An Apex Legends player has discovered the most bizarre loot bin location in the game as it sits under World’s Edge – and you can actually work your way to it. 

Just like any other battle royale, Apex Legends is all about finding a solid landing spot, looting up, and then trying to be the last duo or trio standing.

While many players simply want to play the battle royale to win, many others are out to find secrets – be it with a certain legend and ability, or with a map itself.

Well, one player has managed to find a lonely loot bin hidden under the northern part of World’s Edge.

There appears to be a few secrets hiding under World’s Edge.

It comes via YouTuber Dirty Skirty, who showed that there is a pretty typical loot bin underneath World’s Edge but getting to it is quite the challenge. You can’t just pick any legend. 

Instead, you need somebody like Pathfinder or Loba because once you’re underneath the map, things become a bit tricky. You need to avoid hidden walls, land on tiny rocks, and these two legends have the needed abilities to make it possible. 

Once you navigate the under the map obstacle course, which sits near Overlook, you work your way to a lone loot bin. To open it, you actually have to land on top of it, but don’t expect anything special. It’s just a normal loot bin with normal loot.

Why its there is a good question, but Dirty Skirty suggested that it was simply put under the map during an update and forgotten about as the devs didn’t expect anyone to find it. Though, they did. 

It’s unlikely that you’ll see players going to find it for themselves. You probably aren’t going to get back to the normal map from where it is and even if you do, you’ll need incredible luck with the circle. 

At the very least, it’s a pretty interesting thing to find, but it doesn’t have much practical use.

Apex Legends update 1.48 fixes broken Pathfinder: Patch Notes

The Apex Legends 1.48 hotfix update has dropped and will hopefully address the troublesome Pathfinder bug that some people have encountered, while cleaning up a few more issues that Respawn noticed.

As the next phase of the battle royale takes shape in Season 6, there’s been a fair few changes to Legends across the board. However, even when the meta is going smoothly, problematic glitches tend to appear at the worst times.

Respawn dropped three bug fixes in the 1.48 patch, containing solutions for recurring issues dealing with Crypto’s EMP ultimate ability, Pathy’s Grapple, as well as the HUD elements that can sometimes get in the way of each other.

These have all been widely reported by the Apex community, who now hope it’ll be the last time they’ll have to put up with it in their matches.

Pathfinder’s shoulder bug

Apex players should be able to use Pathfinder’s Grapple Hook without hesitating, now that Respawn have launched a fix to the shoulder bug that would cover the screen.

His animation for the Tactical Ability can sometimes cause the screen to get clogged up by his shoulder. This would leave players frustrated seeing as they couldn’t relieve the situation by any means.

But the devs think they resolved the issue on their end, though players were already saying the update didn’t really fix the problem.

Crypto EMP weapon bug

While the Pathfinder bug interrupted people’s line of sight, Crypto’s EMP bug indirectly disabled the Surveillance Expert’s ability to use a gun.

Respawn said they’ve fixed an issue where “Crypto was unable to use weapons when triggering EMP while not in drone mode.”

This would obvious create a ton of problems for people trying to create a play with the EMP, making it a high-priority target for the devs to resolve.

Finally, the studio changed up the HUD elements a bit, since they saw that the ‘Performance Display’ would sometimes overlap with the Kill/Assists on the screen.

The hotfix patch will hopefully give players an easier time navigating in the Arena. While it’s a relatively small patch, check out the notes below, courtesy of Respawn.
