First teased within the Apex Legends Season 3 gameplay trailer, the vaults are scattered all through World’s Edge. One is in an underground tunnel referred to as The Mine Move, which connects The Prepare Yard to the sphere simply outdoors Gasoline Depot. Yow will discover one other within the cavern that connects The Geyser to the settlement, positioned between Capitol Metropolis and Overlook. The third vault can be hidden in a tunnel–this one within the cliffs that separate Lava Metropolis and Sorting Manufacturing facility. We have circled the areas within the map under.
The issue, in fact, is that each one of the vaults is locked. Within the aforementioned trailer, it was implied that you just destroy one of many flying loot ticks that populate spots on the World’s Edge for a random probability of getting a key that opens the vault. Maybe we’re simply plain unfortunate right here at GameSpot, although, as we’ve not discovered a key after smashing fairly a number of ticks.
Nevertheless, the keys themselves could not be obtainable but. When you go as much as the door of any of the vaults, you will see a timer that is counting right down to Wednesday, October 9 at 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 6PM BST–a little over per week after Season Three went stay. There isn’t any indication as to what the timer particularly entails, however, we’re assuming it is counting right down to when gamers will probably be allowed to open the vaults. If that is the case, we more than likely nonetheless have a number of days earlier than keys begin dropping from ticks.
Given the contents of every vault– an assortment of purple- and gold-tier physique armor, helmets, knockdown shields, backpacks, and weapon attachments–whichever staff good points entry to the primary could have an amazing benefit for the remainder of the sport. So maybe Respawn is delaying entry to the vaults to offer gamers sufficient time to grow to be acquainted with the brand new map and have a common understanding of the brand new Cost Rifle, hop-up attachments, and gameplay adjustments. Granted, Season Three hasn’t been stay for very lengthy. We could possibly be lacking one thing and there could also be a method to pace up the timer and open the vaults proper now. We’ll preserve trying.
Within the meantime, Season Three introduces loads of unlockables to work in the direction of, with new recon character Crypto possessing 40 skins and the Meltdown battle go introducing over 100 rewards–including cool-looking legendary Pathfinder pores and skin and smoking sizzling legendary Lifeline pores and skin. Apex Legends is out there for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
