New Apex Legend, Octane

We first reported leaks on the new Legend Octane back on March 5th and supplied you all with what his expected abilities were going to be and now it looks like we will have access to the new Legend when Season 1 of Apex Legends, Wild Frontier kicks off later this morning.

Octane is a high-speed daredevil – if it doesn’t involve diving, leaping, plummeting, or racing, then Octane wants nothing to do with it. Always the life of the party, Octane truly believes winning the Championship isn’t enough…not if you didn’t cheat death at least twice to get there.

Octane Abilities:

    • Passive: Swift Mend

      • While not taking damage. Octane restores health over time.
        • 1 health healed every 2 seconds.
    • Tactical: Stim

      • Move 30% faster for 6 seconds. While active, Octane is affected less by attacks that cause slowdown. 2 second recharge.
    • Ultimate: Launch Pad

        • Deployable jump pad that catapults users through the air. Takes 90 seconds to recharge.
Octane costs 12,000 Legend Tokens or 750 Apex Coins

We reported yesterday that all players of Apex will receive some free rewards for playing and one of these looks like a Wild Frontier-themed outfit for Octane. One of the biggest things the community seems to be mentioning is a possible problem with the hitbox for this Legend – he appears to have a small stature which would make it a bit harder to hit compared to the bigger guys. However, we reported that Respawn would be tweaking those hitboxes for all Legends making each legend balanced for fairness. Since Apex Legends launched, players have only been able to use the available Legends with the two additional purchasable Legends Mirage and Caustic, so it will be interesting to see another Legend out in battle.

Launch pads have already been seen around the map and have been used by players i an intentional effort put through by Respawn development team for players to get a feel for what these Launch Pads will do. Check out this video from Monkeysniper on youtube to see what you can look forward to.

Octane will launch with Season 1 later today, 10am Pacific time.
