An Apex Legends player mapped all of the Jump Tower locations across World’s Edge for people to get a handle on where they can be found on the map and how far they can take you in Season 6.

Jump Towers are the saving grace for Apex Legends teams who like to loot across far distances or stretch fights across different areas. With a relatively short climb before being launched, the structures can provide instant rotation options to open up the map.

Since one of the biggest blunders people usually find themselves committing in the Apex Arena is trailing too far off from the next ring’s boundaries or getting pinned down after being blind-sided by another team, positioning yourself close to Jump Towers while knowing how far they can take you can give players a major safety net in case something were to go wrong.

User ‘freedcreativity’ compiled all of their locations in the Season 6 iteration of World’s Edge, while mapping their estimated range for how far they’ll take you.

All the locations for World’s Edge Jump Towers in Apex Legends Season 6.

In all, there are 15 towers as well as three Geysers that Apex Legends players can use to get a lift off the map. While Geysers have a similar purpose, they only provide short-range travel for their immediate area.

While the distances mapped out for how far they can take you are “wonky,” according to the Redditor, the player still managed to span the entire World’s Edge map by hitting most of them along the way.

It should be noted that the estimated range is greatly influenced by not only the size of the structure but also the elevation on which it sits. So, the taller it is and the higher elevation it sits on both can lead to longer jumps.

Jump Towers in Apex Legends can be used for defense, offense, and looting.

But in general, the map above gives a great sense of how to string along Jump Tower dives to quickly get from one side of the map to another if the need should arise.

Something else that the map did is surprise a lot of players by revealing just how dangerous the dead-center of World’s Edge can be since there aren’t any towers or geysers to immediately fall back to.

Knowing where you can find Jump Towers is a crucial lifeline (no pun intended) if a match starts to hit a boiling point, so keep in mind where they’re located the next time you jump into World’s Edge.

How does Apex Legends crossplay beta work?

After being promised a few months back, crossplay is finally coming to Apex Legends in beta form. Here’s everything you need to know about the new feature, including how it works, how to disable it, and more.

At one point, many people thought that playing an online game with your friends on another console was a pipe dream. Now, in 2020, thanks to a combination of modern technology and mega corporations deciding to play nicely with each other, crossplay is slowly but surely becoming the norm across many titles in the gaming industry.

One major title that didn’t have the feature for the longest time, though, was Apex Legends. Fortunately, in June 2020 during EA Play, the developers announced that this would be changing, and that crossplay would be coming to the battle royale game in the near future. Now, Electronic Arts and Respawn have released details about the feature. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

First, it’s only releasing as a beta, for the Aftermarket Collection event. This is so Respawn can text all the features before implementing it fully, along with the Steam and Switch release. For now, cross-play is only between PS4, Xbox One, and Origin.

How to add friends on other platforms

Finding people to play with on other platforms is relatively easy. All you have to do is open the friends menu, click the Find Friend option and search for their name.The game will automatically look for any player matching that name on any system.

Simply search your friends on all platforms to find them.

How to enable/disable crossplay

Crossplay is automatically enabled, so if you don’t have to do anything right off the bat if you want to play with people on other platforms. But what if you don’t want to participate in the beta? What if you didn’t originally but now you want to try it out?

The option to enable and disable crossplay is found in the settings menu. This creates the possibility of longer wait times, as you’re effectively restricting the pool of players that the game can search. Still, the option is there if you want it.

The ability to enable and disable crossplay will be in the settings menu, but it’s enabled by default.

Can PC players play with console players?

By default, PC players will only be matched with PC players in normal matchmaking, while console players will only be matched with console players.

That being said, consoles can still play with PC should they so desire it, but they have to be in a party together before they start matchmaking. After that, the game will include PC players in the pool to search from.

Given the fact that this is a beta, this can obviously change in time for the full release. However, this is currently how it’s set up.

Is cross-progression enabled for the game?

While this is something that’s being considered by Respawn, the feature is not enabled in Apex Legends currently, so if you want to play on another console, you won’t have any of your items that you previously unlocked.

Respawn say that cross-progression is a “valuable” feature, but will take about it during the Steam launch later this year.

All in all, this seems like a great beta and a chance to get feedback from the community. As previously mentioned, given the fact that this is a beta, things can obviously change and be tweaked but for right now, this is a good start.
