A huge Apex Legends leak has revealed nine unreleased characters and has even showcased some of their abilities in-game. 

With Apex Legends being a live service game, the community is always on the lookout for the next significant update or event.

As it can take Respawn a long time to make these announcements, dataminers and leakers often take it upon themselves to identify information ahead of time.

Most of the time, clues come in the form of game files which only provide minor hints, but occasionally, major leaks are revealed from the development version of Apex that should only be available internally at Respawn.

Well, that’s exactly what’s happened on March 22, with 9 unreleased Legends and their abilities being revealed in one huge leak.


Note: Keep in mind a lot of the Legends revealed in the leak could be older versions of an already released character or have been scrapped completely. Not only that, it’s impossible to know when this build of the game is from, so a lot could have changed since then, and before any of the Legends are released, if at all.

Nine unreleased characters leaked in Apex Legends

Originally just posting a screenshot of the roster with the unreleased Legends on the ApexUncovered subreddit, a lot of the community questioned the authenticity of the leak.

However, their suspicions were short-lived, as the insider then posted a video of the Legends and their abilities inside the Firing Range.

In total, nine unreleased Legends have been revealed with Conduit, Scryer, Newcastle, Uplink, Vantage, Catalyst, Phantom, Jester, and Caliber all making an appearance.

The huge leak not only revealed the names of the Legends but also showcased their abilities which we’ll go through below. It’s worth noting that it’s likely a lot of these characters could be reworked or scrapped

It’s also worth noting that leaks like this have surfaced in the past, with many of the Legends changing a lot when they actually arrive in-game.
