Apex Legends Characters Guide
Below we have listed all the characters that are in the game, with their special abilities and their basic background details of each Legend.
Bloodhound – Technological Tracker
Bloodhound is known across the Outlands as one of the greatest game hunters the Frontier has ever seen – and that’s about all anyone knows. Their identity is a mystery wrapped in layers of rumors: they are fabulously wealthy, a bloodthirsty murderer, a Goliath whisperer, a former slave, half bat, and a dozen other things depending on who’s doing the whispering.
Passive Ability – Tracker: Can see tracks left behind by enemies to find clues.
Tactical Ability – Eye of the Allfather: Briefly reveal Enemies, Traps, and clues through all the structures in front of you.
Ultimate Ability – Beast of the Hunt: Transform into the ultimate hunter. Enhances your sense, allowing you to see cold tracks and move faster.
Gibraltar – Shielded Fortress
Gibraltar is a gentle giant with a wild side. The son of two SARAS (Search and Rescue Association of Solace) volunteers, he has always been skilled at getting others out of dangerous situations that are common in the Outlands. However, he only began to understand the value of protecting others when he and his boyfriend stole his father’s motorcycle, took it on a joyride, and got trapped by a deadly mudslide. His parents saved them, and his father lost an arm in the process. Gibraltar has never forgotten that sacrifice and has devoted his life to helping those in need.
Passive Ability – Gun Shield: Aiming down sights deploys a gun shield that blocks incoming fire.
Tactical Ability – Dome of Protection: Throw down a dome-shield that blocks attacks for 15 seconds.
Ultimate Ability – Defensive Bombardment: Call in a concentrated mortar strike on a position you mark with smoke.
Lifeline – Combat Medic
Ajay Che, aka Lifeline, isn’t someone you would expect to find in the Apex Games. Once the child of wealthy war profiteers, she left home when she learned of the damage her family had caused and enlisted in the Frontier Corps, a humanitarian organization that aids Frontier communities in need. She’s since devoted her life to helping others and joined the Apex Games to fund the Frontier Corps with her winnings.
Passive Ability – Combat Medic: Revive knocked down teammates faster while protected by a shield wall. Healing items are used 25% faster.
Tactical Ability – D.O.C Heal Drone: The Drone of Compassion (DOC) automatically heals those near it over time.
Ultimate Ability – Care Package: Call in a droppod full of high quality defensive gear.
Pathfinder – Forward Scout
Pathfinder is the picture of optimism, despite his circumstances. A MRVN (Mobile Robotic Versatile eNtity) modified to specialize in location scouting and surveying, he booted up decades ago in an abandoned laboratory with no idea who created him or why. With only his MRVN designation to hint at his identity, Pathfinder set off in search of his creator.
Passive Ability – Insider Knowledge: Scan a survey beacon to reveal the ring’s next location.
Tactical Ability – Grappling Hook: Grapple to get to out-of-reach places quickly.
Ultimate Ability – Zipline Gun: Creates a zipline for everyone to use.
Wraith – Interdimensional Skirmisher
Wraith is a whirlwind fighter, able to execute swift and deadly attacks and manipulate spacetime by opening rifts in the fabric of reality — but she has no idea how she got that way. Years ago, she woke up in an IMC Detention Facility for the Mentally Ill with no memory of her life before. She also began hearing a distant voice whispering in her mind that would keep her awake for days on end. Despite nearly driving her insane, once she started to listen and trust it, the voice helped her harness her newfound power of void manipulation and escape the facility.
Passive Ability – Voices from the Void: You hear a voice when danger approaches. As Far as you can tell, it’s on your side.
Tactical Ability – Into the Void: Reposition quickly through the safety of the ‘void’ space, avoiding all damage.
Ultimate Ability – Dimensional Rift: Link 2 locations with portals for 60 seconds.
Bangalore – Professional Soldier
Born into a military family where she, her parents, and her four older brothers all served in the IMC Armed Forces, Bangalore has been an exceptional soldier since she was young. She was top of her class at the IMC Military Academy and the only cadet who could take apart a Peacekeeper, equip it with a Precision Choke hop-up, and put it back together in under twenty seconds – blindfolded.
Passive Ability – Double Time: Taking fire while sprinting makes you move faster for a brief time.
Tactical Ability – Smoke Launcher: Fire a high velocity smoke canister that explodes into a small wall on impact.
Ultimate Ability – Rolling Thunder: Call in an artillery strike that slowly creeps across the landscape.
Caustic – Toxic Trapper
Before there was Caustic, a scientist named Alexander Nox worked at Humbert Labs, the Frontier’s leading manufacturer of pesticide gases. With a glut of pesticides needed to protect the growing Frontier colonies’ crops, Humbert Labs was constantly on the hunt for better and stronger formulas. Nox was one of their brightest scientists and worked day and night developing new gases. But to make sure they worked, he needed to test them on more than just inert tissue: he needed something living.
Passive Ability – Nox Vision: You gain threat vision on enemies moving through your gas.
Tactical Ability – Nox Gas Trap: Place up to 6 canisters that release deadly Nox gas when shot or triggered by enemies.
Ultimate Ability – Nox Gas Grenade: Blanket a large area in Nox gas.
Mirage – Holographic Trickster
Mirage is the kind of guy who likes to stand out. The youngest of four brothers, he perfected the art of fooling around to get attention. The one thing he took seriously was Holo-Pilot technology: introduced to the illusion-creating tech by his engineer mother, he poured over the mechanisms and learned all he could about them. Even when his brothers went MIA during the Frontier War, Mirage and his mother continued to develop holo devices, and the work brought them closer.
Passive Ability – Encore!: Automatically drop a decoy and cloak for 5 seconds when knocked down.
Tactical Ability – Psyche Out: Send out a holographic decoy to confuse enemy.
Ultimate Ability – Vanishing Act: Mirage deploys a team of decoys to distract enemies, while he cloaks.
