Picking up a new Legend for the first time in Apex Legends? It’s handy to know what their abilities do, and how you can use them. If you’re looking to get your timings down pat, we’ve got you covered with all Ultimate and Tactical ability cooldowns in Apex.
One of the biggest learning curves of picking up a new character in Apex Legends is ability usage. While some Legends feel similar to one another, you might find yourself stranded if you expect a shorter cooldown than normal on your abilities.
Don’t fear though. If you want to get a basic grasp of how each Legends’ kit works, we’ve got a breakdown of all their cooldown timers below, so you can launch into the Outlands with the right mindset.
Apex Legends Tactical ability cooldowns
Legends’ Tactical abilities are just their regular, normal abilities. They all charge faster than each Legends’ ultimate, and some of them, like Bangalore’s, can store multiple charges. Tactical abilities can also recharge 20% faster with a gold Helmet.
