Apex Legends Game Modes
|Training||Training, as the name suggests, is a mode designed for players to get familiar with the gameplay and warm up before the real event. It is more of a tutorial than a practice mode, designed to get players up to speed. A player would learn the game mechanics, use equipment, revive teammates, and Call in support.|
|Firing Range||Firing Range is another practice mode that players can try out in Apex Legends. The firing range is nothing new or exciting, as it is simply a range for players to try out new weapons. It is trendy among new players of the game.|
|Battle Royale||Battle Royale is the most popular gaming mode of Apex Legends. The game starts with 60 players, divided into teams of twos or threes, and then battling it out with each other.|
Many loot items can be found on the map and used to wipe out other teams. The last team standing at the end wins the round.
Players have the option to choose the map for their gameplay. Choose between Kings Canyon, Olympus, Storm Point, and World’s Edge.
|Arena||Arena is a round-based PvP mode in this popular game. It is a 3v3 player mode without any respawn. A team must get three wins with a lead of two to be declared victorious in the match. |
The players accumulate points over the round to buy new and better weapons. So, it is crucial to start strong in the Arena mode.
This game mode is playable on these maps: Drop Off, Habitat 4, Phase Runner, Party Crasher, Overflow, and Encore.
|Ranked Battle Royale||Ranked Battle Royale mode, as evident from the name, is pretty similar to Battle Royale. The only difference is that the playing is matched using a Ranking system. |
Any player’s rank depends on how they perform in the game. The better way one in the round, the more competitive matches they would get in the pairing.
The ranking system is divided into Apex Predator, Master, Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze, with Bronze with the lowest of the lot.
|Ranked Arena||Ranked Arena is the ranked version of the Arena mode. Their ranking goes up and down depending on the team’s performance in a round, determining their next pairing. The ranking system in Ranked Arena is much less complicated than in Ranked Battle Royale.|

Battle Royale Maps
- King’s Canyon
King’s Canyon is the OG map for battle royale mode in Apex Legends. It is also extremely popular with most games on this map.
On the looks of it, it is a simple settlement, but it would immediately turn into a bloody battlefield within seconds of starting the round. It is an island with an airbase, research and development center, and water treatment plan in the enclosed area.
- World’s Edge
Located on an uninhabitable planet Talos, World’s Edge is only inhabited by a small community of hunters that have abandoned the use of modern technology, although not completely. The heat-reducing towers in the game are a sight to behold.
Olympus was a thriving city, a center for arts and science. However, an accident in one of its experimental facilities quickly forced the residents out of their settlement.
From deadly viruses to powerful vines, Olympus has seen everything. And with the abandoned structures makes it challenging for players to survive.
- Storm Front
This deserted, once-beautiful paradise has plenty of resources for players to benefit from.
The tropical storm is also pretty standard on the island, which has only encouraged settlers to get out. Naturally, it is a perfect place for a battle royal, where not only the other players are a challenge, but so is the weather.
- Drop Off
The map is located in a tall building on Psamathe. The exposed rooftop, with the setting under the smoggy skies, only adds to its appeal. Since the battle area is comparatively smaller than huge battlefields, the game will have more combats.
- Storm Point
Located in Habitat 4, one of the smallest islands in the New Antilla archipelago, this map is home to local Leviathans. The island was primarily a research and study center but has long been abandoned.
Based on the planet Boreas, this map would test every player. With one glimpse at the map, they would find the arena similar to the cursed outcast seer’s vision.
The Hephaestus Station is used to mine magma flow on the planet Talos. It has no human presence, making it an ideal place for Apex Legends arena matches.
- Party Crasher
Based in a city with questionable establishments, Party Crasher is owned by Mirage and used to pay off his debts. While no longer a downtown hub, the neon lights of the establishment do give this place an authentic appeal.
- Phase Runner
Located on Olympus, the map is based on an area used to test hi-tech equipment. Plus, many prototypes are lying abandoned on the site, with many still in working condition.
