Apex Legends’ Legacy update dropped March 4, allowing players enough time to learn the mode and even figure out some of the Apex Legends best Arenas strategies on each of the current maps.
Arenas will evolve over time like the battle royale has, perhaps changing the weapon and Legend meta within the mode. However, the strategies on each map will likely stay the same, so let’s take a look at some of the best.
If you already have the weapons and Legend composition you like using in Arenas, the next thing you want to perfect is your strategy on each of the maps.
You may have come against some players who have their own strategy for a map and have subsequently performed better than your team as they had a plan of action. We aim to shed light on these tactics so that you and your team can gain a better understanding of how to play on each map.
Apex Legends best Arenas strategies
Phase Runner is one of the new exclusive maps for Arenas that features a portal similar to the one that runs through the map Olympus. This map is one of the larger maps for Arenas, however, it is very simple when you take the placement of the circle into consideration.
On this map, the direction of the circle is always the route to go, especially if it is on the side of the portal. Taking the Phase Runner when the circle is on its side will put your team at an advantage if the other team goes a different way. However, most teams like to follow the circle when it is on the Phase Runner’s side, so there are a few things you can do to gain an advantage over them.
- Purchase Ordnances with leftover credits, Grenades, and Arc Stars work the best
- Go through the Phase Runner and immediately start throwing your Ordnances if the opposition arrive on the other side
- If they are well placed, this should give your team the upper hand to start attacking from the sides.
If the circle is on the other side, it is best to play the high ground and stay on your side of the platform where the loot bin is. Taking the heals and protecting both sides is the best way to go about winning when the circle is on this side, taking angles on the opponent to try and single them out.
For characters like Valkyrie, Revenant, and any other Legend who has mobility, there is a great high ground spot above the loot bin on this side which can give you great angles on the other side of the platform, giving your team an advantage.
Once again, players will want to take up positions on the side that the circle lands in order to gatekeep opponents, as height and angles rule on this fairly open map. The two large spawn buildings that are on either side of the map are great for getting high ground and immediately putting pressure on the opponents. There is also an option to zipline to further height on the side of the map, which is great for gaining angles on the enemy team.
This height can be dangerous if the enemy team arrives there before you do, so come equipped with grenades for this map, as they can really help with disrupting enemies on height and forcing them to reposition, as does Valkyrie’s tactical – Missile Swarm.
When the circle lands on the other side of the map, the strategy is different, as unless the enemies don’t follow the circle, you will be in a confrontation pretty quickly. Stopping the enemies from getting to the loot bin by pressuring from the height on top of the bunkers is important.
Another great position is on top of the circular structures just outside these bunkers. There are two of these on both sides so be cautious of enemies taking the same position. However, this height can be very advantageous especially if the enemy team take up a position on top of the opposite bunker.
Party Crasher is a great map aesthetically and structurally, featuring a familiar layout on one side with a crashed version of Mirage Voyage, while the opposite side is lower down but filled with lots of cover.
The best strategy on this map is to get on top of Mirage Voyage as quickly as possible and dominate that side of the map. This is by far the better side due to its advantageous height. Furthermore, if your squad wards off enemies or the opposition decide to take the other route, your team can easily access the loot bin and crafting credits that aren’t out in the open like on the opposite side.
Legends like Octane, Valkyrie, and Pathfinder are great on this map as they can take the height on Mirage Voyage fast with their abilities and put pressure on the enemies first. Further, they can also get to the loot bin and crafting materials efficiently, allowing for a different angle on enemies on the other side of the Mirage Voyage.
Even if the circle is on the other side of this map, Mirage Voyage is still a great strategy, as players can shoot down at the enemy team on the other side of the map, put some pressure on and then quickly push towards the circle.
