Octane and His Abilities
Octane is a new character added to Apex Legends games, that has bee added with the release of the Season 1: Wild Frontier. He has metal legs and comes with different abilities listed below.
- Home World: Psamathe
- Tactical Ability: Stim
- Passive Ability: Swift Mend
- Ultimate Ability: Launch Pad
The Launch Pad is the Ultimate Ability of Octane, which let his squad fly through the air with the greatest of ease. His Tactical Ability ability allows him 30% faster move for six seconds but it costs a percentage of his health when used.
On the other hand, Passive Ability provides him the ability to restore health automatically over time. Lastly, Octane’s Ultimate Ability which is the Launch Pad ability lets him throw the launch pads on the ground that allow anyone to boost into the air.
The Launch Pad ability provides players the ability to shoot while in the air, that sounds really cool. Below you can check out the Apex Legends Octane Character in action.
