Respawn Entertainment have started to slowly drop hints for what may come in Apex Legends Season 6, and here’s where you’ll find all the brand new teasers as they release in the game.

It’s a special time for the Apex community. Respawn’s transitions from one season to the next are generally filled with sly hints and interesting additions to the Apex Arena that clue in players for what may come in the following months.

This time around, the teasers started a bit early for players paying attention to the Broken Ghost questline, which was filled with episodic missions each leading up to the big reveal of a Titanfall 2 character that could play a major role in Season 6.

We also got an idea for the next location of the Apex Games, which could take people to Olympus on Psamathe. And as more teasers come filing in, there’s bound to be new discoveries along the way.

Respawn have set up a few different narratives to explore in Season 6 and beyond.

When is Apex Legends Season 6 coming?

The anticipation for the upcoming season is real, as it looks like many secrets of the Apex Games are on the cusp of being revealed. Respawn has yet to confirm the official release date of Season 6, but going by past metrics to calculate the end of the current era, the likeliest time would be on Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

Teaser 1: Hammond Robotics sites

Dispersed throughout World’s Edge, people can find huge banners that show Hammond Robotics ‘Future Worksite’ banners centralized on the Drill Site point of interest as well as the area west of The Dome.

On the Drill Site, there are five total banners that can be found, while four of them are set up in the lava-filled terrain next to The Dome. There are also land survey beacons on both sites that, once activated, show Hammond Robotics signs similar to the ones that preceded the enormous Harvester.

It remains to be seen if we’re also going to get Harvesters here too, but whatever the case, the corporation’s presence on World’s Edge could increase even more as the events of Season 6 unfold.

Teaser 2: Rocket thruster on a crane

The second teaser on the agenda only showed a single piece of a rocket that looks like a single, albeit large, thruster.

To get a look at it for yourself head over to the south side of the Sorting Factory where there’s an orange crane with the new teaser suspended in mid-air. Though there isn’t much to go off of, this could be the first stages of a transportation vessel that our Legends will take to make it to the far off world of Psamathe.

When Respawn introduced World’s Edge for the first time, we got a brief glimpse of the dropship peering out of the dense clouds for the new locale. This could be a situation similar to that, in that Respawn is showing us the first images of how we’re going to get to the next Apex Arena.

Teaser 3: Rocket engine moved

The third teaser is just a small change, with the rocket engine now being moved onto the ground next to the crane. It looks like things are being prepared to get into place. Image via u/DANNYonPC

Teaser 4: ‘All Hail Sheila!’ signs

Things took a sinister turn on August 5 for the fourth teaser, which came in the shape of cryptic spray-painted signs that read “All Hail Sheila.” While we obviously don’t know who Sheila is or what these signs mean, previously-datamined info suggests they could be a teaser for the upcoming Legend, Rampart.

According to a video put out by prominent leaker Shrugtal, Rampart is actually a female character whose first name is Sheila, which would explain the nature of these mysterious signs.

But that’s not the only thing this teaser is for: it also gives fans the first official in-game look at what sprays could look like once they’re added to Apex Legends. Their exact release date hasn’t been confirmed, but leaks point to Respawn adding a new feature that’ll allow players to paint the map with pre-set decals, similar to other games.

Crypto’s sister teaser saga

While all this is going on, there’s more lore appearing to bud involving Crypto and his long-lost sister Mila Alexander, who many believed to be dead. Not too long ago, Mila reached out to the Surveillance Expert to not only reveal that she’s alive, but to also relay a message that could have something to do with the upcoming season.

The message was split into three parts and played within the various loot bunkers that have recently opened on Kings Canyon, decipherable only by Crypto’s drone, and it’s clear that the two are in deep trying to navigate a conspiracy that revolves around the Apex Games and one central figure that is behind it all.

Apex Legends teaser schedule

Now that the gears are turning and Season 6 is on the horizon, dataminers have been shuffling through Apex Legends’ backend files for any new information for the game.

