Apex Legends is home to plenty of colorful characters that players can unlock and master. However, one talented fan has come up with their own support Legend that would be able to literally carry his teammates.
Every new Apex Legends update brings something new to the table. From new POIs to the latest weaponry, Respawn is always working on exciting additions that will shake up the current meta. Of course, one of the most impactful additions is the release of new Legends.
Every Legend has their own strengths and weaknesses, with many of them favoring certain styles of play. Well, one dedicated Apex Legends fan has come up with their own unique take on a life-saving support Legend.
Not only does this concept have an interesting mechanic that isn’t currently in the game, but it also demonstrates how creative the Apex community is.
Support Legend fan concept: Björn – Towering Rescuer
Posting on the official Apex Legends subreddit, muffin___man, shared their take on a new support Legend. Unlike other characters in the BR, Björn’s passive ability enables him to carry downed teammates or their deathbox. During this animation, the herculean support can only fire his gun from the hip.

Björn’s passive also enables him to carry more healing items per slot, similar to that of Fuse’s Grenadier feature. While not strictly a healer, this would allow Björn to drop plenty of lifesaving medkits when his team needs a helping hand.
The stalwart support’s tactical enables Björn to heal nearby allies whenever he consumes any stims. To ensure this ability is balanced, muffin___man has stated that this Tactical only has a minor effect.
Lastly, the Towering Rescuer’s ultimate sees Björn unleash a devastating close-range blast that launches enemies away, causing a “landing” when enemies hit the ground. Those hit by the blast also receives an EMP effect that disables their HUD, pings, and voice lines. Interestingly, this ultimate can be used through walls and can break down doors.
Whether a similar concept will ever be added to Apex in the future remains to be seen, but there’s no denying just how influential this archetype would be to the current Legend meta.
