Our Apex Legends Map guide breaks down all the points of interest on the map.
Once you’ve chosen a character and loaded into a game of Apex Legends, you’ll want to work out where you’re dropping on the map.
This battleground is called King’s Canyon and it’s an impressive space filled with a variety of locales. You’ll find everything from forests and streams to sky-high mountain tops and dilapidated shanty towns as you wander through it with your team.
It’s important, then, that you explore each area and get a better idea of how best to fight in each one of them. Some spaces are much better suited to close quarters combat, for example, while others provide brilliant sightlines that will delight the stealthiest of snipers.
Below we’ve linked an image of King’s Canyon and briefly broken down each of the main locations on the map so you can get a better idea of what each area entails before you drop there.
The map is more than likely going to evolve as the game progresses, so we’ll keep monitoring how it changes and update this guide accordingly when the time comes - bookmark this page for all the latest!

Some notable loot spots exist in Apex Legends right now. We'll be heavily updating this section once we've spent some more time with the game, so stay tuned for updates very soon!
A shanty town with a big ol' skull running across it. There are plenty of buildings to loot here and a lot of vertical space to toy around with if you do encounter any resistance. It's also been surprisingly unpopulated whenever we've dropped at this location, so give this spot a try if you want to gear up fast.
Again, another location filled to the brim with loot. Usually there aren't many people here either, so you can wander over to Skulltown once you've stripped it bare. Do be careful if another squad lands with you though, as it's quite a small area.
We'd prioritise snapping up loot quickly and getting aggressive if you spot any resistance. This way you'll stop them from running off with all the goodies, after which you can carry on looting in - relative - peace.
This zone has great loot, but expect a tonne of enemies if you land here. Make sure you aim for a door upon landing so you can get to all the good stuff as fast as possible, and get out of harm's way too.
Two Spines (East of Cascades, West of Wetlands)
Unmarked on the map, but very much underrated. It lies right between Cascades and Wetlands, or south of Artillery if your coming from that direction. While it's pretty open - which could leave you vulnerable if another team drops here - there's an absurd number of supply crates to gear up with.
