Respawn introduced the all-new Evo Shields to Apex Legends with their System Override Collection Event on March 3, and here’s where you can find them. 

The new event brought a ton of changes to the game, with new limited-time loot, Legend changes, item adjustments, and of course the Evo Shields being added in an attempt to spice up the current meta.

These new shields are different from any other item in the game as they evolve throughout the match, becoming stronger as you eliminate enemies. If you want to get your hands on one then all you need to do is check out the locations below.

As expected, the Evo Shields are dotted all around the map and there are undoubtedly some locations that still remain undiscovered. However, some key areas include The Epicenter, Lava Fissure, and near the Harvester. Reddit user Dndo did some intense research as soon as the event launched and has created a map of some of the locations.

If you want to test out the Evo Shield then these places are some of the best to go to, although, as you can see in the image below there’s a chance to find one just about anywhere.

Keep in mind though that picking one up will mean starting with white level armor and you’ll need to level it up. However, the shield can level to the all-new red rarity, making it even stronger than Legendary armor.

As the Evo Shield is part of Apex’s new ‘Deja Loot’ system, it is just a temporary addition to the game. However, Respawn have stated that they may consider keeping it as a permanent item depending on the community’s reaction.

For now though, all fans can do is test out the latest changes and if you’ve been wanting to try out the new Evo Shield, you know where to go.

What does Branthium mean in Apex Legends? Horizon & Ash Season 7 teasers

Amid all the teasers for Apex Legends Season 7, one word has been on the lips of a number of characters: Branthium. But, what is this? A location, material, or something else entirely? Here, we’ll put together all the clues to get to the bottom of this mystery.

The first time we heard the word Branthium in Apex Legends, it came from Ash, at the end of the Season 5 Broken Ghost quest.

Ash is the villain from Titanfall 2, who was recruited by Kuben Blisk, before she “died” at the hands of Jack Cooper, was put back together again, her memory wiped, and then her head split into parts and spread throughout Kings Canyon.

Once the Legends put her head back together, she spoke to them, and, as part of an unintelligible message, said: “all roads lead to Branthium.”

What is Branthium in Apex Legends?

After the mention from Ash, in the first Twitter teaser for Season 7, Horizon (expected to be the next playable Legend), repeated the word “Branthium” in among all the static.

It later became clear that Horizon was repeating what Ash said – or, perhaps Ash was repeating Horizon.

Is Branthium a place?

The saying, “all roads lead to Branthium”, is undoubtedly a play on the common phrase “all roads lead to Rome.” Typically, this saying refers to “all paths or activities lead to the center of things” – it comes from Ancient Rome in the literal sense, when all roads started from the capital city.

So, at first, most theories believed Branthium was a place, possibly related to the planet Psamathe and its city, Olympus. Ash finished her monologue by saying “Welcome to Olympus.”

But, a spanner was thrown in the works of this theory by Horizon. In the latest Twitter teaser, Horizon says: “Just got to figure out how he can fuse the Branthium (or Brantium?) without critical mass.”

So, is Branthium actually some kind of element, or fuel, or material? This remains unclear, but it wouldn’t make sense for Ash (and Horizon) to say “All roads lead to Branthium,” if it was simply some kind of element.

This theory could line up though with the involvement of Hammon Robotics. The Planet Harvester which launched in Season 4 is being used by Hammond “to gather precious metals from the core of the planet for reasons unknown.” Is this metal Branthium/Brantium?

Perhaps, Branthium is both a place and an element, with the latter named after the former. Brantium could be a metal discovered on the planet Branthium? For now, we simply don’t know, but we’ll keep this post updated as more teasers emerge about this mysterious word, and what it could mean.

Season 7 is set to start on November 4 – a week earlier than initially planned – so we should learn a lot more then.
