Apex Legends' Olympus has seen a lot of changes over the years, and it now finds a home for itself as one of the game's ranked and public maps in rotation. In ranked, you'll want to make sure you're off to a great start, and you'll want to choose an ideal landing spot to make that happen. What makes a great landing spot can differ from person to person; do you prefer to start with a quiet beginning, or contest other Legends immediately? There are lots of different Apex strategies; with that in mind, let's take a look at the best landing locations on Apex Legends' Olympus map for different playstyles during Season 19.
- Best for: Highly contested zones
Hammond Labs has been a great landing spot season after season, and that hasn't changed in recent times. Naturally, there's lots of loot throughout the labs themselves. However, the labs are right in the center of the map, meaning that lots of players tend to land in this area. The labs themselves also have quite an open layout, which means you can't make an easy escape most of the time.
Overall, while Hammond Labs has some of the best loot in the game, you might have to fight other players for it early on. If you don't feel confident doing that, you might want to try out another landing spot - but for those who are ready to brave it, Hammond Labs is one of the best landing spots on Olympus.
- Best for: Great loot, intermediate to experienced players
Like Hammond Labs, Icarus is one of the most highly-contested locations on the map, but it's also one of the best landing spots for experienced players who want to get their hands on some great loot early. The Icarus itself is an enormous ship, with rare loot throughout the ship. You may come across some other players while journeying, but you should be able to escape using the ship's vast hallways - or simply take them down with the great weapons you've found here.
- Best for: Sniper guns
Solar Array is one of the best places on the map Olympus to find snipers, including attachments for them, too. That said, lots of people want to get their hands on these great weapons - so you'll likely be heavily contested if you decide to land here. In other words, you'll want to grab those snipers and book it - or be prepared to use them on the other players in the area. But watch out; since snipers are so common here, you'll have to watch out to prevent dying to one yourself.
Those are the best landing locations in Apex Legends' Olympus map. There are many different viable drop spots on this map, so depending on your playstyle, you'll want to try out more than one of them and figure out which one works best for you. Good luck!
