Apex Legends map: loot tiers for every location

Apex Legends' map doesn't work like other battle royale games. Each location has a set loot tier, meaning it is more likely to produce high-tier, mid-tier, or low-tier loot in floor drops and in chests. While everyone has their favorite drop locations in Apex Legends, mastering the map depends more on securing and area with great loot and little competition. 

Read on below to see the loot tier for every area in Apex Legends' map.

Head to Apexmap.io for the probability of finding each loot from every tier in each zone. 

High-tier loot zones
The best loot zones tend to run the perimeter of the map. We're guessing this is to spread players out a bit. 

  • Artillery
  • Relay
  • Swamps
  • Repulsor
  • Water Treatment
  • Thunderdome
  • Airbase
  • Runoff
  • Bunker
  • The Pit
  • Cascades

Mid-tier loot zones
Stick near the center of the map and you'll probably hit a mid-tier zone with a few exceptions. 

  • Slum Lakes
  • Wetlands
  • Bridges
  • Skull Town

Low-tier loot zones
Avoid Market and Hydro Dam if you can, though they're not bad places to hole up. 

  • Hydro Dam
  • Market
