Apex Legends player accidentally finds best hiding spot on Kings Canyon

Finding good places to hide can be difficult at the best of times in a fast battle royale experience like Apex Legends, but one player appears to have found one of the best hidden crevices on Kings Canyon – completely by accident. 

Keeping a note of best places to camp it out can be helpful for a number of reasons in the Apex Games. Whether you’re being shot at, are on low health, or would like to sit back and assess the situation before going on the aggressive, knowing the safest spots on the map can be a huge advantage.

While Kings Canyon has been available – in several forms – since launch, it has also been made unavailable to play on for periods of time as well. So, not everybody will be completely aware of the best hiding spots.

Now that it’s back and can be played regularly, this is definitely one to keep a note of.

Kings Canyon is the original stomping ground for the vast majority of the Apex Legends player base, but there are still some parts of the map they won’t know about.

Reddit user ManlySyrup was fired at on the game’s original map, from multiple targets, before firing off a few smoke grenades to make a stealthy exit. Moments later, the player realized they were still being chased, until they fell into a very handy hole.

Using the rocks to shield them from enemy sights, the Bangalore managed to escape the attack without elimination – which looked certain just seconds before.

Where is the hiding spot?

If you would like to check this spot out, it’s located in the North of Kings Canyon – right next to the river.

Using the handy map we’ve put together below, all you have to do is drop into the battle royale, head over to a nearby area to loot up (you don’t want to visit here unarmed), and then see it for yourself.

The yellow dot shows you where the place can be found on Kings Canyon.

So, there you have it! Hopefully, it will be as useful as it was for this player and help you secure your next victory.

Kings Canyon is quite a tight map to play on and teams are always never too far apart, so having hiding spots like this up your sleeve is never a bad thing. For all you know, it could be the difference between life and death.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
