All of the unreleased/leaked Apex Legends Characters in one post.
Apex Legends is currently in Season 7, but that doesn’t mean we won’t see more Legends soon. Each new season Respawn adds another Legend, so plenty should be added soon. Let’s recap all the upcoming Apex Legends characters that have been leaked so far.
As with all leaks, take them with a grain of salt. Any development back-end for Apex Legends is subject to change at any time. Some characters may never be added or entirely reworked.
These leaks are based off a reddit post leak, showcasing several unreleased Legends.
Blisk originally appeared in the Titanfall games and was the first Apex Predator players were introduced to. He is the leader of the Apex Legends, so naturally, him being in the game should strike regular Apex players by no surprise.
- Passive: Interrogation – Executing an enemy will reveal the location of their allies for 10 seconds.
- Tactical: Throwing Knife – Deals 20 damage and marks the target. Killing a marked target rewards double credits.
- Ultimate: Payday – Squad kills award credits. Spend credits on powerful supplies.
Valk is currently only known as the “Soaring Aviator”. Currently not much is known about her besides some concept art and abilities.
- Passive: VTOL Jets – Hold jump to initiate VTOL Jets.
- Tactical: Cluster Missile – Fire a rocket that explodes multiple times.
- 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.
Similar to Valk, not much is known about Jericho. The only information known can be based on his ability set, which suggests he will be a large character like Gibraltar.
- Passive: Ballistic Shield Protection – Your Ballistic Shield protects your back when you are not actively using it.
- Ability one (potential Tactical): Ballistic Shield – A full-body shield that protects you from incoming fire.
- Ability two (potential Ultimate): Shield-Breaker Javelins – Throw two electrically charged javelins that burn through enemy body shields.
Nothing is currently known about Firebug besides his abilities. Players are confused about which one of these characters is Firebug or Prophet. (Prophet will be talked about later). Additionally, the name Skunner also popped up to make things even more confusing.
We do know that this character will be a trap based Legend though.
- Passive: Light Step: You are not slowed by debris traps and do not leave traversal evidence for trackers.
- Tactical: Debris Trap: Drop a pile of debris that slows and damages enemies when they move through it.
- Ultimate: Schiltrom Barrier Grenade: Instantly create a spiked barrier made from rapid hardening resin.
Husaria’s nickname is “The Hard Breacher” and for good reasoning. Her entire kit is designed around CQC, which will make her love at first sight for aggressive players.
- 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.
- Tactical: Flashbang – Throw a grenade that briefly blinds and deafens opponents
- Ultimate: Concussive breaching charge – Plant a breaching charge that fires a sonic wave through walls to destroy traps, force open doors and disorient enemies.
Players are unsure if the image above is Prophet, but it’s a solid guess. But at least we know his full ability set.
Prophet / Seer’s abilities:
- Passive: Sniper Training – Increased accuracy while ADS and starts game with a scope
- Tactical: Spotter Sight – Scans the environment for enemies and gathers information on targets found
- Ultimate: Triple Tap – Equips a silenced sniper rifle with three shots
Based on info from That1MiningGuy, Nomad is almost fully completed in the game files. The above image may not be what he looks like come final release.
- Passive: Packmule – “Nomad and his teammates have additional backpack space.”
- Tactical: Loot Compass – “Follow the loot compass to the nearest item.”
- Ultimate: Crafting Table – “Place a crafting table down. Scrap salvageable material and purchase items.”
Immortal is a shield support legend. The image above is a leaked image from the files of the game.
- Passive: Hard to Kill – When you get down you can revive yourself.
- Tactical: Shield Charger / Teardown – Unleash a cloud of Nanites to charge your team’s shields OR Hit a target with a cloud of nanites to kill their shields for a short period of time.
- Ultimate: Rise of the Pheonix – Restores your health and shields to full and gives nearby teammates 30 seconds of self-revive. Takes 8 seconds to charge.
