An Apex Legends player has exposed a secret landing spot on Kings Canyon that will guarantee you a legendary revive shield each time you head there. 

With the launch of Apex Legends season five, Respawn Entertainment shook up the Kings Canyon map – adding a handful of new locations, while completely destroying old faithful spots like Skulltown. 

As players continue to drop into games during the new season, they’re figuring out where is the best place to land based on loot, potential for early fights, and how their rotations will work. Though, one set of players have uncovered a spot that might not have the best loot, but might go slightly unnoticed.

Kings Canyon has been shaken up for season five.

The hidden location was pointed out by Reddit user Damon388, who revealed that players can head into the secret bunker under the Broken Coast south landmark without the need to open the hatch from above.

All that is required is that players line-up their drop route correctly so that they can glide safely into gap in the cliffside and not plunge to their death.

Once inside, run to the right side, past the ultimate charging station, down a small hallway, and open up the doors.

A legendary knockdown shield will be waiting on the other side, but don’t charge into the small area with the speed of Octane, otherwise, you might find yourself falling to your death.

Other fans have noted that once the location becomes not-so-secret anymore, it might not be the most viable of landing spots, seeing as there isn’t all that much loot to get your hands on aside from the shield.

Regardless of that, though, getting your hands on a legendary item from the start of the game is obviously going to be a huge help and give you a leg up on the competition. Just be wary of needing to find a weapon or two elsewhere on your rotations.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