While leakers are holding back important story elements so that players can experience them without spoilers, a schedule for when teasers should be coming out has been shared by prominent leaker Shrugtal.

People should keep a close eye on Respawn’s sites and the overall Apex map on those dates to see what the studio added in wait for the new season.

What to expect in Apex Legends Season 6?

By this time, Apex fans should be well aware that Respawn is no slouch when it comes to introducing new ways for their players to experience the battle royale.

If the teasers so far have been any indication, people can expect the devs to move forward a few different storylines at the same time. The first would be the Loba’s mission to put an end to the Synthetic Nightmare’s consciousness to finally leave him dead.

And now we also know that Ash is going to be a figure, in some capacity, in the Apex Games. But this is all, presumably, going to happen on Psamathe, which is far off from the boundaries of World’s Edge.

Respawn Entertainment
There’s going to be a few storylines playing out in Apex Legends from here on out.

Hammond Robotics will have a stronger presence on World’s Edge soon. This could mean that an LTM, special event, or new quest line could come out of this development while the main game takes place on Psamathe.

With Kings Canyon getting new updates in Season 5, players may have end up with three different regions and maps they’ll be able to enjoy, which would obviously keep each one from going stale.

Whatever the next teasers reveal, it’s an exciting time to be an Apex Legends player and it’ll be fun to see where Respawn take their expansive story from here.

With Horizon officially confirmed as the next character coming to Apex Legends, players can use the new Gravity Lifts to boost themselves into the air and rotate around the map. Here’s everything you need to know about the machines, including every location and how to activate them.

Respawn Entertainment added a monitor to the Firing Range on October 13, which started to play videos featuring Dr. Mary Somers, who will become the Apex Games’ ninth Legend under her alter-ego Horizon, likely when Season 7 launches.

Before she starts competing though, Horizon has some special experiments she needs you to complete. By finishing these challenges, you can use the new Gravity Lifts that have been installed in both Kings Canyon and World’s Edge, which shoot you up into the sky and give you a new rotation option when in the heat of the battle.

You will need Horizon’s activation keycard to access these machines though, so make sure you complete the challenges provided by Apex Legends‘ newest character before you head to their locations.

How to activate Horizon’s Gravity Lifts

Before you actually use the Gravity Lifts, you’ll need to grab the keycard to make them work.

First, you’ll need to head to the Firing Range and interact with the monitor, which will then play a special message from Horizon. Leave Firing Range, and you’ll receive a notification that three new challenges have been unlocked, which you need to complete as the next step in the process.

Thankfully, these challenges aren’t too difficult so you should be able to tick them off in a couple of games, as you just need to deal with damage in mid-air, get knockdowns, and outlive opponents. The three challenges are:

  • Deal 10 damage while mid-air
  • Get 10 knockdowns
  • Outlive 120 opponents

Once you’ve finished these, head back to Firing Range, and you should now be able to open the Supply Bin that sits beside the monitor. Inside, you’ll find the keycard you need to boot up the Gravity Lifts.

Now that you have your keycard, it’s time to use it to activate the Gravity Lifts. There are two of these machines on each map, so no matter if you’re playing on World’s Edge or Kings Canyon, you’ll be able to make use of the devices.

Both of the Gravity Lifts can be found in the north of World’s Edge, with one sitting in Skyhook, and the other found inside Refinery. When you reach them, you simply interact with the machine and a blue beam of light will shoot out of the pad on the floor, that will rocket you into the sky.

The Gravity Lifts are on opposite sides of Kings Canyon, with one located at Airbase on the west, with another sitting in the east, just outside Repulsor.

The Gravity Lifts are an extremely handy rotation tool, allowing you to exit an area if the circle is closing, or giving you an escape route if you’re under attack.

They won’t remain active for long after use, so other teams likely won’t be able to follow in your beam. The machines also have a cooldown which should give you time to get away.
