Apex Legends bug may have revealed World’s Edge UFO landing spot

A glitched hologram for Hammond Robotics on World’s Edge could be an indication of where Apex Legends’ ‘UFO’ will land, as speculation for Season 7’s events is starting to grow.

Most in the Apex Legends community will remember we got our first look at a UFO-esque point of interest during a developer livestream in June. At the time, Respawn glossed over the enormous vehicle floating off Broken Coast South, leaving players to wonder when they would act on the strange locale.

In early September, a leaked walkthrough of the supposed UFO revealed the kind of structure for the POI that players can expect, but again, no concrete details on when it will come to the game were released.

Though that still remains to be the case, a bug near the Skyhook location on World’s Edge is giving new hope of where we could at least see the object in the Apex Arena.

In the opening moments of a match, user ‘Dill_P1’ clipped an instance in which a Hammond Robotics holo can be clearly seen, although its light source wasn’t readily apparent.

The Skyhook, and the Space Elevator structure within the POI, sits on the northwest portion of the map. While the player was looking for a place to land on the map, a flickering Hammond Robotics logo could be seen toward the bottom of the screen.

The logo was grayed out instead of the bright white image that’s appeared numerous times before in the game. Not only that, but it also was the beginning of a match, just seconds after players were allowed to drop, meaning no one could have already been there to activate the beacon that traditionally lights up the holo.

“So it looks like the UFO could be over Skyhook at the Space Elevator,” prominent dataminer ‘ Biast12’ said, speculating if the ‘glitch’ is hinting at anything. “That would also kinda make sense since you would be able to go on the UFO from the Space elevator”

Previous images for the Space Elevator showed Legends placed on various locations on the gigantic structure. This could be an indication that Respawn had planned for players to eventually scale the building.

As the season continues, players will be keeping an eye out for any clues that Respawn might sneak into Apex Legends that could give more indication of where the UFO could land, if, of course, it’s even coming.

If you saw the new Apex Legends map called Olympus and thought to yourself “I’d like to explore that without having to deal with annoying enemies”, then Respawn Entertainment has the perfect solution: a no-weapon LTM called Olympus Preview.

With the start of Season 7, Respawn Entertainment is adding a brand new map to Apex Legends called Olympus. After being rumored for quite a while now, the developers finally confirmed the news during the Season 7 trailer, and gave fans an even deeper dive into the map during the gameplay reveal.

While that’s all well and good, being forced to jump into a map that you don’t know and immediately fight other players trying to experience the same thing is always a bit annoying in battle royale games. Luckily, the developers seem to have a solution, and it’s a cool concept.

New Olympus Preview LTM

With the start of Season 7, Respawn will be including a new limited-time mode called Olympus Preview, which will allow players to explore and experience everything the new map has to offer without having to deal with other opponents that immediately try to kill you.

The new 30-player mode will give fans an opportunity to jump into the map and test it out to their heart’s content. They’ll even be able to test the circles.

When a new map gets added to a battle royale game, not just Apex Legends, a lot of players just want a few matches to explore and experience it before having to fight others, so this helps solve that problem.

Soon players will be able to jump into the new Apex map thanks to a weapon-free mode called Olympus Preview.

It also helps fans familiarize themselves with it so that they aren’t jumping in completely blind. The first Ranked split will be on Olympus too, so if you’re a competitive player, this new LTM comes highly recommended.

It’ll be interesting to see Apex continues this trend as time goes on. Obviously, that would require them to keep adding new maps but, nevertheless, it’s a fun concept to say the least.
