Explosive Holds were added to Apex Legends in Season 8, offering players the chance to pick up some weapons, Hop-Ups, ammo, and more to give them a better chance on Kings Canyon.

If you’ve played Season 8 at all you’ve likely run into them here and there, and they’re always handy to crack open if you’ve got a grenade in your backpack.

However, what can be tough is locating them when you drop somewhere new or when you’re traversing the map.

So, we’ve put together a handy map of all Explosive Hold locations on Kings Canyon, which should definitely help you and your squad make more informed decisions about what to do.

If you’re looking to plan out your rotations or drops a little better in Apex Legends, knowing where these Explosive Holds are could be extremely beneficial.

We’ve put together a handy guide on how to access Explosive Holds, but if you’re already well-versed on how to get into them and what you can get, you can check out our location guide below.

This is a map we’ve put together of every Hold we’ve found so far on Kings Canyon — but there may be even more for you to utilize. The red dots are where you will find Holds.

As you can see, they’re fairly evenly spread out across the map. Areas such as the South side, around Market, Water Treatment, and Repulsor, seems a hotspot for Explosive Hold drops.

Similarly, you could land at the North side and take advantage of the Holds located around Crash Site and Spotted Lake.

As mentioned above, we’re still continuously updating this list and making sure it’s fully populated. Feel free to tweet us at @TitanfallBlog if you’ve found one that we haven’t included.

Teasers for Caustic’s Town Takeover in Apex Legends Season 8 are appearing on Kings Canyon, giving players a mixed bag of hype and dread for what the Toxic Trapper’s event will play like.

Respawn likes to give their Legends a turn in the spotlight with Town Takeovers that transform a point of interest (POI) in the battle royale to emulate a given character. We’ve seen ones for Octane, Mirage, and Bloodhound, just to name a few.

As the studio makes its way through their catalog of Legends, there’s always an atmosphere of renewed excitement for who will get the next Town Takeover going into a season. For Season 8, it’s expected to be part of the Chaos Theory event.

If previous leaks are to be believed, Season 8’s Town Takeover is centered around Caustic and plenty of teasers should be in the game soon.

Apex Legends Caustic Town Takeover teasers

Apex Legends’ loading screen on February 22 showed Caustic walking then stopping to overlook an area just next to Crash Site on Kings Canyon.

Dropping at this location, players could then play a short voice message from Caustic: “The erupted gas pocket and fuel have combined, to create a gargantuan supply of toxin. If there’s a way to refine it, I could mold it into something spectacular.”

Second Caustic teaser

The next teaser then dropped on February 25. Again, the loading screen was changed to a new location, and dropping here, you can find another message from Caustic.

“The best way to test this would be human subjects. Luckily, there’s an ample supply of Lab Rats right here.”


With all of the discussion going around the Legend, there’s people excited to see what a Caustic Town Takeover would play like. However, players that aren’t loving how strong he is at the moment are dreading to see how toxic the event will be.

According to the schedule, we can expect the next in-game teaser to appear on Feb. 27, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that one too.
