All Unreleased Apex Legends Characters

Here’s a list of all the unreleased and leaked Apex Legends Characters coming for the next several seasons of the game.

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

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.

Blisk’s abilities:

  • 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

Valk is currently only known as the “Soaring Aviator”. Currently not much is known about her besides some concept art and abilities.

Valk’s 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.

Jericho

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.

Jericho’s abilities:

  • 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.

Firebug

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.

Firebug’s abilities:

  • 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

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.

Husaria’s abilities:

  • 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.

Prophet/Seer

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

Nomad

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.

Nomad’s abilities:

  • 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

Immortal is a shield support legend. The image above is a leaked image from the files of the game.

Immortal’s abilities:

  • 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

Downfall’s description is a “Populist Pyromaniac”. He is believed to be in the late stages of development.

Downfall’s abilities:

  • 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

Reckoner is described as a “Self-Sacrificing Romantic” and is in early-stage development. We don’t imagine he will release anytime soon.

Reckoner’s abilities

  • 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

Conduit has no images or any information besides his code. He appears to be an “Overshield Conductor” pointing to him being a support character.

Conduit’s abilities

  • 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.

Fuse

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.

All Kings Canyon map changes in Apex Legends Season 8

Kings Canyon has returned to Apex Legends in Season 8 with major changes, so we break down everything new on the classic map.

Published

kings canyon apex legends season 8

After being devastated by powerful explosives, Kings Canyon has returned in Apex Legends Season 8, but not as we know it.

In the launch trailer for Apex Legends Season 8, the arrival of the new Legend, Fuse, was disrupted by his rival, Maggie, blowing up the Apex Games.

However, the show must go on, and Apex Legends will be returning to the classic Kings Canyon map in Season 8 but with significant changes. Much of the map has been reshaped, and there are new landmarks to explore, Explosive Holds to loot, and Observation Towers to climb.

Here we break down all of the significant map changes for Kings Canyon in Apex Legends Season 8.

New Kings Canyon locations

Kings Canyon is rarely favored over the two other maps, World’s Edge and Olympus, but with the new season, Respawn Entertainment are hoping to change that.

Gone is the annoying orange tint plastered over Kings Canyon, the map has now been made far more visually appealing with its removal. In a blog post, Apex Legends devs detailed everything new added to Kings Canyon.

Crash Site

Apex Legends crash site

A massive gunship has crash-landed in Kings Canyon, opening up an entirely new area of the map. The door to Artillery has been burst open, which has opened up a pathway to this new location. Crash Site itself will have the ship in the middle, which is covered in scaffolding, giving a “jungle gym” feel to the location.

This crash has spilled toxic waste into the water supplies, so ECHO (Ecological Cleanup and Hazard Outreach) have set up camps around the map to clean up the mess.

The tunnel by Artillery has also been burst open, which leads to Crash Site as well as expanding the northern regions of the map.

Respawn Entertainment hopes that these new areas will “create all-new gameplay scenarios as teams explore the Northern section of Kings Canyon.”

Spotted Lakes

The explosions that hit the Kings Canyon map have completely wiped Slum Lakes off the map and Spotted Lakes has taken its place, “which attributes its name to the unusual spots found in the flooded, contaminated waters.” This location has a dam in the middle with an ECHO camp on either side.

It was previously difficult to rotate in and out of Slum Lakes, but the explosions have opened up new ways to get around. Part of the mountainside was destroyed, uncovering ancient leviathan bones and revealing a new pathway.

Explosive Holds

Also new to Kings Canyon are Explosive Holds. These work the same as loot vaults on the other maps which contain a plethora of high-tier loot if you can get inside.

Check out our guide for everything you need to know about these Explosive Holds and how to open them.

Observation Towers

Apex Legends observation towers

Inside the ECHO camps are all-new Observation Towers. These are sniper’s nests that must be activated for them to be raised above the ground. These towers will be high risk, high reward with all players nearby being able to see and hear you activate it.

As long as you’re careful not to get sniped, you’ll be able to use the significant height advantage to control the area.

Further Kings Canyon map changes

In a bid to create more diversity and reduce third-partying on the map, Respawn have made several more changes to Kings Canyon.

The Farm, which they describe as a “sweaty chokepoint,” has been removed to allow players to move through this area without having to worry about campers. When we get to fully explore the map, Respawn have confirmed that several more locations have either been changed or removed.

Once the new version of Kings Canyon releases on February 2, we’ll know just how well these changes have improved the classic map.

How to open Kings Canyon Explosive Holds in Apex Legends Season 8

Respawn Entertainment have added new Explosive Holds filled with rare guns and ammo in Apex Legends Season 8, so here’s how to open them.

