Apex Legends - Activating the Firing Range Bots Easter Egg

Apex Legends has implemented numerous easter eggs. even since the very early release. Most of them are just for fun, like Nessie’s easter egg, or one of the developer’s cute dogs, Mirage’s cell phone, and many, many more.

One of the easter eggs though comes actually really handy to use as a warm-up and it is a pretty good way to train your aim in-game. Fun fact is that Respawn was not aware of this addition, as one of the developers stated that he got it in the game since day one without telling the rest of his team!

Below I will show you, step by step, how to trigger the bots that are placed in The Apex Legends’ Fire Range. You can follow the video and look for more specific information in the step-by-step explanation below the video!

Step 1: Drop Your Weapon & Ammo

The first thing you do after entering Firing Range, using any Legend, is to drop your weapon and ammo.

Step 2: Go to Last Spawn on Your Left

After you drop your weapon and ammunition, head outside of your spawn, turn left, and head in the last spawn (cave).

Step 3: Press “M” & Choose Pathfinder

After you enter the last spawn (cave) on your left, press “M” and change to Pathfinder. If you entered firing Range with Pathfinder you can skip this step.

Step 4: Grapple on the Metal Sheet Above

Inside the cave, you will find a metal sheet hanging on the shielding. Grapple and land on this metal sheeting.

Step 5: Crouch & Look Down

When you successfully land on the metal sheet, crouch and look downwards. Beware that you need to look down in a very specific spot in order to trigger the bots, and it is usually the part that most people fail to do, so pay attention to the video to see the exact angle you have to look at.

Step 6: Press “M” & Change Legend

If you made sure that you are looking in the right direction, press “M” again, and change Legend. If you still want Pathfinder, change to any Legend, and change back to Pathfinder, after you confirm the next step.

Step 7: The Metal Sound Indicates That The Bots Are Active

The moment you will change Legend, you will hear metal grinding sound, which indicates that you succeded to activate the bots! If you don’t hear that sound, you will have to double-check if you did everything else right.

Step 8: Loot Fast, Have Fun!

The bots can kill you and they will if you do not loot fast! As you can see in the video I almost died out of it cause I had no idea that they would all shoot me at the same time, and I also had no clue that they had Peacekeepers! ?

Heavily devoted to FPS games, but I still enjoy a well-written story game or survival games that include crafting. I really enjoy gaming with friends, but my friends usually play other kinds of games, so I'm mostly a solo-queue player and totally used to it.
