Since the Iron Crown update for Apex Legends, data miners have had a field day digging through the updated game files, uncovering all abilities for three unreleased legends: Crypto, Rosie, and Nomad – but who will be added to the game first?

Wattson was the latest character to arrive in Kings Canyon, at the launch of Season 2, succeeding Season 1’s Octane, and so history would suggest a new Legend will arrive for Season 3.

The trailer for Season 2 itself teased a new character that wasn’t Wattson however, showing a hacker who is believed to be Crypto, but developers Respawn have been quiet since.

Who’s the next Legend coming to Kings Canyon?

According to data miner That1MiningGuy, a reputable leaker responsible for finding the legend abilities in the game files, Crypto is by far the most ‘complete’ character.

Combined with the fact he was already teased in the Season 2 trailer, it does seem likely that Crypto is next up, but is it possible Respawn will release two legends for Season 3 in October?

On August 1, lead developer Tina Sanchez posted images from a motion capture session, and it is believed it could indicate that the mo-cap was for Rosie.

The final and most mysterious legend we know the abilities for is Nomad. Like Rosie and Crypto, Nomad was first found in the game files back when Apex Legends launched.

After the Iron Crown update, all of Nomad’s abilities were discovered alongside Rosie and Crypto, meaning his development is progressing along too.

All abilities for Crypto, Rosie and Nomad

Crypto

Check out everything we know about Crypto here, expected to be the next legend to compete in Kings Canyon.

Respawn Entertainment
  • Tactical: Aerial Drone – Surveillance camera drone, lasts for 40 seconds, 200 meter range. Can be destroyed. Can hack doors, loot bins and pick up banners with drone.
  • Passive: Neuro Link – Crypto and teammates see what surveillance drone detect up to 30 meters away.
  • Ultimate: Weapon Drone EMP – Charge up an EMP blast from your drone. Deals shield damage, slows enemies and disables all traps.

Rosie

Check out everything we know about Rosie here, including her lore and backstory.

That1MiningGuy
  • Eye for quality: Loba (Rosie) can see through walls and can open up hidden compartments in loot bins.
  • Supply for demand: Hold (button) to choose a type of loot. Reveal that type of loot in the area through walls.
  • Burglar’s best friend: Throw a disc and teleport to that location.
  • Black Market Boutique: Place a device that can steal all nearby loot.

Nomad

  • 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.”

Just because these abilities have been found in the game files, doesn’t mean the characters are finished development just yet. There may still be voice lines to record, animations, and cosmetics to create plus more.

With Season 3 expected to launch in October, it’s expected that at least Crypto will be added, but if Rosie’s development is coming along too, perhaps we will see two added at once for the first time.

Nomad seems to be further off, and it’s unlikely all three will be added at the same time or close to each other, so Nomad could potentially be set for Season 4 or later.

Who is Fuse in Apex Legends? Season 8 Legend abilities, release date, origin story

Fuse has finally been confirmed as the new Legend that will be added in Season 8 of Apex Legends, and while his abilities have not been revealed yet, there are quite a few leaks and teasers that give a good idea as to what they are.

Apex Legends Season 8 – called Mayhem – is expected to drop around the two-year anniversary of the game’s launch, on February 2, 2021, and along with the flurry of new content and changes comes a brand new Legend, Fuse.

Fuse will have a lot of expectations to live up to, as the most recent new character, Horizon, released in the strongest state of any post-launch character.

Whether this new recruit will instantly become part of the meta remains to be seen, but their leaked abilities might give us some indication. Here’s everything we know about the next character in line to be added.

Meet Fuse, the new Legend for Apex Legends Season 8!

After weeks of speculation, Respawn finally announced on January 18 that Fuse would indeed be the new Legend added for Season 8: Mayhem. They describe the character as one that “doesn’t lack confidence, but often lacks a plan. He’s a blow-up first ask-questions-later kinda guy.”

Fuse’s origin story is quite an explosive one; he’s from a planet called Salvo and made a name for himself winning pit fights and other similar fighting competitions. Eventually, it gets revealed that he’s been chosen to compete in the Apex Games, a decision that his longtime (and jealous) friend doesn’t appreciate.

In the S8 ‘Stories from the Outlands’ video, Fuse and his friend get into a skirmish until she tosses a grenade between them, with the subsequent explosion costing the explosives expert his arm, which is why he sports a robotic one in the Apex Games.

What are Fuse’s abilities? Leaks & teasers

As mentioned above, Respawn did not reveal Fuse’s ability kit when announcing him as the S8 Legend, so we’ll have to wait until the devs decide to roll out those details. Until then, there’s enough info out there, in leaks and teasers, for us to piece the puzzle together a bit.

From the character’s name and marketing, it’s clear that his abilities feature explosives and explosions, which makes sense considering that in-game teasers already suggest as much. Here’s a look at the teaser for his Ultimate.

This ability was part of a leak that surfaced in early 2021 containing the Legend’s other powers. The Ult is apparently going to be named Firebomb (fitting, considering the teaser above) while his Tactical is called Projectile Grenade, likely involving that golden grenade he’s shown with throughout the trailer.

  • Tactical: Projectile Grenade
  • Ultimate: Firebomb

Sound files for the abilities were also found and leaked by Biast12.

What’s perhaps most interesting is that these abilities seem to line up with a Legend concept that was first posted back in May 2019 on Reddit – with the name of the concept also called ‘Fuse’.

This concept by a fan was also called an ‘explosives expert’, so it seems possible that Respawn could have taken inspiration from this character idea. This is what the concept looked like (note this is a fan-made concept – not the official Fuse Legend).

This fan-made concept for a Legend called Fuse was very popular back in 2019.

It won’t be long until Respawn reveal the official names and details for all three of Fuse’s abilities, but these leaks and teasers give us a pretty clear idea of the type of character he will be in the Apex Games.
