Who is Apex Legends Season 12’s Mad Maggie? Abilities & lore

Apex Legends Season 12 will bring Mad Maggie as a playable Legend, but who is she and what are her abilities?

Published

on

apex legends mad maggie

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?

apex legends mad maggie and fuse

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 that Fuse broke when he left Salvo and joined the Apex Games.

Whether Maggie was jealous or just felt betrayed, she didn’t like Fuse’s departure at all, causing a fight that ultimately ended in Fuse losing his arm.

We also 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, the group behind the Apex Games and the ones responsible for taking her home planet and best friend Fuse away from her.

Apex Legends Mad Maggie abilities

As the new season has only just been announced, we are yet to receive official information regarding Mad Maggie’s kit and abilities.

Having said that, dataminers were able to find a promotional image for the Legend that shows her with a shield and some sort of whip, which could definitely be part of her kit.

As well as this, it’s believed that Mad Maggie’s code name in the game’s files was Husaria, which previously had some leaked abilities along with it:

  • Passive: Shotgun Kick
    • Husaria has a shotgun on her leg that fires when she melees 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.

These are all previously leaked abilities and should therefore be taken with a pinch of salt. Mad Maggie’s abilities have likely changed a lot since she was code-named Husaria and these abilities above may not resemble her official kit when Season1 2 drops.

Players will likely know more about Mad Maggie’s kit when the reveal trailer drops on January 27. We will make sure to update this piece as the information goes live so stay tuned.

Apex Legends Anniversary event: Release date, rewards, more

Apex Legends is nearing its third anniversary, and Respawn usually like to celebrate in style. Here’s everything there is to know.

Respawn love to celebrate the Apex Legends anniversary with an event. The game is approaching its third birthday and for those interested in the date, here’s when Apex Legends’ anniversary is.

Apex Legends is known for having great content updates and communication with the community. Not only has Season 11 brought more server stability, but it also introduced a great new map and Legend.

With that being said, players are always hungry for new content, with Season 12 on the way. With how special the Season 8 Anniversary event was for 2021, it’s only right that fans are intrigued about the next one.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Apex Legends Anniversary event.

When is Apex Legends’ Anniversary?

Respawn’s free-to-play battle royale was released on February 4, 2019, making this date its anniversary every year since its launch. In celebration, players typically get an in-game event to mark the date.

This year, Apex Legends Anniversary will coincide with the launch of Season 12 on February 8, and so far it seems they won’t be marking the third anniversary of the game with an event, but rather “Login Rewards.”

What to expect for Apex Legends’ Anniversary event

In the previous Anniversary event, players were blessed with a whole Collection Event and Reward Tracker. This year, players will be getting login rewards for the month of February.

Starting from Season 12’s launch, players will be receiving three consecutive weeks of rewards:

  • February 8 – 15: Octane & three Thematic Packs
  • February 15 – 22: Wattson & three Thematic Packs
  • February 22 – March 1: Valkyrie, three Thematic Packs, & one Legendary Pack

If you already own these Legends, players will still get the Thematic Packs for them, which are essentially Apex Packs that guarantee items for that specific Legend.


As more news is released, we’ll be updating this article so make sure you stay tuned.

Apex Legends Season 12 will be bringing loads of new content to the battle royale. For those interested in the release date, new Legend, and more, we’ve got you covered.

Apex Legends is coming to the end of another season, and while players enjoyed a heap of new content in Season 11, including a brand new map, it’s time for even more.

A lot of leaks have been surrounding Season 12, but finally, official information has been released regarding the new content coming, including Mad Maggie, changes to Olympus, a new LTM, and even more.

Apex Legends Season 12 release date

Apex Legends Season 11 will end on February 8, 2022, and as updates tend to arrive on Tuesdays around 12 AM PST/ 1 PM EST/ 6 PM BST, this is when we could be seeing Season 12 launch.

The launch trailer for Season 12 will be released on January 27, so perhaps this is when we will get an official release date. When there is official news regarding a release date, we will be updating this piece with the information.

Apex Legends Season 12 Legend Mad Maggie

The new Legend for Season 12 will be Mad Maggie, an old friend of Fuse’s who has been forced to participate in the Apex Games as a punishment for her many crimes across the Outlands after being shot down in a dog fight against the Syndicate.

They fell out over Fuse’s choice to join the Apex Games and for Salvo (Fuse and Maggie’s home planet) to become a world owned by the Syndicate, who are also behind the Apex Games.

It seems Maggie is out for vengeance and her relationship with Fuse is bound to be explosive, making things exciting for fans in terms of lore.

It’s unclear what her abilities are, but from a recently leaked promotional image, it seems she will wield a shield and some sort of whip.

Apex Legends new LTM “Control”

Apex Legends Season 12 will also bring a brand new LTM to the game called “Control.” While there has been a lot of rumors regarding a smaller team-based mode coming to Apex Legends after Arenas, players will finally be getting it in Season 12.

Control will be available for the first three weeks of Season 12 and features two teams of 9 where players will choose their loadout – similarly to how it worked in Season 11’s version of the Holo-day Express LTM.

The two teams will then battle it to hold control points with infinite respawns. It isn’t quite clear what maps will be available on this mode, but again, as more information is released we will be sure to update this piece.

Apex Legends’ Olympus returns with an update

Map updates have been teased ahead of Season 12 but now we have official news that Olympus will be returning with changes.

The information given in the latest EA blog on Season 12 states the following: “A new view from Olympus. Something is different about the floating city…but what?”

This will no doubt generate excitement for what map changes are to come for Olympus in Season 12, especially as the map has been out for the duration of Season 11.


That’s all for Apex Legends Season 12, as more information is released make sure to check back on this article for updates. For now, check out how many people are playing Apex Legends.
