Season 17 of Respawn Entertainment Apex Legends, Arsenal, starts next week. It adds a new Legend to the roster, new points of interest and changes to World’s Edge, and much more. A new trailer is available, detailing what players can expect with the newest playable Legend, Ballistic.
As part of the Assault class, Ballistic can access supply bins for High-Value Weapon Attachments and carry extra ammo stacks in each inventory slot. Whistler, his Tactical Ability, fires a projectile that heats an enemy’s weapon as they shoot it, damaging them on overheating. Holding the button allows for locking on.
His Passive is Sling, letting him store a third weapon. It can’t use Attachments but feeds into Tempest, Ballistic’s Ultimate. This grants faster reload speed to nearby teammates, faster-unarmed movement speed and infinite ammo. The Sling weapon is also upgraded to Gold rarity, making it much more lethal.
Apex Legends Season 17: Arsenal begins on May 9th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more details en route to release.
