The best landing spots for the Apex Legends Genesis Event in Kings Canyon and World's Edge are imperative to know for teams looking to dominate lobbies on the OG maps starting June 29.

Here are our top suggested spots to drop in the original versions of Kings Canyon and World's Edge during the Apex Legends Genesis Collection Event.

Best Landing Spots for the Apex Legends Genesis Event: Kings Canyon and World's Edge

1. Spots for Season 0 Kings Canyon

Water Treatment is a great spot for teams to land as it offers plenty of room to loot and is easy to rotate out of to multiple locations easily. Additionally, it's really close to Skull Town, setting up teams who land at Water Treatment to join the fight after the initial hot drop chaos has ensued.

Another underrated spot near Skull Town, the Thunderdome is an extremely fun and unique OG POI to land at. With its elevated cages, zip lines and traditional pieces of blocky cover, Thunderdome is a great option to, once again, drop into off the bat and then rotate into Skull Town.

Lastly, we have to go with Skull Town as a place for players to drop. Just like Fortnite's Tilted Towers and Warzone's Superstore, Skull Town was the premier POI to drop in Apex Legends for its high risk, high reward action at the start of matches.

2. Spots for Season 3 World's Edge

Fuel Depot is a nice spot to land as it will give newer players an idea of just how drastically the map has changed with where things stand in Season 9.

In the same vein, players should check out Drill Site to see what it used to be like before it turned into Countdown.

Lastly, we have to go with Capitol City, which is miles better than the Fragment East and Fragment West POIs we have in World's Edge today. Without the lava fissure dividing up the city, the original POI had a wide array of buildings that were all great to land on.
