Apex Legends Season 8 will be arriving soon, and there has been a lot of speculation about which new character will join the roster. Some new leaks have strongly indicated that it will be a Legend named Fuse.
Apex Legends Season 7 is almost over, and with the developers working on multiple future seasons at the same time, we’re excited to get new content in Season 8. Respawn is expected to release the new update in early February 2021.
There are rumors about a new Legend being introduced in the upcoming season. Now, some new leaks have surfaced that list the abilities of this character. Here’s everything we know about the potential Season 8 Legend named Fuse.
What are Fuse’s abilities in Season 8?
A few data miners have been going through the Apex Legends game files following the Fight Night Collection Event. Through this, they’ve been able to uncover some new content that was part of the update.
These leaks have given us more information about the potential new character and their abilities. The game files list the Legend’s name as Fuse, and have given us some insight into what they can do. Their abilities will revolve around explosives:
- Tactical: Projectile Grenade
- Ultimate: Firebomb
The official names of these abilities will probably change when the Season 8 update finally goes but this is the information that we have so far. A few Sound files for these abilities were also dug up by a leaker named Biast12.
This leak has some credibility since these abilities match a Legend concept that was posted back on Reddit in May 2019. This was posted by a fan and it referred to an explosives expert named ‘Fuse’.
Respawn may have taken a look at that, and been inspired by it when designing their own version of the Legend. You can see the fan-made concept below:
Keep in mind that at the moment, these are still just rumors. We haven’t heard anything official from the developers so far, but we expect a new teaser to drop this month, as they usually release at least a month before the new season launches.
That said, it’s worth at least considering that these leaks might be real, as the last three Legends have all been revealed ahead of their release. Hopefully, we’ll know more soon, and when we do, we’ll be sure to update you.
Another Season 8 leak has revealed an Anniversary Collection Event is planned for Apex Legends Season 8, which will bring recolors of some Legend skins along with a major change to how Heirlooms work.
