Apex Legends players have got a sneaky spot that could give you the drop on unsuspecting enemies who are rushing around Labs like headless chickens. 

Just like any other battle royale, there are plenty of different ways to play Apex Legends. You can hang back with someone as Crypto and play the edge of the circle. You can get ultra-aggressive with Pathfinder, or slow it down and set up defenses as Rampart.

Each player falls into a different category but there are plenty of tricks and tips that everyone shares – be it the best way to set up a particular weapon or a killer hiding spot.

Well, when it comes to the latter, players have got a ridiculously powerful one inside the middle room of Labs, where you can get the drop on unsuspecting enemies.

Labs can be full of enemies in the early game, so watch out.

It was pointed out by Reddit user OurSocialStatus, who showcased a clip from a recent game where they had ventured into the center room of Labs – only to be greeted by a number of kill-hungry enemies. 

Instead of facing them head-on, the player used the open door on the right-hand side of the screen to jump up to a perch by the ceiling. This gave them the high ground advantage, while also being hidden away. 

As enemies rushed into the room, OurSocialStatus was able to pick them off with ease as the foes struggled to figure out who had got the drop on them. Though, the Reddit user made it slightly easier for them when they dropped down from the ceiling.

While the spot does appear to be pretty powerful, especially in the early game as plenty of players make a mad rush for Labs, you probably will need a bit of luck on your side to get there. 

If there are no enemies around, the jump to the ceiling should be pretty simple but if the timing is wrong, you could be caught out and sent right back to the main menu.

A huge new Apex Legends leak has revealed a closer look at the batch of new legends that are set to be added in the coming seasons.

When Apex Legends launched back in February of 2019, Respawn Entertainment confirmed that with each new season they release, a new Legend will also be added to the battle royale.

As a result, we’ve seen new characters like Octane, Wattson, Loba, and Revenant shake up the meta, but in addition to those, there have been a whole host of leaked legends too. These legends range from early development, so just having a name, to those who look ready to be added. 

Previously, a pretty massive leak revealed that there are seven legends in line to be added over the coming seasons, however, a new leak has given players a closer look at how they’ll appear in-game.

In-game look at leaked Apex Legends characters

It comes from reliable leaker Biast12, who dropped a whole batch of screenshots regarding the upcoming legends – including those like Horizon, Valk, and Blisk. 

These were included in the previous leak, alongside names like Fuse and Ash, who also appear here, but there are also two new names mentioned – Gunzerker and Pariah. 

Neither of these two characters have an in-game model like the rest, and are represented by yellow and purple dummies. However, Gunzerker has been given the description of a ‘weapon’s enthusiast’ while Pariah doesn’t have a description.

The previous leak only listed legend as either Offensive or Recon, but this hasn’t changed that with the legend descriptions. However, neither leak has managed to reveal the release schedule for these legends for the coming seasons, so it’s still a bit of a guessing game.  

All signs have pointed to Horizon being added in Season 7, though some players have suggested that Valk will be added in her place. Either way, we’ll just have to wait and see what Respawn has up their sleeve moving forward.
