In the Battle Royale shooter Apex Legends you play in a team that consists of three out of nine different legends or heroes. Each legend has a total of three abilities, of which you use two active and one passive.
The legends can be combined depending on the style of playing a team and thus bring a lot of momentum into the game. In this article you will see in several lists which heroes are there and which skills you can use.
We also give tips on how to use appropriate abilities. For Apex Legends, you can access abilities by using the Q (Tactic Ability) and Y (Ultimate Ability) keys by default.
The passive ability should always keep in mind and adjust your playing style. Once used skills recharge. You can use legends skills during a round several times.
For example, the healer Lifeline can drop a drone to heal herself and teammates. As a Secondary / Ultimate Ability, you can summon a Reservoir that contains mostly armor, healing, and weapon gadgets.
As a passive ability, Lifeline can revive players 25 percent faster than other legends. Anyone who has an open eye for the health of his mates in the game and should be on the spot in case of an emergency is thus clear. On the next page all legends and their abilities follow in Apex Legends.
Additional tip: Collect Ultimate Accelerator and apply it. These shorten the regeneration time of the secondary ability by 20 percent
Update March 20, 2019: On March 19, the Battle Pass appeared and the starting signal for Season 1 fell. With new skins, badges, trackers and last but not least a new legend it goes into the fight. Octane completes the field. His skills and tips for playing can be found on a separate page.
Tactic Ability: Eye of the All-Father
Short scan for enemies
Ultimate Ability: Lord of the Hunt
Temporarily more speed and sharper senses
Passive ability: tracker
Bloodhound is well used as a scout. He finds by ambient scan more easily the opponents (visible to all team members), reads tracks and uses if necessary its higher speed and the sharper senses, in order to better identify opponents in the fight.
Tactic Ability: Guard Dome
15-second shield with increased radius
Ultimate Ability: Defensive Bombardment
Passive Ability: Weapon Shield
Shield when sighting
Gibraltar is stuck in and out. As a classic tank, you can go to battles ahead. Use the shield to protect your comrades and yourself. Although Gibraltar works slower than other legends, according to the developers, this is due only to the relatively slow animation of the arms.
Tactic Ability: DDM Healing Drone
Healing Drone for lifeline and other players (including opponents) in the vicinity
Ultimate Ability: Care Package
Gets a landing capsule with defensive equipment
Passive Ability: Combat Medic
Invigorates players faster (plus a protective shield) and consumes healing items 25 percent faster
Lifeline provides healing and can revive or raise downcast Mates faster. As the Ultimate Ability, it calls you a supply pod that contains high-quality armor items or large medi-packs and protective shield cells. Use the accelerators to call regular care packages.
Tactic Ability: Climbing hook
Gripping and climbing hooks
Ultimate ability: zip-line thrower
Tighten a pull rope for everyone
Passive ability: insider knowledge
Can display the next position of the ring
Pull ropes and balloons help on the last-minute journey into the ring zone. If these are not available, the Pathfinder robot will help. You can also use it like Wraith to get yourself and your team on high ground or other hard-to-reach areas. So you can spy on opponents and play from superior position.
Tactic Ability: Into the Void
Teleportation for a few meters
Ultimate Ability: Dimensionstor
Make a wormhole for 60 seconds
Passive Ability: Voices from nowhere
Better hearing for opponents
Wraith teleports a few meters further or transports the team to remote places with a wormhole. This is perfect for gaining advantage in skirmishes with a quick change of position. The good ear is also suitable for use as reconnaissance – for example, if in the next area on the way to the ring zone lurking opponents.
Tactic Ability: Smoke Launcher
Throws smoke grenades
Ultimate Ability: Thunder Raging
Passive Ability: Run
Higher movement speed during shelling
Bangalore is the stealth expert with cavalry. In the smoke he and his comrades can flee or fight to critical positions. If enemies are spotted, Bangalore calls an artillery strike. It will also help with sudden firefights if Bangalore flees quickly. Be careful, however, that the own team comes after.
Tactic Ability: Noxgas Trap
Set up gas canister traps
Ultimate Ability: Noxgas Grenade
Passive Ability: Nox Vision
Enemies experience hallucinations on contact with gas
Caustic and Mirage must be cleared with points at the beginning or buy Apex Coins with the in-game currency (about 10 Euro each). Caustic is the right hero or legend in literally tight and dangerous situations. In underground catacombs or narrow canyons, the gas helps to keep the enemy on their toes while the comrades work their way up and clean up their flanks. Gas can be helpful as a wall in the escape, or even for the encirclement of opponents.
Tactic Ability: Freaky
Can project a holographic double
Ultimate Ability: Disengagement
Make holograms of yourself and then flee invisibly
Passive Ability: Encore!
5-second hologram appears when knocked down by an opponent
Mirage is the master of deception. You can use this legend to confuse your opponents. With the Q key, Mirage sends a hologram away. You can do this, for example, to divert the fire away for a short time. The Y button suddenly puts ten Mirage characters in place. The real is invisible and can escape. The invisibility bonus also helps with the attack.
