Rumored Apex Legends character may be a familiar face to Titanfall players

A reliable Apex Legends dataminer discovered that the battle royale shooter will soon welcome a familiar face to King’s Canyon, for players who also piloted mechs in the Titanfall games.

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, That1MiningGuy said that he found code for a new character who is said to be coming to Apex Legends — none other than Kuben Blisk, a freelance pilot who is the leader of the Apex Predators from the Titanfall universe.

Apex Legends - Fully Explained - Blisk

Blisk is a ruthless mercenary who created the Apex Games after the Frontier War. The Apex Games, set in The Outlands, is the premise behind the competition known as Apex Legends. He first appeared in Titanfall, before becoming an antagonist in the single-player campaign of Titanfall 2.

That1MiningGuy said that he found Blisk’s abilities in Apex Legends, which appear to support a very aggressive playstyle.

  • Passive: Interrogation — “Executing an enemy will reveal the location of their allies for 10 seconds.” The ability is great for gathering information on the whereabouts of your enemies, but may leave players vulnerable due to the time it takes to carry out an execution.
  • Tactical: Throwing Knife — “Deals 20 damage and marks the target. Killing a marked target rewards double credits.” What are the credits for? They will have something to do with Blisk’s ultimate.
  • Ultimate: Payday — “Squad kills award credits. Spend credits on powerful supplies.” It remains unclear how exactly players will be able to buy supplies with the credits that they earn. The list of items that may be purchased, for either 2, 5, or 10 credits, will determine the value of this skill, and of Blisk in his entirety.

Self-proclaimed lore expert FrozenFroh believes that Blisk is behind The Syndicate, which operates and makes money from the Apex Games. Meanwhile, Crypto, another character who is expected to join Apex Legends in season three, is believed to be part of the group looking to overthrow The Syndicate.

A showdown between Blisk and Crypto may be the premise behind season three of Apex Legends. The mercenary is also the first solid connection between the game and the Titanfall series, which raises hope that Titans will soon find their way into the battle royale shooter.

The best settings for Apex Legends Mobile
One legend kicks another in the face.

Apex Legends Mobile is a fully-fledged and featured version of the hit battle royale game built for playing on the go. Aside from the game being of great quality, the developers also wanted to make sure that this version was just as accessible and customizable as the console and PC versions.

Apex Legends Mobile offers a suite of settings that make most mobile games' settings menus look like a joke. You have way more options here than just adjusting volume settings, and in fact, you can do a ton to make this version of the game just as comfortable and fun to play as it would be on a console or PC. But unless you're comfortable tweaking these settings and you know what you're doing under the hood, it can also be a challenge to get the game running the best that it can. If you're a little lost but want to get the most out of Apex Legends Mobile, here are the best settings to change.

The best legends in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

Taking elements from hero shooters, Apex Legends introduced a cast of unique characters that filled different roles, with their own set of skills to make your knowledge of the roster and team compositions just as much a factor as your ability to pop heads. Apex Legends Mobile starts off with a smaller starting roster of Legends than the main title, but it's just as complex a battle royale.

However, just like in any shooter where each character has their own suite of abilities and situational strengths and weaknesses, nothing can be perfectly balanced. Some Legends, intentionally or not, are just plain better than others. Looking at every Legend in Apex Legends Mobile so far, assuming you're playing in a squad, we've come up with what are the top-tier Legends in the game.

The best weapons in Apex Legends Mobile
A party of Legends prepares for battle.

It may be the little brother to the console and PC versions, but Apex Legends Mobile is just as action packed and skill dependent as the best battle royale games out there. It retains all the core features that made the original so special in a genre that was getting flooded with copycats thanks to a smart blending of unique Legends, squad-focused matches, and the fast and fluid gameplay. While your chosen Legend is a key component to playing, the real battles almost always come down to who has the best gun and skill to use it.

Apex Legends Mobile doesn't hold back in terms of the weapons it offers. All of them will be familiar to fans who have poured hours into the original Apex Legends, but since this isn't just a straight up port of that game, not all guns will be as useful, or as bad, as they once were. Of course, balance changes will be a thing in Apex Legends Mobile, but for right now, these are the best weapons in the game you should seek out when looting.
