5.) Relay

How to Land and Loot at Relay

If you’re new to Apex or just don’t feel like fighting 10 squads at once, but still want some decent loot, then Relay is for you! Relay is a great spot to land because not many people, if any, land there. It is also a high tier location, so you don’t have to worry about getting crappy loot. If you have that one guy on your team who likes to snatch up all the loot for himself, don’t worry! This place has plenty of buildings and supply containers, so your whole team can be fully loaded out before having to fight a single person!

4.) Thunderdome

Thunderdome is a great place to get some peace of mind when looting, but also allows you to get into combat quickly if you want to. With Thunderdome being wide, open, and a high tier location, you’ll be able to get plenty of sweet gear for the whole team. Once your geared up, you can head into Skull town and get the drop on enemies who are fighting other teams.

3.) Supply Ships

How to Land and Loot at Supply Ships

Supply Ships are aircraft that fly to random places on the map that have exceptional loot just waiting for you to snag up! However, you’re not going to be the only squad eyeing this bad boy. Typically you’ll have a bunch of other ruthless squads landing on the supply ship with you, trying to grab that juicy loot before you. While the supply ships usually have a lot of high tier loot, its super small and there’s barely any cover. The key to succeed at looting supply ships is making sure you’re one of the first squads to land on the ship and quickly snag the nearest weapon you can find. Supply ships are high risk - high reward. If you really want that sweet loot, be prepared to fight for it!

What makes this a great landing spot:

  • High tier zone

How to Land and Loot at Artillery

Artillery is an awesome place to find high tier loot with only a few teams to worry about. It’s a great area if you want good loot, but still want to quickly get into the action without being overwhelmed. If you or your teammates get killed, don’t worry! There’s a respawn station near the front of Artillery which will get you and your squad back into the fight and reclaim your hard earned loot in no time at all. If the combat becomes a little too much for you, Artillery also has some nice escape routes for you with two tunnels leading into the cascades and a launch balloon to take you far away from the fight.

How to Land and Loot at Hot Zones:

Hot Zones are similar to supply ships in that they provide high quality loot, but instead of landing on a ship you’re going to be landing at a random place on the map. This area has high tier loot and possibly gold attachments or, better yet, a gold fully kitted weapon! Gold weapons are rare to find in Apex. Hot zones have a much greater chance to pick yourself up a nice gold weapon, with all the attachments you could ever want already on it. A lot of people are going to be gunning for these hot zones, but you’ll have a lot more room, cover, and ways to go obtaining this loot than you would on supply ships.
