All Apex Legends Jump Tower locations & flight ranges in Season 6

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.

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.

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.

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.

Olympus is a city in the sky, but it has changed drastically from how it looked before disaster hit it.

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.

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.

Apex on Steam

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 if you were playing on Origin before. Playing on Steam in Season 7 will also give players special Valve-inspired gun charms. 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.
