Fans of the popular battle royale game Apex Legends have been asking Respawn to bring back all the old maps in their original forms.

Respawn has a tendency to nuke some part of the map for a collection event to keep things fresh for players. But in the process of keeping things fresh, they sometimes remove some part of the maps that are often considered to be fan favorites.

On top of that, Respawn also changed the clear blue skies of some of the maps to a more muted color. And some players in the community really prefer the original look. And Skull Town is also a part of the reason why Apex Legends Players want the original Kings Canyon to return. Skull town has been proven to be everyone’s favorite place to drop.

Even some of the developers have explained they had to remove Skull Town from Kings Canyon since all the players would usually flock to the exact drop zone making everything else irrelevant.
