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 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.

A Legend escapes and explosion.

Unlike other mobile versions of popular battle royale games, such as PUBG: Mobile and Fortnite, Apex Legends Mobile is not just a straight port of the original game onto your mobile device. This game was built from the ground up for smartphones. While it's similar to the base game, the differences here are substantial enough to make even the most experienced Legends stumble a bit when sliding into this portable battle royale experience.

You will need to get a handle on more than just the new controls when acclimating to Apex Legends Mobile, and if it's your first time getting a chance to experience this free-to-play, class-based take on the battle royale genre, then you have even more onboarding needed before you can call yourself a true Legend.

Apex Legends Mobile isn’t a great fit for small screens
Promo art for Apex Legends Mobile shows different characters.

Apex Legends is one of those multiplayer games I love, but am terrible at. When I was invited to a press demo for the game’s limited-time Control mode earlier this year, I was thoroughly embarrassed as my peers routinely downed me with a headshot from across the map. I’ve always wanted to play it more than I do, but I never felt cut out for the twitchy world of PC players.

Apex Legends Mobile solves that issue for me, though it creates some new problems of its own in the process. The standalone mobile version of the battle royale hit more or less feels like a one-to-one adaptation of its bigger counterpart (the most notable difference is the number of pop-up notifications trying to nudge players to the shop). That means I can fully enjoy the shooter in a more casual portable setting, one free from the mouse and keyboard crowd.
