How to easily find Flyers in Apex Legends

One super helpful Apex Legends fan has provided a guide for the best Flyer spawn locations in the King’s Canyon map.

Respawn Entertainment have been teasing Flyers like crazy lately, with the first hint dropping during the Season 2 trailer at their EA Play 2019 event at E3. 


Players then began to see the dragons in-game for the first time, with them spawning right in front of people’s eyes – much to their disbelief. If you’ve been wondering a sure-fire way to encounter them, one eagle-eyed fan has compiled a spawn location list.

Where do Flyers spawn?

Reddit user ‘FrozenFoh‘ is well known on the official Apex Legends subreddit for his guides and insight into possible leaks, and his latest upload details all the spawn locations for the fiery creatures.


Skull Town seems to be a hot spot for the Flyers, with seven possible spawn locations occurring near it. The nearby Thunderdome has no known appearances, possibly because it’s one of the best loot spots and is almost always overpopulated which scares them away.

King’s Canyon’s east side is very barren in terms of spawns, with the Swamp having no Flyers at all. Fans theorize that this is because of the tall trees, or ‘Nessy’ the Loch Ness Monster. Players have clocked appearances around the north-west side of the map, mainly at Air Base, Runoff, and Slum Lakes. Though, The Pits are seemingly a Flyer no-show.

The south side seems to be the best bet for encountering a dragon, with the Water Treatment area alone having three known spawn locations.

We could see bigger dragons

There’s no concrete reason as to why the Flyers have suddenly invaded King’s Canyon, but a recent post by infamous Apex data miner ‘That1MiningGuy’ showed that there’s a possibility of much larger dragons coming at some point in the near future.

The data miner referred to the current Flyers as ‘scouts’, and said that players can possibly expect to see bigger dragons soon. He also brought up the possibility of swarms – another obvious link to Titanfall, where they ripped ships out of the sky.

Flying dragons are already a daunting threat, so the idea of bigger ones and even hordes of them coming is a frightening one. Players should start to prepare for an all-out war just in case.

Apex Legends Evo shields are being nerfed again in Season 7

The Evo Shields in Apex Legends are set for another balance update that could come in Season 7, as Respawn are still fine-tuning how the armor upgrades to its max level.

Respawn brought the Evo Shields in the System Override patch in March, then made them a staple in the battle royale later on. Ever since then, the studio has been trying to find the right balance with the armor and its scaling defense as the game continues.


As for the studio, the hunt for that equilibrium to the item will continue as Respawn Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein indicated that players could have an increased damage threshold to hit before getting a fully evolved shield.

This change is still in the implementation phases, however, since Respawn need to tinker with the game’s networking to actually bring in the patch.

The Evo Armor values for max level will change, most likely in Season 7.

“We have a change planned for red Evo Shields for patch 7.0, but it required a little networking work (don’t ask; game dev is dumb) so we couldn’t ship it in 6.1,” Klein responded to a player who noticed there weren’t any changes to the shields in the Aftermarket update. “The plan is to increase the damage required to go to Red.”

At the time of writing, the Evo Shields need 500 damage inflicted to reach max level. That requirement is going to change, although the developer gave no indication for how much.

Complaints about the gear stem from how many people seem to have a fully upgraded Evo early in games.


Though this could be attributed to the typical gunfight fiestas that happen at any major POI after dropping into the Arena, the problem is going to get a closer look within the studio.

There’s no word if there will also be a change to the armor max Evo Shields provide, but it’s not likely since Respawn tuned that not too long ago when Season 6 started.

In any case, the company is hoping the next round of changes will leave Apex Legends in a healthier state as it concerns the popular Evo Shields in the game.