Explosive Holds in Apex Legends Season 8

With Apex Legends Season 8 just around the corner, Respawn Entertainment have confirmed plenty of map changes for the battle royale, such as new Explosive Holds filled with powerful gear on Kings Canyon. 

Apex Legends Season 8, Mayhem, is scheduled to drop on February 2, and we can expect a ton of exciting new content in the new update. This includes the new Legend, Fuse, the 30-30 Repeater, and various other features.

One of the most notable new additions is the reshaped Kings Canyon. Fuse’s arrival was sabotaged by Maggie, who then set off explosives across the map which damaged the location. The upcoming Season also will also bring other new map changes.

The Kings Canyon Explosive Holds provide a great looting opportunity, since they’re filled with powerful weapons and gear, so here’s how you can access them for yourself.

How to open Apex Legends Explosive Holds in Season 8

Respawn stated in an official blog post that “when the ship came crashing down, several mobile armories that were being stored in its cargo bay were lost and scattered across Kings Canyon.”

This means there are rare guns, ammo, and useful attachments that are ripe for the picking. Although these Explosive Holds require security clearance to open them, you can also access them with some well-placed ordnance.

Here’s how you can open the Explosive Holds in Kings Canyon:

  1. Jump and land near the Explosive Holds in King Canyon.
  2. Collect grenades from your surroundings.
  3. Throw a an explosive item at the door, like a Frag Grenade, Thermite or Arc Star.
  4. Enter via the new opening that the explosives will create for you.

That sums up everything you need to do in order to access these locations. You won’t face too much trouble finding them either, as they will be dotted around the map, so you can directly land near one after you jump at the start of the match.

Fuse in Apex Legends

The Explosive Holds will replace the bunkers that were around the map, and will also have a lot in common with the loot vaults on Worlds Edge. However, you’re not going to be the only one looking for them, so, be ready for a fight.

Other players will also have the idea to land near these since they’ll also want some quality gear at the start of the match. For that reason, you’ll have to make sure that you have sufficient shields and weapons to defend yourself.

Despite the inherent danger, it’s still worth raiding these Explosive Holds for some impressive gear that can help you come out on top. We haven’t learned how many of these can be found on the map, but we’ll update you once we do.

Apex Legends Season 8, Mayhem, is set to be released on February 2, 2021. This comes just before February 4’s second anniversary of Apex Legends, so expect this season to be one of the most content-rich.

On January 26, Respawn Entertainment premiered the gameplay trailer for Season 8, which showcases new map changes, upcoming cosmetics, as well as new Legend Fuse’s abilities in-game.

In this1980s action-movie themed trailer, we get a taste of what to expect from Apex Legends Season 8.

New Legend Fuse

This trailer introduces the new Legend, Fuse, who we have already seen through the ‘Stories from the Outlands’ trailer and the Season 8 launch trailer.

Now, we get a look at his abilities and finisher in action. As showcased by what we’ve seen of him so far, Fuse deals with explosives. He shoots what he calls a ‘knuckle cluster’ which appears to temporarily stun the enemies.

His abilities have previously been leaked, but we’ll know his kit for sure when Apex Legends Season 8 releases.

Kings Canyon Map Changes

Season 8 brings Apex Legends back to the classic Kings Canyon map, but with some significant changes.

Following Maggie’s attack on the Apex Games in the Season 8 launch trailer, Kings Canyon has been destroyed. In the new gameplay trailer, we see the obliterated remnants of the very first Apex Legends map. Explosions have created new areas, and many buildings you have come to know and love have been blown apart.

Season 8 Battle Pass

The trailer gave us a taste of the new items coming in the Season 8 Battle Pass. It’s confirmed that we’ll be getting new outfits for both Bangalore and Lifeline, as well as a new Legendary skin for the Longbow DMR.

Check out Charlie Intel when Season 8 drops for a rundown of the full Battle Pass.

New 30-30 Repeater Rifle

With Apex Legends Season 8 comes the new 30-30 Repeater Rifle. This single-action repeater appears to be capable of killing enemies in only a couple of shots and can be used at almost any range.

The trailer also showed the rifle being charged up for a more powerful shot, meaning it either has a secondary fire mode or can be fitted with a Hop-Up.

Gold Magazines

The trailer showcases the new Gold rarity magazines which come as part of Season 8. While you have these magazines equipped, your weapon will automatically reload while holstered. As they are Gold rarity, expect these magazines to be ultra-rare.

Once the new season releases on February 2, check back on Charlie Intel for everything new in Apex Legends Season 8.
