, lush grass, and gigantic sprawling architecture that will make for a refreshing change from the already fantastic maps available to players in the past.

 Season 6, however, focused on map changes to World’s Edge – including a rocket ship launchpad over towards The Dome.

Apex Legends buffs in Season 7

In the case of Legend changes, the Respawn team regularly tweaks a few things at the start of each season – be it cutting down a cooldown on a certain ability or giving a legend a brand new passive. 

Pathfinder has already been confirmed to be getting a buff in the near future, and it makes sense that this would come in Season 7. 

Respawn have now also confirmed that Mirage and Rampart will be getting buffs in the new Season, though haven’t given any details on what exactly they will be yet.

New vehicle type

We have also been treated to a new peak at the Trident; a new vehicle that seems to resemble a hovercraft and can take multiple passengers. This is sure to be a fantastic addition to the arsenal of options available to players in how they traverse the map and get that edge over their enemies.

Season 7 introduces clubs

The official Apex Legends website also confirms Clubs are arriving, which as of now are only described as being a way to “find like-minded players, build a community, and rise together.” It will be interesting to see how these Clubs are developed and what it will mean for those that are in them. Shrugtal found out information about Clubs back in June, and it looks like they will be soon available for players to utilize with Season 7.

Apex on Steam, and what it means for you

With the launch of Season 7, Apex Legends will become available for the first time on Steam, with even greater news: player progress will carry over! Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired guns. This is a fantastic addition for those who like to utilize Steam as their centralized hub for their gaming.

New weapon type: Gadgets

It has also been suggested that a new weapon type – Gadgets – are also set to appear in Apex Legends in the future.

Reliable data miner Shurgtal pointed out that there is in-game code for Gadgets and suggested that they could be things like smoke grenades that are non-combat throwable items. These haven’t appeared in-game during Season 6, and could be ripe for Season 7.

 

As we approach the new season, we’ll keep this post updated with any claims from reliable lakers or just flat out confirmed changes from Respawn themselves.
