Apex Legends players have detailed their biggest issues with the Storm Point battle royale map, describing it as the game’s “most boring” and encouraging Respawn to make adjustments.
Since its launch in 2019 with Kings Canyon as the only playable battle royale map, Respawn’s Apex Legends has had three new environments added specifically for the game’s base BR mode. They are World’s Edge, Olympus and most recently Storm Point.
The latest environment was added with Season 11, set on the planet Gaea. Deserted Island is sandy and sunny and 15% larger than World’s Edge; previously the largest card in the game.
Despite the anticipation of a new and bigger map, many fans are disappointed and encourage the game’s developers to make adjustments to Storm Point.
A post by player’thoughtStorm Point called Apex Legends the most “boring” map, a sentiment echoed by much of the game’s subreddit.
“Hot Take: Storm Point is the most boring map on Apex,” they said. “It’s just too big and far too often you’re just running around looking for a fight for a good chunk of the game. At best, you’ll have an exciting early game if you then dump a boring rest of the game. Worst case you have a boring early game and then 90% of that game will just be walking around looking for a fight.”
Though her thoughts were originally circulated as a “hot take,” the post’s popularity suggests her issues are fairly common thoughts among the playerbase.
Many pointed to Storm Point’s slower gameplay, among other things, arguing it forces players to use high-mobility Legends like Valkyrie or becomes boring.
A The player explained, “Storm Point removes the ability to use most Legends, it significantly increases playtime, and in general it just makes Apex a much slower and boring game.”
Some suggestions included removing POIs or adjusting map rotations, but at the time of writing this article, Respawn hasn’t announced any plans to change Storm Point or its distribution in Season 12 of Apex Legends.
