New Apex Legend Ballistic & His Powers
For the past couple of years, EA and Respawn Entertainment worked together to bring us the most exciting heroes ever. Therefore, there was a new Apex Legend in almost every season of this battle royale game.
Well, season 17 is going to introduce the new Apex Legend Ballistic. This offensive legend has never-before-seen offensive skills that are on another level. Before we describe his powers, you are probably curious to know when you can unlock this character. The new hero is coming on May 9th, 2023!
Now, let’s head on to his abilities. Firstly, Ballistic has three powers in total, just like all the other Legends. The first power, which is his passive, is Sling. Sling will allow the new Apex Legend Ballistic to carry an additional weapon. That’s right, he will carry three weapons in total!
The next skill is his tactical, which is Whistler. This skill shoots a guided projectile toward the enemy. Moreover, this projectile will cause the enemy’s weapon to overheat and therefore deal significant damage.
