The Iron Crown, Apex Legends’ latest in-game event, is here with a brand new section of the map called the Gauntlet. There’s even an event that sends players there. To complete the challenge, players must go through Octane’s Fire Gauntlet Ring while wearing armor.
Since the Gauntlet Region is a new addition to Apex Legends, here’s a preview of the map to show you exactly where you’ll need to land to complete this challenge.
Apex Legends Gauntlet Ring of Fire position
The ring sits directly in the center of the Gauntlet. It’s flamboyant and it shouldn’t be too hard to spot. All you have to do to complete the challenge is to jump through the center of it.
For your convenience, two ramps surround the ring. At the top of each ramp is a spot where you can pick up the loot, including armor, which you’ll need to have equipped before you go through the ring. While this might sound like an odd requirement, it is very likely to be added to ensure that you cannot fly directly through the ring from the drop ship.
At the bottom of each ramp is an Octane Jump Pad that will send you through the ring if you slide into it. So it’s pretty easy to get through the ring as long as you can get to one of the ramps. The bad news: Since the entire Gauntlet region is new to the map, it’s likely to be very busy during the Iron Crown event, so there will be plenty of other people there.
While some Apex Legends players know you have a challenge ahead, others probably won’t be as kind and shoot you on the spot like the rest of the map. Complete the challenge soon after landing, when other players might be distracted, or take out all of your opponents before trying to jump through the rings.
