Respawn has put a neat little Golden Nessie in the Firing Range very hard to find. Here’s how to get it.

Apex Legends Season 17 Arsenal introduced many new features in the game, including a brand new reworked Firing Range in the terrain of Kings Canyon. Respawn improved tons of new functionalities that the previous Firing Range lacked.

The new Firing Range is really massive compared to the previous one. Not only is it huge, but also full of useful features. From improving your aim to learning new movement mechanics, the new Firing Range has everything you need.

Respawn even stepped up their Firing Range game by including new easter eggs here and there. You can find Nessies all over the maps, hiding in plain sight. The developers also put a cheeky Assassin’s Creed easter egg in there, giving you a full animated view of the Firing Range from above.

Currently, there are 13 total findable Nessies in the Firing Range. 10 of them are Green Nessies, scattered throughout the map. However, 3 of them: Golden, Pink, and Blue, do not spawn on the map right off the bat. You need to activate them by completing some hidden objectives in the Firing Range.

How to Find Golden Nessie in Firing Range

Unlike the Green ones, the Golden Nessie doesn’t spawn when you enter the Firing Range. You must visit every POI in the Firing Range, as well as use the Charge Tower to make the Golden Nessie spawn.

There are a total of 8 POIs in the new Firing Range. You have to go to every one of those. The players who found the easter egg shared that everyone must also use the Charge Tower to make the Golden Nessie spawn.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to finding the Golden Nessie in Firing Range:

Step 1: Use the Charge Tower

Although it’s not necessary to use the Charge Tower at the very beginning, having your Ultimate ready at the very beginning will make your visit to every POI easier. It is also recommended that you use a movement character like Pathfinder, Octane, and Valkyrie. It’ll save you some time.

The Charge Tower is located at the left side of the Firing Range right after the slide from spawn.

Step 2: Visit all POIs

After using the Charge Tower, you must visit every available POIs in the new Firing Range. There are a total of 8 POIs in the new Firing Range. You don’t have to follow any particular order while going through every POI in Firing Range.

When you reach a POI, the name of the POI will show in the top left corner. That’s how you can be sure that you’ve visited a particular POI. However, for your convenience, we’ll list every POI with name, picture, and location, so you can find them easily on the map.

Raven’s Nest

Raven’s Nest is located right above the exit of the main spawn location. Although it is the nearest POI, it is also very easy to miss as it is out of the regular Field of View. You can take the Ziplines to reach there, or you can use Horizon, Pathfinder, or Valkyrie to easily reach the Raven’s Nest faster.

Firing Range

Firing Range

Firing Range is the easiest POI to find. This POI is filled with guns, weapons, attachments, gears, and armors. Firing Range is located right outside the spawn just after the slide. You can’t miss it.

Agility Course

Agility Course is one of the biggest POIs on the map. There is a huge banner right on the Agility Course building. So, you won’t miss it. It is located on the right side of the slide from the spawn.

Tech Tunnel is a trickier POI to locate for newcomers. This POI is hiding right under the Agility Course. There are multiple small entrances all around the Agility Course.

Training Grounds

Training Grounds

Training Grounds is the biggest POI on the map. It is located right in the middle. You can go anywhere near that area, and you’ll be done visiting the Training Grounds. However, make sure that the name of the POI pops up to be double sure you’ve visited the place.

The Belfry

The Belfry

The Belfry is located at the top of the tower, right in the middle of the Training Grounds. You can use Valkyrie, Horizon, or Pathfinder to reach there fast. You can also use the newly added Evac Tower or the given Jump Tower to reach the top of The Belfry.

Wolf’s Peak

Wolf's Peak

After you’ve reached The Belfry, it’ll be a good idea to go to the Wolf’s Peak POI. Wolf’s Peak is the highest point in the Firing Range that is not out of bounds. You can easily reach there using the Pathfinder Zipline, provided you have it.

You can also use the Evac Tower or Valkyrie Ultimate and land on the top of the rocky mountain. If you’re not using a movement character, don’t worry, you can take your time and parkour your way up the mountain.

There’s also an Assassin’s Creed easter egg hidden in Wolf’s Peak. Check out this article to learn how to activate the Assassin’s Creed easter egg.

The Pit

The Pit Firing Range

The Pit is located left-hand side of the Firing Range right after the slide. This is the place where players can have intense aim duels. Get down to The Pit to visit the POI.

Step 3: Go back to the main spawn

After you’ve used the Charge Tower and visited all 8 POIs on the map, return to the main spawn, meaning the middle one. Now go back to where the crates are located. A Golden Nessie should spawn behind the last crate. If you don’t find the Golden Nessie, wait for 1 – 5 minutes, as some players said that it takes some time before the Nessie spawns there.

Note: Sometimes, the Golden Nessie takes longer to spawn. However, this is the only known method to spawn the Golden Nessie right now. So, if your Golden Nessie is not spawning even after waiting for some time, repeat the whole process again. And hopefully, this time, the Golden Nessie will spawn at the mentioned place.
