With the release of Apex Legends Season 1 Wild Frontier update, Octane is now available as an unlockable legend in the game. According to Respawn, Octane is a High-speed daredevil who loves to dive, leap, plummet, and race. He is the life of the party.
Octane Abilities — Launch Pad, Stim, and Swift Mend
- Ultimate ability – Launch Pad: Octane can deploy launch pads as his ultimate ability. Much like Pathfinder could deploy long distance zip lines. The launch pads can be used to take high-ground jumps. It can be used by everyone in the game, including your enemies. Once deployed, Octane’s launch pads will remain available throughout the game.
- Tactical ability – Stim: Octane’s tactical ability is a speed enhancement drug that lets him move 30% faster for 6 seconds at the cost of some health. Interestingly, the cooldown for Octane’s tactical ability is only 2 seconds.
- Passive ability – Swift Mend: If Octane’s tactical ability is designed to consume health, it’s only obvious that the legend’s passive ability is something that could restore health. The legend can restore 1 health every 2 seconds when not taking damage. Pretty insane passive ability.
