There are a lot of secret spots and glitched areas in Apex Legends’ new Firing Range training area, and players have found many of them in their search for the mysterious Season 3 easter egg.

The recently-released Firing Range is a massively-revamped version of the previous training area in Apex Legends, as it includes many new options for players looking to practice.

It also features a variety of hard-to-get-to secret areas, like the Dropship, as well as a supposedly massive easter egg that the developers teased in their November 27 Devstream.

Players have spent countless hours in search of it, and although no one has found it yet, they have stumbled across some of those unknown parts of the map.

Most of those spots are difficult to reach, either because Respawn placed them that way intentionally or they’re glitched and require a specific process to get into.

How to glitch outside of the map in Firing Range

In order to reach most of the hidden areas in Firing Range, you must first glitch yourself outside of the map. To do this, you must walk into the entrance chamber that you load into at the start of your session.

On the right side of the chamber, where the rock wall meets the pathway to outside, there is a corner you must climb into and follow these steps:

  1. Start climbing onto the ledge and switch to Wraith.
  2. Start walking against the wall and switch to Crypto, which will allow you to fully climb onto the rock ledge.
  3. Once on the ledge, switch to Pathfinder and grapple, which will land you outside of the map.

How to get into the Dropship outside of Firing Range

One of the most interesting things to visit outside of the Firing Range map is the parked Dropship that carries all players over World’s Edge at the start of every match.

Getting to the Dropship isn’t easy. You must first drop into the water and run a long way to another rock island and begin climbing up, which involves a lot of calculating.

Using Pathfinder is essential to the climbing process, and it’s recommended that you also carry a lot of Ultimate Accelerants to keep regenerating your Zipline Ultimate Ability as well as a sniper rifle to be able to see farther away.

Once you’ve finished the climb, the Dropship will there to greet you at the top, and you will be able to see the inside of it by switching to Crypto and using his drone.

Interestingly enough, the developers made the inside of this version of the Dropship very detailed with a high-quality design, despite the fact that players aren’t even supposed to reach it (technically).

There are some who believe that the Dropship is the easter egg that the developers have teased, seeing how so much effort was put into making it very detailed inside.

However, most think it’s too simple to be THE easter egg, especially since it really doesn’t hint at anything or serve any purpose, so the hunt for the biggest secret in Firing Range rolls on.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
