We’re just days away from the release date of the battle royale game Apex Legends Season 17, and recently Respawn Entertainment shared a look at the new hero’s abilities, Ballistic.
As part of the Assault class, the Ballistic character can access high-value weapon attachments and carry additional ammo stacks in each inventory slot, and Whistler, his tactical ability, fires a projectile that heats up the enemy’s weapon during use, damaging it when overheating.
He also has the ability to use the Sling perk, which allows him to stock a third weapon, in addition to his main ability Tempest, which grants fast reloading to nearby teammates, movement speed and unlimited ammo.
It can be said that Ballistic is a former Thunderdome athlete whose career ended with the tragic death of his teammate and brother-in-law. Ballistic has since become a bit lonely, choosing to neglect his family until they leave. Ballistic discovers that his son has qualified for the Apex Games, prompting a deal with the guild to take his son’s place in those competitions for his own safety.
The new season will start under the name Arsenal and will be officially available on May 9.
