Who is Seer?

With the announcement of Season 10, Respawn released the Metamorphosis Tales from the Outlands video that gave us a peek into Seer’s life and how he acquired his powers.

By the looks of it, a prophecy foretold that a child was going to be born cursed with the mark of the moth. This appears to be the root of Seer’s abilities, and the conclusion of the video makes it clear that the new Legend is no stranger to battle.

On top of this, voice lines from other Legends referring to Seer were revealed during the teaser that went live on July 17. They mention that it is a male, he is cursed, and possibly made of moths. Caustic hints that his abilities will be about ‘misdirection.’

What are Seer’s abilities in Apex Legends?

  • Passive: HeartSeeker – Hear and visualize the heartbeats of nearby enemies while aiming down sights.
  • Tactical: Focus of Attention – Seer summons his micro-drones to emit a delayed blast that goes through walls interrupting and revealing enemies.
  • Ultimate: Exhibit – Create a sphere of micro-drones that reveal the location of enemies moving quickly or firing their weapons within.

During EA Play Live, Apex Legends Game Director Chad Grenier broke down Seer’s abilities and more details being shared by GameSpot.

And it turns out the emphasis on eyes was no misdirection, as the Legend is in the scouting/recon department of skillsets (like Crypto and Bloodhound).
