Every Apex Legends ability that can be used on Trident vehicles

Along with all of the new content in Apex Legends Season 7, the Trident vehicles have definitely stolen the show, but only a few Legends can use their abilities while driving them around Olympus.

Introduced at the start of Season 7, Tridents are the first-ever vehicles to be added in Apex Legends. The triple-seated hovercraft spawns at certain locations around Olympus and can get you where you need to go in a flash, making them perfect for those long rotations to a circle that’s starting to shrink.

Because you can’t run over enemies with the Trident to rack up eliminations as you might do in other games, abilities are the next best shot at snagging kills while zipping around the new Apex Legends map.

However, as we’ve had plenty of time to experiment and mess around with this new toy, it has quickly become clear that not every Legend can pull out their special moves while riding on one.

Apex Legends Trident
Respawn Entertainment
The Trident has enough room for your whole squad to roll around in.

As we saw in the gameplay trailer, Rampart’s ultimate – the minigun known as Sheila — can be placed at the back of the Trident and operated as sort of a poor man’s Warthog. The only drawback is that it can only fire forwards, so you do have to keep enemies in your field of view.

Here are all of the abilities that can be used when onboard one of these vehicles:

  • Rampart’s Ultimate – Can be placed at the back of the Trident
  • Caustic Traps – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
  • Lifeline Drone – Can be placed anywhere on top of the Trident
  • Crypto Drone – Can be used while riding as a passenger on the trident
  • Gibraltar Dome – Can be placed on the middle section of the Trident
Blisk could just be endorsing Rampart for the Apex Games because she's good entertainment.

Sheila goes great when paired with a Trident, giving Rampart a lot of potential in Season 7.

While Caustic’s gas traps can be placed all over, you will need to get close enough to an enemy to trigger them. Lifeline’s DOC, Crypto’s drone, and Gibraltar’s dome shield can also be used while riding on the Trident.

Other Legends like Horizon and Octane can use their Gravity Lift and Launch Pad to affect the hovercraft, but if you try and put either of them on top of it, they’ll just fall off. This also goes for Wattson’s Interceptor Pylon, which won’t stick either.

All in all, however, there seems to be a decent amount of balance in terms of what can and can’t be used on a Trident. It remains to be seen whether or not Respawn will add to this list, but it’s clear that the developers were very careful when planning all this out so that the vehicles don’t end up becoming too powerful.

Apex Legends leak reveals Holo-Day event skins & holiday lobby screen

Upcoming skins and charms for Apex Legends’ holiday-themed Holo-Day Bash event have been leaked, revealing new cosmetics for Loba, Revenant, and Wraith along with a Christmastime theme for the lobby.

With the holiday festivities among us, Respawn are cooking up a trove of content themed around the winter season. It’s not yet known what the devs are planning in terms of major LTMs or the like, but a new leak shows us just how many cosmetics players can expect to collect.

While there will be some skins returning from 2019, there’s going to be a healthy batch of completely fresh designs for the Apex community to pick up.

Popular Apex Legends dataminer ‘Biast12’ found a wealth of new information in Apex’s files that show how the holiday offers will look like when they drop in the shop.

Apex Legends Holo-Day bundles

There will be multiple sets on display in the shop for the coming months – about eight bundles in total, most of which will include a Rare or Epic skin for a Legend or weapon. Biast put together a showcase that prominently features every cosmetic in the leak which is expected to drop sometime soon.

While none of the bundles currently have a proper name attached to their file, we still have the full scope of what Respawn are looking to offer, including the amazing ‘Brudda Bear’ skin for Gibraltar.

Other character skins of note come in the form of Crypto’s Cool Operator, Revenant’s Frost Ancient, and Loba’s Crystalline Perfection.

Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash tracker also leaked

Respawn’s non-denominational-holiday presents to the Apex community will reportedly come in the form of a brand new content for players to grind for.

The Holo-Day Bash tracker will have 10 different tiers with a total of 4000 XP all the way. Every level will reward anything from banner badges to Rare skins for Bloodhound and Horizon.

The leaked image also invites players “aboard the new-and-improved Winter Express,” so a return of the holiday LTM could be in the cards.

When is the Apex Legends Holo-Day Bash 2020 event?

While there hasn’t been any indication that there will be a huge event like last year, Apex players will at least get the chance to score new loot for their Legends.

No times have been suggested for 2020’s Holo-Day Bash, although previous leaks have mentioned dates ranging from December 1 to January 4, according to PCGamesN. Last year’s event ran from December 12 to January 7, along with the Winter Express LTM.

As always, we will continue to bring you the latest news for this as more information gets announced and/or leaked.
