With Apex Legends now in its fifth season, we've had five new legends added since launch. With Season 6 up next, players are wondering who the new character might be. Here's every leaked legend we know about, and their abilities.
So far, all the leaked abilities have been pretty accurate once the characters actually arrived in-game, so we can rely on these leaks with a fair degree of certainty.
Respawn did pull a fast one on everyone when they initially announced Forge, not Revenant, for Season 4. This turned out to be a ploy to trick the data miners, and Revenant was, of course, the new Legend added in the end.
It's important to remember that things can still change throughout the development process. Some of these legends may change dramatically or could be scrapped entirely prior to the next season.
There is a good chance that Rampart will be the next Legend coming to Apex Legends.
This is the only image of Rampart we have so far, and it comes from the leaked dev sheet. On this sheet, Revenant, Loba and Rampart are listed, in that order. So, if Respawn stick to that order, it would make sense for Rampart to be up next. In the Season 5 trailer, some players actually think we got a first look at Rampart's turret.
It's unknown if the character is still in development or not, but we do at least have a list of abilities for this leaked legend from the game files thanks to the data miners.
- Amped Cover: Build cover with an upper barrier that blocks incoming shots and boosts the damage of outgoing shots.
- Emplaced HMG: Place a mounted machine gun that anyone can use. High ammo capacity, long reload time.
- Fixer: Swapping to melee equips a wrench players can use to repair structures.
- Cover Fire: Firing from the Amped Cover overcharges your weapon damage.
- Gunner: Machine guns have increased magazine capacity and reload faster.
Nomad could next in line, as he is a rather complete legend in the game files. However, very little is known about the lore behind this character. This image may or may not be how he will look, as we can only speculate for now.
- Passive: Packmule – “Nomad and his teammates have additional backpack space.”
- Tactical: Loot Compass – “Follow the loot compass to the nearest item.”
- Ultimate: Crafting Table – "Place a crafting table down. Scrap salvageable material and purchase items.”

Immortal appears to be a very Titanfall-inspired legend, with a pilot-like suit of armor in the leaked image. He's described as a shield support legend by data miner That1MiningGuy, similar to how Lifeline is a support legend now.
- Passive: Hard to Kill - When you get downed you can revive yourself.
- Tactical: Shield Charger / Teardown - Unleash a cloud of Nanites to charge your team's shields OR Hit a target with a cloud of nanites to kill their shields for a short period of time.
- Ultimate: Rise of the Pheonix - Restores your health and shields to full and gives nearby teammates 30 seconds of self-revive. Takes 8 seconds to charge.

Blisk is another character that is apparently very much inspired by Titanfall. In fact, he's technically already featured in Apex Legends too, as the older man you see in the cinematic trailer. In Titanfall, Blisk is a South African mercenary and leader of the Apex Predators, a group of rogue pilots.
There are even rumors that Blisk could have been teased by Respawn themselves.
- Passive: Interrogation – “Executing an enemy will reveal the location of their allies for 10 seconds.”
- Tactical: Throwing Knife – “Deals 20 damage and marks the target. Killing a marked target rewards double credits.”
- Ultimate: Payday – "Squad kills award credits. Spend credits on powerful supplies.”

Like Rampart, very little is known about the lore of Jericho, but the character's script suggests he will be a bigger model, perhaps like Caustic or Gibraltar, and is described as 'The Frontline.'
- 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."

We're now getting down to characters whom we know very little about, outside of their abilities. There is some confusion over whether this image is 'Skunner' or 'Prophet' (who we'll get to later).
We do, however, have a nickname for Skunner: ‘Crafty Trapper’. Similar to Season 2's Wattson, it looks like this would be another legend with a focus on traps – especially as you could dodge some of the negative effects.
- Passive: Light Step: You are not slowed by debris traps and do not leave traversal evidence for trackers.
- Tactical: Debris Trap: Drop a pile of debris that slows and damages enemies when they move through it.
- Ultimate: Schiltrom Barrier Grenade: Instantly create a spiked barrier made from rapid hardening resin.

Husaria is another mystery of the leaked legends, but his nickname is 'the Hard Breacher', and his abilities explain it. He is clearly designed to be a very aggressive legend, with a number of close-quarters abilities.
- Passive: Shotgun Kick: You have a shotgun on your leg that fires when you melee doors or enemies. Requires shotgun ammo. Using your abilities grants you a brief speed boost.
- Tactical: Flashbang – Throw a grenade that briefly blinds and deafens opponents
- Ultimate: Concussive breaching charge – Plant a breaching charge that fires a sonic wave through walls to destroy traps, force open doors and disorient enemies.
Prophet / Seer
There's some confusion about whether this is actually the image for Prophet, or if it is, in fact, the image for Skunner (see above). What we know for sure, is Prophet's, or 'Seer's, abilities.
Prophet / Seer's abilities:
- Passive: Sniper Training – Increased accuracy while ADS and starts game with a scope
- Tactical: Spotter Sight – Scans the environment for enemies and gathers information on targets found
- Ultimate: Triple Tap – Equips a silenced sniper rifle with three shots
Downfall is described as a 'Populist Pyromaniac', and is another character believed to be deep in development, likely to change drastically before being released – if released at all. We do have his tentative abilities though.
- Passive: Fire Walker – You automatically extinguish fire by walking through it. Burning teammates will be extinguished when they move close to you.
- Tactical: Fire Sale – Drop a box of four molotovs anyone in your squad can pick up and throw.
- Ultimate: Reign of Fire – Fire a rocket-propelled fire bomb.
Valk is described as the 'Soaring Aviator'. The dev sheet of leaked legends gave us our first glimpse at the character, but as you can see, it's difficult to make out much. Valk's leaked abilities are as follows.
- Passive: VTOL Jets – Hold jump to initiate VTOL Jets.
- Tactical: Cluster Missile – Fire a rocket that explodes multiple times.
- Ultimate: Skyward – Press once to prepare for launch. Teammates can interact with Valk to join the launch. Press again to launch into the air and skydive.
Reckoner is one of the latest leaked legends found in the game files. Described as a 'Self-Sacrificing Romantic', Reckoner is in the very early stages of development, so don't expect them to be added any time soon.
- Passive: Shield Blast — “Upon breaking shields will emit an explosion, damaging nearby enemies.”
- Tactical: Shield Stealer — “Fire an energy beam that drains enemy shields and charges your own.”
- Ultimate: Gravity Orb — “Throw a slow moving gravity orb that bends the trajectory of nearby attacks.”
Discovered along with Forge is another Legend, code-named Conduit, who the game files indicate will be an "Overshield Conductor," perhaps suggesting that Conduit will be a support character rather than one that offers a clear offensive or defensive purpose.
- Tactical Arc Flash: Deals damage to Conduit's shields to give targeted allies an overshield.
- Passive Capacitance: Conduit's base health is 50 health and 50 shield, instead of 100 health. Conduit gradually regenerates shield over time.
- Ultimate Short Circuit: Conduit channels their shields into a giant arc ball that flies across the battlefield, stealing shields from enemies.
That's all the leaked legends we know about so far in Apex Legends. Most of these characters are unconfirmed and could change drastically before they are released.
