Apex Legends first after launch Legend, Octane, arrived along with the Wild Frontier Battle Pass on March 19. Rampant rumors and leaks marked the lead to Octan's entry into Kings Canyon, including the curious case of the launch plates shown in the Market Area on the map.
To release as Octane, you have to spend either 12,000 in-game currency legends or 750 Apex coins ($ 7.50) to unlock him. He is an interesting legend with an even more interesting backstory.
According to his official bio, Octavio "Octane" Silva is the heir to the CEO of Silva Pharmaceuticals who often led to boredom. To entertain himself, he recorded himself "performing killing stunts and posting holovids by them for his fans gawk over."
One of these stunts was fragboosting through Gauntlet seen in Titanfall 2 . In fact, it seems that the Respawn was inspired by the current world record holder in Gauntlet, as octane also threw grenades and used them to run and jump faster. Unfortunately, he told the error and destroyed his legs. Fortunately for him, his pal Lifeline helped him a forgery bionic bone order. The high-tech legs gave him unique healing skills and also let him run faster. Knowing that he could succeed, the 24-year-old decided to try his luck at the Apex games.
Octan's abilities fit perfectly with his need for a constant adrenaline speed. Like all legends, Octane has a passive, tactical and ultimate ability:
Passive: Swift Mend
Octan has one of the best passive abilities of the gang. Swift Mend allows Octane to gradually regenerate health as long as he does not harm. It's a bit of a slow drop, because you only restore a health point every second. The other benefits of Swift Mend is that it saves storage space because you do not have to carry as many health products. In addition, you can let your non-health-promoting teammates have more.
Octan's tactical ability is a perfect encapsulation of how much he is willing to risk to go fast. Enabling Stim increases your speed of movement by 30 percent for six seconds. It may not sound like much, but you can remember to fly players in a hurry or escape yourself. Use of STIM costs 10% of your health, so it is best to use it only when you are foreclosed and not near death.
Ultimate: Launch Pad
Octan's ultimate ability uses a launch pad that you and your teammates can use to launch in the air. It does not send you as high as the red balloon ziplines, but you can vault and clear relatively tall buildings. The problem with Octan's ultimate is that it is not super practical. Wraith's portals are more versatile and useful, and even the Pathfinder's zipline lets you travel with more direction and less striking. It's fun to use, and Octane is about stunts.
Octan's speed-focused abilities make him an ideal legend for those who prefer to do their injuries up close. His tactical ability is incredibly useful in structures and building complexes. Let it face it. It is quite difficult to get the top of someone when they move faster than you. Octan's tactical ability achieves just that, so you can catch opponents. The 10% sacrifice is worth it, considering that you killed your grade, you begin to recreate your health anyway. After all, the speed kills.
This means that Octane can be an absolute machine with weapons such as shotgun, SMG, automatic rifle and even side arms. All weapons that are most effective at close range are ideal for Octan's skill set. Octan's speed of movement through tactical ability and his health care regeneration makes him an excellent alternative to healing as well. No, he is not a replacement for Lifeline, but he offers an interesting skill for your team.
As for his Ultimate, you and your team can use it to sneak up an unsuspecting squad through the air, but Octan's best ability is Stim. It allows you to get a unique edge when used effectively.
