Apex Legends minimap trick helps locate next zone
A thread posted to the ApexUniversity subreddit revealing a simple minimap trick has garnered over 1,700 upvotes at the time of writing. The extremely simple trick presented by Kap3 involves using a minimap feature that a lot of Apex players will be unaware of.
If you’re looking for the next zone, simply look at your minimap and inspect the current circle indicator. If the outline is blinking, you’re not inside the next ring. However, if it’s solid, that means you’re already prepared and positioned in the next zone radius.
Of course, this means you can navigate to high ground or to an advantageous position to wait for any incoming squads.
It’s obvious that a lot of the game’s community were unaware this was a feature at all, with countless veteran players on the thread claiming they’d never heard of it.
“I’ve never heard this as a day one player,” one commenter wrote, with another even claiming they’d never “even seen a pro player/streamer mention it.”
