Apex Legends’ new character Mad Maggie has a large wrecking ball for an final means
Till just lately, Mad Maggie’s most important declare to fame in Apex Legends was that she had a surprisingly spry 80-year-old mum, and beloved to inform folks about it. Now we all know she’ll be rising from the backstory and becoming a member of the playable Legend roster with Season 12 (Defiance), and a brand new trailer offers us our first take a look at her somewhat damaging set of skills.
How about that wrecking ball, eh? I feel we simply bought our first take a look at Maggie’s final means. This means will not come as a complete shock to some, after a leak from “Biast12” on Twitter gave us a quick description of the Wrecking Ball means as “a wad of particles that disorients targets and makes you progress sooner in its wake”. Maybe that motion pace increase is the fiery impact we see round Maggie just a few occasions within the trailer.
We additionally see what seems to be like a tactical means, the place Maggie fired a gadget onto a floor which proceeded to spew damaging flames in reverse instructions. It seems to be pretty just like fellow Legend Fuse’s Motherlode final, and the hyperlink is not that shocking contemplating their shared backstory as childhood mates turned enemies.
Mad Maggie was first launched means again in Season 8, when she crashed a ship into the centre of Kings Canyon, altering the map for the brand new season. She appears to have a expertise for destruction, as a result of her presence additionally sparks a change in Olympus, bringing the floating island far nearer to the bottom and littering it with particles from some type of botched teleportation. Olympus is by far my favorite map, so I am eagerly awaiting extra information of precisely what has modified. Hopefully it is quite a lot of bits of scrap metallic dotted about all over the place.
Other than the arrival of Mad Maggie and the modifications to Olympus, Season 12 may also deliver us the brand new 9v9 Management mode. Management seems to be to be Apex’s tackle the FPS staple mode the place you could battle to seize and maintain management factors, with set loadouts and limitless respawns.
If Respawn keep true to their ordinary advertising and marketing schedule for brand spanking new seasons, then the following few days ought to deliver us a gameplay trailer the place we would get a greater thought of how Maggie’s skills work. Till then, be part of me over on our Apex Legends character tier checklist and have enjoyable predicting the place on the tier checklist Maggie will land when the brand new season begins.
