Map

From Apex Legends Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are five maps in Apex Legends.

For Battle Royale, at the start of each season, either a new map will be added, or one of the current maps will receive a map update (MU). Minor map changes, called Town Takeovers (TT), occur sparingly and they come with events. Town Takeovers are modeled after a Legend.

Map rotation[edit | edit source]

Battle Royale[edit | edit source]

Although there are three Battle Royale maps, only two are available per season and they rotate between each other. For Play Apex, the maps rotate once every 60, 90, or 120 minutes (current schedule). For Ranked Leagues, the maps rotate between the two splits. When a new map or map update comes out at the start of a new season, that map will be in the Play Apex rotation for one or two weeks to allow players to get used to it. Similarly, when a map receives a new Town Takeover, that map will be in the Play Apex rotation for up to a week.

Arenas[edit | edit source]

Three maps rotate every 15 minutes. Party Crasher and Phase Runner are permanently in rotation; the third map is a POI from one of the Battle Royale maps and it changes every 2 weeks.
