Apex Legends players have uncovered an early look at some of the underground bunkers that were added to Kings Canyon in Season 5.

Spoiler Warning: If you don’t want to have the story of the Season 5 Quest spoiled, you may want to avoid reading on. While the entire Quest isn’t leaked, it may ruin some of your excitement about what’s to come.

The launch of Season 5: Fortune’s Favor introduced a brand new PVE Quest into Apex Legends, where players will need to find nine pieces of a mysterious artifact to uncover more about the Broken Ghost.

Many map changes were made in Season 5, including the addition of some secret bunkers in Apex Legends.

Along with these new missions, there have also been numerous underground bunkers added into Kings Canyon following the Season 5 update, which could potentially play a crucial part in this Season’s Quest.

While only one of the bunkers is currently accessible to players, which can be found near the cliffs of the underwater Skulltown, the rest have remained locked with seemingly no way to gain access.

However, some Apex Legends players have now managed to get an early look at what awaits inside some of the bunkers, by using Crypto’s drone to glitch through the new hatches which have been scattered at different POI across the map.

One player u/xKnightress was among the first to get inside the Slum Lakes hatch, and they took the time remaining on the drone to have a quick look around the tunnels below.

The underground bunker was much bigger than expected, and there was one room in particular that piqued the interest of many.

There appears to be some sort of chamber towards the back of the bunker, with some suggesting that it may be where players will need to bring the Quest’s artifact once it has been completed.


Apex data miner Biast12 revealed another loot bunker and claimed that while this portion of the underground tunnels had not been made available yet, it was not likely to be used in the Season Quest.

It still remains unclear when exactly these bunkers will be accessible in Season 5, although many Apex players. particularly Caustic mains, are eager for them to open.

Genius Apex Legends idea would greatly improve the badge gallery

Season 7 of Apex Legends is well underway, and players continue to explore Olympus and perfect their Horizon playstyles. Despite Respawn making many changes in the new season, people still have their own ideas on how the game can be improved – specifically the badge selection screen.

The seventh season of Apex Legends, Ascension, kicked off to an exciting start. With the addition of a new map, Legend, and the game’s first vehicle, Respawn provided players with plenty of content to enjoy.

With EA announcing that Apex Legends is on track to become a billion-dollar franchise, and confirming the launch of Season 7 as the biggest in the game’s history, the battle royale continues to be a major success. However, the success of Apex has not come without issues.

Players recently took to social media and voiced their frustration with slow battle pass progression, and Respawn quickly updated the battle pass system due to the backlash. In addition to feedback on in-game issues, the community has also suggested ways that can improve player experience within the menus.

Potential changes to the badge selector?

While many issues reported by players directly affect gameplay, other complaints are focused on the menus within Apex Legends. In a Reddit post, user ‘u/Speedy_Von_Gofast’ suggested some ways that Respawn can improve the badge selection process.

In the upload, which at the time of writing has been upvoted more than 13k times, Speedy_Von_Gofast suggests several changes to improve the player experiencing when customizing characters with different badges.

The badges gallery is getting overcrowded and need some facelift. They could be separated by categories, shrunk and give an option to hide locked badges. from apexlegends

The first suggestion is to separate badges by categories. In a mockup of the new format shared in the post, badges have been separated into various categories like account, seasonal, and ranked. The post also suggests the actual badge icons be reduced in size, to allow for viewing more options in the menu at once.

Finally, it recommends a feature that would allow players to filter out any badges they have not unlocked. This would further reduce visual clutter and help players avoid seeing locked items, if they so choose.

This post has seen plenty of support from other community members. With many positive responses, it seems that most players agree with the suggested changes, which could potentially be made to other customization categories if the support from the community is strong enough.

The suggested changes to the game’s menus appear to have strong support from the community.

Will Respawn make changes?

At the time of writing, Respawn has yet to respond to this particular thread. It remains to be seen whether or not the developer will address this feedback from the community.

Although the matter of badge selection does not impact gameplay like audio bugs or Legend balancing, character customization is a key part of the Apex Legends experience. In a game with so many unlockable skins, trackers, and badges for each of the 15 Legends, player feedback on character customization is certainly something the devs will consider.

The developer has made changes to the appearance of the game’s menus in the past, so these suggestions are not out of the question. Players should keep an eye on the thread for any official updates.
