Explosive Holds in Apex Legends Season 8

With Apex Legends Season 8 just around the corner, Respawn Entertainment have confirmed plenty of map changes for the battle royale, such as new Explosive Holds filled with powerful gear on Kings Canyon. 

Apex Legends Season 8, Mayhem, is scheduled to drop on February 2, and we can expect a ton of exciting new content in the new update. This includes the new Legend, Fuse, the 30-30 Repeater, and various other features.

One of the most notable new additions is the reshaped Kings Canyon. Fuse’s arrival was sabotaged by Maggie, who then set off explosives across the map which damaged the location. The upcoming Season also will also bring other new map changes.

The Kings Canyon Explosive Holds provide a great looting opportunity, since they’re filled with powerful weapons and gear, so here’s how you can access them for yourself.

Respawn stated in an official blog post that “when the ship came crashing down, several mobile armories that were being stored in its cargo bay were lost and scattered across Kings Canyon.”

This means there are rare guns, ammo, and useful attachments that are ripe for the picking. Although these Explosive Holds require security clearance to open them, you can also access them with some well-placed ordnance.

Here’s how you can open the Explosive Holds in Kings Canyon:

  1. Jump and land near the Explosive Holds in King Canyon.
  2. Collect grenades from your surroundings.
  3. Throw a an explosive item at the door, like a Frag Grenade, Thermite or Arc Star.
  4. Enter via the new opening that the explosives will create for you.

That sums up everything you need to do in order to access these locations. You won’t face too much trouble finding them either, as they will be dotted around the map, so you can directly land near one after you jump at the start of the match.

The Explosive Holds will replace the bunkers that were around the map, and will also have a lot in common with the loot vaults on Worlds Edge. However, you’re not going to be the only one looking for them, so, be ready for a fight.

Other players will also have the idea to land near these since they’ll also want some quality gear at the start of the match. For that reason, you’ll have to make sure that you have sufficient shields and weapons to defend yourself.

Despite the inherent danger, it’s still worth raiding these Explosive Holds for some impressive gear that can help you come out on top. We haven’t learned how many of these can be found on the map, but we’ll update you once we do.
