Apex Legends: What the Titanfall Mechs have to do with the next drop

Apex Legends: What the Titanfall Mechs have to do with the next drop

Apex Legends

As most fans probably know, the battle royale shooter Apex Legends is set in the same universe as the shooter series Titanfall. This is hardly surprising, because after all, all of these games come from the development studio Respawn Entertainment. There are numerous references and references to the Titanfall episodes in Apex Legends. But it looks like the team will soon go one step further and even introduce the giant 'Mechs - also known as Titans - into the battle royale shooter.

The well-known leaker and dataminer recently had a corresponding hint "Biast12" found. He recently rummaged through the latest Apex Legend files and made a special find. This is how he came across the abilities of the character Kuben Blisk. Some of you might still know it from Titanfall. He is already part of the Apex Legends story (buy now € 12.00), but has not yet appeared as a playable character. This could change in the foreseeable future, otherwise the developers probably wouldn't bother to give it special capabilities.

The next specialty: his ultimate ability is called "Standby for Titanfall". According to the description, he uses this ability to summon Blisk an automatically controlled Titan, which occupies a previously selected area with a barrage. That would bring some new tactical possibilities into the game of Apex Legends.

However, an opinion or even confirmation from Respawn Entertainment is pending. On the other hand, "Biast12" had already attracted attention several times with correct leaks and data mining finds. In any case, we will keep you up to date.

    Apex Legends Blisk abilities

    While this list of abilities remains unconfirmed, here's what Blisk's kit looks like according to a screenshot believed to be taken from a playtest of the character. Because these concepts are allegedly part of a playtest it's possible they might be altered in the weeks and months ahead, but here's what we know at the time of publication.

  • Pilot Kit [Passive]: Blisk can hack Survey Beacons using his Data Knife. Blisk can also wall run.
  • My Ring, My Rules [Tactical]: Blisk creates a damaging zone powered by The Arena's Ring.
  • Standby for Titanfall [Ultimate]: Blisk summons an auto-Titan to suppress an area.
  • In terms of dissecting what these presumed playtested abilities could mean for the rest of the game, many of them make sense in the current meta. The My Ring Tactical, for example, seems to fit perfectly alongside the Heat Shield item that was just added in Season 8.

    After all, if Respawn intends to introduce a Legend that can make his own rings, it's smart to already have something in place to counter it from the start. And as this video below indicates, it looks like the auto-Titan fires bullets in an AoE fashion when summoned.

    Who is Kuben Blisk, and will we see him in Season 9?

    Kuben Blisk is a South African protagonist featured in Respawn's Titanfall and Titanfall 2. In the Apex universe, he's established as the original commissioner of the Apex Games, having once fought as a mercenary in similar bloodsports. He's responsible for adding Legends to his list that eventually make their way into the competition.

    As for his possible appearance in Season 9, that much remains unclear. This playtest suggests the character might be feature-complete, but it's worth noting that Blisk has been part of datamined files since shortly after Apex launched in 2019.

    On an official basis, the only thing that's been suggested about the Season 9 Legend is that they may appeal to a Japanese audience. Speaking to Famitsu earlier this month, Apex Legends Game Director Chad Grenier teased 'the Legend in Season 9 I hope will be liked in Japan.'

    While a South African mercenary doesn't sound like it meshes with Japanese culture very much, the fact that the mercenary can potentially deploy a giant mech certainly does. It seems like a near guarantee that Blisk will come to Apex eventually, but a Season 9 debut isn't certain yet. Those details will become more clear as we inch toward Season 9's projected launch window in May.

    Apex Legends is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
