An “honest map” of Apex Legends has been resonating with a ton of players because of its hilarious accuracy of frustrating, troll or unfortunate trends that people tend to experience throughout King’s Canyon.

While the Apex Games gives everyone a fair chance to win when they first drop to the map, there are some places in the battlefield that are more treacherous than others.

Sometimes places on the map is notorious for having terrible loot or being chaotic because its a popular landing destination which can make the game a whole lot less fun, and sometimes impossible, to play.

Respawn EntertainmentPlayers that aren’t familiar with all the drop zones in Apex Legends could learn a thing or two from the user-generated map.

In a Reddit thread, user ‘MSbabu2’ relabeled the map in Apex Legends that did away with their official names, and gave them new tags that’s more representative of what to expect should a team want to land there.

Some of the map’s highlights include “Your jumpmaster needs some Mental help” if they want to land on Bridges, as well as “Either So OP or So bad. Never (in between)” for Market.

“There isn’t enough loot [at Bridges] for a full squad,” user ‘BulliesKickAss’ responded to someone asking why Bridges was given that description. “Plus, depending on the flight path, once you leave, everywhere close is looted. Not to mention that building that’s down in the river is a fucking death trap every time.”
