Apex Legends is a battle royale that bases its gameplay on the unique skills of playable heroes. Called Legends, these characters take the traditional Battle Royale experience to the next step thanks to their skills.
All eight legends have three abilities each: passive, tactical, and Ultimate. The passive ability is always active and requires no player management. The tactical abilities are activated by the player and offer many types of special interactions and various gameplay advantages.
Finally, there are Ultimate abilities that will be familiar if you've ever played Overwatch, League of Legends or DOTA. Once it's fully charged, you can choose to unleash a skill that's much more powerful than ordinary ones. Ultimate gives you and your teammates a significant advantage.
Below are all the abilities for each Legend currently available. As more Legends are introduced, we will update this article.