Downfall’s description is a “Populist Pyromaniac”. He is believed to be in the late stages of development.
- Passive: Fire Walker – You automatically extinguish fire by walking through it. Burning teammates will be extinguished when they move close to you.
- Tactical: Fire Sale – Drop a box of four Molotovs to anyone in your squad can pick up and throw.
- Ultimate: Reign of Fire – Fire a rocket-propelled firebomb.
Reckoner is described as a “Self-Sacrificing Romantic” and is in early-stage development. We don’t imagine he will release anytime soon.
- Passive: Shield Blast — Upon breaking shields will emit an explosion, damaging nearby enemies.
- Tactical: Shield Stealer — Fire an energy beam that drains enemy shields and charges your own.
- Ultimate: Gravity Orb — Throw a slow moving gravity orb that bends the trajectory of nearby attacks.
Conduit has no images or any information besides his code. He appears to be an “Overshield Conductor” pointing to him being a support character.
- Tactical Arc Flash: Deals damage to Conduit’s shields to give targeted allies an overshield.
- Passive Capacitance: Conduit’s base health is 50 health and 50 shield, instead of 100 health. Conduit gradually regenerates shield over time.
- Ultimate Short Circuit: Conduit channels their shields into a giant arc ball that flies across the battlefield, stealing shields from enemies.
Legends With Little Info
Ash is a character from Titanfall 2 who has previously appeared in the Season 5 of Apex Legends. No information is known about her possible Apex Legends character.
Nothing is known about Fuse besides his original appearance on a leaked Apex Legends screenshot. Fuse could very well not be the official name come launch.
Apex Legends update 1.82 patch notes: Pathfinder cooldown & Crypto fix
Respawn has released a new 1.82 update for Apex Legends players and we have all the details concerning the latest patch notes.
The Apex Legends Patch 1.82 update has arrived and it has brought some much-needed fixes for some major bugs, including Crypto’s drone crashing the game and Pathfinder’s broken cooldown.
All of these brought fixes for some of the major bugs in Apex Legends, and now the v1.82 update will be focusing on issues like Crypto’s broken drone and Pathfinder’s 30-second cooldown in Arenas.
Apex Legends patch 1.82 Pathfinder cooldown and Crypto fix
One of the major fixes in this Apex Legends update went to Pathfinder. This character kept facing a constant 30-second grapple cooldown in Arenas, regardless of the distance at which it’s used.

The developers have addressed that issue and also brought a fix for Crypto. This Legend’s drone kept crashing games when players flew it into the map room on King’s Canyon.
Since Crypto is one of the Legends with the lowest pickrate, it’s vital to make sure that he doesn’t have any game-breaking bugs and glitches that will drive away players from choosing him.
Apex Legends update 1.82 patch notes
The developers also implemented fixes for smaller quality-of-life problems, like animated banners crashing the game, and the Dropship that revives dead players having no audio while it was overhead.
Here are all the fixes in the Apex Legends 1.82 patch notes:
- We’ve resolved an issue that caused players to be randomly unreadied while matchmaking in Ranked
- Fixed a couple of issues that were causing animated banner poses to cause hangs or crashes
- Improved protection against DDoS attacks
- Fixed audio and rendering issues with respawn ships
- Fixed an issue with using Crypto’s drone in the Map Room
- Fixed an issue with Pathfinder having a constant 30s grapple cooldown regardless of distance in Arenas
- Pathfinder Beacons Scanned tracker now updates correctly
- Fixed melee and spin-up exploits related to mobile Sheila
- The raven in Bloodhound’s Niflheim Hundr skin will now correctly show as white in the lobby
- Stability fixes and memory optimizations
While some of these may initially seem less important than others, the developers need to ensure that the battle royale title is functioning properly before Season 11 goes live in November.

Apex Legends player discovers Valkyrie trick to reduce rocket cooldown
One Apex Legends player has a discovered a trick to reduce the cooldown time of Valkyrie’s rocket tactical attack.
