About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Apex Legends Abilities page lists every Passive, Tactical and Ultimate ability available to all eight Legends currently available in the game.

One of the things we really like about Apex Legends is the hero-based gameplay. Called Legends in-game, these heroes all bring an extra dimension to the traditional Battle Royale experience with their unique abilities.

All eight Legends have three abilities, one passive, one tactical and the other ultimate. The passive skill is always in effect and requires no micro-management on your part. Tactical abilities are activated by the player and offer up all sorts of special interactions and gameplay advantages.

Finally, there are Ultimate abilities which you'll be familiar with if you've ever played the likes of Overwatch, League of Legends or DOTA. Once it's fully charged up, you can choose to unleash a ferociously powerful ability which can give you and your teammates a significant advantage.

Below we've broken down all of the abilities for every Legend currently in the game. As more Legends are introduced over time, we'll update this article so you have a one-stop resource to stay on top of the emerging meta.
