An Apex Legends data miner has revealed a plethora of updates to previously leaked Legends in the code of the in-game files following Patch 3.1 going live – with some characters edging closer to making their debut sooner rather than later.
Blisk, the Elite Mercenary, made his first appearance in Titanfall 2 and then in the intro trailer for Apex. Some fans believe Blisk is too old to enter World’s Edge at this point, and the upcoming Apex character might be his son. Others, however, think his “Elite Mercenary” tag hints at the veteran and not a relative.
When Blisk executes an enemy, he reveals the locations of their allies for 10 seconds.
Tactical ability: Throwing knife
Blisk throws a knife that deals 20 damage and marks the target. Killing a marked target rewards double credits.
Ultimate ability: Payday
Squad kills award credits. Spend credits on powerful supplies. Players will be able to use a selection wheel to decide which powerful supplies they want to buy, costing two, five, or 10 credits.
Husaria received a minor adjustment to their character abilities, with the core of the three abilities remaining the same. However, the Passive Ability (Shotgun Kick) received an update to its description, which added a ‘speed boost.’
– Previous Passive: Shotgun Kick
“A breaching shotgun on your calf that discharges when you melee doors or enemies. Requires shotgun ammo.”
– New Passive: Shotgun Kick
“You have a shotgun on your leg that fires when you melee doors or enemies. Requires shotgun ammo. Using your abilities grants you a brief speed boost.”
– Ultimate ability: Concussive Breaching Charge
Plant a breaching charge that fires a sonic wave through walls to destroy traps, force open doors, and disorient enemies.
Nomad, the Field Crafter, seems to be a support character that provides items, a radar, and even backpack space for his teammates. The legend was initially revealed when one fan theorized that Nomad was responsible for creating Wraith’s armor in her Night Terror skin.
Nomad and his teammates have additional backpack space.
Tactical ability: Loot Compass
Follow the Loot Compass to the nearest item. When there’s no loot available, players will receive a “No loot found” prompt.
Ultimate ability: Crafting Table
Place a crafting table down. Scrap salvageable material and purchase items. Materials that Nomad doesn’t want to use, like ammunition or hop-ups, will be able to be salvaged for other items on the wishlist.
Skunner, the Crafty Trapper, is another potential defensive character to keep Caustic and Wattson company. Very little information on Skunner has been unearthed, suggesting he might be further in character development than any other unreleased legend.
Passive ability: Light Step
You aren’t slowed by debris traps and don’t leave traversal evidence for trackers.
Tactical ability: Debris trap
Drop a pile of debris that slows and damages enemies when they move through it.
Ultimate ability: Schiltrom Barrier Grenade
Instantly create a spiked barrier made from rapidly hardening resin.
Similar to Skunner, not much is known about Rampart, hinting at a much later release date. His tag, Base of Fire, is a military term for a supporting force that provides covering fire to advancing units. In Apex terms, Rampart would likely provide cover fire while aggressive legends, like Octane, push the enemy team.
The character’s lack of description hints that they are still in early development. However, based on the list of abilities, the Legend appears to be an independent mercenary, with a list of soldier–esque traits.
– Previous Ability: Amped Cover
“Builds cover that provides a damage boost to anyone standing near it, can be picked up and moved.”
– New Ability: Amped Cover
“Build cover with an upper barrier that blocks incoming shots and boosts the damage of outgoing shots.”
– Previous Ability: My Friend Maxim
“Places a mounted machine gun that anyone in the squad can use, uses heavy ammo.”
– New Ability: Emplaced HMG
“Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload times.”
– Previous Ability: Gunner
“LMG’s have increased magazine capacity and reload faster.”
– New Ability: Gunner
“Machine guns have increased magazine capacity and reload faster.”
Revenant originally called Blackout in older game files, received the title “Nightmare Simulacrum.” A simulacrum, like Ash from Titanfall 2, is a robot that has the consciousness of a person.
Of all the upcoming Legends released, Revenant’s rumored kit seems the most complex. The simulacrum has two stances that it can switch between, with each form providing a different set of abilities.
Moreover, the Synthetic Nightmare’s second stance (referred to as Shadow Form) appears to have been removed entirely, with one new ability being added in-place:
New Ability: Silence
“Throw a device that disables enemy abilities for 10 seconds.”
Passive ability: Infiltrator
You crouch walk faster and can climb walls higher.
Tactical ability one: Mark for Death
Fire a poison dagger. Press again to reveal the target’s location for up to 60 seconds. The mark is removed if the target heals to full.Players who are hit by Revenant’s mark will have a prompt on their screen that reads, “Something is watching you.”
Rosie has been rumored to be in development since February, meaning that she is one of the more complete Legends yet to make an appearance.The update brought one minor change to her abilities, with the function to remove ‘hidden compartments in loot bins’ being removed.
Previous Passive: Eye for quality
“Rosie can see through walls and can open up hidden compartments in loot bins.”
New Passive: Eye for quality
“Loba (Rosie) can see nearby loot through walls.”
Described as a ‘Soaring Aviator,’ Valk has perhaps received the most significant update out of the list of leaked Legends.
– Previous Passive: Afterburners
“After the initial drop, Valk and her teammates fly faster while skydiving.”
– New Passive: VTOL Jets
“Hold jump to initiate VTOL Jets.”
– Previous Tactical: VTOL Jets
“Hold (button) to hover VTOL jet.”
– New Tactical: Cluster Missile
“Fire a rocket that explodes multiple times.”
– Previous Ultimate: Skyward
“Valk and nearby allies take to the skies after a short countdown.”
– New Ultimate: Skyward
“Press once to prepare for launch. Teammates can interact with Valk to join the launch. Press again to launch into the air and skydive.”
Although the information found in the files is exciting, Respawn hasn’t confirmed any of it, and it’s all subject to change as the characters come closer to their release dates.
