Season 11 has officially been revealed for Apex Legends, and although information concerning the new Legend has been sparse, new leaks have revealed Ash’s abilities.
A lot was revealed in the Stories from the Outlands trailer regarding the lore and character of Ash, however, not a lot has been revealed regarding her abilities.
This latest leak has given players a glimpse into what her kit can do, and it’s pretty interesting the range the Apex Legends Ash abilities look like they will cover.
The latest Apex Legends launch trailer for Season 11 wasn’t gameplay of the new season, but rather an action-driven cinematic showing off what players can expect.
This trailer did show some of what Ash can do, but the new leaks revealing the descriptions and names of her kit have provided further details on the abilities.
Apex Legends YouTuber Thordan Smash revealed the Apex Legends Ash abilities in a recent video, showing off the Passive, Tactical, and Ultimate for the Season 11 Legend.
Apex Legends Ash abilities
The Apex Legends Ash abilities are as follows:
- Passive: Marked for Death
- Ash’s map reveals all deathbox locations. Click on a deathbox to mark surviving attackers.
- Tactical: Arc Snare
- Releases a slow-moving snare of charged electricity that tethers people and does damage to those who get close.
- Ultimate: Phase Breach
- Tear open a one-way portal to a targeted location
Her Passive sounds very useful, as being able to mark the remaining enemies of a team will allow teams to get fights off much faster without being third-partied while trying to find the rest of the team.
The Tactical sounds like something players can throw at enemies behind cover, doing slight damage to them to either down an enemy with very low health, or just as an annoyance.
Lastly, the Ultimate could just put Wraith out of business, as it’s similar to her portal but much fast and more direct. Further, we’ll know more about it when the season officially launches, but if you can do this through walls, this will be very powerful for relocating and rotating with your team.
That’s all for the Apex Legends Ash abilities in Season 11. Remember, these are leaks about the Apex Legends Ash abilities so take them with a pinch of salt, but if they’re true, Ash is definitely a Legend to look out for.

Apex Legends’ popularity reaches new heights after Season 14 update
With the release of Apex Legends Season 14, the Battle Royale game is experiencing an unprecedented amount of active players.
Apex Legends Season 14 has achieved a new peak in popularity for Respawn Entertainment’s FPS Battle Royale game.
The new content has been so appealing that the game has even reached a new all-time peak player count on Steam, showing just how popular Apex Legends Season 14 is.
As of August 10, 2022, Apex Legends has a peak of 510,286 concurrent players, which is the highest it has ever been.
Although it’s only Steam‘s player count, this still shows just how popular the new Season of Apex Legends currently is.
Of course, the numbers are likely to decrease after launch week, but this is still impressive, especially as it shows that the game’s popularity is actually increasing despite being in its fourteenth season.
As Respawn continue to update and introduce new exciting content to the game, the player count will likely continue to rise, especially when players are now guaranteed an Heirloom.

Powerful Apex Legends glitch allows players to carry active Heat Shields on their head
Apex Legends players have noticed a new glitch in Season 14 which allows Heat Shields to be placed on character’s heads.
A new powerful glitch has been found in Apex Legends after the Season 14 update which sticks Heat Shields on top of the character.
A new season of Apex Legends doesn’t just mean a new Legend, it also usually means new bugs and issues for the devs to fix.
While the Apex Legends Season 14 update launched smoothly, players have noticed some odd glitches and issues, such as characters having the wrong abilities and Wattson being unable to place her fences.
Now, players have found a bug in Season 14 which puts Heat Shields on the player’s head, which is actually very strong.
Reddit user JomzYT put a video up in the Apex Legends subreddit showing off this new Heat Shield glitch, along with the caption “Apparently you can now put heatshields on your head!”
In the video, the player goes to place a Heat Shield down when it miraculously lands on their head and stays with them while they move.
Heat Shields are extremely useful in Apex Legends, as they protect you from the ring and can often save you or your teammate’s life, giving you time to heal up before making your way back into the ring.
Usually, they are placed on the floor, and can not be moved. However, with this glitch, the player is free to move around and remain protected by the Heat Shield, which is stuck to their head.
The fact that the player can move around with the Heat Shield makes this bug very powerful, leaving some in the comments of the post jokingly saying that “it’s a feature,” and a “buff.”
According to one of the users in the comments, this bug is associated with Vantage and could be to do with her winged companion Echo: “This is a thing that happens with Vantage at times, I accidentally pinged myself and my own echo earlier today. Seems like Echo stays physical even when holstered, this leaves one question. Rampart turret on Echo?”
Perhaps the Heat Shield was attached to Echo, as the player had not called the bat out. This has players reminiscing about similar bugs with Crypto and his drone: “Oh gosh, I remember when we had that bug with Crypto. That was funny, flying around on your turret shooting at people.”
Although it doesn’t seem like a major issue, Respawn will likely get this patched up as soon as possible. For more on Apex Legends, check out what NICKMERCS had to say about the Valkyrie nerfs in Season 14.

Wattson’s fence unusable in Apex Legends despite Season 14 fixes
Players are having trouble with Wattson’s fences yet again in Apex Legends, despite the Legend receiving fixes in Season 14 update.
Apex Legends players are frustrated with Wattson’s fences as they claim the ability is unusable in Season 14.
Apex Legends players are finally able to enjoy the brand new Season 14 update, as the season dropped on August 9. Players have been getting to grips with Vantage, the overhauled Kings Canyon map, and various buffs and nerfs in the patch notes.
The new update supposedly brought improvements to Wattson’s fence placement, but the community have been experiencing the opposite.
Reddit user oscarwildeaf has highlighted the issue with Wattson’s fences on the Apex Legends subreddit, posting a video of the problem while sarcastically saying “another great patch for Wattson.”
The patch notes claimed that the devs had made “improvements” to the placement of Wattson fences, as there have been many issues with the ability in the past.
In the video, the player attempts to place Wattson fences but is inconveniently unable to do so, despite the UI showing that it is possible.
This is obviously extremely frustrating for Wattson players in Apex Legends Season 14, as her electric fences are her main tool and this isn’t the first time there have been issues with it.
One user in the comments of the post even said “Wattsons been dealing with this for a while anytime they change fences or arcstars they break s***. You can expect a fix maybe in season 15, time to retire Wattson for 14.”
Clearly, this player feels that Wattson’s fence placement will be broken for some time, but hopefully Respawn prove them wrong and bring a permanent fix for the issue soon.
On the topic of bugs and issues, a new Apex Legends Season 14 glitch is causing characters to have the wrong abilities, making for some hilarious clips.
