Apex Legends Season 8 brought some of the biggest changes that the battle royale has seen in a while, including a reformed Kings Canyon, so we’ve listed all the new best landing spots.
Veteran Apex Legends fans will remember the map on Solace from when the game first launched on February 2019. This was the main setting for the battle royale during its early days, and now the devs have brought brand new map changes.to Kings Canyon.
The Season 8 update has added Explosive Holds filled with quality gear, along with a few new POIs. For this reason, you should pick where you decide to land very wisely, so we’ve listed the best new landing spots in the game.
Best landing spots in Apex Legends Season 8
Salvage took a spot in King’s Canyon after replacing the Skull Town and Thunderdome POIs that used to be there. It’s a great place to hunt for some top quality loot due its position near the new Mirage Voyage, as well as the Market and Gauntlet areas.
The only downside is that this location is often filled with players due to its close proximity to those other areas, so you’d better be ready for a fight. That said, we still recommend landing here if you want to collect some high tier gear.
Artillery is a major hotspot for players in Kings Canyon, and Season 8 hasn’t changed that in the slightest. This is because of the sheer amount of loot that is spread out across the area for you to collect.
While it’s not in close proximity of any other interesting POIs for you to rotate towards, it makes up for that by being well stocked, and that’s why it’s such a popular area for players to visit in the battle royale.
As the name implies, you’ll be able to get your hands on some top tier weapons, so quickly get in and then leave before other players start hunting you down.
This location is a new addition in Season 8, and has already become a common hotspot for Apex players to visit. This is because you can find three Explosive Holds nearby, along with a ton of other loot lying around the area.
Much like Salvage, this location is within close to other areas of interest, such as Artillery, Spotted Lake, and Containment. For this reason, it makes the list of the best landing spots in Apex Legends Season 8.
This area is situated in the North-Eastern section of the map, and it earned its place on this list due to its relatively low amount of player traffic. You head to the small two-story buildings in order to collect some loot.
We strongly recommend that you land here right away before it becomes too competitive, and start looting as quickly as you can before rotating towards any of the other nearby POIs, such as the Rig. You don’t want to find yourself stuck here when a gunfight starts.
Spotted Lake is another new addition to Apex Legends Season 8, so there’s a lot to discover when exploring this new area. It’s incredibly rich in terms of loot, and even has an Explosive Hold nearby for you to go through so be sure to collect some grenades to open it.
You’ll find no shortage of gear here, so expect other teams to also drop by in search of some high quality loot. While this isn’t one of the most crowded locations at the moment, you could still encounter a serious battle for the Explosive Hold.
That about covers all the best landing spots in Apex Legends Season 8. We hope that our guide has been useful to you, and you’ll agree with your picks after jumping into the battle royale.
The reformed map may seem intimidating at first, but that’s just extra incentive for you to explore and gear up. So get out there and see what Respawn Entertainment have waiting for you!
