One Apex Legends player has suggested some clever changes to Bangalore’s tactical ability, Smoke Launcher, that could massively improve the Professional Soldier’s kit.
Bangalore was one of the original characters added to Apex Legends but has often flown under the radar compared to Legends like Wraith, Pathfinder, Lifeline and others in previous seasons.
While she is still a viable character in Season 6, Apex players have been calling on Respawn to improve her kit for a long time, to give Bangalore a small boost and help her keep up with the current fan-favorites.
Bangalore is known for her offensive playstyle in Apex Legends, with abilities that are tailored towards high damage and aggression. However, there are players that feel as if her abilities could do with simple improvements.
One Apex player, u/NizzyDeniro, revealed a full list of changes that they would like to see for Bangalore, with a heavy focus on the character’s tactical ability; Smoke Launcher.

They suggested that the smoke canisters Bangalore launches could be improved so that they open or break any doors they collide with, to make her the “perfect breacher” to take over a building.
The Apex fan explained that the change would give “Bangalore a breaching meta no other Legend has,” to help her stand out as in the Character Select phase.
While this would not be a massive change to Bangalore, NizzyDeniro also shared a complete rework of the tactical ability. It would allow her to alternate between smoke and flash grenades, to temporarily impair the vision of enemies affected.
“By using the utility button, Bangalore can switch canisters from smoke to flash.” they explained. “Flash canisters cannot be launched as far as smoke canisters, only about 40 meters.”
These changes would make Bangalore much more effective for breaching into a room and she would be particularly useful as a counter against campers, who look to catch their opponents funneling through doorways unaware.
While it could be difficult finding ways to balance Bangalore’s tactical rework idea, it seems to have picked up a lot of support online, with plenty of Apex fans hoping to see similar changes in the future.
