Map Rotation Changes

In season 20, Respawn Entertainment made significant adjustments to the map rotation. Previously, only a select number of maps were featured in the pubs and ranked rotation each season. However, starting in season 16, Respawn introduced a dynamic map rotation system. Instead of playing the same map for the entire split, three maps now rotate rapidly at a time. In ranked mode, the rotation occurs every 24 hours, while in pubs, it happens roughly every hour.

Season 20 Map Rotation

Here is the map rotation for Apex Legends season 20 across all game modes:

  • Trios, Duos, and Ranked:
    • World's Edge
    • Storm Point
    • Olympus

Season 20 brought a significant change to World's Edge, with the introduction of a new exhibit in the Museum. This exhibit explores the origins of the Apex Games and offers high-tier loot, interactable exhibits, and Easter eggs. Additionally, Olympus returns to the standard map rotation after two seasons, replacing King's Canyon in both standard and ranked modes.

Mixtape Map Rotation

Season 20 introduces the Thunderdome map to the Mixtape playlist. This is the largest map added to the playlist and offers three main lanes and three levels of elevation, allowing for diverse strategies in Control, Gun Run, and Team Deathmatch game modes. To celebrate the return of this fan favorite location, Thunderdome will be the sole playable map in the Mixtape playlist for the first week of the season, before returning to the standard three-map rotation on Feb. 19.


Apex Legends season 20, Breakout, brings exciting changes to the map rotation. With the introduction of the remastered Mixtape map and updates to the Museum on World's Edge, players can enjoy new experiences and discover the origins of the Apex Games. Whether playing in Trios, Duos, Ranked, or the Mixtape playlist, there are diverse maps and gameplay options to explore. Don't miss out on the action and start playing season 20 now!
