Even though Apex Legends is chock full of characters, only a few can use their abilities while driving around Olympus on the Trident.
With the start of Apex Legends Season 7, Respawn Entertainment made the move to introduce the battle royale’s first vehicle in the form of the Trident.
The three-seater hovercraft spawns at certain locations around Olympus and can get you from A to B quite quickly, which is ideal if you need to make a long rotation to a circle that is starting to close in.
As players have started to experiment with different legends using the hovercraft, it’s become apparent that not everyone can use their abilities while taking a ride and only a few legends can get a bit of a leg up.
Given that you, sadly, can’t run over enemies with the Trident to rack up eliminations, abilities are your next best bet for picking up kills while whizzing around the new Apex Legends map.
The best of which is, obviously, Rampart’s ultimate – the Sheila minigun. This can be placed at the back of the Trident and operated as a turret. However, it only shoots forward, so you do have to keep enemies in view.
Aside from that, Caustic’s gas traps can be placed all over but you will need to run near an enemy to trigger it. Lifeline’s DOC drone, Crypto’s Drone, and Gibraltar’s dome can also be used while on the Trident.
Every Apex Legends ability that can be used on the Trident vehicles
- Rampart’s Ultimate – Can be placed at the back of the Trident
- Caustic Traps – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
- Lifeline Drone – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
- Crypto Drone – Can be used while riding as a passenger on the trident
- Gibraltar Dome – Can be placed on the middle section of the Trident
As for other legends like Horizon and Octane, their Gravity Lift and Launch Pad can be used to impact the Trident but if you try and place either of them on top of the vehicle, they will simply slide off.
One other notable omissions is Wattson’s Interceptor Pylon, which will also simply slide off if you try to place it on the Trident.
Other abilities simply can’t be used while you’re whizzing around the map, and that could change over the course of the season, but the final decision will ultimately rest with Respawn.
Apex Legends Ranked: How does rank reset work?
For those wondering how Apex Legends rank reset works in ranked splits, we’ve got all the details covered for you.
Apex Legends has a great ranked system that is split over two periods, for those unsure as to how your rank is reset over these periods, here’s how it works.
Apex Legends has a great rank system that is both easy to understand and extremely addictive. For those who want a more competitive experience and a way to gauge their own skill, Ranked Leagues is the place to be.
With Season 13 bringing major changes to Ranked Leagues, with the 13.1 patch making additional tweaks, players both old and new might want a quick reminder of how the rank reset works after the split.
Apex Legends Season 13’s first ranked split was played on Storm Point, with the second bringing World’s Edge back to the ranked mode after the split occurred on June 28.
For more information on Apex Legends Ranked Leagues, check out our article on the most popular Legends to get a head start. Now, Let’s get into exactly how Apex Legends rank reset works.
How does rank reset work in Apex Legends?
Since Apex Legends Season 3, Respawn has split the ranked season into two halves, each spanning one and half months.
At the end of the first split, players will experience a “soft reset” for the second half of the ranked season, which sees their rank reduced by 4 divisions.
That means if you ended the first split in Gold II, you will see an Apex Legends rank reset to Silver II when the second ranked split begins.
Apex Predators, which is the players in the top rank, will be reset to Diamond IV, so be wary at the start of the split if you make your way to Diamond fast, you’ll be up against some tough competition.
That’s all on how rank reset works in Apex Legends Ranked Leagues. For more, check out what the devs said about potential Gold Knockdown Shield changes.

Apex Legends: Lifeline’s Clinic teases Kings Canyon & new moon BR map
Lifeline’s Clinic on Olympus for Apex Legends Season 13 possesses easter eggs which hint at Kings Canyon updates and a new BR map.
An easter egg found on Apex Legends’ brand-new Lifeline Town Takeover on Olympus may hint at map changes to Kings Canyon and a new moon-themed BR map.
As well as some buffs, Lifeline got her very own POI on Olympus called the Clinic, which definitely holds a few secrets. Some players in the Apex Legends community have discovered some easter eggs in the new POI which may be hinting at both Kings Canyon changes and the next BR map.
Lifeline’s new Town Takeover on Olympus brings new life to the northeastern side of the map, sitting just behind the Gardens POI. Since 1.98 patch dropped on June 21, players have been getting to grips with this new POI and all it has to offer.
Apex Legends content creator kralrindo pointed out some interesting magazines that can be found in the POI, one of which the headline states “Salvage operation complete…say hello to King’s Canyon’s New Relic.”

This is of course hinting at the King’s Canyon POI Salvage, which has been attempting to clean up the collapse of Skull Town since Season 5. This magazine headline is clearly hinting at a change to the POI, as the salvage operation has been complete, and a new relic is now in its place.
It’s unclear what Salvage is going to be replaced with, but the “new relic” could be salvaged parts of Skull Town, which possessed a massive skeleton of an ancient creature. We’ll likely find out when more is revealed for Season 14, which is when the map will return.
Further, someone in the comments noticed another easter egg in the same magazine, as just above the Salvage story it reads: “Boreas News…CRC in a deadlock about the moon’s future.”
Boreas is Seer’s home planet, and many believe this headline is just a reference to the destroyed moon in the skybox of the Arenas map Encore.
We aren’t set for a new battle royale map until Season 15, and that’s only if the current trend of a new battle royale map releasing every four seasons is correct. With that being said, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a teaser this earlier on.
We’ll have to wait and see if any more teasers can back up the magazine headlines, but for now, check out the Apex Legends leaks that are suggesting a level cap increase is on its way.

Apex Legends Season 13 popularity plummets after being most streamed game
Despite the new content, Apex Legends Season 13 has seen a huge decline in popularity, setting new lows for the battle royale.
Apex Legends have taken a massive decline in popularity for Season 13, as Twitch views for the game have fallen greatly.
Despite new content and being crowned the most streamed game on Twitch at the start of the season, the Apex Legends community has noticed a huge decline in the popularity of the game.
Apex Legends content creator Garret has noticed a severe decline in Twitch views for Apex Legends since the launch of Season 13. It’s normal to see spikes in Twitch views and player count when a new season drops, but maintaining high numbers throughout the season is more telling.
According to a graph posted by Garret on Twitter, Twitch views for Apex Legends are down by “more than 50% since last season,” showing just how much the popularity of the game has fallen.
However, Garret feels it could have something to do with the ranked changes for Season 13, which have caused a lot of controversy among the player base: “Upon further thought I wouldn’t be surprised if ranked changes had a hand in the view drop lol.”
While the player base is maintaining good numbers for Apex Legends Season 13, it’s not a great sign to see the Twitch views drop this far, especially when we’re only halfway through the season.
