As part of the Grand Soriée event in Apex Legends, players have to skydive 10,000 meters to complete a challenge. Here’s how to easily complete it in a matter of minutes. 

Apex Legends’ Grand Soirée Arcade Event is in full swing, and as part of the blast back to the Roaring Twenties, players are able to dabble in a variety of LTMs.

After getting underway by bringing back the widely popular ‘duos’ game mode, the Apex Legends community is excited to get stuck into all that the Grand Soirée has to offer.

Alongside the plethora of game modes on offer, Respawn have taken things one step further by providing challenges for players to complete while running rampant in the Apex Games.

One such challenge is to skydive 10,000 meters in the ongoing ‘LIVE.DIE.LIVE’ game mode, which allows fallen teammates to respawn on allies when the circle closes in. 

While on the surface this would be a chore to complete, one player has discovered how to use their environment to their advantage.

World’s Edge’s dynamic domain and changing climate has provided players with new ways to traverse the map. One such feature are geysers, which have their own dedicated location on the map.  

Each geyser will work akin to a Jump Tower, meaning that they will catapult players into the sky and prompt the skydiving animation.

By constantly doing this in a loop, players will soon be able to tick this pesky challenge off their list — as ChrisRevillas’ pointed out to the Apex Legends subreddit: “I got over 6,000 meters traveled in a couple minutes in this one match.”

If you’re yet to complete this challenge though, you’ll need to hurry, as ‘Third Person Mode’ kicks off when game modes refresh on January 18, and new challenges will come in.

However, with some players unable to claim their challenge rewards after the most recent update, you might prefer to just crack on with normal games.

Apex Legends developer Daniel Klein has revealed the five most popular legends from Season 7 – and it should come as no surprise that Horizon is right up there already.

As the Apex Legends seasons have unfolded, it’s been easy for players to chop and change the legends they use seeing as a new character is introduced which each major, season starting update. 

The new character always receives huge attention as players want to test out the new content, but sometimes, they don’t stick around and can immediately fall to the bottom of the pile once fans are seemingly bored with them. 

In the case of Horizon and Apex Legends Season 7, she has been able to stick around as one of the most played legends – even cementing her spot amongst some of the battle royale’s long-term favorites.

Speaking on The Third Party: An Apex Legends podcast, Respawn Senior Game Designer Daniel Klein revealed how the list of most played legends in the new season had started to shape up.

“Wraith, Bloodhound, Horizon, Octane, and then Lifeline, that’s the pick order right now,” Klein told the podcast hosts in relation to the top five, noting that Horizon had started to settle in the top five after her initial explosion in use. 

Octane being so high might surprise a few players, and as Klein points out, he doesn’t “win a lot of games,” but he’s so fun to play because of his speedy abilities. Klein also noted that there is an “interesting situation” with Bloodhound because they have a high pick rate, but they don’t win a lot of games.

Additionally, the Apex developer revealed that Loba has also seen a rise in her trios win rate after her Ultimate received a bit of a shake up at the start of Season 7. Though, he didn’t note just how popular and used that she has become. 

As the season unfolds, some currently lesser-played legends might see a boost in usage after Respawn rolls out patches, so, we’ll have to wait and see as to whether or not the top five is shaken up or if it stays the same moving forward.
