A hidden spot on King’s Canyon could be the perfect Apex Legends sniper’s nest to help win your next few games.

Apex Legends players have uncovered a number of clever hiding spots throughout the battle royale’s lifecycle. From a sneaky spot just for Pathfinder, to a unique area in the Harvester on World’s Edge, there are plenty of places to run and hide.

A new spot discovered on Kings Canyon could be the most practical to date, however, as players are able to snipe down foes from afar, all while hidden away.

Snipers could benefit from checking out this hiding spot.

Venturing through the map with only a handful of squads left standing, a unique hiding spot was found close to The Cage.

“Do you want to know the most broken spot in the whole game?” Reddit user ‘TheIrritatedCritic’ asked in the midst of a March 31 ranked game.

Ziplining up to the high-ground in the remnants of the Bridges area from the map’s first iteration, they soon slid underneath a nearby structure.

Seemingly an area that players are supposed to be locked out of by an invisible wall of sorts, they were able to awkwardly float across to a crazily powerful hiding spot.

So… I got bored in ranked and ended up finding this hidden spot… from apexlegends


Completely hidden away from opposing teams, with only one entry-point, it would be a cheeky location to camp out a lobby if the storm closes in around that particular area.

However, gaps in the wooden surface actually allow you to peer through and potentially snipe down enemies from afar as well.

“No one will see you down there either, and going up the zipline, no one will see you,” they explained. “It’s probably the most broken spot in the f***ing game.”

Without a sniper at the ready, players could pepper away at enemies with automatic weapons or simply use the spot to scout without any fear of being picked off.

While the spot may soon be patched out of the game, developers at Respawn are yet to comment on the matter so be sure to keep an eye out for players abusing it.

Apex Legends leaker claims Heirloom weapon skins are coming

An Apex Legends leaker has claimed that Respawn are planning to add a new tier of weapons skins for guns, at the same rarity as Heirlooms.

There is plenty of choice for players when it comes to customizing their favorite Apex Legends characters or weapons, and Respawn are always releasing new cosmetic items to keep the game fresh.

The cosmetics for characters and weapons are divided into classes, based on how rare they can be to find, and new leaks are suggesting that some more ultra-rare items could be coming.

Heirloom weapon skins?

The Heirloom melee weapons for certain characters are the rarest items that can be unlocked in Apex Legends and, typically, there is only one of them released for a single Legend, each season.

However, while melee weapons are the only type of Heirloom cosmetics currently available, Apex leaker “SomeoneWhoLeaks” has revealed that ranged Heirloom skins for the different guns in-game might be next.

The leaker revealed that the rumor apparently stemmed from an investor inside EA before reminding Apex Legends fans that it has still yet to be confirmed by Respawn.

“Rumor has it that heirloom weapon skins are coming,” they explained, “this comes from some investors in EA, so take it with a grain of salt.”

The Apex leaker added that these would simply be released as ranged weapon skins but was unsure if they would be released through Heirloom Shards, similarly to the melee weapons that have already been released.

They also revealed that the timeline for when these potential Heirloom skins are coming is still unclear, which makes it unlikely that we will see them for the start of Season 7 on November 4.

While little has been revealed about these ultra-rare weapon skins, it is worth noting that nothing is set in stone and we won’t know for sure until Respawn officially release the rumored cosmetics.

SomeoneWhoLeaks has previously leaked Bangalore’s weapon heirloom, although we’re still to see this arrive in-game.