Valkyrie is a Legend that is capable of blowing up her opponents with rockets, and one Apex Legends player has discovered a trick that lets them spam her tactical attack.
Valkyrie was added in Season 9, and she has become popular because of her flying abilities and tactical attack.
Valkyrie can blow up her enemies with rockets, and this attack comes with a 30 second cooldown. However, a few players have found a trick that brings down her cooldown to 6 seconds in Season 10.
Reddit user Particular_Mind7785 shared a trick to let players fire rockets more frequently as Valkyrie with the help of some new technology known as the Ultimate Accelerant.
- Read more: Best PC settings for Apex Legends Season 10
Since Valkyrie’s Tactical cooldown is based on the number of rockets fired at a target, using an Ultimate Accentlant immediately after the ability will bring the cooldown time down to 6 seconds.
While this means that you’ll fire fewer rockets, they will still dish out a similar amount of damage and you’ll be able to fire them more frequently.
A few players noted that this same trick can be replicated with healing items as well. “Works with heals too. Saw a post a while ago. If you time it right you can fire a single rocket with a 2 sec cooldown,” wrote one user.
This trick reduces the radius of the rockets, so you won’t be able to cover a larger area with them.
However, this can still come in handy when fighting a small number of opponents in one spot and help you to break their ranks and split them up as a team to make eliminating enemies much easier.

This article will ultimately help you understand whether your PC will be able to run Apex Legends and whether your PC can handle the game at its maximum output.
Get uncapped FPS without enabling V-Sync in Apex Legends
Although most of the streamers you see will have FPS well into the hundreds, you should shoot for at least 60 as this will provide a stable Apex Legends experience with minimal frame drops.
- Open Origin or Steam.
- Right-click Apex Legends in your Game Library and right-click on Apex Legends.
- Select ‘Game Properties’ on Origin or choose ‘Properties’ on Steam
- Head to ‘Game Properties’.
- Visit the Advanced Launch Options on Origin or the General tab on Steam
- Type “+fps_max unlimited” under Command line arguments (Origin) or Launch Options (Steam).
Best Apex Legends graphics settings for low-end hardware
The easiest way to get higher FPS is to turn everything to the lowest possible quality settings, but targeting enemies is more obscure.
- Display Mode – Full Screen
- Aspect Ratio – Native monitor resolution (probably 16:9, 1080p)
- Resolution – Native monitor resolution.
- Field of View – Personal preference
- Color Blind Mode – Personal preference
- V-Sync – Disabled
- Adaptive Resolution FPS Target – Set to 0
- Adaptive Supersampling – Greyed out
- Anti-Aliasing – Off
- Texture Streaming Budget – Medium or lower
- Texture Filtering – Anisotropic 2X
- Ambient Occlusion Quality – Medium or lower
- Sun Shadow Coverage – Low
- Sun Shadow Detail – Low
- Spot Shadow Detail – Low
- Volumetric Lighting – Disabled
- Dynamic Spot Shadows – Disabled
- Model Detail – Medium or lower
- Effects Detail – Medium or lower
- Impact Marks – Medium or lower
- Ragdolls – Medium or lower
Some settings will significantly affect your game’s FPS more than others, such as Ambient Occlusion Quality. Many of these will depend on the power of your rig, graphics card, and VRAM.
While setting everything to low/disabled (except V-Sync) is best for frames in Apex Legends, you can probably set some of these to “medium” if your rig is powerful enough.
Optimize your Discord
Discord is commonly used by Apex Legends to communicate with their teammates in the middle of a match. While it works great, you can further optimize it to improve the FPS on Apex. Here’s what you need to do:
- Open Discord.
- Head to the Settings menu
- Click the Overlay tab and ensure ‘Enable in-game overlay’ is unchecked
You can also turn off Hardware Acceleration, which’s at the bottom of the Appearance tab. This will keep Discord from using your graphics card to accelerate the software’s speed and grant you a few more FPS in-game.
