A lot of Apex Legends players are asking questions about Mad Maggie, especially as she has now been revealed as the Season 12 Legend.
Apex Legends has a lot of lore and character development that even spans from the Titanfall series. Despite not becoming a playable Legend until Season 12, Mad Maggie has been involved in the game’s lore ever since Fuse was introduced.
With the latest Stories from the Outlands video providing players with information regarding why she will be involved in the Apex Games, what will her abilities be and what’s her backstory?
Who is Apex Legends’ Mad Maggie?
Mad Maggie was introduced to players as Fuse’s close friend on Salvo, the home planet of both characters. They grew up together and developed a close bond while fighting for Salvo’s freedom. Fuse broke that friendship when he left Salvo and joined the Apex Games.
Maggie felt betrayed because the Apex Games are run by the same organization that took Salvo, the Syndicate. Fuse’s departure caused a fight between the two that ultimately ended in Fuse losing his arm.
We saw Maggie ambush and ruin Fuse’s debut appearance at the Apex Games by destroying the Kings Canyon map for Season 8’s launch. Maggie was also responsible for the War Games event in the same season, where she took over the games, changing the rules with LTMs and becoming the announcer.
Since then, she has been causing havoc to the Syndicate, who eventually captured and forced her to participate in the games to pay for her crimes.
Apex Legends Mad Maggie abilities
With the new season being announced, we finally have official information regarding Mad Maggie’s abilities. Thanks to the EA blog on Season 12, here is Maggie’s launch kit:
Passive – Warlord’s Ire
- Temporarily highlight enemies you’ve damaged, and move faster with a shotgun.
Maggie’s passive is very interesting, as not only does it give her kit some aspects of a recon Legend, but it also gives her mobility when she uses a Shotgun.
Players who like to get up close and personal will definitely enjoy this Passive, as it will make Maggie very strong with Shotguns and also allow her to track enemies that she does damage to.
Tactical – Riot Drill
- Fire a drill that burns enemies through obstacles.
Next, we have Maggie’s Tactical ability, which is called the Riot Drill. From the description, it’s clear that this ability will be used to do poke damage and also stop players from hiding behind cover.
Maggie’s tactical will be perfect for getting damage off on players behind obstacles, which will work extremely well with her passive, as after damaging them with the tactical, they will be highlighted, essentially giving her wallhacks.
Ultimate – Wrecking Ball
- Throw a ball that releases speed-boosting pads and detonates near enemies.
Lastly, Mad Maggie’s Ultimate is called Wrecking Ball and features another interesting mobility mechanic.
When thrown, the Ultimate will release “speed boosting pads” that will likely give other players a speed boost too, not just Maggie. When it gets close to enemies, it will detonate and do some damage to your opponents.
That’s all for Mad Maggie’s abilities and lore in Apex Legends. For more on Season 12, make sure you check out every confirmed change coming in the update.

Overpowered Apex Legends double pump glitch returns in Season 14
Apex Legends players have discovered the return of the double pump glitch in Season 14, creating controversy in the community.
The infamous double pump glitch has returned in Apex Legends Season 14, leaving players worried about people abusing the bug.
However, players have now discovered that the infamous double pump glitch has returned, making the Peacekeeper and Sentinel even more deadly for those who abuse the bug.
Apex Legends content creator Mokeysniper brought the return of the double pump glitch to the community’s attention on August 18, posting a video of it in action.
The glitch allows players to shoot the Peacekeeper and Sentinel much faster than they should be able to, giving those who use the glitch an unfair advantage over others.
The glitch is done by shooting, reloading, swapping to your secondary, and swapping back very quickly. If players are able to get the timing right, they can repeat this process to shoot the Peacekeeper/Sentinel in a ridiculously fast manner.
This is clearly a glitch that needs to be addressed and resolved quickly by Respawn, as if it starts to be abused by players, it could create chaos.
In the comments of the Twitter post, there are a few videos of players showing them doing it in-game, which is a worrying sign. Some are very worried about it being absued, with one comment saying “I actually hate that you guys post this kinda s***. It’s always super sick to deal with some broken weird s*** in ranked.”
Hopefully, Respawn can get a fix out for this as soon as possible, much like they were able to do for the accidental removal of tap strafing.

Weird Apex Legends glitch spawns unlimited loot for players
A new Apex Legends glitch has been discovered that provides players with unlimited loot from one Loot Bin.
An Apex Legends player has discovered a very weird bug that spawns unlimited loot when playing in Season 14.
The Apex Legends developers are constantly looking to improve the player experience by introducing new content and fixing issues the community is experiencing. Just recently, the devs even introduced a quality of life change which made many controller players happy.
Unfortunately, Apex Legends is not immune to bugs and issues, with the launch of Season 14 prompting some new glitches like characters having the wrong abilities and players not receiving rewards for leveling up.
Now, Apex Legends content creator Skeptation has found a new glitch in the Battle Royale which ultimately allows players to exploit Loot Bins to spawn unlimited items.
Skeptation explains how this glitch works in his August 18 YouTube video, stating that when players stand on top of and open a Loot Bin that has a wall behind it, the Loot Bin will close completely after the player has taken the loot inside of it.
If you open the Loot Bin again, it will be completely empty. This is obviously a good trick for covering your tracks and trolling teammates who are looking for loot, however, Skeptation noticed that on some occasions something “weirder” happens.
When messing around with the bug, Skeptation noticed that sometimes the Loot Bin would refresh and spawn more loot after performing the glitch.
Skeptation does say that although he is “not sure what triggers it,” if someone is able to figure out how to do it consistently it would be “broken.”
If this becomes a major issue and players are attempting and being successful with this unlimited loot glitch, perhaps it will provoke Respawn to come up with a fix.
