April 29, 2021

Apex Legends Legacy is nearly here and the new season is giving plenty of new additions for fans to chew on. Between the new Arena mode and the new Legend, Valkyrie, there’s a lot coming to the game.

Apex has added Legends with vertical abilities before with Horizon and Octane, but they’ve never had anything quite like Valkyrie. Adding a character who’s able to fly seems like it might totally change the game.

Here’s everything you need to know about Apex Legends‘ Valkyrie and her abilities.

Respawn has finally officially shown off Valkyrie and her abilities. Included with the full patch notes for Legacy was a written breakdown of what she can do. Here’s her description from the official notes:

Kairi Imahara, the daughter of Apex Predator Viper, salvaged the remains of her father’s Northstar Titan years after his death. With Rampart’s help, she fashioned it into a sleek new jetpack that honors her family’s legacy. Now, she’s entered the Games under the name VALKYRIE.

Use your jetpack to reposition or reach high places. You have limited fuel and cannot use weapons while flying.

Fire a swarm of mini-rockets which damage and disorient the enemy.

Ultimate: Skyward dive

Take to the skies to reposition a long distance across the map. Your squadmates can join in.

Class: Recon
