How to get to secret Olympus rooftop pathway in Apex Legends

A newly discovered Apex Legends area on Olympus gives several legends a way to get the drop on opponents (literally) without them ever being able to see you coming, all thanks to a certain rooftop.

Olympus is the new map added to Apex for Season 7, and as you probably could have guessed, it didn’t take long for players to start finding all kinds of bugs and exploits scattered around.

We’ve already seen bugged drop locations and a hilarious glitch that sends players flying across the map while using the new Trident vehicles, and now an area that definitely seems like it should be off-limits to players has started being used mid-game.

This spot we’re talking about here would be the red roof on the building near the Turbine point of interest in the center of Olympus, a section of the map that certainly sees its fair share of fights and engagements.

The only problem is you have to fly quite a ways up to get there, but Horizon’s Gravity Lift tactical ability does the job beautifully, flinging players out on the platform to start running after taking them up just high enough.

Pathfinder’s Zipline and Octane’s jump pad have the potential to work getting you up here as well, but we haven’t seen video evidence of either of those happening just yet. Though, if you do manage to pull it off and get a clip, feel free to show us @TitanfallBlog on Twitter.

Once up there, you can actually run up the angled roof and slide down the other side, but be warned, it is a lot bigger than it looks, so you definitely can’t hang out up there all day since a “return to the map” warning does pop up.

The massive red roof is hard to miss on Olympus.

Being able to traverse the roof freely like this opens up a ton of possibilities for flanking and dropping in on unsuspecting enemy teams, until Respawn somehow takes it out, which is a very likely possibility since you very well could call it a kind of exploit.

It also helps to know where you’re headed while sliding down, since there are a few paths that will just send you straight off the map, killing you instantly, making this less of a ‘secret passage’ and more an elaborate way to throw.

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.
