A popular YouTube data miner has discovered game files in Apex Legends that uncover all abilities for leaked character Jericho.

The second season of Respawn Entertainment’s popular battle royale is well underway, but so far we’ve only seen one new character added to the game.

However, as data miners dig deeper into the Apex Legends game files, plenty of potential leaks continue to surface as the developers continue to pour their creative efforts into the title.

Respawn EntertainmentThe Iron Crown Event has received a mixed bag of feedback.

So far, Crypto appears most likely to be the next addition to the growing list of Legends, as a comprehensive character profile has now emerged. Although, while the addition of Crypto appears to be a matter of not if but when, other potential Legends are also appearing. 

In a video released on August 25, The Gaming Merchant reveals leaked details on another potential character: Jericho. 

What are Jericho’s abilities?

Described as “The Frontline”, the character scripts that are embedded within Apex Legends’ game files portray Jericho to be a bigger character, potentially rivaling Gibraltar. Jericho’s abilities are as follows:

  • Passive: Ballistic Shield Protection – “Your Ballistic Shield protects your back when you are not actively using it.”
  • Ability one (potential Tactical): Ballistic Shield – “A full-body shield that protects your from incoming fire.”
  • Ability two (potential Ultimate): Shield-Breaker Javelins – “Throw two electrically charged javelins that burn through enemy body shields.”

Details surrounding the Ballistic Shield appear vague, with it’s deployment time and character implications (such as health regeneration and gun use) yet to be revealed — how this will weigh-up versus Gibraltar’s Tactical Ability remains to be seen.

Shield-Breaker Javelins might skew the balance of the current in-game meta, as combining them with Hammerpoint Rounds will give the Legend the ability to strip both body shields and health simultaneously, which may prove overpowered indeed. 

This data is gathered from a version of the game that is still in development, and as such, all of these details are subject to change. 

However, similar game files have been leaked before regarding characters which have transpired to hold substance, and later confirmed by Respawn themselves. Therefore, the information provided here may indeed be legitimate, considering that the character leaks date back as far as February.

As previously detailed characters seem to be further along in their development, Jericho may have to join the queue behind Crypto, Rosie and more. Should this character and their abilities make it to King’s Canyon, there is a potential for a large shift in the battle royale’s meta.

Revenant Heirloom concept would be perfect for Apex Legends

An Apex Legends player has developed an incredible concept for Revenant’s Heirloom. The impressive design is centered around his backstory and would be the perfect signature weapon for the Synthetic Nightmare.

Heirlooms in Apex Legends are extremely rare and difficult to obtain, making them a prized possession. At the time of writing, there are seven Heirlooms in-game with each of them belonging to a specific Legend.

Of course, this means that the appearance of these items has to be absolutely perfect. The Heirloom has to embody the Legend it represents and incorporate aspects of their character and lore into its design.

One character who is still waiting for his Heirloom to be added to the game is Revenant. Well, an Apex Legends player appears to have done Respawn’s work for them with an impressive concept for Revenant’s Heirloom.

Impressive Revenant Heirloom concept

The post, made by VerbatumTurtle, includes a detailed and custom made image that reveals the reasons behind each of the design choices.

The Heirloom itself is called ‘Death’s Head Kusarigama’ and is modeled in the shape of the traditional Japanese weapon. At the base of the Heirloom is Revenant’s signature skull, inspired by his ‘Death Totem’ ultimate ability.

Attached to the skull is a chain that represents his “past life… a life where he experienced pain, and death.” This is no doubt a reference to Revenant’s life as a normal human before he was transformed by Syndicate and Hammond Robotics.

Finally, on the end of the chain, the design incorporates a modified version of Revenents’s straight edge shaver. This is a direct reference to the Season 4 cinematic that sees Revenant using a shaver from his past life as a robot. The artifact serves as a reminder of what he once had and everything that has been taken from him.

It’s fair to say VerbatumTurtle has created an incredible Heirloom that any Revenant main would be thrilled to use. The design is not only perfectly themed for the Legend, but it also incorporates aspects of his lore and backstory.

We’re sure Respawn already has their own plans for a Revenant Heirloom, but they have been known to take inspiration from the community before.
