The new ‘World’s Edge’ map in Apex Legends Season 3 has a lesser-known mountain called Sniper’s Ridge, from where players can snipe down at unsuspecting enemies.

The launch of Season 3: Meltdown in Apex Legends has introduced a brand new map into the popular battle royale, located on Planet Talos, where “molten heat and chemical ice collide.”

The map features 15 named locations, or points of interest (POI), all with their own unique intricacies and properties that make them worth (or not worth) landing at.

However, there is one location that isn’t actually named on the map, called Sniper’s Ridge, and it could be a very viable place to traverse to for players who like to engage in long-range combat.

Located north of the Drill Site and west of Skyhook, Sniper’s Ridge is a mountain that contains a surprisingly ample amount of supply bins, one of which is guaranteed to contain a sniper rifle.

The beauty of this location is that it overlooks Skyhook, and has a clear vantage point to nearly all of the sprawling metropolis and its surrounding areas.

Armed with the guaranteed sniper rifle that spawns there, players can post up and rain hell down on enemies who may be running around ho-hum and not expecting to be shot at from there.

The ridge itself can be accessed a variety of ways, such as landing there directly from the Drop Ship, using one of the jump tower balloons to glide there, or planting a zipline with a Pathfinder to get there.

The video below, published by YouTuber Lord Spink, includes a tour of this location, and reveals how good of a line of sight players can get from up there.

As far as Sniper’s Ridge goes, landing there straight off the rip may be a battle between risk and reward. The positive side is that you will get a sniper rifle that you can use on players who land in or around Skyhook, and shoot at them before they can find Shields and health items.

The risk is that there might not be enough good loot on the mountain, especially if you’re landing there with your whole squad, so it might be a better strategy to land at a nearby locations that may be more loot-heavy, then make you way up there.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
