A dataminer believes they know the dates, and order, that Apex Legends’ mysterious new bunkers will become accessible.
Bunkers popped up in Kings Canyon with the arrival of season 5, and though some of us have already been able to explore part of one of them, it looks like we’ll be able to investigate them all sooner rather than later.
Data miner Shrugtal (thanks, Dexerto) shared a map depicting the locations and reported names of the four bunkers (the quest-related bunker has been excluded for now): Terminal Station F-85, Terminal Station W-78, Terminal Station O-240, and Terminal Station L-19.
Big one today.

If correct, the first terminal station, F-85, will “start” to open on 16th June and be fully open by 23rd, with the final bunker open by 14th July.
“Big one today,” they tweeted. “Loot bunker map with release dates, names and big ticket loot spawns. Quest-related bunker not shown.
“First date is start to open, second date is ready to enter. They will eventually all be open.”
Interesting, Shrugtal has gone so far as to indicate what gold items will be hiding at each spot – a gold knockdown shield, Prowler, Sentinel, and Havoc respectively – and opined that the letters of each terminal can be rearranged to spell WOLF – the anglicised name of Loba, of course.
There have been some big changes in Apex Legends recently, from the arrival of new Legend Loba to nerfs and buffs to existing Legends like Mirage and Pathfinder. However, Respawn’s attempts to shake things up haven’t been enough to impact which are our favourite Legends, it seems.
Wraith remains the most popular Legend to use in season five, hitting a usage rate of 27 per cent across all platforms – that makes her three times more popular than the second most used character. Pathfinder and Lifeline come in second and third place with usage rates of 10 per cent and 9 per cent respectively.
Loba’s yet to feature – possibly because she’s still shiny and new – but it doesn’t look good for other late arrivals; Revenant and Crypto languish at the other end of the table with usage rates of just 4 and 3 per cent respectively.
