The Firing Range is a hugely important map in Apex Legends, especially after the improvements that arrived back in Season 17.

Everyday thousands of players head into the Firing Range to refine their gun skill, movement, and Legend mastery before they hop into a competitive match.

However, there's a mystery in the Firing Range that still hasn't been solved, and it revolves around a strange door that players can interact with.

Recently, the door has been getting a lot of attention and the community are desperate to know what's inside.

User DisposableCarapace has ignited an investigation on the Apex Legends subreddit into the mysterious Firing Range door.

While it may seem insignificant at first, the locked entrance is interesting as it's one-of-a-kind and resembles no other doorway in the game. Not only that, when a player approaches the door, they're given the chance to "Interact" with it. Unfortunately, no one has figured out how to open it just yet.

Despite this, a dedicated Reddit user did interact with the door as every Legend, and while most of them said nothing, others had some interesting responses. According to them, Vantage acted scared, Pathfinder was excited, and finally Loba seemed to appear as if a choice was about to be "forced upon her."

This indicates that the door could be related to the lore in some way, or Respawn may have plans to use the location for a future event. This wouldn't be the first time the devs have planted easter eggs in the game to get players excited.

It's all well and good seeing a picture of the mysterious door, but it's a lot more fun to go visit the location in-game yourself.

So, simply load into the Firing Range and head directly east towards the agility course. Follow the course to the edge of the map and you should see the strange doorway.

Test out some of the theories above and see what responses you get with different Legends, as who knows, you could be the person to finally crack the lock.
