With there being so much craze surrounding the mysterious Season 3 easter egg located in Apex Legends’ Firing Range, a developer from Respawn Entertainment has revealed major clues to help players find it. 

Ever since the Apex Legends developers revealed that there was a huge easter egg hidden in the new Firing Range training area, many in the community have been spending countless hours in search of it.

While there have been easter eggs in the game before, this one’s been teased as a level above the others, with the developers using quotes like “that’s in the game right now?” to hype it up.

No one has found it yet, but players have certainly tried, and in the process, they’ve discovered a plethora of secrets about Firing Range, such as how to glitch outside of the map and get to the parked Dropship nearby.

Their effort hasn’t gone unnoticed and, in order to help the community out, developer Rayme Vinson dropped a few hints about the secret that has proven to be very elusive so far.

Respawn EntertainmentThere is a mysterious Apex Legends Season 3 easter egg in Firing Range, but no one has been able to find it yet.

When asked about the easter egg on Twitter, Vinson revealed that it does not require three people to unlock it, so it’s more than likely something that players can discover on their own.

He also disclosed that it’s very much within the boundaries of the Firing Range, meaning players don’t need to use any glitches to figure it out.

“It’s also nothing about getting outside the map or etc,” he tweeted. I didn’t even know you could glitch out of the map until three days ago.”

In fact, according to Vinson, nothing really too out of the ordinary needs to be done like “sequences to follow or crazy trick shots.” He also said that the easter egg is simple but unlikely to be discovered accidentally or by doing something random.

However, perhaps the biggest clue of all came in the form of a riddle, which included a redacted word or phrase that players will need to figure out.

“Four simple things about you need to be true. If they’re true when you ******, the thing happens, and it’s not subtle.”

Judging by all these clues and hints, it seems that the process to discover this easter egg isn’t as complicated as the community is making it out to be, which is hard to blame them for.

It’s only natural for players to assume that this secret will require them to go above and beyond, but apparently that’s not the case. That said, whether or not these hints will end up helping remains to be seen, but it feels like a matter of time before someone figures it out.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends was an overnight sensation and it’s barely slowed down. In its two years of success, there’s been map changes galore, new legends joining the fight, and an ever-evolving meta – but we’re here to test your knowledge with a quiz.

Kings Canyon was the original map we all dropped into on that fine day of February 4, 2019. Fast forward 24 months, Apex Legends is still one of the most popular battle royale’s – but a lot has changed.

As we approach Season 8, there’s 15 characters to play with, two maps to drop into, and a weapons list containing 24 different guns. On top of that, each seasonal update has delivered different tweaks to gameplay and snippets of Legend lore for various fighters – which means the scope for our quiz questions is quite broad.

By now, you will have been named Champions of the Arena on numerous occasions. But, do you have what it takes to get a perfect score on our ultimate Apex Legends quiz?

Take our Apex Legends quiz!

Your test score will determine just how well you know the Outlands in the Apex world.

The world, of course, is connected to that of the Titanfall series, which was also developed by Respawn Entertainment. Many weapons and features have crossed over between planets, presumably with even more of that to come in the future.

Fuse is the latest to join Apex Legends as a playable character, with a new 30-30 Repeater rifle being added too. For more details on that, check out some of the stories we’ve covered for the game’s next major update:

Don’t be too downhearted if you don’t receive a perfect score this time, but if you are named a Champion, be sure to tweet us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.
